This is our vacation home, not a corporate rental, and when we're not there, it is our pleasure to share it with fellow north shore lovers. Every piece of furniture and art was hand selected to provide a beautiful and oh so comfortable home to return to after a hard day at play on the north shore. A dramatic two story wall of windows facing the lake lets you enjoy the sights and sounds of this incredible body of water, it's mesmerizing. Our home is perfect for one or two couples, there are two bedrooms, one on each floor, each with a connected bath for privacy. Our home's amazing view and ideal location attracts lots of inquiries from travelers with a 5th or 6th person, rather than turn them down, we added twin air mattresses so we can accommodate six guests maximum.
Windsong is a small lakeside town home community, not a resort. Enjoy the amenities of an upscale resort without the noise and crowds. Indoor Heated pool, (open between Memorial Day weekend and New Year's Day), a year around sauna and a fire pit are across the driveway.
The Gitchi-Gami State Trail is at the top of Windsong Drive, walk or ride bikes to Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls. Palisade Head and Tettegouche State Park are a few miles up 61. A spur trail from Cove Point offers access to the Superior Hiking Trail, hike for miles through forests, along ridges, rivers, waterfalls and lakes. What an amazing place in every season, come explore by day and relax in style and comfort at night.
Winter guests enjoy miles and miles of nearby cross country and snowmobile trails. The midwest's best downhill skiing is just 40 minutes away at Lutsen. Gooseberry Falls park and Split Rock both have beautiful, groomed cross country ski trails, we use them to snowshoe too. There's nothing like spending time on foot, skis or snowshoes in the woods in winter. It's good for your body, mind and soul.
Walk to nearby restaurants: Northern Lights, Lemon Wolf Cafe, Cove Point Lodge, Camp 61 and Crossings Bar & Grille and The Big Dipper Ice cream shop which are open seasonally. You'll love how conveniently located our home is, come play!

About Jo Ebbert
We are from the Twin Cities so Minnesota is home but there's NO place on earth like the north shore. We've been coming here for over 30 years, we ever chose to get married on the top of Moose Mountain in Lutsen. Of course, we love the North Shore any time of year but much to our surprise, Winter is our favorite! We are snowshoers and we find that we are often the only ones on the trails, we LOVE the solitude! We snowshoe the same Superior Hiking Trails that we hike in other seasons and we marvel at how the view changes when the foliage is gone. It's incredibly beautiful and peaceful, we hope you'll try it on one of your visits. You can rent snowshoes next door at Cove Point Lodge, at Split Rock State Park or Beaver Bay Sports if you don't have your own.
Jo Ebbert purchased this Townhome in 2005
Why Jo Ebbert chose Two Harbors
Beaver Bay is easy to get to from the Twin Cities and it's a beautiful drive. Of course the view of Lake Superior was a huge draw for us, it's hard to believe it's a lake! Listening to the waves hit the rocks, watching the sun come up over the lake, stargazing over a pitch black lake, it's a soul refreshing place.
What makes this Townhome unique
Our home is such a wonderful retreat, when we step inside, the weight of the world lifts off of our shoulders. We really enjoy the proximity to so many incredible State Parks. Gooseberry Falls, Split Rock and Tettegouche are all within 10 miles. The Superior Hiking Trail and state park trails take you through forests, along rivers, past waterfalls, to inland lakes and along Lake Superior. If you prefer a stroll or bike ride to a hike, you can walk or bike ride for miles along the shore on the Gitchi-Gami State Trail at the top of Windsong Drive. Golfers, enjoy Lutsen's Superior National Golf course 27 holes of spectacular golf just 40 minutes away. The best downhill sking and snowboarding in the Midwest is also 40 minutes away at Lutsen Mountains. We never get tired of this place and start counting the days until we can return between guests.

Stunning well-appointed townhome with amazing views!
We loved our stay at this beautiful townhome on the waters edge of Lake Superior. The home was very comfortable and the kitchen contained everything we needed to make wonderful meals. The master bedroom had stunning views and the beds were extremely comfortable. We were traveling with another couple who had stayed in the cottages nearer to Cove Point Lodge and indicated that these accommodations were amazing in comparison and had more comfortable common spaces. It was great to walk to the lodge for dinner and to stroll along the waters edge. Absolutely would return.
We are so happy to hear you and your friends enjoyed your stay and found our home so comfortable, that was our goal when we chose the furnishings and equipped the kitchen. Your your private message after your stay telling us our home was one of the best VRBO's you have stayed at was also wonderful to hear, thank you for telling us that. We hope you can return, it's an amazing place no matter what season it is. All the best to you.
Beautiful views of Lake Superior
We enjoyed our stay at Windsong over New Years. The home was tastefully furnished, clean, and comfortable. The owners had great communication in regard to driving directions, access, and home operation.
Amazing views, clean, cozy, and nicely appointed!
Jo was super helpful in the lead-up to our trip, and everything was straightforward once we arrived. We loved the place and had a wonderful time! Thanks for the great experience in this wonderful part of the world.
Great property. Views of the lake are breath taking. Property owners have good instructions posted and have pre-visit communication.
What a enjoyable stay
This place was very nice and welcoming. We were there with one outher couple who got engaged at split rock lighthouse while we visited. We loved the central location to the touristy areas. We would definitely recommend and may come back in the future.
Perfect get away for old friends with an ideal floor plan for 2 couples
We spent a few days here with old friends enjoying hiking the Oberg and Bean and Bear loops, color touring, reliving old stories and lots of laughter. We all agreed we'll do this again when snowshoe season comes, it's the perfect location for access to parks and trails, looking forward to winter now!
Boats, ATVs, snowmobiles, snowshoes, bicycles, kayaks and canoes can be rented nearby. The Marina is right next to Beaver Bay Sports just 2 miles from our home, great for getting out on the 'big lake'.
