Choose between two classic Minnesota lakeshore properties, hidden in the heart of Chippewa National Forest, for your private escape to wilderness comfort and beauty.
Burns Lake Cabin – luxurious, executive home in Chippewa National Forest. Relax and de-stress in absolute privacy and north woods, lakeside beauty. Burns is one of the most beautiful lakes in the area (about 350 acres), with great fishing. This hand scribed log home, built in 2003, provides luxury and ultimate relaxation in the wilderness. Listen to the loons, paddle in the kayaks, fish, ski, snowshoe, hike or mountain bike on logging roads and private paths. Burns Lake Cabin is surrounded by the Chippewa National Forest – your gateway to the wilderness.
Burrows Lake Cabin is a classic, completely renovated Minnesota Lake cabin with native beamed ceilings and a massive stone fire place. The house stands 25 feet from the sandy shores of pristine 300 acre Burrows Lake. Relish your privacy – your have 91 beautiful acres with a staggering 1630 feet of lakeshore to yourself! Lake breezes will entice you into your boat, to swim, picnic in the gazebo or read a book by the lake. Simpler than the modern elegance of Burns Cabin, Burrows is the classic Minnesota woods retreat, refurnished for modern comfort. (Be part of history: this home was built by the doctor who delivered Bob Dylan & was a dear friend of the legendary Moonlight Graham of Field of Dreams fame!)
Year round, these beautiful cabins at the center of Minnesota sports and recreation country are available for your vacation of a lifetime. These are two of the most private homes available for rent in this gorgeous part of the country, with over 1000 lakes in Itasca County! There is something for everyone! Sports enthusiasts will love the boating, fishing, hunting, golf, kayaking, sailing, swimming, running, hiking, snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross country skiing, and sled dog mushing just outside your door. The more restrained will have a wonderful time strolling through the woods, canoeing, gently cycling and walking along miles of national forest paths and roads. Then come home for a picnic by the water. On winter evenings think about the great day outdoors and curl up in front of your own huge stone fireplace with hot gingerbread and coffee, a mystery novel or the love of your life!
Special reduced two week and monthly rates are negotiable.
Both cabins are located 225 miles north of Minneapolis/St. Paul, about 120 miles northwest of Duluth, 24 (Burrows) and 40 (Burns) miles north of Grand Rapids, Minnesota. Fly into Chisholm/Hibbing airport for either cabin.

Chippewa National Forest
The Chippewa National Forest in northern Minnesota covers a huge proportion of Itasca County. We live among hundreds of thousands of acres of wilderness and relatively little private land. The Forest itself consists of 1.6 million acres, and hosts the largest population of nesting bald eagles in the lower 48 states. During your stay, you may see osprey, eagles, pileated woodpeckers, hawks, red foxes and of course lovely white tail deer.
The Burrows Lake area, on the east side of Chippewa, is especially beautiful – this is extraordinarily rare property. Year round, the lake and the forest await you on this unique site. Burrows Lake Cabin is available for weekly rental.
Field Of Dreams & Bob Dylan
There are three famous things about Hibbing / Chisholm Minnesota, where the doctor who built Burrows Lake Cabin spent his life. Unless you’re a devotee of taconite mining, we have links to the important two out of three: Moonlight Graham in the movie Field of Dreams, and Bob Dylan, who was born and grew up there!
