About the Property
Bedroom With 1/2 Bath, Sleeping Loft And Two Sleeper Sofa's In The Living Area.
Open May - November this is a wilderness cabin...the beaver, eagles, mink, moose, and the silence. We are surrounded by state forest all around and our one neighbor is rarely heard from for seen at all. The small river is accessible right out your front door, and kids like to splash, catch and net things!
But so many things to do beckon beyond the cabin property it's almost overwhelming. The Lake Superior Hiking Trail (which runs from Duluth to Canada) is very nearby. Devils Track Lake, a rather large lake has good fishing and swimming is down the road a couple of miles. The galleries, food and music in 'town' are extraordinary. Grand Marais really has become quite a hub for artists of all types. The North House Folk School is a one of a kind craftshop with adult classes and the Gunflint Tavern features local and national talent in a funky intimate atmosphere.
Almost half of the people who stay at our cabin are repeat visitors. When you read our guestbook you can see the fun (and quiet relaxation) unfold for so many, rain or shine.

Grand Marais has become a well-traveled art & music village with several very decent restaurants. There is such a diversity of things to do now.A couple of miles out county #8 you run into Devil Track Lake which is quite large and has a resort, lots of good fishing and also swimming at the public boat ramp.
Year Purchased: 1964
About the owner: We inherited this one of a kind bungalow from my parents some years ago and has proved to be very popular spot indeed! The cabin is very cozy in any weather, and is filled with local and family memorabilia. Chris' father was a famous jazz pianist, hence the piano. We ourselves stay in the cabin each summer and fall and keep an eye on details that need attention or that would make renter stay a little more comfortable. By reading our guestbook over the years, it is only too obvious that everyone is enjoying themselves!
Why the Owner Chose Grand Marais, MN, USA:
Many people visit us to specifically enjoy the piano which we keep relatively in tune, as Chris is also a pianist and often performs in town. I simply must mention our guestbook because it is so full of the many things families found to do, in great detail. What animals they bumped into, which videos they watched. It is a little treasure trove, so please do page through. The pond is really just a woodland creek to be enjoyed for it's own sake, gurgling...but kids do get in, canoe or no. It can be hot in high summer and a little wading can go a long ways. We usually keep a little net under the cabin near the water there for frogs and what have you!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We are close to town and yet well off the road and tucked into the forest on all sides. The cabin itself is a gem and the glass wall facing south makes for a beautiful bright view. Large grassy (mowed) area in front with the firepit is nice to lounge on right up to the Little Devil Track river. The fishing (and swimming) here is for kids, but there are unlimited places a few miles away for various types of adult fishing. Beaver, Great Blue Heron, Kingfisher, mink and moose move up and down the river at dusk. We have a complete circle turnaround for parking. The woodstove is modern and efficient with ample split birch firewood, and small European wall heat panels heat the rooms. The loft has an inflatable (automatic) full mattress although many people, especially the kids prefer sleeping bags. All linens are provided though. You can see the water from our Artesian well flowing just outside the window, ice cold and pure.
