The space
If you love a vintage vibe and unique spaces and experiences, then this absolutely charming North Shore getaway—with its artful mix of antique, vintage, and modern décor—is for you!

This independently owned and operated, nearly 500 square foot, 1-bedroom end unit is the only 1-bedroom condo in its homeowners association to have windows on 2 sides (2 south-facing and 2 west-facing)—offering multiple vantage points for taking in the breathtaking environs, sunrises and sunsets, and symphony of sounds. Fall asleep to Superior’s waves, or the babbling creek that meanders alongside the unit just a few feet away from your bedroom window. Enjoy all the modern conveniences you’ll need to make your stay as comfortable as possible, including a fully stocked kitchen with microwave and dishwasher, spa-like shower with both overhead rain and handheld fixtures, air conditioning, free WiFi, king bed, and ample dresser & side-table drawers for conveniently storing clothes and other belongings during your stay. Light a fire in the real wood-burning fireplace, then kick back, relax, and stream your favorite show or movie from the Smart TV; give in to your competitive side by cracking open one of the several available vintage board games; or thumb through the collection of original vintage home decorating and LIFE magazines.

The unit is in a quiet building that is well-maintained by a full-time maintenance person and live-in caretaker. Guests enjoy full access to all of the building's common-area amenities listed under "Guest access" below, and will especially appreciate this end unit’s proximity to the building’s exterior door for quick and easy access to the parking area for loading/unloading.

The high-elevation property showcases some of the most stunning, panoramic views and natural beauty the North Shore has to offer. Grab a cup o’ joe and watch the sun rise from the comfort of your own private patio. Take one of several sets of stairs—located just feet from your patio—leading directly down to the dramatic shoreline; one with mid-point perches for sitting, relaxing, and taking in the sights and sounds. When you’re ready for a walk, bike ride, or run, connecting trails offer endless opportunities for exploration. And excellent nearby restaurants and convenience stores make it easy to refuel after a long day of adventures.

Other things to note
- The condo has a Smart TV for streaming shows and movies on Netflix, Hulu, etc; there is no cable/satellite, or broadcast TV available.

- This is our second home, we love it, and we hope you do, too! We've put a great deal of thought and effort into making it a truly special and meaningful retreat. Much of the space's distinction and charm has to do with the fact that so many of its contents are one-of-a-kind, genuine vintage antiques and collectibles, so please use extra care and caution with these irreplaceable items. We sincerely hope you find the space just as unique and rewarding as we do. Thank you and enjoy!

Location

Tofte, Minnesota, United States

The immediate Tofte-Lutsen area offers some of the most stunning natural beauty and opportunities for fun and exploration of any locale on Lake Superior’s North Shore. The experience is similar to being on the ocean (think coast of Maine) with dramatic views, rocky cliffs, crashing waves, and endless blue water. Fall colors are unparalleled. The Gitchi-Gami state trail runs directly alongside the property for easy access to biking, running, walking, or cross-country skiing. Endless hiking options at any number of state parks—including the stunning Temperance River—are a mere minutes away. In 10 minutes you can be at Lutsen Mountain to experience some of the best skiing, snowboarding, and panoramic gondola rides in Minnesota. There’s a winery, several delicious restaurants, quaint general stores, and more all within a few-minutes’ drive in either direction. And Grand Marais is less than 30 miles away for charming shops, restaurants, cafes, galleries, and more.

I am a writer and self-professed history and architecture geek. I love the creative process of taking a long-neglected old house and restoring it back to its original glory. When I'm not working on some home restoration project, I enjoy picking up the next great "find" at an estate sale or antique shop, meeting up with friends for a great dinner, catching a good movie or live concert, hanging out with my dogs, running, the outdoors, gardening, traveling, spending time at my second home on the North Shore of Lake Superior, and sharing my homes with friends, family, and guests.
