8 Bedrooms & 1.50 Baths- A Log Cabin & Sauna House All On 42 Private Acres
Strand Island is a private 45 acre island located on 11,000 acre Pelican Lake in Orr, Minnesota... 3 hours and 40 minutes from Minneapolis. The 108 year old fully remodeled main cabin has 8 bedrooms- each bedroom has it's own antique sink. There are 1.50 baths, a totally remodeled kitchen with two refrigerators and two freezers, a stone fireplace, a sunroom and a huge screened porch with card tables and 4 swinging beds suspended from the ceiling… There is also a sauna house with a shower, a washer and dryer and a 75 year old log cabin that sleeps four and has a card table.
There are two other out buildings... one is a game room with a air hockey table and the other is a TV cabin or movie house with a large screen TV... we do not have cable TV, but we have an Apple TV loaded with tons of movies for rainy days!
The island is 45 totally private acres, undeveloped and wild- explore the woods or cast a line off the dock. This is the only home on the island!! The 11,000 acre Pelican Lake is excellent for crappie and bass fishing, boating or water sports.
Need a boat? We can rent you our pontoon for $500 a week- it is not fancy, but it gets the job done! It is 21 foot pontoon with a 50 horse motor & our caretaker will meet you at the dock with the pontoon to give you tips on operation.... or you can bring your own boats to fish or ski. There are 5 large parking spots on the mainland at Deer Lodge and a dock to easily load up the boat when you arrive Strand Island is about a 10 minute boat ride from the dock at Deer Lodge... or about 1 mile from mainland. The island will be all yours to roam, fish, play or pick raspberries in total seclusion.
Kayak around the 9500 feet of shoreline or out to the nearby state park on Big Island- a 210 acre nearby island owned by the State of Mn. You have the entire island to yourself- no other cabins on the island- play, explore, hike or fish one of several private bays.
There are two kayaks there for your use and a flat bottom metal row boat.
There is large grass field as well... to play wiffle ball or football for the kids.

Why Nicole Wolfe chose Orr
We saw the aerial shot of Strand Island and were amazed enough to go take a look- the idea of a 42 private island I think appeals to anyone- it is wild, private and the home has the unique character of a 100 + year old lodge... we fell in love with it.
What makes this Cabin unique
alone on a private island- lots of benefits!!

Sports & Adventure Activities
Our week on the island was filled with fun, and the many options the setting offered made it even better. We were a large and varied group of family and friends, and everyone had a place to be and something to do. It rained one whole day and it didn't even matter! The sauna was wonderful after a hard day of fishing and playing. We got back yesterday and I already miss it!
I had my family and my friends in from MN,VA and IA for the week at Strand. We all had a great time relaxing, eating, fishing, and drinking. We all plan to return next year for a week of relaxation.
Beautiful place, private, lots to do.
Very historic, tons of places to explore. Nothing else like it.
If you are looking for total relaxation and quality family time Strand Island is the place. The home and amenities are amazing. The pictures on the website are spot on. Could not have been more pleased with the amenities. Our family of 10 adults and 3 small children took advantage of all the island had to offer. We would gladly return for another vacation.
It was amazing!
The island is beautiful and beyond private.
The is set up great for a large crowds and us very comfortable.
Unique stay in complete solitude
We recently rented this property the first week in Oct for a family getaway (7 adults, 2 kids). As soon as we arrived, we were blown away by the beauty of the lake and then the property itself. The main house is decorated so beautifully and has everything you could need. There was plenty of space to have everyone spread out. We were initially worried about only having two bathrooms for a large group of people but having sinks in each room was perfect. It was never a problem. All of the additional out buildings are a lot of fun and add to the uniqueness of the property. I recommend utilizing the kayaks and taking a trip around the island. Overall it was a wonderful stay with zero stress. I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a special place to get away from it all.
