About the property

Timberframe Chalet, 3 bedrooms, 3 bath, Sleeps 12, FREE Wi-Fi & FIREWOOD*

The Forest Chalet is a beautiful chalet with high end amenities situated in your own piece of tranquil forest. The chalet is a custom built home featuring vaulted ceilings and huge beams that frame a panoramic window wall showcasing the forest and its' wildlife right outside the great room.

Animals and birds are all around in this lovely, secluded setting that is centrally located to Lutsen Mountains, Caribou Lake, Grand Marais, Superior's North Shore and Superior National Golf Course. Enjoy the nearby hiking trails, waterfalls, state parks and fishing lakes during your stay.

In the evenings relax in the warmth and glow from the stone fireplace unwinding from your days activities in the great room or play pool down in the lower level. You may also want to enjoy the lower level outside firepit, where you can listen to the evening song of the wildlife whilst toasting marshmallows. Alternatively, you could sit on the loft balcony and relax with a book taking in the peacefulness of your surroundings.

The chalet is furnished with a rustic elegance featuring cherry hardwood floors, granite counter tops, Jenn-Aire appliances and comfortable furniture.

Thanksgiving on the Woods

  • 3 of 5

The property is lovely. We really enjoyed the many options for common spaces. The fire pit outside was great. There were a few glitches. Some of the “sleeping areas”were no more than a lumpy pullout couch in a high traffic area. The only bed that was halfway comfortable was the bunk...which was a mattress on top of a plywood base. The other concern was the cleanliness of the kitchen . Some of the cookware was greasy and had food particles stuck to them. We felt we had to wash cookware/utensils before we used them. This could be a fabulous getaway spot if it received some much needed maintenance and TLC.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and comments. We work very hard to try and provide you with the best experience possible but are not always able to experience what you do. Bed comfort is challenging due to different needs of different people. We will look into the mattress's on the pullout couch and see if they need replacement. In addition, we will try and do a better job of inspecting the cookware, but admit, it's frustrating when a renter puts dirty dishes back in the cupboards and we don't catch it. Regards, Greg and Betsy

Beautiful Chalet in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the nicest homes we have ever rented. The rustic feel combined with high quality timber frame style was perfect. The heated floors were amazing and kept the winter chill away.
