Traditional on Caribou Inland Lake

Traditional on Caribou Inland Lake

Caribou Lake, Lutsen: Ahh! Northwoods, quiet waters, sweet maple forest. Curvy cedars, lofty pine and fragrant balsam. The setting alone is transformational! The cares of the world slip away as you come into this pristine environment. To have a lake home nestled into these woods and shoreland is a dream coming into reality - a youthful vision of a hideaway, a place to escape to. A place where life thrives: loons, martens, lynx, trillium, raspberries, blue-spotted salamanders mysteriously emerging from frozen soils. Turn down the driveway meandering through sugar maples, just now budding. Too late to tap trees this year, but next year collect and boil up the traditional Northwoods elixir. Summer finds the home coming into full delight as hours slip by endlessly on the attached, screened gazebo. Shady breezes, bird calls, lapping waters are the Gazebo soundscape, and the counting of cribbage points. Coffee scents mingle with cedar and pine. Fall explodes in color, Vs of geese overhead, perhaps a rutting bull moose! In winter, the living room woodstove cruises along, feeding on wind-thrown maple. Tasteful kitchen overlooks it all: living room, woodstove, out to the woods and lake. Center island with glass front doors is nice for a quick meal, visiting, or rolling out Xmas cookies. There’s elbow room here for the whole gang! 4 bedrooms, spacious family room downstairs with plenty of light and views to the lake. Entryway with nearby laundry/mudroom. Large closets with interior organizational systems. Large two stall garage. Off peak furnace is easy on the pocketbook and beefy on heat. Hardwood and tile floors. Class act all the way. Caribou Lake has it all: good fishing, myriad bays and meandering shoreline for exploring. The woods surrounding are wild and rangy. Out on the boat, surrounded by the Caribou hills, you’re out of time and place, drifting easily under the sky of your life unfolding. All the fun of Lutsen is about 15 minutes away, not far to Grand Marais either. The BW is close. Snowmobiling and X/C skiing handy. However, why leave? Just hole up with the family and some games, do some woodworking, dream up and create something: timber-frame sauna, outdoor wood oven, cedar strip canoe, quilt, lefsa, a poem? This is the kind of place that has all the creature comforts and then some, allowing you to switch into another gear… Pause, reinvent, transform. Get back to your ideals, the simple pleasures.
