We had another fabulous fall stay at Loon Lodge on Lake Superior.  

Patrick & Nancy

“We had another fabulous fall stay at Loon Lodge on Lake Superior. We really enjoy going in the November timeframe because it is so quiet both at the Loon Lodge condo but also hiking in the woods right nearby. At check in, everything in the condo was immaculate and it was easy for us to instantly transition into the relaxation mode. We really appreciated the equipment upgrade in the condo to the new SMART TV system that allowed us to stream our Netflix and Prime Vide favorites.”

Overview of The Cabin and Lake Superior

Lake Superior

superior2Looking 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.

superior1The Home

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.

Sleeping Options

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 of Lake Superior 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!
