One of a kind, open/loft-concept (see pics: it really is open) artisan-crafted lake home on Superior's south shore: paddle in summer/ice hike in winter. Breathtaking sunsets. 300+ feet of private shoreline or short walk to public beach. Great kitchen. Up to 8 people and most dogs welcome - PET FEE: pets are an extra $25 (there is a place to leave this next to the house manual on the kitchen counter) Scenic huge patio with built-in fire pit (BYO firewood)
We hope you love it as much as we do!

The space
We are situated right on Lake Superior's South Shore. It is a really special place and design, where artists have recorded albums here, bestselling books written (really!), marriages begun and anniversaries celebrated, and many beautiful memories made. We kept this for ourselves and our close friends for 13 years, but as our kids became teenagers and we were able to get here less, we wanted to bless others by sharing its unique beauty and incomparable setting. It is a very special place and because of this we ask that you respect the property so we have a rather strict policy for NO EXCESS DRINKING PARTIES. Please understand we want you to have fun, but please be respectful for our neighbors and our dwelling. Thank you so much for understanding.

PLEASE NOTE that the listing price per night is based on the occupancy of 2 adults, there is an additional guest fee of $25 per person/night beyond 2. This is calculated automatically in the reservation calculator so you will know the total cost when you go to book for your stay.

**Please note all pics and captions - the uniqueness of the home may make it unsuitable for your needs: for example, we don't have traditional bedrooms with 4 walls and a door, and the staircase IS NOT little kid friendly! We want you happy, comfortable and safe, so do your homework by reading entire listing and viewing the pics!!

Guest access
Guests have access to the home and all outside spaces. Garage, hot tub, and storage building are NOT included!

PLEASE NOTE: We have installed security cameras on both the entrances to insure your safety - also that we have a check point on the number of guests to match the reservations. Please remember that pets are an extra $25 add when you book the reservation.

Other things to note

*Again, we emphasize: Home has a VERY OPEN floorplan; be sure you look over pics well and note the lack of walls!! People requiring a lot of privacy WILL NOT find it here! It's gorgeous, unique and fun, but you want to be sure you are quite comfortable with your housemates! Also think VERY carefully and study pics (especially of staircase!) well before considering a stay with young children. For safety reasons, we DO NOT recommend our home for crawlers and toddlers! We personally love this next aspect, but just be aware: Herbster is remote - it's basically the country, with the nearest gas and small grocery store 8 miles away. Our Internet is fiber optic and usually always works, but if you're an executive expecting to work and vacation at the same time, or you want to walk to shops, dining, etc. a larger town is probably going to be better for you.
Our Bark Point retreat is large and gorgeous, but it's still a "cabin." Come for a quiet retreat, not a "brand new condo" experience ;)

We are on the water facing west: a rare, wonderful find on Lake Superior. Across the water (way across!) on a clear night, you can see the lights from Duluth all the way to Little Marais! The south shore has SO much to offer! Summer water and cycling adventures and winter skiing, snowshoeing, ice-cave oogling, to name a few.
