The Grand Marais Getaway has been a vacation rental for over 10 years, and is licensed with the State of Minnesota. It is a bright and spacious home just blocks from beautiful Lake Superior, in the "coolest small town in America", Grand Marais, MN.

The house sleeps 6-8 people in its three bedroom (2 queens, 1 double, and a convertible sofa that is another queen bed. There are 2 bathrooms, 1 with a tub/shower, and the other has a shower stall.

Easy to walk to the lake or downtown. Nice space for our family of 4. All appliances and supplies worked great for a night in. A great value I would stay again.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Once again, Matt & Nancy had the Getaway,in too top shape, ready for our stay! The house is very neat and clean, and it has all the amenities you need. Great features include the walking distance to the harbor, on-site washer/dryer, clean and comfortable. The new electric fireplace/heater is a nice addition, too! This was our second stay at GM Getaway, and we can't wait to go back again! Thanks for such a pleasant stay!
