  • Super location - close to downtown

    "We happened to get lucky and get the last two days they had open for the summer. It's a great location with offstreet parking, generous living space if you wanted to host a gathering (fully stocked kitchen). Brought back lots of memories as I lived two blocks down from the Manor House in the 70's."

  • 2nd Annual Girls Weekend - Main level and Studio Rented

    "My girl friends and I stayed at the Bon Aire this past weekend. We had stayed here once before, and we knew then that we would be back. Being UMD alums, we have an affinity for Lake Superior, and Bon Aire quenches that need. The beautifully decorated home sits right on a cliff overlooking the beautiful water of Lake Superior. Despite being a cold winter, the lake is not frozen, so we could sit outside and listen to the waves crash. There is plenty of outdoor seating, a deck, and an outdoor firepit, if that is your cup of tea. Because we had 5 girls with us on this trip, we opted to inquire about the studio upstairs. The reasoning behind this was really two-fold. 1) So we'd all be a bit more comfortable for sleeping, as the upstairs has another bed. and 2) we were so curious to know what was up there, because we had seen the door before! (curiosity never dies, right?). So after talking to the owner, who is incredibly personable and easy to connect with, we booked the studio. When we arrived at the Bon Aire, the main level was like coming home. We knew where the rooms were and how the layout was. It felt good to be familiar. Then we got to explore the upstairs! And wow! We were so pleased with it. It's bright and the view is breath taking. I cannot say enough about the natural light. Plus there is a little deck, which is really the roof that can be used as a viewing area. It's really perfect. The space had a flat screen tv, vcr and dvd player, and I believe it was connected to the satellite (though I never watched tv). The wifi was also strong upstairs too. The space had a table for two, a writing desk, a very comfortable sofa, and a double bed. Be careful on the double bed though; it's in the slanted part of the roof, so if you were to sit up too fast, you could possibly hit your head. I never did actually did this while sleeping up there, but I could totally see it as a potential. The studio also has a bathroom with a pedestal sink, toilet, and a tub. The tub is deep and also within the area of the house where the roof slants down. Because of this, the tub is a true tub, which you must sit, despite there being a movable shower hood on a metal house. The main level has a shower, but because I wanted to full studio experience, I tried out the upstair's tub. I was pleasantly surprised;t he bath was great! Beyond this, the studio has a small kitchen with everything you need too. The space is bright and beautiful. Perfect add."

  • Best Place to Stay on the North Shore - Right Here!

    "Stayed here during the Beargrease sled dog marathon, late January. We had a great stay in a very well built log home, filled with wonderful character and a phenomenal setting overlooking the lake. Cozy and relaxing after long days of skiing with an authentic sauna the perfect "Finnish" to our days. Shawn (owner/builder) is great to work with - no worries or concerns - thanks for opening your door!"

  • Wonderful Winter Retreat

    "We chose the house for its proximity to the north shore and access to winter activities. We planned to downhill and cross country ski as well as snowmobile. Due to the lack of snow, we skied at Spirit Mountain and had a wonderful time. Our group was 3 adults and 6 children ages 16-11. The kitchen and dining area worked perfectly and had plenty of dishes and cooking utensils. The owners really thought about what people would need. With a dishwasher and washer and dryer (soaps provided) it makes it easy to take care of cleaning up. With sleeping areas on 3 floors we were able to arrange sleeping for all comfortably and with privacy. While the weather was cold and windy at night we were cozy inside. The owners were accessible and helpful and just a phone call away. It was a wonderful place to get away. We are fans of the north shore and would love to return to explore summer activities and have a chance to enjoy the deck and beautiful property."
