Located on 2 acres in Hovland with 450 feet of gorgeous Lake Superior shoreline, most everything about this vacation home rental is anything but ordinary. 1,383 square feet suitable for entertaining family and friends, there's plenty of space with 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and numerous amenities - including jetted tub and a massage chair for those worn out from a long day of hiking. All located on one easy-access level.
Outside, the deck boasts a great lake view and a swing to enjoy it. The fire pit is a great place to sit and listen to the waves. The shore curves into a cove for swimming or skipping rocks. Beautiful log beds in both the master suite and guest room offer a good night's sleep. During the day, relax in the hammock by the lake. We just know there will be sighs of contentment the minute you walk through the front door.
If you are up for an adventure you will have plenty to find just a short drive away! Head to Judge CR Magney State Park. Enjoy a challenging 1-mile hike to the infamous Devil's Kettle. Pigeon Falls and the Canadian Border are also just a few miles away and a great location for hiking. You will find the home surrounded by miles of mountain biking trails and cross-country ski trails in the winter. Bay Breeze is also about 25 minutes past picturesque Grand Marais, home to many locally owned and operated shops and restaurants. Chicago Bay Deli and Naniboujou Restaurant are convenient stops to eat just a few miles from the home. The cabin is only one mile from Horseshoe Bay boat launch.

Lovely property! Having a garage with a heated slab is fantastic (though it is unusually short - if you have a full size SUV or truck it is not likely to fit). Ceiling fans in both bedrooms work well and are quiet. Dimmer switches on a LOT of lights as well! Will definitely be looking at staying here again in the future!

The team was great. They answered any questions I had throughout the process. Of course they always have, which is why we keep coming back to CVR.
We had a great stay. It is our second time at Bay Breeze. We love the North Shore and always use CVR for a place to stay. Bay Breeze is an exceptional home to stay at. The view is great, the amenities are fantastic and even though the weather was not the best we didn't care, we could sit in front of the nice fireplace and enjoy the waves crashing on the shore. The home is a fabulous place to stay.

This is a beautiful property with really pleasant amenities. The cabin is updated but still had a lot of character and "up north" feel. The only recommendation that I would have is to trim the area between the deck and lake. It would be nice to be able to easily access and see the lake shore from the backyard area.

Cascade rental was fantastic to deal with. Bay breeze was a wonderful home. Paths to lake a little wider maybe. Neighbors dog was over in our yard a couple times, pooped in yard, which I cleaned up. Luckily our dog did not see him as she doesn't care much for other dogs. Other than that the stay was great!

To us, this is a year-around home, more than a cabin. It has everything a home has and then some. It was immaculately clean, everything as advertised, comfortable, quiet, bright, and the cabin decor was fun to look at. Everything worked. There is no beach, and swimming would be difficult if attempted, but no worries, we knew Lake Superior is COLD way up the north shore at this location, and didn't plan to swim. The weather was enjoyable... cool air, warm sunshine, cool nights for sleeping. Love it. The stars were dazzling, the lake changed color every day, we had a large, bright rainbow right in front of the cabin, we saw a tall sailing ship go by, many fishing boats, it was a great few days.

Bay Breeze is a great retreat that has just about all you would like for a great vacation or long weekend. We have been there twice and thoroughly loved our stay. It would be great if the owners would get internet service & at least have outgoing 800# telephone service. I wold also suggest that at least a 15 - 20 foot area in front of the deck have the natural weeds & plants removed all the way to the lake which would give a superior view. This would make sitting on the deck even better and then you could take chair up the edge to have an even better experience for lake watchers! However, this property warrants an excellent rating.

This is our second time to stay here (2008 and 2016). The house is a great place to get away from people, cell phones, internet, etc.. There are many great things to say about this house and the location. Waking up and looking out the window at the lake is awesome. The den is cozy and relaxing (great windows and lighting).

This is our second year at Bay Breeze and it was a great place to spend a week at the north shore. This home has everything one could want and more. It is secluded with its own beach front. The fire place inside was a little smokey but the firewood was in the garage and stayed nice and dry despite the many rainy days. We enjoyed being further north and further away from the busier parts of the shore. There are still plenty of things to do around Hovland.

Loved everything about it. A great retreat to get away from the business of everyday life. Try the pizza and cinnamon rolls at the Old Chicago market. You won't be disappointed. This is an awesome property for 2 or 4 people!

Bay Breeze is a beautiful home. It is warm and cozy. Loved the massage chair, swing on the deck, great shower, and it was nice to have a wash and dryer. What really liked about Bay Breeeze was it was had lots of sunlight and windows. It was fun to go on the beach and listen to the waves and read. The staff were very freindly and helpful in finding a place to meet all of my family needs for a wonderful vacation stay.
