“GOING BEYOND THE ORDINARY! RENTING A VACATION HOME VERSES A VACATION RENTAL!
My name is Barb Daugs of VRBO #661604, I am now consulting with and providing services for John & Laurie’s beautiful home. I believe John and Laurie’s place will become another frequently booked property.
We are private owners who offer the luxury of staying on the shore in our upscale vacation homes. In turn, we look for guests who are willing to use our homes with care and consideration of our residential neighbors.
OWNER’S PRIVATE RETREAT ON THE WATERS EDGE……..
An upscale, lodge themed North Shore retreat. Un-paralleled majestic views of Lake Superior from thei over-sized windows that encompass the entire East and South side of the Living room and dining room.
Being right on the lake with these views creates an atmosphere of being on an Inland Sea. You experience the many moods of Lake Superior right out your window. The feel of the waves thunder along the rock face right below the deck and windows. It is so incredible to witness the power and blue beauty of our Minnesota treasure - Lake Superior!
DECKS RIGHT AT THE WATER'S EDGE MATTER ...
This home boasts some of the best unobstructed views of Lake Superior that you can find. I think you would agree when you want a North Shore vacation right on the lake you want a large enough deck to enjoy the lake! Also, a private deck with no other guests walking in front of your view of the lake. I would say this is our number one selling point of the lake front Windsong town homes!
LIVING ROOM/DINING ROOM/KITCHEN
From the minute you enter the large entry way of this end unit town home you are drawn into the atmosphere of a true upscale lodge themed home. It feels warm and welcoming with all the unique décor, and as you enter you are immediately wowed by the lake front wall of windows overlooking the waves of Lake Superior glistening before you! You feel you are in for one great vacation!
The living room looks out over beautiful Lake Superior! Enjoy relaxing and looking at the lake or watch the large flat screen TV with Cable. Free Wifi is also available. Enjoy a wood fire in the fireplace after a long day of activities on the shore. (Formerly the fireplace was unavailable due to insurance and now guests can use it.)
It gets even better…. The dining room area is perfectly situated with windows surrounding it and what a view of the Lake! It makes for a comfortable arrangement for 6 guests.
A walk out patio door flows off the dining room onto a large side deck with gas grill or walks around to the front deck for leisure seating.
The full size galley kitchen with wet bar makes for a great entertaining while cooking. It boasts quartz counter tops and beautiful hickory cabinets. It is fully equipped for the needs of the guests who want to cook. Complete with full size stove, full size frig with ice maker, dish washer, microwave, garbage disposal.
The kitchen is well appointed with the pots and pans and utensils you need to make your meals. We also provide basic Penzy spices to aide in cooking your delicious meals. To help with food storage we provide tin foil, plastic wrap, zip lock bags. We also provide kitchen towels, paper towels, napkins, and dish/hand/dishwasher soaps. The cupboards are filled with attractive stoneware and glassware that sets a lovely up-north table.
We think we have hit the happy spot with guests needs for the kitchen. Do let us know if we have missed something we love to keep our kitchens fully equipped.

We are part of the Windsong Cottages that are 26 upscale, hand-crafted town homes in a peaceful valley just as you enter Beaver Bay, MN. This is a premier residential town home community that is aesthetically landscaped and well maintained. It is a quiet, friendly residential community and only a few of us rent our homes out to defray some of the costs.
SHARED USE BUILDING
We have a shared use building with a pool and sauna. Pool (open Memorial day to New Year’s Day) while the Sauna is open Year round.
FANTASTIC LOCATION ---- TIME TO ACTIVITIES
Our vacation home is centrally located just off Minnesota scenic North Shore drive - Highway 61 and is surrounded by some of the premier vacation state park destinations in Minnesota. The closest park being Split Rock Lighthouse which is one of the most visited and photographed lighthouses in the nation! It is hard to beat our location for travelers who want to be centrally located and capture “all” the shore has to offer.
We think you will agree, due to the nature of the shores length, if you are too far northeast or southwest you get trapped into only seeing part of the shore when you visit, but our location meets the need’s of the travelers who wants to see it all. Or, remain in this beautiful section of the shore and enjoy the many premier Minnesota favorite destinations near us.
