The Forest Chalet is a beautiful chalet with high end amenities situated in your own piece of tranquil forest. The chalet is a custom built home featuring vaulted ceilings and huge beams that frame a panoramic window wall showcasing the forest and its' wildlife right outside the great room.

You may also want to enjoy the lower level outside fire pit, where you can listen to the evening song of the wildlife whilst toasting marshmallows. Alternatively, you could sit on the loft balcony and relax with a book taking in the peacefulness of your surroundings.

Nice cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the cabin while visiting the North Shore! The cabin was clean and comfortable in a quiet wooded area. We had a couple questions and the owners responded promptly. We would rent it again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property was beautiful and have everything we needed, including the fireplace which we needed in August! We really appreciated all the games and books throughout the house. The kids spent hours playing pool at night. We cooked all of our meals at the house and had plenty of dishes for all of us.

From this house it was easy to get to the Alpine Slide, Sawbill, Grand Marais and Grand Portage. We were close to the Superior Hiking Trail which made for a great afternoon of hiking. At night, we were able to sit out on the balcony and watch for meteors. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to stay there again some day.
