Split Rock Log Cabin is a beautifully built handcrafted log home perfectly located for your North Shore vacation. A peaceful and calming escape from a busy life, it is a wonderful place to disconnect where you can relax all day or a great place to come home to after a day of exploring the hiking trails, parks, and Lake Superior beaches. Sit on the deck and enjoy the view of the lake while listening to the wind in the large white pines surrounding the cabin. Take a break under the tall pines in the provided hammock or build a fire in the outdoor fire ring. Watch wildlife and listen to the birdsong in the morning. The interior of the cabin is welcoming and spacious and truly is relaxing just to walk into. Enjoy cooking in the large kitchen; relaxing in a recliner or rocking chair in front of the fire; sit on the balcony reading a book; play games, cards, watch a movie; or just have a drink or grill a meal on the deck while enjoying nature and the view. Each season brings a different appeal to the cabin.
It is located just outside the quaint town of Beaver Bay, which has various restaurants and a few shops to explore. The paved Gitchi-Gami trail, which has several segments along the shore, is at the end of the driveway. Bike rental available at Cove Point Crossing about 1/2 mile from the cabin. Bike the trail to Split Rock Lighthouse or Gooseberry Falls. Hike to Cove Point to get a drink or a pizza. Split Rock Lighthouse State Park is a 5 minute drive and Gooseberry Falls is a 15 minute drive away, Palisade Head and Tettegouche State Park only 20 minutes. All of these parks offer great hiking and sightseeing opportunites with waterfalls, lighthouse, and lake views. The Superior HIking Trail, which spans the whole North Shore, is accessible within 1/2 mile of the cabin.
The attractive town of Two Harbors is only 1/2 hour away and has many shops, restaurants, and a lighthouse to explore. Lutsen Mountain near Tofte offers breathtaking views while downhill skiing. Speed down the mountain on the Alpine Slides or take the relaxing Gondola ride up to the top of the Sawtooth range to have a lunch with a sweeping view of Lake Superior. Grand Marais and Ely are about an hour away and have many shops and seasonal festivals and activities. Check out the North House Folk School for year round classes.
In winter some of the best snowshoeing and skiing abound just down the road. Tettegouche has maintained cross country ski trails. All ungroomed trails are great for snowshoeing and the rivers are beautiful in the winter!
There is a snowmobile trail that starts near the cabin and joins up with the north shore trail system. Snowmobile right from the cabin.
We would love to have you stay at our cabin!
