Fantastic location, well designed house and comfortable for 4
We loved this well designed property and it’s proximity to fantastic hiking and biking. The town was shut down understandably because of the coronavirus which we knew ahead of time, but other visitors can expect to be able to walk to a couple restaurants, shops a brewery and coffee shop. I’m actually thankful that only 4 of our family could come rather than 6. As noted in the description, there are 2 bedrooms. If the 5-6 persons sleep in the living room which opens to the small but well appointed kitchen space, that leaves no other living space for the night owl or early bird in the group. Very comfortable for 2 couples with a bedroom and bathroom on separate floors. Would love to stay here again when North House Folk School reopens.
This property was as enjoyable as previous reviews stated and then some.
Beautiful views and beautiful home! Everything you need for a peaceful get away. We did lots of hiking around the area. Owners were quick in responding to anything we needed.
Lovely modern architecture in the heart of Grand Marais
A fun, modern, architect-designed vacation home with stunningly framed views from the 3rd-floor kitchen/dining/living area. Short walk to nearly any attraction in town, and a few minutes' drive to hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing trails. Comfortable, fun, and convenient.
Thanks so much! We are glad you get the vibe. Thanks so much for staying with us. As a returning customer please consider booking direct next time for the lowest possible price and best possible communication tools. Hopefully you saved our direct website info, otherwise our phone number will help us direct you there. If not, just try to find us on the web. Cheers and thanks again! Todd and Susan
In the heart of Grand Marais but not on a busy street.

Why Todd and Susan Miller chose Grand Marais
We chose this location 15 years ago because it is very special. We are lifelong Minnesotans and have been passing through Grand Marais our whole lives. We wanted a home on the North Shore, and we believe that Grand Marais is the jewel of the North Shore. Within Grand Marais we wanted to be close to the action and the water. Although this is a very small town, it has big shoulders when it comes to culture and beauty. We believe our specific location is magical because the big lake cools us in summer and warms us in winter. We never get tired of the many moods of Lake Superior and enjoy watching the lake from this property. We started our first rentals next door to the Sky House and we based those on North Shore fish houses. Most of those were restorations of existing homes and we used recycled items where ever we could. We have deeply enjoyed creating special spaces, so it was a logical progression for us to work with one of the most respected architects in Minnesota: David Salmela. We have deeply enjoyed our partnership with this legendary architect, and with the creation of Sky House our life adventure continues.
What makes this House unique
Covid-19 requirements. All guests must agree. We are happy to accept your reservation. We have adopted a protocol that protects both you and our cleaners from COVID-19. And most importantly, we insist that you join us in protecting our aging resident population in Grand Marais. We have a disproportionately older population of elderly here and our community is very firm about refusing guests who do not take the need for social distancing as seriously as everyone here does. While in Grand Maris you MUST maintain 6 feet of distance at all times with anyone outside of your family group. If you are unable to do so you must take action to resolve the situation. Some hiking trails and sidewalks can be tight and if you can't maintain 6' feet of distance please sort it out before it is a problem. We strongly recommend wearing masks in public. Please respect our sensitivities up here. At the time of writing this we have NO cases of Covid-19 in our county. Our simple clinic can not handle any cases of Covid, we have no ventilators and no ICU. Your actions will help ensure that we maintain our good health and protect our vulnerable population. If guests are flaunting our requirements we will likely be shut down by area authorities or choose to shut down ourselves. So please be excellent ambassadors for all visitors to Grand Marais. 1) Are any in your group experiencing any signs of illness such as coughing, aches, or fever? We can not accept any guests with these symptoms. Please respond that all are healthy. 2) If any in your group have been diagnosed with Covid-19 or suspect that you may have had undiagnosed Covid -19 in the last two weeks we can not host you. Please cancel this reservation request. 3) Has everyone in your group been effectively socially isolating for the previous 3 weeks prior to your arrival in our community? If not, please cancel this reservation request due to reasons stated above. If you have been doing any traveling prior to coming here, please c
