If you like your nature up close and personal, then this quiet and coveted Cascade Beach Road location is for you! The sweet little red cabin sits down close to Lake Superior so you have a continuous show of the ever-changing moods and colors of the greatest of Lakes. An abundance of wild creatures shares your heavily wooded special spot and they frequently venture close just outside your wall of windows overlooking the woods and water. Owls, chipmunks, bears, deer, fishers, turkeys, raccoons, foxes, flying squirrels, pileated woodpeckers, snowshoe hares and even the bobcat are frequent visitors to entertain and delight any nature lover. The white pelicans, merganser families, ducks of all kinds, eagles, hawks, woodpeckers, migrating warblers, hummingbirds and loons make regular appearances. Lupins, wild roses and asters all offer natural seasonal bursts of color. The cabin was built in the late 1950s by the iconic North Shore master builder Harold Moe and features his signature hand-cut wood ceiling tiles in the original one-room cabin, now the central great room. A separate living room, three bedrooms, two new (2016) bathrooms and Bellawood maple hardwood floors have been added over the years and the cabin floor plan was opened up and renovated in 2016 to make this a cozy year-round nature retreat. There is both a heat-circulating wood-burning fireplace and a freestanding gas fireplace stove to keep you warm no matter how cold it gets outside. Snowfalls blanket the surrounding pines and turn the winter scene into a fairyland of “thick frosting on trees”. This is a very private location with shoreline views that visually expand the property boundaries. Sunrises are spectacular and the waves hitting the rocky shore lull you to sleep. Access to the water is easy and the shoreline boulders make grand seats for July 4th fireworks or provide a safe place to launch a kayak, fish or dip your toes into the frigid water. A fire pit with seating at the shore means making many happy memories with family and friends. Cascade Beach Road is a prime vacation rental opportunity location because of its heavily wooded privacy away from Highway 61 noise and traffic as well as offering rare close proximity to accessible Lake Superior shoreline.
