About the Property
Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-5)
Wildloon Log Home:
The featured log home is Wildloon, a 2 bedroom luxury log home. Originally Wildloon was a 1920's hand-hewn log lodge, built in the Boundary waters. In 1993, it was strategically placed on a rock outcropping facing the lake surrounded by red and white pines. The view from the front porch is spectacular--a great place to have morning coffee, watch the hummingbirds, or enjoy a glass of wine with the sunset in the evening. While maintaining the natural character of the lodge, Wildloon has become your luxury vacation home. The unique gourmet kitchen includes many conveniences: microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, kitchen-aide mixer, electric griddle, and an antique style 6-burner gas stove. The gas grill out back is ready for your freshly caught walleye. The upstairs of this tri-level log home features a full bathroom and two bedrooms--one with a queen log bed, the other with a full log bed. The back stone porch includes a full-sized futon along with a second bath with shower. Sleeps 6
Wildloon is set in a wilderness location, 20 miles from even a gas station. We have 20 acres of mature pine forest and 1300 feet of water. Loon's Echo Wilderness Retreat is located just 3 miles West of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Northern Minnesota. It is about 50 miles WEST of Ely and 40 miles EAST of Orr, Minnesota. It is like you have a cabin at your wilderness campsite. Forget your worries as you relax on our porch, gaze at the sunset, or listen to the loons. We have paddled the four miles up to Table Rock falls and never saw another canoe or boat. We are very secluded. It is like having a luxury log home on your campsite in the wilderness. Come and enjoy the beauty and solitude of the BWCAW from the comfort of our log home! Canoes and mountain bikes are included with your rental of our Wildloon Log Home.
Loon's Echo Wilderness Retreat has 20 acres and 1300 feet of waterfront is available for your use. We are located on the chain of lakes of the wild and scenic Vermilion River (Vermilion River Lake) and only a few miles from the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness and Voyageur National Park. There are numerous waterfalls and rapids within a few hours paddle of the retreat. You can hike or snowshoe our 20 miles of trails. There are over 100 miles of abandoned logging roads that offer additional hiking and excellent mountain biking opportunities. Points of interest include: Table Rock Falls, Vermilion Falls, Vermilion River Gorge, Astrid Lake Trails, and Devils' Cascade Trail. Majestic bluffs, hidden lakes, waterfalls, berry patches and a canoe paddle to ancient Indian pictographs will lure you onto the water and into the wilderness.

Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: Pete and Maggie have been vacationing in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness since 1972. Maggie took care of Loon's Echo Wilderness Retreat in the summers at first, teaching science in Illinois during the school year. Now they have build their dream home on the property and continue to enjoy sharing Wildloon with their guests.
Why the Owner Chose Orr, MN, USA:
We first visited Loon's Echo Wilderness Retreat in 1998 when both our boys were in college. It was an empy nest fall trip that turned into an adventure of a lifetime. We found this piece of wilderness that reminded us of the Boundary Waters Wilderness. It is like having a cabin on your campsite in the Boundary Waters. Since Maggie retired in 2010, the Jungs built 'Sunset Ridge' where they stay while they rent out the Wildloon Log home. Come enjoy the quiet of the wilderness from the comfort of our log cabin.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Wildloon was originally built in 1920 in Ely. It was moved to our location overlooking the water in 1993. It is a great place to sit on the porch and watch the hummingbirds, hike in the woods, canoe to Table Rock Falls, fish, or relax in one of our screen houses. This is a true wilderness experience with all the comforts of home.
