Artists Loft, with its incomparable view of the Harbor, Sailboats,Lighthouse and Coast Guard Station, is the only private home rental in Downtown Grand Marais on the Harbor. The view is what it is all about!
Artists Loft is right in the heart of downtown Grand Marais on beautiful Harbor Park. It is a great home-base for enjoying the gentle activity of the Village or easily getting away for day trips to the BWCA (ask about the canoe! Little Shark Fishing boat!), many area lakes,streams and deserted beaches. Just ask me where they are.

Artist's Loft has two bedrooms and one bathroom with a claw foot tub and a view of the Harbor. There is also a cool birch- paneled original 1950 Vagabond Travel Trailer for extra guests and overflow or for a economical individual stay. Ask for more info.

Even though Artists Loft is right downtown on the harbor front, it is graced with a gorgeous secluded quiet off street wildflower garden with decks and lounging chairs and tables to relax in the sun or have a intimate outside breakfast lunch or dinner. Cook in with our fully equipped kitchen or get it to go, semi-catered from a choice of several fabulous restaurants.

In the evening,step next door to the Gun Flint Tavern and enjoy a microbrew or Mojito in the 'Ravens Nest' lake-view deck and then listen to world class music in the early evening. The music at 'The Tavern', as we call it, ranges from gentle Gypsy Jazz to Folk and Folk Rock for the occasional night of dancing!

Wake with the gulls in the morning sun and enjoy the quiet solitude of downtown as it gently comes to life. Stroll to the Pie Place or Blue Water Cafe for breakfast just half a block away. You have it ALL at Artists Loft!

The thing to remember about Artists Loft is that every day is a beautiful magical day whether it is sunny and warm or stormy and wild; all year round nature's magic unfolds right in front of you over the greatest of lakes, Lake Superior!

A little History about Artists Loft:
It was built in the early 1900s by Chet Boisvert. Chet was the village barber and the shop was equipped with showers for the lumberjacks to come in from the woods for a hot shower! It also had a adjoining beauty parlor downstairs where my Jewelry and Photography Gallery are now. He was also a avid Democrat and held party meetings at the Loft on Main Street. In my guest book I found that his grandchildren had stayed here when I first opened Artists Loft. They left an entry in the guestbook telling of heartwarming memories such as...
- ' The last time I slept in this bedroom was 43 years ago. I can still remember hearing my people cheering at 6 am when they announced the Victory of Harry Truman over Dewey in 1948!'
- 'I remember watching, from the front windows, pulp boats loading logs from the thousands of logs floating in the harbor'
You can still feel those memories at Artists Loft as you gaze out the windows and still see fishing boats and sailboats bobbing in the breezes.
There is a 25.00 per night per person fee over 2 people. Thanks!

Come share the Magic!

                      Year Purchased: 1987

                      About the owner: In the backyard at Artists Loft. Artists Loft was my home for many years. Below Artists Loft is my Jewelry Design Studio Superior Design Jewelry and Gallery Boreal Light Imagery Gallery. Ask about a family Portrait or graduation shoot discount!

                      Why the Owner Chose Grand Marais:
                      Because Grand Marais was really amazing and I saw a beauty underneath the old building so I nursed it back to the simple elegant state that it once was!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      You are in the Heart of Downtown Grand Marais right above my Jewlery design studio and Photo gallery and can stroll about, enjoy the restaurants and bars and not worry about having that 3rd glass of wine or Marg and walk on home!
