About Charlie & Pam Hile

Hello!

We're Pam and Charlie Hile and we are IN LOVE with Grand Marais and the North Shore! We manage our own property so you're not dealing with a 3rd party or rental company. We personally take care of all communication and are totally invested in your stay at our "home away from home." When you call with any questions or issues, it's one of us that will answer your phone call and make sure that you have what you need.

A little bit about us... we're passionate about family, friends, the outdoors, going on wild adventures and creating meaningful memories. We love to hike, bike, cross country ski, listen to music, enjoy a good cup of coffee in the morning and a great glass of local craft beer at night. We love to watch sunrises, sunsets, the northern lights, rolling waves and wild life. We enjoy people, travel and cultures that are different from our own. We appreciate good conversation with a bit of sarcasm and quick wit thrown in for good measure. We're eager to learn and try new things. We're best friends and we've added the North Shore to the list of things that feed our souls.

Charlie & Pam Hile purchased this condo in 2015

Why Charlie & Pam Hile chose Minnesota

Why this property? Because it's right on the shore of the largest freshwater lake in the entire world and sits just 4 miles from the charming town of Grand Marais. We love the big lake and all of its' mysterious moods! The North Shore provides us with a four season playground to do all the things we love to do! There are endless bike, hiking and ski trails with a waterfall around just about every corner. Every morning we wake up to all the colors of a majestic sunrise over the lake without even having to leave our cozy bed. And... besides all of the state parks, forests and wildlife... there's the wonderful, "Coolest Small Town in America" (voted on by the public and named by the NY Times) town of Grand Marais. Grand Marais is a friendly, quaint (yet modern) fishing village that hosts great restaurants, a new brew pub, endless venues for awesome music, a coop grocery store, the North House Folk School (where you can learn just about any skill or craft imaginable or gather as a community to dance, bake bread or sing around a campfire), a diverse art scene and all of this sits right on the shore of Lake Superior. There's a beautiful public beach for lake gazing or rock skipping with the light house on "Artist's Point" twinkling in the background.

What makes this condo unique

We chose our condo on the shore of Lake Superior first and foremost because of the stunning, panoramic views of Lake Superior! With over 26' of floor to ceiling windows, you have a view of the big lake from the living room, dining area, kitchen and bedroom. The private patio is perfect for coffee in the morning, a good book and lunch in the afternoon, and your beverage of choice at sun set. Terrace Point is a small and quiet community. The design of our condo was influenced by the works of Frank Lloyd Wright who was famous for bringing the outdoors inside and our condo does just that. Designed in a 5 sided pentagon, the Lake Superior ledge rock fireplace is the center point of the living room and dining area. The kitchen boasts of granite counter tops and beautiful cherrywood cabinets. The bedroom has a comfortable king-sized bed where you can take in the sun rise upon waking in the morning or view the moon shimmering on the lake at night right outside your window . The large bathroom has a slate, jet-powered shower with room for 2 and a large, cedar sauna to relax in. The heated floors (carpet and stone) keep you cozy no matter what the season. Terrace Point 11B is the perfect place to set down your bags and enjoy Lake Superior out your front door and all of Cooke County, the Boundary Waters and the Gunflint Trail right outside your back door.

* INVITE FAMILY OR FRIENDS to share the North Shore experience with you and rent our 2nd condo, Terrace Point 15B in addition. Terrace Point 15B is also an end unit and offers the same stunning, panoramic view and sits right on the shoreline of Lake Superior!

Owner's Response: Ryan, We agree 100% - what's not to love? Between magnificent Lake Superior, hundreds of miles of hiking trails with waterfalls at every turn, the quaint town of Grand Marais with fine dining, a brewery, local music and the art colony, let alone the comfort of Terrace Point with it's views of the big lake (without even having to get out of bed), the sauna and fireplace... what's not to love? Come see us again soon! Pam & Charlie

Beautiful location with all the windows to enjoy it!

  • 5 of 5

This place is as nice as the pictures, it will not disappoint! Could probably use an updated TV with access to a hdmi port for any media you want to view, but there is satellite. But when the weather is good, you won't want any of that anyway. Perfect spot!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write us a review Matt! We're in the process of installing a smart TV so when you come back to see us again (and we hope you will), it will be in place. We're glad you had good weather during your stay and that you enjoyed your time on the North Shore. Pam & Charlie

Amazing views! Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip "up north" and this condo couldn't have been more perfect! Exactly as described and as photographed - extremely convenient location for hiking Gunflint and exploring Cook county. Secluded, yet not too far from town. Amenities were fantastic. The unobstructed views were breathtaking! Would definitely return if back this way!

Owner's Response: Erica - Thank you for your generous and kind review! We're always pleased when our guests have a wonderful experience at Terrace Point! We too think the views of Lake Superior are the very best and we find ourselves mesmerized by the push and pull of the waves on the big lake. We certainly hope you'll come back and stay with us again next time you head up to the North Shore! Pam & Charlie

Perfect location for hiking the North Shore during waterfall season!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the property & it's location! This time of the year, the in-unit sauna really came in handy-we used it daily.

The only negative was the noisy refrigerator which kicks on every 20 minutes or so. It's so loud that it almost rattles the windows.

Owner's Response: Jen & Scott, We're thrilled to hear that you absolutely loved Terrace Point and it's location. We agree, the sauna is lovely when there's a chill off the lake. Although we're not so thrilled to hear that the fridge was rattling during your stay, it was the first we had heard of it. We've since had it repaired and we apologize for the inconvenience. We hope you'll come back and stay with us again! Pam & Charlie

Great views from entire unit. Close to town and state parks.

  • 5 of 5

We've always been a fan of the north shore and Grand Marais and were looking for a spot right on the lake. This cozy unit did not disappoint. After an day of exploring the sauna was a great relaxing escape. Sunrise view from bed was amazing. Looking forward to returning in summer to spend time on the outside patio and enjoying the sounds of the waves.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review Carolyn! We look forward to having you back again this summer. Having your morning coffee or evening glass of wine on the patio while watching the waves and listening to the birds is priceless. And yes, the views of the sunrise from the comfort of bed are the best! We'll look forward to hearing from you soon (the summer and fall weekends are booking up fast!). Kind regards, Pam & Charlie
