About the Property

Historic Cabin Oozing W/ Charm, Perfectly Situated Between Lutsen & Grand Marais

Painted Rock sits perched on a quaint spit of Lake Superior ledge rock, halfway between Lutsen and Grand Marais, on the edge of Cascade State Park. This historic log cabin has been fully restored to retain all its original charm and history of bygone days, while updated with all the modern amenities. An unusually large Main Gathering Room is home to a wood-burning fireplace, dining table, game table, and picture windows that bring the Big Lake indoors in all seasons. The master bedroom has a Queen Bed and its private entrance directly onto the deck allows guests to fall asleep to the soothing sound of gentle lapping of waves. The bathroom is outfitted in spa-like fashion, with an oversized deep-soaker tub and heated floors. With a 2nd bedroom also outfitted with a queen bed - and a deluxe queen sleeper-sofa in the Main Room - Painted Rock can comfortably sleep 4-6 adults.

Outside, an oversized deck sits just a few steps off the ledge rock shore line. A pro-style gas grill makes for easy outdoor cooking and gathering. As idyllic as the Painted Rock Cabin is, the cabin itself is only the beginning...

Painted Rock is situated in the heart of the most legendary and spectacular section of the entire North Shore. Except for a few private parcels of land right along the Superior Shore, Painted Rock essentially sits in the middle of pristine Cascade State Park. Hundreds of miles of Sawtooth Mountains trails (hiking in the summer, cross-country and snow mobile in the winter), are accessible right out the front door of the cabin. Cascade Lodge & Restaurant is an easy 1/2 mile walk and features great food, drinks, and frequent live music. A trail leading to Cascade Falls is within 100 yards of Painted Rock's from door! And within a 30 minute drive, everything for which the North Shore is known is accessible... world-class hiking, fishing, kayaking, biking trails, skiing, galleries, restaurants, NorthHouse Folk School, and a vibrant live music scene. After all, Painted Rock sits in the heart of Cook County and Grand Marais - which was recently named the "Coolest Small Town in America"!

Sitting on the edge of Lake Superior, the Painted Rock cabin sits within a 30 minute drive the best the Northwoods has to offer... From the Galleries, Restaurants, Culture, and Live Music of Grand Marais, to the hundreds of pristine back-country lakes for fishing and paddling, to the world-class hiking of the Sawtooth Mountain rivers, to the downhill skiing of Lutsen Mountains, to the hundreds of miles of cross-country ski and snow mobile trails right out the front door, Painted Rock offers a lifetime of exploration and entertainment.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: With both of us native to Kansas, we made our first foray to the Northwoods in 1994, shortly after being newly married. Little did we know that initial 5 night paddling trip, launched from the end of the Gunflint Trail outside of Grand Marais, would lead to a lifetime of pursuing the Northwoods and everything it represents. We now own and operate a Tallgrass Prairie retreat & preserve in the Flint Hills of Kansas, and we love the gentle beauty of the prairie - a sublime beauty the soaks slowly into your soul rather than a dramatic beauty that hits you upside the head! We find the Northwoods to be similar in that regard. Whether the quiet lapping of waves again a rock shore, the distant haunting call of a loon, the silent rise of a full moon over Lake Superior, or the crackle of a wood fire on a frigid snowy night, we find the essence of the Northwoods to invigorate our hearts and spirits like nowhere else. We can't think of anything more fulfilling than sharing our little piece of the North with guests in hope that it will be as life-giving to them as it is to us. Welcome to Painted Rock!
