This unforgettable secluded cabin is nestled privately in the woods and provides a top level lookout, you can even watch the stars from your bed, watch the storms roll in, eagles and swans fly by, and the wild animals pass through. Design inspired by a fire watchmen's tower. Perfect for a romantic honeymoon or anniversary or utilize the bottom level for additional guests. Three levels, the top and bottom levels for sleeping, separated by the center level for communing/eating and cooking. Fantastic for couples/families traveling together.

BOTTOM LEVEL has a beautiful carved wood wall decor, 1 cozy queen bed, full bath, custom made tile bath/shower with double shower heads, there is a full futon ​and TV with a DVD player.

UPPER LEVEL boasts a deck that wraps around the entire cabin overlooking a vast area to spot wildlife. There are 2 queen beds, a sitting area, TV and another

full bath custom with a double headed shower. Catch the sunset over the pines, or the view with a cup of coffee on the deck.

CENTER LEVEL has a fantastic full kitchen lined with windows and big dining table to bring everyone together.

AC and heat.  There are walking & ATV trails, a little lake to paddle around on in our kayaks or canoe and beautiful grounds (200 acres) to roam around on.


Activities in the WINTER: The cabin is right next to/on a great hill to sled on, you can watch the family sled while you have a hot cider! There is also a great ice fishing creek fed lake one mile down the road- Moose Lake. So bring your icehouses! Play the provided board games, read a book and enjoy the sunsets, cross fingers for a fresh snowfall so you can wake up to a winter wonderland. The perfect cozy getaway to nestle in for a memory making family getaway that is flat out, out of the ordinary. This is also GREAT for snowmobilers to stay right on the trail where you don't have to trailer your sleds, and then gather at night for a big meal. Guests may not use the wood stove downstairs without signing a contract through the Black Lantern. 


SUMMER VISITS: Explore these big woods and many trails and discover its treasures. Hunt mushrooms in the spring, bring a golf cart, bike, atv and cruise around to catch a breeze. Watch stunning sunsets from the deck, picnic or have a family reunion potluck at the pavilion. Enjoy the canoe and kayaks for free to all guests and tool around our little fishing lake. Not a swimming lake- some do but its very weedy, but great to spot turtles and wildlife, another excellent spot to catch the sunset and maybe even some fire flies. Have a camp fire, we have wood stocked on site/ more available at the wood shed for $3.00/bundle.  Charcoal grill provide if you would like to grill out. There are many fishing lakes in the area too. Walk, bike or ATV our trails. ATV's are welcome, enjoy our trails on site or travel 25 minutes to ATV the trails south of Zerkel in White Earth. Bring the kids to the little playground, play horse shoes, or badmitten, or even bring your own favorite yard games:) We are 25 minutes away from Itasca State Park and old downtown Bemidji. Itasca has the headwaters of the great Mississippi River, that you can walk across, take a ferry around the lake, rent bicycles for their MANY bike trails or rent boats, eat at the lodge or swim at their beautiful beach that has showers and bathrooms. In downtown Bemidji there are so many events throughout the summer: fairs, dragon boat festivals, art festivals, holiday celebrations and more. Downtown is great for walking, eating great food, shopping and taking pictures by the famous Paul Bunyan and Babe statues.
