The Owner purchased this cottage in 2004

Grand Marais is a wonderful community. Not only the people, but the wonderful geography, and especially the wonderful and marvelous Lake Superior

I enjoy being able to look out and see the changing 'moods' of Lake Superior, the diversity of wild life ie: deer, lynx, birds, wolf. Amazing wildlife, wonderful state parks, wonderful hiking trail right out my back door

My wife and I stayed in the cottage and slept the best sleep in years! In the evenings we would get the little stove going and sit quietly reading, enjoying a glass of wine. During the daytime we would hike, see all the local sites and of course the lake. Our hostesses couldnt have been more kind or thoughtful. We even took a boundary water day trip via them (my first) and really enjoyed the beauty and commaradarie. Clean comfy, earth friendly, and we wish we could live in the cottage full time. Ps I cant remeber if we were there end of sept or oct. : ) Lovely, lovely, lovely.

Relaxing Spot and Responsive Hosts on the North Shore!

My husband and I went up north to Windcradle for his birthday to do some hiking, yet have the security from the elements that camping doesn't bring. Although we were a little surprised with how close the guest house was to the house of the hosts, and that the bath and shower are actually in their home, we were very pleased with the amount of privacy we had. (though, there is an outdoor shower). We loved fires along the shore at night, paddling and swimming in the lake, and reading -- their library was perfect when we ran out of books of our own to read! Mini-fridge, coffeemaker, burner, etc, makes it a home-away-from-home so you don't have to go out to eat for a hot meal. Great location to Eagle Mountain, BWCA, state parks, etc. Our hosts were so accommodating -- very helping and responsive to any requests we had. We booked this before the yurt was built, and honestly we would have preferred its privacy over the amenities the guesthouse brings. I believe the guest house would be well suited for the older travelers, or the less-rugged typed and the yurt would be a great spot for younger hikers not minding showering outdoors and water brought in. Loved the kitty and doggies!

A cozy retreat

We just returned from 3 nights at Wind Cradle and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Everything was just as described in the description and as seen in the pictures posted here. We were welcomed very warmly by our hosts (and the dog!) and felt very much at home. The cabin was very cozy, clean, and well situated.

We spent a lot of time on the beach and liked that they had adirondack chairs. Our perfect evening "in" was Sven and Ole's pizza, beer and late night star and moon gazing. We'd also recommend a midnight sauna and skinny dip, especially when the moon is shining bright!

Overall, highly recommended!

My wife and I just spent the most relaxing winter vacation we’ve ever experienced in Mary Ellen and Suzanne’s guest house. We left feeling completely rejuvenated, which, I believe, is the whole point for taking time off, unless you’re doing it for a wedding or funeral. If taking long walks on the beach and in the woods with camera in hand appeals to you, stay here. If your idea of fun is sitting in a comfortable chair, reading your favorite author, this is for you. If you want a hotel room, fully-equipped house or a bed-and-breakfast, though, you’ll need to go elsewhere. You’ll also pay at least twice as much. The cabin has excellent lighting and is very well set up for reading or writing. Bookshelves are used as walls between the main living area and the bedroom – a very nice touch. Microwave, hot and cold water supply, coffee pot, dorm fridge, and toaster are all located together next to shelves full of towels, plates, and utensils. The bathroom has a composting toilet and separate water supply for the sink. Overall, the entire space is decorated very well. A picture window gazes onto Lake Superior. Your hosts are genuinely friendly and always helpful. If you have dishes (we heated up pre-made meals in a crock pot we brought along) they will wash them for you. They are also very happy to recommend any number of area restaurants if you are interested in eating out. Access to Lake Superior is across the highway; a hiking trail enters the forest directly behind the house. State parks and waysides are nearby, as is the city of Grand Marais. Wildlife is abundant. After your hike, take a shower or Jacuzzi next door. Back in the cabin, tune into WTIP, the local independent radio station, news, weather and good music. Take a nap on the sofa or fall asleep reading a book next to the fire. That’s what we did, and we’re ready to go back for more.
