Great cabin with a great location. Amazing lake-facing deck offers lots of room for sunning and BBQs. Take an afternoon nap in the seasonal hammock while you listen to sounds of Lake Superior’s waves splashing against a private section of shoreline just a few yards away.   On a warm summer evening prepare a meal to enjoy on the deck using the charcoal grill. Then cap off the night with a bonfire on the beach and roast up some marshmallows.

With 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms plus a sleeper sofa in the loft, this home can comfortably accommodate the whole family or a group of friends heading north for a ski or hiking trip.  With its combination of wood paneled walls, hardwood floors, and wood stove it has the feel of a traditional north woods cabin retreat.  Warm and cozy for the winter months and on a great bit of land to enjoy the great outdoors in the summer months.

The home also has easy access to 300 feet of ledge rock beach, perfect for watching the sunrise and sunset. It's convenient Tofte location is near snowmobile trails, hiking, golfing, biking, skiing and more. Superior National State Park hiking trails, Oberg Mountain, Sawbill Trail (Sawtooth Outfitters and rental ½ mile away), Gitchi-Gami Bike Trail, Tofte Park (with Lake Superior boat launch), Superior National Golf Course, Lutsen Mountains Ski and Recreation Area, and Temperance River are a few of the attractions just minutes away, making this cozy cabin a great, central location for your next North Shore vacation.

The cabin is also located less than a mile from Bluefin Grill and The CoHo Cafe for your dining pleasure, and just a short drive to Lutsen Resort and Caribou Highland Resort, both full menu restaurants. The Tofte General Store is just down the street for those items you forgot to bring. Grand Marais is just 30 minutes up the road with dining, shopping, and the head of the picturesque Gunflint Trail. Come and enjoy everything the North Shore and this beautiful home have to offer.

It was nice to get an email to be sure we had arrived. and you responded to my question quickly.
The house is comfy, the kitchen had all the equipment we needed, and everything worked. The location - overlooking the lake - is fabulous.

Morning Light was exactly what I had expected regarding an adorable and comfortable cabin with amazing views of Lake Superior. It was the perfect place to come back to for the night after hiking all day and visiting some of the local towns in the area.

Staff has always been helpful and non intrusive while staying at this property. Very much enjoy and appreciate the updates for places to visit through put the year.
This was our 3rd stay at Morning Light. We love the location as water and rocks have always been a huge draw for us. We lived in CA for 10 years and Lake Superior is our Minnesota ocean. The house is well kept and feels like a cabin on the lake. The kitchen is well supplied. We will likely bring non breakable wine glass next year as I was concerned we might break one or two while outside. We are very thankful this home is available for our annual trek to the North Shore. We are very comfortable staying there and never venturing far from the home. It is a perfect place to escape the city and have much privacy. But also close enough for 1/2 day or full day trips in state parks or Grand Marais.

Over the past 4 years i havent had to deal with many Cascade staff members, but those I have were polite and quick to respond.
This cabin was perfect for our group. Weve rented from Cascade 4 times before. While all properties were nice, this one had the best combination of location, cabin comfort, and access to the lake.

My wife Lisa and I had stayed at Morning Light in August 2016. We had a delightful stay then and decided to check it out in the winter time. President's Day weekend was awesome - we went cross country skiing twice, visited Grand Marais on Saturday and spent the day Sunday watching is snow. We picked up over 12"!

Service was fast and efficient. Appreciated someone shoveling the snow off deck even though it was only an inch or two.
Lovely home and outstanding location. Really enjoyed ability to walk into Tofte while still having the feeling of solitude. Home was great, can't beat the view and lakeshore access. Original 80's charm in great shape.

We loved it at Morning Light. Such a gorgeous view and plenty of room to spread out! Would love to see a little more lighting in the sitting area that looks over lake. And maybe directions for tv and dvd, we had to hook them up ourselves. But all in all absolutely loved it!

Everyone has been helpful, respectful and friendly. A huge plus!!
Morning Light is exactly what we like about a get away; being on water and in the woods. This is a retreat where we are content to spend most of our time on the property. We are minutes away from great hiking places and amazing rivers. The house is well stocked; we bring clothes and food and that is about it. We feel like we are "home" when we pull in the driveway.

Love the location. Close to the lake and very private. Everything was in working order except the screen door out to the deck is broken. The cabin is nicely equipped. If I were to be picky, I would like a chopping knife along with the other knives sharpened and better mattresses. We appreciated having a larger coffee maker (last year they only had a four cup maker). We loved our stay at Morning Light and plan to return.

We rented the Morning Light cabin for a family girl's trip. We absolutely loved Morning Light! The setting and proximity to Lake Superior can't be beat. The location feels completely private, and yet there are neighbors nearby & a Holiday gas station less than a mile, which is nice to know. Unfortunately, we had less than ideal weather on our visit, so we couldn't take full advantage of the deck and shoreline - but we still enjoyed coming "home" to Morning Light after a full day of hiking and exploring. We made a fire in the wood stove on our last night, which was lovely and made up for not being able to have a bonfire on the shore. The kitchen is more than adequately outfitted with kitchen items (pans, utensils, etc) - we made 3 meals there over the weekend, and found everything we needed (and more!). We all slept well and enjoyed waking up to the Lake out our windows :) Only sort of negative is that the decor is VERY dated - I know this is common with cabins, but felt like a few small changes would make a world of difference. Also, additional comfortable seating in the cabin would be nice. There are only 2 comfortable chairs - we ended up sitting on the hard chairs at the table most of the time so we could actually sit together. Regardless, we would definitely come back and would recommend to anyone!

You have been very easy to work with and we did stop into your office and book the cabin for next year....I added a day for this year and that was taken care of promptly...all in all a good experience.
We loved the cabin. It was perfect for our needs. I like to read at night and stay up late but we have a child with us that needs to get to bed, with the loft bedroom they had a space and so did I. We also liked that it was so private.....just you and the wildlife...our father had owned a cabin for many years and this brought back fond memories of that....we could bring in our own food and cook if we wanted to or go out....also it was easy to go up to Grand Marais which is a favorite place for us....all around just a great place.

Our stay at Morning Light Cabin ranks up in the top two "best vacactions" ever. The location was perfect, the quiet and solitude was exactly what we were looking for. The cabin and furnishings are older but still functional and had no complaints.
