  • Girls Trip

    "The Red Chalet was a wonderful cabin to rent. It accommodated all of us. One of the options that Girls like was all the storage - hooks, cubbies, were great for all of us getting ready. Comfortable Beds, furniture and a good supply of cooking equipment. The transaction with the owner was prompt and smooth. It was 1 mile from town, which was a nice walk. The towns people I found were very friendly."

  • 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."

  • Exactly as described, very clean

    "Very, very clean, well kept. Set in a beautiful wooded area. Short walk to town on quiet dirt road. One parent with three teens had plenty of room. Comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen. We have come to Grand Marais two previous summers, stayed on the beach both times (at the Great Escape cottage, and another one right next to it), but the beach-front rentals are getting pricey, so this was a great alternative. I love this cottage."

  • Quaint and perfect

    "Very quaint and clean rental in a perfect location. We were able to walk to the deserted beach for perfect sunsets and sit at the harbor when the wind came up. Stu was very easy to work with and didn't add all the red tape and fees you usually get with other rentals. This is the perfect place to stay to explore Pictured Rocks National Park and you can walk to Sable Falls along the beach. Very unique weekend...thanks Stu."
