Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

A 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom House With a Bunk House for 4 More. Beautiful Lake Views

The Awazo Cottage sits on 5 acres with 300 feet of private shoreline on Devil Track Lake. It is a wonderful place to come and relax and enjoy everything that the Northwoods has to offer. It offers the best of both worlds in that it is very private and on a lake, but is only a 12-15 minute drive from downtown Grand Marais!

A dock with benches allows you to sit down on the lake and take in all of the beautiful sunsets that this location provides, and there are a ton. In addition there is a platform dock in a protected cove which would make a great place to dock a boat. There is a boat launch conveniently located on the North side of lake if you have a boat you can bring.

In the main house there are 2 bedrooms that sleep four; the master has a queen bed and the guest room has a double. There are also 2 gorgeous bathrooms that are both newly remodled; clean and pristine. *Note: we sleep a MAX of 8 people. No more.

Down the path about 50 feet from the main house is the bunk house or "Little Devil" as we call it :) It has a beautiful, hand drawn pine bunk bed and a queen size sleep sofa, sleeping four in total. Little Devil is literally steps from the lake and is a great place for viewing the Northern Lights at night!

There is a large fire pit in the front yard down near the lake and it is just perfect for nighttime bonfires. Don't forget the Smores fixins!

A big bonus for those of you who enjoy fishing is that Devil Track Lake is known as a great fishing lake. Walleye, Northern, Small Mouth Bass, and Whitefish, often easy to catch by casting right off the dock!

About Danielle

From the Owner, Robb: "I'm a Minnesota native from the Twin Cities who was exposed to the North Shore at a very young age. I always knew I would live here some day and that dream has come true. I live here now full time and will never really leave. On that note I have a warning to all who might rent here.....once you spend some time here, you're going to find it very hard to leave!"

"My daughter Danielle and son-in-law Carl live down in Lutsen with my beautiful granddaughter, Ella. Danielle manages the rental for me so that I can try Summer and the beginning of retirement :) "

Danielle purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Danielle chose Grand Marais

This property was perfect, 300ft of private lake shore well off the road (almost a 1/4 of a mile) yet only 8 miles from town.

What makes this cottage unique

If you like beautiful sunsets this is the place. Located on the south shore, we have an unobstructed view to the North and to the West, which also makes it ideal for viewing the Northern Lights.

The Key to this property for me is the views from the family room - virtually a 180 Degree view of lake. Fantastic!

It was very nice! View was great. Peaceful. Good place for home base!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin worked out great for us. Nice big table for meals and games. Fire pit and grill came in handy. We didn't use the extra bunkhouse but it looked handy for a bigger family. We brought our own camping lantern and chairs for sitting around campfire. Glad we did. Looking at stars from the dock first night was wonderful. Shower in master bedroom was great! View from living room was awesome! Very pleasant place!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 2 Golden Retrievers so enjoyed our time at Awazzo. We needed relaxation and this is the place to go to relax. The grounds are beautiful as are the views of the lake and the fantastic sunsets. The cabin is really comfortable and has everything you need . Love the openness to the lake with all those windows. A wonderful place to come!!!

Great place to get away!

This property was wonderful - great feeling of seclusion, yet convenient to Grand Marais.

Also beautiful view, fantastic windows facing the lake and trees, well-appointed living spaces - and great bathrooms!

Gorgeous property on the lake, roomy cabin and nice finishes!

  • 3 of 5

Roomy cabin to accommodate many people, gorgeous private property, nice finishes inside the cabin. Fortunate to have a boat available for use, although we didn't catch any fish. Great natural light in the cabin during the day, the indoor lighting and heat source were a bit inconsistent. Well appointed kitchen although the dishwasher was broken during our stay. Beautiful outdoor space to view the spectacular sunsets over the lake!

Great Setting!

  • 5 of 5

7 of us stayed here for a week in August. The setting is beautiful, as there are some small trees between the cabin and the lake, providing some privacy, with a level walk down to the lake. The wood stove was nice on a couple of cool, rainy days, and we also had a fire outside. Thanks for the supply of good fire wood.

Little devil was great for our teenage girls. The cabin was clean! And the linens, beds and extra touches were greatly appreciated! We had a large fishing boat, which was a little tricky getting into the dock, but worth it. The lake is beautiful and not very busy! We even caught enough fish for 2 fish fries. Getting into the Boundary waters from here is easy, as my husband and son went in for a 2 night trip.

Kitchen is well equipped, and we even baked a pie! This cabin was perfect for us and the owners are blessed to have it!
