Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Longville - Wabedo Cabin

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 1 Bath (Sleeps 1-6)

The charm, comfort, and beautiful setting of our vintage Northwoods log cabin will make your cares melt away. Our cabin sits so close to the water, you'll feel like you're floating on stunning Lake Wabedo. Inside the home, you're treated to comfortable furnishings, a well-appointed kitchen, and amazing views of the lake from nearly every room in the house; outside, you're literally steps away from swimming, paddling, and world-class fishing

What will you do with your day? Watch the sky turn early-morning pink over the lake without even leaving your bed. Enjoy your coffee from the lakeside deck in the company of the many birds that visit our feeders. Perhaps you'll head out in the canoe to visit Fish Island, or explore the winding channel that connects Lake Wabedo to Little Boy Lake. Bring or rent a boat and fish the waters of them both, nearly 2600 acres total, and reel in everything from panfish to walleye to trophy-sized muskie (of course, fishing's not bad from our dock either). Enjoy a cool drink and watch the kids swim off the dock while you relax in a chaise lounge. In the evening, take in the sunset from the deck and listen to the ghostly call of the loons.

Should the weather be inclement, no worries--our cabin has a spacious open floor plan, and everything in it has been carefully chosen with comfort and relaxation in mind. There's plenty of comfortable seating for everyone to hang out and watch a movie, play a game, or just enjoy the company of good friends and family.

Feel the need to get out? Visit one of many charming nearby towns, including Longville, just a few miles away and home to world-famous turtle races! Hit the links at nearby Ridgewood Golf Course, or putt-putt at Birdie's in Longville. Try your luck at the Northern Lights Casino in Walker, or take in a movie at the Bear Pause Theater. Hike or bike the many local trails, and visit Deep Portage Conservation Reserve for a variety of outdoor activities and classes.

Whatever you choose, the backdrop for it all is the calling loons, towering pines, and lapping waters of Lake Wabedo. You will leave feeling rested, rejuvenated . . . and eager to come back

About Kirk Buster

I grew up in northern Minnesota, just a couple of hours east of our cabin. I have so many fond memories of fishing with my dad and brother, camping with the family, hiking with Boy Scouts and exploring with friends. When I got married, I talked my (agreeable) wife into a Northwoods, Boundary Waters, house-boating honeymoon. She was instantly hooked on Minnesota and we've vacationed here most summers since.

Kirk Buster purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Kirk Buster chose Longville

We were looking for the classic Minnesota lake cabin and knew we were at home the first time we saw this early-40s log cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of four mid-thirty and mid-sixty year old's spent a long weekend at Wabedo Cabin in late September. The cabin was as charming, comfortable and thoughtfully furnished as we had expected. The countryside, wildlife, autumn colors, and general ambiance were over and above what we had anticipated, even having read the reviews!



We hiked gently sloping trails and canoed when we were't hiking. We saw beaver, eagles, loons and other waterfowl on the lake. At the end of the day we paddled into the sunset while the occasional fish rippled the water, then headed back for cooking and conversation. We were able to put together some very good meals in the well appointed kitchen, and read ourselves to sleep in wonderfully comfortable beds.



Brilliantly colored foliage illuminated by the rising sun and reflected in the mirror-smooth lake is my take away visual for the weekend. Wabedo Cabin is the very essence of it's locale. Thank you, Kirk and Shannon, for finding that essence and making it comfortably available. Ours was a wonderful family weekend.

Great cabin for all types!

  • 5 out of 5
The photos on the Internet do not show how cozy the cabin feels. We felt at home and welcome with our first step into the mud room. My friend and I are in our 60s and were there for retreat from the hectic city life; however, there are so many things available for you: canoe and kayaks, for instance. There was plenty of wood to keep the wood stove going in the living room. The deck feels like it is right on the lake! As we rested in the lounge chairs, we watched downy woodpeckers eat at the bird feeder next to us. We couldn't swim as it was autumn, but the water looked quite inviting. There is also great fishing on this lake. Someone wrote he caught a 50" muskie and 29.5" walleye and threw them back into the water "for next year." The owner is very, very helpful and goes over and above when it comes to providing customer service. Oh, the beds are very comfortable and we both slept like babies. We hope you can reserve time at this cabin - it is very popular, so plan your trip today!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME, ONLY WITH A BETTER VIEW

  • 5 out of 5
Wabedo Cabin is a warm and welcoming cabin with everything needed for a relaxing vacation. This cabin has wonderful views of Wabedo lake and is centrally located near the entrance to Little Boy Lake too. After a long day of casting Muskie lures it was great to come back to a cabin filled with comfortable furniture and throw your feet up in front of a fire. I would strongly recommend this cabin and hope to stay there in the future.

Wabedo Cabin : Recreation at it's finest!

Wabedo Cabin : Recreation at it's finest!
  • 5 out of 5
Perfection is hard to achieve, but this relaxing and very well maintained cabin has done it. It was a great way to spend our anniversary week and really literally get away from it all! The drive through the spectacular fall foliage in itself was amazing. Plenty of scenic and historic stops along the way with views that are truly remarkable. Longville is just under 5 miles away and has anything you would need, with a grocery store and a large fuel stop that's open 24 hours a day. The vintage log cabin is just as nice as the pictures portray it to be and has just about everything you would need, including Wi Fi ( for those of us who couldn't live without it, although we're "getting away from it all"!). The lake is just a few feet from the cabin down a few steps to a nice cozy dock. The water is crystal clear... many times you can see your bait or lure in the water... and see the fish swimming around checking it out. Just from the dock we caught many panfish, crappies, smallmouth bass : the biggest largemouth bass (approx. 7lbs.) and northern pike (36") I've ever caught in 4 decades of fishing came from here... of course we released them so that someone else can enjoy them someday. All in all, this was one of the top rated stays that I can remember. Beautiful sunsets with many evenings listening to the loons whistling, and calm mornings watching a bald eagle flying from tree to tree. Fishing, hiking, walking, relaxing, boating, swimming - whatever you want to do ( or not do!) is all right here. And be ready to take pictures.

Idealic,well appointed,cozy memory maker! Love.

  • 5 out of 5
This vintage log cabin was everything we hoped for and more.!! This well appointed, beautifully decorated cozy cabin offered comfort and adventure. Our days were spent fishing and paddling through the waterways of Wabedo and Little Boy Lakes. We would return to the comfort of our cabin where we enjoyed gazing at the beautiful lake and regale each other with fish tales around a cozy, warm fire. Everything we needed to enjoy our week at the lake was provided. The beds were extraordinarily comfortable, The kitchen very well appointed. Games to play and books to read. Every detail covered. Even pre stamped postcards to send your friends and family! We made many wonderful memories at this lovely vintage cabin. It has a special place in our hearts. We highly recommend!!

The Wabedo Cabin

  • 5 out of 5
After reading everyone's wonderful reviews, I just had to write one myself. All the wonderful reviews brings me to tears because I am so grateful that the cabin is being cherished as much as I did growing up with it. My grandpa sold this cabin to the current owners and owned for 30+ years before he did. I grew up going to this cabin, and it has a special spot in my heart. I even had the dream of owning it one day when I was a little kid. I am beyond happy about how much peace and joy this cabin is now bringing to other people, so I wanted to say thank you to the owners for putting your time and love into it and thank you to the people who rent and continue to cherish it as I did.

Life is good at Wabedo Cabin!

  • 5 out of 5
Words cannot convey…but we’ll try anyway. Our stay at Wabedo Cabin was simply wonderful. Kurt and Shannon have thought of everything to make a stay at Wabedo a very relaxing, enjoyable vacation. Our first day was rainy but we were very comfortable in the cozy cabin. The rest of the week was beautiful and we enjoyed relaxing on the deck, fishing, canoeing and swimming. Keith even tried the kayak. There’s other things to do like a trip into Longville to the shops, including Frosty’s for some ice cream, and a day trip to Itasca State Park to visit the headwaters of the Mississippi River. We’ve gone through VRBO for several of our vacation rentals, but Kurt and Shannon have set up this cozy cabin so thoughtfully, it is our favorite. We’ll definitely be making a return visit!
