About Portage House

Set deep in the woods, down miles of dirt roads, on the shores of Loon Lake, in the heart of the Gunflint Trail, in Grand Marais, Minnesota near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, you will find Portage House: A Canoeists' Paradise. In this cozy cabin, you will feel truly unplugged and in tune with nature. Nothing will greet you but the songs of the birds and the rustling of the trees as wildlife passes through. Slow down and enjoy a different pace of life.

Portage House is a two-room cabin with shoreline access to Loon Lake. Inside, the main room has a living area with a futon and sleeper sofa, as well as a full kitchen with an oven, fridge, and sink (with indoor plumbing!). The second room is a full bathroom with a walk-in shower. This is a minimalist cabin with comforts that make it appealing for those who want to get away, but also enjoy some of the amenities of home. No TV, no internet, and no cell service, but there is a phone in case of emergencies. Sit out on the lake-facing deck and enjoy the surrounding nature. There are no visible neighbors from the cabin, just trees, the lake, and the wildlife.

Housekeeping Note: There is no housekeeping or linens provided for this cabin. You must bring your own sheets and blankets (or sleeping bags) and towels and clean your way out for the next guest. We provide some basic soaps, toilet paper, paper towels, and cleaning supplies for your stay. The cabin is accessible by car, but a 4-wheel drive vehicle is recommended for venturing out along the Gunflint Trail's lesser-traveled areas.

Allergy Warning: Please note that while this cabin is NOT pet-friendly, the owner does have a dog who stays at the property on occasion, so a dander/fur-free home is not guaranteed.
