Overview

Photos and Description of the Grand Marais vacation cabin rental

Cozy Cabin ideally for two, 1 BR, Airtub for 2, Very Private.

The Writer's Cabin is a quaint, long established residence hidden in the oldest part of town. It has been fully restored and modernized to provide all the creature comforts and yet remain historic in nature. Set amidst lush landscaping, the cabin is only steps from the harbor. All amenities are provided including an new enameled cast iron gas fireplace, a new therapeutic air tub for two, a new top of the line queen bed, a well equipped modern kitchen, satellite TV with flat screen and theatre surround, an antique secretary writing desk, high speed wireless internet, and various objects of interest representative of famous writers and local writers including locally written books and Ernest Hemmingway's favorite model of typewriter.

With nine windows and one skylight, there is great natural light throughout the little cabin.

Seagulls and fog greet you when you rise. The grounds of the property are planted with a variety of native and boreal flowering plants, flowering shrubs and fruit trees. It is a garden like setting with various perennial, annual, and produce plantings.

The outdoor space has a balanced blend of sun and shade, functionality and whimsicality.This is a space intended as an exclusive retreat from the rigors of small town life. It is designed so that you can be as private as your vacation requires. Dense schrubs and tall fences ensure your own seclusion.

Visitors are encouraged to tour the property and flag down the owners if you see them. Observe the goings on in the gardens and the adjacent Boathouse! The Boathouse is an impressive timberframe structure that was built by the current owner as their home and as a workshop for building and restoring boats and for teaching classes and other public and private events. Stop in and see what's going on, maybe you will be recruited in to service to help on whatever project is under way! The owner is currenly building an Alaskan skiff and loves to talk about it.

Grand Marais is a small harbor town with the great North Woods to it's back and Lake Superior in front. It has an artistic culture that exceeds it's small size including Minnesota's longest running art colony, art galleries, a strong local music scene, North House Folk School, and many local residents who are artists of different pursuits. There is a great interest in outdoor activities including all forms of skiing, biking, hiking, snowmobiling, sailing, boating, fishing, birding, canoing, kayaking, dining and general carousing. We are the last bastian of civilization before The Boundary Waters Canoe Area wilderness and the last town of significance before Canada. We have a rich history of the Ojibwe, then Scandanavian fisherman, logging, resort lifestyles, and now tourism. There is a genuine small town and diverse school system and vibrant community of year round residents- many going back generations. There is no place quite like this.
