Grand Marais Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

Northern Enlightenment is gently placed on five acres of wilderness at the Northeastern point of Pike Lake, the third clearest lake in Minnesota I’m told. Just 15 minutes from the magnificent little town of Grand Marais, you have all the comforts of home while nestled comfortably in peaceful seclusion.

This cabin, built in 2004, is full of charm and wonder. The first floor has a great bedroom with one queen size bed. On the second floor you’ll find a large bedroom with another queen size bed and a daybed that holds 2 twin mattresses, one can be pulled down onto the floor for an extra sleeping place. That bedroom also provides a quite mediation/reading library. The front bedroom on the second floor holds a wonder for the eyes, it’s all windows and a deck that look out onto the lake. Sleeping in that queensize bed gives you the stars and moon to dream on, and a comfy chair facing the great outdoors, to lull you into a peaceful trance of relaxation.

The kitchen is large and user friendly with everything you need to cook a great meal or warm a quick bite in the microwave. Washer and Dryer are a must for keeping your travel bags light and easy. The great dinning table is a perfect spot to gather for meals or playing games and watching the wonderland through the huge windows that view the lake. Two full Bathrooms, on the first floor with shower no tub, on the 2nd floor, a shower and jacuzzi jet bathtub.

As soon as you’re ready to venture out into nature, you will find a plethora of things to do and plenty of room to romp right outside the doors. One canoe and one kayak available for your use. Year round, you can take a hike in the spring, summer or fall, or snowshoe or ski out onto the breathtaking frozen lake and feel the fresh crisp air filling you up and bringing you back to your natural joyful state of mind and body. Just two miles back down the Pike Lake Rd you will find 30K of beautifully groomed ski trails with loops to fit any skier’s energy level. Hundreds of miles of hiking and snowmobile trails near by and right out the front door as well as snow shoeing and hiking on the Superior Trail or the Cascade River Loop. And the amazing Lutsen Mountain ski area, for the downhill skiers, is just thirty minutes south on hwy 61 and offers activities and fun all year long.

Head up North and watch the sun rise and fall over this oasis of beautiful wilderness and fill your eyes with the moon and stars like you won’t see in the city. This wonderful home and cabin is waiting just for you. Aurora Borealis; the Northern Lights may appear.

This wonderful lake home has a wood-burning stove and in-floor heating. See more photos at justwrightphotos dot phanfare dot com. Click the link below...far below, where it is written: Click Here My Photography Website

Guestbook comments from the manager
Thanks again for all your help and assistance prior to the actual vacation trip - it was all done so well.

We had a lovely time at the cabin. Weather was good, next door was very nice German Catholic group, loved the kayaking on the like glass lake surface, home was clean, roomy, had everything like home, glad we did the full week, made lots of trips to surrounding areas, saw local wild life, and best of all away from all the city hassles. Thanks Again for sharing a very spiritual home away from home. Barry, Cathy, Nic, Bri, Pebbles & Roxy (the dogs loved it also). We cleaned up during the week like it was our home, all should of been in order before leaving.

wonderful get-away

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful New Year's Eve holiday at Northern Enlightenment...thanks for sharing your beautiful home! Everyone loved the wood-burning fire place, the cozy living room space, and the beautiful views of the lake from the upstairs lake room. It was so nice to cross-country ski and snowshoe right out the front door onto the lake and warm up next to fireplace...plus the driveway made for a fantastic sledding hill! Hope to come back again, maybe the summer next time.

Peaceful, Clean and Worry-Free

  • 4 of 5
Thanks for an excellent holiday week at our favorite lake in Minnesota! We enjoyed sledding, skiing and walks on the lake. The house had everything we needed -- including christmas lights to decorate a tree and interior. Only suggestion would be a more specific description of beds/rooms, as even with clarification, we were still surprised! Regardless, 10 people fit comfortably on two double futons, two queen beds, and day bed (no trundle, just thin extra mattress). Grand Marais is close enough for town runs, and we were pleasantly surprised by the well-equipped kitchen. Thank you!

Lovely second honeymoon

  • 5 of 5
We had an AMAZING time. Lovely place, Loons on the lake, Coyote in the woods, a snake and millions of stars. It was the perfect place to get away from it all. We will of course be returning, hopefully several times a year. We found "our" place, to canoe, drink coffee, have a campfire, and so much more I am just too lazy to write it all down. Comfy beds, big kitchen, jacuzzi tub, what more can i say..............

Great large family vacation location

  • 4 of 5
What a wonderful week we had at this cabin. There were nine of us, and there was plenty of room. The upstairs bedrooms are enormous and each held families of four. The kitchen and main living area are roomy and well laid-out. The shoreline is gorgeous and we enjoyed picnicking there. We loved the kayak so much, we bought one when we returned home. The water is crystal clear and great for kids to wade in. Grand Marais is a fun town to visit.

To be honest, there were some issues with the business part of the trip. The nice lady who manages the bookings is not the owner. They have a complicated schedule of deposits and payments, and apparently two systems of tracking. To complicate matters, we changed our dates before making the final booking. Records got confused and our week was double-booked one night. They worked hard to fix the error, and all ended well for us. You should not be afraid to book this property, but extra-clear communications are crucial, especially when making changes.
