About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Sleeping Porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Hand scribed log cabin perched high on a cliff overlooking lake superior. Surrounded by big red and white pines, it truly is the 'land of the pines.' Kick back on the deck or in the large screen porch and watch the ships coming and going from Silver Bay Harbor. Huge view of the lake and Palisade Head. Very private and peaceful.

Tons to do, near Tettegouche and Split Rock state parks and Silver Bay Marina. Excellent waterfalls, Baptism river, swimming, hiking, fishing, biking, rock climbing, sailing, boating, kayaking, the list goes on...

or a perfect spot to sit and take in the views and do nothing at all.

Winter season brings a whole new array of activities and scenery. The snow covered white pines with the blue waters of Lake Superior is amazing! There is a new dove tail wood fired sauna for those sore skiing, snowmobiling muscles. You can access the North Shore State Trail system from the cabin and get just about anywhere on your snowmobile. There are several great cross country ski trails nearby, including Tettegouche State Park, where you can ski into an old hunting camp of several log cabins and a nice lodge. You can pack in a lunch and make a fire in the fireplace. There is also the Northwoods Ski Trail in Silver Bay and Flathorn-Gegoka in Isabella, just to name a few.

There is a queen and a double bed in the loft with a huge skylight for star gazing and lightning storms. The screen porch becomes a sleeping porch at night with a futon and pull down shades, there is also a comfy futon in the living room.

Centrally located on the North Shore only 50 miles to Grand Marais, 58 miles to Duluth or 50 miles to Ely and the Boundary Waters. The Silver Bay Marina is only six miles away. Superior Hiking trail is a quarter mile.

A fantastic escape!

  • 5 of 5

Shawn and Ed's lovingly built, perfectly situated and well-appointed cabin was the ideal setting for our anniversary weekend. The cabin is located near some of our favorite state parks -- the annual Candlelight Ski event at Gooseberry Falls was magical and the hiking trails at Tettegouche were great, too. To be honest, watching the snow fall from the warmth of the cabin, spending time in the sauna, cooking in the cozy kitchen and admiring the visiting deer were our favorite activities of the weekend.

Perfect north shore getaway in the winter!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED the view of the lake! This cabin is perched high above the entrance to Tettegouche State Park visitors center, so we were extremely close to the Superior Hiking Trail and the trails of the park. Loved the heated floors, wood burning fireplace, outdoor sauna with wood burning fireplace, and sky light above the bed in the loft for stargazing! I loved the wrap around porch and huge windows! The kitchen was just the right size and the sound system allowed us to attached our iPod to listen while we cooked. A true treasure in the winter!

Beautiful Winter Trip

  • 5 of 5

We have always loved Northern Minnesota, but this trip was special. We enjoyed driving up and seeing the quaint cabin in the woods. The view from the deck and cabin is breathtaking. It’s a wonderful place to get away if you enjoy a quiet vacation. It’s located near so many great trails. We spent a day snowshoeing to the tallest waterfall in Minnesota. The sauna is a perfect way to warm up and relax. As our day winded down and we’d enjoyed a wonder surf and turf dinner, I walked up the spiral staircase to find a heart made of rose petals in the loft. We got engaged in the most beautiful place. It was a perfect weekend and wonderful place to enjoy all the beauty of Northern Minnesota.
