About the property

Lake Superior Condo, 1 Bedroom, Truly Just Steps Away From The Water's Edge!

What could be better than sitting in a comfortable chair with a good book & a glass of wine...or a cup of coffee/tea...or a pint from the local brewery...and listening to the waves roll in?? This suite sits just feet from the edge of Lake Superior and immerses you into the culture of Grand Marais. A mini fridge, a coffee maker and a microwave are in place for your morning pick-me up, too. Walk to any of the nearby restaurants for wonderful, unique dining experiences . Voted "2015's Coolest Small Town in America", Grand Marais boasts a large artist's community, fine dining, live music, theater, outdoor adventure, interesting shopping choices, grocery stores and a fabulous co-op. Take a class at the infamous North House Folk School, rock hunt the hours away, drive to the nearest trailhead just a couple of miles away and hit the Superior Hiking Trail, charter a fishing boat or put your name on the list to sail the Hjordis, sign up for a scenic airplane ride. OR...stay in and do nothing except listen to the water and feel the breeze!

Wave Watcher's Suite is perfect for a nice quiet get-away on the shore of Lake Superior. It sits right in downtown Grand Marais so you can walk to absolutely everything. Please note that downtown is busy in the warmer months and there is a lot going on. It won't be as quiet of a spot during the daytime hours during such times.

Cozy, comfortable, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The Wave Watcher's Suite was perfect for our get away: beautiful view of the lake, the sounds of the waves washing up on the shore, comfortable sleeping arrangement, cozy sitting area for relaxing, no tv, in short, a wonderfully relaxing place to retreat to after exploring the town and the North Shore hiking trails. We visited Grand Marais on a quiet weekend in February and things were just that, quiet. I would definitely stay in the Wave Watcher's Suite again.

Fabulous view, very cozy, close to restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

January 30: Fabulous view, very cozy, rustic feel, close to restaurants, quiet and private. Loved the duck and goose-- buddies that inhabit the beach together. Lovely hearing the surf and watching the waves and sky. Bed very comfy. No TV (thumbs up) -- please never put one in. Great for reading, meditating, beach walking.

Owner's Response: Big thumbs-up on the "NO TV". It would defeat the purpose of the space...we agree. Thank you for the great review and please come back and stay again sometime.

Perfect Grand Marais hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing condo! The space was perfect for the weekend and had all you need including a front row seat to watch the sun rise along the water. It was more spacious than I thought it would be, plenty of space to spread out and relax including a great tub for baths! The booking and checking in/out process was so simple and relaxed, which is great vs. a busy hotel. I'll be booking this again and have already recommended it to friends!

You can't beat the value, view, or location - in town and right on the big lake!

  • 5 of 5

The Wave Watcher's Suite is a real gem tucked in a quaint spot at the base of Artists' Point in Grand Marais. For 3 years in a row, we've enjoyed staying at this very clean and comfortable suite with a lovely view located right on the beach. You can build a fire on the beach, relax on your own private deck, stroll up the beach and/or Artists' Point, or walk to the shops, taverns/breweries, harbor, and eateries. The best pizza in town is right next door at Sydney's! It's only a short drive to scenic hiking trails northeast or southwest of town. The suite has a fridge, full-size coffee maker (coffee and filters), coffee mugs, microwave, wine glasses, quality toiletries, towels, a hair dryer, curling iron, flat iron, puzzles, books... No TV or phone, but who needs them!

Cozy and not all lake views are created equal!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the Wave Watcher rental! The room is very comfortable and my wife and I were perfectly comfortable. There were no noise issues from the boarders on the main level of the property. We loved being able to walk to all restaurants and shops within Grand Marais, and benefitted greatly from the very close proximity to the lake. At least during our trip, the lake side of Artist's Point was much more active and beautiful than the harbor side -- that is, all lake views are not created equal. The view from Wave Watcher is exceptionally beautiful. We hope to return! Thanks Linda!

Lake Superior right out the front door!
Car: recommended

You'll fall in love with this waterfront condo. Wave Watcher's Suite sits directly on the shore of the amazing Lake Superior. It's located right in the heart of downtown Grand Marias....voted 2015's "Coolest Small Town in America"! Just a short walk to the popular Artist's Point where you can journey out onto the pier and see the lighthouse and the waves in their glory. Everything Grand Marais has to offer is within walking distance which makes it very easy to dine, shop & sight-see and not have to fuss with parking. Some of the most beautiful spots on the North Shore are merely a few miles away and the hiking trails are very nearby as well. Whether you want to hike, ski, snowshoe, fish, shop, relax, read....it'd be tough to find a better spot to call base camp!
