Nestled on the shore of Lake Superior & on the edge of Cascade River State Park
The WoodSong Cabin is perched on both the edge of Lake Superior, as well as the edge of the open forest of Cascade River State Park. Completely rebuilt in 2016, this artisan crafted cabin was spared no expense in its attention to detail. From the overall design, down to the hand forged iron work, painstaking care was given to every square inch. The result is something more akin to a crafted wood sculpture than a mere dwelling.
Nestled along the bank of Lake Superior's rugged coastline, right at the very end of Cascade Beach Road, WoodSong is situated almost exactly between Lutsen and Grand Marais - easy 10 minute drives in either direction. A spacious main room is built around the granite-faced, wood burning fire place - with french door that opens directly out to the lake. Each of its two bedrooms has it's own, private spa-like bath, complete with deep soaking tub. With the use of the deluxe sleeper-sofa in the main room, this cabin can comfortably accommodate 6.
Outside, the charm is in full force... Not only is WoodSong patio a stone's throw from Lake Superiors lapping waves, it has a lake side covered porch. Repurposed from an original, historic North Shore Fish House - one of the few that remain still standing from that bygone era - time with coffee, wine and friends in the WoodSong Fish House is about as close to North Shore ecstasy as it gets!

About Becky Katzenmeier
With both of us native to Kansas, we made our first foray to the Northwoods in 1994, shortly after being newly married. Little did we know that initial 5 night paddling trip, launched from the end of the Gunflint Trail outside of Grand Marais, would lead to a lifetime of pursuing the Northwoods and everything it represents. We now own and operate a Tallgrass Prairie retreat & preserve in the Flint Hills of Kansas, and we love the gentle beauty of the prairie - a sublime beauty the soaks slowly into your soul rather than a dramatic beauty that hits you upside the head! We find the Northwoods to be similar in that regard. Whether the quiet lapping of waves again a rock shore, the distant haunting call of a loon, the silent rise of a full moon over Lake Superior, or the crackle of a wood fire on a frigid snowy night, we find the essence of the Northwoods to invigorate our hearts and spirits like nowhere else. We can't think of anything more fulfilling than sharing our little piece of the North with guests in hope that it will be as life-giving to them as it is to us. Welcome to WoodSong Cabin!

Amazing place to stay!
Having relatives in northern Minnesota I have traveled and stayed in this area many times. This is by far the BEST place we have ever been to. Becky is wonderful to work with. The cabin is beautiful! We can't wait to stay here again.
Beautifully set up.
No complaints. Stunning views in a quiet setting!!!
Great location. Beautiful cabin on shores of Lake Superior.
Enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be coming back!
Cozy lakeside cabin ...
Perfect location, spectacular view. Gorgeous cabin. Only drawback, for us - beds. We sleep in a king sized bed and two queen beds in cabin that were very firm and uncomfortable for us - we had to sleep in seperate rooms to " stretch out ." A lot of tossing and turning for each of us and that was a challenge, we usually sleep easily. It just seemed as though mattresses did not have springs ... that is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5. Becky so easy to book with, quick responses and helped us last minute to change our arrival/departure dates due to a schedule conflict with us. Everything in cabin clearly labeled, guest book filled with instructions and recommendations ... go to Angry Trout, ate there twice! Thank you Becky ... your home is amazing!
