About the property

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

This rare 4-season home sits on 1,000 feet of private river frontage on the Brule river, (Bois Brule, Fr. burnt wood). The Brule river is a famous, spring-fed trout stream flowing north from Upper St. Croix Lake, at the continental divide, into Lake Superior. It is noted for it's natural beauty, quiet serenity and rich history. This rental home is a unique, cozy, architectural gem, filled with charm, nestled inside the Brule River State Forest.

The main area is an open floor plan with a wrap around deck and an area for outdoor dining, overlooking the river. The full kitchen is equipped with appliances and staples. There is satellite TV, Wi-Fi, high speed fiberoptic cable and a DVD player.

There are three bedrooms, including a master suite on the first floor. Two bedrooms and full bath are on the lower floor. Each room has large widows with beautiful views of the river approximately 50' away. The lower level sleeps 4-5 with a double bed and a single in one bedroom, which also includes a sink area, and a second bedroom with two single beds. Both lower bedrooms have doors leading out to a patio.

Nature surrounds this retreat with tranquil serenity and fresh, clean mornings to have your coffee sitting on the deck looking out at the river, or at the dock, watching the fish jumping and eagles soaring overhead.

Don your waders and fish in front of the house, or paddle a canoe upriver to cast a fly in one of the notable lakes, or contact one of the local guides for a fishing experience of a lifetime.

It's a must to take a canoe or kayak from the dock, up or down the gentle flowing Brule river viewing the elegant, old log homes built by original residents from the turn of the last century.

Begin at Stones Bridge and take a leisurely, 4 hour canoe trip, through an uncut natural northern pine forest that was the once the Voyageur's highway to the Mississippi and beyond, via the St. Croix River. The 'trip down from Stones' is dotted with small rapids here and there and passes 'Cedar Island' a stately, turn of the 20th century fishing camp, visited by five past presidents.

Step just outside the back door and take a long leisurely walk, ski or snow shoe, on one of the many nearby hiking trails or just head out into the woods. Or drive to one of the many trail heads on the scenic North Country Trail or Brule State Forest trails.

There are many area lakes. Nearby. Lake Nebagamon has groceries, restaurants, a swimming beech and boat landing. Drive north of Brule township 13 miles to the mouth of the Brule and picnic on the sandy shore of Lake Superior.

This property both beacons you to stop and relax, and be mystified by the awe-inspiring, 300 year old Norway and White pine forest that surrounds you, and it also enlivens you to get out and enjoy some of your favorite outdoor activities in an enchanting place.
