Ever fantasize about living on the north shore in a small artist community? This is the perfect place to experience the simple pleasures of small town living. Live the dream on your vacation at Robin's Nest, a cozy little 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, single story home, located on a residential street, nestled in the quaint Grand Marais community.
This cabin is walking distance to the Grand Marais Harbor, Angry Trout Cafe, The North House Folk School (see specials page), The Grand Marais Art Colony, and all of the ma and pa stores and restaurants that make Grand Marais unique. The cabin is roomy and fresh with a large deck for relaxing and enjoying quality family time.
If it is an adventure you seek, consider Robin's Nest your base camp for your next getaway. Head down the shore 10 miles to Cascade State Park where you will find a beautiful waterfall after a short, easy hike. Up for more of a challenge? Just head 15 miles up the shore to Judge C.R. Magney State Park for a 1+ mile hike, including several flights of stairs, to view the mysterious Devil's Kettle waterfall. Here, half of the Brule River flows down a typical waterfall and out into Lake Superior. The other half goes into a mysterious hole and disappears and no one knows where it goes! Add in miles and miles of hiking, biking, skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling trails and you will find adventure all year long during your stay at Robin's Nest.
At the end of the day grab a bite to eat and bring it home so you can sit on the deck and watch the happenings around town. Say hello to locals and visitors alike and feel like you truly belong in this beautiful little town.
Dogs are welcome with prior approval. 2 dog maximum. Cats are not allowed.

You guys do a great job with the site and email communication. Someone even called as I had put in the original booking about getting info for an easy quick check in since we were getting late.
Location was very close to town for us to walk to dinner, shops, etc.
I liked the ramp to the deck in front as my child is disabled so was able to wheel her into the house. The deck out front was perfect for us to eat out front as weather was perfect with the 2 adorondack chairs, bistro table/chair set.
Overall the house was clean and had the all the amenities that we needed for 3 adults and a toddler. I liked having the washer and dryer as we did have to use during our short stay. Appliances all worked well and had a well stock kitchen for our short stay.
It's an older house but was pleasantly surprised at how well the heater quickly heated the house when we got in late (10pm). For being a last minute plan to come it was a great option for the price.

Very responsive to our questions! See above... they sent an email to check on us right after check in.
Great location - easy to walk to town or around the neighbourhood. Darling house. Quiet even tho it's very close to the main road into town. Clean as a whistle. Almost fully stocked kitchen. Great water pressure. Very comfortable king sized bed. Really enjoyed using the fireplace!

We liked the roominess of the living room and the amount of counter space in the kitchen. The kitchen had everything we needed. The location was great. We have been in the Grand Marais many times, but never stayed in town before. On the minus side - the bathroom is really small and the furnace vents are really loud.

Staff was really gracious to allow us to enter the home early. We had unexpected arrival time from traveling family and we would have been very uncomfortable without the warmth and comfort of Robin's Nest available to us. Thank you.
The house is charming, the fireplace really great.

Loved the location, the home, and the cleanliness. Loved that they accepted dogs. A larger saut pan and sharper knives would have been helpful for cooking.

Everything was great! We usually stay Croftville Road, but had an extra person join us just a month before we were to come. We called Cascade and to see if another place could be had, and Robins nest came up. We were able to change locations without any hassel or delays. What a gift. Thank you for your help. I prefer the quiet on Croftville Rd and the lake being close, but Robins Nest was a beautiful alternative. We were all taking classes at the Art Colony, so being close was an advantage. The night light that automatically came on when we came home late was a real gift. The only thing that could have been nice would be overhead lights in the bedrooms and the living room.
Two of us are signed up for classes again next year, and have booked our usual cabin on Croftville Rd.
I have been going through Cascade for at least 20 years to get housing in Grand Marais and have always enjoyed the ease of finding just the right place. Everyone there is so friendly and helpful. You are truly appreciated!

Home very nice. Location great, couldn't be more convenient to the North House Folk School. Only suggestion, would be nice to provide a humidifier, at least in winter.

The home was comfortable and had all the basic necessities, except for a small frying pan, which I realize is a bit nit-picky. We loved being able to walk everywhere. That was a big plus. The deck was great when the mosquitoes weren't out.

We loved the Robin's Nest, a pleasant, comfortable home, perfectly located for our weekend of activities at North House Folk School. When we arrived, we found the house immaculately clean, warm, and welcoming. Our only wish is that the living room and bedrooms had better lighting, especially for the longer winter evenings.
