We appreciated the large dual sink vanity in the master bedroom. The king bed in the master bedroom was very comfy and both my wife and I slept very well.

A beautiful home with comfortable bedrooms; a well appointed kitchen, especially important because we love to cook; breath-taking views of a lake and sunrise that wowed us every day; a beach we explored and rock hunted several times; and a convenient location to the best of the North Shore. We hiked to several waterfalls, especially loved the Caribou River, Temperance, and Cascade Falls, and the Pigeon River at the Canadian border. Be sure to catch the 20 minute movie at the Heritage Museum at the Grand Portage Reservation. We got lucky to be here for the Plein Air art festival in Grand Marais. The Angry Trout Cafe there is not to be missed! We had a rainy day which gave us time to turn on the fireplace, watch the lake (more like an ocean!), read, play games, cook and just enjoy our company.

Spectacular home on the Northshore!  

Chris H.

“We love staying in this area near Tofte, and this is by far our favorite of all of them! The house is clean and spacious. The views of the lake are spectacular! You can hear the waves rolling in while relaxing on one of the decks. We had four adults and three children and had plenty of room. We love exploring the Northshore and this location allows you to get to everything. Split Rick lighthouse, Gooseberry Falls, the Temperance River, Lutsen, and Grand Marais. It was also nice to just spend time on the private beach enjoying Lake Superior. Our trip was highlighted be an amazing double rainbow over Superior while we were skipping rocks and watching Canadian Geese swimming. Other features we appreciated were the giant tub in the master, the laundry room, and a garage attached to the home. The host was available if needed, but everything was perfect and prepared for us to enjoy our trip. We highly recommend this location! Unless you’re camping in the woods this is the perfect place to enjoy the Northshore! You will be very happy!”

We enjoyed a place nearby for breakfast – I think it was called the Coho Bakery, or something like that. It’s an excellent breakfast place.

Excellent Stay  

A F. Massachusetts

“We had a great experience with this rental. The value was excellent as compared to other nearby similar properties. The kitchen is well-stocked with all essential cooking items and is supplied with coffee, hot chocolate, some spices, foil, etc. We had a minor issue that was attended to immediately by the owner. The views are fantastic and you can walk down to the shore. The place is clean and well-maintained. We will definitely book again if we have the opportunity to return to the north shore. We rented as a couple so had the extra bedrooms locked for a discounted rate. It was more than spacious for the two of us.”

Relaxing stay at a beautiful home  

Julie L.

“Our family of four stayed here over the New Year’s holiday. We enjoyed the home immensely. The views are beautiful, along with the home itself. It was clear the owners have taken great care to have nearly everything you could think you’d need while being away from home. The kitchen is completely stocked with toaster, blender, coffee maker (including coffee beans, cream and sugar), sugar and spices, bakeware, cookware, and even an air popcorn popper. They’ve also included shampoo, conditioner and soap in every shower, along with a hair dryer in two of the bathrooms. There is a large DVD and book library, as well as some board and card games. The home is beautifully decorated and the furniture is comfortable. It’s obvious thought was put into this effort. We really enjoyed the gas fireplace. They even allowed our dog to join us, at a reasonable rate, which we appreciated and was a deciding factor in choosing this rental. The only drawback we experienced, which is minor and wouldn’t have been an issue for my husband and myself, is that the television sets are older and don’t allow for the use of gaming devices, which was a big deal for our teenage sons. Had we known this ahead of time, we would’ve brought our TV with us. Again, minor in the larger scheme of things.

The complex itself was very quiet, even though we know we had neighbors. This was paramount in being able to really relax away from the business of the cities and our day-to-day lives!
The owner even stepped up and bought us dinner at a local restaurant of our choosing when he found out the cleaners wouldn’t have the home ready for us at the specified time on the day of our arrival. This was relayed to us in a timely manner and while it was a small hiccup, it was handled efficiently.

I suppose the only con I can think of is you only have access to a certain number of bedrooms and bathrooms based on the size of your group, unless you pay an additional fee to open up all rooms. I don’t know if this is a common practice throughout the VRBO rental community, but for the price of the home for the week I personally think all rooms should be accessible and included in the rental fee.

It was a wonderfully relaxing stay in a beautiful North Shore home and we would recommend staying here. We hope to return in the future. Thank you, Rick, for opening up this beautiful home to others!”

Serenity  

Wayne P.

“n recent years my wife and I have been coming here during the quiet late fall season. The weather is brisk and clear. We hike the shore or the trails in the woods. As the sun shines into the home we read and enjoy the gas fireplace — sometimes with background music from the radio or CDs. Many times we read on the deck overlooking the lake with the sun warming us on a clear fall day.

The home provides all the comforts; the kitchen is well stocked with quality utensils, there’s a Jacuzzi in the master bedroom, and the furniture provides quality comfort. If it’s an inclement day we have a warm fire with the push of a button and choose a movie from the dozens of DVDs available. When we feel the need, we hop in our car (parked in an attached garage!) and absorb the beauty of the North Shore of Lake Superior and explore nearby restaurants or towns.

After our stay we leave refreshed and relaxed. As time permits we hope to visit during the other seasons and savor what the North Shore of Lake Superior has to offer, e.g., the convenient down hill and cross country skiing.”

“This is my 3rd time renting this townhouse and I’ll keep coming back. If you haven’t been to the North Shore, you are missing out! The view of Lake Superior from this home is truly incredible. This was also the perfect time to see the pretty color changes in the trees. I sat on the deck for hours reading and watching the waves (there is a deck off the master bedroom and a main level one). Talk about peaceful! Very quiet area, which is what I want from a vacation away from the busy metro. This is a spacious townhouse, always very clean (I’m a neat freak, so I appreciate this!), fully stocked kitchen with everything you would need to cook a meal, including a grill in the garage. I enjoyed the added touch of plush robes in the master closet and complimentary coffee, hot chocolate and popcorn. Sometimes it’s the small things that matter. 🙂 Thanks for another great stay!”

“Beautiful! Condo is spotless and has everything you would ever need. The Gitchi Gammi trail is right at the end of the driveway and goes into Tofte (about 6 miles). For hikers, Oberg & Leveux mountains are just north and of course there’s the Superior Hiking Trail. Cascade & Temperance State Parks are nearby and Lutsen is right up the road. We were a bunch of 60 year old women who bought limitless ride passes … spent the whole day there (to the amusement – and probably amazement – of the guys running the thing.) I guess I’d say it’s perfect for everyone and anyone (based on who I’d recommend it for).”

“We enjoyed such a magical Christmas 2014 in Lutsen MN with our family of 6. It started with awes as we walked into the home. We were amazed at how clean and comfortable everything felt. It is decorated exceptionally well to fit the “up-north” surroundings. The view from the master bedroom suite out onto Lake Superior is priceless! You can even hear the waves crashing off the rocky shoreline on a windy evening. The kitchen was fully equipped with virtually anything you need in pots/pans/utensils etc. They even have a nice touch with a little coffee/hot cocoa tray as a courtesy on the counter. The location is 4 miles from the base of the ski hill and the entrance to Lutsen Lodge. It actually feels quiet and secluded being a little ways from that area. I highly suggest this location to anyone who may be considering a trip to Lutsen. They even allow pets so we could include our two golden retrievers during the Holiday! Thanks Rick!”

Beautiful inside and out!  

Jeanne Caledonia, MN

“My friend and I stayed here at the end of June. We chose this place because it was located in the middle of all the North Shore State parks and for it’s beautiful view! We couldn’t have been more satisfied with the ammenities of the home and the cleanliness. The 2 decks and patio offered a perfect view of the lake. It was an easy walk down to the shore and enjoyed looking at rocks and watching the waves. We will for sure make a fire by the lake next time we stay.We were unfortunate to have rain and fog while we were there but, were lucky to have chosen a place that was warm, cozy, and provided plenty of things to do. As luck had it the sun came out our last morning and we enjoyed breakfast on the deck. The sunrise was a forever memory! The homes was equipped with everything, the beds were comfortable and we will for sure be back!”

“In the past we have stayed at the Lutsen resort. We have been coming to the Lutsen area for 10 years. We found Rick’s place last year and thought it was time to try something different. WOW did we hit the JACK POT!! The property is 10 out of 10! This is truly a turn key vacation for your family. We found our new vacation hot spot. Trust us. We are a family of five ( plus Bert-our dog) and and the kids still talk about, they talked so much on the way home in the suburban,we booked our next years trip on the way home in the car. Thank you so much for helping us fabulous vacation memories with our kids and family!

“We had such a wonderful, relaxing stay. The home is beautiful and the setting even more-so. This was definitely the get-away experience we were looking for. It was still chilly in April, but I bundled up and watched the stormy lake on the deck, only to wake up and do the same in the morning on a bright sunny morning and a calm lake. Absolutely gorgeous. Friends from Spain will be coming and I will definitely point them in the direction of renting this property as well as revisit it ourselves in the near future!”

Wonderful House with Breathtaking view  

Diana Otley , Iowa, USA

“We had a fabulous time in the house at Aspenwood ! Your home is beautiful and very relaxing . The view is breathtaking ! I enjoyed the sound of the Lake Superior waves rolling in and relaxing me to sleep every night . Since it was chilly while we were visiting , we very much enjoyed having a cozy fire in the living room fireplace while we played “UNO ” on the table in front of it. My son also enjoyed the fact that he could down to the lower family room and have ” his own space” when he wanted it. A great amenity was being able to cook our own meals and do our own laundry while still getting to enjoy the house. There were so many gorgeous waterfalls and trails to hike close by the house. Grand Marais is only a short drive away with all it’s enticing shops and restaurants. Rick & Nancy were so kind to leave all the “extras” in the house such as shampoo, soap, coffee, popcorn , games, books, movies etc… it was thoughtful and very much appreciated. Thanks again for sharing your home with us and making a memory of a great vacation!!!!”

More amazing in person  

mikem Twin Cities

“We nearly booked our honeymoon with a big name resort nearby when my wife reminded me to check out VRBO where we found this amazing property. This town home was far more then we were looking for at a far better price. Unbelievable deal for this area.

Rick and his staff were amazing to work with. Very easy going people that make your vacation the relaxing experience you need it to be. This is not some shady individual renting out his house. Rick and his staff are more then I’ve received at 5 star resorts. They make it easy for you.

As far as the property, Its spotlessly clean. It looks like it was built yesterday from the way it was maintained. Its more impressive than pictures can ever convey. You will be impressed. It has all the little extra detail features you never expected. We had occasional snow overnight during our stay so the garage turned into a great thing.

Overall, great people, great place and great experience. We will be returning. We strongly recommend this property to friends and family heading to the area. It’s an unbelievable price for the huge place you are renting that is loaded with all the extras.”

“Wonderful location! Spectacular view! This lovely home has two decks, and a patio overlooking the cliffs, and shore of Lake Superior. We have stayed at the Storlies’ condo on the North Shore of Lake Superior five times now, and we are looking forward to another visit this autumn. The home is large enough for the family (three adult couples) to have our own space, and yet we can gather together in the kitchen/great room, or game room/family room. It is roomy, and yet has a cozy feel. For visitors who love to cook, the kitchen is very well equipped with large and small appliances, utensils, and dishes. The home is very clean, and well maintained. Rick, his assistant Liz, and the staff in Lutsen are friendly, and make sure the stay is pleasant.”

The home was very nice and had all the comforts of our own home right to the coffee filters for the coffee maker. The views of the lake were amazing and we loved to sit on the deck and enjoy the view. The neighbors were very nice and I enjoyed watching her work on that hill side cleaning up the bushes!. I would recommend this home to anyone wanting to spend a relaxing week with family or friends. The only negative thing was on the first day, our code to get into the property was wrong. We call the local contact and in 15 or 20 minutes he showed up and let us in. Thanks Rick for letting us use your home to create some wonderful memories Scott & Libby”

Outstanding

“Everything was awesome. We got to enjoy all 4 bedrooms and baths. All was exactly as described. Photos look like the ones I took. Very clean and well-maintained. Had an issue with a bathroom that locked itself (??), but Rick returned our call with instructions with how to get the door open. We’ve already told all of our relatives about the property and are planning to return sometime soon. We were able to get pictures of the eagle out back. Moon rise over the water was just as spectacular as the sun rise. Temperatures were perfect – upper 50’s, but we left the windows open all 3 days. Only bad thing was that we didn’t win the Powerball and had to come home to 90 degree temperatures. If you want to relax with all the amenities of home and then some, this is the place to stay. Thanks, Rick.”

“Spent 3 nights here on a sister’s weekend (5 of us between ages 30-60) and all of us were overjoyed with this townhome. So clean, neat, comfortable, relaxing, user-friendly, easy to find, pure enjoyment of nature out the back door. Everything was in working order, entry directions from owner were very thorough and easy to follow, and little things pleasantly surprised us that we hadn’t found in other units rented around the country (i.e., three types of coffee beans, filters, and even creamer!), lots of movies, books, games, and music CDs there to enjoy if you have the time. A bald eagle gave us lots of pleasure to watch right off the balconies on the Lake Superior cliff out the back door, and a pair of loons down below as well. Full moon over the lake right outside the bedroom window was heavenly as well. Just loved everything about this place and would love to come back! Not a single complaint.

Amazing Weekend Getaway!  

Anton Plymouth

First before I even get to the property itself I’d like to complement the renter (Rick) and his staff. Super professional and so easy to work with. Quickly answered any questions we had and went above and beyond in recommended some activities for our group to do.

We visited this amazing property in mid January. Our group consisted of 7 adults and one dog. Upon arrival we were immediately impressed with the place. It’s exactly as advertised if not even better. The place was clean from top to bottom. I think the kitchen was more stocked than my own house! The house allowed for each of use to have our own private spaces (bedrooms, bathrooms) and then two great living rooms for us all to hang out.

The place is a short 7 minute drive to Lutsen Mountain and just under a half hour to Grand Marais. It was not your typical Minnesota January as far as snow fall goes but this allowed us to explore the shore a little around the place which was really cool!

Oh, one last thing…The View. I can’t tell you how amazing it was to wake up every morning as see the great lake. I don’t know if that would ever get old.

Once again I highly recommend and would revisit this place in a heartbeat!

Aspenwood townhome experience  

Jason New Richmond, WI

“My wife and I stayed at this townhome for 2 nights at the end of November. It goes to show there really is no bad time of year to vacation. The summer months are quite touristy along the North Shore so this was a great time for us to still see the sites and get the more private feeling as the area was pretty empty of people. But back to the home itself. We loved it ! It was so big. There are 3 big levels and for just two people, we didn’t even get to spend any time in the lower level, which was just as nice as the others, but you can only be in one room at a time. The bedroom was a dream. Huge. Nice big walk-in closet and a jacuzzi right there in the room as well. Two decks to enjoy. I personally took advantage of viewing the night sky from the upper deck and was really awed by the stars in the sky mixed with the sound of Superior’s waves crashing in. I don’t get that at my house. The kitchen was beautiful and everything had a “new” feeling to it. Even the drawers rolled out so smooth like a tool chest with ball bearings. (wrench-heads will know what I mean here.) I was impressed with the attention to detail throughout the whole experience. Like having lots of movies and cd’s to entertain you, a coffee machine that uses real coffee beans, (first time for me), with 3 choices of beans to choose from in the freezer and note cards by the coffee machine explaining in detail how to use the coffee maker. Stuff like that. And let me not forget the site of Superior watching the sun rise eating breakfast at the table, watching a ship go by. What a great experience! We’ll be back, thank you!”

Fantastic Stay

“We stayed last December for our honeymoon and it was a great find. The price was incredibly affordable for having an entire townhouse to stay in and it was a beautiful place. Everything was updated and very comfortable. The views were also amazing. There was a deck/patio on every level to look out over Lake Superior and what a view it was. We were able to watch the sunset every night and had some great viewing of the stars as well. Additionally, it was very close to many great hiking trails. The only dislike was that it was not cleaned the day we arrived. However, we called when we got there to say it was not cleaned and within an hour or two a couple ladies stopped by to clean the whole townhouse. We were even compensated for a dinner for our troubles! We would definitely stay here again.”

The kitchen and living area on the main level is gorgeous and large. So is the downstairs. The garage is a huge plus. The deck is one of the best parts. There is a hill in the back yard where you can see beautiful scenary and wildlife. Appliances, lighting, and atmosphere are great. I have nothing negative to say about this place.

Beautiful Views  

Becky Freeport, IL

 

“Our group of 3 couples stayed here for 4 nights at the end of July. The location was perfect. We enjoyed cocktails on the balcony overlooking Lake Superior, viewing the birds (bald eagles, loons, gulls, hummingbirds, mergansers) and evening walks along the bike trail next to the lake. The accommodations were lovely with adequate community space, but still privacy for our three couples in each bedroom/bathroom suite. Admiring the Milky Way from the upper deck was an unexpected surprise.

There were many things in the area that our group enjoyed. We were delighted with the waterfalls at the nearby state parks: Gooseberry Falls, Cascade, and Grand Portage. Do not miss the Split Rock Lighthouse, the Lutsen Mountain Tram or the Grand Portage National Monument.

We also spent a day in Grand Marais and were delighted by our lakeshore hike along Artist Point, behind the Coast Guard Station. The Angry Trout restaurant was a real treat, as was our drive through the wilderness on the gunflint Trail.

I would gladly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a relaxing break along the north shore of Lake Superior. Our group truly had a superior stay and hope to come back again.”

Awesome home away from home with an AWESOME view  

Bren St.Paul

“My husband and I have stayed in this unit twice once in the winter and once in the summer. My husband and I along with our adult girls and husbands spent the weekend in this great place int he winter. We went skiing on Lutsen Mountain had some great times cooking in the wonderful kitchen and playing games on the huge kitchen table and just relaxed. We decided to go back in the summer just my husband and I and spent 3 nights at the property. WOW the views are so amazing from the main level in-side and out onthe deck and from the master bedroom in-side and on the bedroom deck (Wow) . We went hiking on Lutsen Mountain what a different view in the summer. I have told many of my friends and trust they will love it has much as we all have. We have plans to return we love the Lutsen area and the owners of this property make it REALLY easy to rent from them they have thought of everything down to the fresh coffee beans in the freezer Thank you very much for taking pride in your home and sharing it will others.”

Aspenwood Memorial Weekend getaway  

Diane E. Burnsville

“We had a wonderful time at Aspenwood this past weekend. Even though it rained all day on Saturday there was plenty of space for all of us (6 adults and 4 kids under 2). We were able to make all our meals and eat in the well equiped kitchen/dining room. The downstairs game room was perfect for the kids to play and have space for all their toys. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and hanging out on the large deck on Sunday when the temps reached 65! Great views of the lake and wildlife! The bike trail was so close which allowed us to go for a long walk and ride with all the kids. We have already talked about going back in the fall and would recommend it to anyone!

Thanks Rick!

Diane”

Our Stay at Aspenwood  

Ron Alexandria, MN

“The entire family was impressed when we walked into Aspenwood. The spaciousness, the amenities and the breathtaking view of Lake Superior made it a perfect location to spend the week together. We found everything we needed to prepare and enjoy dinner in the comfort of the unit. We explored the trail outside our backdoor that lead to the shores of Lake Superior. There was enough room to spread out if anyone needed their space. It was a tranquil and comfortable stay we all enjoyed.

* The listing description was accurate of Aspenwood.

* The listing photos and written description of Aspenwood were entirely accurate. We greatly
enjoyed both the unit and surrounding North Shore area.

* The property, as they say in Real Estate, was turnkey condition. My wife, actually most of our
family, are fussy when it comes to cleanliness.

* Prior to our arrival, I was confident that I understood what I needed to know to began our trip from
Alexandria. When we arrived, everything went like clockwork. No problems whatsoever.

* I have already spoken with friends and realatives about Aspenwood. Everyone is impressed.

* Since we have been up in this area previously, we alwalys venture up the Gunflint Trail for sight
seeing and of course, lunch at the Trail Center Resturand. We always enjoy a stop there.

The only minor problems were that one daughter had difficulty with the TV remotes. She was used to
one remote (Harmony) for getting the TV going; some of the information in the Master Book was
outdated. (I don’t recall the exact specifics of what resturants, etc. were involved).

We had an excellent stay and we will be back next year.

Thank You,

Ron Kline”

Relaxing Girls Week  

Ruth and friends Mpls, MN

“Storlie Family, we had a fabulous, relaxing time at your home. Thanks Rick! The full kitchen supplied all we needed to make meals, full size refrigerator, and gas grill came in handy also. The view of the lake is amazing, and we enjoyed having access to walk down to the beach area also. There are plenty of things to do around the area. We hiked at nearby State Parks and saw some beautiful waterfalls, and had a picnic visited Grand Marais. If weather does not cooperate, a movie and popcorn or a good book in front of the fireplace works too.”

A relaxing vacation  

Leigh Anne Rochester, MN

“We went up for a week of snowmobiling and relaxation this last winter. The condo was well located and close to the trails my husband went on. The view of Lake Superior was wonderful and was very relaxing. We hope to make it back again sometime, possibly in the warmer months to take some time to hiking. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a private, peaceful and relaxing spot. Plus it was a bonus to be able to bring our dog with!”

From the magnificent view when you first walk in – to the 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (and let’s not forget the fully furnished kitchen & coffee bar) – we loved it!!”

April 2011 Northshore Stay  

Annette Prior Lake, MN

“We were seeking a location with grand views of the lake which would allow our dog. We found it! The views were spectacular and the town home was totally amazing. We felt at home from the moment we walked in the door. The town home was spotless and had all the amenities you could ever need! We had the great fortune to have a nightly showing of an eagle flying along the coast, beautiful moon lit nights over the lake and the amazing sound of the waves. The location is great for numerous sightseeing and adventure trips. We enjoyed our stay so much that we immediately re-booked another visit later this year!”

Our Honeymoon at Aspenwood

“It was amazing here. I felt like I was in my own home. We saw an amazing sunrise, hiked a long the shore, and took some outstanding pictures. It made for a magical honeymoon weekend with our six other friends. We would recommend this place to EVERYONE! We love it so much that we are considering buying one of the homes that are for sale. Thank you Storlies for this memorable opportunity.”

10 Stars  

Chris, Kate and Ainsley Rosemount, MN

“What a wonderful stay we had during our 5 days. The house was everything advertised and was more than we could have hoped for. The location was perfect, making for easy trips to Gooseberry, Split Rock, Tettegouche, Temperance River and Cascade River State Parks and Lutsen is right next door. After days at the state parks, we could not imagine coming home to a better place. We loved going down to the shoreline during the day and listening to the waves crash on shore at night (Tuesday and Wednesday blew in big waves). The kids have all talked about how much fun they had and we will definitely be returning in the future. I can’t imaging staying anywhere else and have already recommended the house to several friends.”

Going for the Trifecta  

rob lino lakes,MN

“Your place is like a big warm welcome. Just what we’ve been looking for over the past 10 years of staying on the North Shore. Every creature comfort anyone can ask for, from the garage (big plus), gas grill, laundry, to somehting as simple as a wine opener, right at your finger tips. You don’t have to want for anything, as it’s right here. It’s like a vacation within a vacation, you just show up and you start to relax and enjoy. You don’t even have to leave your place to see wonderful sights. It’s right out your back door. But if you do venture out, everything, and I do mean everything from Resturant’s, Golf, Hiking, to Skiing is just a hop skip or jump away. WE WILL BE BACK !!!!”

Fabulous!

“We had a fabulous family get together at this beautiful townhome in Lutsen; it was everything it was advertised to be and more! Our only complaint for the stay was the skiing was a bit cold, but the home was so inviting, warm and cozy that we had no regrets spending more time there than on the slopes. We plan to ski Lutsen once more this season and plan to stay here again.”

Christmas on Lake Superior  

dennis Edina MN

“What a beautiful setting. It doesn’t get any better. Very nicely furnished and equipped townhouse that was perfect for the six of us. Kitchen was excellent and had everything we needed to prepare ourr meals. Dining area was very nice. The living area off the kitchen is the only space that was somewhat inadequate. The seating around the fireplace did not accommodate six and certainly not potentially eight. We tend to gather in one space at the end of the night and more comfy seating would have been appreciated (the heavy dining room chairs were not really comfortable). Bedromms and bathrooms were outstanding. All in all the perfect spot. I will be calling to reserve for next year.”

Home away from home  

pramberg Minneapolis

“This is our second time staying at this property, and we love it. The view from all three stories is almost nothing but lake. It feels like you are on the edge of the ocean. Our favorite part of the house is the oversized 2 person jacuzzi that you can look at the lake while you relax in the tub. It’s only a couple of miles away from Lutsen ski area, and close to Grand Marais. We had a great time, you will have a great time, everyone that stays there will have a good time.”

Our 4 night stay  

Adam S. Chicago

“The five days and four nights we spent in Lutsen not only exceeded our most hopeful expectations, they rapidly converted themselves into a treasure chest of memories we will never forget. And the greatest part is that we knew it the whole time. It’s no exaggeration to say that our most frequent topic of conversation was how amazing everything about our trip and the home turned out. The combination of the condo’s spaciousness and proximity to the lake alone were enough to provide the comfort of feeling at home while immersed in the calming wonders of the wilderness. And it’s also no exaggeration to say that we pretty much owe all that we accomplished outside the home to that awesome guest guide in the white binder.”

“Great property with an awesome view! Unfortunately the cool, rainy weather kept us from enjoying the decks, but not the restful sounds of waves lapping at the shore as we fell asleep. Had everything we needed and more for a relaxing break from stressful work. Enjoyed the fireplace ambience while watching the Twins win on satellite TV. What you see and read in the listing are just what you will get, with everything clean and well-maintained. Really appreciate the accommodations being pet-friendly as our little guy loves traveling with us. Kitchen perfect for breakfasts and snacking, but we chose to eat dinners out. Bluefin’s warm chocolate cake for dessert was the best! Thanks for sharing your North Shore retreat with us … we loved it!”

Awesome Accommodations  

SavnaRose Minneapolis, MN

“Have enjoyed the unique qualities of many North Shore rentals. However, for view, luxury, and privacy this condo is by far a 10+!! Meals on the main balcony accompanied by music of the waves below provided unsurpassed dining pleasure. Rustic but elegant furnishings were as soothing as the jacuzzi where you can soak in the warmth and the stunning expanse of the Superior shores. Dawn from the deck was well worth rising for even if you are on vacation and even though star studded skies at night tempted you to stay up til dawn! The open layout and well appointed cooking area truly lends to the joy of cooking feasts that sate the palate in the same way that these accommodations sate the soul. Yes this sounds like a rave but it’s hard not to after staying in these surroundings.”

“Every winter my college roommates and I have been going on a ski trip to various places around the country. This year was our fourth annual trip, and our first after we all graduated from college. With everyone taking new jobs and attending graduate school, we decided to take a shorter trip up to Lutsen Resort in Minnesota. The Aspenwood condo was by far the best place we’ve ever stayed at! There was plenty of room for 8 guys to all have comfortable sleeping arrangements, a large fridge for LOTS of food in the spacious kitchen, and even more room for everyone to lounge around after a great day of skiing! The pictures seen online don’t do this place justice. Not only is the condo amazing, it also has an incredible view! On top of all of that, it was well within our price range! I would highly recommend staying here for all of your adventures in and around the Lutsen area!”
