About Darrell or Susie Splett

Hi we are Darrell and Susie Splett. We have two daughters Hattie and Karlie. Susie has 5 generations of family in Grand Marais with history on Greenwood Lake starting in the 1930s. We currently live in Thunder Bay Ontario which is a short drive to Grand Marais. We love being at the cabin away from everything including internet and TV. We always enjoy the reconnections with our children and each other. We love to fish and ride our 4-wheelers or snowmobiles in the winter. We play many games and put puzzles together on our designated puzzle table. The picture above was taken over Thanksgiving when we cut down our Christmas tree. In the summer we spend time relaxing on the deck and by the beach. The trip isn't complete without a campfire! We built the ring around the fire extra wide for safety. While designing the cabin our main concept was designed around family and I feel we were very successful!

Darrell or Susie Splett purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Darrell or Susie Splett chose Grand Marais

The Brazell family has had property on Greenwood Lake since the early 1930's. This property has been in our family for years. My husband and I dreamed of building on 'The Mountain' and our dream came true.

What makes this cabin unique

You will enjoy the experience of the power of the sun. Our solar system provides clean and quiet electricity to the cabin. Awareness of your power and water use is a great experience for everyone.

Beautiful house with great views

  • 5 of 5

Susie and Darrell’s house was perfect for our fall getaway. The house is clean and comfortable and is oriented to take advantage of its stunning view of Greenwood Lake. If you rise early, the view of the sun rising across the lake is spectacular.

If you’re looking for seclusion within striking distance of Grand Marais, it would be hard to do better.

Stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable house perched above Greenwood Lake has a stunning view of the lake and its islands from the deck and the huge windows. Greenwood Lake is beautiful and very quiet with only the occasional fishing boat (and once, a seaplane!). There are very few visible houses. We enjoyed canoeing and fit 2 medium adults and one small adult and dog into the canoe (there is no kayak). The beach is wonderful. The downstairs bedroom has a very comfortable memory foam bed, and there were no issues with gas smell from the garage. The kitchen is well-equipped. Communicating with the owners took a little persistence but they did respond eventually.

Beautiful Cabin with Some Challenges

  • 3 of 5

The cabin offered amazing views of the lake, the northern lights, sheets of rain and billowing mist. Amazing. The hummingbirds, trying to stay warm, were busy at the feeder.The communal space upstairs was fantastic for our 7-person retreat, the hiking in the area beautiful.

The challenges:

First, fumes from the garage (where six snowmobiles are tucked in for the season) permeated the downstairs bedroom, which was usable only with closed door, the window open and heat off--which, fortunately, one of us did not mind even though the nights were in the low forties. One of the upstairs bedrooms, situated above the garage, also smelled of the fumes on occasion: a health risk and serious drawback to a very beautiful space. Maybe this is a seasonal issue only--but it was very noticeable and unpleasant.

Second, with seven of us, all very eager to use as little energy and water as possible, hot water supplies in the shower did not last through the rainy weekend. Brisk temperature and very low water pressure.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. You were our first spring guest and I'm afraid I forgot to turn the water heater off of vacation mode. We could have easily solved that concern and wish you would have phoned. There were two "new" snowmobiles added to storage and perhaps one leaked. I apologize and again that will be taken care of. With the additional toys we have acquired we are adding a storage area separate from the garage. Our guests experience is very important to us. I hope we have the opportunity to host you and your friends again. Sincerely; Darrell and Susie

Amazing Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cabin. Darrell and Suzzie were very good at communicating with us prior to and during our stay. The view and the cabin are better than advertised. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay again if we are in the area. Thank you!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided last minute to take a quick trip up the shore for a mini moon after our wedding. This property looked perfect and we were so glad that they accepted our two dogs. Upon arrival we could not believe how beautiful the cabin truly was. The owners were such kind people as well. I would absolutely recommend taking a vacation here!

Peaceful and relaxing! Enjoy the music of the birds and loons from the cabin or on the lake. Hike, bike, boat, or canoe on the lake. Take a drive up the historic Gunflint Trail to enjoy the many special places like the Chik-Wauk museum which features the history of the Gunflint Trail including my grandfather. Grand Marais is only a 30 minute drive for your fill of the World's Best Donuts owned by my sister-in-law.
