Westrom Prayer Cabin
The Westrom Prayer Cabin was built in loving memory of Marvin H. Westrom by his wife, Louise Westrom Klawitter. Marv loved to fish and laugh and was a really great Grandpa. He grew up in the Grantsburg area where he served in his church and community. Marv was well liked and made a difference in the lives of all he touched. Over 85 friends and family members were involved in the construction, furnishing and decorating of this cabin. The desire of Marvin’s family is that this cabin be used as a place set apart for God’s people to be refreshed spiritually, physically, and emotionally and be drawn into an intimate and deeper walk with Jesus.
The Westrom Prayer Cabin is a handcrafted, dovetail-type log building tucked back in the woods. It is set on a hillside overlooking a beautiful valley. With its “all on one level” floor plan, it is like walking into your own log cabin suite. Our first cabin with a gas fireplace, it also has electric heat, air-conditioning, microwave oven, toaster, refrigerator, coffee maker, dishes, silverware, a sink and water jug for drinking and cooking needs and miscellaneous utensils. In seeking to make your stay as comfortable as possible, we have provided a queen size bed, table and chairs, swivel/glider rocker, and comfortable twin sleeper chair.
Both a very modern, well lit, heated pit toilet is near the cabin and a fully modern bathroom with shower is available close by. View a photo tour of our shower house and outhouses.
To access the prayer cabin, a short downhill hike is required.
There is a fire ring area that the Prayer Cabin guests can share and firewood for campfires is available for purchase on site. Check with the office.
