A nature lover's paradise, this unique home is set on a pedestal with wrap-around deck to make the most of views of Lake Superior and pine and birch forests year-round.
This modern, yet quaint, home is within ten miles of Gooseberry, Tettegouche, and Split Rock State Parks (home of Split Rock Lighthouse) as well as Palisade Head. It is five miles from the Silver Bay Marina.
Enjoy skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing in the winter and hiking, biking, rock climbing and water sports in the summer.
Our retreat is completely and thoughtfully furnished for your convenience and offers privacy and serenity.
We are residents of Elk River, Minnesota who have a passion for the North Shore - Lake Superior.
Conni Natwick purchased this house in 2005
The North Shore is a uniquely beautiful and geologically significant location. Our vacation home is only 50 miles northeast of Duluth, MN and 40 miles southwest of Lutsen, MN. There are ample opportunities to hike, bike or snowmobile miles of Lake Superior Hiking Trails and explore the beautiful state parks including Gooseberry, Split Rock and Tettegouche, home of amazing waterfalls, rivers, rock formations and panoramic views.
Our Treehouse offers a beautiful view of Lake Superior from the treetops of our 2 1/2 acres of white pine forest. At our retreat you will enjoy total privacy surrounded by nature. In addition to a fully furnished great room (kitchen, dining and living), two large bedrooms (one has two queen beds, a futon and an on suite bath - total of two baths), there is a 2 1/2 car garage for your use. To truly enjoy the outdoors, we offer a screened-in porch and huge lake-facing deck.
Very unique, comfortable rental home in a very beautiful setting. Very close to all the things we love to see on the North Shore. Pictures do not do justice to this home. We recommend this home to friends, and plan to return again.
We recently stayed here on a short North Shore getaway. It's ideal for visiting Split Rock, Gooseberry, and Tettegouche. The house was comfortable, well stocked, and all communication was smooth, quick, and very easy. Loved the wooded area surrounding the house. Nice view of the lake. Really couldn't have asked for much more.
This is a unique home in a beautiful setting. Light, airy, very clean, beautifully decorated with sumptious beds. Surrounded by woods with a beautiful view of the lake. Sit on the deck, have some tea (or a cocktail) and feel your shoulders relax. Conni is a wonderful, helpful person and the photos here do not do this place justice. I was absolutely thrilled with the house.
Very close to all things we love about the North Shore. Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls are just minutes south. The wonderful small town of Beaver Bay is only 2 miles away. I suggest the Northern Lights cafe and the flea market in Beaver Bay. Betty's Pies (south) and Tom's Logging Camp (also south) are great places to visit as well.
There is a stereo with wonderful selection of music, as well as many movies, books and games which give you something to do inside, if you can tear youself away from the great outdoors. Two firepits for bonfires and s'mores await.
This is also a very private place. Snuggled back a bit from the road in a thick birch and pine forest to make it feel very secluded. Perfect for a retreat or a romantic get away.
There is nothing disappointing about this place. From the people who own it and graciously share it, to the setting, to the beautiful country that is Lake Superior's North Shore, it is all simply wonderful. The only bad thing? You eventually have to leave. We will be back. A+++++++++++++++++
