Welcome to “The Cabins on Pike Lake" in Grand Marais. Voted the Best Midwestern Small Town by USA Today, and the Coolest Small Town by Budget Travel Magazine, Grand Marais has a lot to offer. We are delighted to host you in our two luxurious and comfortable cabins on beautiful Pike Lake. Thank you for considering us for your next vacation get-away.
When you stay with us, you have 2 options:
For groups of 4 or less, the Main Cabin is perfect. For more space and privacy, you can also rent guest cabin for an additional $100/night.
For groups of 5-8: You must rent both cabins, the main cabin + the guest cabin for an additional $100/night
These traditional cabins have been meticulously updated for modern living without compromising their North Shore Arrowhead heritage. They sit just across the yard from each other yet still have ample space between them to offer privacy. The Main Cabin has two bedrooms and the Guest Cabin is a studio. Each has a contemporary kitchen and bath, a gas fireplace, and a lake-facing deck. We offer a wonderful shared space for families and multi-family vacations. We do not rent the cabins separately, so when you rent with us, the property is exclusively yours.
A third building, a renovated boathouse, serves as a screened porch, and is located a few feet from the shoreline. It is a wonderful place for solitude. Want to sit out under the stars by a fire and make S’mores? We have a beautiful spot, a slate fire pit also just a few feet from the lake.
Create lasting memories. Bring your family and friends to “The Cabins” to enjoy Pike Lake’s beauty and serenity. Swim off the dock and wade on the pebble beach in the crystal-clear shallow water – perfect for kids! Take one or both of our canoes (including our famous “Pirate Canoe”) for a tour of the amazing and secluded Pike Lake. Don’t forget your fishing poles!
The Surrounding Area
There are so many things to see and do, all year round, close by. Visit Grand Marais, the “Coolest Small Town in America” with it’s beautiful Lake Superior harbor, art galleries, and many restaurants – have breakfast at the Blue Water Café or pizza at Sven and Ole’s. Enjoy a meal at the Crooked Spoon, the Angry Trout, or the Dockside Fish Market. Listen to live music at the Gun Flint Tavern.
Travel south 25 minutes to Lutsen Mountains, “mid-America’s largest ski resort,” for skiing, Gondola rides, Alpine slides, golf, and a number of restaurants and bars (check the local listings link for live bands that play throughout the year.) For that special occasion visit the romantic and historic Lutsen Resort Dining Room. The food and lake views are, like the lake, superior!
Like to hike or mountain bike? You’ve come to the right place! Lake Superior, picturesque waterfalls and parks, hiking trailheads, and back roads are just minutes away from “The Cabins.” The fall colors are spectacular on Pike Lake and throughout this area.
In the winter, along with great downhill skiing, our location gives you immediate access to miles of groomed cross-country ski trails including the Norpine Trail Association system. A parking lot/trailhead is 2.5 miles from “The Cabins.” 57km of cross country skiing, hiking, and mountain biking trails are just minutes away! The trails wind through mature maple forests, mixed evergreens, and North Country wildlife. A number of the trails have spectacular views of Lake Superior and connect up to the Cascade River State Park Trails. The trails are well marked and maps are available online.

There is plenty to do and, if you like, there is nothing “to do” at “The Cabins.” You are most welcome and warmly invited to spend time throughout the year with us. Please know that while we love pets, we do not allow them at “The Cabins.” Follow us at
