It’s cabin time™ in Crane Lake
Crane Lake and Boundary Waters area cabins on the Vermilion River serve as a reminder of what an untouched, serene landscape looks like. Crane Lake sits right on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. A gentle hint of modern technology lets us know that we are still preserving our homeland and the wild beauty within it. Crane Lake is at the end of the road, literally. When you reach this vast corner of the world where time has stood still, admire the steep cliffs, the quarts rock (some of the oldest known rock formations in the world), the towering pines and night skies.
Steal glances of a world we no longer have access to at the Namakan Narrows, where pictographs left by the Indians tells the story of how it all began. Experience the Voyageurs National Park as Crane Lake is the southern entryway into the unspoiled area and the western entry way into the BWCAW. Lay on the private secluded beaches, boat around on a quarter million acres of open waterways, fish the wide array of species. Crane Lake is also an entry point to the Canada and only a 3 hour drive from Duluth makes this a great area to getaway for the week and discover a refreshed you.
Get one on one with nature with the observation of some of the northwoods local wildlife such as bear, moose, deer, the elusive wolf deer, fox, wolf, bald eagle, falcons, chickadees, warblers, the famous loon, snapping turtles, and many more.

These Crane Lake area cabins and cottages are perfect for relinquishing all human resemblance and becoming one on one the true miracles of life.
