Lake Superior Solitude

Windsong Drive | Beaver Bay, MN 55601

This is our vacation home, and it is our pleasure to share it with fellow north shore lovers.  We were sold on the place the minute we walked in the door and saw the dramatic wall of windows overlooking Lake Superior.  In warmer months, the deck is the the place to be, relax with coffee as the sun rises over the lake, return after a day of exploring for quiet conversation as the sun sets.  We have a gas grill on the deck so you can cook dinner lakeside, there’s room to do it all!

The Gitchi-Gami State Trail is at the top of Windsong Drive, walk or ride bikes to Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls.  Palisade Head and Tettegouche State Park are a few miles up 61.  With easy access to Superior Hiking Trail, you can hike for miles, and in winter, snowshoe and cross country ski trails are nearby. You can snowmobile right from Windsong.

Windsong is a small lakeside townhome community, not a busy resort.  Enjoy the amenities of an upscale resort without the noise and crowds.  Indoor Heated pool, (open between Memorial Day weekend and New Year’s Day), a year around sauna and a fire pit are a short walk away.  Come be our guests at Lake Superior Solitude, you’ll love it as much as we do.
