The Cabins

Classic Craftsmanship

Traditionally built, & lovingly kept.

Melwel Lodge on Big Basswood Lake

From our classic one-room cabins to our spacious traditionals, they all share a timeless view of the bay, beautiful sunsets, the nostalgic clack of wood-framed screen doors, and that familiar, cozy feeling of warmth, belonging, and well-being.

Lakeside sauna & swim.

Our wood-fired lakeside sauna is built in the classic Finnish style and comfortably sits six. Guests can check in at the lodge to block out personal sauna time and settle in for a steam and a refreshing jump in the lake.
