About Becky

Both Jim and I grew up in the Chicago area and live in the City now.

My husband Jim has been traveling to the North Shore since he was boy and has great memories of his family vacations there.

My first trip to the North Shore was just after we were married 15 years ago. I fell in love with area immediately and never wanted our vacations to come to an end.

Becky purchased this house in 2012

Why Becky chose Minnesota

We have been looking for the perfect house and piece of property ever since our first trip up together. Finally our dream came true this past year.

Growing up in, and living in Chicago now, we love the fact, that when at Twin Cedars we can't see our neighbors. That was very important to us.

We try to get to Twin Cedars every chance we get but in the mean time want to share this beautiful piece of the North Shore with you.

What makes this house unique

I remember vividly my first glimpse of Lake Superior right from the driveway. As I walked down the gentle sloping path into the yard for the first time, I saw a cute little footbridge crossing over a seasonal creek. Not only did I have a beautiful, walkable, ledge rock shore stretching out in front of me but a babbling brook as well.

As I strolled up the small creek bed lined with stones and wild roses I realized we had a small Springtime waterfall located just off the deck. This is one of my husbands favorite things to enjoy while grilling.

Inside the house is all 'Knotty pine' that gives you that true 'Up North' feeling.

This is a 1960's custom built house with lots of fun interesting features. With the updated track lighting you can either do some fine needle work and reading or have a cozy family movie night.

Both the Family room and A-Frame have fantastic views of the lake. Just off the A-Fame are a few bird feeders rigged to attract a variety of species and with windows all around being from floor to ceiling the bird watching can be exceptional. It sometimes feels like you are in your own tree house.

The Family room has a huge picture window that looks out over the deck and Lake Superior. You can see all the way to the Horizon here.

Tranquility at its finest

  • 5 of 5

First - the property is delightful. The cabin is warm and inviting. It exudes relaxation. Second - the grounds are amazing. We were so in awe of the majesty of Lake Superior out the back door. This place is a perfect get-away.

Loved very minute we were there. Our family would definitely go back again!!

We made many good memories during our stay. The amount of deer that walk the property was exciting to watch.

Looking forward to the next visit

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice time unplugging from the city. Beautiful property! Great wild life - spotted five deer our first day. The home has everything you need to relax and enjoy the North Shore. There are little touches all around to make it feel like home. Would highly recommend it, except the dates of our next trip :)

Beautiful setting, terrific place!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd winter stay my family has enjoyed at Twin Cedars. I almost don't want to write a great review because I want to keep the place for ourselves - how selfish is that? Our family of 4 (16 year old and 11 year old) finds this to be perfect for us. It could easily accommodate more people, but we love the room to relax. Every detail is handled - sheets, towels, access to spices and cooking oils/sprays (because a person never uses very much and it's wonderful to not worry about bringing things with you). There is a stash of tea, coffee, cocoa and s'more fixings - incredibly welcoming. The owners are easy to work with and clearly value the guests who rent the property with a super clean home, toiletries for use (shampoo, conditioner, lotion) and plenty of information on things to do, places to eat, etc. We spend a lot of our time outside when we are here and access to trails and activities of any kind is very easy. The Norpine XC ski trails are less than a mile away and have multiple access points. Lutsen Resort is close, Grand Marais is a 15 min. drive. No matter what you do, Twin Cedars is an excellent base from which to start. Relaxing here is easy and I know you won't want to leave - we never do! Our teen wanted more time to recline inside, with a book, a view of the big lake and snacks close at hand. A huge thanks to Becky and Jim for setting the bar so high with their second home.

In addition to fantastic scenery and bird watching right off the deck, there are miles of diverse hiking and biking trails that in the winter turn to cross country ski and snow mobile trails.

Just a 5 minute drive from the house is a beautiful water fall down an easy 300 foot path. Or you can choose from many other paths at the same location and take a moderate to more challenging hike and be gone for as long as you want. Many of the Superior Hiking Trail 'heads' are just a stones throw away.

For Downhill Skiers, we are just 2 miles from Beautiful Lutsen Mountain with beginner to Olympic style runs and for Golfers, Superior National Golf Course is 5 minutes away and offers exceptional views as you make your way from Tee to Tee.
