Close to Lake Superior, Superior Hiking Trail, BWCAW, Waterfalls, Grand Marais, MN (America's Coolest Small Town). We are entirely off grid and located in the remote north woods of MN's Arrowhead Region. It is a peaceful lifestyle living and working with traditional sled dogs. Folks can immerse themselves in our lifestyle or passively enjoy it year 'round as they use this space as a base for outdoor adventures. Our dogs rule the roost so, sadly, we can not allow your pets.

El lugar

One of the most unique lodging options you will find along Lake Superior's North Shore or near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Superior Hiking Trail! Our Guest Suite has rustic hickory floors and kitchen cabinetry, knotty pine ceilings, half log interior side walls and Lake Superior stone back splash. It doesn't get any more rustic north woods/north shore than this! This is a bright space filled with natural light from a large patio door window and three skylights.


The Points Unknown Guest Suite allows you to participate fully in our lifestyle with traditional sled dogs in our modern and comfy off-grid haven in the north woods of Minnesota's Arrowhead Region. Join us for a dog sledding experience by day. Gaze at our ever-changing sky by night, right out your window. You might even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights dancing overhead! Then, let the tranquil howls of the sled dogs enchant and sing you to sleep. When you're ready for adventure, you'll find our accommodations a warm and welcoming place to start your day.

WINTER
Do I have to come for a dog sledding experience to stay at the Points Unknown Guest Suite in the winter? Not at all, but we sure hope you take advantage of the opportunity! Our beautiful Sled Pets are waiting to welcome you too! Ask about our Bed & Sled packages!


SPRING, SUMMER, FALL
During the “off season”, the Points Unknown Guest Suite becomes a comfortable overnight stop as we welcome into our home, adventurers making their way on the Superior Hiking Trail or paddlers exploring the BWCAW (Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness). Families and small groups are always welcome to stay with us as a home base for their nearby sights exploration.

What does "off-grid" look like at Points Unknown?
The Points Unknown Guest Suite is located within our off-grid homestead, in Minnesota’s remote north woods, 35 minutes northeast of Grand Marais. We are located 7 miles from the conventional grid. Our energy comes from 16 solar panels mounted on the roof of our homestead. We have 24 batteries in which this solar energy is stored. On cloudy days, we have a propane generator that produces the energy used and stored. Propane, having a by-product of water, lessens our carbon footprint. We ask that our guests help us conserve our energy wherever possible.

There are no phone lines in our area, however we do receive a boosted cell phone signal from Canada. If AT&T is your carrier, you will enjoy the ability to make phone calls freely as we do, with no International charges, however an extra fee is charged for International data through AT&T, if it can be received at our location. Our phone is available for emergencies only.

We require limited satellite internet service to run our businesses and it is not available to guests. Unplug, relax and enjoy your time in the wilderness!

Our delicious drinking water comes from our own well.

Our heat is in floor and is fed by an outdoor wood boiler.

We have indoor plumbing!

We ask that our guests help to conserve our precious resources by limiting the length and number of showers whenever possible.

Other things you need to know

Check in time: 4PM
Check out time: 10AM

Kitchen is fully stocked with eating utensils, plates and cookware. A French press for coffee brewing is available. Please limit microwave usage to sunny days.

We LOVE pets and animals in general, but because we have 35 Sled Pets that include 5 full-time house dogs, you will need to leave your pets at home.

Disponible para huéspedes

In addition to the rented suite, guests are welcome to use the front porch overlooking the fenced dog play areas and the woods. It has a wood stove for ambiance and warmth on cold winter days and to take the chill off on spring and fall evenings. The bathroom is shared with us and it is on the main floor. Think about booking a dog sledding or wheeled rig adventure during your fall or winter stay! As part of your nightly fee, which includes tax, you will be invited out to meet the sled dogs at a time set during your check in and be invited to receive a tour of our beeswax candle crafting workshop.

Children
• Our guest suite may not be suitable for some children under the age of 12 due to the multiple safety requirements associated with a kennel of sled dogs and the desire for general peace and quiet in our home.
• Children must be attended by an adult at all times and not left to wander the common areas or property alone.


You will pass through unfinished areas of our home to get to your perfectly finished and cozy accommodations with vast views of the woods out the patio door window and the big sky out of one of the three roof windows. Having unfinished space in your home is typical for our area so you'll be able to experience the local norm.

The shared bathroom on the main floor and your suite on the second floor are kept clean and tidy for our guests at all times. It is extremely unlikely, however, that the main part of our home which includes the porch, entry way, our private living quarters and the beeswax candle workshop will be free of dog hair, dirt and dust and some seasons are better than others. We really do "live" here along with our 33 sled pets, after all. You will get to see true life with Points Unknown and heck, we may surprise you and there won't be any dog hair, dust and dirt. But then again, I would wonder if you were in the right place.

Atención a los huéspedes

The Points Unknown Guest Suite allows you to participate fully in our lifestyle with traditional sled dogs in our modern and comfy off-grid haven in the north woods of Minnesota's Arrowhead Region. At the same time, we live here and do so because we love the peace and quiet of the north woods and do need ample time alone to recharge.

Upon arrival, if you wish, let’s schedule some times that you can participate in our lifestyle that could include sled dog feeding and chores and, a beeswax candle workshop tour, among other things. We’d also like to chat with you about other activities and sights that might be available to you at the time of year you are visiting.

Since we have a busy schedule with the sled dogs that includes long hours outside and because we also work from the homestead, crafting pure beeswax candles, we are almost always at home but not always immediately available for casual conversation. If there is a need, we can be tracked down on the property and we're happy to help in anyway we can.

Please be aware that there is no cell coverage at our location unless you have AT&T service. For emergencies, you are welcome to use our cell phone that receives a boosted signal from Canada.

Since we live remotely, help could be over an hour away. Please consider this and take the necessary precautions.

We loved this cozy, out of the way spot for exploring the grand portage area, and unplugging from our hectic lives. Linda and her pack of sled pets and humans made our stay very comfortable—we especially appreciated the well-equipped kitchen, the helpful tips for the area, and the attention to our safety as we were traveling unplowed back roads. If you're lucky enough to arrive during a snowstorm, expect some jaw dropping nature! And, of course, some howling pups to greet you.

Points Unknown was the perfect place for a weekend getaway to unwind and recharge. The dogs were great, and the space was perfect. Linda was more than welcoming and accommodating for us. 10/10 would stay again.

Linda's place is wpnderful, beautifully appointed and easy to find with her directions... the dogs are very quiet no barking at all...and only howled (URL HIDDEN) really added to the up north experience, sounded similar to the wolves up there.... we loved it! Linda is warm and welcoming and eager to share about their dogs, the bee products etc ! The only thing of note is that the bathroom is down stairs, so at night one needs to plan for that. The space is beautiful and very cozy. thank you!

LOVE If you're looking to unplug, this is the place for you. Quiet, relaxing, and cozy. There is loads of exploring to do on the North Shore. Linda provided tons of great hiking and sight seeing tips! It was wonderful to hike and play all day then come "home" to peace, quiet, and amazing puppers! The dogs do howl at night, which I loved, but I could see where some people may not. You do have to bring your own groceries. No food on site. But the kitchen space is really nice! Linda's candle shop is directory below the suite. We will definitely be back for a mushing lesson!!!

Linda's place was very cozy and cabin-like. It was a quiet and secluded place and it was nice to be completely off the grid for a while. Our favorite part of the trip with the Mindful Paddling canoe trip in the boundary waters with Mary Ellen. If you have the opportunity to do this, it is definitely worth the money spent for a priceless adventure.

Points Unknown is the place to be. My partner and I enjoyed our time in Northern Minnesota, with the intent to get off the grid and enjoy a technology free trip. We were able the enjoy the comfort of Linda's place, and thoroughly enjoyed her activity suggestions. Linda let us do our own thing, but also took time to introduce us to the sled dogs, as well as her candle business. I appreciate Linda's willingness to provide us with the only-locally-known attractions (hikes and viewpoints specifically). Our stay at Points Unknown was comfortable and enjoyable. The space had everything we could want, and more! I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay in Northern Minnesota!

What a lovely home to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Linda, Neil, and their dogs greeted us from the moment we stepped into their home. It was super cozy and the dogs are all super friendly. I miss them already! It was such a lovely experience to see and take part in their off the grid lifestyle. Linda was always very quick to respond and provide helpful tips for the area. One thing I do recommend is picking up groceries to cook as the nearest town (Grand Marais) where you can grab a bite is about 40 minutes away. Many of the restaurants were closed for the season when we were there. There is a Whole Foods Co-op to pick up organic produce in town. We ended up cooking during most of the weekend. I definitely recommend Points Unknown for an unforgettable experience!

I live a home spun lifestyle, off grid with traditional sled dogs, in the remote north woods of Minnesota's Arrowhead Region. We also hand craft pure beeswax candles right onsite using power from the sun! What we're doing here has been a vision for quite some time. I enjoy the peace and serenity of living where and how I do and want to share that experience with others.
