About the property

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This amazing new northern Michigan lodge designed and custom built by the owner awaits the arrival of your group and the opportunity to offer priceless, unmatched memories. The “Palace” as referred to by the locals, is situated on the “ridge” in Grand Marais and features a panoramic view of the city of Grand Marais, as well as, the marina, harbor, bay and of course the grand Lake Superior itself and its sandy white beaches. The city is only 3 blocks away (a short bike ride or walk) making this location a family fun get away. We offer several bikes on site or bring your own to explore the city and the miles and miles of paved, quiet, lightly traveled, scenic roads where nature is in abundance. This house is situated with a peaceful and georgeous view of the bay and Lake Superior offering cathedral ceilings and the ‘wall of windows’ in this unique 4-level, high end log home inviting many breathtaking sites of freighters as well as one-of-a-kind sunsets, a view of the private, stocked trout pond, nine waterfalls and the artesian well. You will also enjoy watching deer, chipmunks, humming birds, raccoons, an occasional eagle, wolf or bear in their natural habitat right outside the windows because this home is on a quiet “no outlet” road. The full length decks on both sides of the home and several wooded acres surrounding it allow for outdoor fun and awesome views of wild life first hand. An outdoor stone campfire area with seating that overlooks amazing sunsets and the night time lights of Grand Marais must be enjoyed (firewood supplied!) The large and wide circular, cement driveway allows ample room for several vehicles, trailers, ATV’s, boats or snowmobiles plus easy turn a-rounds.

The home décor offers that “rustic and woodsy” feel. There are many local affects including photos, antiques and many trophy animal mounts that are native to the area, in fact, several from the grounds itself. The first thing you will notice upon entering this log home is the amazing fresh smell of newness and wood. You’ll be in awe of the spacious great room that engulfs the living, dining and kitchen area. Several door walls offer access to the full length deck that enables you to view Grand Marais and Lake Superior. A gas grill (please clean after use) is also situated on the deck with large picnic tables for your use which allows an awesome area for dining while watching nature and the beautiful evening sunsets. If you prefer to prepare and cook a gourmet meal, you’ll enjoy doing so in our high end kitchen with stainless appliances, custom hardwood cabinetry, granite counters and copper sink. The large, rustic wooden kitchen table offers enough seating for 8 people and the full length wood and granite bar provides room for another 4 on sturdy, wooden bar stools. Hand-hewned hardwood floors encompass the entire downstairs living area which offers the perfect foundation for the leather and rustic wooden furniture. We offer a high chair, crib & booster seat for your convenience so there is no need to bring them from home. The living room area features a 14” thick carved front door, large flat screen tv, satellite and a carved mantle. The laundry and office area finish off the main level with new, full size front loading washer and dryer and utility tub. There is also a large desk/work area with a desk top computer and printer for your use. Our home also offers WIFI throughout. Also on site are beach chairs and towels, several bikes, a cooler, and IPOD docking station and fishing gear and tackle for your use.

Up the stairway (made of ½ logs) you will find wall to wall plush carpet in the bedroom areas. The master bedroom, with a king size bed, allows you to wake refreshed in the morning while listening to the sound of the water from the waterfall dropping twelve feet into the crystal clear pond and a view of Lake Superior and Grand Marais that is simply breathtaking. The second bedroom features a queen size bed and large walk-in closet and full length mirror. The third bedroom offers a double bed with a twin bed on top and huge closet. Each bedroom includes a tv, dvd player and dvd collection. The bonus loft area also allows for extra sleeping with a queen size futon and roll-away. The level also has a gaming station and a tv with satellite. Both bathrooms are full, offering double sinks, plenty of counter space, linens and hair dryers.

About Grace Greaves

Licensened Michigan builders dream home in the north. This is our 5th home that we've built since we were married and it has all the comforts of home and our home away from home!

Grace Greaves purchased this house in 2007

Why Grace Greaves chose Grand Marais

We love the wild life, natural scenery and the ability to access miles of groomed snowmobile trails and 4 wheeling trails within minutes. This is a safe area for all to drive and ride off road vehicles.

High end amenities throughout this log home make you feel as though you are in a 5 star hotel. You’ll have the comforts of home yet be able to ‘get away from it all’ but still be connected to civilization if (and only if!) you desire. Top notch furnishing, appliances, local touches and trimmings in this home await your arrival and enjoyment. This three-story home also offers a lower level that is roomy enough for the kids to unwind and play a game of ladder ball or bean bag tic-tac-toe. This home is the most unique and upscale in the area, offering the best of the best and promising memories to last a lifetime!

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the various restaurants that are only blocks away. We also enjoy the local community and their love of the area. We enjoy being close to the town activity but also love being able to 'go to the ridge' and enjoy our family time. Grand Marais offers several restaurants, museums, a hardware store, grocery store, outfitter store (with canoe rentals), a city beach with public bathrooms, playground, volleyball net & marina, a post office, bank and several galleries & shops all awaiting your arrival and exploration. Local sites to enjoy include Coast Guard Point, Sable Falls, Grand Sable Dunes, Sable Lake, Log Slide and AuSable lighthouse that are all within the city of Grand Marais. The local event calendar is very busy during the summer and some of the activities offered are the Spash In (where water planes are allowed to land in the GM bay), the fishing tournament, the 4th of July city party, parade and fireworks display, the music festival, the Great Lake Kayak Symposium and the Labor Day Triathalon.

Winter activities include the UP 200 (the dog sled race that goes throughout the UP of Michigan) as well as snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross country skiing, etc. Grand Marais offers miles and miles of groomed snowmobile trails for the snowmobile enthusiast. The average snow fall in Grand Marais is over 300” per year!! This home allows you to snowmobile, cross country ski and snowshoe in and out right from the front door.


West Bay Diner-all homemade food breads and desserts

Dunes Saloon-pizza and on-site brewed beer and more

North Shore –On the point, good for large groups and families

Sportsman’s-Fish dinners, pasties & more

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our small church group had an awesome time in Grand Marais at this wonderful log home. It was all the comforts of home away from home. It's a beautiful area to explore and unwind. We enjoyed a campfire overlooking Lake Superior that was second to none! Thank you again! Blessings!!
