About the Property

Great Views Of The Lighthouse And Bay!!!

Summer weekly booking schedule is FRIDAY to FRIDAY only: June 23, 2017, to September 8, 2017. All other times a two night minimum.

The Bay Watch Cabin has an awesome view to the lighthouse, West Bay and out to Lake Superior. There is a fire pit in the back yard with a grill plate that swings over so you can cook your steaks over the wood fire. There is also a park charcoal grill for your use. The Bay Watch Cabin's deck is great for relaxing and taking in the view, or for having a romantic evening dinner.

The Bay Watch Cabin is a compact 2 bedroom, 1 bath, cabin. The bedrooms are large and the cabin is well appointed for a short or long-term stay. The cabin was decorated for comfort and with water holidays in mind.

The Cabin is a very short walk to the center of town, and beach access road is about 100 yards to the west (there is also another road to the beach to the east). Bay Watch is set back one lot from the beachfront, on the water side of the road, with no houses or roads between the Bay Watch Cabin and the water to block your view, only a few trees for a wind break.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, and bedroom #2 has a bunk bed combination of a full and twin bed. So, whether you are a family of 4 or two couples this would suit you well. At Bay Watch the beds are all made up for you and the bath linen, kitchen linen and kitchen items are all onsite ready for you to use.

The Bay Watch also has two additional fold out beds and a queen futon for a small additional fee, but the cabin is only 612 square feet so use of the extra bedding will make it a tight squeeze. See the guest guide below.

The kitchen is compact with a medium size fridge and a new gas electronic range (not yet depicted in the photos), and the laundry has a stacked front loader washer and dryer for your use. The house also has a large gas heater which easily caters to the whole home.

The living room comes appointed with a flat screen television, cable television, queen futon chair, a large swivel arm chair and a retro white leather swivel chair. There are also a variety of games for adults and children to use for those times when you are indoors or TV is not your thing.

At various times each day at the Bay Watch Cabin you will hear the Catholic Church chime their lovely songs across Grand Marais. Come and take in the peaceful surrounds of Grand Marais with one awesome view.

CHANGE OVER DAY: From late June to early September weekly (7 nights) bookings from Friday to Friday. All other times a 2 night minimum with change over day open.

OPEN: Currently open from May to late October. Closed November to April.

INTERNET: No WiFi in the Bay Watch Cabin. Free WiFi internet available at various places around town, including (subject to change without notice) at the Diner a short distance away and at the Grand Marais Outfitters in town.

GUEST GUIDE:
2 renters = perfect size
4 renters = almost perfect size except you'll have to share a bathroom
5 renters = getting a little tight as 3 people will share a bedroom
6 renters = you'll need at least one additional sleeping item made up ($30 per item), and the bathroom use will be a little inconvenient, plus there will not be enough living room and dining room seats for you all
7-9 renters = additional sleeping item makeups needed (2 fold outs and 1 futon available @$30 per item), inconvenient bathroom use, and not enough seating
10 renters = can't do it

Ten things to do around Grand Marais:
1. Visit the local restaurants: The West Bay Diner (you will wait for your food, but it is good), The Sportsmans (a real U.P. feel to it), The Dunes Saloon (the local watering hole with some really good pizza), the Breakwall Bakery and Cafe (the newest restaurant in town).
2. Swim at East Bay or West Bay beaches.
3. Walk Agate Beach from the lighthouse to Sable Falls. Or walk along the road to Sable Falls west along Carlson Street and H-58, then down the side of the falls, and back to the Lake Street in town.
4. Walk the trails both east and west of Grand Marais.
5. Visit the Agate Museum and other antique and gift shops in town.
6. Thursday night is farmers' market in the town park - locals sell their homegrown and homemade goods - there are some excellent cooks living in Grand Marais.
7. See Dennis/Kim at the Grand Marais Outfitters to organize or rent a kayak, a four wheeler, or a charter boat tour/fishing expedition.
8. Visit the log slide lookout about 13 miles west of Grand Marais off H-58.
9. Visit Pictured Rocks that is about 40 minutes west of Grand Marais off H-58.
10. Use the grill on the grass area, cook your steaks, sit on your deck and enjoy your steak with a cocktail or soda while looking out at the lighthouse and water.

Directions:
FROM H-77 - Travel on h-77 toward Grand Marais, go down the hill into town, turn right on Randolph St and continue on veering to the right onto Grand Marais Avenue. Follow Grand Marais Avenue for about 500 feet, and the cabin is on the left about 100 feet after the Catholic Church.
FROM H-58: Travel into town along H-58 (turns into to Carlson Street when you enter Grand Marais. Cross H-77/Main Street and head toward the bay and then swing to the right and follow Grand Marais Avenue for about 600 feet, and the cabin is on the left about 100 feet after the Catholic Church.
