About Craig Winnie

I first found Grand Marais in 1994 and it was love at first site on my way down the hill into Grand Marais. I relocated here shortly after and purchased Sunset Cabins in 1997. I am an avid hiker,biker and cross country skier.

Craig Winnie purchased this house in 1997

Why Craig Winnie chose Michigan

I was drawn to the cabins and property and kept my eye on them until they came up for sale in 1997. They were built in the late 30s and were in need of major renovations. I restored them all with a traditional to the area cedar shingle siding and wood interiors. The Lodge was my dream home started in 2003 and finally finished in 2007. My family is now grown and it's time to downsize back into my smaller old home

What makes this house unique

Four years went into the making of this home from the stairway to the board and baton Master bedroom to the wrap around porch. This is great home for the larger family

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Grand Marais at Sunset Cabins. The Lodge is equipped with everything you need and more to feel like you are right at home. The owner Craig was friendly and really flexible when we needed a last minute change. The location was perfect for our trip and just minutes from town and right on the water. Very beautiful home, property and area. Highly recommend!!

Winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was the perfect location for our annual snowmobile vacation. It is very clean and well kept. The amenities were great after a long day of riding. There was plenty of parking for our large trucks and trailers. Trail access was not on site, but was only about 1 mile away which was ok since the roads were mostly snow covered. The owner is great to deal with. I would recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be back for another vacation. Thank you Craig for sharing your home with us!

Fantastic weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 couples stay at the lodge for a long weekend. The location was fantastic, and the house was excellent! Very large and spacious, very up north feel, and all the amenities for a relaxing stay. The house is in great proximity to all the must see places as well. We loved the house and our stay, and will definitely be staying there again!

Three couples from Ohio stayed at the Lodge for one week in Sept. 2014. This place is well kept, beautiful and has everything you could want or need on vacation! All is very clean, comfortable beds, beautiful and sturdy furniture. The porch is amazing!! Thank you for a great time!!! Does have lots of steps if that's a problem. We are all in our 50's and 60's and didn't bother us.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the lodge!! The owner was very prompt in answering all my many questions! The house had plenty of towels, sheets, pillows and extra bedding. All the rooms are quite big and easily fit a pack n play and/or a cot for our small children. Most importantly all the beds were very comfortable!! Our bedframe was a bit noisy but bed itself was very nice! The kitchen was well equipped only thing lacking was coffee grinder and only a few bowls. We knew ahead of time and brought our grinder, there was a very nice blender!! There was lots of outdoor seating and tables on the wrap around deck! The washer and dryer were nice for all the kids beach wear and multiple outfit changes. The walk to beach is about 15 minutes w kids under 5, which was fine for us as the kids loved the adventure walk to beach! You can also drive around and it's only a 5 min walk to water. There is also a nice beach in town only 1.5 miles that has a playground and easy parking. We can not say enough about the lovely time we had:) in town there is a nice bakery, diner and brewery as well as pictured rocks a short drive away!!!
