Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The unique feature of this property is the spectacular panoramic high bluff view of Lake Superior. The view is unobstructed and spans the town of Silver Bay to the south and Palisade Head to the north. The A-frame structure features vaulted 2-story window views facing east to Lake Superior. Relax or dine on a second-story deck that provides expansive views along the north shore, Lake Superior, and the sun setting through the woods. The A-frame is completely secluded on 6 wooded acres.

Another unique feature is the location. Less than a mile away, the town of Sliver Bay provides easy access for groceries, wine and spirits, movie rentals, eateries, and gas. Beaver Bay is 5 minutes south with more restaurants and tourist shops. With several state parks nearby, guests will find numerous hiking and biking trails, waterfalls, and scenic views. A snowmobile/ATV trail system is within walking distance of the property.

The A-frame was completed in 2009 and is a perfect blend of new amenities and an 'up north' interior decor complete with log railings, furniture, and tongue & groove throughout. The great room has a vaulted ceiling and panoramic unobstructed views of Lake Superior. Enjoy an even more expansive view from an outdoor seating area on the edge of the bluff.

About Dave Nobbe

We are full-time working professionals who love to get away on the north shore. We have many fond memories from our own childhood of spending vacation time up north, and then created new ones with our 2 children. It is a setting that appeals to those who want to do nothing but relax & enjoy the beauty of the north shore, to those that prefer to be active outdoors.

Dave Nobbe purchased this house in 2008

Why Dave Nobbe chose Minnesota

We chose this property for the unique expansive view of Lake Superior. An added plus is the location and proximity to many state parks, Lutsen Ski Resort, restaurants and stores.

What makes this house unique

The view of Lake Superior changes constantly so we enjoy the ever-changing scenery. We continue to find new scenic locations that are accessible on short or long hikes, or on recreational vehicle trails. The views are spectacular both inside and outside so the weather does not inhibit full enjoyment of the beauty of the north shore.

Amazing place, great location with a spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast here. It was so close to the state parks and local restaurants we were able to hike all day and still go out for a meal at night. The cabin was in great condition with everything we needed. I would definitely return to this exact spot. Thank you!

Another Amazing Vacation at the A-Frame!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this rental and we couldn't be more satisfied. Everything was perfect - from the cleanliness of the rental, to the friendliness of the owners, the prime location, and the amazing views! We plan to return again and again!

The Sanctuary is well-named

  • 5 of 5

We stay here every year in May. The home and yard are very clean and well-maintained. Breathtaking view of the lake. Lots of hiking trails. For my girlfriends and me, this is the perfect place to relax and find our real selves again!
