My wife and I just stayed a few nights at Cabin Eleanor and it was excellent. My wife said it was "a 100% percent better" than she expected. She is not an outdoor person, but Eleanor is not really roughing it. It is an excellent cabin in a great location with everything modern. Nice, quiet and secluded though. We can't wait to come back again. And close to Itasca State Park. We highly recommend it!
Our family of three spent a week in cabin Eleanor. I have never experienced such a well-stocked rental. Annie has thought of EVERYTHING you could possibly need during your stay--linens, kitchen supplies (including coffee, seasonings, dishes, utensils, cookware, etc.) toiletries, games, books, puzzles, DVDs . . . I could go on and on. There is no TV service, but both TVs in the cabin have DVD players. We spent many hours in the cabin watching movies, playing board games, doing jigsaw puzzles, and just relaxing. It was actually really nice to be forced to "unplug" for a week, as there is no wireless and cell phone service can be iffy. We spent one afternoon kayaking on the lake, which was really fun. We also rented a golf cart to cruise around the large property, which our daughter especially loved.
Annie and crew do an amazing job making you feel like a valued guest. We felt very well cared-for, but we also had our privacy. The Black Lantern is close to Bemidji and Itasca State Park, so we were able to visit both places on our trip. But we spent most of our time at the cabin and resort. The property is gorgeous! You can see many thoughtful touches throughout the property. We are already looking forward to going back!
Hats off to Annie and the Black Lantern crew !!!! All your hard work has paid off. The cottage and the grounds are amazing. Your skills with woodworking, stonework, interior decorating, folk art is evident everywhere. The property is beautiful, and so is the lake. The opportunity to canoe, kayak, paddle boat is great. You could not ask for a better place to relax and enjoy nature. Two thumbs up !!!!
Cabin Eleanor is INCREDIBLE!! It's the best of everything. Outdoors, you find wilderness, nature and God's beauty. Indoors, you are in luxury. Every detail has been thought through by the owner. We instantly felt as if we were home yet felt like we were pampered at the same time! The bed was extremely comfortable. The fire pit was amazing! Beautiful in and out. We were truly blessed to be able to stay there and cannot wait to go back next year!

Very nice place to stay and very peaceful and quite. Can't say one bad thing about our experience. My wife and two sons enjoyed the cabin and fires each night. Thanks for everything Annie!
