Owner info

About the owner: Owners Terry and Lori Backlund have been married since August 2007. Both have had long family histories that tie them to Grand Marais. Terry is co-founder of Sven and Ole's and current owner/broker of Backlund Realty. After a long career with General Motors, Lori finally made her move to Grand Marais. We both enjoy skiing, tennis, golf and most of all, riding our Harleys.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Marais:
Grand Marais has a unique vibe rarely found in a town of this size. Grand Marais places a premium on culture. The community's Arrowhead Center for the Arts hosts performances ranging from locally produced plays to national recording artists. The renowned North House Folk School attracts students from across the country with its curriculum of folk arts and crafts and construction skills. Founded in 1947, the Grand Marais Art Colony is the oldest art colony in the state. The Johnson Heritage post has continuous showings of works by local and regional artists. Ella's Inn is only two to four blocks from most attractions including great dining, shopping and picturesque harbor views. The historical significance paired with the location makes Ella's Inn the perfect place to call home while in Grand Marais.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The guests at Ella's Inn have access to all amenities of the home. A fully equipped kitchen allows guests to dine in or enjoy fresh morning coffee. Relax and share stories of the day's adventures around the outdoor fire ring while toasting marshmallows.
