Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are Sheldon and Mary, the proud owners of Elbow Lake Lodge on beautiful Big Elbow Lake. Since 2007 we have owned and managed Knotty Pines Resort, a 10 cabin resort with a campground on Boulder Lake in the Park Rapids area (approx. 40 miles from the Lodge). We hope that families will come and enjoy Elbow Lake Lodge as much as they have our resort. We would like to share this beautiful Lodge, and look forward to meeting new guests and making new friends. As the parents of five children and thirteen grand children, we can think of no better place to make those special family memories than at the lake.

Why the Owner Chose Waubun, MN, USA:
This property holds special memories for Sheldon as he started vacationing on Big Elbow with his family in the late 50's. Sheldon also has three cousins on the lake . Elbow Lake Lodge is a log sided cabin built in 1948 and is one of the first cabins on the lake. It was used as a cabin and hunting lodge over the years and has a historic, cozy stone fireplace. The peaceful north-woods ambiance as you drive on to the property. The lake view is very beautiful from the great room, deck and from the expansive wrap around enclosed porch. The setting is very private, surrounded by 11 acres and very little development. Big Elbow Lake is a gorgeous and scenic 1100 acre lake with good fishing, crystal clear water and many sets of loons to serenade you at night. We are confident that you and your family will enjoy the peace and quiet at Elbow Lake Lodge situated on 250' of private lake shore set in the big pines.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The lodge's historic, stone fireplace and a large great room are perfect for family gatherings. The enclosed wrap-around porch, great room and fireplace area offer expansive views of beautiful Big Elbow Lake. Big Elbow Lake is a good fishing lake - rated as one of the twelve best walleye lakes in Minnesota. The lodge is located at the end of the road and offers wonderful seclusion, privacy and quiet.
