If you are looking for an escape for your family to a secluded, cozy cabin on a beautiful northern lake, Thieves Den is waiting for you. Recently this cabin has been totally renovated from top to bottom, with new exteriors, interiors, windows, electrical, furnishings and appliances but with all the charm of the north woods.
The cabin is part of a family compound of 5 cabins on 40 acres set in the heart of the Chippewa National Forest. Our family has made memories here for 75 years We have renovated each cabin to be charming and comfortable for the family members who use them. To help with the expenses we have decided to rent out two of the cabins when the family is not using them. We will treat you as family and hope that you do the same for us.
Steps from your front door is 1000 feet of private sandy beach on a great swimming-fishing-boating lake. The sand bottom drops off very gradually, making it ideal for kids to swim safely. Round Lake is known for its great fishing, with a variety of species including walleyes, northerns, perch and panfish. The extreme drought this portion of northern Minnesota is experiencing may affect your ability to launch a large boat at the public launch.
Enjoy the spectacular sunsets, star-filled skies and sometimes northern lights from our private dock. Canoe, kayak or paddleboard on our boats or bring your own boat and moor it in front of our beach. Lounge, grill or picnic on your private patio. Make s’mores or hot dogs on a fire in the lakeside fire pit.
The small but efficient two-bedroom layout is perfect for a family of 5 or two couples. There is a new queen size bed in one bedroom and a new single over double bunk bed in the second bedroom. The 6-person antique table is a great place for meals and game or card playing. The cabin is set up to provide for all your needs: high speed 250 mg direct connect internet, wifi, smart television, ¾ bathroom, well supplied kitchen, linens and towels. Upon reservation confirmation, we’ll send you a detailed list of all we provide.
The seclusion of our cabins offers an ideal habitat for a variety of birds and animals. You are likely to see loons, pelicans, eagles, various ducks and geese, hummingbirds at the feeder by your cabin, deer and occasionally the fox after whom the cabin is named.
Our location in the National Forest gives you great hiking and biking trails within minutes of the cabin. We will provide a notebook for your use with suggested activities in the area.
We rent only mid-May to mid-October because our water system is not usable when the ground freezes. Judy lives at the cabins during this season and will be happy to assist you with anything you need. We rent by the week Saturday to Saturday because our cleaning crew can only work on the weekend and we want to ensure that the cabins are cleaned thoroughly before your arrival.
Smoking, hunting and shooting are prohibited.
Please don’t hesitate to contact Judy with any questions you may have. Check out our listing for Kingfisher cabin for a slightly different cabin layout.
