Secluded lakeside cabins nestled in the woods along the shores of the clear waters of Fenske Lake. Twelve miles from downtown Ely, MN up the scenic Echo Trail. Our quaint 1-3 bedroom cabins come furnished with linens, complete kitchen, private dock with sitting bench, aluminum canoe, row boat, fire pit, screen porch, and charcoal grill. Fenske Lake Cabins is a secluded, peaceful resort with true Northwoods charm. Sample some good fishing on Fenske Lake or plan a day-trip into adjoining canoe-only wilderness lakes where wildlife sightings are common. Savor quiet evenings by your campfire listening to the haunting call of the loons. Fenske Lake Cabins is a small group of very private cabins nestled among the tall pines at the edge of the BWCAW. Our five cabins include a fire ring and charcoal grill at each cabin. Each cabin has its own private dock. A sandy beach is located down by the sauna for everyone to enjoy. Newly remodeled cabins include a fireplace, screened-in porch, whirlpool tub, and modern kitchen, including a dishwasher and microwave. This is the perfect hideaway for those seeking seclusion, privacy, and relaxation!!
