BWCA Rustic Cabins

My wife and I are looking for a rustic Canoe In cabin in the BWCA. We want a cabin with no neigbhors that we would have to canoe to get to. No plumbing is fine as long as there is an outhouse! Let us know if you know of anything like this! Thanks!

There are no cabins left INSIDE the BWCA, as it is a designated wilderness.

All cabins were removed after the 1978/79 legislation.

There are cabins outside the BWCA that would fit your desires. However lakes that adjoin the BWCA will have neighbors. You'll probably want to be on a lake away from the BWCA.

Here are a couple of places a quick search on VRBO revealed.

The second website posted by Yucatan is one of five cabins owned by a family near the BWCA, of varying sizes, each one has a canoe, http://www.logcabinhideaways.com/

Here is a paddle in cabin (just across from Entry Point 31 (Kawishiwi River) )- beautiful location and helpful and friendly owners.
