About this listing
Our house is full log construction, built in the 1880s, but has all the modern amenities like electric fireplace, satellite TV, carefully maintained gardens, and open wifi network. Whether you're here for fishing, canoeing, snowmobiling, just the quiet of the northwoods, we know you'll enjoy your stay.
Private access to the state snowmobile/ATV route directly from property. Park your trailer for the weekend and ride directly from the yard.
Our house is full log construction, built in the 1880s by the hard-working Finish settlers of the area and is part of an old dairy farm. The property no longer has cows, but was transformed into a wedding and event center in 2013 for our daughter's wedding. Our home has attracted so much admiration over the years that we've now decided to open it to renters.
Don't be fooled by the cozy cabin interior! Though you can see the solid logs of the house in the walls and there are stone-encased chimneys, our home has all the modern amenities. We provide a full kitchen stocked with all the utensils you need, an electric fireplace, multiple satellite TVs (with Netflix and BluRay player), carefully maintained gardens, and open wifi network covering the grounds.
Even though Brule is a town of 600, there's no shortage of things to do. Whether you're drinking coffee on the porch, kayaking the Brule, or shopping in Canal Park, you will never be bored.
The Bois Brule ("Burning Wood") River is the best-known river in the Lake Superior watershed. This river is famed especially for its trout fishing, revered for its prolific mayfly and stone fly hatches.
The lower river (near Brule, WI) falls 328 feet over 18 miles through the rocky Copper Range region. Here, flashing cascades tumble over rocks and ledges and between steep river bluffs forested with aspen and balsam fir. This makes the Brule especially good for canoeing and kayaking, with a number of available runs that vary from short and flat to longer and more adventurous.
Duluth is only 40 minutes from this quiet getaway, and boasts many local shops with unique offerings, as well as a thriving arts and entertainment culture. There are also many top-notch eateries in Duluth. Enjoy Duluth during the day, and relax at the house at night.
Other things to note

We're only 3 miles from the state ATV and snowmobiling trail and about 12 miles from the mouth of the Brule River, so our location is great to park your snowmobile, ATV, or boat right in the yard.
