Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a fabulous getaway in Grand Marais. The cabin was immaculate, very comfortable for our family of 6, cozy even in 10 below zero weather. The cottage is exactly as described, the winter view of Lake Superior is great. The location is perfect - an easy walk to the Gunflint Tavern, Java Moose, and all the other special spots in Grand Marais, plus an easy drive to downhill or X-C skiing. We hope to return next winter if not before.

Our family loved our stay at the Grand Marais Getaway! The home is beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

This property is exceptional. It was so clean and equipped with everything that we needed. The dog sledding was also an amazing experience. I recommend the home and the dogsledding. Thank you Matt and Nancy.

Serene setting to recharge, relax, and enjoy all the Northshore has to offer

  • 5 of 5

The home was incredible and the location could not have been better. My wife and I stayed for an extended weekend with our dog and we could have not picked a better spot on the North Shore. The home is conveniently located near all of the best restaurants and shops, and best of all in the Fall you have a view of the harbor.

Great House in a Great Area

  • 5 of 5

Glad that we picked this place for our trip into the Great White North. Grand Marais is an awesome town and the whole town is easily accessible from the location of this property. Property was very well kept and stocked and it didn't take but a moment to figure out anything in the whole house. Really makes you want to have a place like this all your own in a place like this. We brought our big English Mastiff and he had a great time with more than enough room to operate. The ping pong table was a great touch and we found ourselves playing that in our downtime. Thank you for the great place!
