After a hectic end of the school year, my husband and I really appreciated the chance for a peaceful retreat with a change of scenery. We did a couple of nearby hikes and played a few games at the house. The location worked great for us and we had everything we needed. Thank you!
It was good
Exactly what we needed!!
We had a fantastic time during our short stay at the Writers Cabin. The owners were always super quick to respond to any inquiries we had during our stay.
While the cabin is small, we had everything we needed and there was lots of storage space to put our things and it never felt over crowded. The bathtub was HUGE - would recommend bringing a bath bomb and a nice book to relax after a long day of exploring the north shore!
It’s walking distance to the harbor and downtown and we enjoyed walking around the area. Lots of privacy made us feel alone amidst the neighborhood. And the property is GORGEOUS and was so fun to walk around and explore.
Can’t wait to book another trip here again.
Thank you both for everything!
Would stay here again!
Super cute cabin to stay in! Perfect for us and our dogs! The owners are super nice and the location is really close to the harbor. Grand Marias is such a cute town to stay in and not a super far distance from some hikes. Would definitely stay here again!
Cooking Classes at NHFS
Great location for classes at NHFS!
A stone's throw from the harbor. Very private. Walking distance to everything.

Why Todd and Susan Miller chose Grand Marais
This is a special property that occupies a unique nitche in the local rental market. The location is incredibly convenient to everything. Once you have arrived you can toss your car keys in the lake and walk to wherever you need to go. This is a great location for the summer festivals or for winter hibernating. In Summer, music and art seem to permeate the town and strains of music can be heard most times of the day and in to the evening. Artists are plying their wares in nearly every shop. There is often something interesting going on at the Boathouse next door, and North House Folk School is less than a block away. On stormy nights the breaking waves send a deep rumble through the bedrock. Many mornings you wake to seagulls and fog. We recently had a fox in the yard and a beaver lumbered through on his way to somewere important to beavers. In winter there are myriad trails to explore on ski or snowshoe, romantic dining opportunites, live music, shopping, snomobiling, or just being cozy by the fire. We chose this location because it is very special. We are lifelong Miinnesotans and have been passing through Grand Marais our whole lives. We wanted a home on the North Shore, and we believe that Grand Marais is the jewel of the North Shore. Within Grand Marais we wanted to be close to the action and the water. Although this is a very small town, it has big shoulders when it comes to culture and beauty. We belive our specific location is magical because the big lake cools us in summer and warms us in winter. That effect fades away only a couple blocks up the hill. We consider ourselves blessed.
What makes this Cabin unique
Covid-19 requirements. All guests must agree. We are happy to accept your reservation. We have adopted a protocol that protects both you and our cleaners from COVID-19. And most importantly, we insist that you join us in protecting our aging resident population in Grand Marais. We have a disproportionately older population of elderly here and our community is very firm about refusing guests who do not take the need for social distancing as seriously as everyone here does. While in Grand Maris you MUST maintain 6 feet of distance at all times with anyone outside of your family group. If you are unable to do so you must take action to resolve the situation. Some hiking trails and sidewalks can be tight and if you can't maintain 6' feet of distance please sort it out before it is a problem. We strongly recommend wearing masks in public. Please respect our sensitivities up here. At the time of writing this we have NO cases of Covid-19 in our county. Our simple clinic can not handle any cases of Covid, we have no ventilators and no ICU. Your actions will help ensure that we maintain our good health and protect our vulnerable population. If guests are flaunting our requirements we will likely be shut down by area authorities or choose to shut down ourselves. So please be excellent ambassadors for all visitors to Grand Marais. 1) Are any in your group experiencing any signs of illness such as coughing, aches, or fever? We can not accept any guests with these symptoms. Please respond that all are healthy. 2) If any in your group have been diagnosed with Covid-19 or suspect that you may have had undiagnosed Covid -19 in the last two weeks we can not host you. Please cancel this reservation request. 3) Has everyone in your group been effectively socially isolating for the previous 3 weeks prior to your arrival in our community? If not, please cancel this reservation request due to reasons stated above. If you have been doing any traveling prior to coming here, please c
