    Very cute cabin with an amazing view. Conveniently walking distance to Lutsen Resort. Only issue was that we requested to have both bedrooms/bathrooms open as it was myself and a friend, and one was locked when we arrived. Thankfully our husbands ended up being able to join us at the last minute, and were able to get it open... $25 per night per extra guest was a bit steep I found. But otherwise a very nice stay.

    Fabulous views, including a bald eagle out front. Two large bedrooms and comfy couch worked great, impressive kitchen space and equipment although we would add steel mixing bowls. Very clean. Stairs up to the space were a surprise, but sturdy and manageable. But if you can’t do stairs, this isn’t for you.

    The condo is even better than the photos! Very comfortable beds/rooms, we made great use of the fire pit, and the lake is just a short walk away. There's loads of things to do close by in whichever direction you go.

    This was a beautiful property. It was modestly rustic which was what we wanted.

    View was wonderful, access to rocky lake superior shore was nice. Only a few small issues with appliances but the property was truly what we were looking for as a quiet retreat. Better than a cabin and all the conveniences of a home. Would recommend as a retreat to reconnect with friends and family. 4 people is a perfect group size for this space.

    We had a lovely long weekend and Hidden Cove. Sandi was so helpful and accommodating. The bonfire was ready to go for a nighttime warm up by the lake after our walk. Superior National golf was right across the road for as much golf as we wanted. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. as did the rest of the home. The worst of it that the weather was fantastic so we didn't get to spend much time on the property. Overall had a lovely time overall. Can't say enough about it.

    Sandi has the best property we could have imagined on the North Shore; adjacent to the Lutsen Resort. My three step kids had never been out of the Kansas City area and I was excited to take them up the North Shore for the first time. I have so many great memories of my own up north. They were in awe of Lake Superior and all of the trails and waterfalls. They could've spent all day everyday on the private beach searching for rocks, and even enjoyed the chilly water. The accommodations were perfect for our new family of 5. I hope to make this a yearly tradition! Thanks for a great stay, Sandi! Your property is amazing!

We were close to so many things to do whether hiking a nearby trail or making the short drive in to Grand Marais. Lutsen Mountain was just across the road where we could visit the local winery or have a casual but delicious dinner at the resort restaurant. Our host was wonderful to work with and very accommodating. We would definitely recommend it!

    We stayed at this lovely place for two nights in mid October. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Sandi, a wonderful and very pleasant hostess. The views of the lake are unsurpassed. And the manner in which this property is maintained is impeccable. The only drawback: We felt that the price for two nights (lodging, taxes, cleaning, linens, towels, additional guest fees and VRBO service fee) was on the high side. However, despite this, we would definitely recommend Hidden Cove. Thank you, Sandi!

    No matter what your reason for visting the North Shore, Hidden Cove is the perfect home base. The spacious layout and plentiful amenities truly make it feel like home. It was very comfortable for the 3 adults in our party. Our goals were a little sightseeing and a lot of quiet "kick back" time. The great view of the lake, the lovely gardens spread out beneath the enormous windows, and the quiet surroundings provided the perfect setting for that goal. So much more private and relaxed than a hotel or resort. Perfect weather and a lack of bugs, not a given on the North Shore, only added to our enjoyment. And of course there's Sandi, the heart and crown jewel of Hidden Cove. The Sperry's Minneapolis

    My sons and I went to Lutsen to snow ski. First time we had been to the area. While searching for lodging, I happened across this property. It looked promising but I had no idea how nice it truly is! We arrived late at night so could not see our surroundings at first. We could however hear the the waves against the shore. We awoke to one of the most beautiful sunrises over the lake I have ever seen! Sandi's home is very beautiful! Very comfortable and extremely clean. Also very well decorated and accentuated. She was very accommodating and called a couple times to make sure we had arrived and that we also made it home safely. Very thoughtful! We will definitely look forward to visiting again!

    Views view views! Amazing! It feels like you are at the ocean. Water as far as you can see. Nice property, big yard, trails that will bring you right to Lutsen resort. The price was right and location perfect. The one thing I wish we would have known is that the beach at the property is not usable, it is a very steep decline to the water. We had our 3 year old with us and there was no way I could get to the water with her. This was not a big deal but from the pictures it looks like you would be able to get to the water more easily and we had hoped to launch our kayaks from the property. The beach is more for looking at than using (at the property). Lutsen resort however is a short 10 minute walk and you can easily get to that beach, and so we did that multiple times per day to play in the sand and throw rocks. This is not a deal breaker by any means just something to be aware of if you have kids. Nice also to have a restaurant / bar within walking distance. The trails from the property to Lutsen resort were some of our favorite pastimes, really pretty and fun to see the big rocks and waves splashing. Clean and nicely maintained property. Very nice yard. Comfortable. Very nice setup with two beds and two baths and open plan. It was fun to cook in the kitchen and see the lake. I would recommend it.

This condo was in the perfect location for getting to all our daily adventures but also was a delight when relaxing on the property. The views of the Lake are just amazing and we spent time in the private cove searching for agates and playing in the water. In the evening we used our telescope to view the nighttime sky minus the big city lights that ruin our views back at home. Our host was invaluable when it came to the best places to eat and locations not to miss and some fun historical info too. We are considering coming back in the winter to enjoy sking at the Lutsen resort just minutes from this property.

    We spent two wonderful weeks at Hidden Cove. The views of the lake are fantastic. The condo is very clean and comfortable and we were able to do several meals in the well-equipped kitchen. There is a path to a hidden cove on the lake. The way down to the actual beach is not easy but certainly worth the effort. We enjoyed sitting on the rocks overlooking the lake and just taking in the views. The property is very peaceful and there is a walking path which takes you to the Lutsen Resort along the lake. There are many beautiful hiking trails in the area and Grand Marais is only 20 minutes away. Sandi Furlow is a wonderful hostess and we enjoyed meeting her and hearing more about the history of the area. She is also a wealth of knowledge regarding shopping, hiking and other activities. If you are planning a trip to the north shore Hidden Cove would be a wonderful place to stay.

    This place is sweet. Open floor plan, as close to Lutsen Mountain as you can get while still right on the lake, with views that are second-to-none. And Sandi, the owner, is a doll. The beds and linens are hotel-quality comfortable. Even the pull-out hide-a-bed is nice. The furnishings are aesthetic and comfortable. (But it needs a second Lazy-Boy, Sandi.) The living room and dining room are covered in lovely pine. The covered deck, overlooking the lake, catches wonderful sun all day long. Talk Sandi into replacing the old, electric coil stove with a nice new gas one, and then it would even have a great cooking kitchen.

    This was a quaint condo in a beautiful setting, close to everything the Lutsen area has to offer. We hiked, biked and kayaked, but we also just enjoyed relaxing at this beautiful property. Although there is a kitchen, don't plan on doing a lot of cooking as there is no exhaust fan. My husband and I made breakfast one morning (eggs, hash browns, sausage) and even with all windows open and the ceiling fan on the smoke detector kept going off unless I fanned the air away from it with a newspaper.

    Sandi thought of most everything you might need, and the view was nice, condo is quite spacious and stocked, very nice and quiet too. The walk down to the lake is not super difficult but one does need to have some hiking ability, and if you are at the condo you cannot see anyone down by the lake as it is a pretty solid vertical drop. Worth the trip down there though.

    My husband and I stayed for five nights with our three-year-old, and we definitely fell in love with Hidden Cove. The property and the condo are gorgeous and very well-maintained. And the views from the condo are amazing. We loved watching how the sky and the lake would change every day (every hour). It is right next to Lutsen Resort, but you still feel far away from it all. There are so many things to do in the area. We hiked in a couple state parks, rode the tram at Lusten, visited Grand Marais for some great food and art, and kayaked right from the private beach - a great launching point (note: you can either carry your kayak down the somewhat steep hill below the condo, or you can easily launch it from the beach at Lusten Resort). We will definitely be back. Sandi was away during our visit, so we never met her; however, she was very responsive to our e-mails.

    Having grown up on the North Shore, my siblings and I wanted to make a trip back to memory lane. We stayed at Hidden Cove which was so incredibly peaceful, beautiful and private. You would not have known there was anyone else "up North" at all. The condo has absolutely anything you could want and if not, Sandi will get it for you. Our wish was her command. So personable, helpful and fun to be around as well and the property is so wonderfully cared for and so very clean. We have known Sandi's family for a very long time, she would have made Fritz so proud to see this beautiful property thrive with so much care and love. We recommend this as more than a 5+ rating to anyone. Anyone going to the area from Schroeder to Grand Marais should seek out Hiddden Cove and stay there. We hiked, we reminisced, we gazed at the lake and watched an eagle land in the trees. A beautiful, wonderful weekend.

    Hidden Cove's location is perfect! It is close to Tofte and a short drive to Grand Marais. It is also centrally located to the North Shore's fabulous state parks and the Superior Hiking Trail. The condo was very clean and the property is quiet and feels secluded. Sandi, the owner, is a treasure of warmth and information.

    My husband and I just returned from Hidden Cove and we're already homesick. We've stayed on the North Shore in literally dozens of places and we've found it. Home. The views are 360 degrees, the home itself impeccable and, really, the best part was Sandi! The privacy cannot be beat, having your own beach cannot be beat. This property has been with their family since 1948 and you feel that settled the minute you arrive. Pictures don't do justice nor words. Hesitant to write this review because it's a hidden gem!

    My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon. We were looking for a quite place to escape to relax for a few days and Hidden Cove delivered. It is the perfect location, with stunning view of Lake Superior, right next to the Lutsen resort and ski area, and a short drive away from Grand Marais. We particularly enjoyed sitting in the kitchen, watching the steam rise over the lake and listening to the waves roll in. Nature is abundant, both in the area and at Hidden Cove. Our first night we were visited by a young buck and we were a short drive from multiple hiking options. Sandy is friendly and thoughtful as an owner. She was easy to work with while booking our trip. When she stopped by on our first day there to see how everything was, she was able to suggest things to do in the area. She also invited us to share dinner with her on New Year's Eve if we did not have other plans. My wife and I are already talking about trying to make a return visit. It was everything we wanted for our honeymoon.

    This condo was amazing!!! Beautiful view from the deck and huge picture windows in kitchen and living room. It was absolutely spotless too, inside and out. We loved that you can hear the waves from inside!!! Such a perfect location too. Close to Temperance state park (beautiful beach), Cascade state park, and only about 20 mins to Grand Marais which is a great little town, make sure and stop at "worlds best donuts". We were here in the summer so we went up to Lutsen ski resort and went on the gondolas and alpine slides. We will definitely be back to Lutsen and wouldn't stay anywhere but here. Comfy beds, quiet & private location, beautiful beach, also Sandi was extremely helpful and made sure we had everything we could possible need!

    We stayed 5 nights. The condo was clean and the June weather was beautiful. We saw rainbows right from our bay windows, which of course then drew us outside to get a better picture! The wind picked up one day and the waves were beautiful. The kitchen was sufficiently supplied with cooking tools, which we used every morning and evening for our meals. We didn't use the TV. WiFi service was sufficient for our needs (you need to ask owner, Sandi, to turn it on when needed). We enjoyed the deck overlooking the water and did use the fire pit one night for cooking brats. Sandi was available to answer questions and give suggestions for sight-seeing. We had no problems and had a beautiful time!

    We were so happy with our stay at Hidden Cove! We spent three days skiing at Lutsen Mountain and returned at the end of the day to our home away from home. It truly is such a cozy home! It was so clean and the decor was warm and inviting. We had everything we could need other than bringing our food and personal items. Sandi, the owner, was so welcoming and helpful. She told us about the area and suggested places to eat and where we could find other things we might need during our four day stay. The view was beautiful out every large window. It was wonderful every morning looking at the lake while drinking coffee and watching the ice move about and the beauty of the shoreline. The deer were plentiful and it was fun spotting them each day. I will recommend Hidden Cove to family and friends and will be back for another stay!

    Pretty tough to find anything not to like about this property. The directions were explicit and easy to follow. The owner was easy to work with and very helpful. She was also very friendly and upbeat. We felt our comfort and happiness were the most important things in her day. Any and all questions were answered immediately. The unit was very clean, as were the furnishings and appliances. Everything worked and there wasn't anything we needed for our four day stay that wasn't provided. The grill was clean and worked very well. The owner does ask that you bring your own charcoal or replace what you use. The L.P. gas lighter makes starting the coals a snap. There is a great deck with a bistro style table that is perfect for watching the waves and sipping cool beverages or morning coffee. A very short hike will bring you to Lutsen's resort with it's pub and restaurant. Superior National Golf course is less than 5 minutes away, and the town of Grand Marais is less than 20 miles. up the road. If I had a lake home, this would be the model for it. Secluded, airy with lots of windows and a great view. Worth the trip!

    We enjoyed our time at Hidden Cove, and I would most definitely return. The owner is very personable, and attentive to any needs. Our beds were comfortable, and we enjoyed cooking in the large kitchen. The view from inside and the wrap around deck is just beautiful, we could hear the waves, and found it so relaxing. We walked to Lutsen Lodge down a really fun path through the woods, following along the Lake. The unit is an upstairs apartment above the owners house, but quite private with a separate entrance. The only drawback I found was the WIFI. It worked when the owner was using it, and after an hour it automatically shuts off. She did say she could turn it on whenever we wanted, just to call her. So maybe I should have asked. My bad. I would certainly return, and probably will!

    My husband and I drove up to Lutsen for a "getaway" ski trip. After much research on the area's lodging opportunities we decided to stay at the "Hidden Cove" condo. We were not disappointed in any way! The condo is very cozy and it really feels like you are at a home away from home. The place is literally spotless upon arrival, I was so impressed! The owner has the property stocked with everything you might need - except for personal items and food, of course. The decor is great, all of the appliances/entertainment work, the leather furniture comfy, and the wood stove for the winter was amazing! My husband says he has never slept so well, the bed was perfect (and we were exhausted). There are huge windows all around the front of the condo and the views both in daylight and at night of Lake Superior were breathtaking. The lake dynamics were so cool - sometimes there was open water and sometimes ice, it was always changing. Lutsen Mountains ski hills are literally a little over a mile away, it was very convenient. The owner is such a sweetheart, she is willing to do what it takes to make this place a home for anyone. While driving around the area we got to view a lot of the other lodging opportunities and we were SO glad we chose "Hidden Cove." Highly recommended.

    Just a lovely place with a outstanding view. I've never stayed in a property so clean and well stocked. The owner had thought of things to such detail. Has a flair for design. Very good taste in decorating. Eat breakfast in front of a huge window overlooking the lake. Have a refreshment on the deck in the afternoon on the wrap around deck. Wonderful leather furniture with a nice LCD TV. Beds were VERY comfortable. The master bedroom was stunning in decoration also with a view of the lake. Both bedrooms have bathrooms. Take the walking trail to the Hidden Cove below the property or go to the resort for dinner on the path over the covered bridge! This rental is a gem. I can't think of anything that would disappoint anybody. We shall return again next year for certain.
