Charming Rustic Cottage On Lake Superior

Bedrooms 1
Space 900 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom With Loft, Sleeps 4.

As you walk through the orginal dutch door into the kitchen you will be taken back in time. Built in 1945 by a Norwegin imigrant, this cozy one of a kind cabin will provide a peaceful escape from life's hurried pace. When standing on the deck you will feel you are in the middle of the lake whether you are gazing at the stars or enjoying your breakfast, life slows to an enjoyable pace. One bedroom on the main floor with a queen bed and 2 twin beds in the loft. Beautiful Lake Superior stone fireplace. Bath with tub/shower. Charming kitchen with vintage fridge and gas stove. Gas grill, Keurig coffee maker, microwave.

Not only is the cabin warm, cozy and a great place to escape but the location is fantastic! So many amazing and fun places to check out!! Let your adventure begin in the Boundary Waters. The cabin is located about 25 miles from Sawbill Canoe Outfitters in the Boundary Waters. Let the outfitters plan your day trip to the BWCA. You can leave the cabin after breakfast, enjoy a day of canoeing and portaging in the BWCA and still be back to the cabin to relax on the deck for dinner.

Grand Marais, MN is 15 miles north of our cabin on HWY 61 and was just voted "The Coolest Small Town in America". Check out the great art galleries, festivals, and amazing restaurant. Sven and Ole's Pizza, World's Best Donut Shop and the Angry Trout just to name a few of our favorites!

Like to hike? Choose from Temperance River State Park, (9 miles), Cascade River State Park, (4 miles) or Goosberry Falls State Park (40 miles) all with breath taking waterfalls.

Grand Portage National Monument is worth the hour drive North on HWY 61. You will be taken back in time as you tour the fort and learn from the park staff who are dressed in period attire and explain what life was like at the trading fort at the turn of the 18th century.

Plan a day trip to Isle Royale. This island national park offers spectacular fishing, canoeing, hiking and one of the nation's best parks for spotting wildlife. Moose, foxes, waterfowl and wolves all live on the island.

Bring your bikes to check out the Gitchi-Gami paved bike trail (5 miles to trail, you will want to put bikes on your bike rack as we feel this part of HWY 61 is not safe for bikers.) Once you arrive at the trail, you can bike from Lutsen to Tofte, have lunch and then return for a massage at Lutsen Lodge Spa. (16 miles round trip).

Bring your golf clubs and check out Superior National Golf Course. One round of golf and you will know why Golf Digest rated Superior National #1 in the state of Minnesota. It belongs on every golfer's bucket list. Only 5 miles from the cabin.

Why Lori/Tim chose Minnesota

We looked at a lot of places on the North Shore and nothing felt quite right until we walked into this cabin. We found the cabin cozy, quaint, rustic, and had that "cabin smell" that we love. The view of Lake Superior is breathtaking. We are thankful and excited to share this piece of heaven with you.

A perfect trip back in time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while doing some snowboarding at Lutsen Mountian which is about 5-10min away. The cabin is a lot of fun. The old windows, doors, refrigerator, open fire place, and lack of a TV takes you on a trip back in time. Really gives you a chance to simply enjoy what the north shore really has to offer. Peace and quiet and the beautiful lake superior. Take a look under the rug in front of the front door! Nice surprise. You can really tell this place had a lot of love when build and over the years.

Cozy and Quaint Cottage Makes for Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We have spent time along the North Shore in every season but winter. After the stay at Lori and Tim’s this may be our new favorite time to be up there! This cabin is a perfect location in every sense. It is close to great snowshoeing, convenient to both the village of Lutsen and town of Grand Marais, AND has the most amazing views of Lake Superior. We loved hearing the waves crash in as this cabin is situated just feet from the shore. The cabin is small, but was perfect for what we needed. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals which we took advantage of frequently during our stay. The fireplace was the quintessential focal point of the living space and we spent our evenings cozied up as the fired crackled. Lori was responsive to all our questions and offered up some great hikes to do on our snowshoes. The snowshoe trails along Lake Agnes were spectacular and the overlook of Caribou Lake was breathtaking. We greatly enjoyed our stay at Cedar Ridge!

Simple, secluded, cozy cabin right on the water, perfect prescription for R&R.

  • 5 of 5

We were looking to get back to the North Shore as we've had an absence from regular fall visits for many years. Found this small, quaint cabin right on the lake and booked it. Great location for fall exploring and we took advantage of many trails nearby and hiked the area. Short jaunt to Lutsen as well as Grand Marais for supplies and restaurants although we had most meals on the deck overlooking the lake.

Cozy North Shore Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is very quaint and warm, perfect for a fall vacation. Beds were comfortable, as were living areas. The kitchen is small with an adorable but vintage fridge with limited capacity (and only a tiny freezer box), limited counter space, and no dishwasher. We stayed a week and enjoy cooking/cooked most meals at the cabin, and it made some things challenging. Lori was a great host and very responsive about check-in and replacing a missing item. The outdoor spaces were beautiful, and the spot on the water was perfect. We were really very sad to have to come back home.

Lake Superior

  • 3 of 5

Nice, comfortable, clean cabin. Our bed sheets had been slept in and all the towels were damp. We took everything to Grand Marais Laundry mat. We've rented from VBRO about 8-9 times over last 15 years, dirty bed sheets are nothing new. Matter of fact, we usually take our own sheets just in case. This time we didn't. Oh well. Updated kitchen and bath were nice. Most places the floor is rotting out around the toilet.

Owner's Response: We are not surprised you found Cedar Ridge a, "nice, comfortable, clean cabin". We pride ourselves in meeting all of our guests needs to the best of our ability. We did ask our professional cleaning staff about not changing the sheets for your stay and they assured us that the sheets were changed before your arrival and sheets are changed ON EVERY TURN and we would expect nothing less. If you are finding dirty sheets at other VRBO locations then you should ask the owners to leave the beds unmade with clean sheets folded on the beds so you can be assured they have not been slept in. We are reporting your concern to VRBO regarding other properties as I am sure they would want to know about your concern. Regarding the damp towels, we can assure you that the towels were clean but depending on the time of the year of your stay at Cedar Ridge they may feel damp due to the humidity outside.
