The perfect little get away a great distance from town. Easily able to walk everywhere we needed. Modern houses with a great view of the harbor. Owners were wonderful to work with and available for questions throughout our stay.

Everything was beautiful and the place is close to downtown. The notebook with information about the town and the board games were a nice touch. Loved all the windows and the balcony. Todd and Susan are very friendly!

This home was not quite ready for visitors. It was new construction and the timeline was too far behind. Our hosts were kind and very responsive to the issues we had. Once it is complete it will be the absolute perfect place to stay in Grand Marais. Walkable to everything, gr…

Response from Todd:
Jessica and Dave and Teddie and Ursa the dog were fantastic and tolerant guests. I say tolerant because we made a series of mistakes that did not reflect well on us and they soldered on through. We had an electronic calendar error that caused us to not realize they were coming. And although the cabin had been professionally cleaned, we had left out some pots and pans and other things that we were working on. We also have some new systems in place that even we don't fully understand yet like the motion sensor smoke detectors (which Dave helped us reprogram) and an on demand hot water system with modern faucets that are easily confused. These all work fine now. Sadly, the weather was rainy the whole time, it was still a constructions zone, and little Teddie got sick on a hike so eventually they left for home. We comped their entire stay and are thankful for their patience, and for helping us beta test the home. As owners we do not get to see a guests review until after we have written ours. So it is a testament to them if they find it in their hearts to give us a good review. The buildings are beautiful, the grounds are still under construction, and the owners (us) are still working out some procedural glitches. But we are better at it now thanks to Jessica and Dave and Teddie and Ursa. Thanks guys, hope you come see us again.
