Location: Lake County, Two Harbors
Located on four acres of enchanting property at the end of charming road that winds through the forest and leads to the shores of Lake Superior, it’s no wonder we call this home Water and Woods. The home is nestled in the woods, set far enough down from Highway 61 that road noise is never an issue. Watch iron ore ships as they travel up and down Lake Superior from the comfort of your own private retreat in Lake County.
From the moment you walk through the door of Water and Woods, you are greeted by incredible views of Lake Superior. The home is literally nestled onto the shoreline of the Big Lake. In fact, you have access to 300 ft. of private lakeshore that is all yours to enjoy. You can hear and even feel the waves rolling against the ledge rock shoreline from the comfort of the living room and master bedroom. This magical setting is truly all about peace and quiet, as it is surrounded by pristine forest and some of the earth’s purest water.
The home features two bedrooms and two bathrooms on one level. The master bedroom features a wall of windows looking almost directly down on the lake, a cozy queen bed, an abundance of closet space and your own bathroom. The bathroom features a stunning clawfoot bathtub and a separate walk-in shower. The guest bedroom features two twin beds and is perfect for families or to expand the group size during your stay.
A short walk from the main house is access to the deluxe art room, featuring drawers filled with paints, colored pencils, colored papers, stickers, stencils and other creative outlets. The art room is also where both charcoal and propane BBQs are stored and we invite you to use them during your stay.
Back in the home, light a fire in the wood-burning fireplace surrounded by gorgeous crow creek stone and curl up with a book from a wonderful selection of Northland-themed books. The home features an assortment of unique decorative touches, including functional wind direction and speed meters, and a wind-up clock. This is a one-of-a-kind home, great for a family getaway year round.
As the home is located off the main Highway 61 corridor by a pleasant distance and there are no immediate neighbors, the star gazing opportunities are spectacular. This is only enhanced by our telescope that we encourage you to use and enjoy! In addition, it’s very common to see large ships passing by on Lake Superior as they carry iron ore and other loads up and down the North Shore.
During the summer, enjoy the private wooded lakefront acres to explore while being a short drive to numerous state park hiking trails. Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock Light House are both just a few miles away. In the winter, gear up and enjoy snowshoeing around the property or cross country skiing one of the local trail systems. Spirit Mountain is only 45 minutes away in Duluth and Lutsen Mountains is about 90 minutes if you are looking to take a downhill skiing day trip. The cabin is about 10 minutes from Two Harbors where you will find the Superior Hiking Trail Association Office.
Have fun while you enjoy everything that beautiful Lake County has to offer while calling Water and Woods your home away from home.
