Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your beautiful cottage for the week. Our family has stayed in Grand Marais for many years. This is by far the most comfortable and welcoming place that we have experienced. It was nice to be able to walk to most place. Sitting on the deck in the evening was so calming. We hope we have the opportunity to repeat this experience some time next year.

Stones Throw Cottage with views of Grand Marais Harbor on Lake Superior

Absolutely loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here, it's a beautiful home with such a lovely view of the lake from the deck and front room. Very comfortable and cozy with a fully equipped kitchen, lovely woodwork, such a pleasure to be there! It's within close walking distance to the fun shops and restaurants in Grand Marais, yet separated just enough to give some calm and quiet to enjoy the lake. We will definitely stay here again!

It was a great location; everything in town was walkable. The view of the lake from the deck was unobstructed. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. We loved the local art that decorated the house. We would certainly love to stay again.

Fabulous Find with Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This charming house was much nicer than we expected. It's exceptionally equipped, tastefully decorated with all local art, and very clean. It is located within walking distance to everything in Grand Marais and has an amazing view of Lake Superior. It worked very well for our large group. We are sure to stay again and highly suggest it to friends and family who visit Grand Marais!

Truly a treasure!

  • 5 of 5

Charming, cozy and beyond a doubt, a wonderful place to call home for our weekend getaway! From the moment we set foot in the front door we fell in love! The cabin was very neat and clean, with endless amenities for our cooking convinces in the kitchen, as well as throughout the entire cabin! We greatly appreciate the extra mile taken to make our stay so enjoyable! The "Stones Throw" is quite literally a "Stones Throw" from all of the great shops, restaurants and of course the serene view of the bay from the cozy couch in front of the wood fire :) Also, a big thank you to Lori for your welcoming hospitality. It was like meeting a long lost friend for the first time! Truly a treasure! We are telling everyone we know to come and visit!

Thank you so very much,

Chad & Missy
