About Kristine Tate
I am originally from the Upper Penninsula and left the area in 1983. I spent the last 20+ years in South Florida as a Flight Attendant and Business Owner. I recently relocated back to the Munising area to allow my children to experience wonderful Midwest living and the beautiful outdoors.
Kristine Tate purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Kristine Tate chose Grand Marais
I have always loved Grand Marais and felt a special attachment to the area many years ago. There is just something about being here that is really good for the soul! I purchased this home after seeing it while on the garden tour through Grand Marais. It is a very old home and needed quite a bit of attention. My friends and family thought I had lost my mind and tried to persuade me otherwise. There is such a great feeling inside this home. I knew there had to be alot of happy memories created and so much history. While I worked on the home, several local people stopped to visit and share those stories with me. Just as I had expected, they were amazing stories about great families and the wonderful lives that were lived on the corner of Carlson.
What makes this Cottage unique
The location is just perfect. Being a few blocks from the water makes for great summer nights by the bonfire. It's much warmer inland, without the breeze, as summer temps in Grand Marais are generally on the cooler side. While in Grand Marais, I walk and bike everywhere I need to be. I also enjoy the evenings sitting on the porch and visiting with locals and tourists as they stroll the neighborhoods, dog walk, and bike. Car watching on H-58 is also entertaining as many exotic car clubs make the trip from Munising to Grand Marais daily. For the winter enthusiast, we have plenty of parking for trucks and trailers.

Thank you so much for the nice review. We truly enjoyed hosting your group and hope we have the opportunity to see you again soon! Thank you- Kristine
Great location to stay, only bad thing was we lost heat Friday thru Saturday am. Contacted owner to see if we could get comp’d one night and was told no, I should have called Friday night at 11pm when we got back from riding.
I’m so sorry you were not satisfied with the rate and/or inability to comp a night for you. We received a message from the guest at 9 am that the heat had gone out during the previous day and they returned at 8:30 pm. They did not reach out to us for assistance until the following day. We had an HVAC rep at the cottage within 15 minutes after receiving the message. The furnace was up and running again in a few short minutes. We allowed the guest to check in on day 1 5 hours early and def would have offered a complimentary night if they had reached out to us at 8:30 pm and given us the opportunity to address the issue or provide them with a relocation in lieu of waiting until the next day. Thank you
Great Location close to everything for snowmobiling
I have stayed here multiple times with friends and family and plan to come back in the future. The home is close to the downtown amenities and close to the trail access for snowmobiling.
Thank you so much for your great review. We appreciate your feedback Patrick and we hope to see you again this winter! Merry Christmas!
Stayed 3 nights at this cute place with a friend! We were day hiking the North Country Trail which was within walking distance. The property is located just a couple of blocks from the beach and town. The rental had everything we needed! Kristine was easy to communicate with via VRBO messaging and phone.
Thank you so much for the nice review! Sounds like you had a fun trip and we are so happy we could provide you with a cozy accommodation after your day on the trails. I hope we get to see you again on a future trip to the UP. Thank you again and have a wonderful holiday season!
We had a great experience with this rental. It’s an adorable, clean, cutely decorated cottage with everything you need for the stay. The property manager was super nice and easy to get ahold of. It’s walking distance to downtown Grand Marais!
Nice beach cottage!
Enjoyed our stay at the beach cottage. Had fire outside at night. Clean and comfortable place with everything we needed and more.
Thank you so much for your nice review. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor space. The fire pit is a very popular gathering place for our guests. We do hope we have another opportunity to host your group in the future! Thank you and have a wonderful day!
