Cohasset Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Family built and owned since 1936, Shady Shore provides simple, rejuvenating vacations for people looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The property's 35 acres of lakeside property were originally homesteaded by Swedish-immigrant, Gust Hedquist, in 1892 and still don the impressive White Pines integral to the area’s historic logging industry.
Maintaining some of that old-world feel, our lakeside cabin is supplied with all the amenities necessary for a relaxing vacation and offer aesthetic touches unique to the resort’s history and location. The historic cabin can accommodate couples and larger family gatherings alike.
Located in the heart of lake country and conveniently situated alongside fishing legend, Moose Lake, of Deer River, MN our family property maintains a great reputation in a long history of northern Minnesota fishing destinations. Only 2 miles from Chippewa National Forest and another 19 miles from the bubbling resort-town of Grand Rapids, MN, Shady Shore also serves as a great home base for those longing to explore northern Minnesota’s area attractions. With golf courses, museums, logging camps, iron ore mines, movie theaters, and shopping centers only minutes away even rainy days on our family property prove to be a great time!

About Kiara Jorgenson
Linda (Hedquist) Jorgenson grew up on this property, which was homesteaded by her Grandfather Gust Hedquist in 1892. Linda's Father, Karl, hand built each cabin in the 30's, 40's and 50's and ran the Resort as a family vacation destination until 1976.
At that time Linda and her late husband, Jim Jorgenson, purchased the land and began to remodel. Now Linda's two sons, along with their families, have taken steps to further modernize the grounds and the buildings, all the while maintaining the original vision and Swedish flavor of Shady Shore.

Why Kiara Jorgenson chose Cohasset
Shady Shore is one of the only remaining historic, family-founded and family-run properties in MN. Our vacation spot is unique due to it's heritage, warm charm, and the outstanding service our family provides. Guests who return year after year enjoy participating in this living legacy.
Our property is accommodating for parties of varied size. Even large group events (reunion, small weddings, etc.) work well at Shady Shore, given our private space and property flexibility.
What makes this cottage unique
Our cabin is made with timbers logged from the homestead property. The original touches remain: hardwood floors, red Swedish roofs, french-pane windows, and Hedquist family antiques displayed along cabin walls.
Our sandy shoreline is among the best in the area. Sandy and completely weed-free for over 100 feet, the shallow waters are perfect for young children and water sports. We have three docks on the property, making accessibility to boating, paddle boating, kayaking and canoeing very easy.
Our cabin is 15 feet from the water, with little incline to the shore. Guests, young and old, have an easy time enjoying our property.
