Description

Location: Gunflint Trail

Direct Access to BWCA!

At the edge of Minnesota`s great wilderness, with direct access to the BWCA you will find Wearing Water.  Located on the shores of Saganaga Lake at the end of the Gunflint Trail on Sag Lake Trail you will find this quaint log cabin and a wilderness experience unlike any other.  This property is just two miles from the Canadian border.

Wearing Water is a two bedroom plus loft, one bathroom log cabin that blends into the surrounding woods. However, it boasts all the amenities you would expect to find in a house in town. A luxurious base camp to return to after a day in the wilderness. Enjoy the gorgeous stone wood burning fireplace in the living room, Ducane gas grill on the lake facing deck, and plenty of wildlife that you can usually spot wandering through the property day and night. Drinking water is provided.

Lake Saganaga, which is at the end of the Gunflint Trail 60 miles from Grand Marais, has a 25 horsepower limit. BWCA day permits for canoeing are stocked at the cabin, at nearby canoe outfitters, and at the public landing.  You are right in the middle of the great Northern Minnesota Wilderness, but still have plenty of local amenities around in case you need them.  The Voyageur Canoe Outfitters is a great stop to make for boat rentals, maps, advice, and supplies and is located about a quarter mile from Wearing Water.  Dining options include the Gunflint Lodge and Trail Center back down the Gunflint Trail or the Trail's End Cafe if you go back onto the Gunflint Trail from Sag Lake Trail (turning right).  The Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center makes for a great day trip to learn some of the history of the Gunflint Trail and to take a pleasant nature walk if you are looking for something to do during a day away from the boating.

Whether you're looking for a base camp for a BWCA adventure or just looking for a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of real life and want to get away to somewhere very secluded, Wearing Water can offer it.  

Seasonal cabin, closed in the winter months.

Very enjoyable experience. Loved the deck, really appreciated the quiet. Delighted to discover that there were wild blueberries growing right outside the cabin door. The area has a special place in my heart. It was nice to be in the middle of nowhere and get away from it all. Really good value for the money. We were disappointed to discover that wash machine was out of order. It would have been nice to have been warned about it and that the nearest laundry mat is located at Gunflint Pines. The only thing that would have been nice to have in the kitchen was a rubber scraper. There was a mouse in the cabin. There were quite a few cobwebs.

Home is beautiful and so is the property. Lovely time sitting on the deck.. even with the large amount of boat traffic early morning and evening (that can't be helped). It was very hot and could use a fan for every room. Railing to floating dock needs repair, vertical poles are loose. We are older people and it was a bit dangerous getting to the floating dock.. which was a bit tippy itself. Tub needs safety strips. it was very slippery when taking a shower. Was disappointed clothes wash machine was out of order. Had planned to wash a few things and not pack so heavily for the week. Large front windows could use bird safety decals. Two birds hit the windows and died on the deck while we were sitting there. Stove is a mess. These are mostly minor things. We loved our stay (except for the black flies). We don't expect perfection that far out in the country. A bit rustic is good. Loved the friendly little animals that came to visit every day (for a peanut). Loved to walk the road and other nearby hiking spots. Loved bird watching and boating in the evening. Had a huge storm which scared the bejeezes out of us and downed a small tree in the driveway.. and it was way too hot and humid... and still loved it. May return some day but it would be in month of September .. not July

This is the third year we've stayed at this cabin so obviously we like it very much. Very quiet and relaxing. Comfy furniture and everything you could want in a vacation home--including no internet! (I consider that a plus!)

Third time here, I obviously love it. It is always quiet neighbor wise. Granted it only matters to me at night or if it rains, but coming from someone who still doesn't have a flat screen TV, I like that amenity with the few movie channels. The location is perfect for me, I can do all I want to do, bike from the home, kayak/fish from the home, boat/fish from the home, thanks in part to Voyageurs Outfitters near by. That is a big perk! I like the fact that there are no properties across the bay from it, just nature.
