About the Property

Immaculate cabin on a spectacular and * 'woodsy' lake setting.

Now taking reservations for 2017. Reserve your month or week long stay now.
Is your summer vacation on your mind? What about you contracted workers looking for the dream home away from home for extended time? Look no further, a beautiful retreat is yours as you enjoy clean and complete accommodations in the Red Cabin on Caribou Lake. Contact me today to work out the details of your stay! The morning sun will peek in the east windows to awaken your adventurous spirit. In the summer, perhaps start the day with a morning walk or kayak amidst the calling Loons of the Caribou Bay. If you are visiting in the winter, this northern wonderland is smack dab right out your front door so bring your gear and join the ice fisherman, snowshoers and cross country ski enthusiasts on the lake. Don't forget to load your bikes and explore the Munger Trail or the North Shore areas. You can choose between the Duluth nightlife in Canal Park (keep an eye out for the big ships slipping under the lift bridge) or a quiet evening around the fire as every sunset is a vibrant and new display to behold.

You will not be disappointed with all the amenities including a full kitchen, large screen tv, wi-fi and a sunroom off the deck. While there is one bedroom, the other living areas hold futons to sleep a total of 4. Two adults and kids are a comfortable fit for The Red Cabin. Kayaks and a canoe available for your enjoyment as well as yard games...just watch out for the deer, rabbits, chipmunks, ducks, otters, birds and other wildlife as you boche, croquet or just watch the snowflakes fall and the stars twinkle...slip your way to utter relaxation!

  • Taxes Not included

Notes:

I book 7 day minimums for summer in advance; if you need accomodations for 3 nights, I will also book them in advance. I will consider two night stays. Single night bookings may also possibly be made within the day or two of the night needed. I work with you on an individual basis depending on both of our schedules. I reserve the right to book according to my work schedule-so an open calendar does not guarantee I can accommodate your party-again, I will work with you on an individual basis.

Half the rate (which is non-refundable) will be paid upon booking via check or cash; the remainder upon check in with cash or credit card. All credit card transactions will include an additional 3.7% swipe fee.

Contact for details. A damage deposit will be collected and returned within 3 days of satisfactory check out/ or a credit card number can be held for the damage deposit.

Duluth is a destination delight. Stay in your very own private and peaceful lake cabin retreat on the edge of Caribou Lake...only 16 miles from Canal Park in Duluth and 4 miles from the edge of Hermantown which adjoins Duluth. There is always something exciting to explore, anytime of the year. Check out an official Duluth Travel Guide! (Please note, The Red Cabin is nestled in a peaceful and secluded neighborhood at the end of a peninsula. Loud parties, excessive drinking and substance use are not welcome nor tolerated. Thank you)

 

Owner info

About the owner: I am a Registered Nurse with a passion for Quality Management. I embrace the principles of the Malcolm Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence after seeing first hand the value brought to an organization after assessing the critical aspects of work against the criteria. I have enjoyed learning how to continually try to exceed the expectations of all guests of honor as my quality journey continues and I keep my mission alive; making the Red Cabin your Duluth Destination Delight!

Why the Owner Chose Duluth, MN, USA:
The first moment I set sight on the Red Cabin, I knew it was one of the most perfect places in the world. I immediately took to the special details so well thought out inside the cabin while promptly falling in love with the surrounding woods, rocks, the lake and peninsula. It is amazing how each season is unique and to be celebrated. While swinging near the shore with a refreshment in the summer, it is mezmerizing to imagine ice and snow across the expanse of the bay settling in, in but a few short months; and the reverse as you sit in the same swing bundled up in your winter gear imagining summer, the lake being a body of open water; always moving, never the same. When the ice comes and goes it is a treasure of sights and mysterious sounds that can't be properly described in word. Some early winters, the lake freezes hard before the snow and allows for ice skating; everywhere! A rare experience only few will ever know. The Red Cabin location is superb. To be so close to the edge of town (and what an exciting, unique and cool town Duluth/Hermantown is!) while yet being out in the woods; it is hard to find anything like it left in this world. The Red Cabin is just an experience in itself. I am honored to share it with people that are good stewards of God's world and will uphold and respect my Red Cabin and her grounds. It is expecially delightful for me to hear the shrieks of joy from young children out in the yard, feeding a fish or making a snowman. I look forward to visiting with you as you plan your vacation; I believe you will find unparalleled excellence at The Red Cabin.
