Perfect base for exploring the area with convenience of being in town for checking out shops and dining spots. The ping pong table was a nice bonus for indoor activity in inclement weather. Private backyard for grilling and outdoor seating.

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.

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.
