Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 1 Bath (Sleeps 1-6)

The charm, comfort, and beautiful setting of our vintage Northwoods log cabin will make your cares melt away. Our cabin sits so close to the water, you'll feel like you're floating on stunning Lake Wabedo. Inside the home, you're treated to comfortable furnishings, a well-appointed kitchen, and amazing views of the lake from nearly every room in the house; outside, you're literally steps away from swimming, paddling, and world-class fishing

What will you do with your day? Watch the sky turn early-morning pink over the lake without even leaving your bed. Enjoy your coffee from the lakeside deck in the company of the many birds that visit our feeders. Perhaps you'll head out in the canoe to visit Fish Island, or explore the winding channel that connects Lake Wabedo to Little Boy Lake. Bring or rent a boat and fish the waters of them both, nearly 2600 acres total, and reel in everything from panfish to walleye to trophy-sized muskie (of course, fishing's not bad from our dock either). Enjoy a cool drink and watch the kids swim off the dock while you relax in a chaise lounge. In the evening, take in the sunset from the deck and listen to the ghostly call of the loons.

Should the weather be inclement, no worries--our cabin has a spacious open floor plan, and everything in it has been carefully chosen with comfort and relaxation in mind. There's plenty of comfortable seating for everyone to hang out and watch a movie, play a game, or just enjoy the company of good friends and family.

Feel the need to get out? Visit one of many charming nearby towns, including Longville, just a few miles away and home to world-famous turtle races! Hit the links at nearby Ridgewood Golf Course, or putt-putt at Birdie's in Longville. Try your luck at the Northern Lights Casino in Walker, or take in a movie at the Bear Pause Theater. Hike or bike the many local trails, and visit Deep Portage Conservation Reserve for a variety of outdoor activities and classes.

Whatever you choose, the backdrop for it all is the calling loons, towering pines, and lapping waters of Lake Wabedo. You will leave feeling rested, rejuvenated . . . and eager to come back

About Kirk Buster

I grew up in northern Minnesota, just a couple of hours east of our cabin. I have so many fond memories of fishing with my dad and brother, camping with the family, hiking with Boy Scouts and exploring with friends. When I got married, I talked my (agreeable) wife into a Northwoods, Boundary Waters, house-boating honeymoon. She was instantly hooked on Minnesota and we've vacationed here most summers since.

Kirk Buster purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Kirk Buster chose Longville

We were looking for the classic Minnesota lake cabin and knew we were at home the first time we saw this early-40s log cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of four mid-thirty and mid-sixty year old's spent a long weekend at Wabedo Cabin in late September. The cabin was as charming, comfortable and thoughtfully furnished as we had expected. The countryside, wildlife, autumn colors, and general ambiance were over and above what we had anticipated, even having read the reviews!



We hiked gently sloping trails and canoed when we were't hiking. We saw beaver, eagles, loons and other waterfowl on the lake. At the end of the day we paddled into the sunset while the occasional fish rippled the water, then headed back for cooking and conversation. We were able to put together some very good meals in the well appointed kitchen, and read ourselves to sleep in wonderfully comfortable beds.



Brilliantly colored foliage illuminated by the rising sun and reflected in the mirror-smooth lake is my take away visual for the weekend. Wabedo Cabin is the very essence of it's locale. Thank you, Kirk and Shannon, for finding that essence and making it comfortably available. Ours was a wonderful family weekend.

Beautiful and Relaxing Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Kirk's cabin this past week. We enjoyed the beautiful location on the water, the fireplace with plenty of chopped wood kept us comfortable all week long.

The neighbors are very friendly and helpful, told us of a couple good fishing spots on the lake. We enjoyed the cabin as everything was supplied, kitchen has everything we needed, and they even supplied some great personalized post cards with the picture of the cabin along with being stamped, it can't get any better than this 😎!!

Brought our own boat, Kirk has electric outlet at the dock, and we fished, toured the scenic waters, and saw eagles, loons, deer, turtles, and even saw a couple musky, along with nice bass and northern pike!

We highly recommend Kirk's cabin with comfortable beds, it is very roomy with wonderful views of the lake and sunsets!

Thanks Kirk, we thank you!

Wonderful, relaxing week at charming cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation at the cabin was the perfect, relaxing trip to end our summer. The cabin was so charming, with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Kirk and Shannon were so helpful with any questions we had. We enjoyed using the kayaks, fishing off the dock, cozy fires in the family room, and dinners on the deck enjoying the amazing view. We look forward to returning soon!
