About the property

3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom Waterfront Cabin On The Water With Sauna.

Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Northwoods on this 5 acre property with all of the comforts and amenities of home. Elbow lake is a deep, hard sandy bottom lake with 13 to 16 ft of water clarity. The lake is nearly seven miles long and is connected by channel to Little Bemidji. The lake is actually the headwaters of the Ottertail River. If you had a mind to, you could kayak or canoe all the way to the Red River! With the lake frozen over, there is direct access to 500 miles of groomed trails for snowmobiling. Several popular 'watering holes' are just a short ride away. Jump on the lake and cross country ski for miles or take a short drive to groomed cross country ski trails at Rainbow Resort or Itasca State Park. Great fishing. After a long day on the trail, relax in the wood fired sauna.

You won't feel like your roughing it, as the cabin has been completely remodeled. Wrap around deck. Stainless steel appliances. Granite counter tops. Tiled bathrooms. Washer and dryer. Big screen TV, Cable, and high speed internet. One king BR, one twin xl over queen bunk BR, two twin xl over twin xl bunks in third BR.

Guest cabin and exclusive access to 120 lake shore acres available for additional fee.

Why Sara chose Minnesota

Jeremy and I grew up in Minnesota, but now live in North Dakota. When we began looking for a lake cabin, we knew we wanted that 'up north' feel. When we stumbled upon this diamond in the rough, we knew it was for us. We have been lovingly making it our own for the last several years.

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Love this place -- either pack in some family and friends or just make it a relaxing, intimate weekend - regardless, this is a great find. Outdoor hot tub and sauna certainly seals the deal. We loved it!

Owner's Response: Ahh! Thanks Melissa. So glad you had fun! When we are not renting the cabin, my husband and myself along with our 5 kids spend as much time at the lake as we can. We love roasting in the sauna and running down to the lake for a dip. When the weather gets cool, we do a steady sauna, hot tub, fire rotation. I am overjoyed to hear that you had some fond family memories at the cabin. I hope we can host your family again. Kind regards, The Jennens

We had a great week away at this cabin. The cabin is just like the pictures. No complaints whatsoever. Nice clear lake and decent fishing considering the windy cold front that moved through limiting time on the lake. We had enough to have a couple meals of fish. It doesn't get better than fresh fish in the pan minutes after cleaning. Cabin is laid out well and has nice appliances and a good supply of cookware and dishes. We visited Lake Itasca State Park one day but mostly stayed at the cabin and on the lake. We look forward to being able to go back.

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to relax! Plenty of space to rest and play games! The lake is nice and quiet and clean. Cabin is updated in all the areas you want modern--bathrooms and kitchen-- but also has cute original touches. We have bonfires, fished off the deck, played cards at the table, ate pizza at the local bar, and visited Itasca State Park! Such a pretty drive too!

Elbow Lake Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was excellent. Nice appliances, mattressess and bedding. We enjoyed the beach and catching pan fish from the dock and from the boat. The lake was very clean. Everyone found something suited to them. I would stay at this cabin again with my family. The owner answered all question promptly and was a pleasure to work with.
