We would love for you to stay at our log cabin on the North Shore of Lake Superior! It is a great place to create your perfect vacation.

With beautiful, 270 degree views overlooking Lake Superior and the steep hills of Tettegouche State Park, the cabin offers an awe-inspiring location to observe the beauty of the surrounding area.

Perched on a wooded hill 600 ft higher than Lake Superior, the Apostle Islands on the south shore can be seen along with the large freighters going to and from Duluth. Witness spectacular sunrises and sunsets, experience impressive weather patterns and watch for falling stars and the northern lights at night!

We built this full scribed log cabin out of large white pine logs in a peaceful and remote location. Enjoy this perfect place to relax all day or return to your home-away-from-home after an adventurous day of exploring the hiking trails, State Parks, and beautiful rocky beaches of Lake Superior. Sit on the deck or screened porch and enjoy the views. Listen to the wind in the trees, the morning birdsong, or the distant sound of a waterfall. Grill a steak or have a drink while taking in the peace and quite. Read, play games, sit around a fire at night watching the moon on Lake Superior, or hike to the river and see the falls!

Baptism River and Illgen falls, with a thunderous 50 foot drop, are about 1/4 mile from the cabin and are easily accessible. Watch people rope swinging or jumping at the falls or walk up river to take a dip in a private swimming spot.

Lake Superior and Crystal Beach are only 1.5 miles away. This beach offers a less-visited place to look for rocks, listen to the waves, or take a refreshing swim in the cold waters of Lake Superior.

Kayak the clear waters of the big lake and enjoy the cliffs and rocky shoreline or bike the paved Gitchi-Gami trail.

Hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing trails and rock climbing routes can all be found within a 5-10 minute drive on the Superior Hiking Trail, Tettegouche State Park, and impressive Palisade Head. The trails in this area offer some of the best hiking and scenery in the midwest taking you to cascading waterfalls, through thick balsam, poplar, and maple forests and up and over steep rocky climbs that offer breathtaking views of the inland lakes, hills, and Lake Superior. No matter what season, natural beauty is everywhere!

Within 20 minutes there are numerous restaurants, gift shops, a golf course, a lake cruise, and chartered fishing opportunities. Wolf Ridge Environmental Center is a pretty and unique place to visit.

Within 40 minutes you will find Lutsen Mountain which offers the best downhill skiing and snowboarding in the Midwest! In the summer you can take a Gondola to a sweeping overlook and have lunch, take a fun ride on the alpine slides, or enjoy the gift shops and restaurants in the area. Gooseberry, Split Rock, Temperance State, and George Manitou State parks all offer site seeing, hiking, gift shops and information about the area. All the state parks have beautiful lake access and mesmerizing waterfalls. In the city of Two Harbors you will find many shops, restaurants, a cruise, train ride, light house and various other attractions.

The unique villages of Ely and Grand Marais are each within an hour's drive and offer various regional activities, recreational opportunities, shopping , and restaurants. Both of these quaint destinations have seasonal festivals, events, and music.

Lakes, streams, and rivers are abundant and offer great fishing opportunities in winter and summer.

Snowmobiling is a popular activity in the area with trails nearby.

We hope you enjoy the cabin and your vacation!

We have been traveling the short distance to the North Shore for many years enjoying the hiking, waterfalls, and State Parks in the area. We took a log building class near Ely, MN in 2009 and decided to build our log home. We enjoyed the process enough that we decided to build another log cabin and place it near Silver Bay so we had a permanent location for enjoying the shore and for providing to others who love the shore as much as we do. We love having guests stay at our Falls Ridge Log Cabin and being able to provide a beautiful and quality place for them to enjoy. We enjoyed it enough that we purchased one last log home near Beaver Bay to add to our collection and called it Split Rock Log Cabin. We hope you enjoy the peace that the cabin provides as much as we do!
