You can enjoy this traditional cedar paneled north woods chalet year round and be charmed in every season. Nordkapp, which means "North Cape" in Norwegian, is conveniently located near skiing, hiking trails, and mountain biking trails. Lutsen Mountains Ski Resort and Summer Recreation Center and the Superior National at Lutsen Golf Course are just an 8-mile drive away, which makes Nordkapp a great place to stay in every season.  Enjoy the many dining options available within a short drive of this charming and much loved Lake Superior home.

Start your morning with a cup coffee on your private Lake Superior viewing deck and watch for passing ships while listening to the waves crash against the cliffs below you. Although there is no lake access, the views from this home are absolutely breathtaking and unobstructed by other homes.  Then cap off your day with a sauna, a Scandinavian staple popular on the North Shore, and curl up in front of the wood stove in the living room for game night or a movie.

The cozy interior features a bedroom with a queen bed and 3 twin beds in the open sleeping loft.  This layout is great for families with older children or friends traveling together on a ski trip.  There is just a nice vibe when you enter Nordkapp.

At Nordkapp you are just a short drive away from the beautiful Oberg Mountain Scenic Overlook and hiking trail, a must-see during leaf changing season.  Head down the shore and check out Temperance River State Park or head up the shore and you will find Cascade River State Park - both great for hiking and enjoying some beautiful waterfalls.  The Gitchi Gami Bike Trail is nearby and runs along Highway 61.  The trail is enjoyed by bikers and walkers alike, taking a scenic ride or stroll along Lake Superior's shoreline.   The Lutsen Mountains recreation area is just 10-miles away and offers both winter and summer activities including skiing, the alpine slide, and a scenic gondola up to the Moose Mountain Summit.  Enjoy the many restaurants and live music offered year-round on the mountain, as well.   Be sure to take a day trip up to Grand Marais to enjoy the quaint town and its many small shops and unique restaurants.  Whether you've come to relax or come to explore and have an adventure, Nordkapp is a great home base!

We have rented from Cascade Vacation Rentals for quite a few years - it's always a good experience. Check in/out is convenient, the properties are well tended for, and can't beat the location (we always rent lake view/access).
We LOVED this property. The view is perfect (from both the balcony and the deck near the edge of the property) and the interior is cozy. Though we didn't require additional sleeping room, the loft would be perfect for older children or additional adults. You can easily fit an additional full or queen air mattress up there. We also enjoyed some of the "retro" (FULLY functional microwave, alarm clock, etc. from a previous era) - made us feel at home! Nice selection of DVD movies too. We would definitely stay here again.

All went well!
Neither the pictures or the description do justice to what we found at Nordkapp! We were pleasantly surprised as we drove up and saw a stand of trees on both sides of the house. Coming from the metro area, having stayed at other larger resorts on Superior, renting a stand alone house for us was a first, and we were thrilled with the privacy! With windows and a deck off the front, the view was incredible! We had coffee each morning on the small lower deck as we watched the sunrise. At night, we stood on the deck and saw a blanket of stars one can only see from a vantage point like the one we had at Nordkapp! We loved the cabin-like interior and feel with the knotty pine and woodstove, complete with lighting that created the perfect cozy setting after hiking all day. From a cheese grater to a bottle opener to a keurig, all the necessities were there. Throw in some games, a TV/DVD player, CD player, binoculars, and the extras were there as well. The kitchen included a dishwasher and granite countertops, so it was the best rustic north shore setting and feel with the modern comforts of home!

The house and location were lovely. Lake Superior was beautiful, and we could stare at it all we wanted from the house and from the little lookout. We loved the wood stove, but weren't interested in the sauna. We did have a little trouble with the icy driveway. I'm not complaining, as I know this is a North Shore fact of life, but you might include parking hints in your property info, and maybe a local number for a pull out. (We got out on our own by using various techniques learned over a lifetime of driving in Minnesota.) The Internet wasn't working, but a call to the office led to very quick help. Thanks! The only kitchen items we would have liked would be a drainer and maybe a dishpan to allow for handwashing dishes more easily.

My friends and I had a wonderful long weekend stay at Nordkapp! We especially appreciated how well equipped the kitchen was since we cooked all of our meals there. The photos were fairly accurate, but a couple updates have been made (nice HDTV and new living room recliner). We loved taking saunas and the wood stove was so nice to use in the evenings. The property is close to others but it still feels fairly secluded which is a huge bonus. The only bummer was our inability to connect to the wifi the entire weekend, even after contacting guest services. Overall we had a fantastic time and I wouldn't hesitate to rent this cozy cabin again.

Ultimate relaxation! The deck, the wood stove, jacuzzi, the sauna, were perfect for stress free respite. Nordcapp is wonderful for a solo retreat, the view of the lake exquisite. Nordcapp is the "North Cape" in Norwegian, an area on its furthest north coast. Fishing grounds for my grandfather and his father in Norway, so the name is special to me. Cabin was clean, and had everything I needed, even lots of firewood. Cappuccino machine for extra luxury! Right off the bike trail, nice for walking if you don't bike. On a high cliff, so perhaps not for small toddlers, older kids would know to be careful.

Nordkapp is a great location on the Gitchee Gami trail, near the Temperance River and a short drive from Lutsen. It was very easy to find, and we appreciated the ease of using a lockbox to enter the property. We would stay here again. The deck provides a great view of Lake Superior, but it is on a cliff so there is no direct lake access. The kitchen is well equipped, and furnishings are comfortable. We had the misfortune of vacationing here on a day with a heat index of 100, and the electric storage heaters made it impossible to keep the heat out of the house by closing it up for the day. We survived with the provided box fans, some ice cream, and a stroll along a rocky beach up the road near Grand Marais. This was unusually warm weather, so I don't think this would typically be a problem. A strong thunderstorm also moved through the area during our stay, and although we didn't need it I appreciated that there was a clearly marked power outage supply box in the laundry room.
