Overview

Grand Marais Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

It is the quiet that you'll first notice. We're almost at the end of the paved road, surrounded by woods and water. Located on the north shore of 7 mile long Devil Track Lake, you'll awake to the lonely call of the loons and the sound of water lapping on the sand beach. You'll notice the night sky too - no lights to interfere with the Milky Way and the wheeling stars.

2-3 night minimum spring and fall seasons.

Weekly only summer season June 21-Sept. 1.

Clean, clear water for swimming, fishing or boating will attract you, as well as the crisp clean air. Hiking and mountain biking trails are nearby, but maybe you'll just want to barbecue on the deck and enjoy a meal at the picnic table. Maybe prepare a gourmet dinner in the full kitchen. But you'll want to spend as much time as possible outside, and near the water. It will feed your soul.

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness has access points within 10 miles. Or enjoy a little used hiking/ski trail just across the road(great for dogs).

The picturesque town of Grand Marais is only 11 miles away with shopping, dining, music and theatre options for entertainment.

Head up the famous Gunflint Trail for more hiking, swimming and fishing, maybe sample some of the restaurants at the rustic lodges.

Keywords: Cabin, near Grand Marais, on Devil Track Lake. Relax and listen to the loons, small sand beach, swimming, fishing, canoe, kayak, fishing boat available. Near hiking trails. Pet friendly. 40'dock. Located on the north shore of Devil Track Lake. GREAT VIEW!

About Jane and Jim Shinners

Jane and Jim Shinners owned the Harbor Inn Restaurant & Motel in Grand Marais for 16 years and are now semi-retired. We are experienced Boundary Waters paddlers, bikers, hikers and Nordic skiers, and can provide you with the local knowledge that can make your visit a meaningful one. We strive to make your visit memorable.

Jane and Jim Shinners purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Jane and Jim Shinners chose Grand Marais

Just 11 miles from Grand Marais and its shops, restaurants and local culture, Devil Point Cabin is at the end of the paved road and on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Easy access to our favorite activities, canoeing, biking, kayaking, swimming and hiking are all right out the door, along with great fishing.

What makes this cabin unique

It's the quiet that is so appealing here - broken sometimes by the call of a loon or Barred Owls. Occasionally wolves can be heard howling in the hills. We've spent entire evenings tucked in a sleeping bag on the deck while the Aurora Borealis lights the northern sky. Wake up to see the sunrise over the lake, and watch the fog burn off over the water as the day warms up. Maybe a bracing swim before breakfast on the deck. Those are our favorite times. A walk in the woods across the road with the dog is perfect anytime of day. But this spot is about being out of doors and reconnecting with nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After 100 miles of "no vacancy" signs on a Saturday in September, seeing one at Harbor Inn in the middle of Grand Marais had to be a mistake. Instead, the owners directed us here to the most pleasant surprise imaginable! You truly have a gem here in the middle of this beautiful country. We plan on coming back and spending more time so we can enjoy everything you have to offer. Thank you!!

Beautiful cabin, wonderful owners!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had an incredible time at the Devil Track Lake Cabin last weekend. The owners were really friendly and very helpful in recommending hiking and activities in the area. They even offered to shuttle us to the hike.
The cabin was very clean and had all the amenities that you could possibly need. The lake is gorgeous and they have a huge porch with a grill that we used to prepare our dinner with ingredients that we got from the local co-op (which I definitely recommend checking out).
We will definitely be going back to this cabin again!

Fall beauty!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is very comfortable and well-stocked. It's on a beautiful lot right on the lake - just far enough out of town to really feel like you've gone away, but close enough to go in for a nice dinner or some shopping. I can easily recommend this cabin - everything was great! There were a lot of books of local interest, plus maps and other information for those who may not know the area well. The owners are very good hosts!

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Perfect place to recharge our batteries after a hectic couple of weeks leading up to our daughter's wedding. Setting is beautiful, the cabin clean, comfortable and well-equipped (even has a washing machine!). We would love to come back in a little warmer weather to enjoy the canoes/kayak and the lake. As it was, we had fun taking in the arts and shopping in Grand Marais - just a short 10 minute drive away. So glad we had a chance to meet Jane and compare notes on Georgian Bay and the Bruce peninsula (thanks, Jane for your kind gift of the Manatoulin book).

First visit to the North Shore!

  • 5 of 5
Loved everything about this place! Would definitely stay here again, maybe next time during the hotter part of the summer so we can take advantage of the little beach and swimming! Lots of outdoor activities in this area, esp. if you are into hiking. The town of Grand Marais is not far away and every restaurant we tried was pretty good to downright fantastic!

The Perfect Getaway

  • of 5
Within minutes of arriving, my wife and I were already talking about renting this cabin again. It had everything that we were looking for. The cabin was clean and comfortable, and included all the amenities. The beach and dock were a regular hangout, where we enjoyed daily visits from a family of ducks. We loved the privacy, but also appreciated the closeness to town when we felt like shopping or eating at a restaurant. Alberto was a kind and gracious host, not to mention an amazing baker, who spoiled us with his freshly baked loaves of bread. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our dogs also loved it :)

AWESOME Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation was awesome. The cabin was everything that we expected and more. On our arrival we were greeted by Alberto who meet us with a warm loaf of bread. He welcomed us and we moved right in. With the dock for the boat and the swimming area we were in or on the water every day. It was the best Vacation ever for us. If you what R & R, this place is for you. We would highly recommend this cabin. Again “AWESOME” Thanks again to Alberto for the hospitality.
