Silver Bay cabin description

The Palisade Log Cabin on the north shore of Lake Superior is located just off Highway 61, one mile east of Silver Bay. It is about a half mile through heavily wooded lots to the 35-year old secluded and authentic log cabin. The cabin sits on 2.6 acres of private land and has more than 460 feet of high rugged Lake Superior shoreline.

There are incredible views to the north of the Palisade Head Cliffs. These cliffs reach 350 feet high and are a favorite of rock climbers. You can hear the waves of the lake crashing against the ledge rock cliffs just 70 feet from the cabin. The sunrises over the lake are spectacular; in the evening you might be able to view the northern lights.

We installed a new geothermal heating system in October 2012 which should keep the cabin warm and cozy all winter long. Enjoy the peace and solitude of the whispering pines and birch while watching a bald eagle flying above. You can read a book or play cards/games near the cabin’s warm wood stove. Outside you can toast marshmallows at the fire pit or play horseshoes. Search for Thomsonites, agates, crystals, cobblestones, or driftwood. Go berry picking or view colorful spring wild flowers and brilliant fall foliage.

Drive the Highway 61/Superior National Forest Scenic Byway and visit the beautiful Minnesota state parks nearby (see map). Hike on The Superior Hiking Trail that runs from Two Harbors to the Canadian border. Ride your bike on the Gitche Gami Bike Trail that runs along Highway 61. Snowmobile on the North Shore State Snowmobiling Trail or drive an ATV on designated ATV trails from Duluth to Grand Portage. Try cross-country skiing on the North Shore Mountain Cross Country Ski Trail. Visit Lutsen Mountains ski resort 36 miles from the cabin.

In the summer you can go to two nearby beautiful sandy beaches which are part of Tettegouche State Park (ask for directions). Take a charter boat tour or fishing trip out of the Silver Bay Marina that is 3.5 miles to the southwest. If you're adventurous, you can go kayaking/canoeing in the cove.

Watch for giant iron ore carriers on Lake Superior, they depart from Silver Bay and head east to Cleveland. Look for wildlife around the cabin and you may see eagle, deer, moose, bear, fox, wolf, and beaver. If you don’t feel like cooking, dine at a variety of fine nearby restaurants (Lemon Wolf, Northern Lights, The Crossings, and Cove Point Lodge in Beaver Bay; Our House in Finland; The Blue Fin in Tofte).

The Palisade Log Cabin is in close proximity to all activities listed here, most within just a few miles. Most important, take time to enjoy a classic log cabin experience on the North Shore!

                      Silver Bay is midway between Duluth (55 miles to the southwest) and Grand Marais (55 miles to the northeast). It is a great location to see all the beauty of the North Shore of Lake Superior.

                      Minnesota state parks nearby include Gooseberry Falls, Split Rock Light House, Tettegouche, George Crosby Manitou, and Temperance River. The Palisade Head just northwest offers great views of the lake. Also nearby is the Superior National Forest and the Superior Hiking Trail.

                       

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About: Harold and Rae Piepho manage the cabin. The Piepho's have lived on the North Shore for many years and have extensive knowledge of the area. Mark & Sarah, the owners, moved to the Twin Cities in 2000 and have gone 'Up North' to visit since. Sarah's parents have had a house in Silver Bay for many years which served as our launching pad to the north shore till we bought this cabin. The people are very nice, the air is fresh, and there is lots to do in the area. We like hiking and there is plenty of this. Also our 2 sons are just starting to fish; what a great place to learn!

                      Why Silver Bay:
                      The north shore of Lake Superior, particularly the stretch along Highway 61 from Duluth to Grand Marais has something for everyone. Silver Bay, which is in right in the middle of this beautiful stretch, is a great place to enjoy the spectacular views of Lake Superior and to visit the many Minnesota State Parks in the area.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      We enjoy everything we describe on our property listing, especially the serenely beautiful views from log cabin. The area is quiet and relaxing but also provides us with opportunities to venture out and explore a wide variety of destinations along the beautiful North Shore!
