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.

The hottest VRBO choice in Grand Marais!

  • 5 of 5

The Grand Marais Getaway is a spacious 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom house located close to all restaurants and shopping. You can walk just about everywhere. Also, there is a large living area in a lower level with a pull out sofa, a pingpong table, books and games. The owners are friendly and accommodating. My sister and I have rented for the past 5 years and have been completely satisfied with this place. Always neat, clean and inviting. No doubt, everyone will enjoy staying here.

The house is such a good set up.

Ideal and I mean ideal location. You can walk to everything in town and still have a view of the lake.

We plan to come back every year!

A wonderful time at Grand Marais Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I have stayed at Grand Marais Getaway for two years for our fall trip to the North Shore to enjoy hiking and the fall colors. Again, we had a wonderful trip and very much enjoy staying here. The accommodations are great, comfortable, clean, well appointed, and close to everything. It is an open, light and airy place with many windows and everything we want in a kitchen. We eat out some but enjoy being able to relax and cook simple meals after a day out hiking. Fluffy towels, lots of room and space. Matt and Nancy, the owners, are so nice, and very responsive although we had no issues, just a couple of minor questions. We will be back!

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our multi-generational group. Everyone could enjoy some privacy but the shared family spaces were comfortable, thoughtfully furnished and spacious as well. The ping pong table was fun for all. The wifi worked well - appreciated by our teens.

Everything was super clean and comfortable.

The kitchen was very well equipped, although we confess that we did not cook very much and enjoyed being walking distance to many great restaurants.

The house was peaceful but in a few minutes we could walk to the lake, shops, restaurants and the bustle of downtown Grand Marais.

This trip we enjoyed the house as a base for hiking and exploring the shore but we would love to return in different seasons.

The owners replied promptly to any questions we had about booking and were very pleasant to deal with.
