|The Hunch Lake Cabin is located
along the Echo Trail approximately 15 miles north of Ely, MN. A private-gated driveway
leads you about ½ mile into the cabin area. There is only one other cabin (Echo Log Cabin) on the lake. It is 1/4 mile away.
|The cabin sits on a granite outcrop some 80 feet above the lake. The view is "mountain- like,"with steep slopes covered with large red and white pine trees. Hunch Lake is a small and private lake - very quiet and peaceful! A walking (somewhat steep) trail leads you to the waters edge, where there is a canoe and dock. There is also a canoe available at the cabin for day trips to other area lakes.|
|The cabin is bright and open with skylights and many windows, allowing you to enjoy the beautiful views. Gas lights, gas appliances, a wood stove, and a gravity warm water system (in summer) make for a cozy stay. An open stairway leads to a large loft bedroom that has a double bed and a futon.|
|A balcony gives a treetop view of
the lake. There is one bedroom downstairs with a double bed and a sofa sleeper in the
living room. A comfortable outhouse is nearby. A new sauna with a wrap-around deck is next
to the cabin.
The Hunch Lake Cabin sauna is an additional source of relaxation on your Echo Ridge Cabin retreat!
|There are many trails in the area
for hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, and dog-sledding rides are available. Wildlife - moose,
wolves, deer, loons, etc. - are frequently seen.
