Our Story

Chris and Kelsey grew up knowing one another but went their separate ways after high school. They reconnected at age 30 while Chris was practicing Physical Therapy and Kelsey was in real estate. Their love for good coffee, amazing food, travel, wilderness exploration and of course friends, family and animals brought them together and they began to get excited about making their dreams come true. Kelsey's very first home renovation was in Austin,  TX in 2013 and from then on, she was hooked.

Kelsey had adopted her dog Enzo in 2013 in Austin, TX and then they adopted their second 100lb dog, Vuk together in 2018. Their third pup, Otter entered their pack in February 2024 during their Florida home renovation. They passed an adoption event and just couldn't say no.

Combining their decade-long expertise in home renovation and hospitality, ventured into creating nature-immersed getaways that foster both mental and physical rejuvenation. They are fully hands on and most of their accommodations are dog friendly so you don't have to leave your best friend behind on your adventures outdoors. The spaces they create are inspired from their personal travels and are filled with some of the most unique and thoughtful, unexpected touches. You truly feel warm, welcomed and at home in all of their properties.

Their journey began in 2018 with a bold move North in their 30ft Georgie Boy Swinger 1990s motorhome which led them to finding and purchasing the land which eventually became Cuyuna Cove. They worked on remodeling a 1920s mining home right in Crosby while building Cuyuna Cove themselves from the ground up. After 2 years of non stop work, they opened their custom cabins on stilts at Cuyuna Cove to guests in 2020 during the midst of the pandemic. Cuyuna Cove is a commercial property in Crosby, MN with a sauna, 5 year round cabins and new seasonal Bungalow glamping cabins which opened in Spring 2024. They have hosted thousands of guests at Cuyuna Cove and are passionate about being creating the most unique and memorable guest experience.

Their love for the North Shore led them to finding the perfect 17 picturesque acres in Tofte, MN overlooking mighty Lake Superior and just 5 minutes to Lutsen, MN. Their location is perfectly located to hike Oberg Mountain,  Superior National forest, mountain biking, paved trail biking/walking, skiing at Lustsen Mountain, day trips to Grand Marais, the Boundary Waters, Gun Flint trail and so much more!  Committing to intricate design details, they lived in a tent while envisioning their custom Tofte Trails cabins. They cleared the land themselves and designed every aspect of the property and the cabins. With gorgeous custom glass, one of a kind reclaimed barn wood and stunning modern amenities throughout, you cannot find another upscale cabin experience like Tofte Trails anywhere. It truly is a getaway for the soul, mind &  body.

In 2023, as they finished up the new Bungalows at Cuyuna  Cove they they made the decision to purchase a charming 1930s beach home with a massive 1/3 acre tropical, fenced in yard and pool in St. Petersburg, Fl. The home is nestled off a red brick road and is walking distance to the beach and the historic Waterfront District of Gulfport, Fl.  They spent months remodeling the home &  guest house themselves and opened the home to guests via Airbnb Spring 2024.  

Passionate outdoors enthusiasts who cherish connections, both with nature and guests, they continually seek inspiration from their travels, always eager to bring unique experiences to their cabins, all while enjoying great food and coffee and inspiring designs on all of their adventures.

“We loved our winter getaway at Cuyuna Cove. Our cabin was super cozy and had lots of amenities for such a small space! It was great being able to bring our dog along on the trip too. We loved the sauna for warming up after an afternoon exploring the nearby bike trails. Definitely need to make a return trip!

“We had an incredible time staying at Cuyuna Cove. The tiny cabin was stocked with all you could need and it allowed for a nice quiet getaway. If you go in the winter and like to cross country ski there are a lot of fun trails right around the cabins. Thank you for making our trip to Crosby fun and special!”
