About the Property

Timberframe Chalet, 4 bedrooms, 3 bath, Sleeps 12, FREE Wi-Fi & FIREWOOD*

Stunning post and beam chalet located in your own forest with upper-end amenities. This custom built home features vaulted ceilings and huge beams that frame a panoramic window wall of glass showcasing the forest and wildlife right outside the great room. Spend your evenings in this relaxing retreat warming your feet by the stone fireplace, and unwinding from the day’s activities. We supply free WiFi and *one rack of firewood.

On the main level you'll find a warm and cozy four season porch with radiant floor heat, comfy couches, one that features a pull out queen-size bed and french doors for privacy. This room is the perfect place to relax with your morning coffee and read your favorite book. Don't be surprised to look up and find a moose or wolf gazing up at you! The lower level features a 42” flat screen satellite TV with a surround sound system and plenty of seating for watching your favorite movies. There is also a full size pool table and game table for your enjoyment, and right outside you’ll find an inviting firepit for roasting marshmallows in the evenings.

Animals and birds are all around in this remote setting that is only five minutes from Lutsen Mountain and centrally located to the areas best hiking and snowmobile trails, waterfalls, state parks and fishing lakes. Cozy luxury is what this home is all about!
