Northern Enlightenment is gently placed on five acres of wilderness at the Northeastern point of Pike Lake, the third clearest lake in Minnesota I’m told. Just 15 minutes from the magnificent little town of Grand Marais, you have all the comforts of home while nestled comfortably in peaceful seclusion.
This cabin, built in 2004, is full of charm and wonder. The first floor has a great bedroom with one queen size bed. On the second floor you’ll find a large bedroom with another queen size bed and a daybed that holds 2 twin mattresses, one can be pulled down onto the floor for an extra sleeping place. That bedroom also provides a quite mediation/reading library. The front bedroom on the second floor holds a wonder for the eyes, it’s all windows and a deck that look out onto the lake. Sleeping in that queensize bed gives you the stars and moon to dream on, and a comfy chair facing the great outdoors, to lull you into a peaceful trance of relaxation.
The kitchen is large and user friendly with everything you need to cook a great meal or warm a quick bite in the microwave. Washer and Dryer are a must for keeping your travel bags light and easy. The great dinning table is a perfect spot to gather for meals or playing games and watching the wonderland through the huge windows that view the lake. Two full Bathrooms, on the first floor with shower no tub, on the 2nd floor, a shower and jacuzzi jet bathtub.
As soon as you’re ready to venture out into nature, you will find a plethora of things to do and plenty of room to romp right outside the doors. One canoe and one kayak available for your use. Year round, you can take a hike in the spring, summer or fall, or snowshoe or ski out onto the breathtaking frozen lake and feel the fresh crisp air filling you up and bringing you back to your natural joyful state of mind and body. Just two miles back down the Pike Lake Rd you will find 30K of beautifully groomed ski trails with loops to fit any skier’s energy level. Hundreds of miles of hiking and snowmobile trails near by and right out the front door as well as snow shoeing and hiking on the Superior Trail or the Cascade River Loop. And the amazing Lutsen Mountain ski area, for the downhill skiers, is just thirty minutes south on hwy 61 and offers activities and fun all year long.
Head up North and watch the sun rise and fall over this oasis of beautiful wilderness and fill your eyes with the moon and stars like you won’t see in the city. This wonderful home and cabin is waiting just for you. Aurora Borealis; the Northern Lights may appear.
This wonderful lake home has a wood-burning stove and in-floor heating. See more photos at justwrightphotos dot phanfare dot com. Click the link below...far below, where it is written: Click Here My Photography Website

Such a lovely experience at the cabin on Pike Lake last weekend! After 15+ years of traveling to the North Shore with the same group of friends, we found this years’ lodging to be perfect for the group. We all enjoyed our stay very much and there has all ready been talk about wanting to get the same unit next year for our annual trip! There is plenty to do for all parties with ice fishing (which was great, we had fresh fish one night for dinner), cross country skiing ( trails were very close by) and snowshoeing on the lake and around the cabin. Some of the ski trails were not “ freshly groomed due to the abundant snow (which made for a lovely cabin outing in itself).
The homeowner spent much of her childhood at her parents cabin on Pike Lake. She now lives in the Twin Cities area and comes up north to renew her serenity and peace of mind. She enjoys sharing this with others that love the outdoors and Northern Minnesota. She had this house/cabin built in 2004 and is working on a trail that follows the creek next to the house. Her lake home is available to rent year round and we feel confident that you will exactly what your heart and soul long for during your stay at Northern Enlightenment. I am Cathy, Rental Manager for Northern Enlightenment, available to help you at anytime. 218-340-1032, or send a message via VRBO.
Lutsen Mountain and the town of Grand Marais are wonderful to visit and spend time. This rental is available year round and summer is just as amazing as our winter retreat.
