About Loren Johnston
We have enjoyed the journey of transforming an authentic log cabin & crafting a creative 4 bedroom, 3 bath timber home. We have used natural wood, timbers, stone, and tile together to create a 'natural living environment'.
Loren Johnston purchased this House in 1999
Why Loren Johnston chose French River
We built it with a vision of bringing together a warm environment. Situated in a tranquil & natural setting surrounded by trees, seasonal stream, with lots of natural products used in the building process- stone, tile, hand crafted plaster and reclaimed fir timbers.
What makes this House unique
The large open and covered deck area has 2+ picnic tables and some chairs for outside dining, propane grill, and a beautiful view of the natural environment! Enjoy the peaceful setting of nature, seasonal meandering stream around the property, lots of nature, and only a few skips away from the North Shores of Lake Superior.

Beautiful property- will absolutely stay again!
We had a fantastic weekend at the North Shore Timber Home. It is absolutely beautiful and had everything we needed. A great option for large groups who want to enjoy the North Shore but still have access to the amenities of Duluth. Thanks Loren!!
Retreat in MN
Everything went very smoothly. Great to work with. Beautiful, rustic house. Very relaxing and enjoyable weekend!
We had a group of 10 ladies and this place was perfect. Plenty of space for all of us. The location is very peaceful & the creek running close by was very relaxing. It is also close to town.
We would love to visit again!
Our 2019 Bother/Sisters Christmas
Our family gets together every year to celebrate Christmas in the summer. We all agree that this by far was the most beautiful place we have stayed in.
Being in the elder generation it was hard for some of us to get up the walk way to the house. But once we made it we had a great time.
Thank for sharing your home with us.

4 generations get away!
My parents, my husband and I, our three children, two of their spouses and four grandchildren all stayed here. It was an awesome place to stay with plenty of room for everyone! It’s a beautiful place in the woods but close enough to Duluth for whatever you needed or where you wanted to go sightseeing. The house was exactly as described. We made a lot of great memories while staying there!
Friends get away
Amazing place to stay. Night time, you have a Gorgeous view of the night sky! A great get away place. Definitely coming back.
Less than one mile above Lake Superior and McQuade Harbor
