                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We enjoy this lake and its convenient distance from Duluth- only a half hour drive from our home near Lake Superior. It is also very close to the water's edge and is especially nice for fishing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, paddle/peddle boating, etc. I was born and raised in this area and have come to appreciate the ease in getting to the North Shore and to the Downtown Duluth areas.

                  Why the Owner Chose Duluth:
                  We usually have family get-togethers and this offers a comfortable gathering place for adults and children- especially from the large deck that is close to the water's edge. Especially nice to have the extra beds and full bath in the log cabin that is next door to the main dwelling (50 feet away). There is a very gentle slope towards the lake which allows one to launch a boat off alongside the dock as well as ideal for swimming, water skiing, or boating.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  It's wonderful to enjoy the quiet, relax on the dock while swishing your feet in the water, nice to see children and adults playing in the water while grilling on the deck, or paddle a boat around the lake, water ski, canoe, etc.
