The cottage on Little Pequaywan is owned by a group of friends from the Duluth area who have maintained their friendship through their shared love of the outdoors. Throughout the last several years, we have completed some wild adventures together, such as: kayaking the Mississippi River, biking around Lake Superior and hiking the Grand Canyon from rim to rim to rim. Lately, we have decided to spend more time enjoying the area we have all lived in for most of our lives, Northern Minnesota! In order to enjoy the area to the fullest extent, we decided to purchase a cabin on one of the most beautiful lakes in the area, Little Pequaywan Lake. A little more about us: Tony: Grew up in Chisholm, Minnesota; graduated from the University of MN-Duluth; is currently employed as an engineer in Duluth. Chandra: Grew up in Minnesota; graduated from Lake Superior College; currently employed in the physical therapy field in the Duluth area. Lucas: Grew up in Northern Minnesota; graduated from the University of MN-Twin Cities; currently traveling throughout North America implementing business excellence principles within the forest products industry.. Roxanne: Grew up in Sturgeon Lake, MN; graduated from the University of MN-Duluth; currently employed in the organizational development field within the forest products industry.
Roxanne purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Roxanne chose Pequaywan
The first time we drove up to this property we knew it was the one for us (likely the reason why we made an offer to purchase the next day!). The well built and beautifully furnished cottage is situated 100' from the waters edge with a panoramic view from the living room, dining room and front patio. At the waters edge you will find 100' of lakeshore with a hard gravel bottom and a dock to enjoy everything the lake has to offer.
What makes this Cottage unique
The beautifully furnished living/dining area is a great place to relax and converse after a long day on the water or in the many acres of state owned forest just minutes from the cabin. If the outdoors is your primary reason for visiting, you will really enjoy fishing on Little Pequaywan Lake (very little traffic, no public landing) or snowmobiling on the many miles of local trails (less than a mile from the Brimson and Pequaywan trails).

We loved it! Beautiful cabin and fun lake time
This was a perfect little getaway for our family. The cabin is beautiful and our boys loved the kayaks and canoe for the lake. Sunrises over the lake are gorgeous! Everyone around town was so friendly. We enjoyed a morning at Split Rock lighthouse (about one hour drive) and also an afternoon of chartered fishing with Captain Parker of Superior Pursuits (Duluth).
Thank you for your review, sounds like you had a fabulous time! So glad that you were able to enjoy the beauty of Duluth and surrounding area.
Beautiful cabin in serene setting
Both the cabin and property are absolutely lovely. My husband and I enjoyed a weekday getaway and this was a wonderful home base for exploring the north shore.
We would definitely return.
Cozy, quiet getaway
Cozy, clean cabin was perfect for our three day getaway to relax and unwind. Kitchen had everything we needed, beds were comfy, and plenty of towels. The large windows facing the lake were great; watched a mother doe with two fawns make their way across the whole of the lake at sunset, and another came into the yard and was mere feet from the window while we were sitting in the living room chatting at night. Overall pleasant and quiet couple of days. Would definitely go back.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Having a clean property is very important to us so we are glad you appreciate it. We are also glad you got to see some wildlife when you were there. Please do come back and visit us again sometime.
We had a great time in this cabin perfect spot in the lake. Could watch the wildlife from the living room & enjoy the scenery.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! Its a beautiful spot to enjoy the lake.
Perfect place to unplug
We had a great stay and we were able to unplug for a few days, which was much needed. The property is great and getting there is easy. We hope to be back in the summer/fall to enjoy the lake access as well.
Thank you for your review, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! Please do come back and visit us in the summer as the lake is lovely.
A Return Trip for Cross Country Skiing
We first spent time at this lovely home 3 years ago. The home was just as beautiful as before. Beds are great , the kitchen had everything, warm showers and a beautiful view. We were five adults and we skied the Mother Bear Ski trail ( cross country) for two days. It is just nine miles north of the Pequaywan Inn. It is groomed regularly and we placed donations in the box. The trail is simply breath taking. We ate at Pequaywan Inn one night and burgers were decent. WE had three large snow falls during our time the third week of February and the road in front of the cabin was plowed by noon. The most wonderful aspect, NO Cell Phone Service for the Verizon folks.. Our AT&T niece had a small amount of service. Relaxing. There was a sauna available but we did not use it. Also quite a bit of snowmobiling in the area of that is important to you.
Thank you so much for review! We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay and were able to use the local ski trail. I appreciate you detailing your experience with skiing as others are interested in that as well. We hope you can come back and enjoy our property at a future date!
