About Charlie & Pam Hile

Hello!

We're Pam and Charlie Hile and we are IN LOVE with Grand Marais and the North Shore! We manage our own property so you're not dealing with a 3rd party or rental company. We personally take care of all communication and are totally invested in your stay at our "home away from home." When you call with any questions or issues, it's one of us that will answer your phone call and make sure that you have what you need.

A little bit about us... we're passionate about family, friends, the outdoors, going on wild adventures and creating meaningful memories. We love to hike, bike, cross country ski, listen to music, enjoy a good cup of coffee in the morning and a great glass of local craft beer at night. We love to watch sunrises, sunsets, the northern lights, rolling waves and wild life. We enjoy people, travel and cultures that are different from our own. We appreciate good conversation with a bit of sarcasm and quick wit thrown in for good measure. We're eager to learn and try new things. We're best friends and we've added the North Shore to the list of things that feed our souls.

Charlie & Pam Hile purchased this condo in 2015

Why Charlie & Pam Hile chose Grand Marais

Why this property? Because it's right on the shore of the largest freshwater lake in the entire world and sits just 4 miles from the charming town of Grand Marais. We love the big lake and all of its' mysterious moods! The North Shore provides us with a four season playground to do all the things we love to do! There are endless bike, hiking and ski trails with a waterfall around just about every corner. Every morning we wake up to all the colors of a majestic sunrise over the lake without even having to leave our cozy bed. And... besides all of the state parks, forests and wildlife... there's the wonderful, "Coolest Small Town in America" (voted on by the public and named by the NY Times) town of Grand Marais. Grand Marais is a friendly, quaint (yet modern) fishing village that hosts great restaurants, a new brew pub, endless venues for awesome music, a coop grocery store, the North House Folk School (where you can learn just about any skill or craft imaginable or gather as a community to dance, bake bread or sing around a campfire), a diverse art scene and all of this sits right on the shore of Lake Superior. There's a beautiful public beach for lake gazing or rock skipping with the light house on "Artist's Point" twinkling in the background.

What makes this condo unique

We chose our condo on the shore of Lake Superior first and foremost because of the stunning, panoramic views of Lake Superior! With over 26' of floor to ceiling windows, you have a view of the big lake from the living room, dining area, kitchen and bedroom. The private patio is perfect for coffee in the morning, a good book and lunch in the afternoon, and your beverage of choice at sun set. Terrace Point is a small and quiet community. The design of our condo was influenced by the works of Frank Lloyd Wright who was famous for bringing the outdoors inside and our condo does just that. Designed in a 5 sided pentagon, the Lake Superior ledge rock fireplace is the center point of the living room and dining area. The kitchen boasts of granite counter tops and beautiful cherrywood cabinets. The bedroom has a comfortable king-sized bed where you can take in the sun rise upon waking in the morning or view the moon shimmering on the lake at night right outside your window . The large bathroom has a slate, jet-powered shower with room for 2 and a large, cedar sauna to relax in. The heated floors (carpet and stone) keep you cozy no matter what the season. Terrace Point 11B is the perfect place to set down your bags and enjoy Lake Superior out your front door and all of Cooke County, the Boundary Waters and the Gunflint Trail right outside your back door.

* INVITE FAMILY OR FRIENDS to share the North Shore experience with you and rent our 2nd condo, Terrace Point 15B in addition. Terrace Point 15B is also an end unit and offers the same stunning, panoramic view and sits right on the shoreline of Lake Superior!

Great Area and Great View

  • 3 of 5

We used this for a brief winter getaway. The view is spectacular and very close to Grand Marais.

Kitchen is stocked very well. Bathroom is very adequate with sauna. Nice layout. Bedroom linens need to be updated. The sheets were extremely pilled and the pillows are down and my husband is allergic to down. There was a non down pillow but It was hard as a rock. We ended up buying a pillow in Grand Marais which would be a very cheap fix for the owner. The TV system never worked and after trying to communicate with the owners nothing got solved. Upon arrival it would be great if the booklet that contained all the unit information was on the table near the keys. We didn't know there was one and finally found it in amongst the books.

Owner's Response: Hello Susan, Thank you for sharing your feedback and we’re glad to hear that you enjoyed Terrace Point’s spectacular views. If you’ve read our reviews we usually get compliments on our high quality linens. Unfortunately we had a different cleaning schedule and the linens we usually have on the bed were mistakenly not used, our sincere apologies on the mix up. If you had let us know we certainly would have gotten a hold of our cleaning crew to replace them. In regards to the TV, after we had talked with you about how to work the remote we assumed you had figured it out since we asked you to call us back if you continued to have trouble. We wish you had reached out again, we would have been happy to help you figure it out. Did you download the HomeAway app? It has all the directions for the TV, sauna, fireplace etc. We know we can’t make everyone happy all of the time, but we care passionately about our guest’s experience and in over 90 reviews most every one of our guests have a fantastic stay and can’t wait to return to Terrace Point. We’re sorry and disappointed if that wasn’t the case for you. Kind regards, Pam & Charlie

Wonderful prairie style architecture and furnishings!

  • 5 of 5

Pam and Charlie have the condo wonderfully appointed. Great location - close to lots of outdoor activities and Grand Marais where there are some great restaurants. Stand outside in the evening for a sky exploding with stars and listen to the waves on Lake Superior roll onto the rocky shore.Our first VRBO stay and we weren't disappointed!!

Wonderful winter get-away

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Terrace Point location. It was close to town (Grand Marais) but secluded and private. A beautiful view of Lake Superior and the bay. We stay for a 3-day weekend of x-country skiing, snowshoeing, and winter hiking. The location is convenient to Cascade River State Park, Pincushion Mountain Cross-country ski trails system, George Washington Pines trail, Judge C. R. Magney State Park, and many other beautiful outdoor experiences.

The condo was warm, cozy, and inviting. Very well appointed and meticulously clean. The living/dining area was where we spent most of out time there. The great gas fireplace and Bose sound system kept us happy and content. I wish we had brought along some of our

CDs though.

The one feature we really loved was the sauna. We took advantage of it all three nights we were there. After long days of skiing, hiking, and snowshoeing, it was the perfect transition between enjoying the outdoors, and either cooking in (which we did) or going to one of the great restaurants in Grand Marais.

We love the place, and we will be back!

Owner's Response: Hello Marv, Thank you so much for your kind and generous words! We’re thrilled that you loved our condo and that you so thoroughly enjoyed all that the area has to offer. You certainly made the most of your trip and got good use of the sauna (which is so delightful after a long day out in the cold). We love the beauty of the winter season on the North Shore as well, but we hope you’ll be back again once it warms up... every season is an experience on Lake Superior! Kind regards, Pam & Charlie

Great place, owners were available by phone and email to help me out with questions, the sauna was awesome after a wicked cold day skiing. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Hello Catherine - thank you for your review. We’re so happy to hear that you enjoyed Terrace Point. Both the fireplace and the sauna come in handy during the cold winter months - but so glad to hear that despite the cold temps you still got outside to ski - good for you! Come back and stay with us again, every season is beautiful on Lake Superior.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a complimentary review Lindsey! We’re so very glad you loved Terrace Point, it’s a cozy retreat during the cold winter months - especially when you don’t have to leave the condo (or the fireplace) to watch the mysterious moods of Lake Superior in all her glory! Please do come back and see us again, we’d love to have you!
