Trade city living for lazy lakeside days when you stay at 'Wilderness Acres,' a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom vacation rental cabin that sleeps 6 in McGrath. Sitting on the edge of beautiful Bear Lake, this cozy cabin is surrounded by woodland views to make you feel like the only cabin around. If you appreciate a firm tug on your fishing line, a walk in the woods to pick wild berries, and the stillness of the lake while you float in the canoe - this cozy cabin hideaway is the perfect place for you!
Bedroom 1: Full Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed, 2 Twin Beds | Living Room: Queen-sized Futon
Start your morning with a cup of coffee in the sunroom as the sky comes to life with light. When you're wide awake and ready, head to the boathouse, where 3 adult kayaks, 1 kids kayak, and a canoe are ready to be taken out for a day on the lake. Those who prefer dry land can spend the day wandering the property, picking berries and fruit from the orchard.
Retreat inside for rest and relaxation in the afternoons. Bring a book to the garden house, take a cat nap in the sunroom, or tune into the flat-screen TV in the living room - each equipped with a wood-burning fireplace to thaw your frozen toes after time spent in the water.
The kitchen is fully equipped with updated appliances and amenities to assist in homemade pies and hearty meals alike. Gather the family around the 5-person dining table, or bring your appetite out to the 3-season screened picnic house, where you can enjoy the outdoors without those pesky Minnesota mosquitoes.
End the night on a sweet note with s'mores around the outdoor fire pit. When you're ready to retire to bed, head back inside to sleep tight on the full bed in the first bedroom, while others retreat upstairs to choose a spot on the queen bed and 2 twin beds in the second bedroom.
'Wilderness Acres' is ideally located on the edge of Bear Lake, providing direct access right outside the front door! If you want to experience bigger waters, drive 20 minutes over to Mille Lacs Lake for kayaking and hiking in the summers, plus ice fishing and cross-country skiing in the winters.
If you're feeling lucky, drive 45 minutes down to Grand Casino Mille Lacs! Strike rich at the slot machines, practice your poker face at the gaming tables, or reserve a ticket to the on-site events and shows! For a day on the greens, head to Izatys Golf and Yacht Club House about 20 miles away.
Just across the road from the casino, you'll find the Mille Lacs Indian Museum and Trading Post. This historic spot is rich with local history and showcases the traditions of the original Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe. Impress your friends with a traditional American Indian gift from Mille Lacs artisans!
