  • 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.!"

  • Awesome stay...

    "We were two families, each with a musician performing at the Music and Arts Festival. We have been to Grand Marais several times and this is by far the best place we have stayed and the most affordable! We enjoyed campfires every night, and never ate a meal out...although we did munch a bit at the festival. It was very relaxing, as not right in town, so even with the festival going on, our cabin time was very private. Nice yard for the kids to play yard games...we bought some yard guard so we minimized the mosquito attacks. The kids enjoyed watching movies, collecting kindling for the campfires, s'mores, pudgie pies, and roasting hotdogs over the fire. We made trips to rockhound on the beach, and a walk down the Sable Falls Trail...sad to see the dunes eroding...the beach at the bottom of the falls is completely different than it was 3 years ago. The cabin was clean, and we did not experience any odor problems as noted by the last reviewer, or rodent problems as we did at another place we stayed a few years ago. We will most definitely be back!"

  • Good base for area

    "As described this cabin was very small. We did have 8 people there for one night, but it would have been quite difficult for more nights. We ate outside on the deck, which is a fabulous addition. I was sorry to see that the photos of the water front are quite deceptive. They imply a long stretch of open beach either side of the property but thats definitely not the case.There are houses on both sides, on quite a busy road and quite close to the actual road. The house was kind of separated from neighbors by trees but one can easily hear whats going on and watch the neighbors to the north quite easily. The beach on Superior is beautiful, easy to get away from people. Both the diner and the newer bay front restaurant were great for drop ins, we didnt eat dinner at either. Dinner was had at the Dune Saloon and it was very good. Grocery shopping was very bad there, we stocked up in Munising. To my surprise fresh fish was very difficult to find. There was a local fisherman who had a store just south of the cabin, but he opened sporadically. We did get some fish there and it was delicious. The cabin was spotless, the hot water was endless it seemed, no small feat when we were there wiith two teen girls. I would have loved a gas grill, we did cook on the fire, but its not an easy task for a quick meal. Some boating equipment would have been great, a kayak or canoe. They were very expensive to rent. its something we would have made a lot of use of. The Upper Penninsula was beautiful. The walk from the Log Slide to the Au Train lighthouse was a wonderful walk, so quiet and just gorgeous views of the lake and dunes along the way."

  • What a view!

    "My husband and I stayed 10 nights at this cottage in Grand Marais. We had a great time here. The cottage had everything we needed, was very clean and comfortable. They left us some wine for our anniversary,now that was a nice surprise. (Thank you ) The pictures don't really prepare for how beautiful the view is. Great sandy beach! I couldn't wait for the sun to come up,so I could see the beauty outside. It was always changing. After several walks we felt they had the nicest view of all the rentals available on the bay. We liked how close everything was to the cottage, whether we were going to Picture Rock to hike, shopping, or just wanted to grab a bite to eat. The town is charming. We found the owners, and the people in town to be very friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning in the future."
