About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-15)

Just 3 miles from City of Duluth, 3/4 mile from Lake Superior, near many rivers, & sight seeing areas along the North Shore.

Relax and enjoy close proximity to the North Shore & its sightseeing and yet only a few minutes from the City of Duluth! You will appreciate the rustic natural wood timbers, stone/tile & the heart of an authentic log cabin. The living room has a Danish wood burning soapstone fireplace. The formal dining room has 2 tables that will seat up to 12 people with the option of heated tiled floor. The main floor also has a bedroom and hand crafted stone tiled bathroom. All 3 levels each have a bath & bedroom(s). Master bedroom offers a queen bed and a guest bedroom suite which also has a queen size bed (accessed w/french doors from master bedroom). The lower level walkout has 3 bedrooms (2 queens & a king). The exterior features a large covered deck with grill and tables for dining and looks out onto the private property surrounded by trees. The property has a gentle slope & children enjoy sledding in the winter. You may see deer on the property or evidence of them frolicking in the yard while you were out skiing or sightseeing.

The property is not located on Lake Superior, but is less than a mile from the McQuade Safe Harbor/Boat launch on Lake Superior.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We have enjoyed the journey of transforming an authentic log cabin & crafting a creative 4 bedroom, 3 bath timber home. We have used natural wood, timbers, stone, and tile together to create a 'natural living environment'.

Why the Owner Chose Duluth, MN, USA:
We built it with a vision of bringing together a warm environment. Situated in a tranquil & natural setting surrounded by trees, seasonal stream, with lots of natural products used in the building process- stone, tile, hand crafted plaster and reclaimed fir timbers.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The large open and covered deck area has 2+ picnic tables and some chairs for outside dining, propane grill, and a beautiful view of the natural environment! Enjoy the peaceful setting of nature, seasonal meandering stream around the property, lots of nature, and only a few skips away from the North Shores of Lake Superior.
