LOVE the Highbrow Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second trip to the Highbrow. It's a beautiful home overlooking Lake Superior. There is only one house anywhere close to it, and I've never seen anyone there, so it's incredibly secluded. I love this place. I cannot get enough!

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Setting was gorgeous! The kitchen was wonderful, beds very comfortable. We had a very relaxing time and would go again! Grand Marais is always fun to visit and there are a lot of hiking opportunities in the area with all the State Parks and the Superior Hiking Trail.

Such a gorgeous setting for our annual family and friend gathering! Everything we needed and more was at hand and we thoroughly enjoyed the house. From morning coffee on the deck to evening laughter on the screen porch each of our days at the Highbrow Cabin was perfect. Everyone enjoyed the kitchen amenities and comfortable beds. Will plan another vacation to this cabin for sure!

Very clean, lots of space to spread out or find a quiet corner. Quick response to any questions by Heather. We enjoyed the Northwoods Grille in Silver Bay for our first meal in the area, then kept going back because everyone enjoyed the food & friendly service!

Also used as a luxurious base camp for a day of hiking at local state parks - what a great place to come home, tired and happy!

Incredible views from an amazing cabin

  • 5 of 5

If you've been to the north shore of Lake Superior, you know its beauty and majesty. If you haven't, you're in for a great treat! This cabin is situated 20 feet from a cliff shore overlooking Superior, providing an unrivaled view with the sounds of crashing waves below. The sunrises from the upstairs loft master bedroom are amazing!

Inside, the cabin was clean, well appointed, and well stocked. We had a group of 6 and it held us all comfortably. The kitchen is large and well laid-out, so making meals was a snap. The sauna downstairs was well-reviewed and liked by all! Most of the time was spent on the deck, which has a nice grill and spans the entire back side of the cabin. It's hard to spend any time inside with that view from the comfortable deck that awaits you just out the back door!

Tettegouche State Park is a quick 5 mile trip down the road and offers miles of hiking and more views of the lake. It was a nice side trip to get away from the house for a few hours. Our group arrived stocked with food and supplies, but should you need anything, Silver bay is a 10 minute drive and has all you might need.

Overall we had a great time. Thanks for the opportunity to stay here!

The Highbrow Cabin on the cliff is situated on three acres of beautiful North Shore woods, with 235 feet of breath taking shoreline.

The huge logs that make up the structure provide a cozy cabin feel, but the home is luxurious! Enjoy amazing views of the sun rising over the lake through the floor to ceiling windows; warm up after a day in the woods around the wood burning stove; or take a steam in the newly constructed Sauna! Watch bald eagles soar from the beautiful large deck that overlook Lake Superior and makes you feel as if you’re on top of the world.

The Highbrow Cabin is large enough for most groups, but cozy enough for you and your honey. It has a majestic loft overlooking Lake Superior with a king size bed. On the first floor is another spacious bedroom with two full beds that can be joined to make a king. Downstairs is the third bedroom with another two full beds that can be made into a king. Finally, the great room has a comfy futon that can be pulled into another bed. It sleeps six to eight total. The Highbrow Cabin has two and a half nice, clean bathrooms.

The Highbrow Cabin is perfect for the foodie in your group, as it offers a Viking stove and all the best knives and cookware one could need. For your rainy days or quiet nights enjoy the rec room outfitted with a 52 inch HDTV, DVD library, foosball table, dart board, board game library, and record player.

Other amenities include a propane lit charcoal grill, cozy fire pit with lovely chairs – perfect for making smores and watching the stars, a three season porch with an electric start stove, a basketball hoop and bean bag toss game, and a paved driveway for easy winter access.

The Highbrow Cabin is located just 3.5 miles from the entrance to Tettegouche State Park, a gem of the North Shore with extensive hiking trails! It is conveniently close to Silver Bay where guests will find a grocery store, liquor store, DVD rentals, and restaurants. Just 3.5 hours from the Twin Cities, or 1 hour from Duluth, The Highbrow Cabin is a half hour away from Lutsen Mountain and Superior National Golf Course.
