Looking to get away from it all while in Minnesota? You will feel like you are on the ocean while relaxing at Aspenwood in Lutsen MN. Immediately upon entering, you will notice that every room has an unobstructed view of Lake Superior, making you feel as if you are part of the lake.
Late afternoon and evenings are magical at the lake. Build a fire on the rocks and count stars while the moon dances across the water and later fall asleep at night to the sound of waves lapping on the shoreline. Early risers can watch the sun rise right out of the water while drinking coffee on one of the lakeside decks or sleep in until the warm sun greets your face.
The interior of Aspenwood leaves nothing to the imagination as to where you are; on the north shore of Lake Superior. 2,500+ square feet of living space are adorned with hand-made log furniture and other creature comforts only a newer home can bring. Gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops, two gas fireplaces, upper and lower TV areas with satellite TV/DVD/VCR (and movie library) as well as a game area allow large groups to each have their own space or couples have plenty of room to roam.
All 4 bedrooms have a dedicated bath and the owner's suite has a two person 'Jacuzzi' whirlpool that overlooks the lake for romantic evenings or soothing sore muscles after an invigorating day of skiing, biking or hiking.
THINGS TO DO
**We have direct access to the Gitchi Gami Bike Trail. You can bike to the Temperence River state park and hike the waterfalls without getting in your car!**
The north shore offers something for each season. Skiers are welcomed home with in-floor heat on each level providing your feet and body with the most luxurious heating system available. Groomed cross country ski trails are less than one mile away and Lutsen Mountains are 6 miles away for easy access. Our insulated, attached garage is a convenient place to store all your ski equipment and car.
Stay cool during hot summer days with Lake Superior's natural air conditioning or travel a few miles inland and enjoy area lakes for fishing or boating. Superior National Golf Course is only 3 miles away and offers 27 of the most visually stunning (and quite challenging!)holes in the Midwest.
Enjoy 5 restaurants within 10 minutes of our north shore rental home such as Lutsen Resort and Blue Fin in Tofte MN.
Grand Marais MN is a 20 minute drive down the shore and has many unique shops to satisfy even the biggest shoppers. Take a pick of some fabulous cuisine while in town and enjoy the views of the harbor.
Don't forget about spring blossoms, hikes along streams bloated by spring rains and unmatched fall colors in the Boreal forest. April and November are great quiet times to curl up and read a book by the fire and listen to the waves on the shore when you just need some time to yourself.
Take advantage of everything the area has to offer or stay in and do nothing at all. Either way, Aspenwood has what you are looking for!

About Rick Storlie
Hello! My name is Rick Storlie. I have a 8 year old son Mason and 10 year old daughter Breanna. I live in Savage, MN and originally from Northfield. My brother Chip is a part owner with me. Both of us are alumni of St. Cloud State University.
Rick Storlie purchased this Townhome in 2006
Why Rick Storlie chose Tofte
My family has been vacationing on the north shore since 1975. My father owned a Lutsen Sea Villa (which is coincidentally less than a mile from our cabin now) until 1995. I learned to ski, deer/grouse hunt and skip rocks on the north shore. Chip has hiked many miles of the Superior Hiking trail and loves to kayak along the shore of Lake Superior on calm days. We've swam in the lake (be careful it's cold), water skied (on a dare), fished and enjoyed bathtub like water (once) along with 20+ foot waves. One of the neatest things to do is sleep with the windows open and hear the waves crashing on the rocks below. The combination of Lake Superior and the Superior National forest has an indescribable calming effect on your soul. All I can say is- a trip to the north shore is guaranteed to recharge your batteries!
What makes this Townhome unique
No matter what the season there are things to do on the North Shore. SUMMER Try the Alpine slide located at Lutsen Mountains. The Gitchi Gami bike trail now has been extended so you can access it in front of our home. You can hop on and bike the north shore for miles. Find Lake Superior fishing charters in Tofte and Grand Marais along with inland fishing lakes too. The Superior Hiking Trail is only a couple of miles from our home. I recommend the Oberg and LeVeaux loop- fantastic overlooks! Golfers will love Superior National and its 27 holes. Yes it's challenging but the views of Lake Superior and Moose Mountain will help you forget how many balls you've lost! Like to shop? Quaint shops are located right on the harbor in Grand Marais. Only 20 minutes away. WINTER Lutsen Mountains has the best downhill skiing in the Midwest. There are hundreds of miles of cross country, snow shoe and snowmobile trails accessible within 5 minutes. The clubhouse at Superior National turns into a winter recreation activity center. You can go on horse drawn sleigh rides and take dog mushing tours- just stop by. SPRING Spring time hikes along raging streams in the spring will give you countless photo opportunities. Perhaps the best spring activity is hanging our at our home with a good book. Cook some great food and take advantage of quiet time on the North Shore. Rates are lower too! FALL The fall colors in the Maple forests are second to none. Fall is still my favorite time to visit the north shore. I think the two things we may love the most are fires on the lake shore and coffee on the deck overlooking the lake. If you're an early riser you can see the sun come right out of the water!

Everything you need is right there, hard to leave😓😓😓😓
Always love the Coho coffee shop, and Blue Finn bay grill!!!
The place was incredible! The view, the ease of use, the convenience of getting to Lutsen to ski, to surrounding state parks to showshoe, and to Grand Marais for live music and a couple beers. Not to mention the fact that there's a bathroom for every bedroom! We were VERY happy and would definitely book this place again! Rick and Nita were both super easy to work with, and very helpful in answering our questions, and the check-in and check-out processes were well-communicated. Thanks for a great weekend get-away!
Second stay. Great place. Great owner.
Beautiful views of the lake. Excellent location. Clean and very nice place. Highly recommend renting from Rick!
Loved it! Good location and very comfortable. Beds were comfortable and kitchen well stocked.
Cross country ski, Snowmobile and hiking trails (including the Superior Hiking trail) are accessible across Hwy 61 off the Onion River Road. The Alpine slide and Gondola Rides are very close and open in the spring, summer and fall.
The Gitchie Gami bike trail is accessible right from our driveway and connects to the Temperance River State Park, Tofte, Superior National Golf Course, Lutsen Resort and Ski Hill Road in Lutsen.
Grand Marais is 20 minutes down Hwy 61 for shopping, recreation and lots of dining options!
