If camping does not appeal to you
but you would still like to enjoy a peaceful northwoods vacation, we also have two housekeeping cabins on Hungry Jack Lake. Our cabins are right on the shore of the lake, and are just one mile by water from the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
Each cabin has a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, and a gas wood stove for heat and abiance, as well as all linens and towels, a toaster and coffeemaker, and the use of one canoe or boat.
Hungry Jack Lake is very pretty and generally very quiet; motors are allowed but very little used. Fishing for smallmouth bass is good most of the summer and walleyes can be found in midsummer. Nearby lakes have great trout fishing early and late in the season.
Most of our cabin guests take advantage of the canoe-only wilderness just outside their door. If you would rather have views of the water than be on it, you’ll want to explore the spectacular hiking trails along the Canadian border, with trailheads on the other side if the lake. On the east end of Hungry Jack Lake, Honeymoon Bluff offers spectacular sunset views. Our lake is home to moose, beavers, otters, and loons. The Gunflint Trail, Grand Marais, and other parts of Cook County also have many places to explore.
There are several fine restaurants in Grand Marais and on the Gunflint Trail.
Our cabins sleep up to six and are open May through September. Please call 800 / 648-2922 (8:00 am to 7:00 pm, Central Time) for more information, availability, and a brochure, or e-mail us and mention that you would like cabin info.
Out of consideration for our other guests, we do not allow pets, personal watercraft, or large motor boats.
