About the property

Beautiful Swedish Cottage on 100' of private shoreline on Little Pequaywan Lake

**From early June through the end of August, we only rent from Saturday through Saturday to ensure solid bookings all summer long. Please contact us if you have any questions about this policy!**

**Coming March 2018, we will be listing 2 new properties in the same area on VRBO! Please inquire if you are looking to book beyond March.**

This new construction is wonderfully appointed and a great space for your getaway. The interior is constructed with light bright aspen paneling & red oak flooring. The vaulted great room is terrific for entertaining and warming next to the woodstove. The custom kitchen boasts granite countertops, stainless appliances, a center island for gathering and is fully furnished. The full bath is finished off with black Vermont slate, granite countertops and aspen paneling. The two bedrooms and open sleeping loft sleep 6-8 guests. The large deck overlooking the lake leads to a good sized flat yard perfect for playing catch or other outdoor games. From the yard there is set of stairs to the swimming area & dock. The swimming area has clear water with a solid gravel bottom.

Winter: For snowmobiling fanatics, this property is located w/in one mile of the Pequaywan & Brimson Trails! The lake offers a number of species for ice fishermen. The area also has significant public property available for cross country skiing and snowshoeing! We keep the sauna open all winter to allow as many guests as possible to use the amenity. When there are extremely cold temperatures, the sauna may not heat up to the desired temperature. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Summer: Our sauna is a great way to relax at the end of a hard day of vacationing. To add to your relaxing vacation, we also offer a patio with grill/patio furniture, kayaks, and many other amenities for you to enjoy! Little Pequaywan Lake (aka Smith Lake) contains walleye, crappies, pan fish, bass and northern pike for fishing enthusiasts.

About Roxanne

The cottage on Little Pequaywan is owned by a group of friends from the Duluth area who have maintained their friendship through their shared love of the outdoors. Throughout the last several years, we have completed some wild adventures together, such as: kayaking the Mississippi River, biking around Lake Superior and hiking the Grand Canyon from rim to rim to rim.

Lately, we have decided to spend more time enjoying the area we have all lived in for most of our lives, Northern Minnesota! In order to enjoy the area to the fullest extent, we decided to purchase a cabin on one of the most beautiful lakes in the area, Little Pequaywan Lake.

A little more about us:

Tony: Grew up in Chisholm, Minnesota; graduated from the University of MN-Duluth; is currently employed as an engineer in Duluth.

Chandra: Grew up in Minnesota; graduated from Lake Superior College; currently employed in the physical therapy field in the Duluth area.

Lucas: Grew up in Northern Minnesota; graduated from the University of MN-Twin Cities; currently traveling throughout North America implementing business excellence principles within the forest products industry..

Roxanne: Grew up in Sturgeon Lake, MN; graduated from the University of MN-Duluth; currently employed in the organizational development field within the forest products industry.

Roxanne purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Roxanne chose Minnesota

The first time we drove up to this property we knew it was the one for us (likely the reason why we made an offer to purchase the next day!).

The well built and beautifully furnished cottage is situated 100' from the waters edge with a panoramic view from the living room, dining room and front patio. At the waters edge you will find 100' of lakeshore with a hard gravel bottom and a dock to enjoy everything the lake has to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

The beautifully furnished living/dining area is a great place to relax and converse after a long day on the water or in the many acres of state owned forest just minutes from the cabin.

If the outdoors is your primary reason for visiting, you will really enjoy fishing on Little Pequaywan Lake (very little traffic, no public landing) or snowmobiling on the many miles of local trails (less than a mile from the Brimson and Pequaywan trails).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just spent our first wedding anniversary here. Enjoyed the peace and quiet and seclusion. Didn't expect the snowy view, would like to enjoy the cabin in nicer weather. Thanks Lucas and Tony for the chance to stay here. We look forward to making more memories here.

A comfy place with a great view, despite the storm

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. After arriving we really didn't want to carry out our plan of driving up the shore and were especially happy to return after. The beautiful kitchen worked to prepare meals with basic cookware, the dock was a meditative place, the beds were comfy. It was great!

Suggestions-

1) bring a flashlight. A wild storm came thru and we lost power for 2 1/2 hours. Beautiful but the bathroom was pretty dark.

2) we brought a meal delivery box with us (Blue Apron-like) so we had all the makings but wish we had checked on what cookware was available. But we successfully improvised.

3) Roxanne - please post instructions about turning on the sauna

Beautifully perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved being in this gorgeous place! The cottage had everything we needed. The beds were super comfy and the surroundings were so quiet, we all slept SO good. Being right on the lake was wonderful. We didn't catch anything or have the time to use the boats but it didn't really matter because the view was enough to satisfy lack of fish. :) We also loved being "unplugged" during our time there. Our 10 year old son said at least 44 times, "This place is just AMAZING!" And we agree. I hope we can visit again! Thank you so much for everything!

Lovely Kid-Friendly Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just wrapped up a wonderful week at the lake house. We were there with our 3 small children (who LOVED the loft) and we couldn't have asked for a better spot. Amazing view and access to the lake, cozy cabin with everything we needed, and that view was perfect. On dreary days we headed out and hit up Two Harbors and Duluth and had a lot of fun exploring with the kids. A wonderful stay - would highly recommend!
