Minnesota Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in Larsmont Cottages Resort

A fantastic home with 3 bedrooms:, 2 queen size bed rooms, 1 king master suite. 2 bathrooms, located just off of Lake Superior, in the northwoods setting of Larsmont Cottages resort. Enjoy this custom crafted cottage with a full designer kitchen, queen sleeper sofa, gas fireplace, dish satellite system, down comforters, four-season porch with heated tile floor, walk out patio, gas grill and single stall garage. The kitchen contains all of the items you need to create your own chef style entrees or just a snack. If dining out is more your idea of vacation, Larsmont Cottages has a full service restaurant and bar located within a short walk of the front door. There are many options for local fare as well. Located within the same facility is the indoor pool and outside hot tub for use by guests. A small gift shop compliments the other amenities. During the day there are various activities, exercise classes, walking trails, kayaking or just enjoying the shore line. At night, grab the marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate bars and head to one of many campfire areas.

The home has wireless internet service, cable, washer and dryer. Please note that this is the north country and internet options are limited so it may be slow at times.

Please note that the rates vary based on days of stay, times of year, special events, etc.

This is a 3 bedroom home with all the fixtures and equipment of a home, NOT a single size hotel room and is priced accordingly.

Due to having reservations departing and arriving on the same date, 11:00 am is the check out time. Failure to depart by 11:00 am could result in additional charges of up to $50 per hour.

Please note that rates vary depending on season, demand and length of stay. The price listed is just an average.

About Lisa Busse

Hi, We are a family with three children that have always enjoyed the outdoors and the lakes. Between school, jobs and errands we needed a place to take a break and reconnect and we found this great home. As our children get older and find activities and jobs so staying in contact with them is important.

Lisa Busse purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Lisa Busse chose Minnesota

I used to live in the Duluth area many years ago and fell in love with Lake Superior and the many offerings it holds for all kinds of people.We would make our annual trips and during our trip home we would always say how we wish we had something of our own along the North Shore. We can now bring our children, family and friends for a quiet get away year round. When we found this home it was just what we wanted. It is single-family home so you get no noise like you would from a townhouse rental. Since it sits alone you don't have to worry about passersby looking in the windows. You can ride a bike, rollerblade, swim, kayak, fish, view local artists works and so much more. With this great property we want to share it with others. We cannot be there all the time and would love for other families to enjoy all that the area has to offer and to reconnect with families and disconnect from stress.

What makes this cottage unique

Since this is a home, it has all the amenities of a home right down to the blender. This way you can cook or grill your own meals and have fresh snacks always ready. Don't have to worry about bears getting into your coolers. :) However, to have a change of pace you can always walk to the restaurant for a wonderful glass of wine and a gourmet dinner. No worries about driving. There are several activities on property so the kids can do their thing while Mom gets a spa treatment and Dad sits in the hot tub or goes fishing. You have so much more space that if you rented a hotel room. Everyone can have their own area to relax.

Great access to Lake Superior

  • 5 of 5

The home was ready at the time advertised. Very nicely decorated and very comfortable. Easy access to Lake Superior as well as the Larsmont Resort facilities. It was great to have the Larsmont Restaurant (one of the better options in the area) available at the times we didn't want to cook ourselves. The home handled our four adults and three children easily. The owner anticipated our questions and needs. We had a couple of days of heavy rain and so it was good to have Duluth and it's attractions nearby - the train museum especially! We will definitely be back!

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property for our family of 8. The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Proximity to the lake was lovely. Throw in the fire rings, Adirondack chairs, s'more kits and you have a perfect North Shore vacation. The folks at the Lodge were so friendly. Thanks to the owners for sharing their comfy, cozy property with us. We look forward to booking there again!

Beautiful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, and clean home. We enjoyed ourselves very much. It was wonderful having our family and friends staying in one area and not 3 different hotel rooms. Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

HIGHLY, recommend this for a long getaway weekend.

Beautifully furnished and everything you would need.

Availability to the pool and hot tub were a 1 minute walk.

Everything was as described including transactions with owner.

We will be back, thank you.

My family had a fabulous time at this beautiful cottage and resort. We couldn't have asked for anything else! So much to do in the area and at the resort. Great for both parents and kids! We are in love with this place.

A single family home located within the Larsmont Cottages development with all the benefits of a resort but more privacy. This home is located within 15 minutes of Duluth and 20 minutes of Canal Park. A great location with the feel of the North Shore and the woods but close to so many activities. The resort offers bike rentals, swimming pool hot tub, spa and other on-site activities. A great area for walking and running. There are several restaurants and local shopping. Head into Two Harbors to get a cappuccino or fresh bakery goods. By traveling further north catch one of many hiking trails. If you love the northwoods, you will only be limited by your imagination. For those that are seeking just relaxation, you can enjoy the shoreline, campfires and cooking your own meals while soaking up the surroundings and watch the local wildlife.

We recommend visiting the small town of Knife River about 3 miles south. Stop in the candy shop for some great candy and frozen treats or go to Emily's Lighthouse cafe for a wonderful lunch or dinner.
