Many families have enjoyed our Burntside Lake Cabin complex over the decades, with some coming back each year with their children and grandchildren.
This outstanding cabin complex has log cabin, sauna/bath house, screen house, boat house, boat dock and sand beach, private paved road to the cabins.
The cabin complex is very private, it sits on over 3 acres of land and has over 300 feet of lake shore for you to enjoy on your vacation.
Burntside Lake is considered the most beautiful lake in Minnesota. This vary large lake has crystal clear water, many cabin owners drink the water right out of the lake. The lake has many miles of undeveloped lake shore and over 200 islands fill the large lake. The lakes northwest shore is adjacent to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, with direct access into the BWCAW available.
