Easy walking distance to town. The house is large and airy. Though it is close to town it has a nice private feel to it. Very comfortable.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place, wonderful location in Grand Marais, very well equipped and comfortable. We cooked in several times and were amazed at the variety of kitchen tools. It handled 4 adults with plenty of space, and can handle many more plus children and pets. If we return to area, we would definitely stay again.

Home away from home

Nice place, great location. Owners are very accommodating and pay attention to all the details to ensure this is a very comfortable home away from home experience, which it was. We recommend it and look forward to a return visit soon.
