At the end of Bark Point lies your perfect vacation home!
At the end of Bark Point lies the start to your amazing vacation on Lake Superior’s South Shore! This custom-built log home is the perfect home base for an unforgettable escape to the South Shore. The property features incredible views of the lake, multiple spaces for your group to gather & relax, a gourmet kitchen, screen porch (and deck) facing the lake, and more - all on a nearly three acre parcel set far off the road, giving you privacy & serenity.
Your host runs Bark Point Ventures, a vacation rental management & concierge company that specializes in properties on Lake Superior's South Shore. She lives nearby and is available 24/7 to assist her guests. Our passion is ensuring guests experience the magic of what we feel is one of the most amazing places in the world.
The South Shore
The south shore is truly a place to get away from it all, but not so far from modern conveniences that getting food and gas feel like a chore. The guest book contains tips on all the incredible outdoor activities, local arts, and places to get groceries, dine out, grab a drink, etc. This is truly a year-round destination, whether you enjoy outdoor activities, local cuisine, art, or simply the company of friends & family in one of the most beautiful locations in the northern U.S.
The home is just a few minutes from the center of Cornucopia, which has a delightful general store/market, awesome coffee shop, bar/restaurant, and marina. Bayfield is about 35 minutes away, as is Washburn (where the largest grocery store is in the area). Ashland is about 45 minutes away (which has a natural foods co-op, Wal-Mart, and wider range of shops). Superior & Duluth are an hour and a bit away.
The interior of the home is anchored by the great room that has soaring two-story ceilings, wood fireplace, ample comfy seating, and our favorite feature: Teddy, the bison. The great room flows right into the open-plan kitchen & dining room. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with gas stove, huge kitchen island (with its own prep sink), tons of counter & cabinet space, and all the equipment you need to feed the whole gang.
Right off the great room & dining area is the deck & screen porch which face the lake, giving you incredible views of the ever-changing waters.
The downstairs is rounded out by the main bedroom with en suite bath & a private set of doors out to the screen porch & an office.
Upstairs you’ll find two more bedrooms which share a Jack & Jill bathroom as well as amazing lake views. Our favorite spot in the house is the upstairs lounge - it has two seating areas, game table, and a treadmill (for those of you wanting to stay indoors in the winter yet still get your cardio done).
Bark Point Lodge is the perfect spot for a romantic get-away or an extended family gathering. The entire home is furnished with your comfort & convenience in mind: cozy throws, over-stuffed throw pillows, comfy furniture in every room, fully-stocked kitchen, and even a beverage cart on the screen porch! We want you to immediately forget about the realities of day-to-day life the minute you drive onto the property and enjoy the comfort, beauty, and peace this very special property has to offer.
The exterior of the home features a spacious yard for outdoor games, lounging, or just sitting on the deck and enjoying a favorite beverage while enjoying the amazing views and lake breezes. And if you’re lucky, you’ll have a visit paid by the eagles who live nearby!
Due to the lack of public transportation and the distance between towns/amenities, a car is pretty much essential. But, on the plus side, traffic is not a concept we have up here!
