Perched high and overlooking 20 acres of beaver ponds, islands, and forest, you’ll discover the best of both worlds at Ironton Island.
Enjoy the calls of songbirds and waterfowl, spring peepers sounding from the wetland, and the night sky with its glorious starscape overhead. This seasonal getaway (May–October) at Ironton Island is peaceful and quiet, yet close to town—just one mile (a five-minute bike ride) from the Miner’s Mountain Rally Center in the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area or Main Street Crosby.
With room to spread out, Ironton Island features three nicely separated, micro-glamping,A-frame cabins with windows and vents, and keypad entry locks. Each one has two camp mattresses, a table, and two stools. All you need to bring are sleeping bags/linens and a cooler of drinks and food. Outdoors, you’ll enjoy your own deck with two Adirondack chairs to relax while you grill (grill utensils provided), toast s’mores at the fire pit, or relax in the hammock. There is even a picnic table to spread out your post-recreation or lazy-day meal—whether you prefer charcuterie fare or grilling tasty burgers.
Being nestled in the privacy of nature and fully off-grid (no WiFi), each cabin has a solar panel pack to charge a device or run a small fan. There is also a centrally located, shared bath house with a water tank reservoir to accommodate flushing, washing, and showering.
The creative team behind Loon Lookout and Lilypad are also the creators of the glamping cabins of Ironton Island. The cabins of Ironton Island will be completed mid-summer, so check them out on Instagram (@ironton_island) to view their progress, so you can be prepared to schedule your very own getaway.
