About Marcia Lacey

Ken retired from Northwest Airlines and we decided to build our house on property that has been in the family since 1963. And yes we built it ourselves! We love the outdoors and especially love living on Lake Superior. We love hunting, fishing, hiking, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. I have trained dogs all my life and have one Golden Retreiver. Charlie is a 4 year old white golden. He loves all the people who stay in the Cabin. We have made many lasting friends. This is the only cottage on our property. We love to share our little 'piece of heaven'

Marcia Lacey purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Marcia Lacey chose Minnesota

When we retired up north, We wanted something to do, so we brought in a little 14 by 16 cottage to rent. We have so much fun meeting all the people who visit. When we built our home here in Hovland, we decided we had enough room to share our 'little piece of heaven'. It is a safe place for the dogs to run and have fun and not worry about busy roads. Providing a vacation rental on Lake Superior is like having a place on a small ocean.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is private. It is just like having your own cozy cottage on Lake Superior. Lake Superior is different everyday. The Flute Reed River is a great river to hike or just cool off. The cottage is private but close enough to get map information or a spice you are missing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Nelsons' from Good Thunder plus Samantha & Reggy, our Golden Retrievers, arrived on Monday to very foggy and cool conditions. However, the next few days were amazing. One morning we traveled to Grand Portage State Park and the Falls were amazing as was the double rainbow surrounding them. The cabin again so cozy and our dogs, plus Charlie & Rusty spent lots of time in the water. We are back in the middle of July so rest up Charlie because Reggy will try" to run you ragged!

Perfect Peace

  • 5 of 5

What great place. It had everything my family needed. It was like camping without the hassle. Everything worked great. The views were incredible. I miss the camp fires on Lake Superior every night. Marcia is a great host and historian of the area. I am looking forward to coming back.

Very inviting, cozy and clean!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was the perfect size for us (two adults and a dog). We loved being able to walk out in the front yard and be right on the shore of Lake Superior! The fire pit right on the lake was a huge bonus! Very quiet and peaceful! Marcia and Charlie (the dog) were the ultimate hosts. Felt like home away from home! Can't wait to go back!

Cozy and relaxing, and fun parks nearby

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Marcia's cabin twice now and it's such an amazing getaway. It's also a perfect location to take quick days trips around the area's parks and hiking trails. Can't beat the campfires on the shore, though. For all you Agate hunters, Paradise Beach is dangerously close by!
