Photos and Description of the Silver Bay vacation townhome rental

On Lake Superior, Grand view, hear waves, Luxury 3 bedroom & 3 bath, 1570 sq ft

We invite you to come and vacation in our three bedroom, well-appointed and comfortable vacation home located in the desired town home community of Windsong Cottages. It boasts a commanding view of Lake Superior the largest fresh water lake in the world! Our Windsong Cottage is perched on a rocky ridge of the waters edge and pebbled with beautiful trees beneath the deck! Come and unwind as you soak in the soothing sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks right in front of our home.

These two to three unit town homes are enveloped down in a beautiful valley off of Highway 61 at the edge of the charming town of Beaver Bay, MN which is the oldest settlement on the North Shore. As you drive down into the protected valley of the Windsong Cottages, you experience the peaceful community of these town homes, with Lake Superior as the back drop, glistening on a sunny day! You immediately notice these cottages are up-scale, hand crafted homes that are aesthetically landscaped, well maintained and you feel you are in for a nice vacation experience.

Our 1570 square foot vacation home is nestled in the community of lake front Windsong Cottages which boasts some of the best unobstructed views of the Lake. We have a single, narrow pine tree that majestically stands at our decks edge and adorns the breathtaking view of this portion of Lake Superior. Below the deck are various types of trees that stud the shoreline to make the various seasons on the shore magical.


Our vacation home is uniquely furnished with Old Hickory Furniture throughout that has been handcrafted and is typically found in iconic, upscale lodges and resorts since 1899. The quality and rustic comfort are the hallmarks of Old Hickory furniture and makes our vacation home so inviting. Our cottage’s décor has style encompassing many elements of the theme of Lake Superior, its many moods, and the surrounding woods.


It accommodates up to six guests depending on what sleeping arrangements you are looking for. It has three private bedrooms that claim a bathroom for each. Our home showcases a beautifully appointed Master Suite again featuring Old Hickory furniture and north woods lodge décor. The prominent, king size bed highlights this room hosting a supremely comfortable mattress with rich linens. The height of this bed allows you to see the entire panoramic view out the bay windows that encase the complete front of the bedroom. There is nothing better than watching the sunrise or moon rise from your bed! The suite features a Jacuzzi tub at the windows edge for retreating into after a long day on the shore. The suite also includes furnishings such as: dresser with enough drawers to accommodate all your clothes and TV on TV stand. A few steps away and you enter a large bathroom with large closet, and attached toilet and shower room with heated floors.

Our Windsong Cottage accommodates other guests with two additional, nicely appointed bedrooms as well. The second floor Mini-suite features an upscale richly designed queen log bed with matching furniture. It has a large dresser with many drawers and a closet to hang your clothes. It has a roomy full private bath, also with heated tile flooring. With a tub and shower combo. The third bedroom is located next to the front entry on the main level. It’s a cozy private room, with a comfortable Queen sized bed with rich colored lodge theme. It has its own closet for hanging clothes and setting your suit case on a rack. A great feature is the roomy third bathroom that is next to this bedroom again with the comfort of heated tile floor and a shower.


Alas---walk down the hall to a grand view out the large, floor to ceiling windows showcasing the Lake Superior back drop to the open design of the kitchen, dining, and living rooms. The furnishings are beautiful Old Hickory and the tasteful artwork and decor pulls you into the theme of the woods and lake shore. The relaxing living room furniture surrounds a stone studded gas fireplace to sit in comfort and talk about your wonderful day on the shore. Or you can relax and gaze out at the lake as the sun or moon rises.

The kitchen features granite counters with handsome Hickory cabinets. While preparing food at the counter facing the lake, you have access to the sink (with disposal), and the bar height counter to visit with your family and friends seated on the other side. The kitchen is complete with a dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, full size stove/oven, and microwave. It is well appointed with the pots and pans and utensils you need to make your meals. We also provide basic spices to aide in cooking your delicious meals. To help with food storage we provide tin foil and plastic wrap. We also provide paper towels and dish/hand/dishwasher soaps. The cupboards are filled with attractive stoneware and glassware that sets a lovely up-north table. You can enjoy your meal at the dining room table or out on the deck to revel in the panoramic view and entrancing sounds of Lake Superior!


After many years of vacationing on the North Shore, we purchased this town home in December 2014. We know what we appreciated and looked for in the properties we have stayed at. Our home is a compilation of all the things we loved from those wonderful times. You will find this is a vacation home that is well cared for and we plan to maintain the comfort level and continue to improve it as time goes on.

We pay well for a good cleaning person and also most of our cleaning products are all natural eco and human friendly. We manage our property ourselves and contract for other help as the need arises. Call anytime for help!

We use a time sensitive key code for easy entry to the home for every new guest stay.

We decided to share our vacation home with others to offset the expenses of our vacation home. We are looking for GUESTS WHO WILL PARTNER WITH US IN USING OUR HOME WITH CARE. It is our hope your experience with us will keep you coming back for many years!


We are part of a quiet community of 26 privately owned residential town homes that are not owned or operated by any resort, hotel or lodge. This is a vacation by owner rental that allows travelers to experience a vacation out of the congested resort or hotel settings. You become part of our friendly community of owners and guests. We have a shared use building with a pool and sauna. Pool (open Memorial day to New Years) AND Sauna open Year round.


Our vacation home is centrally located just off Minnesota scenic North Shore drive Highway 61 and surrounded by some of the premier vacation state park destinations in Minnesota. The closest park being Split Rock Lighthouse which is one of the most visited and photographed lighthouses in the nation! It is hard to beat our location for travelers who want to be centrally located and capture “all” the shore has to offer.

We think you will agree, due to the nature of the shores length, if you are too far northeast or southwest you get trapped into only seeing part of the shore when you visit, but our location meets the needs of the travelers who want to see it all. Or, remain in this beautiful section of the shore and enjoy the many premier Minnesota favorite destinations near us. To highlight a few of the locations:

We would love to host you at our private vacation home! Click on the Book It Now button to make a reservation. Since this is our vacation home, we also like to speak directly with our guests.

Just to verify 24 yr and older to rent. No Pets. No Smoking. Maximum guest count 6 including children in that count.

Snowmobile/ATV - We are in a fantastic location for it! We have a parking lot for trailers and sleds just up the hill from our place. You can drive your sleds right from that lot to the trails in minutes. However, there is no driving sleds/ATV on the Wind Song Property by the town homes to keep the quiet community we love.


Note on the BOOK IT NOW BUTTON: Call or email owner for special offers or Peak Season two night stays - the book it now button will not work for those so I need to set it up manually.

A nice MONEY SAVING thing to know when booking on the shore WITH US - we only have to charge MN sales tax. We don't charge a resort fee, city tax fee, or lodging tax fee because we are not a resort and in the township of Beaver Bay, MN.

We charge a refundable damage deposit for first time guests renting with us. $500

Windsong property has a no tolerance policy on excessive and wild parties. They fine $250 per incident. Our contract reads immediate eviction with no refund. Guests who book with us love this policy as it keeps WindSong Town homes the quiet, premier upscale property it is.

The Jacuzzi tubs water is even hot when you fill the tub. We have nice Egyptian cotton towels. We have attractive hand soap dispenser in each.

  • You can see the full description on the bedrooms in the over-view of our cottage. But let us talk beds and bedding --- We have super plush mattresses with nice back support in the Master Suite and Queen mini suite. The first floor bedroom has a comfortable Queen size mattress. In our opinion, the beds are very comfortable and we use nice soft linens that make for a great nights sleep. We also provide various soft to firm Hampton Inn pillows for the beds. We use high quality pillow protectors to keep out dust mites. All the bedrooms have doors for total privacy. I say this because some places we have stayed at didn't have doors on all the bedrooms. Every room has been beautifully furnished with upscale bedding and furniture to give it a cozy up-north feel.
