"Very lovely view of the lake from the dining room. We had a peaceful time at the cabin--very comfortable and clean. A bonus were the many sizes of life-jackets. Great for my kids as we enjoyed canoeing."

"This was our second Thanksgiving in a row at this town home and we hope to be back for more. Our family has been enjoying Thanksgivings in Lutsen for over a decade - so we can make an honest comparison - and this is a very nice unit. It's large enough for 3 families to comfortably spend 4 nights together. I'd agree that the main level living room is a bit small for a group as large as the home can sleep - as others have noted - but it's no different than any other unit of this style in the complex, so definitely nothing to be concerned with. In general the home is great, always prepared for our stay and the kitchen definitely allows for anything that you might want to whip up - including Thanksgiving dinner for a large group. The views are absolutely wonderful and the location within the complex is very convenient. Caribou Highlands is our favorite resort close to the hill, and being so close to the ski hill itself is another added perk. Whether you're skiing, hiking, relaxing by a fire or visiting all of the fun spots up and down Highway 61, this is a great place stay. Add to that the owner is very friendly and easy to work with as well, which is yet another perk of renting this town home. We'll be back and you should stay here too if your travel plans are bringing you to the Lutsen/Tofte area."

"The location at the end of a point allows for a sweeping view of islands and the sunset. Total immersion in nature with Tower five minutes away. With ample room, this cabin accommodated seven of us ages 23 to 58 perfectly. Bedrooms are situated so early risers do not disturb late sleepers. The kayaks were immediately in the water on arrival. The little fishing boat was perfect for my adult children to take out around the islands and nearby bays where they caught walleye, northerns, and bass. We saw eagles and loons right from the dock with a bench that is perfect for coffee in the morning. The deck over the water is a unique feature that was used as a gathering point to string fishing poles, sketch art, enjoy happy hour and sunset dinners. The kitchen was well appointed. My artist son from NY appreciated the photographs, paintings, and ceramic pieces. We made a backyard fire and s'mores almost every night. Original plans to tour the north shore, Soudan Mine, camp on an island and golf all went undone as everyone was pleasantly content and busy enjoying "cabin life" together. Owner was a pleasure to work with. We hope to be back again!"

"Great cabin with beautiful views of Lake Superior. The cabin is secluded, yet easy to find with Shawn's directions. It was stocked with plenty of firewood and everything we needed. The loft has great views. We used the wood stove a two mornings when it was cool but the heated floor kept it plenty warm in the evenings.
It wasn't really warm enough to make much use of the screened porch, but it's large and would be a much-used space in warmer weather, including as a sleeping porch. The wrap-around deck was a great place to sit and watch the stars and the big ships headed toward Duluth. One nice surprise about the cabin is realizing that Shawn built it - we really enjoyed the books about cabin building and learning how the place came together.
Our late April visit meant nearly empty state parks - and Tettegouche is an amazing place - and so close. We also did day trips to Temperance River and Cascade state parks. We made great use of the book on the shelf with info about great hikes on the North Shore under three miles!
There is a good sized grocery store five miles away in Silver Bay, so no need to bring a lot of food along, you can get what you need nearby.
All in all a very memorable and enjoyable way to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Thanks!"
