Description

Location: Tofte

This unique and spacious handcrafted log cabin offers the total experience. With a 360 degree view from the Eagles Nest Lookout, elevated screened porch, and 2309 sq ft of space, you are sure to enjoy your Northwood vacation. There is 740 ft of deck space, cozy loft for lounging, cat walk, vaulted ceilings, and rec room in addition to 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The cabin is in the Wildwood Acres neighborhood (rural residential setting) about 1.5 miles north of Tofte.  The area is residential but very quiet and peaceful.

One of the largest vacation rental homes available, Eagles Nest is popular among larger families, those planning family reunions, and groups of friends looking forward to enjoying a getaway together.  There is enough room for 11 guests so bring everyone to enjoy the Tofte/Lutsen area on Lake Superior's North Shore.  

Eagles Nest is centrally located to a lot of the North Shore's most popular attractions.  Here 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 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 downhill 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.  

Whether you're visiting in the summer, fall, winter, or spring, the list of things to do is seemingly endless!  Summer on the North Shore brings mild temperatures and tons of outdoor activities, including hiking and mountain biking.  Color change season in the fall on the North Shore is unlike anywhere else, with colors so vibrant the hills look like they are on fire.  In the winter the area is a premier downhill skiing destination and you can easily find snowmobile trails, cross country ski trails, and even groomed fat bike trails.  Don't forget spring and "waterfall season".  As the snow melts inland and makes its way toward Lake Superior our waterfalls truly come to life and are a sight to be seen.  Waterfalls also form along the edge of Highway 61 so you can enjoy them during a leisurely drive up and down the shore.  Be sure to experience every season at Eagles Nest.


Note: To reach the Eagles Nest requires climbing 2 flights of stairs and a ladder, with heavy doors  -  this is not recommended for small children or those with accessibility issues.  May not be accessible in colder months.

We had a question about the cost of additional guests beyond 4. We received a timely response and then later found the information on the property page (embarrassment).

Great location, close to many of our favorite spots along the North Shore. Easy driving distance to many others. Highlight of the house is the 'Nest'. Able to easily view Carlton Peak and Lake Superior. Even able to spot the house from Tofte Peak because of the 'nest'. Enjoyed sitting on the porch, watching and waving to passersby, including the road grader.

We loved the house. It was well furnished and very clean. Very comfortable for 5 adults and 4 kids. The kids were in awe, said it was the most amazing cabin ever and didnt want to leave. We especially appreciated how close it was to so many of our favorite beaches and hiking trails along the shore. A great stay!

Communication is always an important aspect for us and your team did an awesome job with that. It was great to be given a few attractions nearby giving everyone of us more things to do during our stay. Responses were quick and directions were very easy to follow. Everything was wonderful!

This was our second year staying at the house and it was amazing (as the year before)! The location was easy to get to and had just enough space between the neighboring houses to make our stay even more memorable and private. The view from the rooftop was amazing and the layout of the house, itself, made this the perfect size for us. It's very cozy and spacious.

The Eagle's Nest house was perfect for 5 ladies to enjoy a4day stay. We loved the location away from neighbors and it was easy to get to from Hwy 61. Not having a TV was also very ice-it allowed for many game nights and movies. Those of us with Verizon had no problems with reception.

The cabin was fantastic! However, there were some misleading pieces of information in the check-in instructions that were a little frustrating: in particular, it said that laundry detergent would be provided, but when we got there only two detergent pods were available. Considering we were traveling with a toddler and baby, we would have brought our own detergent pods had the instruction clearly said that only a very small # of pods would be provided for guests' use. Also, the instruction indicated to bring our own hairdryer and a couple other small items, but those items were provided at the cabin. These are relatively minor quibbles, as overall we had an amazing time and loved the rental property. As for the town that we stayed in, Tofte, we loved that it was essentially halfway between the two locations were we spent the majority of our time: Grand Marais and Tettegouche State Park. The actual amenities of the town itself were a little disappointing, but the great cabin and nearness to other areas of interest made up for that.

We are all adults but would have concerns if children there while fireplace running. could easily get burned. was very hot to touch or sit on hearth. otherwise no concerns and loved the house

Loved the home, it was beautiful and well kept! Great location as it is close to highway and Lutsen. Would definitely book again. The only downfall was check out at 10am, people are on holidays and it would be nice to have a check out of noon or 1230.

The home was beautiful. Love that the neighbors are far away. All cabins I've been to, have to no Bonfire and are we are so please that this one did. Loved everything about this cabin. It's number one on our cabin list. The only thing that may need a little tweek is the checkout time is too early. We like to sleep in on our vacation and 10am is a bit early to get up, have breakfast, clean, and load our belongings. 12-1pm would be a better checkout time. Oh and some wifi would be great also.

My groomsmen and I stayed at the cabin before my wedding on 08/27 and it was just a cool experience! The cabin was pretty clean, a nice and cozy place, and just so much fun! We loved having the foosball table, although it needs a little maintenance it was still a blast! On the top level of the Eagles nest there were some empty beer cans, and there is a torn open seat on one of the chairs but otherwise it was such a cool experience. My biggest wish would be to have wifi at the cabin since I was roaming with T-Mobile and it was difficult to send picture messages, look up addresses, use gps, and send emails. Otherwise the place was absolutely awesome! We had many compliments from friends and family who stopped by. Quite a few people said they will probably stay here next time they are up in the area! -thank you for everything!

We loved the whole cabin but the eagles nest and screened in porch with the swings was definitely our favorite. Seeing the stars from the Eagle's nest was something that can't even be described..you can see ever star in the sky. We loved being so close to Lutsen and had dinner at Bluefin Bay (which was incredible). My new husband and I felt totally relaxed and had a great experience!

We've stayed with Cascasde properties a number of times and this experience, like all others was excellent. We were in the area for a local mountain bike race and family get together. We like to utilize rental opportunities to make meals and managing activities during our stay a bit easier. Eagles Nest was a great size for our group, was outfitted well, and a great value.

Based on the information we found on your website, the cabin was pretty much as my wife expected. I, on the other hand, found that the actual cabin exceeded my expectations. It was newer and cleaner, and both more spacious and more homey than I had anticipated. It was the perfect headquarters for our miniature family reunion and hiking expeditions. The eagle's nest itself provided a nice view of the lake. The level below that offered a couple of comfortable hammock-style chairs that I took advantage of (and fell asleep!). And the other three levels provided plentiful sleeping, eating, and game-playing spaces. I loved the decorations throughout the cabin, and the special lighting touches in our bedroom (on the main floor) and on the railings. A few of us also took advantage of the several reading nooks. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and I highly recommend this relaxing getaway.

This was our second year staying here at the Eagles' Nest. It is close to hiking trails, the lake and campgrounds and it's inviting & relaxing. Family favorite tradition is coming to the North Shore in October. The autumn colors were at their peak this stay and we enjoyed cozying up at the fireplace, cooking, playing games and our kiddos especially liked the book of bird calls! The new ski chairs are comfy and cool looking.
