Wolf Cabin is Wilderness Wind's smallest and most secluded cabin on the shore of Lake Armstrong. This adorable one bedroom cabin with kitchenette and kitchen table is at the end of the road and is quiet and private but has access to all the amenities of the Wilderness Wind resort. The kitchen sink has cold running water and a half refrigerator, a stove, and a microwave. Hot showers, lavatory sinks, and latrine toilets are a short walk though lively birch woods in the bathhouse. Down the grassy path in front is the swimming area with lakeside seating for sunset viewing, access to canoes and kayaks, and a fire pit for bonfires. This cabin is a special intimate place for a couple looking for a romantic getaway from which to base hiking and biking on the Mesabi Trail and day trip canoeing in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Shopping for apparel, outdoor gear, and local art can be found in Ely as well as some really fine quality dining experiences. Want to get away alone and get in tough with nature and your quiet side? This a great solo cabin for journaling, photography day trips, working on art or planning projects, catching up on your reading, or just plain relaxing in a beautiful natural setting.
Wolf Cabin sleeps 2 in a secluded setting on the shore of Lake Armstrong.

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, wayfinding, 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 cabin helps support these programs! Thanks!

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Ely
Staying at our rustic cabins 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, and nearby hot showers and toilets 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.

A cozy, secluded cabin on a lovely lake
Wolf cabin was terrific! My wife and I stayed for a long weekend and enjoyed our experience very much. The Wilderness Wind staff were responsive and helpful, and the cabin itself was prepped and ready to go when we arrived. We enjoyed cooking in the cabin, and we took several scenic canoe/kayak trips around the lake. Really enjoyed our stay. Thanks to the staff for a great time!
It may be prudent to pack all your own pots/pans, plates/bowls, and utensils if you expect to be doing an amount of cooking here: the cabin's kitchen, though equipped with most basic tools and staples, is outfitted a little randomly. We found no forks, for example, minimal pots/pans, an incomplete collection of plates/bowls, and a fairly arbitrary assortment of cooking tools. We made do successfully and weren't personally troubled by this (we packed backup kitchenware in case of this) -- but be aware of the kitchen's spare and rustic nature if you plan to cook here! Bring what you'll need just to be safe.
We spent our 30th Anniversary at the Wolf cabin and loved it!
We loved the disconnection from our daily life and the peacefulness it brought us. The cabin was quaint. The lake was stunning! The bath house needs improvements. Very clean but the methane gas could be overwhelming at times. Maybe add some pipes to the outside might help.
Cute cabin. Loved it.
Quiet and beautiful getaway!
We really enjoyed our stay at Wilderness Wind. The location is great and so are the cabins. We swam and kayaked in the lake, which were provided for free. There's also a great view of the lake. Very peaceful!
Great little cabin, right on the lake.
A sweet little cabin overlooking the lake. Lots to do. Motorboat, kayaks, rowboat, available to use. Clean lake for fishing and swimming. The bathroom was outside the cabin, but was only about 40 steps away. Every night there was a bonfire, where guests gathered. Lots to do in nearby Ely. Jay was always available to help with anything. We would stay there again!
The cabin was all we needed for comfort and privacy. The lake was breathtaking especially the beautiful sunsets. Enjoyed watching the ducks, muskrats and listening to the loons singing. We were treated like family by everyone in camp. Great experience and certainly worth coming back, which we will do.
