Hundreds of miles of spectacular hiking trails criss cross the forests and mountains. Mountain biking and horseback riding are available at the top of the hill. Kids of all ages will love the Alpine Slide just up the road. Ride the new 8 passenger Gondola to the top of Moose Mountain and have lunch on the deck of the chalet, it's a spectacular view! Golfers, Superior National Golf course offers 27 holes of beautiful scenery and challenging golf right across Ski Hill Road. Bikers, the newest section of the Gitchi-Gami State trail is just a 1/4 of a mile down Ski Hill Road. Enjoy a smooth ride along the lake, over the waterfalls in Temperance River Park and all the way to Cross River. Walk to our newest neighbor, the North Shore WInery, right across Lodge Lane.

Enjoy a charming 3 bedroom, 2 bath private home as your home base in this recreational paradise. Lutsen's ski hills are just a mile up Ski Hill Road, you can see the ski runs from the master bedroom window. This is the best skiing in Midwest! Cross country ski, snowshoe or take dog sled and sleigh rides along Lake Superior at nearby Lutsen Resort. Miles of scenic snowmobile trails through Superior National Forest accessible directly from our home.

Our home was professionally decorated and it's very comfortably furnished. The master bedroom suite offers a private retreat after a hard day at play. There's a whirlpool for two and a private bath and every window offers a beautiful view of mountains, trees or Lake Superior.

Set in Superior National Forest with no buildings behind it to block the view. Every window that faces the lake has a view of the lake as does the covered deck and screen porch. There's a fire ring to gather around for evenings under the stars and let me tell you, they are spectacular here. It's the ideal vacation home for families and friends. Close to everything you love about the north shore, but away from the busy resorts.

About Jo

If you have never tried snowshoeing, you don't know what you are missing! We are often the only people out on the trails and we can go anywhere we can hike, no need for a groomed trail. The beauty of the area is always there but there's something really special about seeing it all coated in snow. The bare trees allow for views you don't see in the summer. Strap on some snowshoes on your next winter trip and see for yourself, it's amazing!

Jo purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Jo chose Minnesota

We go to the north shore as often as we can, sometimes several times a year. We finally decided owning a home 'up north' made sense for us so we bought a vacation home in Lutsen. Of all the areas along the north shore, Lutsen has the most activities nearby making it a great place to go for an active vacation. We love to hike, snowshoe, golf and of course, watch the 'big lake', all of which we can do within 1/2 a mile of our home.

What makes this cabin unique

Our home is one of only 12 homes that share 20 acres, it's not part of a resort so it's quiet and private but still really close to everything we love to do in Lutsen. We appreciate being out on our screen porch or deck and seeing trees and the lake, not other buildings. What made us fall in love with it is the decor. The home was built in 2001 and decorated right after September 11th so the builder's professional decorators chose a red and white and blue color scheme, it's very colorful and so unique. When we say it's cute, it really is, people love staying here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jo,



We have returned to Kansas and it is over 100 here today, not the beautiful Minnesota weather we have

grown used to this last week. A wonderful stay was had by all and hopefully, we will get to return sometime in the future.



Thank you for sharing your cozy cabin with us. We will be sure to pass the info to any of our friends who may be heading your way.



Thanks again,



Julia

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I didn't give this home 5 stars is because of the issue we had with the coffee pot(s). The home is spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. Jo was wonderful to work with and is going to replace the coffee pot.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that you had an issue with the coffeemaker, it is so new I hadn't even used it yet so I wasn't aware that the design of the pot caused it to dribble, you are the first person to mention it. A new one is on it's way, one with 12 cup capacity, as you requested.

Perfect place for six skiers.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were just what we needed for a long ski weekend for six adults. Having three private bedrooms and two full baths was ideal. The home is well maintained and comfortable. It had everything we needed to prepare all our meals. The location was perfect as well. So close to the ski hills, and within walking distance of the winery!

Cozy convenience

  • 4 of 5

This was such a sweet family experience for an extended weekend. The home was sized just right for the 4 adults and 2 children. When we were not skiing, this home offered a very relaxing atmosphere for all of us. We cooked, played board games, watched TV and connected. Thanks for the memories!

Rustic, homey, and amazing!

  • 5 of 5

A young adult group from my church and I went up to Lutsen to go boarding at the ski resort. The resort is only a mild down the road so it's a wonderful location! Snomobiling trails also nearby the resort! The bathrooms and all the rooms are well kept. The woodsy rustic look was the perfect cabin feel for the people staying behind to listen to music and journal and the woodsy atmosphere outside made the weekend a wonderful getaway from the city. We had such an awesome time and I would recommend anyone going to Lutsen to stay there!

Spectacular scenery with Charming accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to have discovered this vacation home! It was so charming - an idyllic North Shore cabin! Very clean and spacious too. Lutsen and surrounding towns are wonderful. The food, shopping, scenery and outdoor activities are second to none. We especially enjoyed Hughies Tacos and Cook County Whole Foods Cafe in Grand Marais and Moguls Grille & Tap Room in Lutsen. We were very impressed with the skiing at Lutsen Mountain as well. We are already planning our next stay and are excited to share it with our children this time too.

Great Accomidations

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was what I was hoping for and more. The cabin is just down the street from the Lutsen ski resort and we all had a great time skiing and relaxing back at the cabin. I felt very comfortable staying at the cabin as it not only was clean but had all the amenities we needed to have a great trip. The kids especially loved the open living area where we played games most nights.

We'll be back.

Thank you
