About Charlotte McIvor

We love all the UP has to offer and we are especially smitten with the small harbor town of Grand Marais as well as the beautiful area and the unique Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Hiking the North Country trail is a favorite pastime of ours. The wildflowers are numerous and amazing, as well as the waterfalls and beautiful vistas. The dunes are huge, the lake is clear and cool.

Charlotte McIvor purchased this cottage in 2010

Clean, cozy, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Campbell Cottage was wonderful. We broke up a camping trip in the UP with four nights in Grand Marais. The setting put us in close proximity to several outdoor activities we enjoyed (hiking, enjoying the Lake Superior Coast, and visiting the Seney Wildlife Refuge). We would highly recommend this place as a get away.

Filled our needs for our two day stay.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely part of Michigan with walking distance to everything, including the beach, gas station, groceries,, camping supplies and restaurant. House was more than what we needed as we were gone all day. Either the TV didn't work or we didn't know how to use it.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you did not see that the cottage does not have cable sevice. I cannot make it more clear in the description. The television is there for the large number of DVDS's available for rainy days etc. It's a seasonal cottage at a reasonable rate and I like to keep it that way. It's called vacation! Ratings based on TV are beside the point. Thanks.

Cute little house in a quiet town

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed in Grand Marais for a weekend getaway in October. We were super excited to go kayaking at Pictured rocks while seeing the fall colors and see everything that the UP had to offer. Little did we know the winds would pick up and everything would be cancelled for the entire weekend (Just and FYI in case you are traveling in October). Regardless, we still got to see everything around the Pictured Rocks area (Sable fall is beautiful!) and even ventured out to Tahquamenon Falls. Everything was still beautiful in the wind and rain! Grand Marias proved to be a great middle spot to be able to venture out to both. The house was very clean and perfect for a laid back getaway. The owner was easy to get ahold of and had everything ready for us when we got there. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the lack of cable. It would've been nice to wake up and watch TV with breakfast or watch in the evening. There were at least movies and games.....and we had each other (ha!) so that was fun but a little TV would've been nice. Luckily the rain didn't put too much of a damper on being able to get out so we weren't at the cottage much, which is what I suppose most people do. So if you don't mind that then it's a perfect place for a great price.

Some other tips:

There is not much for food (restaurants and grocery) in the area. Not sure if it's because of the time we went or not (October). The only place for breakfast was a small diner. Food is great but takes awhile to get. If you are not in a hurry to catch a tour than it will probably be no big deal. When we were there a food truck parked down the street and we checked her out on the final morning. Fantastic! Awesome options for a great price (the donuts melt in your mouth). If she is there check her out!

Someone else mentioned no wine opener. That is very true and we are very thankful for that review. Ha! We brought our own and it was great. Maybe we missed it somewhere but just and FYI.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Campbell Cottage! We were in town for the kayak symposium and the location was perfect--right across the road from all of our activities, and short walk to the market too. The cottage was clean, cozy, and had everything we needed. Washer and dryer came in very handy, as did the clothesline out back for our wet gear. There was a gas grill in the shed that we cooked dinner on one night. The shower pressure was really good (appreciated when needed to warm up after practicing rescues in the lake). Beds were comfy. Games and dvd's also were nice for our teenager who came along. I would definitely chose this property again!

Kayaking, Fishing, Bike Riding, Canoeing, Rock Picking, Hiking, Swimming,and Exploring the area's beautiful dunes, waterfalls and the unique Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore are just some of the activities you can enjoy. Close by are the Tahquamenon Falls and the Seney Wildlife area for easy day trips. Munising offers a wonderful Pictured Rocks Lakeshore Cruise (advance reservations suggested), many waterfalls and short jaunts over to the rustic Grand Island. Don't forget to stop by the Pictured Rock's Visitor Center for lots of maps and information of the area, located a few miles west on M-58.
