Description

Location: Grand Marais

Baslager, which in Swedish means "Base Camp", is a private and peaceful home located on Pike Lake Road. This two bedroom, one and a half bathroom can accommodate up to 6 people. The open living and dining area will let you and your family spend more time together. A movie night with a wood burning fireplace will be the perfect combination for you to relax after a long day exploring the North Shore. Even better, you can watch as many movies as you want because this place has Netflix. 

Relax and enjoy the woods with a nice barbecue and fire. Baslager has patio furniture and a charcoal grill located in the garage and you are more than welcome to use them (they will have to be returned to their original place upon departure). If it is an adventure that you seek, consider Baslager, your "Base Camp" for your next getaway.  Pike Lake is only a couple of miles away from this home. Superior Hiking Trail, Cascade River, Cascade River State Park and many other attractions can be experienced in this area. Judge C.R. Magney State Park and High Falls, located thirty minutes away, as well as the Gunflint Trail, add to the many activities.  Enjoy fishing, hunting, and blueberry picking in the summer and ice fishing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing in the winter. So many things to do and so many places to explore. 

This home has access to the Superior Hiking Trail, a trail from the cabin winds through the property (marked with red dots on trees) and connects to the Superior Hiking Trail just north of the "Cook County Rd 45" bridge.

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.
