Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Silver Bay - Palisade Log Cabin

Classic log cabin, lakefront property, great view of Lake Superior

The Palisade Log Cabin on the north shore of Lake Superior is located just off Highway 61, one mile east of Silver Bay. It is about a half mile through heavily wooded lots to the 35-year old secluded and authentic log cabin. The cabin sits on 2.6 acres of private land and has more than 460 feet of high rugged Lake Superior shoreline.

There are incredible views to the north of the Palisade Head Cliffs. These cliffs reach 350 feet high and are a favorite of rock climbers. You can hear the waves of the lake crashing against the ledge rock cliffs just 70 feet from the cabin. The sunrises over the lake are spectacular; in the evening you might be able to view the northern lights.

We installed a new geothermal heating system in October 2012 which should keep the cabin warm and cozy all winter long. Enjoy the peace and solitude of the whispering pines and birch while watching a bald eagle flying above. You can read a book or play cards/games near the cabin’s warm wood stove. Outside you can toast marshmallows at the fire pit or play horseshoes. Search for Thomsonites, agates, crystals, cobblestones, or driftwood. Go berry picking or view colorful spring wild flowers and brilliant fall foliage.

Drive the Highway 61/Superior National Forest Scenic Byway and visit the beautiful Minnesota state parks nearby (see map). Hike on The Superior Hiking Trail that runs from Two Harbors to the Canadian border. Ride your bike on the Gitche Gami Bike Trail that runs along Highway 61. Snowmobile on the North Shore State Snowmobiling Trail or drive an ATV on designated ATV trails from Duluth to Grand Portage. Try cross-country skiing on the North Shore Mountain Cross Country Ski Trail. Visit Lutsen Mountains ski resort 36 miles from the cabin.

In the summer you can go to two nearby beautiful sandy beaches which are part of Tettegouche State Park (ask for directions). Take a charter boat tour or fishing trip out of the Silver Bay Marina that is 3.5 miles to the southwest. If you're adventurous, you can go kayaking/canoeing in the cove.

Watch for giant iron ore carriers on Lake Superior, they depart from Silver Bay and head east to Cleveland. Look for wildlife around the cabin and you may see eagle, deer, moose, bear, fox, wolf, and beaver. If you don’t feel like cooking, dine at a variety of fine nearby restaurants (Lemon Wolf, Northern Lights, The Crossings, and Cove Point Lodge in Beaver Bay; Our House in Finland; The Blue Fin in Tofte).

The Palisade Log Cabin is in close proximity to all activities listed here, most within just a few miles. Most important, take time to enjoy a classic log cabin experience on the North Shore!

About Harold and Rae Piepho

Harold and Rae Piepho manage the cabin. The Piepho's have lived on the North Shore for many years, and have extensive knowledge of the area.

Mark and Sarah own the cabin. They moved to the Twin Cities in 2000, and frequently spent time "up north." Sarah's parents have owned a vacation home in Silver Bay for many years. This vacation home served as a launching pad for Mark and Sarah to visit the North Shore. In 2011, Mark and Sarah purchase this cabin. They love spending time at the cabin with their two sons. The quiet cabin in the woods is always a welcome retreat.

Harold and Rae Piepho purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Harold and Rae Piepho chose Minnesota

The north shore of Lake Superior, particularly the stretch along Highway 61 from Duluth to Grand Marais has something for everyone. Silver Bay, which is in right in the middle of this beautiful stretch, is a great place to enjoy the spectacular views of Lake Superior and to visit the many Minnesota State Parks in the area.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy everything we describe on our property listing, especially the serenely beautiful views from log cabin. The area is quiet and relaxing but also provides us with opportunities to venture out and explore a wide variety of destinations along the beautiful North Shore!

Guestbook comments from the manager

As the previous owner, I can tell you that we

loved The Palisade Cabin, and wanted to share

the experience of a true Lake Superior

log cabin! We went live with our VRBO

listing July 10th, 2007 and have first time

guests coming on July 12th and

July 16th! I am amazed at the interest!

I hope you can make it this summer or

fall or even this winter, if we can

make it possible! Thank you for

visiting Palisade Log Cabin on

Lake Superior!

Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous, fabulously located cabin perched atop the cliff's edge with expansive views of Lake Superior right out the back windows, to include the master bedroom. We loved the convenient heat provided by the geothermal heat system and the kind of cozy, romantic, warming fire that can only be provided by a wood stove. The kitchen was stocked with all the home appliances, dishes and pans one would need. Hiking trails can be found EVERYWHERE within five minutes of the cabin. Groomed cross country ski trails are within a 10 minute drive from the cabin. Clearly, we loved our stay at the Palisade Cabin along Superior's North Shore.

We Can't get enough of the North Shore...Palisade Cabin was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have made many trips up the shore over the last 30 years, but this was our first cabin rental. It was perfect for our needs on this 4 day stay, great access to the state parks and the Superior Hiking trail. We looked forward each evening after getting off the trail, to this cozy cabin and the wood stove. We experienced very stormy conditions and the cabin stayed warm and comfortable. The owners have thought of everything we would need and share our similar taste in style , we loved this cabin. We actually kayaked in front of the cabin back in the summer and didn't know it was a rental until later... we grabbed it. Harold was great to work with and had great communication. This cabin was clean, smoke free and fully furnished. The 3/4 height walls were unique and allowed the heat from the wood stove to circulate to all the rooms. We had no problem with the wall height , but understand it might not be quiet enough for youngsters to sleep...

Again, we loved it. Thank you for sharing it, we are planning our next stay!

My husband and I, along with our dog, had a blissful weekend at Palisade cabin. Peaceful and private setting with breathtaking views of Lake Superior. Charming log walls and comfortable furnishings. I wish it were mine! We will definitely be back.

My husband and I took a much needed long weekend at this charming log cabin. When you walk in and see right through the windows to the lake it is mesmorizing. The deck on the lake side of the cabin was perfect for our morning tea and at night with a glass of wine watching the Orange sunset. It was absolutely beautiful. The cabin is a true log cabin and I love the vaulted ceilings and open wall design. It was roomy and comfy and the kitchen was perfect for cooking. The grounds are amazing and we had smores, and fires every night and wine as wel. We watched a playful "white weasel" one morning. That was truly a unique one of a kind of experience. Sitting in the chairs by the edge of the cliff looking at Palisade Cliffs was breathtaking. Our cockapoo loved being able to lay in the sun on the deck and he truly enjoyed his stay as well. Only negative is the over salty water for showering, etc. However, that would never deter us from coming again. We loved it. Thank you for a lovely opportunity in sharing your property with us. We loved the black beach in Silver Bay! Thank you Harold and Rae for answering our questions and for keeping up the cabin. J & D - St. Paul

Silver Bay is midway between Duluth (55 miles to the southwest) and Grand Marais (55 miles to the northeast). It is a great location to see all the beauty of the North Shore of Lake Superior.
