Description

Location: Grand Marais

Cascade Vacation Rentals is pleased to offer this unique example of American architecture located on the wild shores of Lake Superior just outside Grand Marais, Minnesota.

Seagull House has a strong connection to the most famous American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, and is an excellent example of Prairie architecture, for which Mr. Wright is known. John Howe, architect of Seagull House, was Mr. Wright's chief draftsman at Taliesin for more than 25 years and designed and built this home, which is now available to rent as part of your North Shore experience.

This 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is located a short drive up the shore of Lake Superior from the quaint lakeside town of Grand Marais.  The unique angled rooms, low-pitched roof, and open interior spaces in this home are staples of the Frank Lloyd Wright prairie-style architecture that John Howe helped make famous back in the 1940s and 50s.  Each room is carefully constructed and designed so that nothing is there by accident.  Every piece of furniture, artwork, and even the knickknacks have been selected to match the design elements intended for the space.  Because of this, many pieces in this home hold great value and it is why we do not recommend this property for families with young children.  

The unique architecture isn't all this home has to offer!  Nestled on a beautiful plot of land against the shores of Lake Superior, you will get to enjoy a private ledgerock shoreline with easy to moderate access so you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the Big Lake.  There is a gas and charcoal grill so cooking a meal outside in the warm summer months won't be an issue no matter what your grilling preference is.  On cold winter nights you can curl up in front of the wood burning fireplace and enjoy a book on John Howe and Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture while sitting in one of their homes!  Large windows take advantage of the Lake Superior views and the well-equipped kitchen allows you to make a delicious home cooked meal.  You'll feel right at home at Seagull house.

The location up the shore from Grand Marais means you have ample amounts of privacy but are also close to everything the North Shore has to offer.  Miles of hiking, biking, snowmobiling, and cross-country ski trails are just a short drive away.  Several state parks are also easy access from this home.  Or head on into Grand Marais and do some shopping at the unique ma and pa shops that make the area so unique.  No chain stores here!  The restaurants are also one of a kind!  You could easily spend a month at Seagull House and still find a new spot to explore and enjoy.

This was a beautiful spot, we did not want to leave! Everything was perfect, we had much more than what we needed. The sound of the lake was calming and hit the spot for tranquility.
