Sawtooth Mountains

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016

The Sawtooth Mountain Range stretches from the west side of Tofte to the east side of Grand Marais. It is made up of a number peaks, with the highest one reaching 900 feet over Lake Superior. While these peaks don’t rival other mountain ranges in height, the Sawtooth Mountain Range has a noteworthy silhouette. Looking at it from a distance, the peaks resemble the teeth of a saw with their uniform size, height and angles (hence the name Sawtooth Mountains).

The range was created by a combination of volcanic activity and erosion over the past billion years. Peaks include Carlton Peak, Leveaux Mountain, Oberg Mountain, Moose Mountain, Eagle Mountain, Murphy Mountain and Sawtooth Bluff.

New Look to Opel 1 Cabin on Lake Superior

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

We are excited to announce some fun changes to Opel 1 Cabin on Lake Superior! The main lakeside bedroom has now been converted into a living room/sitting area. The new living area has a Click-It Couch which can be converted to a sleeping couch for 1 person and a new trendy Ikea lounge chair. If guests are looking to relax a bit they can either watch the waves of Lake Superior, the flat screen television, or the electric fireplace from this new room! The second bedroom and kitchen remain the same with the usual Opel cabin charm. Cascade Vacation Rentals, along with the owners of Opel’s Lakeside Cabins, are happy to provide this change to our rental guests. We hope you like it too!

Opel 1 Cabin is one of four Opel Cabins on the Croftville Road.  They were once a Mom & Pop resort when the Croftville Road was the main highway. They have all been remodeled and are as cute as can be. They share a common pebble and cobblestone beach, great for agate hunting, daydreaming, or building a fire in the evening and watching the moonrise and, on occasion, the Northern Lights.  Croftville Road, which is about 50 feet from the lake, intersects the cabin group.  Cabin #1 is built between the Croftville road and the lake shore and the other 3 are above the road, still only about 100 feet average from the shore. These cabins are open May 15 – October 25.
