You'll want to take a closer look at the Eagles Nest log cabin building, a vacation property that offers the total experience. The handcrafted log cabin is located in Tofte, Minnesota, and has a 360-degree view from the Eagles Nest Lookout, an elevated screened porch, and 2,309 square feet of space, helping you to enjoy your Northwood vacation. There are 740 square feet of deck space, a cozy loft for lounging, a catwalk, vaulted ceilings, and a rec room in addition to the 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The cabin building is in the Wildwood Acres neighborhood (a rural residential setting) about 1.5 miles north of Tofte.
The area the log cabin building is located is residential but very quiet and peaceful. One of the largest vacation rental homes that are available, the Eagles Nest cabin building is popular among larger families, those who are planning family reunions, and groups of friends who are looking forward to enjoying a getaway together. There is enough room for 11 guests to stay comfortable so you can bring everyone to enjoy the Tofte/Lutsen area on Lake Superior's North Shore.
The Eagles Nest cabin building is centrally located to a lot of the North Shore's most popular attractions. During your vacation stay you are just a short drive away from the beautiful Oberg Mountain Scenic Overlook and hiking trail, a must-see during the leaf changing season. You can head down the shore and check out the Temperance River State Park or head up the shore and you will find the Cascade River State Park which is both great for hiking and enjoying some beautiful waterfalls. The Gitchi Gami Bike Trail runs along Highway 61, the trail is enjoyed by bikers and walkers alike. The Lutsen Mountains recreation area is just 10-miles away and offers plenty of summer and winter activities, including downhill skiing, the alpine slide, and a scenic gondola up to the Moose Mountain Summit. During your vacation stay, you can enjoy the many restaurants and live music that is offered year-round on the mountain, as well.
Whether you are visiting the Eagles Nest in the summer, fall, winter, or spring the list of things to do is seemingly endless. In the summer months, the North Shore brings mild temperatures and tons of outdoor activities, including hiking and mountain biking. In the fall the color change on the North Shore is unlike anywhere else in the country, with colors so vibrant the hills look like they are on fire. In the winter months, the area is a premier downhill skiing destination and you can easily find cross country ski trails, snowmobile trails, and even groomed fat bike trails. The spring is considered waterfall season, as this is when the snow melts inland and makes its way toward Lake Superior when the waterfalls come to life and are a sight to be seen. The waterfalls also form along the edge of Highway 61 so you can enjoy them during a leisurely drive up and down the shore. No matter what season you visit there is something to enjoy at the Eagles Nest.
