Cabin 1 – The Cookhouse Cabin

Cookhouse Cabin #1 at Crow Wing Crest Lodge near Akeley, MN, 25 minutes from Itasca State ParkBefore renovation in the 1960's, this quaint, rustic cabin was the cookhouse for the lodge. Great for small families who have young'uns under 10 (only a few steps from carousel and mini swing set).  Underneath the unique semi-circle two steps up from living area to bedrooms, lies the old stone hearth from Cookhouse days - historic photos in the cabin show a bit what it looked like once upon a time.  480 square feet.
