  • Our special wedding day

    "We were looking for a great place to have an outside wedding up in the North Shore area. After finding pictures on the internet, we contacted the owners of the Grand Retreat, to see if they allowed it. They did indeed, in fact they offered us a weekend to check it out ahead of time. We fell in love with the place. But because it was in December, we really couldn't scope out the land as well. So in June, when my family and I were camping in Schroeder, I asked if we could check out the property again to get a feel for the wedding layout. They aloud us to another quick visit, when there was no occupancy. When I asked for recommendations for an officient, and about catering options, they were right on it. I had answers right away, or within a day if they weren't sure. When the time grew closer to our wedding date, they were in constant contact with us offering any help we needed. Our wedding day ended up being beautiful! We created great memories in this beautiful place, with great outside pictures along the creek and wilderness type settings. The cabin was very spacious for the whole crowd and for all of us to sleep. Our family, relatives and friends were very impressed with the Grand Retreat. During our week stay, we enjoyed both indoor and outdoor fires. We enjoyed sitting on the deck over looking the back yard, listening to the sound of the creek. We also did plenty of exploring in the surounding areas. We even drove up to the border and found the beautiful waterfall of the Pigeon River, in the Grand Portage State Park. I can't wait until we can visit again. I very much recommend a family stay or even a special event here. Thanks again for the great stay here!!"

  • End of summer get away

    "My husband and I stayed in the Timberdoole cabin. We brought our 17 foot boat. The driveway is pretty steep-we pulled in with the boat on the trailer but we used the neighbors driveway (that connects) to take the boat back up. The public launch is close so that was nice. Fishing was not as good as expected. We did have evenings/mornings of rain the weather cooled pretty quickly that week - so that may have switched the fish off. The cabin was clean and comfortable with modern amenities (gas range, microwave, gas fireplace, Dish TV with limited channels). The bed is a double. The floor plan is very open which is nice. The deck is large and gets afternoon sun, so it's a nice place to soak up some rays. The water in the cabin is MN north hard (rusty) water - so as suggested bring water to drink. The waterfront is soft sloping with sandy bottom. The sandwich cafe in Marcell was nice little break. They're open for breakfast and lunch with a decent selection and have free wi-fi. The grocery store in Big Fork is big enough for all your needs food and a few essential needs. The Plum Tree Antique store in Marcell is quaint and worth the visit."

  • Will return

    "Clean and comfortable place. Bedrooms had plenty of room. The free laundry was a huge plus. Back patio has a nice place for a fire. Too far from town for my kids to walk."
