Description

Location: Gunflint Trail

Birch Lake Retreat is a picturesque log cabin-style home located on the shore of Birch Lake, roughly 45 minutes north of Grand Marais.  Birch Lake sits at the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota's pristine north woods.  

The original home dates back to 1946 and has been modernized and updated to feature one bedroom and two bathrooms in the main house with a second bedroom located in the separate bunk house.  This peaceful retreat offers modern conveniences in a location far away from hustle and bustle of city life.  Sit on the deck and hear the birds chirping and watch deer grazing in the yard.  If you're very lucky, you may catch a glimpse of a moose or a soaring bald eagle.  Another unique feature is the staircase leading to the loft space, which was constructed using logs salvaged from the 1999 Blow Down- a massive wind storm that toppled thousands of old growth trees in the area.

Passing through the town of Grand Marais, MN you will find the entrance to the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway near the public library, marked by a statue of a voyageur and his canoe and a black bear.  Take this remote wilderness road up to Birch Lake, roughly 35 miles away.  Along the way you are certain to spot many wildlife creatures.  These can include deer, bear, fox, wolf, and even moose!  In the springtime, many of this area's visitors have reported seeing mother moose with their calves, a sight that is becoming more and more rare all over the world.  Once at Birch Lake Retreat you are in your own peaceful spot on Earth, with plenty of wilderness activities to keep you busy for your stay.  Enjoy hiking, canoeing, and exploring this beautiful area.  Take a day trip into the BWCA or hop over to the Trail Center Lodge for a bite to eat.  Head down the trail into the quiet, peaceful town of Grand Marais for a day of shopping and dining at the many restaurants that make this quaint town so unique.  

This is a preview of this wonderful new rental home located up the Gunflint Trail.  We will have more information, photos, and a virtual tour available in early summer.  This is a seasonal cabin that is not accessible during the winter, but we wanted to give you the opportunity to be the first to book Birch Lake Retreat for your next lake vacation.
