About Joyce Klees

I fell in love with the north shore when I moved here in my twenties. The landscape, definitely harsh at times, with it's seasonal drama and beauty continues to grip me and hold me in awe. I love to travel, but I continue to call this place home.

Presently my work is as an RN at the Sawtooth Mountain Clinic in Grand Marais. Hopefully you will not need to visit here, but if you do you will realize why we feel so lucky to have this Community Health Clinic as our health care facility. I am also known for my landscape work and ceramic art. A work of note is the Angry Trout Bathroom. Enjoy a yummy meal and then take a side trip to the bathroom to check out my work.

I also have an adventurous side and have put in many miles on the trails and waterways of this area as well as elsewhere.

Joyce Klees purchased this house in 2012

Perfect long weekend getaway for a family with young adults!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was lovely, clean, and well equipped. Everyone had a place to go tomorrow their own space, if they needed it. Two 50-something adults, and 2 sons in their early 20s. Beautiful kitchen, and a drawer full of phone charger cords! We cooked most of our meals at the cabin, enjoyed the cozy movie loft, and explored Grand Marais. As we were packing up, I mentioned to my husband that I could really handle a week here, but wasn't sure that the "boyz" would feel the same. The "Boyz" immediately responded, "YES, we would!" Enough said....

Very clean!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place. It is one of the cleanest I have stayed in. Very private. Great deck. We enjoyed our stay very much. We had a problem with one of the utilities while we stayed and the owner came out right away to check on it and then had it fixed as soon as she could. We certainly understand that things can happen. It is all in how you handle the situation and she handled it very well and was accommodating. Thanks for a great stay!
