Deep in the Superior National Forest, this industrial farmhouse/ modern industrial lakefront cabin is located in the middle of the Sawtooth Mountains, and further nestled between 2 State Parks. The property is surrounded by the breathtaking views and beauty of the Northwoods. Here, you can hear the wolves howl at night and the loons echo from shore to shore. It is the perfect place to recoup from life's fast pace.

The space

This newly built cabin sits right on the shore of Nine Mile Lake and is situated within a mix of mature boreal hardwoods and towering conifers, deep within the Sawtooth Mountains. It is nestled between 2 State Parks and surrounded by a network of ATV and snowmobile trails. Past the private pond and through a cedar forest is a shoreline providing access to a pristine secluded bay. These clear waters are home for Walleye, Bluegill and Northern Pike, creating an angler's paradise. The dock provides front row tickets to each day's sunset.

Inside, tall picture windows rise to meet cathedral ceilings among an open layout that includes a stone fire place and an upstairs loft. A shell of warm Douglas Fir and Alder wood transform this retreat in a culmination of “rustic farmhouse meets modern industrial". Curl up on a plush pillow-top under flannel or bamboo sheets, and a thick down comforter. There is a queen sized bed in the loft. This has an attached full bathroom and lounge area with fireplace. Downstairs, you'll find another bedroom with a full sized bed. This bedroom includes a separate entrance to private deck overlooking the lake. Lastly, there is another pull out queen sized bed in the living room that is available for use.

This four season lodge is accommodating to a variety of recreational activities at any time of the year, making it an ideal place for sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts. Seasonally (April-September), there are 2 kayaks and a canoe available for your use. A large extended porch offers the perfect buffer for nature's living room. The porch hammock will rock you to sleep while listening to the wind through the trees. A large fire pit surrounded by Adirondack chairs and rustic lanterns is the perfect place to unwind after a long day and enjoy a traditional s'more. Serenity Lodge is perfect for a family or friendly get-together, romantic getaway, holiday destination, or to celebrate a special occasion. It's a place where both the Northern Lights and fireflies dance… a place where you can unplug from the world and reconnect with nature.

Serenity Lodge is not just another cabin in the woods, but an entire experience. Nature will provided the hypnotizing symphony of crickets and frogs, and you can supplement with the smells of bacon and the laughter of friends. Whether rocking in the hammock, reading a book by the fireplace, playing cards, or watching the sunset… you are guaranteed to find a place to reconnect, relax and recoup from life's fast pace.

Wow what a fantastic place the Serenity Lodge is!! We had a wonderful stay and couldn't have asked for more. Visiting from England we had been in Minneapolis for a long weekend then came up to the lodge and it was the perfect contrast. The setting is amazing, and being right on Nile Mile Lake was the biggest bonus. We loved taking the canoe out and just paddling around. It was so peaceful, there was nobody else around, and coming from London this was a total dream!! The lodge itself is fab, the interior really cool and has every mod-con you could need. Our evenings were spent around the fire-pit, under the stars, the perfect end to a relaxing day. Jitterbug was a great host, she gave us all the details we needed and more and was really easy to communicate with. She made the lodge feel like home from home. Overall and wonderful visit and fantastic experience. Thanks for letting us stay!! :)

I usually don't write reviews, but Jitterbugs place was fantastic! Exactly like the pictures posted. She was great at getting back to me quickly & even left out the canoe extra long so we could take our kids out. The location is off a major road and tucked in gorgeous hilly woods. We heard wolves howling at night (my husband almost hit one with the car). The place was clean with all the amenities we were looking for. The only bummer we had was construction noise. I think someone was clearing trees close by, so it was loud during the day at times, but only for a portion of our stay. I would definitely stay at Jitterbugs place again though!

We spent a beautiful few days of September here with our family of 4. This cabin is in a beautiful location. The lake that it is on is breathtaking. We loved taking the kayaks and canoes out for peaceful sunrises and sunsets. The cabin has everything you would need to be comfortable and cook great meals. We loved making fires and spending time with our family. George Crosby Manitou State park is now a new favorite of ours. We also enjoyed agate searching on Beaver Bay, time in Grand Marais, and hiking through Cascade River State Park.

So I wish I could give more stars for feedback. I have rarely took the time for leaving feedback, but this is an exception. Jitterbug is just awesome to communicate with, one night at like 2:30 am I left her a message expecting her to respond sometime the next day..... She responded in 3 minutes..... At 2:33 (URL HIDDEN) point is, she's amazing, she communicated so well I felt like I had already been there before when I fist pulled in. The cabin is so perfect, I brought my significant other for our anniversary as a surprise and it was so fun to watch her walk though the cabin and the property and just continue to be amazed, made me look pretty good! Do not hesitate to rent this place, I can't think of a single thing about the place or the entire process that I would change to make it any better. If you go, I'll bet you'll come back.....we certainly will !

Serenity Lodge was beautiful. It was very comfortable and cozy and everything you could think of was provided. We would definitely recommend staying there without any reservations. Communication with the host was easy and she provided great guidance for using everything in the house and the surrounding area.
