The Boat House is a beautiful home that was completely renovated a few years ago. Located on the eastern edge of Pictured Rocks, Grand Marais a small town with a lot of charm. The Boat House is not your typical vacation cottage. It is fully furnished with all the modern amenities of a high end home. The master bed room (off the loft) has a king size bed and offers views of both Lake Superior and Grand Marais Bay. On the main floor are 2 nice size bedrooms. One has a queen size bed and a slider to the deck facing the water. The other bedroom has 2 full size beds. The home has one bathroom with a large custom tiled shower. The hot water system is "on demand" so you never run out of hot water. The great room offers a dinning table with seating for 8.

Peaceful and relaxing
Great house! Cute town! Beautiful views from the house. Swimmable beach in town (5 min drive), or 5 min walk. Owner was very helpful! Loved it!
A real gem
The Boat House was wonderful! We stayed with our 4 kids and it was the perfect amount of sleeping space for all of us. The kitchen had all the basic cooking gear, the towels were fluffy and plentiful, the endless hot water was appreciated as there are 6 of us who need to shower in a row. We had some issues with one of our special needs children and Renee was very understanding and accommodating.
One thing I will mention is that the sandy beach has been filled with large boulders - I imagine to prevent erosion - it was not an issue for us, my kids had a blast climbing all over them, but just something to be aware of. There was a sandy part in front of the neighbor's house and they were fine with us using that, and of course miles of sandy beach just across the street on Lake Superior :)
Grand Marais is a magical little town, everyone we encountered there was friendly and caring. Make sure to check out the Shack and the food truck for breakfasts, the Diner for lunches (the owner is an author and you can pick up her books there as well) and the Brewing Company for dinners, drinks and sometimes even live music.
We loved staying in GM, I felt we were close enough to all the Pictured Rocks activities (we did two boat tours and I did a kayak tour, we also hiked a few waterfalls and the Log Slide dunes) while still getting the true vibe of a Lake Superior small town. The Boat House had all the amenities of a house and all the charm of an Up North cabin. Highly recommend :)
The home was quite charming. Perfect for a family get away.
Our family had a great time staying at the boathouse. We enjoyed the lovely home and quiet beach. Everything we needed was at there. We were able to see many of the areas natural wonders and come back to a home cooked meal. Thanks for having us!
Very nice cabin. Had every amenity one would need. However, I am very disappointed with the service. Bad customer communication, false accusations, and excess fees. Diameter of toilet did help the case.
Beautiful home away from home.
Such a beautiful, homey, comfortable place to stay and so close to Pictured Rock National Lakeshore! The view from this beach home is idyllic. We had everything we needed and the food in town was good and conveniently close. Thank you for sharing your little piece of UP heaven with us!
Perfect place to stay while in that part of the UP. Beautiful area and so much to see.
We were off season so we did not do much outside at the cabin but it sure was a gorgeous view. The cabin is well stocked so that basic cooking could be done. Communication was good and the codes for the outdoor lock and Wifi worked perfectly . Cabin is spacious and comfortable.
