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.

Feel free to give us a call for more information about Opel 1 Cabin on Lake Superior at 1-218-663-7971!

It’s Almost Lupine Time!

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

lupine north shore minnesotaNorth shore Minnesota lupinesWe get a lot of questions from renters regarding seasonal events: “When will the fall colors be at their peak? When will it snow? When will the blueberries be ripe?” At this time of year, we’re commonly asked, “When will the lupines bloom?”

These brilliant flower spikes color the roadsides and open fields in blue, pink and white during the peak of their bloom. A large swath of lupines is a striking scene and many flower lovers and amateur photographers look forward to capturing the image.

This year it looks like the lupine bloom will be rather late. The budding flowers have just started growing and are only a few inches tall. We guess it will be about two weeks until the peak of the bloom time. While the bloom time varies from year to year, in general the peak is between mid-June and the first week of July.  – Kate
