Overview

Minnesota Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom + 2nd story loft (sleeps 7-9), 3/4 bath + electric for a 5th wheel.

Nestled in the woods along beautiful Trout Lake, the Northern JEM is truly a place to relax and unwind. It offers something for everyone -- abundant fishing (right off the dock - great for kids!), a great lake for water skiing and tubing, and lots of wildlife. You can watch bald eagles fish and feed their young in the pine tree next to the dock! Start or end your day with incredible sunrises and sunsets over pristine waters.... what more could you ask for?!

Trout Lake is a moderate sized lake (approx. 1900 acres with 13.5 miles of shoreline) and if you enjoy fishing, it is a good place to wet your line. The lake was stocked for many years with walleye and also offers northern pike, rock bass, sunfish, perch, and blue gills. The lake's topography provides for excellent fishing with a maximum depth of approx. 135 feet - lots of shelves and rolling terrain make the challenge of landing a trophy fish all the more fun! Water clarity and quality is very good.

Trout Lake is also a water skier's dream! The lake is 4.5 miles long, so you can ski and tube for hours without being interrupted by other boats and jet skis. The lake is not heavily populated so you will not encounter much boat traffic, other than those trolling along a shelf line hoping too to land a big one!

The lake has two public boat launches and beaches -- one on the north end off of Hwy 169 and the other is located immediately across the lake from our dock. Your rental includes the use of a canoe, 2 kayaks, life jackets, and paddles. You are welcome to tie your motor boat to the dock. There also is power available by the dock for live wells.

If fishing and swimming aren't your thing, you can spend hours reading in solitude or observing lots of wildlife, including eagles, hawks, osprey, a family of deer, hummingbirds, pileated woodpeckers, loons, an occasional raccoon or beaver, as well as the always curious chipmunks.

The Edge of the Wilderness Scenic Byway begins in Grand Rapids and ends 47 miles north in Effie. Travel this spectacular, winding byway by many pristine lakes, forests, swamps, rolling hills, and other unique features.

Outdoor recreation, including miles of marked hiking trails, and interpretive sites are waiting to be explored. During fall, the north woods is adorned with the brilliant colors of red sugar maples, bronze oak trees and glowing gold aspen and birch. Little outposts and antique shops exist along the way. The Chippewa National Forest and the Suomi Trails offer miles of paved trails for hiking, biking and rollerblading.

Learn about Judy Garland, born Frances Ethel Gumm, at her birthplace and childhood home in Grand Rapids, including a very interesting exhibit at the Itasca County Museum. Step into pages from the past and discover the history of the logging era at the Minnesota Forest History Center. Here you can climb a 100' fire tower and see for miles! The Children's Discovery Museum offers great entertainment for younger children. You can also take tours of the Blandin Paper Mill (located on the Mississippi River) and the Hill Annex Mine & State Park. Hibbing, Minnesota, hometown of music legend Bob Dylan, is less than a 1/2 hour drive away and there you can visit the Bob Dylan Collection, found in the Hibbing Library.

If golf is your game, several well-maintained 18-hole golf courses provide championship play -- Eagle Ridge, Pokegama & Sugarbrooke. Four 9-hole courses are also in the area. Grand Rapids is home to the annual Grand Slam Amateur Golf Tournament, held each year on the 3rd weekend of August.

Several day trips can also be planned. The Mississippi River Headwaters are about a 90 minute drive to the west and Duluth and the North Shore are just over an hour to the south and east. The edge of the Mesabi Iron Range and the north woods has a lot to offer. Come and stay for a while -- you won't want to go home!

The property was pristine, the setting beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Judy and I so enjoyed the Northern Jem, the privacy, the clean, beautifully decorated cabin with thoughtful accomodations

and supplies, furnished so lovely....with thoughtfulness and taste. Everything worked well and we truly felt like

home. We also so enjoyed the dock and the canoe and the outside fire. With the loons and the beauty of the virgin

lake, clean and natural with deer to greet us in the morning on the property, we just cannot say enough how

we treasured this visit. We would like to return at some point. Thank you Nick and Linda Rose for making

our retreat everything we had hope for and more.

Picture perfect up north

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely happy with the location and cabin itself. The view was unbeatable and trout lake provided. We caught off the dock and when we took the boat out. It was what a cabin experience should be. Wish we could've stayed longer.

Relaxing at the cabin!

  • 4 of 5

The property is well maintained and as pictured. Nick was very easy to work with and replied promptly to inquires about the rental.

There are 68 stairs from the cabin to the lake - something to think about if steps aren't your thing. Would be great if there was a screened in porch or larger deck, otherwise it was a fine destination for a few days stay.
