About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Enjoy our three bedroom cabin set up on a hill overlooking the lovely Little Yellow Lake, midway between Danbury and Webster and 30 minutes to Hinckley. The cabin is the true 'up north' feel with knotty pine and hardwood floors, taxidermy on the walls and antiques and log furniture through out the cabin.

Every bedroom has a sliding glass door that opens to a deck that overlooks the lake, great for the morning coffee. The main deck off the living room is huge and has a large hot tub and a barbeque for your afternoon relaxation. Off the dining area is a large screened in porch for the evening conversations and meals and also to keep the bugs away!

The cabin rests on 3 acres and has 317 feet of lakeshore to enjoy. There is a newer pontoon boat available for either cruising the lake or trying your luck on the excellent fishing. There is also a trail down to the lake if you want to drop in your own boat.

The cabin was recently updated to a high standard and includes a washer a dryer in the cabin. The kitchen and bathroom are new and are well stocked with incidentals. Come stay with us, you won't be disappointed!

2015 Rates. $250.00 per night w/ two night minimum or $1500.00 per week. ONLY WEEKLY RENTALS BETWEEN MEMORIAL DAY AND LABOR DAY.

Questions people ask!

Pontoon is included with a prepaid $35.00 gas fee, we purchased the boat in 2012

CENTRAL AIR installed 2012, thank my wife!!!!

New monster grill 2012.

It is not a sandy lake, I have 3 kids and we swim in close by Siren with a great park and sandy beach.

There is a flat screen with satellite only in the living room.

There is no wifi, there is a coffee shop in town with wifi hot spots.

But most importantly fishing is almost always awesome!!!!!!!

We are a clean as you go cabin. I expect everyone to clean 1 hour per person per week, we supply the cleaning supplies OR I have someone in town who cleans for $100. Most people prefer this route, it is easiest!!!

About The Owner

Wife and I were looking for a nice place to stay and stumbled across this cabin, we weren't looking to buy a place that day, but this place was so special, we could not say no! I hope you enjoy the cabin as much as we have in the short time.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why The Owner chose Northwest

We bought this cabin because it is tucked in the pines, yet has great views of the lake, plus the recent updating makes the condition of the property unbelievable

What makes this cabin unique

Large screened porch is great for evening dinners and conversation. The decks are huge and enjoy the hot tub while looking at the lake. The fishing is great!

Little Yellow Lake 'Up North Feel!'
average rating of 4.25 based on 8 reviews

Just relax and enjoy the view!

  • 4 of 5

This incredible get-away in the midst of a secluded, wooded setting is where you can really relax and unwind. The view is unbelievable and can be enjoyed from every room, even the hot tub!

The cabin has an open concept and is very comfortable for bigger groups. We loved the all the knotty pine and up north decor so tastefully done. The rooms upstairs get a little warm but we took advantage of the air conditioning on a couple of the warmer days.

We loved using the pontoon and brought our own canoe to paddle down the Yellow River. If you can do this, don't miss it. It's just down the shore a bit to the mouth of the river.

The hill to the lake is steep but the hidden paved road along side the cabin is very convenient to launch a boat or carry things down to the lake. Once down at the lake, there is a big open grassy space to spread out and play lawn games etc. The beach is a little weedy but there is a sand bar on the lake great for swimming fun!

As soon as you are back home, you will be dreaming about this place and when you can go up again.

Review #14907116 “Little Yellow Lake 'Up North Feel!'”

Great stay, great owners, great trip

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Our family of 6 stayed here for almost two weeks. We wish we could have stayed longer. We traveled throughout the county and to Minneapolis, (an easy trip), It was a wonderful experience. There were so many things to do and so many places to visit, yet we all would have been happy never leaving the property. The owner is wonderful and did the very best to make us comfortable like it was our home and that is how we felt. We always drove down the paved drive to the lakeshore due to our handicapped child, but our boys had no problem walking.

The cabin is so comfortable and convenient, we were pleased. The screen room was a blessing to the smokers in our family and the gratis Pontoon boat was exceptional. I wish the Yellow lake association would find a way to modify the bridge to allow a connection from Little to Big Yellow lake. Nevertheless, the whole experience was delightful.

We highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a get-away vacation or the Northwoods experience. I can't really think of anything that this cabin doesn't have to accomodate a nice stay. An internet connection/wifi would ave been desirable. Our family wanted to see everything the area had to offer and had to use our cell phones to access Google. I guess my only negative would be the lack of internet service, but depending upon your vacation desires, that may be a blessing.

My recommendation is to stay here as long as you can afford because from our experience, a short time seems seriously inadequate. The owners are more than willing to make your stay comfortable and have personnel in the area to assist with any issues you have. We would be very happy to return whenever finances allow.

2 couples at Little Yellow Lake

  • 5 of 5

Loved the steam coming off the water in the early October morning…with the eagles flying over head. Beds were comfortable, and the kitchen had everything you needed to make a gourmet meal ….could have used some wine glasses but had everything else! Loved the beautiful wood paneling, the dining room table with drawers from an orphanage, and the touches of nature on the door handles. Great deck overlooking the water and fantastic piece of property....very private. Nice dry wood found in garage for the fire pit with chairs to look up at the tub overlooking lake was awesome !! Bike riding to Danbury on The Gandy Dancer Trail located nearby made for a fun activity.

Perfect week on the lake

  • 5 of 5

I just got back from a great week on the lake with my family. We all loved it. The house was perfect with plenty of room and a real cabin feel. The huge deck was perfect for morning coffee and dinners in the evening. Having the use of the pontoon was the real highlight of our trip! Found the sand bar and spent a lot of time in the water throwing frisbees and lounging in floaties.

Great Deal

  • 5 of 5

This House is wonderful, we wanted to stay longer. It felt like home the minute we walked in. They have thought of everything, all you need are clothes and food. The pontoon was great, we fished everyday and just enjoyed being at the lake. The path down to the lake is steep and we are older so we drove down with no problem. The caretaker was more than helpful. We will be back next year.

Great week on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this cabin last week. The view of the lake from the deck was beautiful. We had many cups of coffee and meals on the deck. The grill was great. We watched fish jump and had a great time watching the resident eagle. He (she) went out at dawn and came back at dusk and would call to the other eagles on the lake. We also heard loons. The pontoon was very nice and so easy to take out. We fished Devil's, Little Yellow and Big Yellow lake and caught & released some really nice fish. We loved having a washer & dryer and all the toys and movies for our daughter. The cabin was clean and we felt right at home. We will be staying here again for sure.
