INFORMATION ON CABIN!!!
Northern Enlightenment is gently placed on five acres of wilderness at the Northeastern point of Pike Lake, the third clearest lake in Minnesota I’m told. Just 15 minutes from the magnificent little town of Grand Marais, you have all the comforts of home while nestled comfortably in peaceful seclusion.
This cabin, built in 2004, is full of charm and wonder. The first floor has a great bedroom with one queen size bed. On the second floor you’ll find a large bedroom with another queen size bed and a daybed that holds 2 twin mattresses, one can be pulled down onto the floor for an extra sleeping place. That bedroom also provides a quiet meditation/reading library. The front bedroom on the second floor holds a wonder for the eyes, it’s all windows and a deck that looks out onto the lake. Sleeping in that queen size bed gives you the stars and moon to dream on, and a comfy chair facing the great outdoors, to lull you into a peaceful trance of relaxation.
The kitchen is large and user-friendly with everything you need to cook a great meal or warm a quick bite in the microwave. the Washer and Dryer in the utility room are a must for keeping your travel bags light. The great dining table is a perfect spot to gather for meals or playing games and watching the wonderland through the huge windows that view the lake. Two full Bathrooms, one on the first floor with a spacious shower (no tub), on the 2nd floor, a shower, and separate spa-jet bathtub.
As soon as you are ready to venture out into nature, you will find a plethora of things to do and plenty of room to romp right outside the doors. One canoe and one kayak provided for your use. Year round, you can take a hike in the spring, summer or fall, or snowshoe or ski out onto the breathtaking frozen lake and feel the fresh crisp air filling you up and bringing you back to your natural joyful state of mind and body. Just two miles back down the Pike Lake Rd you will find 30K of beautifully groomed ski trails with loops to fit any skier’s energy level. Hundreds of miles of hiking and snowmobile trails near by. snow shoeing and hiking on the Superior Trail or the Cascade River Loop are back down the road you traveled to get here. And the amazing Lutsen Mountain ski area, for the downhill skiers, is just thirty minutes south on hwy 61 and offers activities and fun all year long.
This wonderful lake home has a wood-burning stove and in-floor heating.

Thanks again for all your help and assistance prior to the actual vacation trip - it was all done so well.
We had a lovely time at the cabin. Weather was good, next door was very nice German Catholic group, loved the kayaking on the like glass lake surface, home was clean, roomy, had everything like home, glad we did the full week, made lots of trips to surrounding areas, saw local wild life, and best of all away from all the city hassles. Thanks Again for sharing a very spiritual home away from home. Barry, Cathy, Nic, Bri, Pebbles & Roxy (the dogs loved it also). We cleaned up during the week like it was our home, all should of been in order before leaving.
It was my second stay at this lovely, comfortable and homey cabin this year. Every thing was there we needed and we had a wonderful memorable 4 days. Monica and Jerry had everything ready for us. Beautiful location on pike lake, starry nights and so much more. We loved it! Theresa
Pike Lake is a beautiful, clear lake and the cabin was fantastic. It felt more like a home than a rental cabin, as it was full furnished/equipped and decorated, we had no issues with anything in the kitchen or wishing we had something that wasn't there. We would absolutely come back here again.
Our friends from overseas had a lovely time and enjoyed canoeing and kayaking on the Pike Lake. It was close to town and we enjoyed our time tremendously. It was very relaxing. I would highly recommend this very nice cabin. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating.
Beautiful cabin in the woods, very peaceful and has nice lake access.
We were a group of 8 friends traveling to the north shore for some early fall colors. This cabin was perfect for us!
The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed some delicious meals. The bbq and fire-pit were awesome in the evening. We also took turns on the canoe/kayak as well. The cabin is a little further away from the town but in a great location by the lake, for a getaway. Enough beds/linens/towels etc.
Highly recommend it !!
We had a wonderful New Year's Eve holiday at Northern Enlightenment...thanks for sharing your beautiful home! Everyone loved the wood-burning fire place, the cozy living room space, and the beautiful views of the lake from the upstairs lake room. It was so nice to cross-country ski and snowshoe right out the front door onto the lake and warm up next to fireplace...plus the driveway made for a fantastic sledding hill! Hope to come back again, maybe the summer next time.
Lutsen Mountain and the town of Grand Marais are wonderful to visit and spend time. This rental is available year round and summer is just as amazing as our winter retreat. Grand Portage is about an hour away, and an incredible visually pleasing drive.

During the winter/snow months, All or 4 wheel drive is best. The driveway is about half of a city block long and a steep downhill to the lake home, but there is a driveway across the road to park in and sled/carry your gear in if needed.
1/2 down and the other 1/2 due 30 days before arrival
