About Darrell or Susie Splett
Hi we are Darrell and Susie. Susie has 5 generations of family in Grand Marais with history on Greenwood Lake starting in the 1930s. We currently live in Thunder Bay Ontario which is a short drive to Grand Marais. We love being at the cabin away from everything including internet and TV. We love to fish and ride our 4-wheelers or snowmobiles in the winter. We play many games and put puzzles together on our designated puzzle table. The picture above was taken over Thanksgiving when we cut down our Christmas tree. In the summer we spend time relaxing on the deck and by the beach. The trip isn't complete without a campfire! We built the ring around the fire extra wide for safety. While designing the cabin our main concept was designed around family and I feel we were very successful!
Darrell or Susie Splett purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why Darrell or Susie Splett chose Grand Marais
The Brazell family has had property on Greenwood Lake since the early 1930's. This property has been in our family for years. My husband and I dreamed of building on 'The Mountain' and our dream came true.

What a pleasure this home is. Completely self sustaining with views that leave you in awe. Everything you need is here. We were apprehensive about being completely off the grid but with having Grand Marais close by it ended up being a pleasant thing. No interruptions or distractions to our.family time. Thank you again to the owners for sharing your home.
Most amazing views in Minnesota
For being an “off the grid” home, it sure didn’t feel like off the grid living! The windows in the living room made the most amazing views all day and night. Sip your coffee and watch the sunrise listening to the loons, or watching the stars while sitting around the campfire! We saw more shooting stars and satellites in a week than we have in the last 5 years! It was amazing!! We had an amazing time fishing, lots of fish and not a single person on the lake each time. It was peaceful and beautiful. Over all amazing time, we will be back! We highly recommend staying here!
Stunningly beautiful but really remote!
This is a really beautiful property, where you feel almost like you are in a tree house in the top of the pines and jutting out almost over the lake! The views are stunning and the property was very clean and pretty much as presented.
The downside of the property is that it is very, very remote and down a very bumpy, slow, curvy, hilly, gravel road. We came in after a rain storm and almost got stuck without four wheel drive, which I would highly recommend. The listing also showed wireless internet when we booked but found out through another review that it wasn't available, so I believe was removed from the listing. Cell connections to Canadian towers were not reliable. Again, it's a remarkable property but potential renters should have a pretty good idea about its remoteness.
We had a peaceful and relaxing week at this off-the-grid cabin. You never get tired of the view - it is beautiful everyday. The cabin is extremely well equipped and the layout is really smart. The thoughtful details makes it easy to feel at home and to relax. Be prepared for no internet - there is no wifi. There is cell service from Canada. You will truly be unplugged. The access to the lake is great for a kayak or paddle board and the public boat access isn't too far away. Large driveway is super convenient for parking the truck, boat and trailer. The dirt road back to the cabin is very bumpy and can feel long after a few trips back and forth to get to 61 for day trips. It's not bad - just something to be prepared for. We enjoyed our stay and had a great vacation.
Million Dollar View!
We loved staying here! Everything was extremely clean and comfortable. You cannot get a better view! The owners were extremely friendly and we had great communication regarding our stay. We will definitely rent here again!
How fortunate we were to find this very special property! It is homey, comfy and offers a spectacular view—it’s almost as if you are in a treehouse.
The home is immaculate, and the owners have thought through the details. The kitchen is a dream—well appointed with many incidentals included.
We arrived on an unexpectedly chilly day in September and were delighted to find how quickly the heat kicked in. We really appreciated the hydronic heat.
The property is tucked in the wilderness and is ideal for those seeking silence. We came face to face with a young bull moose on one of our treks in—spectacular!
We can only imagine how beautiful the views are in winter and summer. We would love to return one day.
We should mention that the owners were very responsive and allowed us to shift our dates at the last minute. So happy they were able to accommodate us!
Peaceful and relaxing! Enjoy the music of the birds and loons from the cabin or on the lake. Hike, bike, boat, or canoe on the lake. Take a drive up the historic Gunflint Trail to enjoy the many special places like the Chik-Wauk museum which features the history of the Gunflint Trail including my grandfather. Grand Marais is only a 30 minute drive for your fill of the World's Best Donuts owned by my sister-in-law.
