Description

 

Welcome to Kuehnel's Nordic Retreat! The owners were drawn to the property because of the quiet and the constant view of Lake Superior. They began their overnights in a tent on the island in 1983 and started construction on their home in 1984 after a large storm downed many trees. The road was the first priority, so the owners physically removed 110 trees on their own and started with an initial main house and a porch.

In 2010-11 an addition was built which provided the loft, a shop and a main bedroom. Since they have visited Norway several times you will find wall hangings, pictures and other items to make the house look like their relatives’ homes in Norway. All of the teak furniture was purchased at International Design in Minneapolis. The two large chairs in the living room arrived from Oslo on a very slow boat. Gifts from family and friends over the years have been added; the large wall hanging in the living room was created from their instructions to a St. Paul artisan. The large quilt in the loft was made by the family’s oldest daughter.

Their interest in creating more memories from their Norwegian trips led them to also build the hytte (pronounced HIT-a) featuring a Nordic sleigh bed. Many Norwegians have these summer houses, often on the tops of mountains or across a small lake. They don’t necessarily include electricity, but they’re always quiet places with many books. The building with grass on the roof is called a stabbur (stahb-yer); Norwegians (and the Kuehnels) use it as a storage shed.
