    About this property

    Music Makers Cottage

    Welcome to the Music Maker. All the charm and lots of comfort, plus outdoor furniture too! This cute, comfortable cottage is located on Coast Guard Point (f/k/a Canal Street), the peninsula that forms the northwestern edge of breath taking Grand Marais Harbor. Take a stroll right out the back door to Agate Beach which is a short walk across the small sandy dunes. Cool off in the crisp clear waters of Lake Superior. Later walk or ride your bikes into town for dinner, ice cream or a little shopping. Then head back to your beach retreat and take in one of our famous Lake Superior Sunsets. Verizon phone service is recommended if you want to use data. You can also get Internet access at more of the businesses and restaurants in town. So pack your summer gear (Don't forget the sun screen!) and head for a relaxing stay at the Music Makers Cottage in beautiful Grand Marais. This cottage is not a winter rental...sorry. Spring, Summer and Fall only. Keywords: cottage

    Perfect cottage on Lake Superior!

    This was our second stay at Music Makers cottage and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The cottage is in a perfect location in Grand Marais......very close to town (approx 0.7 mile) which is a nice short walk or even shorter car ride. The cottage is on Lake Superior but you do have to walk a short 5 minute walk thru the sand dunes to get to the water and shoreline. I personally preferred this arrangement as opposed to staying on the bay side. The cottage is clean, very well equipped with everything you would need. We came prepared but it was nice that the basic soaps and tolietries were there. We love the gas fireplace stove.......takes the chill off on cool evenings and just adds to the coziness of Music Makers. There are plenty of towels/linens and even a washer and dryer if needed. There are lots of games/books/cards which were nice for some family time together in the evening. There is a TV with satellite service and wi-fi was available. Honestly Music Makers was very well-equipped with everything you would need. The only thing that I could think of that would have been nice would be if there was a propane BBQ grill. There is a charcoal grill......but a propane grill would have been nice. Susan's place is very clean, well-equipped, perfect location, and very reasonably priced! We would definitely stay again! Music Makers is Cozy and very peaceful.....I feel so relaxed and at peace when I stay here! Thanks Susan for having us!

    Great Get Away

    This cottage is nicely set away from all the hubbub, with a beautiful view of the low dunes down to the lake. It is clean and well equipped. Susan is very helpful in terms of providing information about the cottage and about the activities available in the area.If you would like some solitude and "away time" this is the place! Grand Marais is small and quiet and has the basics covered as far as what you might need during your stay as far as food, gas, and simple restaurant fare. It is also situated right at the Eastern edge of Picture Rocks National Shoreline and so there is easy access into the park and all its wonderful sights and trails.


    Not quite what we expected

    We have rented quite a few cabins/cottages for our vacations over the years, and this by far was the one that disappointed us the most. The pictures are somewhat misleading, as the decor can best be described as low-end garage sale, as were the kitchen utensils, pots and pans, dishes, etc. That being said, the cottage had comfortable beds, and a lovely gas firestove that kept us warm and toasty on some cool and windy evenings. It also has access to a lovely beach, although you cannot see the lake from the cottage (it's a wee bit of a hike through the dunes). The small town of Grand Marais was kind of shutting down for the season, so it was lovely not have have crowds or waits for a table at the two small bars/restaurants. It was an easy drive into Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, and also Seney National Wildlife Refuge, and we did enjoy ourselves. This cottage could really be cute with just a little bit of a "home makeover".
