Photos and Description of the Grand Marais vacation bungalow rental

One bedroom, One bath, 3 night minimum, 3 person maximum

Casa Whimsey is just ten minutes from Grand Marais, nestled into the woodsy ridgeline, at the end of a residential neighborhood. The front of the house overlooks bountiful flower gardens, while the bedroom and screen porch reveal an elaborate view of the boreal forest and bog: headwaters of Rosebush Creek and home to moose, bear, ravens, bald eagles, wolves, pine martens, and chipmunks. Zillions of peepers serenade May-June.

Located just 3-1/2 miles from the artsy, hip town of Grand Marais, Casa Whimsey has easy access to everything. Hiking trails and lakes and streams for fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and boating abound in all directions. From Whimsey a person can easily find themselves immersed in a pristine wilderness setting, and in a short time be listening to live music at a local pub, enthralled in a world class art gallery, strolling through one of the many unique gift shops, or dining in one of Grand Marais' excellent restaurants.

Some things you should know:

Case Whimsey is located at the end of a residential neighborhood. It is generally peaceful and very private, with a panoramic view of gardens and forest. The "people neighbors" will leave you alone, but you may hear mowers or kids playing. The "furred neighbors" include coyote, timber wolf, moose, fox, and bear. Although you'd have to be really lucky to see any of these wild guys, you have a good chance of hearing the yip of coyotes.
