HISTORIC, QUAINT & FAMILY-FRIENDLY RESORT-STYLE CABIN

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!

Suitability:
  • smoking allowed
  • children welcome

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.

Kiara Jorgenson purchased this cottage in 1936

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.

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.

slice of heaven

Shady shores was just the thing our family needed. It was wonderful to unplug and enjoy the rustic simplicity of this beautiful resort. We spent time watching and listening to loons and bald eagles. We enjoyed canoeing and the paddle boat. The shallow sandy swimming area was perfect for kids and adults alike. The family who owns and runs Shady Shores was very accomodating and friendly. I highly recommend Shady Shores.

Our homestead property is located in the heart of historic Itasca County and in the midst of the Chippewa National Forest. Secluded and tucked away on 35 acres of wooded land, the cabin sits upon over 600 feet of lakefront and provides a quiet, beautiful get-away.

Activities abound at cabin. Row a tried and true Larsoncraft rowboat by morning. Throw horseshoes by dusk. Top off the evening with a roaring bonfire. Whatever activities you and your family choose, days are sure to pass quickly at Shady Shore.

Our property lies in close proximity to over 1,200 superb fishing holes. Guests, therefore, often experience the goodness of a fresh, flaky Walleye filet, the surface-breaking excitement of a Small-Mouth Bass, or the deep-water dives of a powerful Northern Pike. For the most skilled of anglers the elusive Muskellunge makes for a true trophy challenge. Our fish cleaning house is available to all guests and fishing boats, canoes and paddle boats come with the price of the rental.

Typical activities may include: boating, fishing, sandcastle building, enjoying nature hikes, paddle boating, canoeing, playing volleyball, throwing horseshoes, water skiing, playing board games, barbequing, star gazing, and making smores at night-time bonfires.

Outside of the property, Itasca County has numerous museums, art facilities, golf courses, outdoor recreation areas, casinos, day spas and shopping areas.
