Place was everything and more we expected. Pictures didn't really show how the house and view is.

  • 5 of 5

Property was very nice. There are a few maintenance things that should be done. None of them prevented us from having a great experience.

Master bedroom had drawer hardware missing. Tv remotes weren't synced so had to use two instead of one. Remotes in basement were also either not synced or one had bad batteries. Ice maker in refrigerator didn't work very well. Ceiling fans need to be cleaned. Firewood outside was a little wet. All of this being addressed would give an even better impression to guests. I did tell desk person about some of these and she indicated they are aware of some and were working on them.

Beautiful, well-kept house with pristine lake overlook.

  • 5 of 5

Six of us recently stayed at Solbakken House for four nights. During that time, we heard loons call and saw almost nobody. The house is a short drive to Grand Marais, and has everything you need to be comfortable. In many cases, pictures on travel web sites look better than the actual homes, but not in this case. You will love the stunning overlook on several levels.

We Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a long weekend at this house and we simply loved it. Walking in from the front door and seeing the view of Caribou Lake was delightful and the pictures do not do it justice. Our group was made up of 8 and everyone had their own space and own bathroom. We grilled and sat on the deck each nite and watched falling stars after full days of hiking and biking. We plan to return!

Comfortably, clean and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The property was georgeous! A beautiful setting. We had a wonderful family vacation! Group of 9 fit comfortably as did our 6 cars. I would suggest some written instructions on the Jacuzzi tub that may eliminate phone calls for maintenance. Only complaint was just one chair at the fire pit. Luckily one son arrived a day later and brought our lawn chairs. Another son had car troubles and the maintenance guy went way out of his way to help - a true 'Minnesota Nice' Story!!! I would recommend this place to anyone! Comfortable, clean and beautiful!

Perfect location, great views, luxury in the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

The homestay has everything we needed to make our stay memorable and comfortable (group of 6 adults and 2 toddlers). The views from master room, living room, deck and upper loft are unbelievably picturesque. Certainly reserving it again.
