I built the magnificent 3,000 plus sq. ft. Hand-Scribed Western Red Cedar Log Cabin/Lodge over 3 years starting in 1988. Our one of a kind log cabin has a glorious southern exposure too. This Cabin is equipped with all the lavish amenities you could ever need. We are on an island a short 1 mile hop from the mainland which makes us allot more secluded than most. We are not on the main drag in town or right next door to a lodge/bar or marina so your stay will be more peaceful and pleasant. This Cabin or as some would say Lodge, will luxuriously accommodate up to 8 guests. The lodge has two loft bedrooms with 3 queen beds, and a master bedroom with one king. Amenities include full stocked kitchen with a dish washer, Jen-aire gas range, 30 cubic ft fridge with ice maker, dining room, great room, 2 rock fireplaces, 2 full bathrooms with jacuzzi tub & walk in shower, indoor sauna, washer/dryer, 4 TV's w/ satellite, over 2000 square feet of wrap around decks, large bar-b-que. Bring your own boats and fish/sightsee on one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. The cabin also comes with a small boat & motor, canoe, large dock with electrical power service, swim ladder, water toys, and water slide for the kids. There is also a primitive wood burning sauna at the main dock and a fire pit on the point. A caretaker (on call 24hrs) will check in daily to address any concerns or maybe just give a little local advice if you would like. One day fishing trip or sightseeing excursion with a local guide included with the weekly pkg. Optional chef and fishing guide service for part or all of your stay available upon request if booked far enough in advance.
My history, in this part of the world my family was the first to offer guided fishing/lodging packages before the end of the 19th century. My granddad E.D. Calvert (inducted into the Hunting & Fishing Hall of Fame in the 1940s) started with a canoe around 1898. He would guide you while paddling, then set up a tent camp and cook your meals for less than .25/day. This is now known as the "American Plan". In his spare time Gramps would paddle from Rainy River to Kenora On. and meet the freight train. He would get cream cans of bass fry (not indigenous), portaging he would release them in the many lakes finally getting to Rainy Lake. He did this for almost 20 years. By the late 1920s he had one of the largest fishing resort businesses in North America with 7 camps, a houseboat "The Lady of the Lake" which had 19 staterooms. I should also mention there were numerous outposts. We had our own non stop express train called "The Calverts Express" which came directly from Chicago's Union Station to International Falls everyday with just our fishing/hunting guests. One of the camp's three buses would then get you the 60 miles to the landing where you would get on gramps's 90' steam ship with 18 state rooms called the Clipper. The Clipper would ferry you to the main camp in Sabaskong Bay. This happened everyday for over 30 years. We could accommodate well over 350 people a day at the many Calvert's Camps. The resort business was changing and the last of the world famous Calvert's Camps was sold in 1960s when dad moved the family to International Falls and Rainy Lake. I learned the fishing and hospitality business from two generations of Calverts before me. Now I have two cabins that I rent on Rainy Lake and a guiding business to keep the family legacy continuing for almost a 120 years now. My son now fourteen is following the families footsteps. That will make four generations of Calvert's guiding fisherman and hunters into this special wilderness world.
Danny Calvert purchased this cabin in 1990
Our most famous attraction is Rainy Lake and Voyagers National Park. Rainy Lake is the 17th largest fresh water lake in North America, with over 3000 islands and more shoreline than Lake Superior. Come and explore or fish this boaters paradise. You can travel for days and never see all of this vast lake basin. The lake has 5 fingers that will go up to 50 miles in one direction from the cabin.
Fisherman will have a field day on our world class lake. The lake holds trophy size Muskie, Northern Pike, Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, and Crappie. I have personally caught over the last 50 years Muskie in the 55" class, Northern Pike at 49.5", Walleye 34", Smallmouth at 24.5", and lots of crappie over 16". You guys that no fishing think that this is just another fish story, but its not. I am a third generation fishing guide who's family started guiding this part of the world around 1900. So folks the fish are here you just have to find them. For many clients 100 fish days are not uncommon. Get your Canadian Border Crossing Permit and you can boat into Canadian waters and not have to go through Canadian Customs every-time you want to go into Canada.
Voyagers National Park is one of the only water based Parks in North America.The park is named for French Canadian voyageurs who paddled birchbark canoes for fur trading companies in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The voyageurs were famous for stamina—paddling up to 16 hours a day—and roisterous songs. Their canoe route between Canada's northwest and Montreal is cited as part of the U.S.-Canada border in the treaty that ended the American Revolution. In a boat in the labyrinth of waterways and islands, you can unwittingly cross this border. Be sure to take along a high-quality map that includes navigational markers to tell you where you are. Visit the park headquarters to see there museum and maybe book a tour boat ride to the famous Kettle Falls Hotel.
