Historic Hotel Grand Marais Vacation Rental

“Rustic Luxury in Paradise”

Poet, novelist, screenwriter and rugged-individualist Jim Harrison never slept here as far as we know, but he drank (and occasionally still drinks) just a short block away at the Lake Superior Brewing Company (Dunes Saloon).

Location, location, location! Just park your car and walk to everything!

Welcome to the new and improved Historic Hotel Grand Marais, located in the oldest commercial building in town, just two blocks west of the white sand beaches of Grand Marais Harbor, two blocks south of the agate beaches of Lake Superior and one block from the heart of downtown. Combining natural beauty, history, fine art and local color, this is a great starting point for exploring Grand Marais and the Upper Peninsula.

The rental features a kitchen, living room, private bath and sleeps up to four. The renovated historic 1883 building was originally Hotel Grand Marais and a lumber company office. As a tribute to the old growth White Pine forests, which once blanketed the region, wooden exposed walls in the bedrooms show massive boards. The kitchen/living room features a piano bar, where you can sip cool drinks and share conversation as meals are prepared.

The Suite evokes a feeling of yesteryear, simpler times and features a collection of antique brewery advertising, framed Jim Harrison quotes and two of the original pillars of Historic Hotel Grand Marais.

Owned and operated Belgian beer tour producer Stu Stuart (Belgian Beer Me! Tours).

Now featuring Wi-Fi, TV and a large video collection for those rainy days.

New this year, only three-night minimum rental and not weekly minimum as in past years. Weekly rentals are typically Saturday-to-Saturday. You don't have to stay the entire time, but you would need to book it and pay for it. People sometimes book three nights and stay only two because it's still a great deal. Make your reservation today!

About Stu Stuart

Historic Hotel Grand Marais Vacation Rental is owned by Stu Stuart. Stu is a tour producer, specializing in beer tours of Belgium and Bamberg, Germany. For more information, please visit:



I also spend a large part of each summer living on Mackinac Island. The building is closed in the winter months. During this time, Stu resides in Cave Creek, Arizona.

Stu Stuart purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Stu Stuart chose Upper Peninsula Michigan

I purchased this historic building in 2000 because I wanted a vacation home in this beautiful harbor town of Grand Marais, which I had visited many times. With a Herculean effort and plenty of blind ambition, I completely remodeled the building with new plumbing, electrical, paint and overall design, while maintaining its historic and architectural integrity. I am certain you will enjoy its comfort, location and charm.

What makes this apartment unique

The building features the warm and comfortable Historic Hotel Grand Marais Vacation Rental on the ground floor on the west side. On the east side is a retail space formerly known as Campbell Street Gallery. The space now is part of our private residence and serves as the home office of Belgian Beer Me! Beer Tours.

Upstairs is a two-bedroom loft, which is the owners quarters, aka, Governor's Suite, and where we stay when we visit Grand Marais. It has a separate private entrance.

The name Historic Hotel Grand Marais Vacation Rental is a nod to the past when the building was first built in 1883 and was a hotel and lumber company office.

Located only one block form main street and two blocks to the bay and Lake Superior, it is the perfect location for a relaxing, memorable and fun vacation.

Perfect cozy getaway, central location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our three nights in the Historic Hotel Grand Marais. The rental is very clean and cozy with cute and thoughtful decor. We loved all the special touches throughout. It was the perfect setting for our UP adventure and a great location for Pictured Rocks, Tahquamenon Falls and the Shipwreck Museum. The town is charming with many quirky and interesting little museums. The beach is beautiful, great for collecting beach stones and within walking distance.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 3 wonderful days at the HHGM. The whole place has a warm and friendly atmosphere- very clean and comfortable. The little extras... bottle of wine on our arrival, little bouquet of flowers, and the quotes of Jim Harrison (a personal favorite!) around the house made it even more special. Thanks so much Stu and Pam.... you were great hosts!! We will definitely come back.

Stu's place in the historic Grand Marais hotel is amazing. Exactly as the description reads. Within a block of the marina (great for watching sunrises!) and downtown. The age and charm of the space created a warm and inviting feel throughout our stay. Great central location for those wishing to enjoy Munising and Whitefish Point. It is a small town so if you have certain foods, etc bring them long, or you will be searching through aisles of the local gas station\food mart looking for your choices!

We truly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back and visit. Stu is a wonderful host! Stu is a rockstar!

Very clean and convenient location. We went to the beach for sunsets and took many day trips to surrounding locations. Centrally located, yet still with that small town ambiance. Made trips to Soo Locks, Machinaw, and Picture Locks tour out of Munising. Stu was wonderful to work with and made a special visit to see that we were situated.

Quaint and perfect

  • 5 of 5

Very quaint and clean rental in a perfect location. We were able to walk to the deserted beach for perfect sunsets and sit at the harbor when the wind came up. Stu was very easy to work with and didn't add all the red tape and fees you usually get with other rentals. This is the perfect place to stay to explore Pictured Rocks National Park and you can walk to Sable Falls along the beach. Very unique weekend...thanks Stu.

Located adjacent to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore featuring Sable Dunes. Great place to stay to explore Munising and take the Glass Bottom Shipwreck tour boat and boat tour of the Pictured Rocks. Both both tours depart from Munising. Be sure to visit Johnny Dogs in Munising for lunch.
