Northern Lights Cottage is an adorable, remodeled cottage located near Grand Marais Harbor.

This is a great location if you are taking a class at the Grand Marais Art Colony or North House Folk School, as both are within walking distance and the walk is a lovely one with Lake Superior as your back drop. Come home and enjoy the nice backyard with room for games and a fire pit for roasting s'mores under the starry sky.

This was our third stay at Northern Lights Cottage. For the most part, everything was fine, but did experience a slow-running bath tub drain and bathroom sink drain. We like staying here because most of our family is at the camp ground and it's close enough for us to participate in doings with them as well.

We love staying at Northern Lights Cottage. We have been there many times and it has always been welcoming, clean, cozy and homey. It is a great getaway and just walking distance from Grand Marais. We go hiking up the Gunflint Trail and end our day with a home cooked meal, relaxing fire and a comfortable bed. its great that we can bring our Golden Retrievers with. After a day of hiking they can just hang out with us and watch a movie.

The cabin was very nice, clean, and spacious. I really loved that dogs are very welcome there, they had dog dishes and little towels to wipe their feet off. The back yard was very spacious with a nice fire pit. The cabin is located very close to hwy 61, but it's a nice short walk to town.

The Northern Lights cottage was extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean.. The location is conveniently close to Grand Marais business district. It is pet friendly!! Being next to the highway there was some noticeable traffic noise, especially from trucks going up the hill.

Everything was perfect! The amenities are fantastic and the cabin is so welcoming. We appreciated the little things like having clean towels, toilet paper, dish soap, and suggestions on what to do in town. This is our second time staying here and we plan to come back and make it a yearly tradition! Thanks for a great vacation!

The Northern Lights cottage was a great experience, convenient and quiet. We'd probably stay again if the cute little blue cottage we had in 2015 isn't available. Lack of TV to keep up with news (as a former reporter) was a challenge for me but also forced relaxation. We also rented a movie for our final night. It would be a good idea to put something noticeable - a flag, a big Lake Superior rock, a bright post - at the Highway 61 entrance. We missed it on our first try and then had to learn to slow and give early warning to the drivers behind us each time we turned into the hidden driveway. And with all the good food in Grand Marais, a scale would be a nice addition. Loved the experience and enjoyed the cottage.

Very nice, clean cabin. Nicest place we have stayed in over 30 years of coming up too the North Shore. Good location and nice and quiet. Your should include a map for the location of the garbage/recycling center in your checkin email.

The Grand Marais cabin was great! It's very close to the center of town, can walk to it in 5 mintues. The cabin itself was very updated and nice inside. It has all of the amenities of a house. The only minor minor thing was no cable or antenna for the tv and the WiFi didn't work. You could connect to it only by the front door and even then it wasn't any faster than 3G. Other than that, everything was great. The backyard has a nice big fire pit with good firewood included. There are nice wooden chairs and table by it as well.

The cabin was clean, welcoming and set in a perfect location, walking distance to town. We so appreciated how well stocked everything was- including firewood! It's like they thought of everything. Check in and out was super easy, including the directions to the cabin and the office. We came up for a long weekend for a mini honeymoon and it was everything we wanted. We loved this place so much we want to make this a yearly tradition! The only things that surprised us was that it was a shared backyard and a shared property. It wasn't a big deal at all (the owners were not there and even if they were, it would have been cool) but we were not expecting that. The pictures made it look like a private property and not right off the highway.

Nice location, easy walk into town. We had 2 dogs so was great to find a place that was pet friendly. Nice to have a yard to play ball with the dogs. Close to the municipal campground too so we could walk the dogs around that area. The cabin is basic but clean and comfortable. It was pretty cool when we got there but it heated up quickly. Liked best: good location and yard. Suggestions: would be great to add a dishwasher if there was space, also the bath tub drained a little slowly.

Everything about this cottage was perfect. It's a cozy little getaway that's walking distance from much of the fun Grand Marais has to offer and driving distance from the fun of the surrounding area. It's fully stocked with everything needed to feel at home and the fact that it's dog-friendly is such a super bonus. Absolutely loved my time there and can't wait to return.

My only suggestion would be to add a fan to the amenities or to let people know that they should bring their own (I almost did!). I know this has been an odd weather year and fans aren't usually needed that far north, but it was a little humid and toasty our first night. A fan would have been helpful. ***Thanks for your great review of Northern Lights Cottage. We will get a fan for the property - thanks for letting us know!! - Cascade Vacation Rentals ***

Fantastic home. Very comfortable, cute and relaxing. Love the big back yard!! We played some lawn games and had more than enough room. The fire area was wonderful as well. It appeared to be very dog friendly. We wish we would have brought ours. They would have loved it too.
