About Kristine Tate
I am originally from the Upper Penninsula and left the area in 1983. I spent the last 20+ years in South Florida as a Flight Attendant and Business Owner. I recently relocated back to the Munising area to allow my children to experience wonderful Midwest living and the beautiful outdoors.
Kristine Tate purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Kristine Tate chose Grand Marais
I have always loved Grand Marais and felt a special attachment to the area many years ago. There is just something about being here that is really good for the soul! I purchased this home after seeing it while on the garden tour through Grand Marais. It is a very old home and needed quite a bit of attention. My friends and family thought I had lost my mind and tried to persuade me otherwise. There is such a great feeling inside this home. I knew there had to be alot of happy memories created and so much history. While I worked on the home, several local people stopped to visit and share those stories with me. Just as I had expected, they were amazing stories about great families and the wonderful lives that were lived on the corner of Carlson.
What makes this Cottage unique
The location is just perfect. Being a few blocks from the water makes for great summer nights by the bonfire. It's much warmer inland, without the breeze, as summer temps in Grand Marais are generally on the cooler side. While in Grand Marais, I walk and bike everywhere I need to be. I also enjoy the evenings sitting on the porch and visiting with locals and tourists as they stroll the neighborhoods, dog walk, and bike. Car watching on H-58 is also entertaining as many exotic car clubs make the trip from Munising to Grand Marais daily. For the winter enthusiast, we have plenty of parking for trucks and trailers.

Charming cottage in charming small town
Cottage is perfectly situated for day trips to pictured rocks, soo locks, whitefish point, Tahquamenon falls. Grand Marais is charming and very walkable to all sights from cottage. Cottage was clean and had all the amenities needed for an enjoyable stay.
Great location and close to everything!
The house was great. We loved how it was within walking distance to town and the lake. We took the bikes out a few times which was lovely. The amenities were not lacking, the house was clean and spacious enough for our party, and we’re already planning our next stay! Thanks so much for opening your home to us!!
Great cottage with all the amenities
Our family of 4 stayed here for 3 nights in late July. The cottage was perfect for our needs, with plenty of room and stocked with everything we could need like dishes, games, movies, and bikes. The cottage is a short walk or bike ride into town and to the beach and is perfectly situated for day trips to Pictured Rocks and Tahquamenon Falls.
