Ely cabin description

Moccasin Island is actually a pair of small secluded islands (totaling a little less than one acre) and are located on Burntside Lake. They are private and quiet and are about four miles from a public landing. Burntside Lake is one of the 5 designated “Valuable Resource Waters” in Minnesota. It is wonderfully clear and well populated with Lake Trout, Walleye, Northern Pike, and Bass.

The cabin is located on the larger island and includes a kitchen, living room, and two bedrooms with two twin beds in each. The unfinished attic has two additional twin beds and makes a great hideout for the kids! The cabin also has a large full width deck near the water’s edge, perfect for dining outside and watching Loons, Beaver, Osprey and the occasional Bald Eagle

A footbridge with a large boathouse and deck connects the islands. The deck is built out over the water, provides a great place for fishing and swimming. The smaller island has a screen house with a small deck that overlooks the water, a favorite sleeping spot for some visitors. The moonrise is magical and northern lights can be a bonus.

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is within sight of the island. Canoes are included, and it is a short paddle to the BWCA if you wish to make a day trip.

The Island is rustic but comfortable. The lights, stove, oven, and refrigerator all operate on propane gas and there is no electricity or running water. The outhouse is tidy and “civilized” and a solar shower is available for washing. Paved paths connect the cabin to the facilities and the boathouse.

Fine dining is available at Burntside Lodge – a scenic15 minute trip by boat. Ely is a lively community with many shops and restaurants. The Wolf Center and the Bear Center are also worth visiting. Tower, located about 22 miles from Ely, offers tours of the old underground mines. The Ely golf course 25 miles west.

Rent is $1,150 per week from June through Labor Day. 50% at booking balance at arrival.

Bring your own boat and motor or call us for options.


*Sorry, but due to the islands’ fragile ecosystem, we are no longer taking pets.
