About the property

2 Bedroom Cabin Surrounded by Beautiful Lakeshore

The Property

Built in 2006, this open, lofted cabin is the perfect lake retreat for one person, couples and small families. With 330 degrees views of the water, our private peninsula is as close to vacationing on a Northwoods island as you can get without leaving shore. Prairie Lake is a hidden gem with low boat traffic perfect for paddle boarding and kayaking, a rocky gorge reminiscent of the Boundary Waters, rich wildlife, and prime fishing. Our sandy beach on the point has a gradual slope and is great for swimming and soaking up the sun. We have two docks and space for two boats. There is a firepit on the point and one closer to the cabins for evening bonfires or cooking.

The Cabin

The cabin is a combination of modern and rustic, with a quality king sized bed in the loft, a cozy living and dining space and clean kitchen with basic cooking amenities, including a refrigerator/freezer, single induction cooktop, microwave, french press and drip coffee machine, toaster and charcoal BBQ immediately out front. We provide all of the essentials for a comfortable stay, including bath and beach towels, linens and extra blankets, kitchen items, and wi-fi. The Mallard Point neighborhood is great for getting out for a walk or run and the convenience store/bait shop and public boat access are just a half mile away. Entrances to the Taconite Trail and Mesabi Trail, one of the longest paved trails in the nation, are less than two miles away, making this an ideal place to begin your cycling trip to the northern reaches of Minnesota! Although the expansive lake views give the feeling of seclusion, we're just five miles from shops and dining in downtown Grand Rapids and minutes from national forests, cycling, mountain biking, snowmobiling and ATV trails, and so many other outdoor adventures.

Shared Spaces

Please note that this is one of two cabins we have available for rent on our property. The two cabins and our own home are located adjacent to one another and outdoor spaces are shared. We live here with our three young children. You can expect to see us and other guests during your stay. We are family friendly. *All are welcome here*

Pet Policy

We are pet-friendly, but are firm on our rules about pets. Pets must stay off of furniture and beds. Topical flea/tick treatments and flea/tick collars are not allowed as these pose a health risk to other guests. We use chemical-free maintenance methods on our property and pets are no exception. Our pet fee is $30.


We allow events with the rental of both cabins. Our event fee is $500.

About Emily Bujold

After living in afar in Australia, Micronesia, and Japan and nearby in Wisconsin and Minneapolis, in busy urban centers and quietly afloat in the Pacific, the water was our grounding, our inspiration, and our source of renewal. Shortly after starting our family we began our mission to find a place on the water. After extensive searching, we realized it was just a short paddle across the lake from James’ childhood home here on Prairie Lake. We invite you to share this special place with us and soak up all the goodness the Northwoods has to offer.

Emily Bujold purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Emily Bujold chose Grand Rapids

The Point is such a unique place. James had admired it from across the lake throughout his childhood and it didn't take long for me to fall in love with it as well. It's like island living without all of the inconveniences of actually living on an island (which we did for awhile!) It feels away from it all but we're part of a quaint neighborhood that's just minutes from downtown, we have lakeshore to explore and admire in all directions, ultimate access to water that beckons adventure throughout the seasons, a humbling connection with the wildlife, and a peaceful place to spend time with friends and family.

What makes this cabin unique

Prairie Lake is a calm lake with little boat traffic. It really is a treasure for paddle sports, fishing, sunset pontoon rides and other passive activities, with quiet shorelines and places for exploration, such as small bays and The Gorge. And when you do want to get out water skiing, you have the place to yourself ;) We're also located close to everything, with downtown 10 minutes in one direction and the national forest 10 minutes in the other direction.

Just Right for Our Family of 6

  • 5 of 5

Such a quiet lake, with beautiful surroundings. Our 4 boys loved the small sandy beach area...played there for hours. We also enjoyed the kayaks and even a pontoon ride one evening! The owners are available and very helpful. The cabin was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The only reason we wouldn't stay here again, is that we like to find new locations to travel to. Thanks so much for the stay, it was a pleasure to meet you all :)

Great fishing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at one of the cabins on The Point this summer. My husband truly enjoyed starting and ending every day with fishing. He fished from the shore, the piers, the kayaks, and our boat that we easily put in the lake down the road a short ways. It was like heaven on earth for a fisherman who wishes he lived on the water back home sometimes! The property truly had a great shoreline and view of the lake from so many angles. My daughter and I enjoyed the beach and the lake as well.

The cabin itself was just what we’d expected, only more spacious than we could’ve imagined. It was spotless when we arrived. The beds were very comfortable and there were a few fans to keep the fresh northwoods air flowing through the windows. I appreciated all of the little extras like nontoxic hand and dish soap as well as shampoo and conditioner waiting in the shower, a USB plug-in hub for our phones to charge near the bed, fast WIFi, and a kitchen stocked with everything we needed for cooking a meal or two a day.

If you are looking for the perfect lake getaway to relax, go fishing, enjoy nature and swim, then this is the place for you! We’ll be going back, that’s for sure.
