Guest Reviews of Northern Lights Cottage

Grand Marais , MN

The Northern Lights cottage was cute and well-maintained

Review by Matthew J
The Northern Lights cottage was cute and well-maintained. It was a good location, within walking distance of downtown Grand Marais. Please bring back the linens. There is not a greater risk of COVID spread from linens than other surfaces. Also, hotels have shown it is possible to change linens without COVID spread.
4 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:

Hi Matthew- glad you enjoyed Northern Lights Cottage! Regarding the linens- they are coming back! Removing linens was not due to COVID-19 transmission. Rather, the pandemic caused a labor shortage and the laundry facilities couldn't be staffed. A major linen delivery service in the area was ceased, as well. Several lodges and resorts were affected by this. As a result, Cascade Vacation Rentals and Cascade Lodge have teamed up to build a new commercial laundry facility for hotels and lodges right in Grand Marais! The project broke ground in August and will be open soon. Timeline TBD. But once it happens, we will be providing linens again!
