About Becky

Both Jim and I grew up in the Chicago area and live in the City now.

My husband Jim has been traveling to the North Shore since he was boy and has great memories of his family vacations there.

My first trip to the North Shore was just after we were married 15 years ago. I fell in love with area immediately and never wanted our vacations to come to an end.

Becky purchased this house in 2012

Why Becky chose Minnesota

We have been looking for the perfect house and piece of property ever since our first trip up together. Finally our dream came true this past year.

Growing up in, and living in Chicago now, we love the fact, that when at Twin Cedars we can't see our neighbors. That was very important to us.

We try to get to Twin Cedars every chance we get but in the mean time want to share this beautiful piece of the North Shore with you.

What makes this house unique

I remember vividly my first glimpse of Lake Superior right from the driveway. As I walked down the gentle sloping path into the yard for the first time, I saw a cute little footbridge crossing over a seasonal creek. Not only did I have a beautiful, walkable, ledge rock shore stretching out in front of me but a babbling brook as well.

As I strolled up the small creek bed lined with stones and wild roses I realized we had a small Springtime waterfall located just off the deck. This is one of my husbands favorite things to enjoy while grilling.

Inside the house is all 'Knotty pine' that gives you that true 'Up North' feeling.

This is a 1960's custom built house with lots of fun interesting features. With the updated track lighting you can either do some fine needle work and reading or have a cozy family movie night.

Both the Family room and A-Frame have fantastic views of the lake. Just off the A-Fame are a few bird feeders rigged to attract a variety of species and with windows all around being from floor to ceiling the bird watching can be exceptional. It sometimes feels like you are in your own tree house.

The Family room has a huge picture window that looks out over the deck and Lake Superior. You can see all the way to the Horizon here.

In addition to fantastic scenery and bird watching right off the deck, there are miles of diverse hiking and biking trails that in the winter turn to cross country ski and snow mobile trails.

Just a 5 minute drive from the house is a beautiful water fall down an easy 300 foot path. Or you can choose from many other paths at the same location and take a moderate to more challenging hike and be gone for as long as you want. Many of the Superior Hiking Trail 'heads' are just a stones throw away.

For Downhill Skiers, we are just 2 miles from Beautiful Lutsen Mountain with beginner to Olympic style runs and for Golfers, Superior National Golf Course is 5 minutes away and offers exceptional views as you make your way from Tee to Tee.

Comfortable home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property twice and loved it both times. The house is clean and comfortable, and the back yard / shoreline is amazing. Lots of places to hang out and relax. Also close to many beautiful trails and some shopping and restaurants. Love it!

Convenient, comfortable and gorgeous scenery.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location as it is close to all hiking and fun North Shore activities. Very comfortable home for a group of four adults and our dog. The home is furnished with everything necessary for a comfy stay. The owners are excellent to work with. The home is located a few steps from the lake. Couldn't ask for a more perfect north shore location for fun and relaxation.

Feels like coming home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been here a couple times before this stay (with our pup) and love it more with every trip! It is truly one of the most relaxing places we have stayed and the owners, Becky & Jim, always add such personal touches to make it even more inviting. We chose to spend our "mini-moon" here and truly cherished every minute we had here. Our dog Scarlett loves it, which makes us love it even more! We cannot say enough about how wonderful this place is to stay!! We look forward to our next trip up to the Northshore and our next stay at Twin Cedars!

So much thoughtfulness provided by the owners! They leave everything needed for smores & for your 4 legged family member! No kidding - an emergency first aid kit for dogs is in pantry plus many other items. This was our 2nd visit.
