Gaucho Cabin: Argentina-Inspired A-Frame Cabin

This post contains affiliate links.

This is a beautiful A-Frame cabin designed and built in Grand Marais, Minnesota with inspiration from the owner’s trip to Argentina. The modern simplicity is eco-friendly (solar-powered!) and takes you right back to nature with its surroundings and huge windows.

The off-grid cabin has a bucket-fed outdoor shower as well as an outhouse with a composting toilet. Inside there’s a loft bedroom and a fun netted loft lounge where you can read a book or take a nap. What do you think?

Modern A-Frame with Netted Loft Lounge in Grand Marais, Minnesota

The A-frame sits in an idyllic corner of the forest.

It looks amazing under the stars.

There’s an adorable kitchenette.

A deep basin sink.

The kitchen table is partially suspended by a large rope.

Have a game night on the netting!

And sleep peacefully in the loft.

There’s still plenty of headroom.

It’s also a great spot to curl up with a book.

Beautiful metal siding.

A bucket shower under the trees.

Composting toilet system outside.

It’s just a two-minute walk from the Lake Superior Beach

Would you stay here?


Nestled in a blanket of trees, it blends both seclusion and companionship.

Escape the chaos of life as you completely unwind by the fireplace. Let your imagination wonder on the Lake Superior beach or take a nap in the hammock after a long day of hiking/skiing.

Surrounded by evergreen and birch trees, there is a wide variety of North woods flora and fauna, meandering creeks, and the gorgeous Lake Superior just a short walk away..

The open floor plan and a wall of windows keeps light in during the day, while at night it erases the division between inside and out, giving you the feeling of floating amongst the stars. The expansive night sky in this dark sky sanctuary is especially clear on our wrap around deck.

Enjoy walks to the beach, breathtaking sunsets and beach bonfires, kayaking, biking, hiking to the nearby waterfalls, shopping for vintage treasures or just relaxing/stargazing in the beautiful private backyard.

Built for travelers seeking a retreat in a sustainable stay, we designed this cabin to offer all the necessities one would need in thoughtfulness of nature: solar power for lighting and charging electronics, gas fireplace and stove, A-frame outhouse and rain barrel collection.

The inspiration for Gaucho Cabin came from our time spent living in Argentina, which is where our story together began. Our hope is that travelers can enjoy the same serenity from nature in this rustic refuge that our journey’s brought us.

The interior has been thoughtfully curated with unique decor from Patagonia, Argentina and local Grand Marais artists.
