Beaver Bay townhome description

Top ten reasons to choose our home for your trip 'up north'

10 Within 10 miles of 3 of Minnesota's most popular state parks
9 Everyone loves it - all five star reviews!
8 Walk to several excellent local restaurants
7 Sunrises over the lake with coffee on the deck
6 Oh so comfortable beds and pillows, play hard, sleep well!
5 Whirlpool tub for two (most Windsong units only have a tub for one)
4 Pool building and picnic area is right across the driveway.
3 Front door parking, no trudging through the parking lot with suitcases.
2 Quiet town home community, not a busy, noisy resort.
1 Location! Closer to the lake than most Windsong rentals.

Privately owned town home overlooking Lake Superior. Beautifully furnished and decorated, it's a very comfortable home to return to after a hard day at play on the north shore. A full wall of windows face the lake, enjoy the sights and sounds of this incredible body of water just feet away.

Windsong is a small lakeside town home community, not a resort. Enjoy the amenities of an upscale resort without the noise and crowds. Indoor Heated pool, (open seasonally), a year around sauna, charcoal grill, picnic tables and firepit are across the driveway.

Gitchi-Gami State Trail is at the top of Windsong Drive, walk or ride bikes to Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls. Palisade Head and Tettegouche State Park are a few miles up 61. A spur trail from Cove Point offers access to the Superior Hiking Trail, hike for miles through forests, along ridges, rivers, waterfalls and lakes. What an amazing place in every season, come explore by day and relax in style and comfort at night.

Winter guests enjoy miles and miles of nearby cross country and snowmobile trails. The midwest's best downhill skiing is just 40 minutes away at Lutsen. Gooseberry Falls park and Split Rock both have beautiful, groomed cross country ski trails, we use them to snowshoe too. There's nothing like spending time on foot, skis or snowshoes in the woods in winter. It's good for your body, mind and soul.

Walk to nearby restaurants: Crossings Bar & Grille, Northern Lights, Lemon Wolf Cafe, Blue Anchor, Cove Point Lodge, Camp 61 and The Big Dipper Ice cream shop which open seasonally. You'll love how conveniently located our home is, come play!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2005

          About the owner: We love the North Shore any time of year but much to our surprise, Winter is our favorite! We are snowshoers and we find that we are often the only ones on the trails, LOVE the solitude! We marvel at how the view changes when the foliage is gone. It's incredibly beautiful, we hope you'll try it on one of your visits. You can rent snowshoes at Beaver Bay Sports 2 miles away.

          Why the Owner Chose Beaver Bay:
          Beaver Bay is easy to get to from the Twin Cities and it's a beautiful drive. Of course the view of Lake Superior was a huge draw for us, it's hard to believe it's a lake! Listening to the waves hit the rocks, watching the sun come up over the lake, stargazing over a pitch black lake, it's a soul refreshing place.

          The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
          This home is such a wonderful retreat, when we step inside, the weight of the world lifts off. We really enjoy the proximity to so many incredible State Parks. Gooseberry Falls, Split Rock and Tettegouche are all within 10 miles. The Superior Hiking Trail and state park trails take you through forests, along rivers, past waterfalls, to inland lakes and along Lake Superior. If you prefer a stroll or bike ride to a hike, you can walk or bike ride for miles along the shore on the Gitchi-Gami State Trail at the top of Windsong Drive. Golfers, enjoy Lutsen's Superior National Golf course 27 holes of spectacular golf just 40 minutes away. The best downhill sking and snowboarding in the Midwest is also 40 minutes away at Lutsen Mountains. We never get tired of this place.
