Property description

This charming cottage is located on a very secluded Lake Superior pebble beach. Enjoy the beautiful Big Lake from your panoramic beach or from the deck overlooking it. This cozy retreat is just a short drive east from Grand Marais near Judge Magney State Park the Superior Hiking Trail. You can walk 2 miles west without seeing another home. Gorgeous in any season, this lake home sparkles Spring through Fall decorated by nature's array of flowers and changing color foliage. Enjoy a peaceful, soul-renewing stay among the graceful northern pines, soaring eagles and a sky full of stars. We welcome you home.
