About Marcia Lacey

Ken retired from Northwest Airlines and we decided to build our house on property that has been in the family since 1963. And yes we built it ourselves! We love the outdoors and especially love living on Lake Superior. We love hunting, fishing, hiking, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. I have trained dogs all my life and have one Golden Retreiver. Charlie is a 6 year old white golden. He loves all the people who stay in the Cabin. We have made many lasting friends. This is the only cottage on our property. We love to share our little 'piece of heaven'

Marcia Lacey purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Marcia Lacey chose Hovland

When we retired up north, We wanted something to do, so we brought in a little 14 by 16 cottage to rent. We have so much fun meeting all the people who visit. When we built our home here in Hovland, we decided we had enough room to share our 'little piece of heaven'. It is a safe place for the dogs to run and have fun and not worry about busy roads. Providing a vacation rental on Lake Superior is like having a place on a small ocean.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is private. It is just like having your own cozy cottage on Lake Superior. Lake Superior is different everyday. The Flute Reed River is a great river to hike or just cool off. The cottage is private but close enough to get map information or a spice you are missing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Nelsons' from Good Thunder plus Samantha & Reggy, our Golden Retrievers, arrived on Monday to very foggy and cool conditions. However, the next few days were amazing. One morning we traveled to Grand Portage State Park and the Falls were amazing as was the double rainbow surrounding them. The cabin again so cozy and our dogs, plus Charlie & Rusty spent lots of time in the water. We are back in the middle of July so rest up Charlie because Reggy will try" to run you ragged!

Everything we needed for a relaxing weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a couple or family with little ones; Lake Superior just steps away, plenty of room for the dog to roam. So very peaceful on the little beach, and Grand Marais just down the road. The host is super organized, helpful, and discreet. We loved this place and will be back.

Cozy cabin on a gorgeous property

  • 5 of 5

This tiny cabin was in an absolutely gorgeous wooded location, right where the Flute Reed River meets Lake Superior. It was only fifty feet to the lakeshore where we spent a lot of time quietly listening to the waves crash against the rocky beach. We also had a fire right by the lake. The cabin itself is small but had everything necessary for our family of four—comfortable beds, a grill, an electric skillet, etc. There was also information in the cabin about the Duluth carpenters-turned-fisherman who settled the spot in the 1800s. Reading about their fishing, hunting, and sailing experiences really added some atmosphere to the stay. The location was also perfect for short drives up to Grand Marais and Grand Portage. This was a fabulous stay!

I had a wonderful time here! I loved hearing the waves crashing on the shore and watching the chickadees eat from the bird feeders. Thank you for everything Marcia! This was just what I needed for a relaxing weekend!
