Sundew Cabin is a true gem of Ely, a special and unique place to experience the Northwoods with friends and family.

Gorgeous hand-hewn log cabin and log sauna. Unlimited privacy and complete seclusion. The nearest neighbors are over a mile away. Off the grid tranquility.

Conveniently located 20 minutes east of town.

20 years of satisfied guests, many return annually. The previous owners had 50+ five star AirBNB reviews in a row and years and years of glowing guest book entries.

Le logement
Master craftsman and Ely community mainstay Steve Lampman, our friend, built the cabin by hand in 2000 as part of a remote vacation cabin rental business that he operated with his wife Liz. We bought the cabin from them in June of 2021 and are honored to carry on their legacy of Northwoods hospitality.

Situated on quaint Sundew Pond, the cabin is part of a secluded 40 acre plot that is completely surrounded by public land. The pond provides picturesque views, is home to beavers and is frequented by swans, wolves, and other animals. It is a nice place for a short paddle or ski, but is not good for swimming. Pickerel Lake, a 3/4 mile walk or drive down the road, is a fun place to swim, canoe, fish, and ski. From there it is a 1/2 mile portage to the BWCA and the N. Kawishiwi River chain. In the winter a 3/4 mile trail from the cabin leads to Kempton Lake. Guests can use the cabin’s two canoes one on Sundew Pond and one at Pickerel Lake.

Red squirrels, pine martens, rabbits, and a variety of birds share the woods with the cabin. The cabin sits atop a glacial esker deposit in a grove of white pine, red pine, and birch trees overlooking the pond

Over the years the cabin has been a favorite for those who enjoy relaxing in quiet solitude with friends and family, bird watching, fishing, paddling, wildlife, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hot saunas, and the beauty of the changing seasons.

The interior of the cabin is a wonderful combination of Northwoods design and functionality. The 1100 square foot building features the following rooms.
Kitchen: large custom handmade wooden dining table that can seat 10 people.
Main Room: 2 handmade birch wood futon couches that fold out into double beds, another couch, several chairs, handmade end tables. Wood stove. Historic cedar strip canoe in the rafters. Library of Northwoods classics.
Bedroom: The bedroom is upstairs. It includes 2 double beds and 1 twin bed. Pillows and fitted mattress sheets provided. Guests must bring their own top sheet, pillow cases, blankets, sleeping bags, and bathing/personal towels. Kitchen linens are provided.

I live in Colorado, but Ely, Minnesota, is one of my favorite places in the world. In Ely I worked as a year-round instructor at the Voyageur Outward Bound School for 5 years and then on a couple of home building crews, and in various wilderness expedition pursuits. My wife and I have three young children and a dog.
