About the Property
House, 6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 20)
Lake Superior Barn stands on 320 acres of remote wilderness and sandy beach. The home sits on the south shore of Lake Superior, staring across the lake to the North Shore cities of Duluth and Two Harbors whose lights twinkle in the distance at night. The property is completely surrounded by the Brule River State Forest so there is not another home on the Lake Superior shoreline for miles… Enjoy the secluded sandy beach or walk it like an ocean looking for beach-glass. Listen to the waves crash or swim in the cleanest of all the Great Lakes where the temperature can reach 60 or 70 degrees in the shallow, sandy bottom water. Warm up to a driftwood fire or roast s'mores on the waterfront.
Once back to the house, wash the sand off your feet in the outside shower while taking in the 180 degree view of Lake Superior. Enjoy the 1600 sq foot reclaimed deck just outside the beautiful kitchen and a pantry with all the extra ingredients and spices you may have forgotten. Build a fire with firewood provided in the stone fireplace or lay in a bean bag and pick a book to read from the stocked bookshelves in the loft. Lake Superior Barn has 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 3 showers built from the reclaimed lumber, steel and nails of 7 turn of the century Minnesota barns. The game room has radiant concrete heat to warm your toes as you play ping pong, video games, shuffle board or lounge on the couch to watch a movie on the Apple TV.
The Lake Superior Barn is a unique and rustic experience... there is a TV, but no satellite or cable TV... plenty of cards, books and boardgames! We do have APPLE TV... like a large iPod with movies, TV shows & music.
On the 320 acres of forest, there are trails through the woods and bridges over Haukkula Creek that flows the length of the property. Pick raspberries and wild strawberries in the summer or snowshoe the woods and trails in the winter… either way, you will never encounter another person on the private and secluded land. End the day by building a fire while overlooking Lake Superior and watch the summer sun set over the hills of Duluth.

About the owner: We have 5 kids... 4 boys and 1 girl. We live in Minneapolis, MN. Enjoy 'the Barn...' Thanks, Tom & Nicole and Kids
Why the Owner Chose Maple, WI, USA:
We fell in love with the Lake, the sound of the waves, the endless sandy beach and the fact that you are 30 minutes from an amazing city like Duluth, but you feel so remote and surrounded by nature.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property is totally remote and surrounded by State forest... you will very likely not see another person. The reclaimed home is unique and the feel is rustic. The beach is secluded and it feels like you are on an ocean.
