Historic Lakefront Cedar Log Cabin on Wooded 4 Acre Parcel

21 Reviews
Bedrooms 5
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


Photos and Description of this Duluth holiday cabin

5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 15)

* Please note that if the minimum nightly rental period ( 5 nights depending on the season) is not available on the calendar I am happy to accept shorter stays.

This has to be one of the most unique log properties in Minnesota. It was built on the site of a logging camp back in the 1920's, is almost 3000 square feet and great for entertaining large groups.

The sloping hardwood floors add character to the hand hewn beam, vaulted rooms. An expansive four season porch seats up to 40 people for dining or serene relaxation overlooking the lake. The picture windows on the 4 season porch open to create an airy, fragrant screen porch during warmer months. The large, level grassed yard is ideal for outdoor activities.

Master Bedroom - 2 Full XL w/bath, 1st Floor Bedroom North - 1 Queen, 1st Floor Bedroom South - 1 Full, Loft North - 2 Queen, Loft South - 1 Full and 1 Twin XL.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We celebrated a wonderful family time together as we extended our 50th wedding anniversary!! We (grandma and grandpa) had so much fun with Am and Jon, Ann and Curt and sons (12-9) and Carl and Kelly and girls (6-4). We cooked together, read books, played cards and had movie nights with popcorn. Uncle Curt brought his boat and we saw our grand kids try out tubing, wakeboarding, and becoming very good at it. We also did fishing (not too good), kayak and paddleboat. It was all alot of fun. But the most fun for me (grandma) was to have out family share good times all together.

Absolutely Wonderful Property on the Lake!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I stayed in this cabin over Labor Day Weekend. There were between the three families up to 17 of us ( Had a couple in tents in the yard) We all fit and it never felt crowded! The cabin was just spectacular, it was so welcoming and fit our needs perfectly. We had big family breakfasts in the 3 season porch every morning and then Dinners every night. Everything we could have needed was provided in the cabin as far as linens and kitchen items. The lake access was a ton of fun and everyone had a blast fishing. Every evening was spent laughing around the beautiful fire pit. I cannot say enough how great this place was. It was close enough to everything in the area to go out during the days and explore new things, but away from the hustle and bustle and so relaxing. My Niece got engaged at the end of the dock, and it was so special for she and her fiance' . There was even wine glasses to do a champagne toast with! The kids really enjoyed that there was tv and internet as well so the adults could visit in peace, although a lot of time was spent playing tag and hide an go seek, and exploring in the woods and making stick forts as well. The beds were very comfortable as was all the furniture. The rustic charm of the place was just awesome.

I would recommend this place to anyone and hope that in the future to definitely stay again. Doug was wonderful and accommodating and made everything just super simple and easy.

Comfortable, relaxing and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

We had family ages 2-70 and everyone enjoyed their stay. The kids were never bored, the adults could relax and enjoy. We had bonfires, swam, took advantage of the boats and plenty of room for everyone to do what they enjoyed. Beds were comfortable, bedrooms were quiet. Loved the big shower/sauna combo. Other bathroom was spacious and beautiful. Plenty of towels and linens for all. Beautiful scenery with the thick woods and lake right outside the house. Great family and larger group get away. Well maintained and owner was wonderful to work with. Highly recommended.

We were very disappointed that the listing showed a pinball machine that DIDNOT work. The boat ramp where you could launch a boat was filled in with silt. The refrigerator did not keep up well and froze some of the produce. The location was good. Use of the wood pile worked well but the book in the lodge is misleading about the use of it; after I talked to the owner we realized it was for our use.

We are 30 minutes Northeast of Downtown Duluth. There are three restaurant/bars within apx. 12 miles. Briar Lake is almost 1 mile long and varies in width as you can see on our website picture on the local info tab (See Link Below). Briar is a DNR designated trout lake and stocked with Rainbows, Splake, and Donaldson trout. The water is clear and warm, (when not covered by snow and ice). Depth in the center is about 30 feet. Briar is a spring fed lake with a creek outflow on the far end. Great for boating, water skiing, kayaks, jet skis and long enough to take off and land float planes. We also have a shallow cove that has launched boats up to 20 feet in length.

Other Activities: Shopping, kayaking, Boating, Snowboarding, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa, Racquetball, Horseshoes
