FACOWIE (fa-cow-wee)

Origin: American Indian
Lost ones, lost people.

Facowie Lodge is a two-unit retreat nestled in the peaceful remote wilderness of the Minnesota northwoods. Located just outside of Buyck, approximately 5 miles from the town of Crane Lake, it is the ideal place to relax, recharge, and get “lost”. The home overlooks tranquil Kabustasa Lake, directly across from Echo Lake. With only two connected units in a quiet and private setting, it is a peaceful alternative to the noise and activity of a large, crowded resort.

With its beautiful and serene surroundings, abundance of outdoor and sports activities, and modern updated accomodations, Facowie Lodge is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, family vacations, a romantic couples getaway, a weekend trip for the guys or girls, business retreats – essentially anyone looking for a Northwoods vacation at a reasonable price!

Come get LOST at Facowie Lodge.
You just may FIND the peace you’ve been missing!

There’s something for everyone in Northern Minnesota!


What our guests have to say...

What an awesome place!

Beautifully decorated with all the comforts of home. Breathtaking view from the deck. Warm and cozy fire pit to relax with an adult beverage. Wonderful hospitality. Thank you Facowie!!

Home in the wilderness.

Facowie Lodge is a wilderness retreat with all the amenities of home. It positions you in the center of prime Minnesota sporting country with some of the best fishing, hunting, and MN adventure seeking to be found. The views are nothing short of spectacular. You will be more than pleased, I know I was!

A new tradition.

We stayed here for our annual grouse hunt and cutting down our Christmas tree as we do every year Thanksgiving weekend. This location was perfect and very nice. Will definitely continue our tradition here every year now that we finally found a great place to stay!!

Facowie Lodge is better than advertised!

The location was perfect, and the interior design and layout were outstanding. Dave is a great host and gets back to you immediately. If you want a beautiful northern Minnesota getaway, you can’t find much better!

Everything you need to really unplug.

Our family had THE BEST time at Facowie Lodge. Dave the owner is so kind and hospitable. Our goal was to get away and unplug and we were able to do that in the comfort of the sweetest cabin. We stayed in the Loon side and it was a cozy little cabin in the woods. It had amazing views of beautiful sunsets over the lake from the balcony accessible from the living room and master bedroom. The kitchen was stocked with all the tools you need to cook great meals. The cabin has everything you need for a relaxing vacation!

Oh. My. STARS!

We had a wonderful time staying in the Loon Lodge! David, the owner was so kind and gave us ideas of many things to do in the area. The nights are quiet and beautiful. My favorite part were the STARS!! The lodge was exceptionally clean and well stocked with all you need! Highly recommend if you are looking to just get away from it all!

The Northwoods experience.

You get the North Woods experience at this place. A very peaceful quiet area for hiking and exploring the remote regions of northern Minnesota. A great place for a bonding family vacation away from it all!

Great family getaway!

We love to explore the beauty of Minnesota’s outdoors year round. Beautiful location, clean and quiet, spacious, lots of outdoor activities nearby. Facowie Lodge is the perfect place for our family to have fun together.

A home base for adventures.

Facowie Lodge was a fun place to spend a holiday weekend and worked great as a home base for adventures in Voyagers National Park and Superior National Forest.
