We would love for you to stay at our log cabin on the North Shore of Lake Superior! It is a great place to create your perfect vacation.
With beautiful, 270 degree views overlooking Lake Superior and the steep hills of Tettegouche State Park, the cabin offers an awe-inspiring location to observe the beauty of the surrounding area.
Perched on a wooded hill 600 ft higher than Lake Superior, the Apostle Islands on the south shore can be seen along with the large ships going to and from Duluth. Witness spectacular sunrises and sunsets, experience impressive weather patterns and watch for falling stars and the northern lights at night!
We built this full scribed log cabin out of large white pine logs in a peaceful and remote location. Enjoy this perfect place to relax all day or return to your home-away-from-home after an adventurous day of exploring the hiking trails, State Parks, and beautiful rocky beaches of Lake Superior. Sit on the deck or screened porch and enjoy the views. Listen to the wind in the trees, the morning birdsong, or the distant sound of a waterfall. Grill a steak or have a drink while taking in the peace and quite. Read, play games, sit around a fire at night watching the moon on Lake Superior, or hike to the river and see the falls!
Baptism River and Illgen falls, with a thunderous 50 foot drop, are about 1/4 mile from the cabin and are easily accessible. Watch people rope swinging or jumping at the falls or walk up river to take a dip in a private swimming spot.
Lake Superior and Crystal Beach are only 1.5 miles away. This beach offers a less-visited place to look for rocks, listen to the waves, or take a refreshing swim in the cold waters of Lake Superior.
Kayak the clear waters of the big lake and enjoy the cliffs and rocky shoreline or bike the paved Gitchi-Gami trail.
