“Sweet spot on Caribou Lake”
Reviewed 22 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We rented this cabin home just after peak color on the North Shore. Still so much beauty, and near to the Superior hiking trail and Grand Marais.
Six of us were comfortable here with 3 bedrooms and two baths.
It was chilly and rainy, so we used the fireplace and cooked and started and finished a 1000 piece puzzle.
All the amenities of home, plus some! We will definitely come back to Casabella

“Best friend & I needed a time out.”
Reviewed 10 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My best friend & I both needed a time to refresh...get back to nature & spend quality time together. This was the absolute best place to do it, sitting on the dock doing yoga meditation in the mist, taking a long bath in the hot tub upstairs, cuddling with our two dogs while sipping wine in front of the fireplace & letting it all hang out.

We are so happy that you have enjoyed both of your stays. We honestly love the thought of other families enjoying Casabella. (It just doesn't seem right to leave it empty!)

“Casabella was the perfect place for a multi-age family gathering.”

person found this review helpful

The setting was not only beautiful, but the lake offered a variety of activities including fishing and kayaking. We loved the firepit by the lake! The home was comfortable and roomy enough for private sleeping quarters. The views from the great room and master bedroom were fantastic. The kitchen provided everything we needed. So much so, that we ate all of our meals at Casabella. The loft offered a seperate area for movie watching - a hit with our grandson. The location was perfect for visiting the various state parks along Lake Superior. We are already talking about a future family gathering at Casabella. We all left wishing we had a lttle more time to enjoy everything Casabella had to offer.

“Reconnected with our Minnesota roots!"”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our stay fully met our (very high) best hopes. The home is spacious in all the right ways, very functional, and well-appointed with everything we needed. And we appreciate the free satellite TV and internet, and, of course, it was an idyllic setting.

An unexpected highlight has been the quietly attentive care that Gator (a local handyman who watches over the house) has provided. He is a character, to be sure. But he is also wise, gracious, and helpful. And with his local insights, we are now catching fish! We are very glad about that!

We had not been back to Northern Minnesota in 30 years! This was a wonderful renewal of our love for Northern Minnesota. And Cindy and Havey (the owners), and Gator, made the trip easy and everything we could have hoped for.

It was PERFECT!

“Great time at Casabella”

We had a wonderful time at Casabella in Lutsen. There were six of us, and we enjoyed walking on the frozen lake, and snowshoeing on the trails - many thanks to Mike who gave us some ideas of where to go.

Casabella itself is a lovely lake home - very comfortable and plenty of space for all six of us.

Thank you to Cindy and Harvey. We will definitely be back!

“A LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN”

Have stayed at Casabella every year...with friends and family. It is easy access for older people and is so well appointed that you have all the creature comforts of home (& then some), plus the serenity of the pristine Caribou Lake..& are right in the middle of the Superior Nat'l Forest. This is much more than a cabin...it's a year-around home..with a huge whirlpool tub on the upper level...you can watch the moon & stars while enjoying the whirlpool. Every room has a gorgeous view...wild flowers in summer with the lake & pontoon to enjoy a little fishing. Bring your family/friends down to the campfire pit in the evening for song singing..or roasting marshmellows..whatever please you. You are so close to a variety of hiking trails..one for every ability. Downhill skiing or cross country is practically out your door. When you tire of cooking your own meals, you can choose from some of the best restaurants in Minnesota...just a few miles away. I have taken so many people here in the past ten years and every one, to a person, said it made special memories for a lifetime.
