I love this cabin so much that I am leaving a review (for the first time in my life) two years after we stayed there, because I can't stop thinking about it when I am seeking out a place to run away to with my husband. We have since moved to Seattle, and I cannot find anything comparable to this place. The beauty and peace of no running water or electricity with the impeccable view of gorgeous Superior is very hard to beat. To anyone that is hesitant to vacation somewhere this "rustic" (I think that term is ridiculous- this is what cabins are supposed to be!), I urge you to put aside your concerns and give it a shot. In an ever-changing techno-centric world, these places are only getting harder to find. If you've never considered staying somewhere so "off the beaten path", I urge you to have your first experience here at Sandy Beach. It has all the peacefulness of portaging through the Quetico, with the amenities of not having to bury your poo or set up your home each night. You'll at the very least leave with the memory of what it was like to be truly disconnected from industrial society, and in harmony with your surroundings. We came away with many more memories than just that- splitting wood in only our boots and underwear while the cool wind woke up our senses. Trumping to the outhouse in pitch black darkness, taking pause to listen to every noise- some big, and some frighteningly small. Best of all; running out of the cabin in the middle of the night to observe the most beautiful lightning storm we've ever experienced dance across the water- scaring us shitless, as the cabin shook beneath our feet with every triumphant crack. I could go on for hours. If I could marry this cabin, I would. I have grown up camping, portaging, and summering in a cabin just like it- and it only furthered my passion for building a cabin like this of our very own, to turn into our permanent home... the city should be the place we go to visit. The woods should be our home. Sandy Beach will make you feel the same.

We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin was very cozy and clean. The only negative was the walk up and down the hill from where we parked our Jeep. A little steep for two old farts. But we fine thank you very much;) Loved the ambiance with the propane lights and wood burning stove. We will definitely be back. Oh and the pink one seater was a hoot!

Great off-the-grid rustic cabin experience, just what we wanted to drop out of the urban buzz. Very grateful for this rare environment to truly get away and be refreshed in nature with no electrical options. Yay! Beautiful spot, where we honeymooned 6 1/2 years ago, and return to every year. Bring wet wipes for cleanliness. Optional: dunk in Lake Superior for brief crazy thrill.

Sandy Beach was everything I wanted. It provided the rustic atmosphere that camping brings with the comfort of a permanent shelter. The site was secluded from others, offered ample room, and having a private beach solidified the spot as one of my favorites from my many travels to the area. I indeed hope to make it back soon.
