Property description

Nestled in the sunny woods with an adjoining private beach on East Bay, Enswell Cabin has easy walking access to the warm bay for swimming and canoeing, large open blueberry picking areas in Whiskey Jack Wildlife Refuge and School Forest. East Bay is now a small lake holding huge northern pike and walleye. The nearby Sucker River is a major steelhead and brook trout stream.

The cabin was designed according to ancient Indian principals for sacred architecture (called Stahpatya Ved) to enhance the experience of peace, meditation and attunement with Nature. The owners and builders are life-long teachers and practitioners of Transcendental Meditation. The cabin is carefully aligned so that light flows through the building from all four cardinal directions. Each room was designed so that the activities happening there would be in optimal alignment with natural earth forces to promote life, health and happiness.

Relax in front of the beautiful living room hearth built of natural Superior stone (the futon chairs and coach all convert to beds for slumber parties in front of the fire.) Enjoy meals in the cozy eat-in kitchen, dining table, or in the adjoining screened-in eating porch.

There are four primary sleeping areas - two complete bedrooms downstairs and two sleeping areas in the loft (kids will especially love the hobbit-like sleeping nook with huge tree root entrance.) Both floors have complete bathrooms (a fantastic large shower head downstairs and traditional clawfoot tub upstairs for soaking after a day at the beach). The tankless water heater never runs out of hot water.

In addition to the fully equipped office with high speed wifi, and a meditation nook upstairs, there are two large, upper decks for sunbathing and sleeping. The owners encourage you to try their special all-screen tents with thick, custom foam mattresses for an unforgettable night under the stars and, if you are lucky, the aurora borealis.

All in all, Enswell cabin offers the best of Grand Marais, all within an easy walk. Located in School Forest just six miles from town.

The owners request that there be no smoking or pets indoors, to preserve furniture and the atmosphere.
