Why Todd and Susan Miller chose Grand Marais
We chose this location because it is very special. We are lifelong Miinnesotans 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. This is a great location for the summer festivals. Music and art seems to permeate the town and strains of music can be heard most times of the day and in to the evening. Artists are plying their wares in nearly every shop. There is often something interesting going on at the Boathouse next door, and North House Folk School is very close. On stormy nights the breaking waves send a deep rumble through the bedrock.
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.

A couple days in Grand Marais
The Aurora was perfect for my girlfriend and I to HQ out of while we were in "the North." Location was close enough to walk anywhere in town. Great views to watch Superior. The fireplace pumped made things cozy and the heated floors were very much appreciated in the morning. We are grateful to have had the time away together. We will definitely be back!

Weekend Get Away
The Aurora was perfect. Beautiful architecture, warm space, and close to everything. We had a wonderful time CC skiing, eating out, watching movies, and exploring the North Shore.
The best place to stay in Grand Marais!
I spend a lot of time in Grand Marais. This is my new favorite! The location is perfect. I can be by the water in about 20 steps, yet it is still of the busy main drag through town. As a photographer, I could watch the light change from the living room, and be to my spot in 2 minutes. Being dog friendly is huge!
The space is spotless with all the necessities of home. I loved being able to cook if I wanted or take a quick walk to the restaurants.
Thank you so much for an incredible lodging option in Grand Marais! (I almost hate to let the secret out!)
Clean, modern and wonderful
We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property. The owners communicated with us clearly and promptly and the caretakers were wonderful. They graciously accommodated our need to be fragrance free which was especially helpful.
Had a great stay at the Aurora. Great location, very comfortable. Appreciate being able to bring our pups along with us for a fun ski day at George Washington Pines.
