Grand Marais cabin description

Treat yourself to a stay at this new cabin over looking Greenwood Lake with lake access. 5.38 acres for privacy. Enjoy the natural environment with solar electricity. 'Wife Stamp of Approval' meaning the cabin is super clean. We don't hire our cleaning out, we do it ourselves. We also meet you on the day of your arrival to help you settle in. We know your time and money is precious which is why we do everything to make your stay perfect!

The unique location of this cabin at 1,944 feet, one of the highest points in Cook County, offers amazing views of the lake, sunrise and sunsets and eagles soaring. The normal light breeze will keep you virtually bug free as you relax on the deck or unwind by the stone campfire area.

The 'upside down' open concept design allows you to enjoy the lake view from every room in the cabin. Three bedrooms allow privacy and ample room for families. The upstairs 'kids' bedroom has a 32' flat screen television with DVD/VCR for a break from the games and outdoor fun. The kitchen has a full size refrigerator, range, microwave and all cooking items for the chef in your group. A gas barbeque grill is steps away on the fully furnished deck. Snuggle on the comfy couches and be mesmerized by the gas fireplace strategically centered between the two picture windows that make up the front wall overlooking the lake. The protected harbor allows you private launching and dockage for your boat. Infloor heat and heated garage for your snowmobiles.

The remarkable solar system provides a safe and quiet form of electricity for your comfort. Towels, beach towels and linens provided.

$1750/Week price is based on a week stay Friday to Friday. Toll Free 888-204-3257

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Hi we are Darrell and Susie Splett. We have two daughters Hattie and Karlie. Susie has 5 generations of family in Grand Marais with history on Greenwood Lake starting in the 1930s. We currently live in Thunder Bay Ontario which is a short drive to Grand Marais. We love being at the cabin away from everything including internet and TV. We always enjoy the reconnections with our children and each other. We love to fish and ride our 4-wheelers or snowmobiles in the winter. We play many games and put puzzles together on our designated puzzle table. The picture above was taken over Thanksgiving when we cut down our Christmas tree. In the summer we spend time relaxing on the deck and by the beach. We are adding a swimming platform this summer which will add a lot of fun to the lake! The trip isn't complete without a campfire! We built the ring around the fire extra wide for safety. While designing the cabin our main concept was designed around family and I feel we were very successful!

Why the Owner Chose Grand Marais:
The Brazell family has had property on Greenwood Lake since the early 1930's. This property has been in our family for years. My husband and I dreamed of building on 'The Mountain' and our dream came true.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
You will enjoy the experience of the power of the sun. Our solar system provides clean and quiet electricity to the cabin. Awareness of your power and water use is a great experience for everyone.
