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 deeply 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!

Beautiful views, cozy interior
Great place for a weekend getaway. Cozy interior with fireplace and sauna. Great views of the lake. Short drive to Grand Marais and many hiking, biking, skiing, and snowshoeing trails. We keep coming back!
Beautiful place for a get-away
We were cozy and warm during a nasty fall storm in the condo. The fireplace and sauna were needed and lovely. The condo is well appointed, furniture and bed was comfortable, kitchen has all the appliances and pots and pans needed, dishes and silverware, etc. Luckily we brought our own toiletries.
The condo has a great proximity to the lake for fabulous views and hearing the sounds of the waves against the shore. We would like to return!
One suggestion would be to provide a small grill or take “grill” out of amenities lists.
Most everything was great! We loved the accommodations! The only downside was the nstructions for the TV were missing until we got into the book, which isn't your first instinct to check. The weather was beautiful so TV wasn't important to us. It was a very comfortable stay.
We have had the pleasure of renting many properties through VRBO over the years and this is among the nicest properties we’ve rented.
This unit is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the majestic and mesmerizing views of Lake Superior from both the living and bedrooms.
The communication with our hosts were also among the best and I now have several couples in my network that have asked for the link as they too want to rent for their couples getaway.
Thanks you for sharing your beautiful home with us.
Beautiful views and condo!
