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!

Great place to stay for a Grand Marais Visit

  • 5 of 5

If you want a quiet, scenic and peaceful place to stay that provides all the amenities that one could want, this is the place to stay. Charlie and Pam were easy to communicate with and were flexible with some last minute scheduling adjustments. The condo is very nice, clean and very cozy. We had the luck of being able to sit out on the patio and see 3 nights of a near full moon that glistened across the lake as well as the ability to watch the Perseid meteors streak across the sky. The condo is a short drive south of town which keeps you away from the numerous other tourists if you seek peace & quiet. Great place to stay and we will definitely book again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind and generous review Dustin! We're thrilled to hear that you had such a wonderful stay! We have to admit that we're just a little bit jealous that you were able to sit outside for three nights in a row to view the full moon over Lake Superior AND see the meteor shower! Lucky you! That's magic! We hope you'll be back to stay with us again the next time you travel to the North Shore. Kind regards, Pam & Charlie

Neat, clean, great location, beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

Property was very well kept and very clean, space was adequate and features like the sauna and fireplace very nice. Only complaint is re bed and furniture neither being comfortable compared to what we normally experience in lodging of this price point per night. Overall experience was very good and we had a really nice anniversary weekend!

Owner's Response: Hi Kurt, Thank you for your review. We're glad to hear you enjoyed our wonderful views of Lake Superior, but we're surprised to hear that you didn't find the furniture comfortable. We believe that out of our almost 70 reviews, you're the first to feel that way. All of our furniture in the condo is from Room & Board and very high-end. We purchased the leather, swivel chairs so that you could both turn towards the beautiful view of Lake Superior or towards the fireplace and TV. We find our furnishings very comfortable and functional, but perhaps you prefer recliners or larger, stuffed furniture more than modern styles - either way we hope you'll return to Terrace Point. Be well, Pam & Charlie

Great place to stay on the north shore!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. Just 4 miles south of Grand Marias. The view of Lake Superior was beautiful and visible inside and outside the condo. Comfortable furniture. Everything supplied for your stay. Very clean!

Owner's Response: Thank you Teresa! Terrace Point is a perfect location... close enough to Grand Marais to be there in just 5 minutes, but yet it seems a life time away when you return to the quiet of the lake and the wonderful views. Please come stay with us again when you hear the call of the North Shore. Kind regards, Pam & Charlie

Favorite place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my daughter and I have stayed at this beautiful condo. The area is nice and fun to explore but we really just enjoy relaxing at the condo, turning on the fireplace and listening to the waves. Everything is top notch and well cared for, including a super comfortable bed and pillows. All the amenities you could need for a get away.
