The Writer's Cabin is a quaint, long established residence hidden in the oldest part of town. It has been fully restored and modernized to provide all the creature comforts and yet remain historic in nature. Set amidst lush landscaping, the cabin is only steps from the harbor. All amenities are provided including an new enameled cast iron gas fireplace, a new therapeutic air tub for two, a new top of the line queen bed, a well equipped modern kitchen, satellite TV with flat screen and theatre surround, an antique secretary writing desk, high speed wireless internet, and various objects of interest representative of famous writers and local writers including locally written books and Ernest Hemmingway's favorite model of typewriter.
We have instituted the most thorough Covid-19 protocol in the industry. We deep clean, sanitize and disinfect between each guest. We also "rest" the cabin where possible between each stay for between 24 and 72 hours. See our included protocol details in this listing.
With nine windows and one skylight, there is great natural light throughout the little cabin.
Many of our guests ache for a connection with nature (with high thread count sheets), reconnection with each other, and permission to come to a full stop for deep rest.
Seagulls and fog greet you when you rise. The grounds of the property are planted with a variety of native and boreal flowering plants, flowering shrubs and fruit trees. It is a garden like setting with various perennial, annual, and produce plantings.
This is simply a spectacular location right in the heart of Grand Marais very close to the harbor- yet still private and relatively quiet compared almost anywhere else in bustling town of Grand Marais. We are not on a busy street or highway 61, but make now mistake about it, you are in the small town buzz.
The outdoor space has a balanced blend of sun and shade, functionality and whimsicality. This is a space intended as an exclusive retreat from the rigors of small town life. It is designed so that you can be as private as your vacation requires. Dense schrubs and tall fences ensure your own seclusion.
Visitors are encouraged to flag down the owners if you see them.
