RECLAIMED BARN ON LAKE SUPERIOR SLEEPS 20! 320 ACRES WITH SANDY BEACH!

Brule House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

The Lake Superior Barn is a 4,250 sq. foot home with 4 bathrooms and accommodations to easily sleep 20 people in the 6 bedrooms and 15 beds…. It is designed to accommodate multiple families with open bathrooms and individual toilets and showers. The home is just 30 minutes east of Duluth on the sandy south shore of Lake Superior.

Lake Superior Barn stands on 320 acres of remote wilderness and sandy beach. The home sits on the south shore of Lake Superior, staring across the lake to the North Shore cities of Duluth and Two Harbors whose lights twinkle in the distance at night. The property is completely surrounded by the Brule River State Forest so there is not another home on the Lake Superior shoreline for miles… Enjoy the secluded sandy beach or walk it like an ocean looking for beach-glass. Listen to the waves crash or swim in the cleanest of all the Great Lakes where the temperature can reach 60 or 70 degrees in the shallow, sandy bottom water. Warm up to a driftwood fire or roast s'mores on the waterfront.

Once back to the house, wash the sand off your feet in the outside shower while taking in the 180 degree view of Lake Superior. Enjoy the 1600 sq foot reclaimed deck just outside the beautiful kitchen and a pantry with all the extra ingredients and spices you may have forgotten. Build a fire with firewood provided in the stone fireplace or lay in a bean bag and pick a book to read from the stocked bookshelves in the loft. Lake Superior Barn has 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 3 showers built from the reclaimed lumber, steel and nails of 7 turn of the century Minnesota barns. The game room has radiant concrete heat to warm your toes as you play ping pong, Foosball or lounge on the couch to watch a movie

The Lake Superior Barn is a unique and rustic experience... there is a TV, but no satellite or cable TV... plenty of cards, books and boardgames! We do have APPLE TV... like a large iPod with movies, TV shows & music.

On the 320 acres of forest, there are trails through the woods and bridges over Haukkula Creek that flows the length of the property. Camp overnight in the authentic, 400 sq foot canvas tipi within view of the house. Pick raspberries and wild strawberries in the summer or snowshoe the woods and trails in the winter… either way, you will never encounter another person on the private and secluded land. End the day by building a fire while overlooking Lake Superior and watch the summer sun set over the hills of Duluth.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Nicole,



Our stay at the Barn was absolutely Amazing! One of the boys said the pictures of the barn on the internet didn't do it justice. It was unbelievably unique and very impressive! We had everything we needed and more. We really lucked out with the weather. Beautiful fall days for hiking and playing and then a beautiful snowfall Thanksgiving night. The hot tub and sauna were a hit! Used everyday and night and most of them did the roll in the snow and then back into the sauna or tub. The little ones thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub! A good time was had by all. They all agreed we should do it again.







Thank you for everything. It was a great place to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary.

We have 5 kids... 4 boys and 1 girl. We live in Minneapolis, MN. Enjoy 'the Barn...'

Thanks, Tom & Nicole and Kids

Tom Wolfe purchased this house in 2007

We fell in love with the Lake, the sound of the waves, the endless sandy beach and the fact that you are 30 minutes from an amazing city like Duluth, but you feel so remote and surrounded by nature.

The property is totally remote and surrounded by State forest... you will very likely not see another person. The reclaimed home is unique and the feel is rustic. The beach is secluded and it feels like you are on an ocean.

A GREAT PROPERTY FOR A MEMORABLE GROUP GATHERING!

  • 5 of 5
The Barn is an ideal setting for any group gathering, whether it is a family reunion, wedding, or corporate retreat. We rented it the weekend after my daughter’s wedding so the families could spend time getting and get to know each other, a group of about 18 friends & family. There are so many areas to gather and things to do that our group was able to be all together as one in the great room/kitchen area or on the large deck for meals and other activities, or split up in one of the many gathering areas. It was a pleasure to cook in the fully equip kitchen, which was large enough for several cooks, and part of the great room so you were never away from the fun! The property has so much to offer, regardless of the weather, there was always something to do. It was sunny and warm during most of our visit so we all spent much of our time walking on the beach, relaxing in the hot tub and sauna, playing football and Frisbee on the large grassy back yard, and enjoying cocktails on the huge L-shape deck as we watched sunsets over the lake, and the twinkling of Duluth harbor lights into the evening. During a brief rain one afternoon, there was a group watching movies on the comfortable sofa in front of a large screen TV, some playing table tennis in the game room, and others spent time in front of the cozy fireplace; visiting, playing games, reading books and napping. The bedrooms were spacious with lots of windows, and the beds were comfortable with nice linens and comforters. The design of the bathrooms are a great use of space with the showers and wash areas separate from the toilet, very efficient for a large group. I am so glad we found this property, it will enhance the memory of the wonderful wedding weekend!

2ND TIME TO THE BARN

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time to the barn and once again, we had a blast. We went with 4 families total and it is the perfect spot for this size of group. The accomodations are wonderful and unique - everything you could want is there. We often are amazed that the owners would let other people rent out such a fabulous place - not only is the house magnificent, but the property and the view of the lake is spectacular. We had teenagers with us and this is one of their favorite vacations of the year. We hiked, skied, hot tubed, played games, worked on puzzles, and cooked meals together. Could not have asked for a better 3 days. Special thanks to the owners for letting other people share this gift.

BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at the barn the week of Christmas. We had a WONDERFUL time at the barn!! Everyone in the family just raved about how fantastic it was. My son in law told me repeatedly it was the best idea I ever had. We all want to come back in the future. It was a little dicey getting there, we arrived right at the end of a 24” snow fall, (after another 24” the day before). We were in close contact with the caretakers, they were extremely helpful, making sure the county road had been plowed first, then re-routing us so we could avoid a big hill just before the driveway. We arrived with no problems.

The barn was very homey and comfortable, with more amenities than you would expect. This was the first time our family ever spent Christmas away from home and it was the best one we ever had. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

HORSE CRAZY

  • 5 of 5
We had a first ever family gathering of "aging" siblings, their families and youngsters. What a wonderful place to host such an event especially for all of the good folks out there who appreciate the beauty and majesty of Lake Superior and its surroundings. We were greeted at this most unique "barn" by friendly and informative caretakers who led us through all of the "possibilities" this stay could present to us...all holding very true. I would recommend this stay to all who appreciate wilderness type of surroundings, those who can build a good campfire either on the point, the teepee or beach and in the "barn's' stone fireplace and those who can deeply appreciate a good old pounding wind, storm and waves from a grand old lake while surrounded by warm family , conversation and laughter. Oh and don't forget the wood burning hot tub and sauna where one can sit with sleet and rain pounding down on shoulders but still be toasty and warm . Absolutely incredible experience in the most unique of surroundings.

OUR 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION WAS PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for a week to celebrate our 10-year anniversary with close friends and family. The Barn exceeded our expectations. The building was large, comfortable, and nicely appointed. The location was exquisite. There were several families in our group and many young kids. We swam and played at the beach almost every day; fired up the hot tub and sauna; and played soccer and volley ball in the large lawn over looking Lake Superior. We also got a chance to kayak to the nearby sea caves.

All and all, we had a very nice stay and the Barn suited our needs quite well. Well worth the money.

Can't wait until our 20th!
