About the Property
Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)
Burns Lake Cabin is a luxurious gorgeous, lakeshore, executive log home on 70 acres of private woodland surrounded by Chippewa National Forest! Relax and de-stress in absolute privacy and north woods beauty. Burns is one of the most beautiful lakes in the area (about 350 acres). This hand-scribed log home was built by executives who loved the woods and is meticulously maintained. You will never find a lovelier setting for your ultimate relaxation in the wilderness. Listen to the lake, paddle in the kayaks, fish, soak in the hot tub, ski, snowshoe, hike, hunt, or mountain bike on logging roads and private paths. We're open all year!
All bathrooms are tiled and luxurious. Relax in the 24 foot tall great room with the full-height fireplace. Gourmet cooks will love the kitchen - with calphalon professional cookwear. The house has been completely refurnished, with oriental rugs and luxurious leather furniture, a home gym, lounge area with wet bar, and rustic log beds by a local artist, with a new chimney, roof and log staining in 2015. Burns Lake Cabin even has an automatic back-up generator system, so no power failures will mar your vacation!
Year round, this beautiful cabin at the center of Minnesota sports and recreation country is available for your vacation of a lifetime. There is something for everyone! Sports enthusiasts will love the boating, fishing, hunting, golf, kayaking, sailing, swimming, running, hiking, snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross country skiing, just outside your door. The more restrained will have a wonderful time strolling on logging roads, canoeing, gently cycling and walking along miles of national forest paths and roads. Then come home for a picnic by the water.
The Chippewa National Forest in northern Minnesota covers a huge proportion of Itasca County. We live among hundreds of thousands of acres of wilderness and very little private land. The Forest itself consists of 1.6 million acres, and hosts the largest population of nesting bald eagles in the lower 48 states. During your stay, you may see osprey, eagles, pileated woodpeckers, hawks, red foxes and of course lovely white tail deer. winter evenings think about the great day outdoors and curl up in front of your own huge stone fireplace with hot gingerbread and coffee, a mystery novel or the love of your life!

About the owner: I'm a researcher and an author (Martha Grace Reese), my husband is a consultant for not-for-profit boards of directors. We love our land and the lakes in the north woods! We kayak as many of the 1000 lakes in our county as we can. Please come north to join us in the most gorgeous place on earth!
Why the Owner Chose Marcell, MN, USA:
Burns Lake Cabin is 'next door' to the cabin we built and live in - 'next door' is 1/2 mile down our private road and a mile through woods from the public road! We have 70 acres of prime woodland and over 3000 feet of shoreline. Burns Lake Cabin is at the end of the property, in the oldest, most beautiful woods, and right next to Chippewa National Forest. So you, as our guest, share our home woods and the place we love best in the world. Burns Lake is gorgeous (and great fishing!), the woods are so quiet and peaceful - the house is one of the most beautiful and elegant in the area. Unlimited long distance calls, Wifi and cable TV included.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Fishing, boating, swimming, sailing, long walks in the woods, over private roads. We love hiking, snowshoeing, nordic skiing! We have a terrific restaurant in the area, and one of the most exciting live theaters and art galleries in Minnesota (go figure!) Come join us!
