About Sandy Beach

Sandy Beach is a truly unique one-room rustic cabin located on a private Lake Superior beach near Grand Marais, Minnesota and Hovland, Minnesota. The cabin itself includes a built-in bunk bed, sofa sleeper, eating table, and reading area. Sandy beach is perfect for two, cozy for four. It is a super clean cabin. It has a propane gas lantern and two-burner stove (no oven) and guests must bring their own water, cooler, ice, etc. Guests bring their own linens (likely sleeping bags) and towels and toiletries and clean unit upon departure for the next guests. There is no housekeeping, electricity, or running water, and there are minimal supplies (garbage bags, matches, etc.). Firewood is provided.

There is no phone, television, or WiFi. There is, however a quirky pink single seater outhouse. This cabin is perfect for guests who can appreciate the solitude and beauty of the Northern Minnesota wilderness. If you are looking to "Truly Escape"... this is the place. With no electricity and a small cabin nestled between mature trees and the Lake Superior shoreline, you can easily escape from the hustle and bustle of real-life and truly unplug and get in touch with nature. Enjoy agate hunting, daydreaming,  watching the moon or sunrise, and on occasion, the Northern Lights. Come experience simple living at its finest. You are sure to leave refreshed and relaxed after a few days at quaint Sandy Beach.

Seasonal cabin open April - October.
