Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Shevlin - Forest Cabin 'Eleanor'

Designed for a Couple But Can Hold 2 Extra On the Bunks. Secluded Getaway.

We are surrounded by wildlife out here, and lots of towering pines. The cabin is tucked into the forest with rolling hills, solid forest and tons of trails. The little lake is secluded and not developed and the kayaks/canoes/paddle boats are free to you to use. Booking is easy, we just take phone calls/emails so we can talk and make sure everything is a good fit, and guests don't have to pay a dime until they actually arrive. Call our mobile anytime 612-812-7309. The cabin was designed for a couple but we added a bunk bed because so many of our guests want to bring more family. There is a private campfire area landscaped in a little cove with big boulders right out the cabin's front door. The cabin has a queen bed, a propane fireplace in the center of the cabin, full kitchen that is equipped with all eating/cooking utensils, coffee maker, toaster, blender, crock, & baking sheets, an open living space, the bathroom is custom built with a double headed shower with a built in bench, custom sink and shelves, all the linens are provided and meticulously cleaned for the kitchen, bed, & bath. We outfit the cabin with children's games, coloring, etc. , adult's games like cribbage, family conversation starters, puzzles, books & magazines & don't forget the DVD collection if you want to hole up and watch movies! Outside, the deck wraps around so you can watch the wildlife, which has included bear, turkeys, deer, tons of squirrels, a porcupine that tried to eat our front door, birds and many others. We supply chairs for sitting and a charcoal BBQ grill. A starry sky here is amazing and can be so quiet at night it is gorgeous. A Winter stay is my favorite, as we leave snowshoes for the guests and it is the most secluded time of the year. Our guests have even brought and decorated Christmas trees! Since we are right on the snowmobile trail guests can hop right on their snowmobiles for a day on the trails too. ATVs are welcome here too. 100's of feet of forest separate you from the nearest anything on the property, the cabin is private. There are 200 acres all together and also 7 RV sites and a very rustic mini cabin without plumbing in a different location on the property and a stunning outdoor venue. We operate as The Black Lantern Resort, but we only have the one beautiful cabin. Some weekends we do family reunions/wedding etc, so the weekends we don't have a function going on we take reservations for the cabin through this site and it is neat because the cabin guests then typically have the whole place to themselves and we NEVER book a function when there is a guest in the cabin:) Privacy is our forte, there may at best be an RVer or two on a different part of the property! All the acreage is very fun to explore, we do have a golf cart for rent too. The lake is not for swimming. We have a little dock house that has life jackets and some fishing gear in it that our guests are welcome to use. A playground is there for the children too:) Call anytime! 612-812-7309

About Annie Eastey

My name is Annie Eastey and we run this place with every family member and friend we can! It takes an army

:) We all just love this place, it is a meticulously maintained property and lots of fun. We are easy breezy people and are here to help you do nothing or everything and enjoy yourself!

Annie Eastey purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Annie Eastey chose Minnesota

My family vacationed to a LITTLE cabin in the woods right by here where we indulged by cooking on a wood stove, pumping our own water and using kerosene lamps instead of electricity, and card games instead of TV. I have not been able to shake this part of the forest and it is where my heart is. I came back to Northern MN the first chance I realized I couldn't live without it.

Quaint Cabin in the Woods!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed here for 4 years now and we love it. We always come in the winter to enjoy the state snowmobile trail that runs through the property. The cabin is amazing. It's always incredibly clean and offers great views from every window. We love this cozy cabin and will keep coming back for years to come!

Secluded Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at "Cabin Eleanor" many times, and plan an staying many more! It's a perfect get away from the busy city - no TV, Internet or Cell signal. Just a beautiful cabin in the woods with trees and nature to keep you company. The cabin is up on stilts, so it feels like a treehouse. Nothing is better than sipping coffee on the patio. Except maybe having a roaring bon fire sitting on the ergonomic rocks.

Annie makes sure that you have everything you need for the stay - just bring food!

We are located directly between Bemidji and Itasca state Park. Choosing which to visit is hard, considering days can fly by spending time at each location. That is, if you can convince yourself to leave the cabin 'Eleanor' and property surrounding her. There are 100's of acres to roam on and explore, there are trails for walking and ATVing through the forest, berry picking at our place or the berry farm a couple miles down the road. The cabin is situated on stilts in the canopy of the pines away from everything else with a personal boulder landscaped fire pit and wrap around deck.

Ter-Lee Gardens: a couple miles away has asparagus, strawberry, raspberry, gourd and pumpkin picking.

Itasca State Park: 20 miles away has a sandy beach, home to the origin of the mighty Mississippi, a lodge to dine at, souvenir store, ice cream shoppe, ferry boat rides, bicycle & boat rentals, & ENDLESS trails! The place is gorgeous.

Bemidji, is home to the Sanford Event Center that hosts wonderful events and conventions regularly, the town regularly puts on many festivals: Dragon Boat Festivals, St. Paddys Parade, Water Carnival, Art Fairs, the town is highly involved in the community and provides us with lots to do. The historic side of town is home to the famous Paul Bunyan & Babe the Blue OX statues, antique shopping and great eating all with just a stroll around the old downtown, there is even a small children's museum and REALLY good live theater. The newer part of Bemidji has the newer stores and eating like TJ MAXX/Target & MANY restaurants.

We are in the center of three Indian reservations that provide 3 Spectacular Casinos within 35-45 minutes, the beautiful Ojibwa language is prevalent in the area and lives even on local signage. We are surrounded by fishing lakes, if you want to hop from lake to lake too. Again, that is if you can convince yourself to leave the beautiful forest on the property where cabin Eleanor is, and the Black Lantern Resort. Guests also enjoy ATVing in the area and find their ways down to local restaurants South of us on day trips!
