House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Growing up in the suburbs, we've always loved the Great Lakes. Not puddles, they are our 'inland sea,' the most wonderful freshwater resource on the surface of the Earth! Though we once owned a place on Northern Lake Michigan, we've switched allegiance to the bigger, wilder, even better Lake Superior.
Owner purchased this House in 2008
Why Owner chose Hovland
We chose the North Shore of Lake Superior because of its extraordinary natural beauty, in a whole different dimension from our pleasant suburban life. Whether we're hiking, watching wildlife, relaxing by the lake, eating at the Angry Trout or Crooked Spoon restaurant, or talking quietly by the fire, we just love it! Forget all the 'screens' of your life and look at all the stars instead! (There is wifi,though.)
What makes this House unique
The Hovland area of the North Shore is even more pristine and private than the nearby 'metro' of Grand Marais, Minnesota (population under 4000). If you look (carefully) from only a couple of places on our property, you'll be able to spot another house through the woods. In the bookshelves and on the refrigerator, you'll find info about our favorite trails, places to eat, natural history subjects, and more. You'll feel invigorated by the sound of the waves, the smell of the woods, and the sight of ravens, bald eagles, white pines, and endless birch trees, maybe even the river otters who come out on the 'big lake' to fish - and play wrestle!

Fall Get Away
It was a delight!
Fabulous North Shore Property
Amazing home right on Lake Superior, surrounded by nature, can't get any better than this.
Great house, beautiful location. As advertised. We enjoyed our stay completely.
Wonderful, better than expected
Beautiful house with a gorgeous lake right outside.
Thank you J. H. We hope to come back to unwind again soon.
Great place to get away
Very nice modern home with beautiful views and very private. We didn't think we would mind being away from the internet and "screens" but really missed the comfort that having cell service provides. But we definitely would consider staying again.
Good News! Wifi will be in by the end of the day Oct 27,2018.Jeannie
