About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
The house is furnished in mission style for a luxurious yet comfortable feel. Art scattered throughout the home, much of it by local artists, reflects the wilderness surrounding you. The open floor plan allows for cooking, dining and relaxing all with amazing Lake Superior views.
The main living area has a Carlton Peak rock fireplace and a 50' flat screen t.v. with both dvd and vcr players for evening movies. The stereo system includes a plug-in for your iPod. The home also has internet, so you can connect and even download movies, if you have that service. Two comfortable swivel recliners in the bay window let you nap while being lulled by the waves crashing on the shore.
Up a spiral stairs and overlooking the living area is a loft full of books, dvd and vcr movies, and a couch. Up another spiral stairs and you arrive in the turret with spectacular views of the lake and a reflecting telescope. From there you step out onto the rooftop deck which is perfect for star-gazing and watching the Northern Lights.
Or maybe you prefer to wander down to the lake to skip stones on your own private beach or fish off the ledgerock shore. Hot dogs and s'mores at the waterfront fire pit creates fun and memories for all ages.
You can create your own gourmet meals in the fully equipped kitchen using the JennAire stove with grill and other amenities. Or grill outside on the Weber!
The master bedroom is a special retreat with two walls of windows for stunning lake views. The attached bathroom has its own soaking tub and separate shower.
The first guest bedroom reflects the voyageur heritage of the North Shore. It's attached bathroom has whimsical wall art of spruce trees, bringing the surrounding forest inside. The second guest bedroom focuses on the art of Bev Doolittle with her portrayals of the hidden denizens of the birch forests. In the attached bathroom look out the window to find the trees which posed for the birch wall paintings!
Grey Havens is only minutes from Lutsen Ski Resort, with downhill skiing, snowboarding, and in summer, the Alpine Slide. Even closer is the 27 hole Lutsen National Golf Course. Miles of cross country ski trails start just across the road. Hiking in the beautiful state parks along Highway 61 is spectacular whatever the season. Just 20 minutes to the East is Grand Marais, an artist colony and charming town full of shops and restaurants to keep you entertained whatever the weather.
Grey Havens was a harbor for the highest and most powerful of the Elves in Tolkien's story of the Middle Kingdom. It was from Grey Havens that the Elves set sail for other enchanted lands. A place of magic and beauty, Grey Havens was a refuge for the Fellowship of the Ring and is our refuge for the soul.

Year Purchased: 1993
About the owner: We are city dwellers who have always loved the outdoors. When our children were young, we went camping and traveled all over the country. Once they were grown and we had four granddaughters, we decided a place where we could all be together and celebrate family events was important. We now split our time between Minneapolis and Lutsen, so we get to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Why the Owner Chose Lutsen, MN, USA:
We fell in love with the North Shore the very first time we visited. After years of renting other people’s homes, we decided we wanted our own piece of paradise. We purchased 1.5 acres right on Lake Superior in Lutsen and built our home with local architect and builder Bruce Carman. We love the many faces of the Lake, from smooth as glass to the powerful winter storms. The surrounding forest is full of wonderful birch and spruce trees not to mention the abundant wildlife -- deer, chipmunks, eagles, owls, and the occasional bear or wolf.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are avid hikers and have been all over the wonderful state parks that line Highway 61. Trips into Canada to Fort William and Thunder Bay or up into the Boundary Waters at Ely always are adventures of discovery. As well as hiking, we love to eat! When not making gourmet meals in our own kitchen, we have found numerous, sometimes hidden, restaurants serving everything from venison to burgers to four star cuisine. As amateur astronomers, we built our house with a turret and rooftop deck. There is nothing more awe inspiring than lying on the deck looking at the Milky Way or finding the North Star or identifying constellations on a warm summer night. Or bundling up and watching the shimmering Northern Lights on a fall or winter evening. There simply is no better place to relax and enjoy Nature in all her glory than our retreat on the North Shore.
