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.

Just about perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for the last two years and have already booked for next summer. The location is great, and the owner has thought of everything a guest might need. The ping pong table is a lot of fun for all ages.
