About the Property
The Real Log Cabin
Trailsyde is a vintage log cabin faithfully kept in a past era but modernized for full comfort. There are two generous bedrooms, sitting room, great-room/kitchen with fireplace, porch, and bath plus a large front deck. For the ultimate in privacy there are no nearby cabins in sight. Pebble sand beach and a dramatic rock point add to the outdoor appeal as does the quain Crow's Nest writer's retreat on the cliff overlooking Trailsyde. The grounds are natural. Most visitors enjoy Trailsyde lore as presented in a guest book or told by the owner who lives on the property and is available to assist guests. There is neither sattelite TV nor reliable cell phone service at the location.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

North East Cook County MN has an abundance of National Forest Land, State Parks, and National Park Service Monument. There is a Historic Theme Park (Old Fort William) across the border in Canada approx. 70 miles.
About the owner: The owner, Harry Drabik, has a long standing connection with the Lake Superior North Shore starting in approx 1950, continuing when his family moved there from Chicago in 1956 and following that when he came to the Grand Marais area after the U of M. Harry has been a teacher, canoe guide, and field archaeologist. He has also authored a handful of commercially published books and writes a weekly column.
Why the Owner Chose Grand Marais, MN, USA:
If you enjoy a modern condo hotel with carpeted halls, balcony, and a nearby pub then Trailsyde isn't your kind of place. Trailsyde is a step back to an earlier time when the original architect/owner built the cabin as one room and constructed much of its furniture on site. The best words for Trailsyde are tradition and character.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
For most visitors the biggest appeal is privacy of setting and the inviting deck facing Lake Superior. Of course for some the pleasure of hours searching agates on the pebble beach or evenings with the fireplace burning warmly are their special memories.
