About Jo Ebbert

If you have never tried snowshoeing, you don't know what you are missing! We are often the only people out on the trails and we can go anywhere we can hike, no need for a groomed trail. The beauty of the area is always there but there's something really special about seeing it all coated in snow. The bare trees allow for views you don't see in the summer. Strap on some snowshoes on your next winter trip and see for yourself, it's amazing!

Jo Ebbert purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Jo Ebbert chose Lutsen

We go to the north shore as often as we can, sometimes several times a year. We finally decided owning a home 'up north' made sense for us so we bought a vacation home in Lutsen. Of all the areas along the north shore, Lutsen has the most activities nearby making it a great place to go for an active vacation. We love to hike, snowshoe, golf and of course, watch the 'big lake', all of which we can do within 1/2 a mile of our home.

What makes this cabin unique

Our home is one of only 12 homes that share 20 acres, it's not part of a resort so it's quiet and private but still really close to everything we love to do in Lutsen. We appreciate being out on our screen porch or deck and seeing trees and the lake, not other buildings. What made us fall in love with it is the decor. The home was built in 2001 and decorated right after September 11th so the builder's professional decorators chose a red and white and blue color scheme, it's very colorful and so unique. When we say it's cute, it really is, people love staying here.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We have returned to Kansas and it is over 100 here today, not the beautiful Minnesota weather we have

grown used to this last week. A wonderful stay was had by all and hopefully, we will get to return sometime in the future.

Thank you for sharing your cozy cabin with us. We will be sure to pass the info to any of our friends who may be heading your way.

Thanks again,

Perfect Cabin well equipped and Perfect Location to enjoy Lutsen!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Lutsen Solitude in September 2017. It was our annual hiking trip up North on the Superior Hiking Trail and first time we didn't stay at one of the resorts. We loved the cabin! The beds were super comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The location was perfect and made hiking from Oberg Mountain to Caribou Trail super accessible. There is also a new winery right next store which was an added bonus that we enjoyed every afternoon. Highly recommend this property and the owners were a joy to work with!

Owner's Response: We are so happy your first stay away from a resort was wonderful, you'll be sold on booking a home from now on. We used to stay at resorts too but we really wanted to have a home where we could invite friends and family to join us and have great gathering space inside and out. Now with the winery next door, guests have another gathering place they can walk to and from, it's fabulous! The hiking is beautiful around Lutsen and the biking trail at the bottom of Ski Hill Road makes it a great biking destination too. We look forward to your return, come in winter if you ski or snowshoe, our favorite way to pass winter months is incredible here, it's a great location in every season.

Warm, cozy stay for our family on a cold New Year's weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our two adult children, along with their significant others, braved three days of skiing at Lutsen in sub-zero weather. Fun can be had at this warm, cozy cabin, despite low temperatures hitting -30! Lutsen resort is a short one minute drive up the hill, so the convenience is ideal. The size was perfect for our family of 6. There is enough room to give everyone their space and still feel warm around the fireplace playing games. Everything you expect is just as it shows in the pictures and detailed written instructions leaves no guess work. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you enjoyed ringing in the new year in our home. You were brave, thankfully -30 isn't very unusual. It sounds like you all made some wonderful memories between surviving "extreme skiing" and family games in front of the fire. We hope you can return when we're not in a Polar Vortex, it's great fun in every season. Happy New Year to you all.
