Overview

Photos and Description of the Silver Bay vacation cabin rental

Classic log cabin, lakefront property, great view of Lake Superior

The Palisade Log Cabin on the north shore of Lake Superior is located just off Highway 61, one mile east of Silver Bay. It is about a half mile through heavily wooded lots to the 35-year old secluded and authentic log cabin. The cabin sits on 2.6 acres of private land and has more than 460 feet of high rugged Lake Superior shoreline.

There are incredible views to the north of the Palisade Head Cliffs. These cliffs reach 350 feet high and are a favorite of rock climbers. You can hear the waves of the lake crashing against the ledge rock cliffs just 70 feet from the cabin. The sunrises over the lake are spectacular; in the evening you might be able to view the northern lights.

We installed a new geothermal heating system in October 2012 which should keep the cabin warm and cozy all winter long. Enjoy the peace and solitude of the whispering pines and birch while watching a bald eagle flying above. You can read a book or play cards/games near the cabin’s warm wood stove. Outside you can toast marshmallows at the fire pit or play horseshoes. Search for Thomsonites, agates, crystals, cobblestones, or driftwood. Go berry picking or view colorful spring wild flowers and brilliant fall foliage.

Drive the Highway 61/Superior National Forest Scenic Byway and visit the beautiful Minnesota state parks nearby (see map). Hike on The Superior Hiking Trail that runs from Two Harbors to the Canadian border. Ride your bike on the Gitche Gami Bike Trail that runs along Highway 61. Snowmobile on the North Shore State Snowmobiling Trail or drive an ATV on designated ATV trails from Duluth to Grand Portage. Try cross-country skiing on the North Shore Mountain Cross Country Ski Trail. Visit Lutsen Mountains ski resort 36 miles from the cabin.

In the summer you can go to two nearby beautiful sandy beaches which are part of Tettegouche State Park (ask for directions). Take a charter boat tour or fishing trip out of the Silver Bay Marina that is 3.5 miles to the southwest. If you're adventurous, you can go kayaking/canoeing in the cove.

Watch for giant iron ore carriers on Lake Superior, they depart from Silver Bay and head east to Cleveland. Look for wildlife around the cabin and you may see eagle, deer, moose, bear, fox, wolf, and beaver. If you don’t feel like cooking, dine at a variety of fine nearby restaurants (Lemon Wolf, Northern Lights, The Crossings, and Cove Point Lodge in Beaver Bay; Our House in Finland; The Blue Fin in Tofte).

The Palisade Log Cabin is in close proximity to all activities listed here, most within just a few miles. Most important, take time to enjoy a classic log cabin experience on the North Shore!
