It has tables and chairs and awesome views in all directions of the lake and the surrounding woods. The yurt is large enough to sleep nine on beds and more on sleeping bags on the floor of the loft but it is also warm and intimate enough to be comfortable for a couple of couples, as a romantic luxury but rustic getaway for a honeymoon or anniversary couple, or even for a single person who wants to experience the respite and unearthly glow of a canvas yurt and its geometric structure as the light changes with the time of day and the weather. The Eagle Yurt is like nowhere you have ever stayed before!

About Owner / Property Manager

Wilderness Wind is owned and operated by Chicago Voyagers, a nonprofit that provides outdoor active experiences to urban youth that would not otherwise have access to such opportunities. Youth participate in biking, hiking, rock climbing, camping, and river and lake canoe paddling trips. Included are trips into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness that include wilderness canoeing, portaging, outdoor meal preparation, camping, navigation, and appreciation of the unique habitats of the BWCAW. Kids develop self confidence and are specifically taught leadership and teamwork skills. Your stay at our beautiful yurt helps support these programs for Chicago Voyagers kids! Thanks!

Owner / Property Manager purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Ely

Staying at our rustic yurt offers guests a chance to experience the same flora and fauna of the Boundary Waters that the youth participants experience but with the comfort of comfortable beds, kitchens, a composting toilet, and nearby hot showers in the bath house. Guests can paddle canoes on the lake and enjoy a campfire, hear the call of loons, enjoy sunsets over the water, and in doing so, feel a little closer to our natural world.

The canvas walls of the yurt and the radial roof supports and crisscross lath support of the walls are beautiful both night and day. The ivory canvas seems to glow on a sunny day, and whatever the conditions, the mood inside changes as the light outside changes. You'll want to get out into nature, but staying inside this fantastic structure is pretty wonderful too!

What makes this cabin unique

Rustic log cabins, this beautiful yurt, secluded site, Lake Armstrong shoreline, lake access for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, proximity to BWCAW and Mesabi Trail, sunset views, naturalistic landscaping, quiet respite to connect with nature.
