Tofte Townhome Rental Photos and Description
Townhome, 3 bedrooms (1K,2Q) + sofabed, 3 baths, (sleeps 6-8)
This Premium Home, near Lutsen, is arguably the finest, most luxurious, townhome in the famed Bluefin Bay Resort on the North Shore of Lake Superior. Recently remodeled & redecorated top to bottom in an 'elegant cabin' flavor. Sleeps up to 8. Need a little more space? We have adjoining/nearby equally nice accommodations so you can bring your entire entourage!

(Excuse some background: In Bluefin Bay Resort 'language' our home is sometimes referred to as a 'Grand Superior' - & in that 'language' what we refer to as the 'A' section, downstairs, is a 'Grand Superior One Bedroom' & what we call the 'B' section, upstairs, is a combo of a 'Grand Superior Master Bedroom' and 'Hillside Guest Room.')
Some special ways this unit DIFFERS from other units at this resort...
...one of only 2 town homes in its category with end-unit windows on 2 levels plus upper-level balcony
...only town home in its category with large, easy-to-maneuver square, contemporary 'counter' table in dining area (seats 8)
...4 huge ceiling fans (bigger, more effectively hung, etc., than most similar units) in 3 bedrooms & living room
...marble vanities in 3 baths & kitchen counter
...extra-large marble wet bar in 'B' section
...2 fireplace mantels of huge, cedar logs oozing northwoods ambiance
...special laptop work-counter, with option of Ethernet
...'lock-out doors' (between downstairs & upstairs) swing completely out of way for convenience
...new combo 'B' section will be extra special for guests who've used only 'B' in the past; no sharing stairway with strangers, include another couple or kids
...larger flat-screen TV in living room than any other unit plus 2 other flat-screen TVs
...high-tech 'air tub' whirlpool (in 'A' section bath) meets modern hygiene standards
Stay here & look right down (from upstairs) & directly out at (from downstairs) the nearby waters of Lake Superior, where frequently the crashing waves of the mighty Lake offer spectacular sights & sounds.

About The Owner
We're Barb & Jack, happy to meet you & muse - vicariously - that you might be thinking of enjoying our special 'home away from home' on the North Shore of Lake Superior. We may be retired, sometimes just 'tired :),' but we're fortunate we can stay active & would be pleased if you can enjoy the special wonders of Bluefin Bay Resort. We're relaxing just a bit after high-intensity careers: Barb is a long-time Registered Nurse, partly in EMT, mostly in labor & delivery. Jack's career was in the advertising business, almost entirely in his own advertising agency enterprise. We both were reared in a small-town/agricultural environment in southern Minnesota that has surely left its mark on us forever. We love family (kids, grandkids & great-grandkids!), travel, horses & mules, desert, mountains, oceans, trains, boats, hiking, Jeeping, Western music (different than 'country'!), opera, cowboy poetry, and, and, and.
The Owner purchased this townhome in 1996
Why The Owner chose Tofte
It's easy to fall in love with this part of the country, the North Shore of Lake Superior, largest body of fresh water in the world. We've certainly been smitten. Sometimes this rugged coast is compared to the New England coast. Sometimes the nearby Sawtooth Mountains remind us of the west. The vast range of outdoor recreation opportunities -'right out the back door' - have been a huge attraction: unlimited hiking opportunities, hundreds of miles of XC trails, fishing, charming Americana in the small towns, best Alpine skiing east of the Rockies, kayaking & canoeing, on & on. And, of course, we were also attracted to the wonderful amenities of Bluefin Bay Resort, 2 pools (one outdoor & heated year 'round), 2 hot tubs (one also outdoor), and much more. Bottom line: We're glad we chose Bluefin Bay. We think you will be, too.
What makes this townhome unique
We've done our share of hiking (including backpacking some 200 miles of the famed Superior Hiking Trail & day hikes galore) ...enjoyed picnics overlooking the Lake from atop Mt. Oberg or Carlton Peak ...relaxing (on our deck, or on the rocks a few feet away) to listen to the waves of the Lake crashing (or just lapping at the shoreline) a stone's throw away ...visiting the cascading streams feeding the lake, the cauldrons of the Temperance River, Devil's Kettle on the Brule River, the spectacular double waterfall of the Caribou River ...watching the kids & grand-kids skip rocks when the Lake is quiet ...the 'Smore's sessions around the campfire ...we could go on & on.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Last minute trip to the North Shore... as we were looking for places to stay Thursday evening, and found most everything booked, we were thrilled to come across Bluefin Bay 57! (While we've passed this most gorgeous resort right on Lake Superior, we've never stayed.) Excited to get to our newest destination on the North Shore, we had no ideaa what we were in s tore for: sun-filled room, star-gazing from the // window at night, but most of all a real fireplace!! This room has all the little extra touches one can think of ...we loved it! (Dave:) What topped the whole weekend off was the most gorgeous fall weather!! Hiked Oberg Loop; couldn't believe how vibrant the colors were!! Views were specrtacular! Definitely a must - on to Grand Marais ...one of our favorite places. Ended with dinner at Lutsen. Truly a most wonderful last minute get-away! Kelly & Dave, Prescott, WI
