New timber frame cabin only 4 miles from Grand Marais. It is the perfect distance to feel in the woods but still run to town whenever you choose. It is filled with windows to capture the amazing Lake Superior vistas plus a big skylight to stargaze and watch the Northern Lights. Grab your coffee and walk down to the pebble beach across the road or hang out on the large cedar deck and watch the waves crash on Five Mile Rock.

The space
______________
COVID POLICY:
We follow AirBnB's Enhanced Cleaning Process very seriously and also require that our guests bring their own bedding and linens such as pillows, blankets, sheets (queen mattress), bath and kitchen towels. A mattress protector is provided and MUST be used (it has been rotated and washed to the highest possible temperature)
______________

Our cabin is located in a 10 acre parcel nested in between evergreen trees and gorgeous Lake Superior. The property is full of wildlife, birds, butterflies, wild flowers and wild berries. It is the perfect spot for a couple looking for a romantic and peaceful getaway, or a single person in search of quietude.

→ CABIN:
The 16'x20' cabin was built in 2014. The white pine timbers that compose the frame were locally and sustainably logged, sawed and treated by us, the owners. It has 8 huge windows and a cathedral ceiling, making this tiny home very airy, elegant and modern. It has been designed with 2 people in mind, and although we don't encourage more than two, it can accommodate a party of 4 in a very cozy way.

→ LOFT:
The open loft has a huge skylight for stargaze and it can be accessed by a ships ladder. There is a floor queen mattress and a TV with a DVD player to snuggle in when you can't stargaze because the clouds have covered the stars. Please note that this is a sleeping loft and the ceiling is low.

→ KITCHEN:
The kitchen has full size appliances, doug fir cabinets, blue quartz countertop and a black walnut bar top with two bar stools. It is a beautiful place to cook your meals and enjoy the lake view. It has a fridge and freezer, 4 burner electric stove with oven, coffee maker, blender and all needed cooking and baking utensils.

→ BATHROOM
The bathroom is truly spa like: beautiful, spacious and airy. It has cedar wood paneling, beach pebble shower floor, a white vessel sink and two closets.

→ ENTERTAINMENT:
There is a TV and DVD player on the loft and a TV with an Apple TV in the living room. Please bring your own credentials to access channels on Apple TV.

→ SAUNA:
Andrew finished our 10x14 sauna in 2019. It has cedar paneling and a wood burning stove, a nice size changing area, a large window in the sauna room overlooking Lake Superior and a nice porch to cool off and enjoy the view. The sauna is available from November until March. More info, rules and tricks can be found on our website.

→ OUTSIDE:
Outside, the fire pit overlooks Lake Superior and the vegetable garden, and it is conveniently located by the picnic table. It is the perfect spot for an evening bonfire. The garden is located only a few steps away from the cabin and you are welcome to pick veggies for your dinner. Oh, and keep an eye out for all the bald eagles! The big tall spruce tree on the edge of the cliff overlooking the lake is the hangout area for these beautiful birds. It is basically guaranteed that you will see one or a couple hanging out on the three and being harassed by crows and seagulls.

Guest access
Guests are welcome to access the entire cabin, deck, fire pit, charcoal grill, organic garden, grassy areas and sauna (available November-March)

Other things to note
→ All guests must fill out a registry form upon check-in complying with MN STATUTE 2018​ 327.10​.

→ Please be extremely cautious when accessing the loft and while using it. The ladder is very steep and will require body awareness and caution. Use handrail.

→ Our driveway is steep and can be icy and slippery during cold months. A 4/AWD vehicle is highly encouraged and in the event that you can't make it up the driveway, you are fully responsible to remove your vehicle and free up the driveway immediately.

→ Please be mindful that we live full time at our property. Closeness to nature and solitude are a couple of the reasons why we chose to settle here and we will do our best to extend that to you during your visit; however, we do reserve the right to work, maintain and enjoy our home. We lead very busy lives, specially in the Summer and we are in and out of our home often. Our home is near the cabin but it faces its North and windowless side, which keeps the cabin private and maintain an unobstructed views of Lake Superior. Please see photos for reference.

→ There is an utility room and storage area in the crawlspace below the cabin that we may need to access at times. We do not need to enter the cabin if/when we need to access it and we do our best to let you know before hand.

→ We do reserve the right to enter the cabin if we ever find a reason to do so. (It has never happened and we hope it never will.)

→ The Northwoods is full of wildlife and bugs. Please be respectful of the animals you will see on our property. Spring and Summer are heavy bug season and you will have to deal with mosquitos, occasional spiders and cluster flies. We do what we can to minimize flies around the cabin during fly season, but some years are worse than others and they may come regardless of our efforts.

Simone was born and raised on the south shores of Brazil and Andrew is a true born Grand Marais local (with the red beard and all). Long story short, we met while traveling, got married and moved back to Andrew’s hometown where we built our home. We love sharing our little slice of Lake Superior's north shore with our guests. Traveling has been and will always be a natural and constant piece of our journey as a couple. We still have many places in our bucket list and many plans to cross them off soon. It has been a beautiful trip to meet and host travelers through AirBnB and we hope this community will continue as strong and tight, for many years to come. - Simone, Andrew and Lua
