Forest Cabin 'Eleanor'

Cabin Eleanor
1 of 39Cabin Eleanor
Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Shevlin, Minnesota
Private acreage tucked away in a rolling pine forest with a tiny fishing/paddle boat lake. Gorgeous natural boulder landscaping decorates our trail sides. Mossy forest floors, and too many animals lurking to count. The layout of the property has been designed specifically to seclude guests so they can enjoy themselves without worrying about disturbing anyone.

Cabin Rental:
Our secret cabin 'Eleanor' treats people all year long. Built on stilts like a tree house, and in the pines, it has a private campfire area wrapped in a boulder wall. We supply the firewood for free. The balcony keeps you close to nature and the fireplace keeps you warm. There is a Queen bed in the bedroom and a bunk bed facing the many windows into the trees in the open living space. So comfy and cozy, a beautiful cabin to appreciate the simple things. The c...

My wife and I just stayed a few nights at Cabin Eleanor and it was excellent. My wife said it was "a 100% percent better" than she expected. She is not an outdoor person, but Eleanor is not really roughing it. It is an excellent...More

Our family of three spent a week in cabin Eleanor. I have never experienced such a well-stocked rental. Annie has thought of EVERYTHING you could possibly need during your stay--linens, kitchen supplies (including coffee, seasonings, dishes, utensils, cookware, etc.) toiletries, games, books, puzzles, DVDs ....More

About the neighborhood
Just 15 minutes to Itasca State Park & the headwaters of the mighty Mississippi river. And under 20 minutes to Bemidji.

Itasca: Ride a ferry boat to Historic Douglas Lodge where you can also set down and dine. Rent bicycles to take down MILES of trails or boat rental to cruise around the lake the Mississippi originates from. A great swimming beach and of course walking across the very beginning of the Mississippi river. Indulge in ice cream and shop for 'Minnesotan' souvenirs.

Bemidji: See Paul Bunyan & Babe the Blue Ox on the waterfront, put in your boat and dock at a beachside restaurant. Old downtown offers too many establishments to count to eat and drink at. There is the college, the convention center for concerts and shows, little shops, and art on the street...
