About Superior Escape

Do you like Tiny Homes? Hop on board with the Tiny House craze and book your stay at Superior Escape in Tofte, Minnesota! This tiny home offers big adventure on Lake Superior's North Shore. Located a short walk from Tofte Park, a public boat launch, and a beach area. This home sits on a 4-acre wooded parcel with no visible neighbors. You will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere without having to drive there.

Superior Escape is a darling one bedroom, one bathroom tiny home built by Escape Traveler- an elite tiny home company that has been featured nationally on HGTV and other television shows. Superior Escape is the first Escape Traveler Tiny Home located in Minnesota and takes some inspiration from the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright! The home features a full kitchen with full-sized appliances, a dining area with room to seat four guests, and a cozy living room with a gas fireplace and smart TV.

Although it's a tiny home, the layout and use of space make the home feel spacious with room to unpack your belongings and enjoy your stay. An on-demand water heater ensures that you will never run out of hot water. Although not directly on the lake, you are close enough to hear the waves splashing against the shoreline. Open your windows in the summer and enjoy the sounds of the Lake. We recommend Superior Escape in Tofte for a couple or a family. There is only one bed and the other two sleeping areas are futons in the living room area. There is limited privacy and space may be a bit tight for 4 adults. This home also has some ADA-compliant features including an exterior ramp and shower with a seat that would make it a nice property for someone with a walker/cane or other mobility issues.

Allergy Warning: Guests with pet allergies should be aware that while this property is NOT a pet-friendly rental, the owner has a pet and there may be some hair/dander present.
