About the Space

This whimsical a-frame cabin has an off-grid feel as you drive up the 1/3 windy driveway and sit atop a bluff surrounded by 40 private acres of woods—yet it’s located right in the heart of the North Shore. It’s just a 5-minute drive to grab ice cream or coffee and conveniently close to many state parks and tourist destinations. The cabin offers many amenities, including wifi, full-kitchen access, in-unit laundry, dedicated workspaces, free parking and more.

It’s a really special place!”

-Tessa Checovich

The Journey of Starting an Airbnb

A passion project during the pandemic turned into owners Todd & Tessa Checovich’s first big leap into real estate investing. “We love a-frames and the North Shore—so when this 1974 a-frame overlooking Lake Superior was listed, we knew we had to have it,” Tessa said. “We closed on the cabin a month after our second daughter was born and spent my maternity leave up there caring for our girls and making the cabin our own with decor, furnishings and some cosmetic updates.”

Thankfully, the heavy lifting of the renovation had been completed before the Checovichs bought it; they just put their own spin on it. The biggest change they made was changing the red and brown exterior by painting it a deep, rich green—Foxhall Green by Sherwin Williams to be precise.

The Checovichs opened their doors as Wild Pines Cabin on Airbnb in April 2021. Todd and Tessa run the operation together and their favorite part is hearing guests’ reactions when they arrive as well as the memories they make at the cabin.
