Overview

Grand Marais House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Stille Havet. It sounds like what it is... a 'still haven,' a quiet rest.

Located on a private stretch of Lake Superior's rocky North Shore, Stille Havet offers an expansive view of the world's largest freshwater lake.

Watch the sunrise in the morning and the sunset in the evening over the Sawtooth Mountains while relaxing 'surfside' on a spacious walkout deck. Surprisingly, this gorgeous hideaway is less than three miles from downtown Grand Marais, Minnesota.

You will be challenged to find a more beautiful setting. We invite you to take a look.

Keywords: Exquisite Vacation Home on the Shore of Lake Superior's North Shore.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at this great house. It feels so homey, comfortable, warm and cozy with a great view of the lake. Each morning we would eagerly look out the windows to see what transformation the lake had undergone while snuggled in our amazing beds. And each morning the lake never disappointed us with it's beauty. Our four generation family played games, sewed, napped and enjoyed each others company in the comfort of this house. It's so nice to be close enough to Grand Marais that a quick trip to the store is truly that, unless you happen to go into the best Ben Franklin in town. We have already booked for our return next winter.

Magnificent North Shore home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three generations has been vacationing on the North Shore for many years and this is the most beautiful house we have ever rented. The setting is so close to the lake that when you look out all you see is water. It reminded me of being on a cruise ship. The home itself is so comfortable and spacious. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need, the beds were comfortable and imagine, three and a half baths! There is even a washer and dryer available if needed. The proximity to Grand Marais is a bonus. Don't miss Huey's Tacos. All the privacy and comfort you desire while looking at the water and awesome sunrises and sunsets. You won't be disappointed.

Fall fun on the north shore

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two wonderful days at Stille Havet - wish we had stayed longer! It was very clean, well furnished, comfortable - and the views were breathtaking! We would like to come up next time with a group and have the whole house - but the lower level was great for two! We will definitely return and would certainly recommend this to anyone staying in the area.

'Grand Getaway'

  • 5 of 5

Stille Havet is a 'must stay' home when going to enjoy the North Shore. The home is boldly right on the rocks of Lake Superior. It boasts a magnificent view from all of the rooms of the house. The home feels like you are at your own cabin, it is well decorated with all of the items you could possibly need. The privacy of this home is incredible, and town is only a few minutes away. We have continued a couples getaway to this home, as it hosts a large dining area both inside and on the deck; has a great room with spectacular views and a fireplace; and three of the bedrooms have their own bathroom. The sunrises and sunsets are amazing, and the sound of the waves is a vacation in and of itself. Tim the manager has been superb to work with each year. He is efficient, genuine, thorough, and very friendly. The home has always been in excellent shape the last two times we have stayed, and we are in the midst of planning our next years vacation again to Stille Havet. We do not typically go back to the same place twice, but this home is simply amazing. You will definitely be happy that you stayed here! As for things to do, we have enjoyed a fishing charter, climbed Eagle Mountain (tallest point in MN), golfed locally, enjoyed the town of Grand Marais, and are looking forward to a sunset cruise and adventuring up the Gunflint Trail. Because there are so many different things to do in this area, we will keep going back and enjoying Stille Havet!

This is one of the cleanest and most well maintained VRBO homes that we have ever stayed at. It is a beautiful home. The bedrooms are all spacious and beautifully decorated and it would be a big bonus to have pictures of them on your website. The master bedroom king size bed that we used was very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils. The area the home is in is private with no homes immediately next door. The manager was efficient, friendly, and easy to work with. It is unanimous. This has been our favorite VRBO home that we have stayed at so far. Just stay here. You will be glad that you did. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your lovely home. Concerning point of Interest in the area, you will love the town of Grand Marais. Don’t miss Beth’s Fudge & Gifts shop. It is seriously some of the best homemade fudge you will get anywhere. My favorite is the Vanilla Praline. We also loved the Snicker Doodle coffee at the White Pine North shop. You will want to make sure to see Artist’s Point. A short walk down Broadway Ave ends at the Coast Guard parking lot and you can pick up the ½ mile trail from there. It takes you through a very memorable little boreal forest and out to the point. Also, the Lutsen Mountain Alpine Slide & Gondola ride is a lot of fun (south of Grand Marais). North of Grand Marais is Minnesota’s tallest waterfall in Grand Portage State Park, just on the border with Canada. On the way to the falls we stopped at Naniboujou Lodge Restaurant which had very good food. Even if you don’t eat there you should stop and see the wondrously painted 30 x 80 dining room painted with Cree Indian designs. Stay at VRBO # 46016 and you will have a very memorable and amazing vacation.
