A Room of One's Own
4658 Cascade Beach Road
Lutsen, Minnesota 55612


A Personal Retreat Center on the North Shore of Lake Superior

This cozy cottage is ideal for a one or two-person retreat. Embraced by nature, it is quiet enough to hear the sound of your inner voice. Located just feet from the shore of Lake Superior, A Room of One's Own specializes in hosting personal coaching retreats, and it can also be rented by anyone wanting a refreshing break from the busy-ness of everyday life.

Whether here for personal coaching or self-guided renewal, we can connect you with one or more of the area's many fine body workers, caterers or other services to support your retreat.

Outside the cottage you will find a hot tub, 2 decks, cobblestone beach and seasonal stream. The Cascade Beach Road is a 5-mile gravel road great for hiking, biking and jogging. The Superior Hiking Trail is a short walk from the property and there are miles of other trails for hiking, mountain biking and skiing.

It's just such a beautiful and quiet space to be in. I think that the cottage is perfect in that it is so unplugged. I really enjoyed the space. I would recommend (the retreat) to people like me in professional positions who were thinking about "what's next."
