Grand Marais Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Waterfront/beachfront property with a fireplace. 3 bedroom, 1 bath

2 NIGHT MINIMUM BOOKINGS ARE NOW BEING TAKEN FOR FALL OF 2014. Bookings for 2015 will not be accepted until MARCH 1, 2015 (Sorry, no exceptions to this policy).

An original log cabin inside, this property is on the bay in Grand Marais, Michigan. The Bay Cabin is a small 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom cabin with a study. It has a beach in the backyard, as it is fronting onto the bay in Grand Marais. A few yards short of the beach is the firepit where you can relax and watch fireworks on July 4 or just enjoy the tranquility of the water. The Bay Cabin also has a large deck for relaxing or dining while taking advantage of the great views. Behind the property a few hundred feet is the Lake Superior shore front.

Inside the Bay Cabin you will find a fully equipped kitchen, soft and comfortable bed and bath linen and cable TV. The master bedroom has a queen size bed with a new 3 inch memory foam topper and a view of the bay. The second bedroom has a full size bed. The third bedroom has bunk beds and the study has a twin bed. You will also find a lovely granite gas fireplace to warm your toes in the living room when there is a chill in the air.

The Bay Cabin was originally built in 1936 as a traditional full log cabin. Sometime later it was sided on the outside for additional insulation, but the inside remains true whole logs. The floors are lovely local hardwood with soft rugs placed in strategic spots. A soft leather couch and rocking chairs with ottomans completes the log cabin decor.

Outside there is a large deck with reclining chairs and ottomans, and a dining table. Under the side porch we have placed a wood picnic bench for outside dining on a hot sunny summer day or for when it is raining. For relaxing, with a warm beverage or a cocktail, use the deck chairs or the Bay Cabin's Adirondack chairs down at the firepit and beach. There is also a charcoal grill available for your use.

The Bay Cabin's private beach area IS 122 feet at the water's edge and 118 feet at the bank starting from the pine trees on the east side of the property. This beach is perfect for swimming, paddling, boating from, or even for pulling your sea plane into. It is also a wonderful place to sit at the edge of the water and enjoy an evening cocktail or a morning coffee. If you would like a long beach walk, just head to the open beach on the north side of the Bay Cabin by the beach accesses at either end of the road.

The Bay Cabin is about 600 feet from the center of town, playground, markets, stores, galleries, restaurants and bars. Go the other way 500 feet and you'll be at the lighthouse. Less than two miles away by road is Sable Falls and Sable Dunes, a shorter distance away if you walk the beach. Sable Lake, the Log Slide and Pictured Rocks are a little further on by road.

Come stay at the Bay Cabin and enjoy the experience of having your own waterfront cabin for a while.

1. Coming into town on H-77 (it will turn into Lake Avenue) continue through the center of town (bank on right, hardware to the left) heading toward Lake Superior, continue past the Dune Saloon then down the hill, the road will fork so go right onto Coast Guard Point Road (aka Canal Street) and continue past the marina and past the land on the right with the old large boats on it, you will then go past a fenced property and the Bay Cabin is the next house on the right hand side of the road.

Anniversary Weekend

  • 4 of 5
Great place, and great location! The Cottage served us very well, was clean and was enough room for us, a little on the small side if you have a larger group and the weather is not nice. The location was perfect because it provided a great starting point for several excursions in the Pictured Rocks area. The weather was not perfect, but the Cottage has a great deck to enjoy the outside. Would recommend staying there to friends and family. We look forward to a return trip. My only concern was the door to the deck, we had some significant wind one night and it can get a little breezy inside.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear that your weather was not nice. It is true there is a space under the back door, but there is a foam and a sand filled draft door stopper there located either on the floor behind the door or hanging next to the door. I'll purchase and add another sand filled door stopper just to be sure.

Good base for area

  • 4 of 5
As described this cabin was very small. We did have 8 people there for one night, but it would have been quite difficult for more nights. We ate outside on the deck, which is a fabulous addition.
I was sorry to see that the photos of the water front are quite deceptive. They imply a long stretch of open beach either side of the property but thats definitely not the case.There are houses on both sides, on quite a busy road and quite close to the actual road. The house was kind of separated from neighbors by trees but one can easily hear whats going on and watch the neighbors to the north quite easily.
The beach on Superior is beautiful, easy to get away from people.
Both the diner and the newer bay front restaurant were great for drop ins, we didnt eat dinner at either. Dinner was had at the Dune Saloon and it was very good.
Grocery shopping was very bad there, we stocked up in Munising. To my surprise fresh fish was very difficult to find. There was a local fisherman who had a store just south of the cabin, but he opened sporadically. We did get some fish there and it was delicious.
The cabin was spotless, the hot water was endless it seemed, no small feat when we were there wiith two teen girls.
I would have loved a gas grill, we did cook on the fire, but its not an easy task for a quick meal.
Some boating equipment would have been great, a kayak or canoe. They were very expensive to rent. its something we would have made a lot of use of.
The Upper Penninsula was beautiful. The walk from the Log Slide to the Au Train lighthouse was a wonderful walk, so quiet and just gorgeous views of the lake and dunes along the way.

Owner's Response: This guest stayed at the Bay Cabin when the Music Festival was on, which is probably the busiest and noisiest time of year in Grand Marais. Every place would be booked and almost every summer resident would be in the area. Regarding the size of the cabin, the Bay Cabin is advertised for up to 6 people because of its small size - see the guest guide at the end of the description. As for the waterfront and beach, the photos show the view and not the boundaries of the property's beach available to for walking and use, so please do not mix the two concepts - each photo has a description tag. Other than the water table being higher this year due to the big winter snow therein lessening the distance between the bank and the water the photos are accurate. When you are at the Bay Cabin you have the use of a beach 122 feet along the water, and 118 on the raised bank. The Bay Cabin's beach is one of the longest private beaches on the north side of the bay. Each waterfront owner owns down to the high water mark from their properties so please do not walk on the neighbor properties. If guests walk outside the Bay Cabin property a neighbor can ask you to leave or make you walk in the water. If you would like a long beach to walk please go to beach on the open Lake Superior waterfront to the north of the Cabin - access is from either end of the road.
From the Bay Cabin has a vacant block on each side. The next house to west is behind trees more than 200 feet away. To the east there is a small house about 60 feet from the Bay Cabin with some large pines between the firepit and that house. The house directly across the road is 200+ feet back from the road, and there is a house diagonally across the road about 60-80 feet away. When we stay we have seen very little activity at the neighbors' cabins.
In summer, and particularly for Music Festival weekend and July 4, you will certainly get more than the usual number of cars and people per day who drive or walk down the road to the lighthouse area or into town and you will likely have windows open if it is warm so you might hear some noise.
Canoes and kayaks, bicycles and ATVs can be rented in town at the Grand Marais Outfitters shop.

Owner's Response: Thank you kindly for your review. We agree that the shower is a little small, and we do have a larger corner glass shower unit waiting to be installed. We tried to install it for this summer season but we couldn't find a contractor who could install it in time. We are hoping to have it done in fall of 2014 or spring 2015 (in time for your visit next year??). We really appreciate you choosing to stay at the Bay Cabin.

At back of the Bay Cabin

Situated in the charming town of Grand Marais, Michigan, this beachfront/bayfront property (The Bay Cabin) is approximately 500 feet from town and about 500 feet from the lighthouse on the point. 200 feet behind the property is the Lake Superior shore, a favorite for rock collectors. Sable Dunes and Sable Falls is approximately a mile by road or less if you walk the beach. Sable Lake is around 2 miles away from The Bay Cabin. The local bars and restaurants are about 500 feet away and the same for the local markets and playground. The Grand Marais bay is a good spot to pull your sailing boat into, and in fact, you can park it in the water infront of The Bay Cabin. The area is also a favorite for snowmobilers, hunters and general summer goers. Local fireworks are set off over the bay for July 4th and New Years Eve.
