Great Views Of The Lighthouse And Bay!!!

SPECIAL DISCOUNTED RATE FROM OCT 23 TO NOV 13, 2017. Summer of 2018 will be weekly bookings, Saturday to Saturday, from June 23 to September 8, 2018. All other times 2 night minimum.

The Bay Watch Cabin has an awesome view to the lighthouse, West Bay and out to Lake Superior. New flooring this year throughout, and some new appliances, fixtures and furniture. Comfortable bed covers, club chairs and colorful rugs are part of the cabin's decor. The Bay Watch Cabin was built in the 60s, and is comfortable and homey with a slight retro feel.

Relax in the Adirondack chairs around the fire pit in the back yard while cooking your steaks on the charcoal park grill a few feet away. The Bay Watch Cabin's deck is great for relaxing and taking in the view with a cocktail or morning coffee, or for having a romantic evening dinner.

It is just a short walk to the center of town, and the beach access road is only about 100 yards to the west (there is also another road to the beach to the east). The Bay Watch Cabin is set back only one lot from the beachfront, and on the bay side of the road. So, no houses or road in your view to the lake.

The Bay Watch Cabin is a compact 2 bedroom and 1 bath cabin. The bedrooms are large and the cabin is well appointed for a short or long-term stay. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, and bedroom 2 has a full/twin bunk bed.

So, whether you are a family of 4 or 5, or two couples, this would suit you well. At Bay Watch Cabin the beds are all made up for you and the bath linen, kitchen linen and kitchen items are all onsite ready for your use.

The Bay Watch also has an additional fold out bed and a queen futon. These can be made up for additional guests for a small additional fee. See the guest guide below to get an idea of how it could feel with additional guests.

The kitchen is compact with a full size fridge and a new gas electronic range. The laundry has a stacked front loader washer and dryer for your use. The house also has a large gas heater which easily caters to the whole home.

The living room comes appointed with a flat screen television, cable television, queen futon chair, and two club chairs. There are also a variety of DVDs, and games for adults and children, to use for those times when you are indoors or just want to relax.

At various times each day at the Bay Watch Cabin you will hear the Catholic Church chime their lovely songs across Grand Marais. Come and take in the peaceful surrounds of Grand Marais with one awesome view.

CHANGE OVER DAY: From late June to early September weekly (7 nights) bookings from Friday to Friday. All other times a 2 night minimum with change over day open.

OPEN: Currently open from May to early November. Closed early November through April (subject to weather). Feel free to inquire.

INTERNET: None in the Bay Watch Cabin. Available at various places around town, including (subject to change without notice) at the Diner a short distance away, the Grand Marais Tavern, and at the Grand Marais Outfitters in town.

9 renters = can't do it

1. Visit the local restaurants: The West Bay Diner (you will wait for your food, but it is good), The Sportsmans (a real U.P. feel to it), The Dunes Saloon (the local watering hole with some really good pizza), the Breakwall Bakery and Cafe (the newest restaurant in town).

2. Swim at East Bay or West Bay beaches.

3. Walk Agate Beach from the lighthouse to Sable Falls. Or walk along the road to Sable Falls west along Carlson Street and H-58, then down the side of the falls, and back to the Lake Street in town.

4. Walk the trails both east and west of Grand Marais.

5. Visit the Agate Museum and other antique and gift shops in town.

6. Thursday night is farmers' market in the town park - locals sell their homegrown and homemade goods - there are some excellent cooks living in Grand Marais.

7. See Dennis/Kim at the Grand Marais Outfitters to organize or rent a kayak, a four wheeler, or a charter boat tour/fishing expedition.

8. Visit the log slide lookout about 13 miles west of Grand Marais off H-58.

9. Visit Pictured Rocks that is about 40 minutes west of Grand Marais off H-58.

10. Use the grill on the grass area, cook your steaks, sit on your deck and enjoy your steak with a cocktail or soda while looking out at the lighthouse and water.

FROM M-77 - Travel on M-77 toward Grand Marais, go down the hill into town, turn right on Randolph St and continue on veering to the right onto Grand Marais Avenue. Follow Grand Marais Avenue for about 500 feet, and the cabin is on the left about 100 feet after the Catholic Church.

Cosy cottage on the bay

  • 5 of 5

My family of four including a three year old and an infant had a delightful stay at this little cottage with our two dogs. It was a short walk down to the beach which our son and dogs loved. Everything we needed was provided. Beds were very comfortable. We especially enjoyed grilling over the campfire and making Smores. This was a great home base to relax and enjoy Pictured Rocks, Lake Superior, and Seney.

Wonderful cabin wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about this lovely cabin. Great location, wonderful view, and super clean. Tisha is wonderful to work with and responds quickly and Helen is fabulous as well. It was great having towels and linens provided and all the dishes and utensils you need are available as well. We have 2 small children and it was a great setup. Thank you!

Nice cottage

  • 3 of 5

There was some small things that it lacked and expected items to be there, like cooking utensils, better pots and pans, fire poker, grilling utensils, and paper and pen. Maybe even some more games to choose from instead of one's picked up at garage sale. It was cozy, clean, and nice view of the lighthouse. Close to town to walk to the beach and enjoy the town. Beautiful sunset. No WiFi.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have considered your suggestions for the kitchen and grilling items, and pen and paper and have purchased some new stainless steel pots and pans, a non-stick copper frying pan, a grill set and some pens and paper. We consistently strive to improve the cabin for the comfort of our guests and we welcome constructive feedback. As for the games, they came with the cabin when we purchased it and we thought some guests might appreciate that they remain. They are probably antiques. Thank you for staying.
