  • Perfect Winter Getaway!

    "My boyfriend and I just returned from the most tranquil and peaceful stay at the Grizzly Den and will definitely return! The cabin is in the most beautiful and remote setting along the Trout river with miles of snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing trails! Even in the dead of winter we were toasty warm and cozy inside the cabin. It has everything you need! We had hot water, lights, gas stove, and the gas fireplace was sooo cozy and perfect. Not having internet or a TV was a huge plus as there is so much to do and it is SO unbelievably refreshing to get away from the chaos of life back home. We brought books and games but found we were active outdoors the entire time and just wanted to cuddle up in front of the fireplace with hot cocoa and some homecooked meals when not active. It was so relaxing! Steve and Deb had all the dishes inside that we would have needed. They even had a gift basket waiting for us when we arrived! They also have a selection of games in case you didn't think to bring your own. Additionally, Steve and Deb were SO warm and inviting. The gift basket upon our arrival was a great touch, and Steve was so friendly and happy to take us by snowmobile to the cabin upon our arrival. He made it very clear that he would be available if we had ANY questions or needed anything at all, but the cabin was so perfect that we didn't need a thing. We are already making plans to come back here in the summer and next winter again. It is seriously the perfect relaxing getaway! Just what everyone needs to relax and bring life back to basics. Just beautiful and great to rent from such wonderful people."

  • A wonderful week of vacation

    "When we started to plan this year's trip to the US which had to include a visit with old friends on Douglas Lake, south of the Mackinaw bridge, we realized that this would be a chance to spend some days on the UP, an area which was totally unknown to us Swiss. Grand Marais with its proximity to the Pictured Rock National Lakeshore, and also not too far from the Seney National Wildlife Refuge, was soon the choice. Then we found the description of Plover Retreat in the internet and thought: That's it. How right we were. Rental agreement and payment from overseas functioned with the kind support by the local manager. Her directions by e-mail how to drive to the cabin helped us to find it without any problem on a sunny late afternoon and to settle there with ease. It was the start of a marvelous week in which we enjoyed to explore the beautiful and fascinating landscape on Lake Superior by hiking, to learn about the local history and to be at leisure in this wonderful cabin. Its rustic and carefully decorated wooden interior is well arranged and equipped with everything what is needed for a real 'retreat'. It was so peaceful to sit back in one of the comfortable armchairs and to page through the botany and wildlife books from the little cupboard. Even the Webster's rendered its service when we were lost with an American term. In town, we met friendly people who gave us many interesting information about passed days and everyday life in this region. If Plover Retreat wasn't so far away from home we would come back very soon to this neat spot. Well, who knows? A big 'thank you' to the owners for making Plover Retreat available for rent and to the local manager for her perfect administrative Service."

  • Perfect retreat

    "Our family had a wonderful time at the cottage. We had unlimited use of the private beach, fire pit, and kayaks. It was truly a relaxing and worry-free vacation. We are sure to recommend this special retreat to our family and friends!"

  • Awesome Honeymoon at the Great Escape!

    "My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Grand Marais and we stayed at the Great Escape. We absolutely loved everything about it! We loved the location, the cozy atmosphere of the place, and the cleanliness of the cottage when we arrived. Sure, it was pretty chilly during the time we were there (it actually snowed our last full day there!), but we still had a great time looking for Agates on the beach and sitting by the little fireplace, sipping tea and coffee. We definitely plan on returning to the Great Escape (maybe when the weather is a little bit warmer), it is definitely a gem in the beautiful U.P.!"
