Tofte Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (sleeps 6-8)
This unit is arguably the coziest, most uniquely located, condo 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 2 more nice Bluefin homes nearby that sleep up to 8 each (one very luxurious, one pet-friendly) so you can bring your entire entourage!

(Excuse some background: In Bluefin Bay Resort 'language' our home is sometimes referred to as a 'Three Bedroom Elite' - & in that 'language' what we refer to as the 'A' section is a 'Studio With Loft' & what we call the 'B' section, upstairs, is a 'Lakeside Guest Room.')

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 condo in 1986
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 condo 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
My husband & I have been coming up here for the past 3 yrs. We decided we would celebrate our wedding anniversary every year up at the North Shore. We've stayed at Bluefin every time, although not in the same units. We stayed in the complete 14 (A&B). We brought up our 3-month old as well. So baby's first time up north! We enjoyed every minute here. Cozy fires, listening to the waves & loving the Keurig coffee maker! I may have to get one! The layout of the unit has been one of our favorites & we felt like we were IN the lake! The view is amazing! Even though the lake looked like the Atlantic Ocean with the size of the waves, it reminded us of our honeymoon in Tortola. But colder, Ha! Thanks for allowing us to stay! We're already looking forward to next year when our son can enjoy a little more of what his parents do. :) Jeff & Alyssa, Hugo, MN
