Minne-Mecan as we have dubbed it, is a small offshoot of our main business - Mecan River Outfitters and Lodge located near Princeton, Wisconsin.

A beautiful log cabin nestled in the Superior National Forest really gets you away from it all.
This rustic retreat sits adjacent to the Superior Hiking Trail and the North Shore Ski Trail System. Just a short 2 hour drive north of Duluth-Superior. It is truly an area that is worth the drive. Treat her kindly so we can all return time and time again to enjoy.


Cabin Info

The cabin sleeps up to 8 people but carries a 4 person minimum charge. Minne-Mecan has a woodstove, gas lights, a 2-burner counter top stove, tea kettle, wash basin, firewood and water in 5 gallon container and of course the outdoor privy.
