Your own private island on one of Minnesota's most beautiful lakes!
We had a very nice time here. We have friends that also have a cabin on an island on Burntside Lake, so we were familiar in general with the lake. It's gorgeous -- if you close your eyes and think about the "land of sky blue waters", this is the place. (In fact, this lake and Pork Chop Island were featured in many of the print ads for Hamm's Beer way back when...)
The cabin was very comfortable and cozy. The wood stove provided plenty of warmth on the chilly September nights, and the beds were comfy. Being in the wilderness and still having access to hot showers, a gas stove/oven, and plenty of places to sit and read made it a luxurious alternative to camping. We also brought our 2 basset hounds, and it was fun to let them roam around without worrying about them getting lost. (And yes, we picked up after them - as should everyone considering visiting this special place with a dog).
Would definitely like to go back - next time we might try a little earlier in the season, but you really can't go wrong with this property or lake.
Oh, one last thing: we rented a pontoon from Lady Bug Lodge and that worked out very nice. We called and they met us at the landing with the boat -- they handled putting it in and taking it out. We just had to hop in and boat over to the island which wasn't too far from the landing.
Beautiful island retreat.
Very clean and well organized.
The perfect Up North MN experience
Our family has stayed at Pork Chop Island several times throughout the years; it is a true Northern MN woods experience on the edge of the Boundary Waters. The cabin has a rustic feel, however, modern conveniences are provided such as a full kitchen, electricity, and hot water for dishes and showers. Clean linens and towels are provided as well. The cabin has a television and radio too, however, we choose to "unplug" and enjoy the secluded surroundings. Staying on a private island is special, rarely is anyone heard from the shoreline. Watching the hummingbirds fight over the feeder from the kitchen window during the day and listening to the loons call to each other at night are our highlights. With little light pollution, you can see the Milkyway and complete constellations at night. The lake is large and clear; a great lake for fishing. There are not many noisy boats buzzing by to disturb the serenity of the island. The lake is a short drive to Ely which has a grocery store for any forgotten supplies. Ely also has a bait shop, several boutiques, and restaurants that make for a great day trip. Pork Chop Island provides the perfect Northern MN experience with memories that will last a lifetime.
Beuatiful Cabin and location on Burntside Lake
Our Family had a terrific time staying on this very private island and beautiful cabin. It was great for the dogs as well as you really don't have to worry about them running off because the Island is a perfect size. Great swimming area on the island and directly across from the island. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay on a n island on the most beautiful lake in all of Minnesota.
Most amazing vacation you could ever go on!
Most amazing vacation you could ever go on! If you were looking for the most gorgeous scenery you could ever find, nothing but nature sound, the cutest island with the coziest Cabin ever then this is your place. Nobody could ask for a better hou if you were looking for the most gorgeous scenery you could ever find, nothing but nature sound, the cutest island with the coziest Cabin ever then this is your place. Nobody could ask for better hosts. We were hesitant to do a review, because we don’t want to share this gym in the wilderness. Our first day there we reserved a week for next year. The cabin is stocked with anything and everything you could ever want for a week, the bed and pillows were amazing, and the island itself fabulous. We caught fish on every fishing trip, and fishing off the dock I cut 19 fish and 20 Casts. We are so blessed that the owners of this island and Cabin are willing to share their paradise with others.
Even more beautiful than pictured/described on vrbo.
Exceeded our expectations. Nicely decorated and furnished.
