Property type townhome


About the property

2 Bedroom + Loft, 2 Bath, Pet-friendly 2-story Townhome On Lake Superior!

This amazing townhome is designed for those who want to get away from the hussle and bussle of the city and let the waves of Lake Superior bring some calm back into a busy life. It's perfect for a romantic get-away, a family/group vacation or a "base camp" for the outdoor enthusiasts....or ALL of the above! This beautiful 2-story Sea Villa has been lovingly maintained and tastefully updated. It sleeps 6 comfortably but one could use the pull-out sofa and sleep 8. Sleeping arrangements are as follows: There is a one king-size bed in the lakeside bedroom. There is one queen-size bed along with a sleeping loft that has two twin mattresses in the 2nd bedroom (please note that the loft space has limited headroom which means that you can't fully stand up...unless you're a young kid or very short!) There is a pull-out sofa on the main level, too. The main floor 3/4 bathroom has a beautifully tiled shower, a lovely hard-surface countertop and in-floor heat to keep your toes comfortable and warm. The upstairs boasts a full bath and it also includes some lovely features and updates giving it a retreat-like feel. Enjoy the fresh, soft linens, the fluffy white towels and the eco-friendly soaps/shampoos/body gels provided, too. The fact that it is a pet-friendly get-away spot is a wonderful feature, too, as well. It's nice to be able to bring our furry family members with us on vacation at times. The kitchen has all of the tools and space you'll need whether you stay in and cook your own meals or just need a place to gather and stare and the lake. "Everybody hangs out in the kitchen" holds true no matter where you are! Enjoy that morning cup of coffee, watch the waves roll in and the sun come up. It's tempting to step out onto the deck, take a few steps to the ledgerock shoreline and just sit and relax the whole day away. Enjoy a nice evening bonfire and gaze at the stars. You truly won't believe your eyes if you've never experienced the sky at night on the North Shore. Being that this townhome is an end unit with a huge wrap-around deck you can spend a lot of your time outside...enjoying the beauty of the "Big Lake". If the kids want to take a swim, the pool building is just a one minute walk away. There is also a fun playground to be found to the west...just stroll along the walking path and it'll lead you there. The pure and simple joy of being able to do whatever you want is magical enough!

Why Deb and John McGuire chose Lutsen

There is no place on earth quite like the North Shore and its gem, Lake Superior. The Tofte and Lutsen area has a welcoming vibe to it and there's just so much to do. How lucky are we to have the Superior Hiking Trail, the Gitchi-Gami bike trail and the Big Lake right outside our door. We hope you will love our Sea Villa as much as we do. Thank you for considering it for your next get-away!

What makes this townhome unique

Our property, D1 Sea Villa, is a highly sought after end-unit. It also has an amazing wrap-around deck that most of the other townhomes do not have. The outdoor table and chairs, the really makes for a comfortable spot to relax.

Thank you for considering our beautiful Sea Villa (D1) for your upcoming vacation. It is impossible to find a place that sits as close to the shore of Lake Superior as the Sea Villas do! We are just a few miles away from Superior National Golf Course and Lutsen Ski Resort, too. Don't miss out on visiting Grand Marais, voted "America's Coolest Small Town" in 2015. It's just a 20-25 minute drive away. Please note that we truly appreciate you giving our Sea Villa as much care as we do in order to keep it in the condition that it's in.

A wonderful stay on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5

We love this comfy, well equipped unit right on the shores of beautiful Lake Superior. With the great wood burning stove, lots of cd's, games, puzzles, books, everything is there you could want or need. I love the kitchen, it has every kitchen tool you could want!! We slept well in the comfy king sized bed, listening to the waves lap the shore. The 6 year old who was with us loved going to the pool, when he tired of collecting rocks.

Incredible views, warm and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay in D1 of the Sea Villas. The layout was very nice, it was well stocked, and clean. It allowed us to be cozy and comfortable and enjoy the amazing views when we weren't out hiking or checking out Grand Marias! Large deck would be nice in warmer weather. Views from living, kitchen and master bath were the best!! We would stay in the same unit again!

Beautiful cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location for a weekend away, we went up with another couple. Close to Temperance River and Cascade Falls for hiking and sight seeing. Owner has a sizable collection of games and puzzles and local music cd's to enjoy while listening to the waves crash in on the shore. Very comfortable beds, and the fact that it is pet friendly is wonderful! Plenty of green space to walk the dogs outside as well as some trails on site.

The beds were very comfortable in this updated villa! We were awe struck with the view from the master bedroom and listening to the waves crash on the shore made for a restful night! We will return!
