Description

Location: Grand Marais

This Swedish-themed home is located in a beautiful setting near one of the North Shore’s most iconic rivers. Baslager, which in Swedish means ‘base camp,’ is a charming two bedroom home that can accommodate up to six people. With two spaciously designed levels and one-and-a-half bathrooms, there’s plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the good life in this majestic setting.

The master bedroom and guest bedroom both feature queen beds. The guest bedroom includes a twin bunk bed as well. In addition, the main level living room is equipped with a queen sized sleeper sofa.

Located just footsteps from the Cascade River, this home’s open living and dining area allows for comfort and a sense of place in the North Woods. A wood burning stove keeps the house warm even on the coolest of evenings. In fact, in many ways, the cooler outside the better as few things feel more comforting than a steadily-burning wood stove near the North Shore.

When it comes to embracing all things outdoors at Minnesota’s grandest ‘base camp,’ be sure to explore the secret path through the property that connects to the legendary Superior Hiking Trail. Cascade River State Park and many other popular outdoor attractions are located downriver from the property. In addition, one of Minnesota’s clearest and cleanest bodies of water, Pike Lake, is found just down the road. Pike Lake is an amazing fishery, highly regarded by local residents and the fortunate visitors who discover its treasured waters. Enjoy hiking, fishing and blueberry picking in the summer, and ice fishing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing in the winter. There are literally endless outdoor opportunities for all levels and interests to enjoy.

In addition to the beautiful wilderness setting, the town of Grand Marais is approximately 10 miles away and offers excellent dining and shopping opportunities. With a bustling downtown and live music available on many summer evenings, Grand Marais offers the perfect balance to the pristine setting where Baslager stands nestled near the banks of the legendary Cascade River.

Tami was great! The majority of the process was automated so Tami was the only human I interacted with.

I really liked the location! The view of the cliff side was an added touch. I appreciated how the owner cut a path in the back of his property to the Superior Hiking Trail. I can tell the cabin is relatively new (exterior wise). I don't understand the sealing of the front door. Why not just get a properly sealed front door over putting caulking (or whatever that was) along the seams of the door. I appreciate having the wifi. It would have been nice if we could have added apps to the Roku so we could have watched youtube, DirecTV Now and others. The fire pit is in kind of an odd spot and is tiny but we made it work. The firepit Works well for a small party but you can only sit on one side of it, so thankfully the wind wasn't blowing in our face. The concrete floors throughout the whole first level was something I hadn't seen before. Heating the floors was a nice touch and helped ease the coldness of concrete floors. The place is functional. I don't know if I would call that main level couch a pull out as it's not a traditional pullout (and not very comfortable).I got the impression that this cabin is temporary until they build the main place. The interior seemed very pieced together. All in all, it was a warm place to rest our head and was conveniently located close to the woods. I imagine once they build their main cabin, it is going to be a sweet location.

Location is lovely and secluded but nicely close to Grand Marais and local attractions. Home is adorable and comfortable. Love that Netflix was available after a long day of hiking. Kitchen is well equipped. Home was clean and tidy. I loved the Nordic feel to it. We had a wonderful vacation!

We enjoyed the location of the homeclose to Grand Marais and good skiing and snowshoeing. We stayed during a time with challenging temperatures and the wood stove kept us toasty.
