Home away from home

Nice place, great location. Owners are very accommodating and pay attention to all the details to ensure this is a very comfortable home away from home experience, which it was. We recommend it and look forward to a return visit soon.

Another wonderful stay at Grand Marais Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Grand Marais Getaway is great! My sister and I have stayed several times, this was our first winter trip and it was great. Matt and Nancy always have the place at perfection and no problems at all with access and snow removal in winter. It is a comfortable place, very clean, great amenities and location. We will be back.
