Placed along the gorgeous Fall River, this A-frame cabin has a secluded wilderness feel, just two miles from Grand Marais. Take advantage of Grand Marais' renowned restaurants, shops, and shoreline or relax by your river-side campfire after a day of exploration or relaxation.

Explore the rivers, and trails of this 25 acre wooded lot. Rest or catch up on a good book in the sun-filled and spacious interior, from a hammock between two birch trees, or on the large front deck surrounded by nature.

The space
Our family loves hiking the north shore's rivers and always thought it would be great to have a cabin on one of those great rivers. Here it is!

The lush green vegetation surrounding the cabin transforms into dazzling fall colors in September and October. Spring melt turns the otherwise meandering, cascading Fall River into a powerful torrent you can hear from inside the cabin.

Even though the cabin is located only a mile from the shore of Lake Superior and 2.5 miles from Grand Marais, it maintains a truly North woods, off grid feel: a winding private gravel road heads up the hill from Lake Superior, crossing over a small creek, where you'll park at the trail head. From there you'll hike 400 yards (about a 5 minute walk) on a foot path to this charming cabin in the woods, perched along the bluff of the Fall River.

A cart is available if you want it. The cabin has a well equipped kitchen with pots and pans, silverware, glassware, a propane stovetop, a double insulated built-in cooler, and over 30 gallons of water for drinking, dishes, and cleaning.

The A-frame has south-facing floor to ceiling windows that showcase the surrounding woods and allow plenty of light and warmth. For brisk spring and fall nights there is a small propane heater to take off the chill.

There is a cozy bedroom downstairs with a queen bed and up the spiral staircase is a window-filled loft with three twin beds. All beds will be supplied with pillows and bedding.

There is a small solar powered system supporting the lighting for the bedroom, kitchen, and loft and a phone charger.

The Sun-Mar compost toilet is environmentally friendly, convenient, and comfortable. The deck and included hammocks offer the opportunity to relax and bask in the 25 acre wood and listen to the river run.

Some will enjoy splashing in the river, or swimming beneath the waterfall where the Fall River meets the lake. Some will use the simple camping-style solar shower, or if they want more water pressure may visit the Grand Marais rec park for a $4 shower, or buy a $10 day-pass to the Grand Marais YMCA to take advantage of the gym, workout facility, showers, hot tub, sauna, and pool.

The newly constructed A-frame (2019-2020) is comfortable with many windows and a vaulted ceiling that offer abundant natural lighting and breezes.

Kids and adults alike will enjoy walking along the bank or through the moving water of the larger Fall River, or racing sticks, and rock searching on the smaller creek. From the cabin, expect to see deer, squirrels, and birds ranging from songbirds to woodpeckers, grouse, ravens, and bald eagles. The woods are also home to less frequent visitors like black bear and moose. Coyote and timber-wolves can be heard howling nearby as well. Also keep an eye out for edible (and non-edible) mushrooms as well as wild raspberries.

All of this, a short bike ride, run, or drive from the Lake Superior shoreline and Grand Marais!

We started visiting the North Shore during canoe trips when we were teenagers. We feel really lucky to be living in our favorite place and we're excited to share our enthusiasm for this place with our guests. We find that many of our guests are drawn to the same things that attracted us to the area: unique and varied scenery, great fishing and hiking, terrific North shore dining, and the sound of rolling waves putting you to sleep after a big day.
