About the property

2 bedroom Lake Superior Shoreline Cottage W/Specular Views Accommodates 6


This enchanting all-season cottage is only 25 minutes South of Thunder Bay and 1 hour North of Grand Marais, Minnesota. It is a close "escape" for those living in or near Thunder Bay and beacons to those who have ventured only as far as Grand Marais. The Cottage is a peaceful place for all in need of quiet reflection in nature's amazing canvas.

NOTE: RATE SCHEDULE IS IN CANADIAN DOLLARS. U.S. guests receive a substantial discount due to the strong US Dollar. Please contact owner for rates in USD.

A spectacular and scenic road trip meandering along Lake Superior's famous North Shore coastline from Duluth, Minnesota is acclaimed "one of the most scenic routes" in the United States. But the scenic drive does not end in Grand Marais! Continue North only 25 minutes to the US/Canadian boarder to embrace and experience a mountainous, rugged topography with AMAZING views of Lake Superior dotted with its islands and inlets -- not seen on the USA side.

The cottage is ideal for the business traveler working in or near Thunder Bay preferring a view of majestic Lake Superior vs. a hotel room. Quality wireless Internet is provided allowing you to truly work "remotely". Mobile phone connection in the area is excellent.

The hot tub/spa is located on the front deck overlooking Lake Superior and "open" year-round. Relax in the warm water as the sun rises or sets and in-between sunshine, moonshine, raindrops or snowflakes. A perfect place for amazing star-gazing and viewing Northern Lights.

A new propane fueled BBQ grill is located on the front deck.

Perhaps the "north shore" experience is complete with toasted marshmallows over a lakeside campfire? It is your decision but regardless a fire pit down a meandering path overlooking Lake Superior awaits. The lower deck, which literally "hangs" over the lake has shoreline access. It is the perfect place to enjoy panoramic "Superior" views, launch a kayak or enjoy a shoreline bonfire.

Two private bedrooms offer comfortable beds, fine linens, ample closet space, dressers and flat screen televisions with satellite access. Both bedrooms are tucked quietly away from the main living area and close to the main bathroom.

The living area hosts an 'open concept' floor plan and a (truly) comfortable queen sofa bed and chaise lounge, which are convenient for additional guests to slumber.

A large flat screen television hosts quality satellite, DVD player, and a large selection of DVD movies for guests to enjoy. A stereo system with CD, MP3, Bluetooth, FM/AM radio is available for guest use. There is also a selection of CD music of various genre.

Various card and board games are also provided.

The bathroom hosts a bath/shower combination with hand held shower option, grab bar and terrific water pressure! Shampoo, conditioner & body soap are provided.

The kitchen is recently updated and fully equipped. Plenty of cook and bake ware, dishes, table settings, napkins, paper towels and variety of spices are available for guest use.

Thunder Bay hosts an International Airport just 25 minutes from the cottage allowing people from all over the world to visit this special place on earth.


For those from the U.S.A. who have not yet ventured past Grand Marais, MN -- what are you waiting for with your strong dollar? Experience this spectacular terrain and adventure just across the boarder. The Cottage is only 1 hour from Grand Marais and the strong U.S. dollar provides significant savings to U.S. citizens.

Note: Passports are required at the U.S./Canadian Boarder Patrol.

I could go on and on about the 'Superior' views and spectacular setting of this charming Lake Superior cottage...however with no less than 100% 5-star guest reviews? My treasured guests have already said it all.

The Cottage is available YEAR-ROUND. Remember to please reserve your requested nights early for the popular summer months. The Cottage is also available in winter! Experience this winter wonderland and an abundance of local activities close by. Excellent alpine and nordic ski trails, ice climbing and local winter festivals embrace this not-so-quiet time in the North.

The Cottage & "Spirit of Gitche Gumee" awaits your visit. Welcome.

About Carolyn Nelson

I take great pride keeping the cottage fresh and updated and tend to the smallest detail. I am very particular when it comes to cleanliness. I personally work at the property to insure the high standard is maintained. It is truly my pleasure to share this incredible place and space with you.

I personally love exploring the woods by XX ski and hiking. I have the utmost respect for the power & beauty Lake Superior beholds, spirit of Gitche Gumee; the nature, serenity and magic surrounding the cottage and animals who also call this place home.

I enjoy traveling and believe it broadens ones perspective of the world and teaches tolerance, respect and understanding in regard to cultures and people.

Thank you for being my guest. I really look forward hosting you.

Why Carolyn Nelson chose Ontario

This spectacular place has brought to me, friends, family and guests many cherished memories, healing escapes & heart-felt adventure. This is truly one of my favorite places in this world.

What makes this cottage unique

Thunder Bay is a wonderful cultural city growing in business, economy and population. It also hosts an International Airport. The city and airport is only 25 minutes from the cottage where you can find quality stores, fresh meat, fish & produce and fantastic restaurants. There are many cultural events, festivals & adventures in and around Thunder Bay, which is so rich in history.

Of course my favorite place is residing at the cottage overlooking the ever-changing magnificent Lake Superior, but I also appreciate the convenience of having a city close by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Heather & I very much enjoyed our stay at your beautiful lake house where we celebrated her birthday.

Our first morning here started foggy but after lunch the mist burned off the lake to present us with an afternoon of brilliant sun.

We love the decorative touches in each of your rooms. You have a great eye for style.

The night visits to the campfire allowed us to stare at the stars, listening to the calming surf, and to look up to the warm, inviting hilltop cottage.

We loved the hot tub the best!

We will be back again. Thanks for the excellent hospitality!

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family met in Thunder Bay to spend Christmas together. For some it was a very long journey, so walking into a beautiful, cozy, comfy and clean cottage complete with a lit Christmas tree was wonderful. We were amazed at the fully equipped kitchen, and all the extra amenities that were provided, making our stay easy and relaxing. Everyone enjoyed the fireplace, hot tub, the hiking trails, the scenery and the peace and quiet. We hope that one day we will be able to go back, during the summer. Thank you for making our Christmas special, one that we will never forget.

Wonderful little cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is absolutely charming and spotlessly clean. The view is magnificent. We drove to and from Thunder Bay everyday as we were visiting family. During our nightly drives, we saw a Momma bear and her two cubs, several small foxes, deer, raccoons, and other critters. On our first morning, a beautiful falcon flew overhead and perched nearby a bald eagle. The cottage is so peaceful and cozy. Although on a remote road, there were always some people around in the neighbouring cottages. We would not hesitate to stay here again, and found Carolyn wonderful to deal with.

Loved the getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely getaway for those needing peaceful and quiet wilderness setting. You do need to drive about 20 minutes to get to TB. Cathy the caretaker was lovely and answered any questions we had. Some cool places to visit: amethyst hunting, Kakabeka Falls(Portage- hike all the way down to the bottom) cheese farm and Hoito the Finn restaurant for pancakes. Thunder Bay Saturday Market for local food and artsy finds...also right next to a HUGE movie theater...make an afternoon of it. Great wilderness hikers dream.

Thunder Bay Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Falcon Ridge was a most pleasant surprise. The pictures on the site don't really do it justice. It surpassed our expectations. Beautiful views of Lake Superior from the cottage and lovely accommodations. Carolyn has really thought of everything that will make your stay comfortable. Appreciated having Cathy close by checking in on us and being so helpful. The drive into Thunder Bay is a little longer than indicated but we tried to remember to do everything in one or two trips so we didn't have to go often. Loved the hot tub! Especially since we didn't find the lake very good for swimming.

The cottage is "on" Lake Superior only 25 minutes South of Thunder Bay. Thunder Bay offers many tourist activities, parks, farmers markets and festivals for those exploring this historical area.

Groomed hiking trails are just out the cottage door. Pack a picnic and head to "picnic point" for spectacular panoramic views of Sturgeon Bay & Lake Superior. In late summer bring along a pail to collect wild raspberries which abound along the trails. Views are truly breathtaking!

And yes, even in nature we are "connected". Wireless Internet is provided at the cottage and mobile phone service is excellent in the area.

The cottage is close to many adventures and tourist sites including Eagle Cannon, which has the longest extension footbridge and zip line in Canada. Kekabeka Falls, Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, Old Fort Williams, Loch Lomand Ski Area, Whitewater Golf Course and the largest North American Amethyst Mine.

There are just too many "day trips" and activities for people of all ages and interests to mention here. Additional information & brochures are located at the cottage and on the thunder bay tourism web site.
