About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to the Mermaid's Retreat, a newly built two story home located just down from Agate Point on a private beach in lovely Grand Marias, Michigan. Our home offers a panoramic view of Lake Superior and private access to Agate beach and the southern shore of Lake Superior. Each window offers a breath-taking view while our inviting home provides all the comforts of a modern house. Both Sable and Grand Marias Lights are part of the amazing view.

Two stories tall with brand new queen size beds and furnishings and a dishwasher make our 'U.P. Dream' a unique Grand Marais rental. The lower level family room is a wonderful spot to relax and features an entertainment center and a queen size bunk bed set. Located on Coast Guard Point, we are a short walk from downtown Grand Marais and shopping. A quick bike ride will land you at Pictured Rocks National Lake Shore where one can find ample hiking, beach combing and wildlife viewing opportunities. Or simply stay put and enjoy all the fun and relaxing available right at the Mermaid's Retreat: botchee ball, volley ball and other games. Gas grill for cooking on the deck. Walking distance to the pier and Grand Marais Bay.

At the end of the day there is no better place to watch the sunset. Whether on the deck or from the cozy comfort of our living room, the uninterrupted view is spectacular.

With sleeping accommodations for up to six people, our home is an ideal place for families and friends to get together, relax and reconnect with one another.

Enjoy nature and all of it's splendor without giving up the comforts of home.
