Newly Remodeled Family-friendly Cabin. Beautiful And Fun In All Seasons!

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom Waterfront Cabin On The Water With Sauna.

Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Northwoods on this 5 acre property with all of the comforts and amenities of home. Elbow lake is a deep, hard sandy bottom lake with 13 to 16 ft of water clarity. The lake is nearly seven miles long and is connected by channel to Little Bemidji. The lake is actually the headwaters of the Ottertail River. If you had a mind to, you could kayak or canoe all the way to the Red River! With the lake frozen over, there is direct access to 500 miles of groomed trails for snowmobiling. Several popular 'watering holes' are just a short ride away. Jump on the lake and cross country ski for miles or take a short drive to groomed cross country ski trails at Rainbow Resort or Itasca State Park. Great fishing. After a long day on the trail, relax in the wood fired sauna.

You won't feel like your roughing it, as the cabin has been completely remodeled. Wrap around deck. Stainless steel appliances. Granite counter tops. Tiled bathrooms. Washer and dryer. Big screen TV, Cable, and high speed internet. One king BR, one twin xl over queen bunk BR, two twin xl over twin xl bunks in third BR.

Guest cabin and exclusive access to 120 lake shore acres available for additional fee. Check-in/out day is Friday. If you would like to stay a partial week, please plan for either the day you leave or the day you arrive to be a Friday.

Why Sara chose Waubun

Jeremy and I grew up in Minnesota, but now live in North Dakota. When we began looking for a lake cabin, we knew we wanted that 'up north' feel. When we stumbled upon this diamond in the rough, we knew it was for us. We have been lovingly making it our own for the last several years.

Nice home with a beautiful view

  • 3 of 5

Great family area and well-appointed kitchen in this lake home. The view is beautiful and generally a peaceful lake, with a lot of privacy. This is not a good swimming lake (bottom is completely covered with plant growth)--better suited for fishing--and beach is almost nonexistent. Fire pit was a broken metal disc. All in all, a nice peaceful place to stay (with a beautiful view), but pictures and description were a little misleading.

Beautiful lake and cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is very beautifully updated and decorated. We loved spending our annual family week here. Our family loves swimming and tubing, and the nice clear water made it so enjoyable. Beautiful views from the cabin and wrap around deck. I would highly recommend this rental.

Wonderful Week at the Lake!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this wonderful property and loved it! Views from the cabin and wrap around deck are amazing. Woods on 3 sides keep the property private yet easily assessable. Plenty of room in the cabin for our family of 8. Lake is clear and caught walleye, northerns, bass and perch. Skied on what seemed like a lake of glass one day and we were the only boat on the lake! My husband got a little choked up when it was time to leave! Many thanks to Sara and her family for sharing their lovely home with us! We highly recommend this property! Vicki P.
