VINTAGE LAKESIDE LOG CABIN, PANORAMIC VIEWS, FISHING, SWIMMING

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.

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!

Another Fine Stay!

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second trip to Wabedo Cabin and if anything it was even better than our first trip last year. We knew what to expect at the cabin, where to put our boat in, etc. The views from the cabin are magnificent and there's nothing like waking up in the morning to a view of the lake. I miss it already. The addition of two kayaks to all the other amenities was very welcome. My daughter (8) and son (11) easily learned how to paddle and even took a trip to the island across the lake. Kirk and Shannon own a real gem and we were pleased to have the privilege to stay there again. By the way if you ask nicely they will arrange to have perfect weather for your stay as they did for ours!

A perfect week at Wabedo Cabin

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at Wabedo cabin was everything described and more. The cabin was wonderfully stocked, from a full kitchen to high quality bedding and towels. The guest guide was very throughout and gave excellent information on the cabin as well as fun opportunities in the area. The cabin is "one of a Kind". Well maintained, exceptionally clean and very tastefully decorated in the 1940 log cabin theme with modern amenities. The lake is pristine and quiet, some days we were the only boat on the lake. The call of the loons added to the relaxing week. There are opportunities for day trips in the area, delicious ice cream at Frosty's, as well excellent fishing. This is truly a very special vacation spot we highly recommend and plan to visit again next year. Thank you to the owners for sharing this beautiful cabin!

Lakeside Charmer

  • 5 out of 5
We had the most relaxing vacation at Wabedo Cabin. A week was truly not enough. From kayaking and canoeing on the lake to curling up to watch a movie rented from the One Stop, we couldn't have asked for more. Every room is so well-appointed with cozy linens and charming cabin decor. Not to mention the WELL stocked kitchen, which would accommodate even the most persnickety foodie. Fell asleep to the calls of the loons each night. Also really enjoyed downtown Longville, especially chicken wings at Shorty's and huge ice cream cones at Frosty's. Literally cannot wait to return!!

The perfect cabin for getting away from it all!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family (2 parents, 3 kids ages 10, 11, and 14) spent a week at Wabedo Cabin and were left with a wonderful experience, and some terrific memories.

The cabin itself has a classic old-style charm, but the interior has been nicely decked out with attractive and comfortable modern amenities. Our active days were always followed by a very good night's sleep enjoying the cabin's comfortable beds and the local peace and quiet. We also appreciated the full kitchen and full size fridge, allowing us to cook our own meals which we enjoyed either at the indoor dining room, or out on the scenic deck overlooking the lake.

The lake itself was perfect. Just off the dock it's shallow enough to swim safely, but also deep enough to do a bit of fishing. The water in late July was very comfortable - not too cold, or too warm. The kids swam every day with air temps ranging from the low 70's to nearly 90 degrees.

We also enjoyed the canoe and kayaks. The kayaks were largely used by the kids to paddle around near the cabin, but we did some extended exploring with the canoe. The lake proved larger than it appeared on the map. There were fishermen and water skiers out everyday, but it never felt at all crowded.

By the time we left we were already talking about coming back next summer. This was exactly the kind of "get away from it all" cabin experience we were hoping for!

Wabedo Lakeside Log cabin

  • 5 out of 5
It was everything and more than depicted in the property photo's. My wife and I had a great time. Rustic and Quaint, The views from the cabin really gave you that Up North feeling of the Natural Beauty of Northern Mn. The Loon's calling, the Eagles swooping down to grab a perch. My wife found an Antique Vanity in Longville that we packed in the return trip home. I brought my boat and we fished a lot with some success. Released a 27" Walleye and caught some nice 16/17 inchers for the table. A nice meal and a few to bring home. Saw some giant Muskies. Caught a lot of small northern and bass. Mountain Biked, exploring some trails and dirt roads leading to properties off the beaten path. I'm considering purchasing a Cabin myself and we looked at a few also. I would like to come back if we don't buy a place ourselves. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful vacation home,--- Rob & Kim.
