About the property

4 bdrm 5 bath w/ Internet | New Sauna, Kitchen, Grill, Floors | Camp Fire Pit

Long ago, the Ojibwe tribe once inhabited much of this beautiful area and many still live here. In Ojibwe, Aanii means “hello”; We welcome you to this wonderful little place where the past and present dance together in perfect step and a beautiful landscape of trees and rolling green hills commingle with small town life. Happily situated on 10 private acres in the woods just north of Duluth, the Aanii Vacation and Retreat House provides guests a sanctuary from the bustling world. A home that once raised a happy family, now provides others a loving place to reconnect with family and friends. This home features 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, a jacuzzi, brand new sauna, and plenty of space to stretch out. From my family to yours, we hope that your stay provides you with laughter and memories to last a lifetime.

About Sally Shea

Aanii, my name is Sally. I was born on the Iron Range and grew up in a small town north of Minneapolis where I owned and operated a beauty salon for 15 years. Our family moved to Duluth in 1999 and I returned to school in 2002 to get my healthcare degree. I turned our home into a vacation rental a few years ago because I love the privacy and remote setting this home offers.

Sally Shea purchased this house in 1999

Why Sally Shea chose Minnesota

I loved this home because its close to nature and provides many comfortable areas to relax indoor and outdoor. The property is on 10 acres and provides a quiet, comfortable experience for our guests. New hardwood floors make it great for Quilting and Crafting groups as we have rolling office chairs and folding tables to accommodate up to 10 group size. Separate living room with big screen TV, DVD player, Satellite TV and large comfortable leather couch with love seat and lounging chairs. The house has three levels so there is always a quiet space to relax, even with large groups.

What makes this house unique

Sauna room with shower - This was completed in early 2016 and has been a great addition to what we can provide for our guests.

The three decks provide enough space for large group retreats during the day and also a great place to enjoy a peaceful morning cup of coffee.

Camp Fire Area - Seating for 6 - 8 around a cozy camp fire. S'mores anyone?

Canal Park - Restaurants, gift and coffee shops, the board walk on Lake Superior. And be sure to experience the worlds only working Aerial Lift Bridge. Many Beaches and parks are further down after you cross over the bridge.

North Shore Scenic Route - Get a beautiful view of Lake Superior on the scenic route toward Two Harbors.

In the summer months, there are many scenic areas close to the property including Hawks Ridge for an awesome view of Lake Superior, and Seven Bridges Road where you can see many waterfalls and very interesting bridges (which runs to Lester Park and a unique swimming hole called, "the deeps," by the locals.) Great place to see the fall colors and enjoy the summer months.

In the winter months, The John Beargrease dogsled race runs within a few miles of the property. Snowmobile groups will enjoy the proximity of the C. J. Ramstad Minnesota trail which is 2 miles away.

For the Cross Country folks Korkki groomed ski trails are a short distance from the house. After a day in the woods come and warm your bones in the Sauna,a great way to relax and end the day.

Roomy and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Going with 4 out of 5 stars. Place was advertised with air conditioning, sauna and garage. No AC, sauna was out of order and use of the garage was not permitted. Otherwise plenty of space, comfortable bedding and clean which are the important items. Thanks for our family for the entire week!

wedding weekend 7/14-7/16

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 10 adults and 3 kids, enough room for everyone, we really liked the deck off the dining room and the great fire pit. Would love to stay again.

The sauna was not working when we were there which was a bummer. Maybe next time
