Firefly is a beautiful new (2019) rustic cabin on 2 acres of private land w/parking ~ and sauna! Surrounding windows offer views of pines & a glimmer of Lake Superior.
Perfect for solo adventures & couples willing to pack-in/pack-out. There isn't a cleaner. Your ability to 'leave it as you found it' is fundamental to maintaining lower-cost & a healthy space for the next folks who are seeking a peaceful place to rest, create and rejuvenate. Near Superior Hiking Trail, Coho/Bluefin Bay, Lutsen.

The space
Firefly is a newly built (2019), beautifully crafted, one-room timber frame cabin on 2-acres of private land. The 16’x16' log cabin has all-surrounding windows and glimmer-sized views of Lake Superior and pine forest, specially designed and built by arctic explorer, Lonnie Dupre. Convenient Parking - right next to the cabin! And a sauna to warm you up!

You provide :
Queen Sheets.
Towels (kitchen, bathing).
Pack-in/Pack-out: So, 'Leave it as you found it' (clean and take garbage with you).

Firefly provides: a queen-size bed with mattress pad, blankets, pillows, a kitchen equipped for cooking (2 burner electric stove, mini fridge, full kitchen dishes/utensils/pots/pans, a toaster oven, garbage bags/foil/etc.), a dining/work table, two lounge chairs, an indoor gas fireplace with a thermostat, an outdoor grill with deck and camping chairs, a fire pit, and a sauna with bucket shower.
Water: Well water is available on the land for drinking/cooking/cleaning - you fill and carry 2-gallon water jugs provided for you.
There's also a clean, cute outhouse with 30 feet of the cabin (with heat lamp linked to a flip switch inside the cabin and yoga-mat toilet seat to prevent a frozen bum during the wintertime!).

Where you’ll be

Tofte, Minnesota, United States

While this is a perfect cozy cabin to tuck into, it’s also a prime little spot for jumping off into adventure!
It is within walking distance of Bluefin Bay Resort and Restaurant, where you can access Lake Superior's Public walkways along the water, including a stunning rocky beach, as well as enjoy happy hour/dinner/seasonal fire pits. Also 2 blocks from Coho Cafe where there's breakfast/lunch/dessert. Also, the General Store on the corner is a combination gas station/liquor store with a stocked grocery store with meat/fish/produce. This little Firefly cabin is just off of Sawbill Trail, the road leading to Boundary Waters Canoe Area, 1.5 mi from the Superior Hiking Trail, 2 blocks from the Superior biking trail, Carlton Peak and other hikes, and 20 miles from Lutsen Ski resort.

Hello! I was a dancer in a company for 15 years, and upon retirement I decided to create this beautiful, cozy, eco-friendly spot and share it with others. My grand dream was to create a larger artist retreat - but living on an artist's budget I needed to start small. And sometimes small is better - efficient and affordable for those who live with the values of needing less 'stuff', and those who know how to find (and create) magic in nature and a peaceful space.
