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.

Members were very accessible to our needs.
We stayed at Water and Woods for 2 days in July, 2019. The home is absolutely beautiful, and well kept up. Also the views of Lake Superior are stunning! Finally all that is needed for such a stay (kitchen items, bathroom things, etc.) were well supplied. This is a definite repeat property for us.

good. not problems at all.
The location is fabulous on Lake Superior. Hear the waves at night. View the lake during the day on 2 sides of home with large windows. Inside was lovely. Also very private which is what we were looking for. Love this place and may return next year.

Very ways to work with. Always had a quick response to any questions I had. Thanks for everything!
My family and I travel to Duluth annually so that I can run in Grandmas Marathon. We always stay in cabins on the lake. I came across this rental completely by accident and was drawn to it because of the property description. We were blown away by the beauty of the house and view. I loved the complete kitchen so that I could prepare healthy and delicious meals that we could enjoy lakeside. I was surprised by just how well the house was supplied. We definitely could have packed far less. How nice to be able to throw in a load of laundry at the end of the day. It was luxuriant to be able to soak in epsoms before and after the race. We loved being able to put in a movie or listen to cds as we unwound after an active day outside. Did I mention the view and the feeling like you had no neighbors while still being close to the attractions? The one fault of the cabin amenities is the size and comfort of the beds in the extra room. My kids were literally rolling out of their beds at night, especially my 14 year old son. If you are going to have twin beds they should at least be the longer ones. The fact that we loved this cabin so much speaks volumes as we own a very different type of cabin ourselves that we escape to any chance we get.

Team was great to work wtih. There was a potential problem with the septic system and they notified us before arriving, offfered alternative options and even called to check during our stay that everything was okay.
The house was great. The location with views of the lake from two sides of the cabin was amazing.

Your team is always helpful and easy to work with.
We had a short but enjoyable stay - my husband was ill and weren't able to make the trip up until Wednesday (original check in day was Monday). The lake gave us its very best on the 3 days were there. Wednesday - calm and peaceful - sunny and warm. Thursday - choppy but blue - windy but warm. Friday - wind and high waves - being right up on rocks, the view from this cabin gave us an excellent show. We had never seen anything like it.

Had a wonderful time with my wife and my two girls. My youngest loved being by the water. And the waves were such a sight to see. On our last day. The waves got so big that when it crashed against the wall. It would splash up about 20ft in the air. Am planning on booking this place again next summer. This time for a week!!
