About Barb Daugs
Visiting the North Shore has been a part of our lives for 33 years and we enjoy both the lake and SHT. We have set a goal to try and hike the entire Superior Hiking Trail. We've hiked or snow-shoed over 150 miles on the trail. Much of it has been many times over on some of our favorite hikes so we still have over 200 miles to finish the entire SHT! We hike in most weather conditions, and do both day and night hikes. We have captured incredible sunsets on the trail by doing this. We have also seen some awesome northern lights. Star gazing from one of the summits on our hikes is a site you just have to see to believe. The stars are so brilliant! Our other much loved part on the shore is just gazing at or walking along the shore of Lake Superior. The beauty of the sunrises, sunsets, as well as moon rises on the lake combined with the sound of the waves splashing onto the rocky shoreline are magical. The waves make for some incredible photo shots on the shore especially during the sunrise or sunset! We also enjoy star gazing at the water’s edge in lawn chairs. We also have had many a night campfires by the lake. We finally decided we love it up on the North Shore so much, why not look for a place of our own? We wanted our place to be centrally located because we hike all areas of the Superior Hiking Trail. Also, we get up early to photograph the sunrise at various places on the shore, so we did not want to be limited to just one end of the shore. We thought being right between Duluth and Grand Marais was a perfect position. We also wanted to be close enough that we can get here from the cities in 3 hours. We were pretty excited to find this quiet, upscale community of cottages that perfectly fit our needs! We aim to provide a clean, comfortable, well maintained place for our family and guests to relish all the North Shore has to offer, and provide a restful experience of hospitality at its best!
Barb Daugs purchased this Townhome in 2014
Why Barb Daugs chose Beaver Bay
Location, location, location. Our vacation home is centrally located just off Minnesota scenic North Shore drive Highway 61 and surrounded by some of the premier vacation state park destinations in Minnesota. The closest being Split Rock Lighthouse which is one of the most visited and photographed lighthouses in the nation! It is hard to beat our location for travelers who want to be centrally located and capture “all” the shore has to offer. We think you will agree due to the nature of the shores length, if you are too far northeast or southwest you get trapped into only seeing part of the shore when you visit. But our location meets the needs of the travelers who want to see it all. Or, remain in this beautiful section of the shore and enjoy the many premier Minnesota favorite destinations right near us. For details on time estimations to some of these locations, see the list in the description section. Also, this cottage provides a wonderful, quiet setting to kick-back, relax and dine-in on your favorite foods. It is a nice, comfortable place to hang out and socialize with your friends and family, especially if the weather is bad and you can't go out and enjoy God's creation.

Best Place I Have Ever Stayed!!
Windsong is unbelievable. The cleanest, most generously supplied, wonderfully comfortable place I have ever stayed. Add to that the personal attention and care from owners to be sure your stay goes well, and there is no comparing Windsong to any other vacation rental.
Great location and awesome views!!
Wifi was out and Barb and Bob the host were able to fix the problem with in minutes of notifying them!! We had a great time!
A real gem on Lake Superior! So relaxing!
We came for a long weekend spring break get away and absolutely loved staying here! Our hosts were wonderful in making sure that every detail was taken care of. This vacation home was clean, quiet, and very comfortable... it has everything a person could ask for! Would recommend staying here to my friends and family, and we will definitely be back!
A wonderful stay on Lake Superior
This vacation property is exceptionally clean, comfortable, cozy, and is beautifully located on Lake Superior. Beaver Bay is a great location from which to explore the North Shore. Our group of 4 enjoyed touring the Split Rock Lighthouse, hiking in Tettegouche State Park, and spending time in Grand Marais and Two Harbors. Barb was readily available for questions both before and during our stay. We had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend this property.
Beautiful setting for family enjoyment
All the details such as soft snuggly blankets to lip balm in the bathroom. Enough room for 6 to be together or apart comfortably.
Beautiful views. Close to many great state parks to visit during the day. Perfect setting. Thank you for sharing.
Hi Robben, We are so happy to have your perspective on our vacation home. Yes we like to pamper our guests with those very soft blankets, soft sheets and comfy beds, Egyptian Cotton towels, a basket under the bathroom sink with things guest may need. Lip balm was a hit this year! We too like that it really fits 3 couples well. It was a priority to have 3 beds and 3 baths. We are so happy you tried us out. Thank you for your business and taking such great care of our home. Look forward to hosting you all again. Blessings, Barb and Bob
Loved everything about it
Just bring yourselves, Barb has the most well-stocked, best place to stay (in one of the best locations!) on the North Shore. We’ll be back.
Nick thank you! We are so happy you liked our vacation home. The best locations on the shore - we agree. It really helps my hubby who likes to take photographs of the shore. We can stay in our area with all the premier state parks or only 50 minutes from Duluth or 60 minutes to Grand Marais or 35 minutes to Lutsen. It just tickles us to hear that we are the best place to stay. We truly have put our heart and head into creating a beyond the ordinary. No more vacation rental - but a vacation home. We are so thankful we have hit the goal!! Thank you for your business to keep the dream alive and also for taking such great care of our home. We look forward to hosting you all again! Blessings, Barb and Bob
