About Phillomena Davis
Mike and Phillomena Davis are currently managing the Davis homestead for the family. We live in the Twin Cities but have many friends and relatives throughout the area.
Why Phillomena Davis chose Ranier
This property has been in the family for almost 100 years. The location, with its proximity to both Rainy River and Rainy Lake and Canada right across the bay, has been a historic gathering spot for native Americans, fur traders and adventurers for hundreds of years. From this point you can travel by boat more than 30 miles into the Canadian wilderness in three different directions or head up to Kettle Falls on the U.S. side 40 miles more. There is really no other lake in Minnesota that has so many unique features. You can spend a lifetime exploring it, and many have done just that.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is not your typical Minnesota "piney woods cabin." It is truly a rustic lake home and part of the fascinating culture of the village of Ranier. Yes, the lake is there with all of its attractions. But this location has so much more that keeps us coming back year after year.

As always...Worth the trip!!
Always enjoy the ease of working with the owners and the wonderful location of the property. Plenty to do and the scenery is breathtaking right on the lake!
Wonderful cottage with a beautiful view. Very comfortable. Near Voyageurs National Park.
Great home base for daily treks into Voyageurs National Park. Beautiful location. Comfortable bed and a great shower. Kitchen was well stocked and supplied. I appreciated the spices and oils for cooking! We watched the ripples on the lake for hours. Very relaxing. Fall colors were very nice for mid October. Highly recommend!
My husband and I stayed at the Davis lake cabin, and had a wonderful time. The cabin was located right on the lake, and we so enjoyed the beautiful view from the living room window. We are already talking about going back.
Super cute property with gorgeous view, all the amenities (and some fun surprises) needed for our girls weekend. Owners attentive to any request and did warn us of the only bathroom in one of the bedrooms. We didn't find it to be an issue.
Thanks for the nice review, Connie! We're glad you enjoyed your get-together at the cottage, even though the weather wasn't the greatest. And we're glad you weren't terribly inconvenienced by the single bathroom. We are working on a plan to remedy that situation once and for all!
So relaxing! This place had everything a person could need. Loved all of the Antique's brought back so many memories, Will be back!!! And recommend to everyone!!!!
Beautiful Voyageur's National Park is within a short boat or car ride. Several resorts dot the shoreline, including the must-see Sha-Sha on Black Bay. The area is, of course, a well-known fisherman's paradise, with numerous guiding opportunities to those without their own boats or gear. Grouse and
duck hunting is popular in September and October, deer hunting in November and snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and ice fishing in winter.
