Property description

This cottage has 2 bedrooms. One with a double bed and the other with a queen bed. There is a fantastic all window front porch for watching storms come in over the lake. Original hardwood maple floors throughout that were recently refinished. The kitchen has all the necessities, plus extra amenities such as a microwave oven, glass top stove, modern coffeemaker, plus an original Kalamazoo wood/gas vintage stove. The bathroom has a shower unit. High speed Wi-Fi and DirectTV are also included. There is a 32' flat screen in the living room and a smaller flat tv in the queen bed bedroom. Our location is clean, well maintained and fully equipped for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

On the beach you can enjoy a camp fire under the stars or even catch the northern lights, swim the Great Lake Superior, hunt the perfect rock or agate, fish till the sun goes down, barbecue on the charcoal grill and picnic at the picnic table, or take a nature walk and enjoy the natural beauty of the beach and forest. In the winter, ski, snowmobile, or snow-shoe right out of your front door or travel a short distance to our many local winter attractions.

Open year round, come relax and enjoy the natural beauty and tranquility of the cottage surroundings. You will truly love the beauty of the Copper Country and love staying at North Shore Cottages. For over 10 years we have opened our doors to people who continue to visit our cottages year after year. Just bring your food and a vacation state of mind.
