Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five, including three teenage daughters, stayed in the home for three nights over the July 4th weekend. The house is absolutely beautiful - exactly as advertised. The decor was comfortable and very updated. We found the place to be very spacious, clean and well stocked

Besides enjoying this beautiful log home, we loved the setting on Lake Superior near so many wonderful state parks. We spent time kayaking on a wilderness lake, hiking along the rivers, visiting Grand Marais and relaxing on the rocks in front of the home. We would highly recommend this home to others.

Great Group, Great Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Three families skiied Presidents Day weekend and completely enjoyed the space this cabin allowed. Honestly the decor was beautiful, the view was fabulous and the space was clean and comfortable. Communication with the homeowner was easy, the rates were reasonable, and the amenities were complete. Top notch. Will return.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Booked this lakeside cabin for a 4 day girls' trip. Couldn't have asked for a more wonderful place to stay. The five of us are experienced travelers, and we were truly impressed: Seamless booking, beautiful / comfortable / clean space, numerous amenities (including an extremely well stocked kitchen!), and obvious attention to detail. The placement of the cabin-- steps from the lake -- is is gorgeous, and the overall location of the cabin with it's proximity to hiking trails, restaurants and North Shore towns is ideal. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Love-love-love this property!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving I realized that this cabin was going to suit our family of 7 better than I initially thought. All of us instantly felt at home. With 3 beds & 3 associated bathrooms, each couple had adequate privacy. All of the decor and linens are top notch! Even the pullout bed downstairs was comfortable! The kitchen is well appointed with a lot of serving dishes and utinsels, which made entertaining a breeze. There are little instructions everywhere throughout this home (TV, lights, etc.) so you never feel lost. You can tell a lot of thought and care went into the design of this log home. Every room makes use of natural light with big windows and sky lights. Though the cabins around us were also occupied, we still felt a sense of privacy and seclusion.

We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the shoreline, but when it was too cold to do that, we enjoyed drinking coffee by the front window and watching the lake from the comforts of the great room. We enjoyed skiing at Lutsen Mountains, which was only a 10 minute drive. There is a small general/grocery store and liquor store nearby, so restocking was convenient. Our family is already trying to figure out when we'll be able to get back to this great property! Thank you Jerry!

Highly recommend this beautiful home on Lake Superior

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous weekend at this beautiful cabin on Lake Superior. Having recently relocated to the Twin Cities within the last year, our group wanted to explore Northern Minnesota this summer. What a fantastic place to explore the north shore and relax on Lake Superior!

Everything was better than we imagined- the home is clean, comfortable, updated, and well stocked. The owner has not missed any details. If you think the photos are appealing, just wait until you see it in person! Everything from the linens to the kitchenware was top of the line. We found the layout to work well for our group- we could be together in one of the many lounge areas (loft, basement, family room) or take some time to relax in each of the bedrooms.

The cabin is easy to find and the location provides quick and easy access to many of the parks in the area. Due to time constraints, we didn't stray far, but we would recommend Temperance State Park and Caribou Falls. Remember to bring some bottled water for hikes and outdoor activities- us city folk found the water to taste a little off up north :)

The best part of this home is certainly the view- we spent each morning on the back patio enjoying the shoreline views and relaxing. The owner is very accommodating and wonderful to work with. We would highly recommend this home for your next visit Up North!

Beautiful cabin, beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful! The cabin itself is beautiful! Perfect for our family of three couples and one child, with each couple having a bedroom, bathroom, and living area. It is very comfortable, with all the amenities. The views of Lake Superior are superb, especially the reflection of the full moon on a clear night that we were lucky enough to see. We spent a lot of time on the deck, with its comfy furniture, either reading or just gazing at the lake. We prepared several meals in the kitchen, which had all the equipment we needed. All the girls especially enjoyed the sauna - very relaxing. Everyone enjoyed the nearby hiking trails, too. These Oklahomans looking for cooler weather were not disappointed. We had a fire at least half of the nights we were there. All in all, a very enjoyable vacation in a great place! Thanks, Jerry!
