About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, Not Specified Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

The Sundew Cabin is a remote cabin bordering the BWCA Wilderness Area. You will have complete privacy with NO neighbors, just deer, moose and wolves. The cabin and sauna are handcrafted with logs by the owner. It is located on a wildlife pond, not a recreational lake. It is paradise for people interested in bog orchids, hearing bitterns, hearing wolf howls, and complete quiet. It is close to Pickerel Lake, from which there is direct BWCA access (Kawishiwi River). Pickerel is good for swimming and fishing, as well.
The cabin is rustic and cozy. It has solar lights, propane cooking and refrigeration. The toilet is a simple outhouse and bathing is done in a traditional Finnish steam sauna.
We provide a canoe at Pickerel Lake and you can paddle and portage to many lakes surrounding the cabin.
The cabin is open during the winter also. It is fully insulated and has great back country cross country skiing.
The cabin is located east of Ely about 10 miles from town, north of Pickerel Lake and south of Fall Lake.
PLEASE NOTE: 3 night minimum

Owner info

About the owner: Steve Lampman, a Rochester, Minnesota native and Liz Schendel, originally from St. Louis Park, Minnesota moved to Ely in the 1970s. They were drawn to the area because of the beautiful scenery, slow pace, friendly people, and the wonderful outdoor opportunities. In 1989 they began renting out remote log cabins hand crafted by Steve to provide peaceful getaways for others.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Since the Sundew Cabin is located right on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area there are many unique outdoor activities right outside the cabin door. During the summer months we enjoy paddling, fishing, hiking, and relaxing outside. The winter provides good skiing and snowshoeing. It is common to glimpse moose, wolves, beavers, bears, many birds, and other animals all times of the year. Another great aspect of our cabin is that there are no telephones, TVs, internet, or any other technological distraction to interfere with exploring and family time.
