Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom + loft which accomodates 2-small children (sleeps 6 max)

Secluded single family home on 40 heavily wooded acres...yet only 10-min from the scenic North Shore and only 20-min to downtown Duluth! The starry nights are spectacular away from the city lights and the sights & sounds of wildlife are everywhere.

The Space

Our single level 30' x 40' guest home (built in '06) has an open floor plan. The great room measures 18' x 30' and has a spacious kitchen and dining area on one side with the living room/TV viewing area on the other. The two bedrooms are located at the front of the house...one has a queen bed and the other a double with the latter room also having a loft directly overhead... which is ideal for two children... sleeping bags required. The back of the house has a fairly large bathroom which doubles as the utility room. The washer and dryer are located here, which guests are welcome to use.

Guest Access

A fully functional wood burning stove is centrally located in the great room. Guests are welcome to use it...my wife & I heated this home for 6-years almost exclusively with wood. Firewood is provided at no charge. As a back-up, there are individual electric wall heaters (with individual thermostats) in each room.

Interaction with Guests

My wife & I are in the midst of finishing our retirement home which is located in the middle of our 40-acres, so we are only a 5-minute walk up the driveway should guests have questions or need our assistance in anyway.

The Neighborhood

Breathtaking views along the shore of Lake Superior are just 10-minutes away! Stroll along the beach or bike, roller blade, jog or walk along dedicated paved pathways. The Lakeside residential community is only 5-minutes further where you’ll find an awesome city park, 27 hole golf course, craft shops, bakery, grocery store, gas stations as well as a convenient place to pick up subs, pizzas, etc.

Closer to home, guests are welcome to hike along the walking trails that we've cleared on our private 40-acres. Be sure to check out the narrow county logging road that runs along the east side of our property for a quiet stroll. Moreover, wild raspberries are often plentiful along the trails in late July/early August and wild hazelnuts are ready for picking in late August….provided you get to them before the squirrels and deer do! The north side of our property is peppered with numerous Maples so during Sept/Oct, a walk through the woods becomes exceptionally brilliant with all of the Fall colors!

Guests are also encouraged to simply sit back, relax and enjoy the campfire area. (campfire wood is provided at no charge.) I personally never get tired of listening to the sounds of the night accompanied by a spectacular star lit sky… all from a front row seat in this country setting!

Getting around

While a bike ride to Lake Superior is not out of the question...particularly since it is mostly downhill, the return trip could be a real bear! We're in the country, so personal transportation is necessary!

Beautiful and peaceful Northshore lodging

  • 5 of 5

Really beautiful and peaceful setting, just minutes away from Lake Superior. We enjoyed our stay and spent time in Duluth, Two Harbors and the state parks along the shore. Really relaxing visit.

Peaceful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Woodsy Lodging is the perfect place to “get away from it all” while still having all of the amenities and activities that one could want. Janice and Royal have created a cozy place to relax and spend time with friends and family or recharge quietly as we just did. It rained the entire time that we were there and we didn’t even care! If one gets cabin fever, there is always the beautiful screen house in which to spend time and have a change of scenery or a covered porch roof with comfy swivel chairs and loungers. The attention to detail is evident everywhere one looks. You will not be disappointed if you are fortunate enough to stay there.

Quiet, cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. The cabin is very comfortable and quiet, yet close enough to Duluth proper and all the enticements of the north shore. It comes well stocked so if you've forgotten something, chances are good that the cabin has it. Would stay here again.
