Big Pines Getaway - Log Cabin In Northern Minnesota's Superior National Forest

Located in: Isabella
The Big Pines Getaway is located on a small quiet lake in the wild heart of the Superior National Forest, only about 8 miles from the southern boundary of the B.W.C.A. A perfect place to commune with nature, reconnect with family and restore your spirit. The living area has a panoramic view of Lake Gegoka and the lake shore is just a short walk down the hill. If you are planning a wild party weekend, please seek different accommodations. Big red and white pines tower overhead, providing nesting habitat for eagles, osprey, owls and kestrels. This hand scribed full log house has a genuine 'Northwoods' feel. A fully vaulted main room overlooks Lake Gegoka, bringing the outdoors right in through a full wall of glass. The loft offers a special place for kids or adults to have their own space up in the treetops. Spectacular sunsets can be enjoyed from the living room, the deck or better yet a canoe. The Log Home is simply and comfortably furnished, with a modern kitchen and 2 bathrooms. A gas fireplace completes the rustic, relaxed atmosphere. We even throw in 2 CANOES and FIREWOOD. Silent recreation for all seasons at our gem in the forest.


If you are looking for a quiet, secluded wilderness escape, you have found it. Even with a very adequate public boat launch less than a minute away, there is no such thing as 'rush hour' on pristine Lake Gegoka. Speedboats, tubing and jet skis are definitely out of character here. This sparkling clean little 150 acre lake offers fishing, canoeing, swimming and just plain gazing out at. Our complimentary canoe provides a perfect way to explore the lake. The dock down at the shoreline is available to cast your line from or could accommodate your own small fishing boat launched from the public landing just around the corner. Lake Gegoka is a shallow sandy bottomed lake and warms up early in the summer. Just a few minutes away is a little used public swimming area on Flathorn Lake (connects to Gegoka). There is a very scenic hiking trail around it and a picnic area with water pump, grills, tables and a brand new vault toilet.

Lake Superior's North Shore is only about 30 minutes away and provides many opportunities for day trips, including Split Rock Lighthouse tours, the Superior Hiking Trail and some of Minnesota's most popular State Parks. It's a great place to cool down on a warm day inland and grab a bite to eat or a special souvenir. Ely is a 45 minute drive and has a variety of good restaurants and unique gift shops. This lively little town is the jumping off point for Boundary Waters Canoe Area trips and has some great attractions for rainy or sunny days. Both the International Wolf Center and the North American Bear Center are great places to learn about 2 of the areas wild residents. The Soudan Mine tour is a fascinating look back in time to 'hard rock' underground mining on the Range in the early 1900's.
