Silver Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The unique feature of this property is the spectacular panoramic high bluff view of Lake Superior. The view is unobstructed and spans the town of Silver Bay to the south and Palisade Head to the north. The A-frame structure features vaulted 2-story window views facing east to Lake Superior. Relax or dine on a second-story deck that provides expansive views along the north shore, Lake Superior, and the sun setting through the woods. The A-frame is completely secluded on 6 wooded acres.

Another unique feature is the location. Less than a mile away, the town of Sliver Bay provides easy access for groceries, wine and spirits, movie rentals, eateries, and gas. Beaver Bay is 5 minutes south with more restaurants and tourist shops. With several state parks nearby, guests will find numerous hiking and biking trails, waterfalls, and scenic views. A snowmobile/ATV trail system is within walking distance of the property.

The A-frame was completed in 2009 and is a perfect blend of new amenities and an 'up north' interior decor complete with log railings, furniture, and tongue & groove throughout. The great room has a vaulted ceiling and panoramic unobstructed views of Lake Superior. Enjoy an even more expansive view from an outdoor seating area on the edge of the bluff.

About Dave Nobbe

We are full-time working professionals who love to get away on the north shore. We have many fond memories from our own childhood of spending vacation time up north, and then created new ones with our 2 children. It is a setting that appeals to those who want to do nothing but relax & enjoy the beauty of the north shore, to those that prefer to be active outdoors.

Dave Nobbe purchased this house in 2008

Why Dave Nobbe chose Minnesota

We chose this property for the unique expansive view of Lake Superior. An added plus is the location and proximity to many state parks, Lutsen Ski Resort, restaurants and stores.

What makes this house unique

The view of Lake Superior changes constantly so we enjoy the ever-changing scenery. We continue to find new scenic locations that are accessible on short or long hikes, or on recreational vehicle trails. The views are spectacular both inside and outside so the weather does not inhibit full enjoyment of the beauty of the north shore.

Amazing location and views

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a long weekend July 14-17. This was our second time staying here and plan to return next summer! The views are stunning (wake up early for a sunrise... wow!) and the location is peaceful. You can be as active as you want, with all that the North Shore has to offer. But it's just as lovely to simply relax and take in the views from the deck. The house is very clean and well-equipped with all that you need (my family stocked the kitchen and cooked all of our meals). Dave is awesome to communicate with - quick to respond and has some really helpful tips for the area. Highly recommended.

Perfect location, beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home for a long weekend when we were up on the North Shore for a family wedding. This well appointed and beautifully decorated home had everything we needed. We spent most of our time just gazing out the windows to the lake, and we slept like babies with the windows open at night listening to the sounds of the loons and other wildlife. The owners manual also had great information on things to do and places to eat. We would highly recommend it!

Perfect Family Getaway! Wish we had stayed longer...

  • 5 of 5

This review is only 6 months late but still worth letting everyone know how amazing this spot is! The owner is responsive and gives you all the information you need. The cabin itself is incredibly clean and has everything you could want or need. The view.... spectacular. It was a perfect family getaway and we hope that we can make staying at this A-Frame an annual summer tradition! And I'm pushing for us to stay longer than 2 nights next time. There is so much to see in the area plus the cabin is so beautiful that you want to make time to simply relax and take in the surroundings.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

Spent several days here with our family. Beautiful cabin in a wonderful location with a spectacular view. Very private, perfect vistas out of any window. Cabin itself very clean and well-appointed. Pleasantly surprised to find small quantities of things often forgotten like laundry detergent and cleaning supplies. Not alot of nearby eating out choices, but nice grocery for eating in and kitchen had everything.

Wonderful Family and Friend Vacation Place

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 days at this cabin and I can't tell you how wonderful the view is!! You could just sit all day and listen to the birds and watch the lake. The fire pit area is also a wonderful place to relax with family and friends. The beds were very comfortable and the cabin had every thing you could want. We had a great time. Saw a fox and a deer on our stay. Also saw a couple big ships from the deck which was very cool. Thanks so much for sharing your house with us. We plan on coming back again.
