About the property

4 Bedroom Home On Lake Superior, 9 Mi. To 3 Parks, Waterfalls, Split Rock Light

Every room looks out over the lawn past the birch and pines onto the world's largest freshwater lake. Relax with your coffee on the seawall as waves crash against the boulder-strewn shore. Listen to the call of loons or relax on the log swing as you watch the sun rise. The North Shore of Lake Superior will thrill you with its wilderness beauty. For the outdoor adventurer, the 3 state parks located within 9 miles of the house will amaze you with an historic cliff-top lighthouse at Split Rock, towering waterfalls at Gooseberry and Tettegouche, rock climbing on Shovel Point and Palisade Head, kayaking at all the parks, bicycling on the Gitchi-Gammi Trail (top of our driveway) and shopping and dining within 10 minutes at Castle Danger, Beaver Bay and Silver Bay. You'll also be within an hour of Grand Marais, where you'll find dozens of restaurants and shops as well as access to the Gunflint Trail, and you'll be a half hour from Two Harbors with its giant ore docks, lighthouse, shopping and dining. For downhill skiers, you'll be 40 minutes from Lutsen Mountains ski resort and 1 hour from Spirit Mountain. Want to play a round of golf? You're 40 miles from Superior National Golf Course. You can even charter a Lake Superior fishing expedition out of Silver Bay Marina (5 miles away), rent snowmobiles from Beaver Bay Sports, or rent a boat for small lake fishing on Lax Lake nearby. Bikes, canoes and kayaks are available from local outfitters as well.

This four-bedroom home features a spacious living and dining room area with beautiful Lake Superior views, a gas fireplace, 2 queen-sized beds, 2 doubles beds and a crib. The comfortably appointed kitchen offers the chef in you two ovens, a center island with new countertop, sink and dishwasher and a breakfast nook with a bay window. Downstairs, you'll find the master bedroom and a full bathroom with new tile, tub and shower surround. Upstairs, there are three comfortable bedrooms with a half bathroom.

Two decks, one with a screen house in the summer months, offer outdoor dining, a propane grill and a wildflower garden. Enjoy the lake from the log swing in the yard or from the seawall on the dramatic shoreline.

Why Rick & Kris Cawood chose Minnesota

With a long family tradition of vacationing on the north shore, we were camping at Temperance State Park in the summer of 2000. We spent a rainy day exploring homes for sale. As soon as we drove down the driveway and saw four foot waves crashing on the shore during the storm, we knew this was a special place. One of the few family homes on the north shore with a comfortable sized lawn as well a s a rugged, natural lakeshore, Lupine Lodge was neither too big nor too small. From the seawall, to the outdoor decks to the lake views from every room, we never had to think about what we wanted 'to do.' Just being there together has always been a perfect getaway as a couple, as a family or with a group of friends.

What makes this house unique

With three spectacular state parks less than ten minutes away, access to excellent dining nearby, the peace of the lake, the beauty of the north woods and the rich history of the north shore, there's a terrific balance for those seeking the thrill of outdoor adventures, the relaxation of watching the waves crash on the shore or the peace of an evening with a home-cooked meal by the fire.

Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO, and the Lupine Lodge has set the bar very high. We found the location to be great for all that our family wanted to do. The house itself felt like home. It was large enough for everyone to have their own space. Next time we will prepare more meals at the house. Although, a shout out to Betty's Pies at Two Harbors & Jimmy's Pizza in Silver Bay. A bonfire every evening, within 20 feet of Lake Superior, was my our personal highlight.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is right on the lake, it has beautiful views! We had fun having a campfire right down by the lake.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive feedback! Campfires down by the seawall on the lakeshore are one of our favorite things to enjoy as a family. The concrete deck makes a comfortable place to pull up lawn chairs and enjoy a view of the constellations uninterrupted by city lights. With a clear night, we love seeing the red flashes of the lighthouses on the Apostle Islands as well as the moving strings of lights on the ore ships. Hope to see you back soon!

Beautiful location!

  • 4 of 5

We were in MN earlier this month for my niece's wedding in Duluth. As I looked for accommodations for 7 adults I came across the listing for Lupine Lodge on Lake Superior. It was the perfect fit with four bedrooms and 1.5 baths. There was plenty of space for everyone to relax and enjoy the area. There were boardgames, cards and books. The home even had a deck, which was the perfect setting for Yoga each morning while enjoying the beautiful views of the lake and listening to the birds chirping. We also enjoyed visiting nearby Split Rock Lighthouse State Park and Gooseberry Falls State Park. If you're looking for a home away from home this is the place for you! Thank you, Rick and Kris! :)
