I am located at the end of a dead end road, surrounded by pines and some birch in the center of a 4 acre lot in Beaver Bay MN. There is partial lake view from the studio windows which is on the 2nd floor of a detached garage. Very quiet on my property as there is no drive by traffic and it is secluded from the rest of the block. If you're traveling to visit the sights and explore on the North Shore and need a place to wind down, sleep at the end of the day this is the place to be!
“I was backpacking with friends and we needed a place to stay after a long day. Andy responded very quickly and had the place ready on short notice. When we arrived Schatzi (his very friendly German Shepard) came and said hello, followed by Andy. He was very welcoming and asked if we needed anything. The place was very clean and a great spot to stay if you are visiting the north shore.”
Applegate Cottage is an adorable cottage right on Highway 13 in Herbster, WI - the gateway to the abundant orchards and wineries of Bayfield, and the Apostle Islands - all just half an hour away. A very short walk to beautiful Lake Superior, located on the Lake Superior Circle Tour. Enjoy kayaking, or explore the sea/ice caves. One hour from the infamous Birkie Trail. There is absolutely no better place to enjoy any season of the year!
“Holly was great with communication from my initial inquiries prior to booking all the way until check-out. As soon as you pull into the driveway you are greeted by an inviting cottage with a screened in second story porch, front deck patio area where you can enjoy the clean outdoor air or a table with a chair you can relax with your morning coffee. When you enter the cottage you walk into an open family room with plenty of natural light, a sitting area, and a reading area under the steps with a fainting couch or rocker to relax or play on the game table next to the electric fireplace. There is a large selection of books to pick from and enjoy. The kitchen is open to the living room and offers a long homemade wooden table for meals or playing games. The kitchen is stocked with coffee and snacks, which are nice to wake up to every morning. The full downstairs bathroom and washer and dryer are also nice to have. Upstairs are two bedrooms that are separated by a door. There is also another large sized full bathroom upstairs that is separated from one of the bedrooms by a sliding barn door. The decor is very updated, stylish and well kept. The area is great as you are a short walk from Lake Superior and the nice and quiet beach. There is a cool antique store and good restaurant just down the road. You are between Port Wing and Cornucopia. Port Wing is seven miles west and Cornucopia is eight miles to the east, which also has some cool businesses. Apostle Islands are also very close. I highly recommend this hidden gem.”
My place is between Split Rock Lighthouse and Tettegouche State Park. The Superior Hiking Trail and Gitchi Gami bike trail are within 1/2 mile of our back door. We are right on the ATV/Snowmobile Trail spur. Gardens and grounds are shared with us and include a picnic table and fire pit. Trails on the hillside lead to a Lake viewing bench with 180' views. The private apartment has beautiful views of the Lake--especially grand are the early mornings for viewing the sunrise over the Lake.
“We very much enjoyed our stay! Janet's place was very welcoming and comfortable! The check in process was very easy for us. The place was very clean, quiet, and had everything that we needed during our stay, including some great books on hiking around the SHT and other surrounding state parks. The location was great for accessing the SHT, Tettegouche State Park, and George H Crosby Manitou State Park. Overall, we were very impressed with this place and would highly recommend it to others. Thank you again!”
