Urban Silent Sports Retreat is a house built in 1908 that is centrally located a mile up from beautiful Lake Superior. This spacious three bedroom, two bathroom house with full unfinished basement and attached garage has plenty of safe storage for your bicycles, Nordic skis, canoe's and kayaks! Basement is set up for waxing your Nordic skis and we have some bikes and Nordic skis available for renters.
If you are looking for posh, planning to party, smoke at all, do drugs or drink excessively, you'll have to find a different place to rent.
If you want a very quiet house in a nice established neighborhood to use as your home base while you paddle the rivers, bike, run, hike or ski the trails of Outdoor Magazine's top outside town, this is your place!
Home, with much of it's original woodwork, is located less than a mile from Chester Bowl and Bagley which have both running and Nordic ski trails. Piedmont, Lester, and Hartley are within a few miles of the home and have Mountain bike trails, running, and Nordic skiing. Spirit Mountain, Jay Cooke State Park, and more are within 30 minutes of the retreat!
Your hosts spend most of their free time on the numerous trails and bodies of water in the area and would love to share their knowledge with you to help you plan your excursions!
