If camping does not appeal to you but you would still like to enjoy a peaceful northwoods vacation, we also have two housekeeping cabins on Hungry Jack Lake. Our cabins are right on the shore of the lake, and are just one mile by water from the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
Each cabin has a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, and a gas wood stove for heat and ambiance, as well as all linens and towels, a toaster and coffeemaker, and the use of one canoe or boat.
Both cabins are recently remodeled, fresh and clean but retain the original look and feel of their 1960’s rustic origins. The appliances are from the last few years but the sinks are from 1917. The mattresses are great and even the pull out couches are comfy.
Hungry Jack Lake is very pretty and generally very quiet; motors are allowed but very little used. Fishing for smallmouth bass is good most of the summer and walleyes can be found in spring through midsummer. Nearby lakes have great trout fishing early and late in the season.
Most of our cabin guests take advantage of the canoe-only wilderness just outside their door. If you would rather have views of the water than be on it, you’ll want to explore the spectacular hiking trails along the Canadian border, with trailheads on the other side if the lake. On the east end of Hungry Jack Lake, Honeymoon Bluff offers spectacular sunset views. Our lake is home to moose, beavers, otters, and loons. The Gunflint Trail, Grand Marais, and other parts of Cook County also have many places to explore.
There are several fine restaurants in Grand Marais and on the Gunflint Trail.
Our cabins sleep up to six (beds for 4-5) and are open May through September. Please call 218-388-2275 (8:00 am to 6:00 pm, Central Time) for more information, availability, and a brochure, or e-mail us and mention that you would like cabin info.
Out of consideration for our other guests, we do not allow pets, jet skis, or large motor boats.
Both cabins have the following:
A full kitchen with refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, cutting boards, dish towels and soap, cooking pots and pans, dinnerware, glassware, cooking utensils and silverware for 6. Garbage bags are provided and trash and recycling service is provided.
All bedding and linens, bath towels, bath mat and wash cloths, personal soap and hair products, toilet paper and paper towels.
Outside – both cabins have a private deck, Adirondack chairs, a Weber kettle grill (bring your own charcoal) a private dock and a small fire pan for camp fires with local firewood. You cannot bring firewood from outside the county. There is a larger camp fire area with a picnic table separate from the cabins.
