Kind words from past guests.
“Quite possibly the most ideal air bnb experience and we’ve had our far share over the years. The location is unbeatable. Lake views from every room. The space is so cozy and just perfect for a long relaxing break. We only left the cabin for a few hours to sightsee but could have spent our entire time in Isabella at the property. Complete tranquility. Fireplaces for ambience, sauna for relaxation, and nature for entertainment. It can’t be beat!” Christa 11/19/2020
“Unique cabin right on the water. You can’t get any closer to the lake. Enjoy spectacular water view from every room and swim from the deck which is also a dock. Not your typical grandma’s cabin. European (Scandinavian design) with high ceilings, skylights, airy, thoughtful touches in design and decorations. Lots of water toys and Finnish sauna. A true gem. Thank you, James for sharing your beautiful pace.”
“Amazing place to get away and immerse yourself in nature. We loved the music and board game selection! The nightly sauna was also a highlight. Well positioned to access the Superior National Forest and all the north shore has to offer. If you want a space to decompress, you won’t be disappointed here.” - Alex
"An Excellent Cabin for a Northern Minnesota Winter Vacation. My wife and I loved staying here for 4 nights during the dead of winter! We skied each day at the beautiful National Forest Flathorn - Gegoka Ski Trails, barely a ten minute drive away and spent the rest of our time cooking and relaxing in front of a cozy, crackling fire in the wood stove. Definitely make sure to fire up the sauna too!" - Eric
"Amazing cabin on shoreline. Well designed and appointed, a delightful northern Minnesota forest
Lovely. We had several thunderstorms during our visit which added some excitement. We settled in and relaxed. Day trips to Grand Marais for single track biking and Ely for lunch and a walk about town."
"Great cabin in a wonderful location. We had a great time in this cabin. We stayed there for a weekend and enjoyed very much the nature and all the amenities (the sauna is amazing). Definitely recommended!" - Matteo
"The cabin definitely over-delivered; everything was fantastic and better than expected. Easy to find, secluded, tons of amenities. We did a winter trip, and the wood stove and sauna were outstanding. The cabin was crazy stylish and well stocked with great music, Apple TV, and food staples. Ski trails were a five minute drive, and some of the best I’ve been on. It was an authentic cabin experience with all the comforts of home. The hosts were well organized, helpful, and answered immediately when we had a question about sauna set-up. The view out on the lake was beautiful. We’ll definitely book again for a summer trip." - Mary
"James and Gustavo's place is a dream. Far off the beaten track (yet on a mysteriously well-plowed road), it's surrounded by tall pines and gorgeous lake views - the perfect getaway from city life. The house is spacious and luxurious, cozy and quiet, with beautifully curated art and music. And the sauna! Such a treat! On the first night a friendly fox even stopped by, lingering just five feet from us as it poked around in the snow. This place is truly magical, and we can't wait to go back! Thank you so much, James and Gustavo! We had an absolutely wonderful time!" - Morgan
"Magical getaway! Thanks for an incredible weekend. You have a magical place up there!" - Peter
"Had a wonderful time. Great piece of property and very cosy cabin. I was wondering who your internet provider was? The internet is super fast up there. Thanks so much." - William
"Excellent! We loved this special secluded spot. It was a kid free getaway and we enjoyed this place. Having a gorgeous water front experience like this was awesome, even during the winter." - Susies
"This cabin is a winter wonderland. Perfect for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, sauna, and generally enjoying the beauty of the northwoods in winter. Thank you for a wonderful stay at a beautiful place, and for the excellent communication." - Kelli
"This is a really special place. You can tell Gustovo has put a lot of time, energy, and planning in making his cabin the perfect weekend getaway. Exploring the property and its unique spaces was an adventure in itself. Thats not to mention the fact its on a nearly secluded lake, right on the water. Amazing. lll be back :) I proposed to my gf at the palisade cliffs on the way up. I wont forget this place! Just awesome."

"We loved our stay! We were looking for solitude, clear lake water, loon calls and evening bonfires. The cabin is far from resorts, noise and civilization at large. It is right on the water and fishing is possible right off the dock. We were lucky to see Aurora Borealis one night. This cabin is well-designed, has a Finnish sauna, a screened porch and a beautiful fire pit + picnic bench- all right on the water, down from a pine-covered hill where you leave your car and all the worries." - Chika
