In the late 30’s an attorney from Cedar Rapids, Iowa flew his airplane up to the area and laid claim to the property at what is now 4252 Cascade Beach Road in Lutsen. This property of 236+feet is highlighted by a sprawling ledge rock point that juts out from the mainland in the shape of a giant fish hook thus forming a natural cove. In 1939 the cabin was built on this exceptional property. It was placed on the property to take full advantage of Mother Nature’s exciting scenes with Superior’s breakers crashing on the massive ledge rock. Views are enhanced by the surrounding weathered pines, emerald mosses and lichens, some a deep orange. Wet your toes, launch a kayak, sit by the bonfire and witness the mystical borealis. The gem is the deep cove, over which is a sturdy, handsome footbridge. Waves churn in and out of the cove: it’s mesmerizing! Sounds are myriad, depending on the day: nor’ easters, it’s rumbling cannon balls of granite and basalt or delicate watery percussion's on a calm summer day. Today, the cabin/home shares a bit of the original cabin as it now is a four season home: warm woodwork throughout, a two story cobble stone (from the cove) fireplace for the ages. There are two private and restful bedrooms, a loft with two twin beds overlooking the main room, which host the views of Gitche Gumee’s shining big sea waters, and two bathrooms. The kitchen looks down on all the moods of the Big Lake, with corner windows and a simple charm of the way kitchens were back in the day. The light-filled living room has oak flooring and many windows overseeing the lake and surrounding woods. Plenty of room for a game of canasta, charades, or everyone in their favorite spot lost in books. Hand split cedar shakes side the cabin and garage - just like a place in the North should look. There are even custom made cedar gutters on both home and garage. The new deck faithfully replicates the expansive deck the previous owners designed to maximize outdoor enjoyment. The two-car, extra big garage boasts a large deck, a workshop and bunkroom for overflow guests, or make it your office/studio. The grounds are mostly wild, our wonderful Boreal woods, with tasteful touches of landscaping, all well-maintained. New septic system, state of the art water system controls and new asphalt shingle roof. Nothing to worry about, everything here is dialed in. Unpack, relax, tune-in to the old ways of the world’s largest fresh water lake. Lake Superior at its best.
