This romantic North Shore hide-away sits atop a thirty foot cliff overlooking beautiful Lake Superior. Perfect for that relaxing family vacation. Whatever the reason or the season, Aspenwood is the place to stay. Conveniently located in the Lutsen Tofte Recreation Area, known for its year round activities and beauty. Sorry, No Pets, and No Smoking, Please. Sleeps four comfortably.
This was a wonderful place to stay for a long weekend on the North shore. The fireplace made it a cozy shelter from unseasonably cold weather. The only disappoint was that the stairs to the lake were closed, probably because it was so late in the year. There were enough other places to walk just a short drive away though. Everything in the townhome was well thought out and very clean. I would absolutely return.
We typically stay a little further South (closer to Two Harbors) and were searching for something a little closer to Lutsen / Grand Marais. We found this location and the value was excellent. The place was nice, and easy to find. It had everything we needed. We all enjoyed a bath in the tub with jets. The fireplaces were nice on the cooler evenings. The master bedroom with views of the lake is amazing. We would absolutely stay here again.
Perfect for family fun, well located, clean and roomy
Seldom does a rental unit live up to the expectations that are seen on a website . This unit was marvelous and easily handled our family of six including four adults and two teenage boys . I would highly recommend This unit to anyone
This was the second time at this property and it is the best location on the Superior shore. Close to all attractions up and down the North Shore. Condo is fabulous with views you won't want to leave! Doesn't disappoint! Can't wait to return!
Loved everything about it. We'll be back!
From the easy booking process to the cozy feel of every room, we really enjoyed our stay at Aspenwood. We took full advantage of the whirlpool in the master bedroom as well as the movie collection provided. Great location by Lutsen, Tofte, and Grand Marais. Would highly recommend for just a couple or a family.
I have used VRBO on multiple occasions to book vacation rentals and without a doubt, Aspenwood is the best home we've ever had the privilege of staying in on our trips. Every single detail was thought of in the construction of Aspenwood and the view of Lake Superior is priceless. We will most definitely be back in the very near future!
We just returned from our long weekend at this town home. It could not have been any better! As other reviews said, it was so roomy, clean and relaxing. We stayed with our kids and so it was nice that everyone had a place to sleep unlike a hotel room would have and that the rooms were up a level from the living area. The kitchen was big and had anything you needed. The views of the lake were amazing from the kitchen, living area, dining room, and master bedroom. The two decks were very peaceful. It was nice to be able to fall asleep with the sound of the water coming in from the deck. We did plenty of hiking and tourist things around the cabin, but it was hard to stay away from this peaceful place! We will definitely return- well worth the trip! Thank you!
I think this has to be our favorite VRBO ever! Location is incredible! The townhouse was VERY CLEAN, comfortable and cozy. We really loved the deck off the master suite; the view of the lake was beautiful!!! We hiked everyday because of all the information provided about the area! Absolutely a perfect spot for us!
We were very impressed with the accomodations. Exceptionally well equiped kitchen, extra hooks for towels, ample linens, and a wonderful selection of current movies for viewing. Great sleeping arrangements we were able to sleep 6 comforatably. We loved most waking up each morning to the sound of the waves on the lake and being lulled to sleep each night by the waves. Good central location just 4 miles south of Lutsen and a short drive to Grand Marias. Thank you so much, we would stay here again. 4th night free is a wonderful value.
Our family of four really enjoyed our stay at this condo. The description and photos made the place look good but the reality was even better! It is very spacious, clean, comfortable & well-stocked. We also found the owners to be very accommodating when our travel plans were changed due to flooding in the Duluth area on the day we were scheduled to arrive. We highly recommend this condo!
My husband and I spent 4 spectacular nights celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary. What a place, extremely clean, wonderful views including the full moon. I can't wait to go back. Thank you so much!
I spent 4 nights here with my three grandchildren. This townhome has a complete assortment of pots, pans, sharp knives (even a Wuestof sharpener), measuring spoons, etc., necessary to prepare good meals for the 4 of us. I love to cook and the kitchen faces the lake, the dining room table and the great room which meant I could prepare meals while watching the grandkids having fun playing games or watching movies. We ate one meal out on the patio overlooking the lake. It is spotlessly clean and a great value. The master BR is very nice although I never used the jet tub or FP. It would be great in the winter! Roger and grandchildren, Saint Paul
We stayed for 4 nights this Christmas and had a wonderful stay in this property. Extremely spacious for our family of 4 this property was a real home from home. We have rented many properties through VRBO and this ranks as one of the best. Fantastic views of the lake from the living room, main bedroom and balconies. Usually we ski in Colorado or Utah and although Lutsen is limited it is uncrowded and very enjoyable. The family would like to go back in Summer. Thank you the Rozeks for sharing a great home.
Another stellar Sister's Weekend in your beautiful town home. I loved the new furniture; so comfy! Four days fly by in a blur.
This townhome was a perfect location on the North Shore. Minutes from Lutsen and 25 minutes from Grand Marais. My family and I loved the space and extra touches that made this rental superior to others. They had bug spray, sunscreen, facial cleansers, towels, full kitchen, coffee, and greeted with a bottle of wine. I loved that it was also located right on the trail so that my kids and I could bike/run each morning. You also can’t beat waking up to the crashing waves of the shore. This townhome comes highly recommended.
Everything was perfect for our trip. Would definitely stay here again!
Our family has been taking trips up the North Shore for the past 10 years. This is now one of my favorite places to stay. The description and photos matches the rental. The kitchen is well equipped with everything that you'll need to cook, grill or bake. Best part is having the doors and windows open and hearing the waves crash on the shore. It stayed remarkably cool with out air conditioning. Excellent location with a beautiful beach.
Great property and great hosts, we love the location (close to Lutsen), great kitchen, beautiful views of the lake and the movie selection.
Property was great! We'll be back for sure...
This is our third time staying here, and we hope to return again next year. Pictures are accurate. This place feels like a home away from home on the gorgeous north shore. The kitchen is well stocked with any dish you’d need to cook - the cookware is also all in great shape. The owner is responsive and clearly takes pride in their vacation home. We love that you can hear the waves from the living room and master bedroom- so relaxing!
Roomy, Clean, Great Views. Convient for hiking and napping.
Could not have been better. We all would recommend this place to everyone especially the sound of the waves at night. John and Katie
The home was very well kept as always,the view is wonderful.The beach is one of our favorites.Easy access up and down the north shore.Great hiking areas,rivers etc.We enjoyed the home and area very much,highly recommended.
had a great time, had everything we needed. Super clean and well appointed.. Thanks Jill
we really enjoyed our weekend relaxing and enjoying the views
We loved the location which was near many state parks that we enjoyed during our stay! The beach area was beautiful & great for skipping stones in Lake Superior. The townhouse had everything we needed for our stay. We grilled steaks a couple of the nights & then enjoyed a movie from the large collection while resting from the long days of hiking!
We spent 2 nights at this condo and had a great time. This was actually our second stay here. The condo has everything you need, very clean and more than enough room for two couples. The owner was great to work with. We were even greeted with a bottle of wine and lovely note. We would definitely stay here on our next trip to the North Shore.
Enjoyed a Summer weekend at this well maintained town home that overlooks Lake Superior. Easy to find and close to Lutsen resort and all the activities that it offers. The property has all the necessary kitchen gadgets and with a great Movie collection as well.
Great facilities and amenities
I enjoy the views of the lake no matter the season! After having not stayed here for a number of years, I was impressed with how well the property was maintained. Looks the same great condition as when I last stayed. This location works perfectly for us.
My wife and I spent the weekend at this townhouse on Lake Superior. The townhouse is easy to find and has a pretty good layout. It has an attached single stall garage which was a HUGE plus with below zero temps all weekend! The townhouse comes with the biggest movie collection we have ever seen - so needless to say we watched a few of them during our stay. We would definitely recommend this unit to others - but here are a few of the things that we believe would make the stay better. While we preferred to come and go out the garage all weekend others might prefer the front door which was not shoveled and looked to be covered in ice which could be dangerous. When we finally got to the townhouse about 4pm it was really cold inside....temps are set back to between 55-65 degrees inside and would have been nice to have turned up before we arrived. We immediately turned up the temps and started both fireplaces - it was finally comfortable about bed time. Others arriving later might find it difficult to be warm before bed time like we were which would not leave a good memory. Our last comment is maybe picky to some but I’m sure we’re not the only ones....we would expect a rental of this price range to come with more than single ply toilet paper..... everything else is nicely furnished - why skimp on that?. We have learned for future trips to bring our own I guess.... Views were very nice from the master bedroom, but we could not get out onto the balcony as it was covered in snow and ice - we were able to sweep off the lower balcony and sat out there for a little while on Saturday. Overall a really nice rental!
Cute, modern unit. All necessities available, fully stocked kitchen. Close to Lutsen.
Our family of four loved staying at this Lutsen-Tofte home, which was well-stocked, well-designed, clean and very comfortable. We will definitely look for an opportunity to return!
Beautiful views of Lake Superior. Great proximity to hiking and biking trails. Well built solid construction.
Have loved this condo for years!
We really enjoy our weekend at this rental. It's a really spacious and comfortable two level unit nicely located right on the lake. The attached garage space was a great perk. Definitely will stay here again!
We loved our three-day stay in the townhome in Aspenwood! All of the amenities of home and more. Beautiful vistas of Lake Superior! Very spacious and extremely clean. The pictures do not do it justice. The owner has an extensive DVD collection, which was nice on a rainy day! We will definitely rent this townhome next year!
We have rented quite a few houses and apartments and most of them have been great. This one was the best. It was flawlessly clean, the entire house seems like it had been updated recently, the views are amazing, etc., etc. We really enjoyed the area on the North Shore. The property is right on a bike path and the options for incredible hikes seemed endless. We were terribly sad to have to leave. You'll be thrilled if you book this place.
Property was nice, easy location to find and beautiful few of the lake. We would come back again with our family!
This is a wonderful unit - incredibly clean, well stocked, and nice location. We would definitely stay here again!
First real experience being on the north shore. Can't really complain about the place. Clean, great kitchen and dinning area. Pictures really don't do it justice. The townhome is bigger then you'd expect. DVD collection is impressive to say the least. There are a few things that I can get nit picky about. I wish there was a fire pit and the beds were harder then I'm used too. Outside of some really little things not worth mentioning we had a great. Went with 4 adults and no kids. Had a blast. Ps do your research on the area, Zups in silver Bay is probably the closest real grocery store in the area.
Beautiful place! We enjoyed our stay immensely. The townhome is beautiful and had everything we needed. It was a perfect setup for our family. It was quiet and peaceful, the beach was amazing, and the views were gorgeous. The owner was very easy to work with. We hope to come back someday!
We had a lovely time staying at this town home. It was very clean and had everything we needed. It was nice to wake up to a view of the lake and sit and have coffee. The owners seemed very nice and easy to deal with. 20 minutes from quaint Grand Marais and some great restaurants.
Everything was great. Looked exactly like in the photos, really clean and tidy. I would recommend this place for sure.
From the location, design, layout, choice and placement of furnishings, finish work, perfect cleanliness, to the thoughfulness and consideration of the owners... could not have found a better place for a happy getaway. Taking great memories away, will definitely be checking availability for another stay. Perfect!
We had a wonderful experience. The condo was stocked with everything we needed. It was very clean and the view was beautiful!
This property exceeded our expectations and was the perfect for a family vacation! The owners were personable and really went the extra mile to see that their property meets all your needs! We were greeted with a bottle of wine upon arrival which was a greatly appreciated bonus! Our 3 year old daughter called the place amazing and did not want to leave! From puzzles to board games to a great selection of movies they have you covered for inside activities. You are only a few miles from the ski hill and winery, walking distance to trails and the beautiful shore so your outdoor activities are covered as well! The views were amazing to wake up and go to bed too. My only hesitation about writing this review is that it might be harder to book for our future trips! Thanks so much for sharing this gem of at the North Shore.
Another wonderful long weekend at this property! It is so clean and beautifully appointed. The view is fantastic!! Thank you.
The townhome was a perfect place for our family to getaway for a long weekend. It was close to cross country trails and Lutsen Mountain but also had an amazing DVD selection and puzzles. The kitchen had all we needed to make most of our meals right there. We hated to leave!
We had an absolute blast on our trip to the north shore. The Townhome was clean, spaceous and exactly what we could have hoped for. Amazing view and a perfect location. 5 minutes from Tofte and the Coho Cafe and then 5 minutes from Lutsen Mountain for the best of midwestern skiing. The movie collection was very impressive and myself, my wife and my two daughters couldn't have been happier. We will be back!!
My daughter and i had a wonderful weekend
Our family of six just returned from three terrific nights at Aspenwood. The pictures viewed online prior to our trip were good, but couldn't adequately this wonderfully appointed unit. Nothing was lacking. Neat as it could be and an ideal lakeside location close to x-country and downhill trails.
This property is everything we were looking for: clean, comfortable, quiet, homey. We would recommend this place and will go back if we vacation up north again. You can't beat 4th night free deal either!
This townhome provided us with a delightful comfortable place for us to call home for 4 days. Dave thought of so many small touches that added to our enjoyable stay. It was very clean, a huge DVD library, a well equipped kitchen, and a quiet, beautiful environment. If we are ever in this area again, this would definitely be our first choice to stay.
This was a great retreat to come back to after some challenging hikes! It was clean, comfortable, and had two wonderful decks to enjoy the view! It really does have everything you need. The hiking trails around here are abundant and lead to some beautiful sights.
Big space - perfect for a large family gathering. Good kitchen / eating / living space. Nicely cared for, clean and updated, very comfy beds, bonus garage parking, great deal for a perfect location.
This was a fabulous place - even better than the pictures! It was spotlessly clean and very well-equipped. Beds were very comfortable. You can't beat going to sleep to the sound of the waves on the lake! Dave sent great directions and it was easy to access the key when we got there. There were complete instructions on how to operate all the appliances, TVs, etc. We will definitely recommend to our friends and hope to stay again sometime.
We stayed there for a long weekend in April. It was a beautiful home to stay in. Everything was impeccably clean and extremely comfortable. It was much better than any luxury resort on the north shore and much less expensive. We hope to stay again in the future, and next time maybe we will bring the kids ;) P.S. If you are looking for a fantastic place to have dinner, try the Gun Flint Tavern in Grand Marais.
Everything in this townhome is perfect
We had an absolutely wonderful four night getaway at this lovely property. A completely hassle free rental process, the owner was great to work with. The townhouse itself is fantastic! Immaculate, spacious, well furnished and with a well stocked kitchen. The view from the two decks is priceless, Lake Superior is so close that you can hear the waves crashing. We would not hesitate to recommend this townhouse, and hope to return ourselves sometime soon.
Books, puzzles, DVDs, guides, impeccably clean, tastefully decorated, excellent location, internet, cable, this unit's got it all whether you want to explore or laze away the day. Should have stayed longer.
My wife and I recently returned from a wonderful vacation at Aspenwood. I cannot say enough about how incredible this home is. The view of Lake Superior from the two decks is spectacular. The home itself is immaculate, well-maintained and sparkling clean. It is decorated like something out of a magazine -- it has just the right touches everywhere, and has the perfect theme for a North Shore lake home. Everything is there to allow for a comfortable, relaxing vacation. The owners even leave information about area attractions, restaurants and more in binders on the counter. We spent a lot of time just relaxing on the decks and enjoying the views, but there is plenty to do if you feel like exploring the area. Split Rock Lighthouse, Gooseberry Falls, Grand Marais, the Gunflint Trail, and the Lutsen Mountain ski area are all nearby. We even drove up to Thunder Bay for lunch one day. I would wholeheartedly recommend this home to anyone -- it can't be beat!
Wow, I don't even know what to say. This was the most pleasant get away you could ever wish for in the area. No stone left unturned. The attention to every last detail was amazing. The cleanest rental property I've ever been to and the lowest price out there. The view was breathtaking. I was blown away by the hospitality and how much effort was put into this property. Their pride in ownership was apparent in every room. Everything was so spread out, lots of space for everyone. My husband and I took 6 teenage boys and there was plenty of room for all. LOVED IT!!! Will be back as soon as possible!
Aspenwood is the perfect place to stay on the North Shore!! Our family had a blast and can't wait to go back again. The townhome was spot less to say the least. My family loved being so close to everything, but still having the peace and quiet you expect on the North Shore. We will be back again next year.
My husband and I just spent 4 days at this beautiful condo and had a fantastic time. The condo was impeccably clean and comfortable and the view so beautiful. It was just what we needed for a few days R&R. We are frequent visitors to the North Shore and this was by far one of the nicest places we've stayed for the money. We will return. Thanks!
This property was in excellent condition, clean, well decorated. Everything you want is in the townhome. It is located in a good place for going to many of the State Parks along the North Shore. The owner was very accommodating and even left a bottle of wine for me to enjoy. I would definitely recommend this property to others. Hope to stay again sometime.
This is an absolutely beautiful place to stay. We loved everything about it!
Better than expected, townhome was spotless. Very beautiful location. Lots of personal touches in the town home. Very comfortable relaxing location.
We recently stayed at this property for a long winter weekend. The townhouse was well appointed and very clean -- the cleanest! We were also greated with a lovely bottle of wine! Very cozy to curl up in front of the fireplace when it was too cold for outdoor activities. The view was wonderful. Nice access to trails for skiing, snowshoeing! Thank you very much!
Our family loved our stay at Aspenwood! Gorgeous views of the lake and there was plenty of room for everyone! You can't find a place to stay with this many amenities for this price anywhere on the North Shore! We will be back again!
My wife and I stayed there for four days following our wedding. The accomodations were incredible. For the North Shore, this place can not be beat. The only bad thing is not finding time to get back. Thanks again!
We had the most wonderful stay/vacation. The experiance at Aspenwood was just great. Very Clean, Maintained well, with plenty of Amenities at your fingertips. Definitly family friendly accommadation.
Thank you for the lovely accomodation!
We have stayed at many places along the north shore but have never had such wonderful accommodations as Aspenwood. It is hard to believe such a beautiful place is available for rental. Top quality throughout the unit. We hated to go home. This unit will definitely be used by us annually.
Great location, great view, always spotlessly clean. look forwar to our stay every year.
Fantastic! Clean, tastefully decorated and really gorgeous! Will absolutely be going back. Wonderful for 4 people or a couple with 2-3 kids. Garage is a nice bonus, as is the movie collection. Great deal and an overall A+!
Loved it - we'll be back!
A true winter wonderland - the lake is beautiful in the moonlight, as is the snow covered beauty of the entire North Shore. One of the best times we've ever had on a vacation. Thanks!
An absolutely beautiful place to stay, extremely relaxing. We had a wonderful time!
We enjoyed ourselves at this incredible rental property. Location was perfect for everything we wanted to do. We hope to make this an annual trip and we'd love to use this property again!
My husband and I wanted a quiet, relaxing and romantic weekend away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. This condo was perfect! We listened to the waves hitting the beach in the quiet of the night while snuggling on the balcony star gazing! The condo was clean and inviting! I hope to escape there again!
Our family of 5 stayed very comfortably here, thoroughly enjoying the view and amenities. We had compared a number of vacation rentals and none available had the beautiful lakefront view plus space for us all, plenty of bathrooms, a hot tub to relax in, 4th night free and sooo many great movies to choose from. We played games, cooked together, hiked lots of local trails and enjoyed the walking path accessible right in front of the unit. We were also very impressed with how immaculate everything was.
My wife and I spent 4 nights at this beautiful condo and had a wonderful time. The condo was just how it looked in the photos, impeccably clean, very comfortable and the view was beautiful. We really needed a few days of peace and quiet, and that's exactly what we were blessed with during this stay. We visit the North Shore often, and this was the nicest place we've stayed yet! And the customer service was tops - no hassles with money, and we found an honest owner who accommodated us completely. We will return. Thanks!
