Beautiful cabin with great furnishings.
Very well maintained beautiful property in a secluded area outside of Lutsen. Furniture and beds were very comfortable and furnishings were well thought out.
Thank you. One of our goals is to make our rental homes comfortable and relaxing so guests feel like they are staying at a "home" not a hotel. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you back again!
Such an amazing lodge. I recommend everyone to experience this beautiful property!
This amazing property is so close to the ski mountains and located in such a beautiful remote area. The lodge itself is a 5 Star experience.
We had a great time here. Short drive to ski hill. Thanks!
Thanksgiving on the Woods
The property is lovely. We really enjoyed the many options for common spaces. The fire pit outside was great. There were a few glitches. Some of the “sleeping areas”were no more than a lumpy pullout couch in a high traffic area. The only bed that was halfway comfortable was the bunk...which was a mattress on top of a plywood base. The other concern was the cleanliness of the kitchen . Some of the cookware was greasy and had food particles stuck to them. We felt we had to wash cookware/utensils before we used them. This could be a fabulous getaway spot if it received some much needed maintenance and TLC.
Thank you for your review and comments. We work very hard to try and provide you with the best experience possible but are not always able to experience what you do. Bed comfort is challenging due to different needs of different people. We will look into the mattress's on the pullout couch and see if they need replacement. In addition, we will try and do a better job of inspecting the cookware, but admit, it's frustrating when a renter puts dirty dishes back in the cupboards and we don't catch it.

Beautiful Chalet in a beautiful location
This is one of the nicest homes we have ever rented. The rustic feel combined with high quality timber frame style was perfect. The heated floors were amazing and kept the winter chill away.
Successful Family Gathering
Met our families needs very nicely. Greg helped us out with an early check in with our pre wedding preparations.
