Another wonderful stay at Grand Marais Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Grand Marais Getaway is great! My sister and I have stayed several times, this was our first winter trip and it was great. Matt and Nancy always have the place at perfection and no problems at all with access and snow removal in winter. It is a comfortable place, very clean, great amenities and location. We will be back.

Clean, Cozy, and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We were up for a weekend of skiing and were very happy with this house. The radiant heated floors were nice and warm after a long day in the cold. The beds were comfortable and everything we needed was easily found.

Great stay on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this house in Grand Marais. The location was great. We enjoyed the pingpong table! Easy walk to the harbor and downtown. Large table for food and games. The owners are very accessible and accommodating. We high recommend this home for a North Shore getaway!

Cozy and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Shared with another couple for the weekend, this was the perfect cabin. We were greeted from the cold by a preheated floor! The cabin was quaint, but had a spacious feel for the 4 of us. The ping pong table was an instant hit. The kitchen table also served as a game table for the majority of the first night. The beds were very comfy! We wished there had been fans, as we realized there is no "moving air" through the cabin. The kitchen was wrll stocked with pots, pans, 9x13 pan, colander, knives, glassware, and silverware. Also available were some seasonings which came in handy. Overall, our stay was exactly what we were looking for. Would definitely return.
