Guestbook comments from the manager

6 grown men had a weekend to remember. The weather was foggy but we still golfed and had a fabulous fire. In the CD player when we arrived was "rent" and became the theme song for the weekend. None of us will admit we like the songs outside of this cabin. The Canadian won the poker game, the crafty older silver fox brother was thecwrestling champ and the man who owned the weekend kept an eye on the milk. Well all go home happy with dreams of returning some day.

Fantastic Getaway Anytime!

  • 5 out of 5
My family had a fantastic time at this gorgeous getaway spot! Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in Philadelphia, PA but still with all the amenities you could hope for. Great kitchen, pool table for fun in the evening (or any time), fire pit outside (perfect for s'mores - and we had a lot of those,), multiple rooms to gather for games, good conversations, reading a good book or taking a nap! Close to great little towns to go exploring, so many hidden lakes to discover (makes sense given it is the land of 10,000 lakes) and go swimming, fishing and kayaking. Thank you for a great vacation!

Family Long Week-end

  • 5 out of 5
The Forest Chalet, for the eight family members, was excellent; large, yet cozy, quiet, secluded and very inviting. We all enjoyed ourselves immensely. All family members appreciated the experience. Owners easy to work with. We would recommend highly. Thank you.

Family Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fabulous stay at the Forest Chalet. We loved the 4 season porch and an added bonus was the basement that the kids claimed for the long weekend. It was nice to have plenty of room to relax. The location was near a ton of great hiking trails and beautiful scenery. We will definitely let others know about this great escape.

Family retreat

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a wonderful week with our two adult children and their boyfirends at the home. Located in the woods it is secluded from other homes and oe can get a real sense of the north country. Nonetheless, there are great amenities within close driving distance: two great meals at Lutsen. The home is wll appointed and comfortable with plenty of space to go off by yourself,and it comes wiht it own train whistle. What more could you want!

Great week on North Shore

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed in the Forest Chalet as well as another property rented by the same owners in the development. Both are very nice, very remote, and very quiet, with great access to numerous rivers, hiking trails, and state parks by short car ride. Having dogs along is easy, given the remoteness of (especially) the Forest Chalet. The house is quite nice - we had 5 adults and 4 kids there with no problem, though the loft bedroom can be loud if any late sleepers are planning on using it. Highly recommended overall.

Owner's Response: Erik,
We agree, the loft is for the early risers in the group. The flip side of that is the amazing full moon that rises out of Lake Superior in the winter time and very visible from the loft. Thanks for the kind words
Greg and June
