About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The unique feature of this property is the spectacular panoramic high bluff view of Lake Superior. The view is unobstructed and spans the town of Silver Bay to the south and Palisade Head to the north. Our property has direct access to the Blue Jay Vista Trail in Silver Bay for both snowmobiles and ATV's. The A-frame structure features vaulted 2-story window views facing east to Lake Superior. Relax or dine on a second-story deck that provides expansive views along the north shore, Lake Superior, and the sun setting through the woods. The A-frame is completely secluded on 6 wooded acres. The property features two outdoor fire pit areas with plenty of seating and fire wood is provided.

Another unique feature is the location. Less than a mile away, the town of Sliver Bay provides easy access for groceries, wine and spirits, movie rentals, eateries, and gas. Beaver Bay is 5 minutes south with more restaurants and tourist shops. With several state parks nearby, guests will find numerous hiking and biking trails, waterfalls, and scenic views. A snowmobile/ATV trail system is within walking distance of the property.

The A-frame was completed in 2009 and is a perfect blend of new amenities and an 'up north' interior decor complete with log railings, furniture, and tongue & groove throughout. The great room has a vaulted ceiling and panoramic unobstructed views of Lake Superior. Enjoy an even more expansive view from an outdoor seating area on the edge of the bluff.

About Dave Nobbe

We are full-time working professionals who love to get away on the north shore. We have many fond memories from our own childhood of spending vacation time up north, and then created new ones with our 2 children. It is a setting that appeals to those who want to do nothing but relax & enjoy the beauty of the north shore, to those that prefer to be active outdoors.

Dave Nobbe purchased this house in 2008

Why Dave Nobbe chose Silver Bay

We chose this property for the unique expansive view of Lake Superior. An added plus is the location and proximity to many state parks, Lutsen Ski Resort, restaurants and stores.

What makes this house unique

The view of Lake Superior changes constantly so we enjoy the ever-changing scenery. We continue to find new scenic locations that are accessible on short or long hikes, or on recreational vehicle trails. The views are spectacular both inside and outside so the weather does not inhibit full enjoyment of the beauty of the north shore.

This is a great property on the north shore. Beautiful views and seclusion without being isolated. Town and attractions are close. The property is fantastic and had everything we needed and more.

A second wonderful stay here

  • 5 of 5

Great in the summer and beautiful in the snow too. Cabin is warm and amazingly soundproofed even in winter winds. Again lots of wildlife visits around the area from birds of prey, coyotes and deer.

Comfortable home in a beautiful area!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our short weekend along the North Shore. We spent most of our time outdoors visiting the multiple State Parks near by. Cell coverage was spotty so it would have been nice to have WiFi but unplugging also makes the weekend more refreshing.

Cozy and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We were six adults staying here together and found the cabin fit all of us well. The location allowed us easy access to many of our favorite North Shore spots. The owner was friendly and helpful in all our interactions.
