2 The new Gitchi-Gami bike trail is 1/3 of a mile down the hill.

Who needs the hassles and expense of flying when you can drive someplace spectacular in just a few hours? Hop in the car and head 'up north', it's a beautiful drive and there's no extra charge for your luggage!

Hundreds of miles of spectacular hiking trails criss cross the forests and mountains. Mountain biking and horseback riding are available at the top of the hill. Kids of all ages will love the Alpine Slide just up the road. Ride the Gondola to the top of Moose Mountain and have lunch on the deck of the chalet, it's a spectacular view! Golfers, Superior National Golf course offers 27 holes of beautiful scenery and challenging golf right across Ski Hill Road. Bikers, the newest section of the Gitchi-Gami State trail just opened 1/4 of a mile down Ski Hill Road. Enjoy a smooth ride all the way to Schroeder even passing over the waterfalls of Temperance River Park.

Enjoy a charming 3 bedroom, 2 bath private home as your home base in this recreational paradise. Lutsen's ski hills are just 1/2 a mile up Ski Hill Road, you can see the ski runs from the master bedroom window. This is the best skiing in Midwest! Cross country ski, snowshoe or take dog sled and sleigh rides along Lake Superior at nearby Lutsen Resort. Miles of scenic snowmobile trails through beautiful forests are nearby and easily accessible. Big news! A new high speed chair lift called 'Caribou Express' is now operational , it cuts lift time from 10 minutes to 3 1/2 minutes!

Our home was professionally decorated and it's very comfortably furnished. The master bedroom suite offers a private retreat after a hard day at play. There's a whirlpool for two and a private bath and every window offers a beautiful view of mountains, trees or Lake Superior.

Set in the trees on with no buildings behind it to block the view. Every window that faces the lake has a view of the lake as does the covered deck and screen porch. There's a fire ring to gather around for evenings under the stars and let me tell you, they are spectacular here. It's the ideal vacation home for families and friends. Close to everything you love about the north shore, but away from the crowded resorts.

More big news, the Caribou Express high speed chair lift will be installed for the 2013/14 ski season!

Coming soon! North Shore Winery and micro brewery is being built across from our home. We will add an update here when it opens.

Enjoy a sleigh ride, sled dog ride, cross country skiing, or snowshoeing along Lake Superior's North Shore at Lutsen Resort less than 1/2 a mile away. Sleigh rides are also available at Cascade Lodge.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: If you have never tried snowshoeing, you don't know what you are missing! We are often the only people out on the trails and we can go anywhere we can hike, no need for a groomed trail. The beauty of the area is always there but there's something really special about seeing it all coated in snow. The bare trees allow for views you don't see in the summer. Strap on some snowshoes on your next winter trip and see for yourself, it's amazing!

Why the Owner Chose Lutsen:
We go to the north shore as often as we can, sometimes several times a year. We finally decided owning a home 'up north' made sense for us so we bought a vacation home in Lutsen. Of all the areas along the north shore, Lutsen has the most activities nearby making it a great place to go for an active vacation. We love to hike, snowshoe, golf and of course, watch the 'big lake', all of which we can do within 1/2 a mile of our home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our home is one of only 12 homes that share 20 acres, it's not part of a resort so it's quiet and private but still really close to everything we love to do in Lutsen. We appreciate being out on our screen porch or deck and seeing trees and the lake, not other buildings. What made us fall in love with it is the decor. The home was built in 2001 and decorated right after September 11th so the builder's professional decorators chose a red and white and blue color scheme, it's very colorful and so unique. When we say it's cute, it really is, people love staying here.
