About the property

Vintage cabin private lakeshore getaway with a sandy beach.

If your goal is to get away from it all then this is the place for you. Listen to the loons call from this picturesque cabin with a sunset view. Twelve wooded acres shelter this property which also includes a dock that is made for family swimming and fishing on 450ft of shoreline with a sandy beach area that is perfect for sandcastles and lounging.

You'll have all the peace and quiet you want, yet you are just a short drive from restaurants, golf courses and shopping in the towns of Emily and Crosslake.

Loon Lodge

Built in the 1940s, Loon Lodge is a charming two-story walk out cottage nestled among whispering pines and towering birch trees. Set in the privacy of 12 wooded acres, yet only 15 minutes from the dining and shopping area of Crosslake and the Whitefish Chain of lakes, Loon Lodge is the perfect place to enjoy sunsets and listen to the loons call.

The Lodge - Upper Level

The centerpiece of the knotty pine living room is a gorgeous stone fireplace, yet the living room also includes a flat screen TV, DVD/VCR, and a compact high-end audio system, allowing for CDs or access for iPhones, iPads, iPods or other MP3 players.

The fully updated kitchen includes a microwave, dishwasher, and all the utensils, dishes, and pots and pans you need to make this your home away from home.

The sunny dining room provides a delightful area for meals and games. And, when the weather allows, meals can also be enjoyed at the patio set on the lakeside deck.

Two bedrooms and a three-quarter bathroom with a stacked washer/dryer create convenient one-floor living. One of the bedrooms has a queen size bed and the other bedroom has a full size bunk bed.

The Lodge - Lower Level

The lower level, which is accessible only from an outside entry, has a living area with a full size futon sleeper and an all-in-one kitchenette unit. The bedroom is furnished with a full size bed. A three-quarter bath is also on the lower level. This arrangement provides privacy for friends and family.

Everyone looks for that little slice of heaven, a private paradise away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A place you feel safe to move at a pace that suits your mood on that day. A place where you control the stress and laugh amongst friends and family. Loon Lodge on Mitchell Lake is that place. From the moment you enter the private, tree lined driveway, you just know. It will take you back in time. The cozy cabin overlooking Mitchell Lake is peaceful and quiet. No traffic noise, just the loons calling out to greet you. The lake has very little boat traffic, perfect for taking out the canoe and watching the Bald Eagles, loons and other wildlife. Then there is Karl, owner/proprietor. Karl lives in the home next to the cabin. A gentle, wise man that respects your privacy. If you are fortunate enough to visit this place, you should reward yourself with at least one conversation with Karl. I guarantee you will walk away a friend.

Loon Lodge is calling.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Loon Lodge. The cabin was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The beach and dock were great. The grounds of the cabin were very beautiful. It was quiet and peaceful . The perfect retreat.

Cozy Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend with our 1 year old at this quaint cabin. The cabin itself is full of character with a beautiful stone fireplace that got a lot of use at night. We found everything we needed for meals, entertainment, communication, etc. The sandy beach gets plenty of sunlight and provides beautiful views of the quiet lake. Fishing off the dock was very good with a number of bass and panfish, and a couple nice-sized pike. We will definitely include this cabin on our list for future weekend getaways.

Stunning sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

This charming cabin tucked in the woods was the perfect place for our family of 7 to vacation. This was our second time here and we absolutely love it. Fishing was awesome...lots of crappies, walleye and northern. Great swimming area and soft sandy beach with amazing views of the sunset. Very clean and cozy. You won't want your stay to end!
