About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Stille Havet. It sounds like what it is... a 'still haven,' a quiet rest.

Located on a private stretch of Lake Superior's rocky North Shore, Stille Havet offers an expansive view of the world's largest freshwater lake.

Reservations are only taken within 12 months of current date.

Watch the sunrise in the morning and the sunset in the evening over the Sawtooth Mountains while relaxing 'surfside' on a spacious walkout deck. Surprisingly, this gorgeous hideaway is less than three miles from downtown Grand Marais, Minnesota.

You will be challenged to find a more beautiful setting. We invite you to take a look.

Four Days of Peace

  • 5 of 5

Our group of ten, ages fifty-three to eighty-eight, just spent four peaceful days at Stille Havet. Some of us read a book in a chair with a lake view, while others hiked Honeymoon Bluff. On a rainy day, we visited Clearwater Lodge (built in 1926) and Chik-Wauk Museum. On our way back "home" we saw a bull moose in a swamp on the west side of the Gunflint Trail! We did our share of boosting the local economy by shopping at nearly every store in Grand Marais, including the World's Best Donut Shop. A three-mile walk along paved County Road 87 north of G.M. provided mud-free exercise on a drizzly day. Thank you, Stille Havet!

Beautiful, Spacious, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Stille Havet. We had three families and the house had more than enough space to hold us all easily. The views are spectacular. I loved the personal touches the owners kept in the house, making it feel like a real home. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen well appointed and the house was sparkling clean. Aaron the site manager came by this morning to shovel our walk, a kind gesture. The driveway was plowed before we had to leave as well. Listening to the waves crash on the shore as you fall asleep while looking at the stars is something I hope to repeat for years to come!

Amazing sunrises and sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful week over the Thanksgiving holiday at Stille Havet. The house is beautiful and well appointed and is amazingly close to the water. Additionally, it's unique positioning allowed us to witness some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets we've seen on Lake Superior! Tim made sure everything about our visit was copacetic and was a pleasure to work with. We'll definitely be returning next Thanksgiving and hope to be able to visit in warmer weather as well to enjoy that beautiful deck!

Breathtaking Scenery

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves this quiet, breathtaking retreat on the shore of Lake Superior. It's become an annual gathering place for our extended family. The kitchen is large and well-appointed; almost every bedroom offers a panoramic view of the lake. The deck is fantastic -- our group happily would have spent most of our time enjoying the water and waves, except for the nearby state parks, Superior hiking trail and attractions in Grand Marais to explore!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great week long stay. We had multiple ages and young children and everyone enjoyed the views, the spacious home, and the parents were very thankful for such a child friendly home. Tim was always available and made sure our stay went well. We will definitely return to this home the next time we are in the area.

Relax and listen to the waves

  • 5 of 5

We had a group from 2 yrs to 73 yrs. Everyone had a great time hiking, biking, shopping and wave watching. The house was big enough we could eat meals together and visit in the evenings but also have space for naps and quiet time while others were still up. I only wish we'd had longer!
