Space 530 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


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.

Perfect Cabin in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

You will enjoy the views of Lake Superior and the proximity of beautiful rock beaches & cliffs, water caves, waterfalls and hiking trails. Everything you need is provided including firewood for the fire pit, wood stove and sauna. Great hints on which trails to hike and which views are the best in the comment book so read that early during your stay. Highly recommended and we will return.

Our little get away...

  • 5 of 5

This place is a slice of heaven right on earth. On our drive in it was late so we got to see the full moon shine off the lake so awesome. Everything you need other then personal items are available at the cabin. Trails, Waterfalls an Lake Superior is within minutes of the cabin. Cant wait to plan our next trip out here we most defiantly will stay longer then 4days next time. So quite an peaceful an most of all you feel secluded.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Log Cabin for our 1 year anniversary. We needed this since he works 12 hours a day. We both couldn't wait till we arrived! 1st day we had lunch at the Marina overlooking the lake on the beach before check in, Then we saw the Lighthouse. It was Amazing! Checked in at 5 and unloaded then went to Dinner at Cove Pointe Dining Room. Such great food and Scenery. 2nd day we made pancakes then hiked to the High Falls and two step falls at Tettegouche State Park then came back to the cabin for Lunch on the back porch. Then went to Black beach and chilled for a bit and skipped Rocks on the water and took some awesome photos of cliffs. then we drove up to Palisade head to look over the cliff and saw people repelling off the cliffs. Id freak out! then we went to the cabin to get dressed for dinner at Splashing Rock Restaurant overlooking the lake, omg gorgeous! after dinner we went down by the lake to watch the waves splashing on the boulders and thought about the meaning of life. it was amazing! then went and sat by the fire pit at the restaurant then went for ice cream then back to the cabin to watch the sun set and tried to watch a movie but fell asleep lol we were so worn out. the next day we left for home at 8am and on the way home spent the whole day at Wisconsin Dells for mini golf, pizza and walked the town then drove home to Illinois arrived at 9pm. It was an Amazing trip! the cabin was so clean and everything was there that we would need. NO TECHNOLOGY! just the both of us spending quality time together and re-connected! It was Fantastic!!! Thank You Shawn and Ed.

Shawn and Ed's cabin was hands down perfect for us. We felt at home the minute we walked in. Breathtaking views of the lake during the day and the Milky Way at night, a perfectly stocked cabin, meals on the deck with the nuthatches providing dinner music, the peace and solitude we both needed after the craziness of work, I could go on and on but suffice it to say when I'm done with my review I'm sending an email to Shawn re: booking for next year. Couldn't have asked for a better home away from home or better hosts!

Perfect Personal Retreat Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful week at this perfect little cabin at the end of April, it was well stocked with firewood, and kitchenware and everything I needed including a wonderful guidebook on hiking the waterfalls, I hiked one every day...they were spectacular and wild in the early spring. One morning there was a pileated Woodpecker on a pine tree out front! I really appreciated having a comfortable reading chair to pull up to the wood stove after dinner for reading and gazing at Lake Superior. I hope to go back again to this perfect spot on the North Shore.

A Truly Special Cabin and Location

  • 5 of 5

I recommend this cabin on the north shore of Lake Superior. It's very special. The cabin and the area are equally amazing. Year round, it's beautiful. It is so cozy and secluded, yet close to all of the state parks and dining spots. There is no place we have been that is more relaxing then our vacations here.
