About Charlie & Pam Hile

Hello!

We're Pam and Charlie Hile and we are IN LOVE with Grand Marais and the North Shore! We manage our own property so you're not dealing with a 3rd party or rental company. We personally take care of all communication and are totally invested in your stay at our "home away from home." When you call with any questions or issues, it's one of us that will answer your phone call and make sure that you have what you need.

A little bit about us... we're passionate about family, friends, the outdoors, going on wild adventures and creating meaningful memories. We love to hike, bike, cross country ski, listen to music, enjoy a good cup of coffee in the morning and a great glass of local craft beer at night. We love to watch sunrises, sunsets, the northern lights, rolling waves and wild life. We enjoy people, travel and cultures that are different from our own. We appreciate good conversation with a bit of sarcasm and quick wit thrown in for good measure. We're eager to learn and try new things. We're best friends and we've added the North Shore to the list of things that feed our souls.

Charlie & Pam Hile purchased this condo in 2015

Why Charlie & Pam Hile chose Minnesota

Why this property? Because it's right on the shore of the largest freshwater lake in the entire world and sits just 4 miles from the charming town of Grand Marais. We love the big lake and all of its' mysterious moods! The North Shore provides us with a four season playground to do all the things we love to do! There are endless bike, hiking and ski trails with a waterfall around just about every corner. Every morning we wake up to all the colors of a majestic sunrise over the lake without even having to leave our cozy bed. And... besides all of the state parks, forests and wildlife... there's the wonderful, "Coolest Small Town in America" (voted on by the public and named by the NY Times) town of Grand Marais. Grand Marais is a friendly, quaint (yet modern) fishing village that hosts great restaurants, a new brew pub, endless venues for awesome music, a coop grocery store, the North House Folk School (where you can learn just about any skill or craft imaginable or gather as a community to dance, bake bread or sing around a campfire), a diverse art scene and all of this sits right on the shore of Lake Superior. There's a beautiful public beach for lake gazing or rock skipping with the light house on "Artist's Point" twinkling in the background.

What makes this condo unique

We chose our condo on the shore of Lake Superior first and foremost because of the stunning, panoramic views of Lake Superior! With over 26' of floor to ceiling windows, you have a view of the big lake from the living room, dining area, kitchen and bedroom. The private patio is perfect for coffee in the morning, a good book and lunch in the afternoon, and your beverage of choice at sun set. Terrace Point is a small and quiet community. The design of our condo was influenced by the works of Frank Lloyd Wright who was famous for bringing the outdoors inside and our condo does just that. Designed in a 5 sided pentagon, the Lake Superior ledge rock fireplace is the center point of the living room and dining area. The kitchen boasts of granite counter tops and beautiful cherrywood cabinets. The bedroom has a comfortable king-sized bed where you can take in the sun rise upon waking in the morning or view the moon shimmering on the lake at night right outside your window . The large bathroom has a slate, jet-powered shower with room for 2 and a large, cedar sauna to relax in. The heated floors (carpet and stone) keep you cozy no matter what the season. Terrace Point 11B is the perfect place to set down your bags and enjoy Lake Superior out your front door and all of Cooke County, the Boundary Waters and the Gunflint Trail right outside your back door.

* INVITE FAMILY OR FRIENDS to share the North Shore experience with you and rent our 2nd condo, Terrace Point 15B in addition. Terrace Point 15B is also an end unit and offers the same stunning, panoramic view and sits right on the shoreline of Lake Superior!

Perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

For us, on our second visit to the North Shore, these were the perfect accommodations at the perfect location--right on the lake, close to Grand Marais and state parks--at the perfect time of year, early fall. To be sure, visitors can find quality lodging on the North Shore for less. For us, paying a bit more for the location, the view and the accommodations offered here was worth it. This is an ideal retreat for a retired but active couple, from extras such as the sauna, fireplace and patio to little touches in the décor and furnishings. The influence of Frank Lloyd Wright in the design is evident throughout as it blends with the surroundings. The layout is compact, lending a comfy, cozy feel that at the same time was plenty spacious for us. We came to the North Shore to explore some of the many state parks and other attractions in the area. But when we found Terrace Point, we built in extra time just to stay in, relax and enjoy the view and the accommodations. The sunrise over the lake in the morning and the star-filled sky on a clear night from the patio or windows are amazing! For those needing to maintain contact with the outside world, cell phone reception from this unit was excellent even though it's spotty or nonexistent at many locations along the North Shore due to the terrain. The owners are wonderful hosts and attentive to every detail. Our stay at Terrace Point was a treat. We'll be back.

Owner's Response: Doug - thank you for the glowing review! We are thrilled that you found Terrace Point an amazing place. It's all the reasons you listed that made us fall in love with our condo on the North Shore... first and foremost the expansive views of Lake Superior, second of all the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright that was done so well in the design of the unit, the ledge rock fireplace, the large sauna, the private patio just feet from the water, the list goes on and on. For being a small, cozy space it gives a big return of joy and contentment! Thank you for appreciating all that Terrace Point is! Please come back and enjoy again, we'd love to have you. Pam & Charlie

Beautiful views and comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place overlooking Lake Superior and within 6 miles of Grand Marais on the North Shore. Great views of the lake from every room, everything you would need for a short or long stay. Extremely comfortable bed, great kitchen, bathroom, patio etc. Everything went very smooth and the owners were most helpful-but we really had no problems. We visited and hiked Cascade State Park, Grand Portage State Park, Grand Portage National Monument and rode the Gondola at Lutsen. Wonderful time - highest recommendation.

Awesome and relaxing!

We loved your place. It was more than what we expected. Very comfortable and relaxing. We will be back again. Our favorite was our hike up Eagle Mountain and then coming back to condo for a home cooked dinner. Thank you for sharing your place. It's beautiful!
