Why Linda Bauer chose Grand Marais
There is only one Lake Superior the largest freshwater lake in the world. As I drive to Grand Marais along the historic and scenic Highway 61 I am inspired by its panoramic views, coastal bluffs and craggy shores. I came up as a teenager and well into my 30's to go fishing with my step dad and fell in love with the area. When this property became available I grabbed it. The local people who come to visit can't believe we're within the city limits of Grand Marais. It feels like we're in the country. It really is 'nestled' in the woods.
What makes this House unique
So many of our guests at the sister to this house (McFarland House, see listing #355006) have identified 'location' as being one of the things they like best about the property. It is close enough to town that you can walk or bike into Grand Marais, yet far enough away that you feel like you live out of town. My step dad built this house - we designed it together, placing the windows to take advantage of the north light and views into the woods; putting a window seat into the master bedroom because I've always liked those. And the loft - I've always like spaces like those: closely tucked into the wood ceiling overlooking the great room to one side and the lake to the other. I decided on paint color and finishing touches and I especially love the quality of the light in the house. I feel I'll never get tired of watching the light and how it changes the house from dawn to dusk.

The North Shore, a bit of heaven
We had a great time and the cabin was perfectly located to enjoy all that the north shore offers. Linda was great to work with and the cabin was warm and cozy. A wonderful place to relax
Delightful and convenient
The property is full of light and space with an excellent kitchen, roomy bathroom and shower, comfortable bed, and everything one would need. It's also really close to Grand Marais which is convenient. It's quiet and private as well. An excellent place to stay!
Great place to stay. Very clean and great location!!
Great value, beautiful home!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
House was close enough for us to walk downtown yet quiet enough and far enough away from the commotion.
Grand Marais Respite
This is a very nice property that is maintained and managed with love and thought. 'The house is full of light, thanks to its many windows and high ceilings, and I enjoyed looking out on the birch trees from many vantage points. The house is built with quality materials, and the layout maximizes its space. The kitchen is great, too. Linda is friendly, responsive and obviously committed to making her guests' time enjoyable. There aren't many roads through Grand Marais, but the house sits back from the highway and is surrounded with trees, providing seclusion and privacy. Grand Marais is the perfect base for so many outdoor activities, and this is a truly a lovely place to stay!
Great Winter Destination!
A great Winter escape and as nice as expected. The manager is helpful and responsive. I recommend it for a group of friends or a family trip. It will be definitely on the list for our next boundary water area outing.
The North Shore of Lake Superior is noted for both modest and spectacular waterfalls, lake vistas and cobble beaches. The Superior Hiking Trail is within easy access with many spur trails to places of unique natural beauty. The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) is 20 minutes away with an abundance of outfitters to set you up for a day trip or a week's camping experience. Horeseback riding is available close to town, as is Putt-Putt Golf, a recreation park with swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi. The city of Grand Marais (pop. 1500) is a quaint harbor town. Summer pleasures include relaxing or strolling on the cobble beach, rock hunting (agates), guided fishing (coho salmon, herring and lake trout), day or evening trips aboard the Hjordis (a 2 masted schooner), sailing, kayaking, canoeing and by evening live music under the stars. Grand Marais hosts a number of summer festivals and is 35 miles from the Grand Portage Indian Reservation and the Canadian border. Museums and interpretive centers dot the shoreline. Spring is a great time to come up and see the many waterfalls. Winter visitors can enjoy easy access to cross country and downhill ski opportunities, snowmobile trails and snowshoeing. The Grand Marais Art Colony offers year-round programming ranging from various arts festivals, fused glass, pottery as well as the traditional painting and drawing classes. The North House Folk School hosts both a winter and summer solstice festival, UnPlugged Music Event and classes ranging from boat building to knitted silver jewelry. There's lots to see and do all year round, and each season has its own special allure.
