We are at the shoreline of Lake Superior, ½ acre of land with 200 ft of shoreline. There are steps to the ledge rock below where you can listen and watch the waves and catch the lake breezes. The changing nature of the lake will grab your attention and sometimes create a sense of awe. Since the property is on the shipping lanes leading to Duluth, you will see the huge boats of the lake, and also the fishing boats of the local restaurants.
The home has beautiful views of Lake Superior, the family room revealing a sun drenched panoramic view. Nature is on display through the various views of other rooms. A screened-in-porch, lakeside deck, outdoor seating, and patio dining enhance the outdoor experience. A screened in gazebo also offers solitude and refuge from everyday stress.
The main floor has two large bedrooms with comfortable mattresses and a sofa sleeper with view of fireplace and lake (sleeping for six people). The family room is adjacent to the kitchen and porch. There is also a dining room, piano, living room with original stone fireplace, and a TV room with leather couch, chair and ottoman, and views of the lake. For those who want to cook, the kitchen is fully furnished with cooking utensils and a electric stove and full sized refrigerator.
An additional option is available to sleep another 2 guests, the Nor Hus, our name for the overflow upstairs studio unit. The Nor Hus can be rented in conjunction with the main level except for 8 weeks/year. During 2017 a long term renter for the Nor Hus, a retiree will be on site from July 6th to August 31st . The Nor Hus provides an additional bed (full sized), kitchenette, small bath, large TV, lovely 2nd floor views of the lake, and a deck.
The two cities of Duluth and Two Harbors are within a 15 minute ride. Both cities offer festivals, shopping, and yearly events. Knife River is only 2 miles away and is the site of a large sandy beach, a marina, the Knife River, and the Superior hiking trail. Local smoked lake trout is available for you to buy, and fishing/boating excursions are for hire at the Knife River marina.
For those who want to dine out, there are fine restaurants in the immediate area, and other dining choices from the familiar to the unique.
Once you are here, you will wish you never had to leave. The charms of the North Shore are various and within a day’s drive from The Bon Aire at Greenwood Cliffs. As often as you visit, there is always more to explore. The natural beauty and rugged history are part of the experience.
