Superhosts are experienced, highly rated hosts who are committed to providing great stays for guests.
This cozy cabin provides a perfect getaway and is a gem in all seasons, especially during the fall colors or a blowing winter storm.

Timber frame cabin built on a hilltop, on 20 acres of old growth maples. Walls of glass, a screened in porch and a wrap around deck bring the outdoors inside.

The ridge top location has spectacular views through the trees - with lake views after the leaves drop.

The property also boasts a fantastic wood fired cedar sauna - perfect for rejuvenating.

The space
The timber frame cabin is located in Hovland MN, which is 30 minutes north of Grand Marais, near the Canadian border and lake Superior.

The cabin sleeps up to 3 (1 double bed & 1 sleeping cot). Camping is an option with the wide outdoor space and screened-in porch, email for details.

The cabin is a work of art; designed and built by a local carpenter and North House Folk School instructor.  This 16' x 16' space has everything you need to slow down and reconnect with yourself, your partner and nature making it your perfect North Shore getaway.

Perfect for solo adventurers and couples willing to pack-in/pack-out drinking water and linens. There isn't running water or a cleaner. Your ability to ‘Pay it Forward’ and leave the place as you found it is fundamental to maintaining an affordable experience in a healthy space for the next folks who are seeking a peaceful place to rest and rejuvenate.  

The cabin is equipped with:
- wood sauna - 100 yards from the cabin
- outhouse
- wood stove for heating
- woodshed with ax, hatchet & bucksaw (be prepared to split your kindling)
- gaslighting & solar lighting
- 2-burner gas cooktop
- outdoor cook grill (bring your own charcoal or use kindling)
- dishes, cutlery, pots, pans, cutting board, kettle, dishwashing basin
- cooler for storing food

Folks will need to bring:
- Bedding: pillows, blanket and linens or sleeping bags
- Drinking water. There is rain barrel water for washing, but not for drinking. In winter, snow can be melted on the wood stove or gas burner for washing.
- Headlamps/flashlight to get to the outhouse and sauna and for late arrivals
