About Lisa Schwanke

This has been our family's summer retreat for the past 25 years. My daughter and her family own the cabin right next door. Talk to her son, Michael who manages the property about guided fishing trips, unique day trips and where the best spots are to recreate on the lake. He knows the hidden gems! If you'd like to setup a trip during your stay visit or contact him at

Why Lisa Schwanke chose Minnesota

This place is unique in that it's one of few that has road access - making your arrival and departure smoother and easier. Cabin is rambler for easy access.. Lake side windows for gorgeous views. 200 ft of lakeshore frontage allows for spectacular views and privacy. Nearby Scotts Seaplane base is a convenient launching pad for fly-in Canadian fishing trips. A 10 min boat ride to Voyageurs National Park and the BWCA - miles and miles of pristine wilderness and unexplored interior lakes.

What makes this cabin unique

Provides a great home-base for daily adventures on and off the lake, as well as a relaxing, comfortable space to start and end your day.

Nice cabin with all the amenities you would want in a Northwoods getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and spacious. It had 2 docks, a fish cleaning station, a firepit with a picnic table next to the firepit. Nice location. Far enough from civilization for a getaway but with enough necessities nearby.

Gorgeous Home with fantastic lake view

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Bayside Fish Camp. This immaculate home was very spacious with numerous windows that allowed a great view of the lake. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to prepare our meals. The open layout perfectly maximized living space for the six in our party, with huge LR/Kitchen lakeside separated by a wall. The 3 BR/2BA in the back allowed privacy and quieter sleeping quarters. The home is situated in a quiet and peaceful bay, with easy access out to the main lake. Michael (property manager) was very helpful and pleasant. We enjoyed it so much that we've rebooked for next year!

Best Place on Crane Lake

  • 5 of 5

Such an awesome spot! We loved the large lawn and the cabin had everything you'll ever need plus some! FULLY furnished kitchen, cozy blankets and the lazy-boys are so comfy! We'd did a day of guided fishing with Michael, caught a ton of fish and covered a lot of Voyageurs National Park. We'll be coming back again towards the end of the summer. 5/5 stars!

Michael and his family were absolutely fantastic hosts. The home is clean, spacious, and full of all necessary amenities. For our family of five we had more than enough room. The views of the lake were awesome and the docks gave our kids plenty of opportunity to throw a line in. We really felt at home - and enjoyed the peace, quiet and privacy we were looking for.

Michael took us out as a fishing guide and this turned out to be the best part of our trip. The kids caught plenty of fish, the views were outstanding, and Michael made us a shore lunch on an island while we watched the sunset. Absolutely fantastic.

The home is within 5-10 minutes of a number of outstanding hikes and sites to see. We went up for three nights and all of us wished we had a few more nights to stay. We have had a few other experiences via VRBO where the pictures and descriptions didn't quite fit or meet our expectations when we arrived. This surpassed all expectations and we will definitely be back for another visit...But for more than three nights!

Thank you Michael!!!
