About Alan and Machelle Lampela
We are born and raised in Two Harbors. We owned Al's Bait & Tackle in Two Harbors from 1994 to 2007. Our experience from that business in addition to our travels & staying in vacation rentals helps us to know the things that we appreciated in a vacation home. Alan will be happy to share info on local fishing areas and what you might need to catch fish right off the breakwater (less than 1 mile away). We are grandparents so our home has a great play area in the upstairs family room. Our backyard has swings & sandbox & a play fort. We have a nice fire pit (free wood included) & patio with a gas grill with tables & chairs. We live on the same property so we can help with questions on where to eat, what to see & when & address your needs in a timely manner. We have chosen the name Diamond Willow Vacation Home as Alan spends much of his recreational time finding and sitting around the fire pit and peeling diamond willow to make lamps and furniture. Some of which you will see in our home when you stay. When you are here Alan will be happy to show you how to peel a walking stick if you are interested.
Alan and Machelle Lampela purchased this House in 2002
Why Alan and Machelle Lampela chose Lake No. 2
We originally purchased this home so that we could expand our bait business building. The home has been rented off and on during the last 12 yrs. We have lived in the home for the last 7 years. We decided that it would be fun to meet new people that stay at our vacation home. You will find a nice big back yard and often see deer in our backyard.
What makes this House unique
We love the home because it is truly a family home. The handicap accessibility is a nice feature & once you are in the home there are 36" doorways to all the main floor rooms & a full handicapped bathroom is great. The upstairs family room (Grandma's Attic) has a table & chairs for a girls crafting weekend or coloring or doing a jigsaw puzzle. We also have set up the upstairs for watching movies. There is a great play area for the younger children geared to ages 2 to 8. Great Winter location for snowmobiling and exploring the Superior Hiking Trail and Gooseberry Falls. If you are looking for a place to stay while snowmobiling on the North Shore you will love the convenience of this home. We are less than 1/2 block to Kwik Trip for gas refills or for your coffee and donuts. The corridor out of Two Harbors is right next to the house. The back yard is big enough for your snowmobiles. The parking lot is huge for your vehicles and trailers. Carmody's 61 Bar and Restaurant is less than 1/2 block from the house.

Homey and convienent
This place was a great home base for us to explore the hiking and parks around the north shore. The place has a very homey feel to it, where it feels like someones home and not just a place that is rented out. I only had a brief interaction with Machelle but it was nothing but positive. It feels like the owners truly want you to enjoy yourself here!! Check in was a breeze and good communication.
Thank you so much. Your review means a lot and our hope is to provide a place to stay that does feel like home. We hope you think of us for any future stays.
The place was nice and clean. It was exactly what we needed. Thank you!
Really awesome place to stay
We loved our stay here. The kitchen was well stocked. and Beds comfy. There was even toys for our kids to play with. The only downside is there is no dishwasher, but that won't be enough to keep us from coming back :)
worked out great for us
Great host and very easy to work with. The home had everything we needed and comfortable a place to stay.
The property was the perfect cozy getaway
The house had just enough space and accommodated all of our needs. They even had a pack and play and plenty of good reads for our six month old. Internet was great and so was the beds. We would stay here again and highly recommend.

Our vacation home is located in the city of Two Harbors MN. We are walking distance from great restaurants, grocery store and gift shopping. We are less than a mile from Burlington Bay and Agate Bay and the Breakwater. The home is across the street from the snowmobile corridor from Two Harbors to the North Shore Trail. Spend the day snowmobiling and come back to relax at home or walk to a great restaurant(s) or bar(s). There is plenty of off street parking for your snowmobile(s) and trailer(s). We use to own a bait shop so we can help with where to fish in the area and as a service can clean your fish. We also can help provide you with info on Lake Superior charter fishing. There is parking for your boat and trailer should you want to bring your own boat.
