We booked this home way in advance of the fall colors....after spending Easter on the North Shore and loving the area's waterfalls that were really rushing at that time of year, with all the winter meltdown we just knew this was a family retreat to book... as life can be short ..... This home in Beaver Bay was gorgeous and accomomodated my inlaws, daughter, son in law and granddaughter who was two. And could have accomodated more! Right on the water with a great wide path from the house to the shores edge. There is a sandy area for a fire with log seating not to mention the spectacular view of Lake Superior. The owners have several tiki lights for the pathway should you stay down by the waters edge at dark. We brought our own jug of fluid for the lights and flashlights so as to ensure safety getting back to the house. Main floor has sliding doors to the huge deck which overlooks the lake, (we took pictures of a ship in the distance from the deck)the layout is awesome... the kitchen is huge, the dining seats 10... the living room has two sofa's and chairs with a half bathroom on this floor....Basement has a full laundry room, sliding patio doors to walk right outside and has two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Also a fireplace (with chopped wood) on both the basement and main level. A full size air hockey table in the basement. Upper(third floor) is a master suite with a gorgeous jucuzzi tub and walk in tiled shower with a private small balcony in the bedroom overlooking the lake. The loft room on the same floor as the mater suite has two full size air beds, but whoever is staying there will have less privacy but a gorgeous view from the tall glass overlooking the lake. I loved this place and will defininetly rent it again. Thank you Dawn for everything. Location and distance to the sights was perfect! Worth every penny. ( onwer is strict so if you don't know how to behave and respect your surroundings...do not rent this place as you will be charged extra.
