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.
In addition to the magical hygge vibe of this cabin, you can also find beauty and artistry in its architecture - a traditional Norwegian cabin with unique design twists by arctic explorer, Lonnie Dupre, and handcrafted timber frame held together with wood peg joints by local master craftsman, Peter Henrikson, of North House Folk School.
Firefly has convenient parking right next to the cabin, and it has the luxury of a sauna and fireplace.

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

Firefly provides:
A queen-size bed, 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 charcoal grill, 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!).

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.
