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 Grand Marais

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!

Great views, cozy, calm, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is a very architecturally interesting property that has a warm and relaxing feeling. The views of the lake are great. The fireplace and sauna add another level of luxury. Less than 10 minute drive into Grand Marais, many close State Parks, trails, etc. There were no provided toiletries (shower soap, shampoo, etc), so be prepared to bring your own. This is probably the only place we've ever stayed with decent kitchen knives. We loved our stay and will definitely come back!

North Shore Cush

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this comfortable, well designed condo with great views of the lake. It is the perfect size for two. It just felt good being there. We agreed that it is the nicest one bedroom place we have rented on the North Shore, bar none. The king bed was very comfortable. The bathroom/sauna area was nicely sized with a nicely appointed shower. Same for the kitchen. Nicely appointed and not crowded. Plus, a nice sized living room/dining room area. Again, the perfect size for a romantic getaway. Plus, the owners are very attentive and easy to work with. We will definitely check out this condo first the next time we come up north.

Great Place on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend here! It ended up being better than we were hoping for. It was clean, quiet and relaxing. After a day out shopping or hiking, we would come back and sit by the fire and enjoy the views of the lake. We would look forward to renting this again in the future!

Owner's Response: Hello Tim, How nice to hear that your stay at Terrace Point exceeded your expectations! Terrace Point is a great place to return to after a day out adventuring. Please come back and stay with us again - each season is different and has it’s own beauty on the North Shore. Kind regards, Pam & Charlie

Well designed retreat on Lake Superior

  • 5 of 5

This little rental is as good as it gets. Well-designed, compact, and perfectly sited. Wake in the morning to sunrise over Lake Superior, have a glass of wine in the evening as the sun sets. Clean, neat, with everything you need (and nothing more - no clutter to work around!).

Pam and Charlie are discreet but always available hosts. Charlie recommended the river walk up frozen Devil's Track River, and it was spectacular.

This is our second visit in two months, that's how good it is.

Owner's Response: Hi Lorrie, It was wonderful to have you back again! We don’t know if people realize how much it means to us when others enjoy and appreciate Terrace Point as much as we do. We think it’s just the perfect spot with the perfect design and we’re sure glad you do too! We’ll be waiting to hear that you’re planning your 3rd trip... :-) Kind regards, Pam & Charlie
