“We have stayed at the Cozy-A-Frame twice now as it has become our family's go-to destination for our summer vacation. Everything was clean and well maintained. The access/use of the full kitchen, charcoal grill, fire pit, kayaks and peddle-boat are great. The dock is nice (albeit a little shaky) and the beach area is great for us to splash and play but it can be difficult to navigate into when it gets wet/slippery as there is a steep, rocky drop going from land into the water. There is a fair amount of both lily pads and seaweed on the bottom of the lake just off the end of the dock but it was not significant enough to hinder us from playing in the water, swimming, and/or floating out to the middle of the extremely quite and peaceful Clear Lake which is posted as "no wake". The end of the dock did also provide a great vantage point for me to sit in a camp chair (also provided) to watch the morning colors (and fog one day) come to life over the east side of the lake. My wife and I take great enjoyment in walking around the neighborhood and the adjacent Esadore Lake, which is a 1.75 mile loop that does have some small hills to make it more interesting. The stairs to the bedroom/loft are very steep and should be a consideration for anyone who might have an issue with that. The window air conditioner kept the entire cabin cool on a very hot July day for us. Overall we really enjoy spending time at the Cozy-A-Frame and definitely consider spending another vacation here in the future. Thank you Kelly for sharing the Cozy-A-Frame with our family and others!”

Explore thousands of acres of the Bayfield County Forest and enjoy endless miles of exceptionally maintained non-motorized recreational trails. The yurt has direct access to CAMBA mountain bike trails and Mt. Ashwabay ski trails. The landscape is also spectacular. Take in the panoramic views of Lake Superior and the Onion River valley. This is a rustic, minimally maintained yurt set in the middle of the county forest, so come prepared to relax, unwind and explore the wonders of the north woods.
“Where do I begin to tell you about the amazing experience I had? Expect to get your work in first of all, because hiking uphill to the Yurt for over half a mile one way is definitely difficult, especially if you make multiple trips to the car. It’s a beautiful hike though. You will share the area with mountain bikers, but I only heard them a couple times during the day. Beyond that, you have the area all to yourself, and maybe some forest critters. There are plenty of signs for the mountain bikers to stay on their paths. Everything you need to start a fire is there, do not bring accelerants. There is an iron grill top that you can swivel into place to conveniently cool what you need, bring an iron pan with! Everything is exactly as you would expect, but that’s the beauty of it. Everything is so simple, and there was nothing difficult about living up there for a few days. The fire stove was easy to manage, the rules are simple, and the isolation from other people is apparent. The view is second to none. You think before renting that the view cannot possibly be that amazing, but you’ll be wrong. Make no mistake, the view does NOT get old. Whether you’re watching people out on Lake Superior, watching Ashland, seeing storms pass by, or just watching the wind dance through the trees, you won’t get bored. Turn on some Colter Wall, crack open a beer, and just relax. I don’t know what kind of bird it was, but it was terrifyingly loud, and landed on the yurt at 4:30am two of the three nights. It didn’t bug me, but was definitely the Bayfield County wake up call we all secretly desire. I spoke with Jason, the Air BnB coordinator, on the phone and through messages. He was quite responsive and went the extra mile to try to let me check in early. Greatly appreciated. Keep in mind, this was all during COVID, and they had cleaning supplies to wipe down and sanitize surfaces. Also, everything I said above is subject to change after tourism in the area kicks back up. I don’t expect much will change, as really the locals and moderate tourists likely know the road itself at all. It is a 2 mile drive on Whiting to get there, so you are definitely secluded. Thanks Bayfield County.”
