Grand Marais Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms plus sleeping porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Welcome to the Plover Retreat, a cozy cabin in Grand Marais. Our cute two bedroom plus sleeping porch cabin, is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy nature. Enjoy quality bedding and towels as you 'rough it' in our cute cabin. Though only a few minutes from town, our cabin and its surrounding yard feel secluded and private. Enjoy the first cup of coffee in the morning on our deck and watch the humming birds zip around looking for food. Lazy, quiet days lend themselves to reading a book or putting together a puzzle on the enclosed porch while still getting to enjoy the scene outside.

Just a short walk from our property is the beach access for one of Lake Superiors prettiest spots. Sugary sand and shallow water for swimming meet up with the mouth of the Sucker River; the perfect spot to spend an afternoon.

As the day wears on and night fall begins, be sure to enjoy a small camp fire under the stars. Roast some marsh mellows, sing songs or tell a few tales of times gone by. Reconnect with family and friends and enjoy a slower paced life on vacation with us.

About The Owner

We are nature lovers and enjoy the majesty of lake superior. In winter the UP has snow and we like to x-ctry ski.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1991

Why The Owner chose Grand Marais

When I came down the hill into town the first time back in the early 80's, I said to myself, 'I gotta get a place here' GM is 'nature in abundance.'

What makes this cabin unique

The sound of the lake, to hear the waves crashing on shore

A wonderful week of vacation

  • 5 of 5
When we started to plan this year's trip to the US which had to include a visit with old friends on Douglas Lake, south of the Mackinaw bridge, we realized that this would be a chance to spend some days on the UP, an area which was totally unknown to us Swiss. Grand Marais with its proximity to the Pictured Rock National Lakeshore, and also not too far from the Seney National Wildlife Refuge, was soon the choice. Then we found the description of Plover Retreat in the internet and thought: That's it. How right we were. Rental agreement and payment from overseas functioned with the kind support by the local manager. Her directions by e-mail how to drive to the cabin helped us to find it without any problem on a sunny late afternoon and to settle there with ease.

It was the start of a marvelous week in which we enjoyed to explore the beautiful and fascinating landscape on Lake Superior by hiking, to learn about the local history and to be at leisure in this wonderful cabin. Its rustic and carefully decorated wooden interior is well arranged and equipped with everything what is needed for a real 'retreat'. It was so peaceful to sit back in one of the comfortable armchairs and to page through the botany and wildlife books from the little cupboard. Even the Webster's rendered its service when we were lost with an American term. In town, we met friendly people who gave us many interesting information about passed days and everyday life in this region.

If Plover Retreat wasn't so far away from home we would come back very soon to this neat spot. Well, who knows? A big 'thank you' to the owners for making Plover Retreat available for rent and to the local manager for her perfect administrative Service.

This was my second stay at this cabin, and it wonderful. Fully stocked with all the odds and ends necessary for a week away from real life, all we had to do was bring in food and paper products. Unfortunately, we picked the wrong time to visit, as Lake Superior was still full of ice (meaning canceled sight seeing cruises), the locals were extremely welcoming, friendly, and more than willing to share alternate sights and attractions. This cabin and its location is perfect for people who love nature and want to get away from hectic life. I look forward to future vacations and time-outs from real life in this area and highly recommend Plover retreat. The manager for this property was also very helpful, reliable, and well informed, smoothing the rental process for us and making it as easy as can be. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Our first time in the UP...great place to stay if you have a family of four like we do and don't want to eat out all the time. There is a grill and the kitchen is small but functions well. The place is very comfortable, the fire pit is fun, the town has everything you need, the beach is great for finding rocks. The only thing the place was lacking was a can opener and some good family movies to watch at night while you wind down. We hiked every trail in Pictured Rocks, took a guided kayak trip and a day trip to Saute Ste, Marie.

Seclusion, 5 minutes from town

The photos are true to life, not pictured is a wood stove. The enclosed side porch and outdoor porch were our favorite places to hang out. The side porch has a sliding door can be used to insulate others from the sound of the TV. Due to an unusual circumstance (new water main in town) we got to meet the neighbor and several townspeople. They are really nice and their concern and friendliness actually made me feel safe and secure rather than inconvenienced. There was plenty of split wood stacked outside and inside for a campfire or woodstove. I believe you children could sleep in the side porch with sleeping bags. The beds are not queen size, they are smaller. We both felt very positive about our stay at the Plover, it was quiet, private, peaceful, we could actually hear every so often when an apple fall from a tree. The cabin is a good base camp, for day trips to the National Park and close to town, the public beach, restaurants, and stores. Recommend Superior brew pub and Agate beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. The Plover Retreat has welcomes new owners and they have made many exciting changes to the cabin. Please check out the new pictures and descriptions. One thing to mention is the absence of the wood stove. It has been removed to allow for the addition of a sleeping area.

We hope to see you back! Thanks again.
