Artist's Loft, with its incomparable view of the Harbor, Sailboats, Lighthouse and Coast Guard Station, is the only private home rental in Downtown Grand Marais on the Harbor. The view is what it is all about!

Artist's Loft is right in the heart of downtown Grand Marais on beautiful Harbor Park. It is a great home-base for enjoying the gentle activity of the Village or easily getting away for day trips to the BWCA. Drive up the Gunflint Trail for day adventures and hikes, but stay at the Artist Loft to experience all that downtown has to offer...just footsteps out the front door.

Artist's Loft has two bedrooms and one bathroom with a claw foot tub and a view of the Harbor. The Artist Loft is an upper unit with beautiful views & there is also a lower unit (vrbo 661724) where guests also occasionally stay. Both units have private, separate & secure entrances. Ask about renting both units for larger groups. Both units joined together can sleep 10!!

Even though Artist's Loft is right downtown on the harbor front, it is graced with a gorgeous secluded quiet off street wildflower garden with decks and lounging chairs and tables to relax in the sun or have a intimate outside breakfast lunch or dinner. Cook in with our fully equipped kitchen or get it to go, semi-catered from a choice of several fabulous restaurants. Your own private campfires in the backyard at night. You can even book & rent the backyard for private events, wedding receptions, or any other intimate get-togethers.

In the evening, step right next door to the Gunflint Tavern and enjoy a craft beer at their newly opened brewpub or Mojito in the 'Ravens Nest' lake-view deck and then listen to world class music in the early evening. The music at 'The Tavern' ranges from gentle Gypsy Jazz to Folk and Folk Rock for the occasional night of dancing. Also, the all-new Voyageur Brewing's taproom just opened and is a short 2 block walk! Keep in mind you are "downtown" Grand Marais, so there is the activity of being around the shopping, the activity of the tourists, and a little bit of the nightlife. But that's part of the fun. Fortunately that all ends pretty early in Grand Marais as everything pretty much shuts down around 10:00 or 11:00 pm.

Wake with the gulls in the morning sun and enjoy the quiet solitude of downtown as it gently comes to life. Walk to The Pie Place, The Crooked Spoon Restaurant, Angry Trout Cafe, Hughies Taco's, The Dockside Fish Market, the Gunflint Tavern, Voyageur Brewing, breakfast at the Blue Water Cafe and Donuts and World's Best Donuts!! All within 1-2 blocks! You have it all at Artists Loft. Oh, and don't forget that Legendary Sven and Ole's Pizza is right up the street.

The thing to remember about Artist's Loft is that every day is a beautiful magical day whether it is sunny and warm or stormy and wild; all year round nature's magic unfolds right in front of you over the greatest of lakes, Lake Superior.

A little History about Artist's Loft:

It was built in the early 1900s by Chet Boisvert. Chet was the village barber and the shop was equipped with showers for the lumberjacks to come in from the woods for a hot shower. He was also an avid Democrat and held party meetings at the Loft on Main Street. In the guest book it was found that his grandchildren had stayed here when our friend Stephen, the previous owner, first opened Artists Loft. They left an entry in the guestbook telling of heartwarming memories such as...

- ' The last time I slept in this bedroom was 43 years ago. I can still remember hearing my people cheering at 6 am when they announced the Victory of Harry Truman over Dewey in 1948!'

- 'I remember watching, from the front windows, pulp boats loading logs from the thousands of logs floating in the harbor'

You can still feel those memories at Artist's Loft as you gaze out the windows and still see fishing boats and sailboats bobbing in the breezes.

Come share the Magic!
