Duluth cabin description

This cabin sits on an ideal piece of private property on a small 80 acre lake only 10' from the waters edge. Sitting on the sofa is like being on a house boat. Summer Lane Cottage is perfectly situated for sunrises and sunsets, with an enclosed screen porch off the deck. The deck faces North, great for Northern Lights viewing on a good night.

After owning our home on the lake 20 years we purchased this property 11 years ago and we have done extensive renovation. New carpet, wall coverings all new furniture were added first. Then an enclosed screen room was added to the deck to enjoy bug free evenings and out door dining. There is a canoe, paddle boat as well as a 24' dock to enjoy the water. 2008 updates include a new shower enclosuer and bathroom fixtures. In 2009 we resided the exterior and added gutters. The kitchen was completely renovated with new counters and cabinets and a new stove and fridge. We continue to add to the property each year and invest back based on our rentals.

A DNR stocked trout lake is 1/2 mile away with a walk in access (google Corona Lake); loons and moose are on and around the lake. 10 miles to the Munger Trial for biking or in-line skating and 13 miles to Jay Cooke State Park for remarkable hiking.

The guests who enjoy it here are looking for a quiet site to read, hike, bike and enjoy a quiet lakeshore experience. The home is tastefully done, with ultra-comfortable furnishings and a complete kitchen to allow the chef in you to come out. Our first year in VRBO we were overwhelmed by inquiries and we have enjoyed 100% customer satisfaction.

A massage studio(The Body Connection in Cloquet) and fitness center(Park Ave. Fitness) are just 10 miles away. Books, music, and regional art work fill this home. The first guest who rented it for a weekend stayed 3 weeks. Duluth has the fifth oldest children's museum in the nation and in summer of 2014 it will feature a dinosaur exhibit sure to delight all ages.

The host welcomes iTravex members inquiries with incentives provided.

              Children's Museum; Lakewalk in Duluth 30 mi. away, much to see and do within 100 miles up the north shore of Lake Superior. Many state parks are located within 50 miles of this location, in every direction. Jay Cooke is closest and has a bike/rollerblade trail that connects to Duluth and is located on the Munger Trail which goes all the way to St. Paul. Duluth is the regional port for Lake Superior and it has its own summer air conditioning, lots of hiking, shopping and places to enjoy there. If you prefer, look up the MN DNR website for state parks, there are at least 4 within 30 miles and another 5 within 50 miles, great day trips, especially along the lake. Jay Cooke State Park is a place that you can spend 2-3 days hiking and enjoying and it is only 13 miles away.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: My wife and I live 3 driveways down. We purchased our property about 30 years ago as a sesonal home, moved away and came back to make it our permenant residence. We had a chance to purchase this rental property and decided lakeshore was a good investment and it expanded our ability to entertain during the summer months. I work for a children's museum in Duluth and my wife works at the University. The drive is a good time for us to let go of the day and to reconnect. Often when we enter the drive our saying is 'we live here!' Every season someone asks to buy Summer Lane Cottage, which affirms our decision to invest in the property. We keep thinking we will sell someday, but then we enjoy meeting guests from all over the country and beyond and it gives us space for expanding families of relatives who want to visit in the summer. The work of having a rental is offset by the joy of meeting so many folks who truly enjoy this location. We love the setting and we enjoy sharing it. VRBO has made ownership and rental so easy, after two years of 'going it on our own' we signed on to VRBO and have had very few open nights since.

              Why the Owner Chose Duluth:
              We had a chance and went for it. The investment made sense, it needed remodeling and we felt up to the challenge and we hoped it would pay off. It is the nicest piece of property on the lakeshore and we are delighted we made the right decision.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              A small lake with only 15 cabins, all located on one side provides a very quiet and private setting. It is close to a lot of state parks, Duluth and all the North Shore has to offer. The privacy of the property and the fun of exploring an area delights most.
