You might say Kristie and Keith Harrison have the best of both worlds. At their primary home, the Minnesota couple can swim, water-ski, even cruise the small lake they live on by Amphicar. But when the Harrisons head to their cabin on Lake Superior, their watercraft stay in dry dock.

Why? Because the cabin is “all about the forest,” says Kristie. “There’s so many trails right out our door.” Whenever possible, grown daughters Kali and Kassie join in the fun, making it a family affair. “We love it there in winter just as much as summer. It’s wonderful to go hiking or snowshoeing on a path where the only footprints are made by animals,” says Kristie.
