3824 Cascade Beach Rd | Lutsen, MN 55612
Perched between the edge of Lake Superior and Cascade River State Park’s open forest, WoodSong was completely rebuilt in 2016. From the overall design to the hand-forged ironwork, this inspired cabin was spared no expense in its attention to detail. The most unique aspect might be its historic fish house, located right at water’s edge. One of the few surviving original fish houses, it has been repurposed as an enchanted covered patio — perfect for morning coffee and evening wine.

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 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.
