About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to the Music Maker. All the charm and lots of comfort, plus patio furniture too! This cute, comfortable cottage is located on Coast Guard Point, the peninsula that forms the northwestern edge of breath taking Grand Marais Harbor. Take a stroll right out the back door to Agate Beach. Cool off in the crisp clear waters of Lake Superior. Later walk or ride your bikes into town for dinner and a little shopping. Then head back to your beach retreat and take in one of our famous Lake Superior Sunsets. Verizon phone service is recommended if you want to use data.

So pack your summer gear (Don't forget the sun screen!)and head for a relaxing stay at the Music Maker in beautiful Grand Marais. This cottage is not a winter rental...sorry. Spring, Summer and Fall only.

Quiet, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was clean, right on the beach, and in such a quiet small town. We had a great stay. It is right at the edge of Pictured Rocks Natl Lakeshore. The owner, Susan, was very attentive and kind when we called with a question from the cottage. The gas fireplace definitely came in handy while we were there; it was an unusually chilly week. We enjoyed walking right from the back door to the edge of the lake to watch the sunset. If you are looking to unplug for your vacation, I highly recommend!

Cozy Home Away From Home on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Grand Marais many times through the years but this was by far our favorite place. It’s so nice to be right on the beach and only have to walk over the dune to be at Lake Superior. We were blessed with lovely weather and spent most of our time hiking in Pictured Rocks and this is so conveniently located close to the park.

Susan has put a lot of effort into making sure renters have everything they need and there is a lot of info on the area too. The beds were very comfy and it was great to have the wind and the waves lull us to sleep.

The cottage was well used but clean. It’s exactly what I expected for a family vacation home . It’s perfect for a couple or a family of four. The cable tv is nice if you like to watch it at night. There is no internet or wi-fi but if you have Verizon for your phone provider, you will have a good signal. I have Sprint so no service and I was roaming but my husband had Verizon so he turned on his hot spot so I could do my social media and such.

We can’t wait to return to Music Maker’s Cottage again.

The location is paradise, super sun rising and sunsets.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is small but nice. One recommendation to get new cooking pans, current choices are very used with little to no teflon left.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments and suggestions. I don't really use Teflon myself- I am more into cast iron, glass and stainless steel cookware. But I will buy some newer teflon pans for next summer. I hope that you were still able to enjoy yourself and the beautiful area. It was nice having you as our guest!

Compassionate & Understanding

  • 5 of 5

The day we were supposed to check-in, I had to rush my mom back home (3-hr drive) as she was very sick and ended up in our local hospital with pneumonia & severe dehydration. Susan and VRBO were so understanding and compassionate about the whole situation. I pray that one day I'll be able to book this cottage and enjoy everything it has to offer. Thank you so very much!

Great little cabin on beach, far from hustle and bustle.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little cabin/house on the shores of Lake Superior. All the amenities you would need, and none you don’t. A place to really unplug and unwind. Grand Marais is a cute town, but not a lot of grocery or dining options. Should plan on cooking or grilling for most meals. (I suspect most people looking to book in this area of the UP already know this). Quiet, peaceful, relaxation is the best way to describe this quaint lake side house, minutes from Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Would stay again.
