Our Great Escape Cabin in Maple Lake, MN has been family owned for 50 years. It has an Upper and lower large entertaining deck next to the water. We get you on the water too! Use the 2 kayaks or canoe (fishing boat and fishing/recreational pontoon available for rent) and get out there and fish for crappie, sunfish, bass, northern pike and walleye - all make for a memorable fish fry.
We have fish house for ice fishing available for rent in winter.
Only 40 miles from Minneapolis and 32 miles from St. Cloud. Just like that you’re waking up to beautiful sunrises, launching your boat to enjoy sunny days on the lake, firing up the gas grills and relaxing around the fire pit. Keep your boat at the dock!

"Great Escape Cabin place REALLY is GREAT! Family fun galore! We went not knowing what to expect because the place has just been renovated and we were pleasantly surprised. Fresh and clean cabin, fishing and swimming was fun for the kids. Our family recommends!" Margaret from BC, Canada
Keith and his Father build the cabin in 1974 after his tour in the Marine Corps.
The original Wilson’s Hide Away started in 1960. It started as small two bedroom cabin with only five cabins on Lake Ramsey.
Over the years we developed the place as it shines today.
Dora moved to Minnesota from Canada in 2014 to marry Keith! She takes care of our gardens, flowers and decorating as well as learning history of this beautiful place!
We hope you enjoy your stay!
