Cabin rental-suggestions

5 posts in this topic

I know this is the camping forums but I am looking at trying to rent a cabin next summer in MN for just a weekend or a 4 day long weekend. I am just looking for suggestions of a nice place I could look into. I have looked through alot of them but most require a full weeks rental. Any suggestions would be great, thank you very much.

Depends on what you are looking for & how many people.

Some state parks have "camper cabins". Very nice, but somewhat small. They typically have heat and electric, but no water or bathrooms. However they are a great alternative to a tent. It's like camping, but a lot more comfortable. I love them.

The parks that have them do have bath & shower buildings, just not in the cabins.

Check out the state park info for more info.

Lots of places will rent cabins for less than a week. It might be tough to do during the prime fishing time in mid to late June becasue they can book full weeks then. One I know of is the Sunset Resort located on the Ash River Trail. It's on the edge of the Voyagur National Park. They have a HSOforum.

Most places will rent out for a weekend or long weekend. I know that some camp grounds lik koa will have cabin rentals for very good prices, but you may be looking for more of a resort type thine.

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
