Grand Vu is a classic Lake Superior cottage, just steps away from the water, with a lovely sense of privacy. The home has fabulous views of Lake Superior inside and an expansive cobblestone beach, perfect for skipping rocks and roasting marshmallows by a bonfire. Located on the highly desirable Cascade Beach Road just 10 minutes from downtown Lutsen, MN. You can even see the Grand Marais Coast Guard Station from the beach and are just 10 minutes from the picturesque town itself.
Grand VU is a two bedroom, one bath home all on one level with relatively easy access from the parking area. The beach area is accessible down a flight of stairs with a handrail, making it easy access for most. Come and enjoy the gas fireplace and well-appointed home on your next North Shore vacation.
The location of Grand Vu is its biggest highlight, and we're not just talking about its proximity to Lake Superior! The Lutsen area offers everything from miles of hiking and biking trails to the Lutsen Mountain Ski Recreation Area which features an alpine slide and scenic gondola to the summit of Moose Mountain during the summer months. From there you can enjoy breathtaking views of Lake Superior- a must-do during leaf change season in the fall. Cascade State Park is just a couple of miles away and features a gorgeous waterfall after a short, easy hike, plus a restaurant and bar. Take a day trip up to Grand Marais, about 15 miles away, and enjoy the many locally owned, unique shops and restaurants that attract thousands of visitors each year. So whether your plans for visiting the northwoods was to relax or to find an adventure, Grand Vu is a great base camp for everything you could want to do being just a short drive away.
At the end of your day, come home and start fire up the gas fireplace or get a bonfire going on the beach. Relax with the sounds of Lake Superior lapping against the shoreline, birds in the trees, and your friends and family nearby.

Location was perfect. views and privacy were fabulous. The cabin (Grand Vu) could use some shelves in bathroom and bigger coffee mug (for us Norwegians lol) Everything was just wonderful, so that's the only improvements I can think of. I love the easy, simple and fast check in and out, the web site is great for selecting a place. The directions are precise.

We loved our stay at Grand Vu. The home is comfortable with astounding views from the huge windows and so close to the water's edge. We're big readers so appreciated the very comfortable love seats in the living room plus being able to see the water's edge with wave action etc. right from those seats - very unusual. We loved the deck and the beach also and spent many hours there. The bed was wonderfully comfortable too. We also loved the location on the Cascade Beach Road, close to Grand Marais for restaurants and live music but so quiet and private too. It was very clean with all the kitchen equipment we needed. We come up to the North Shore several times a year and will definitely be back to Grand Vu.

Least was the weather, but I guess that is out of your control! lol Location - proximity to the lake was amazing, last time I rented I was a mile from Grand Marais and that was a little easier to run into town if you just wanted a doughnut than this location. Cabin was so clean, smelled good, comfortable, well-stocked cookware. The cabin had some work done on the gas fireplace and CVR checked in with us and were so helpful in other ways.

Everything about the location was wonderful, and the service was outstanding. The only issue, and one that was likely related to the long winter we experiences, was that the firewood was still quite wet.
