Everything you need!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with our two teens recently and appreciated the fact that there were bunk beds and we could keep our fishing boat at the dock next to the cabin. Ms Lassila was very helpful and had good communication. We found the cabin to have everything we needed with a good sized fridge, coffee pot, stove, etc. and the kids liked the satellite TV. The cabin isn't huge but it's neat and clean and reasonable. :)

What a peaceful cozy place!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect get away! Peaceful, charcoal grill (all the stuff you need provided!), nice setup inside, really enjoyed it! Only negatives I'd say is that some supplies were missing (i.e. no salt) and the bed wasn't the most comfortable (take it with a grain of salt though because I always say that wherever we go). But nothing to seriously complain about. There is even a selection of a bunch of VHS movies! We watched Forest Gump and the Flintstones! We'd highly recommend coming here! Best thing about it by far was walking onto the dock at sunrise and watching the sun dissipate the mist from off the lake. So beautiful! You should come!

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you found the natural beauty and serenity of our location! It is blessed with the in-town location as well as the great outdoors. We have just had the warmest fall season on record and the sunrises and sunsets are glorious! Hope to see you next year!

Last Minute Anniversary Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed our stay. Sharon the host was very accommodating and cabin was very cozy and clean. We took advantage of the row boat and the dock. Wonderful time watching the Vikings beat the Packers on Sunday night at The Winton Roadhouse. Hiked and just truly reveled in the Up North feel!!

Would love to come and stay again!

  • 5 of 5

I was so busy right after getting back from this beautiful place that I couldn't leave a review right away. My parents and I were seeking for a place to just relax for few days near the BWCA and this cabin was just perfect. The cabin is small and looks a bit old from outside when you first see it. However when you get inside of it, you will see that this cabin is all you need. It is a clean and cozy place for up to 4+ people. There are also some fun stuff that you can do inside of the cabin after the dark.( 90's movies, board games and books) Everything is ready if you are up for having some barbecue party with the great view of the Fall lake during the sunset. There is also a little boat that you can have a short boat ride in the Fall lake. The host, Sharon, was so caring that she not only prepared the cabin for us so much but also helped us a lot when we asked for little stuff. I would love to stay there once more if time allows!

Unplugged quality relaxation on Fall Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time! The cabin was totally spotless when we got there, ready for relaxing. Wonderful view of the lake, far away enough from town to be quiet, but still only minutes from anything you may need. If you are looking for wifi and satellite tv this is not the cabin for you. This cabin is for unwinding, unplugging, and spending quality time with friends and family. Sharon was a perfect hostess and communicated with us throughout the entire process. Hats off to her and the hard work she must put into maintaining such a great stay. We would definitely recommend this property, and would be thrilled to go back again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! We do aim to have options for a relaxing visit! That's why I provide the fire pit and marshmallows, the BBQ ready with charcoal, and Fall Lake right out the door! Please do plan to come back!

Classic small cabin in the midst of the great outdoors

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing lake! Simply gorgeous! Cabin is a classic and as you might expect, small, but clean. The bedroom has a queen and two bunk beds and the "daybed" is a great fourth bed so could easily sleep a couple and three others, but again, tight quarters. The cabin is truly only for sleeping because there is plenty of space to be outside and the outdoors do not disappoint. Plenty of eagles, loons, fish to be seen. The town of Ely is a short drive with plenty of great restaurants and a "small town" feel. Enjoy!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a great time! I love to share The Fall Lake Cabin and all it offers. Right now the fall colors are gorgeous. The crab apple tree has several deer sneaking in, too!
