A Minnesotan summer is a quintessential American summer.
And on the banks of crystal-clear Strawberry Lake in the far Up North, our one-bedroom, one-bath Strawberry Lake cabin will entice even the most digitally connected guests to step away and enjoy the great outdoors like kids on summer vacation!
Built by local craftsmen in 2013, our Strawberry Lake Cabin sits at the edge of Strawberry Lake, which is beautiful in all seasons but holds a special charm in summertime. The air is warm, the sun shines bright and clear, and the deep green foliage dapples the glassy lake. Enjoy all of this lush scenery from the spacious deck under the trees at Strawberry Lake Cabin—from morning coffee to evening glass of wine.
Inside, an open common area, including a fully-stocked and gleaming new kitchen, faces cathedral windows overlooking the deck, the woods, and the lake. These windows span the width of the house, all the way up to the lofted sleeping area, which is perched just at the tree line.
A RETREAT FOR COUPLES & FRIENDS
Couples love it here at our Strawberry Lake Cabin—no matter the season.
Experience the easy romance of tucking into nature together and shaking off the stresses of everyday life. From the loft bedroom, views of an unpolluted Minnesota sky full of stars will lull you into a deep sleep, and the green woods filled with birdsong will greet you first thing in the morning.
Friends’ getaways—complimented by a bottle of Minnesota wine, maybe?—find a wonderful setting here, as well.
And small families appreciate our Strawberry Lake Cabin—as well as the many family-friendly activities on the property and nearby. To make your family retreat easy, we provide a highchair, a baby crib, and a washer/dryer for warm, fresh clothes for the family mid-week.
No matter who you’re traveling with, we highly recommend a canoe trip out on Strawberry Lake. We provide the canoe for you! And the water here is calm and peaceful, with less motorboat traffic than on many of the lakes in this area. Not to mention the water clarity: spring-fed Strawberry Lake is so clear, you can see almost 17 feet straight down to the bottom!
In summer, the Tamarac Lake National Wildlife Refuge, located just three miles away, comes alive and is spectacular place for a hike or a bike ride. When you get back from outdoor adventuring, heat up the gas or charcoal grill and get your energy back with a perfectly cooked lakeside burger.
As the sun starts to sink and the stars pop out, prepare the fire pit for a heavenly dessert of—what else?—gooey toasted s’mores over a crackling flame. The cool air of Minnesota summers makes fireside chats comfortable long into the evening.
MAKE NEW MEMORIES WITH US
There’s a timeless quality to Strawberry Lake and Northern Minnesota. As the setting for many of my own happy childhood memories (and the place where I proposed to my wife), the woods and lakes Up North hold a special place in my heart. I love being able to share the magic of this place with others—at a cabin built by people who live here in the area, too.
We’ve decorated the house with items that mean a lot to us, collected locally and around the world.
Be charmed by Strawberry Lake Cabin and the wild places of Minnesota!
NEW BOATING EXPERIENCE
Past guests have asked us if we had a boat they could use. Now, we are excited to announce we have the option of a boat and motor to help you explore and fish Strawberry Lake! Available for rent, is our 14 ft. fishing boat and 9.9 hp motor at a flat rate.
Our complimentary canoe continues to be available for you to enjoy.
