Year-round 26 x 28 Chalet-style lake house provides 180 degree view of Lake Superior, has central heating, full basement with laundry facilities, full bathroom with shower, and full kitchen. New in 2008: new carpeting throughout the cabin, new lakeside windows and new master bedroom bed. Available April through November--occasionally through Christmas, depending upon how early the heavy snow arrives (the county does not snowplow our road, thus access is limited once the snow season arrives).

This property is uniquely situated with a panoramic view of Lake Superior out the front side and a view out the cabin’s backside toward a large wetlands area with lagoon (suitable for canoeing and kayaking) and lots of wildlife: common sitings of bald eagles, sand hill cranes, beaver, geese, ducks, deer. Great blueberry picking in late summer/early fall on the property and nearby areas. Superb fall colors make autumn a nice time to visit.
