Pincushion Mountain Haus is a light-filled, Scandinavian modern retreat overlooking Grand Marais and Lake Superior. Four upstairs bedrooms and a pull-out couch in the lower level game room sleeps twelve total. The house is very kid and family friendly and has a large indoor sauna for you to enjoy. The property also provides eco-conscious lodging with solar power, natural toiletries, and recycling options for guests. Immerse yourself in the surrounding nature as the house is directly on 25k of hiking, XC ski, and mountain bike trails…immediate access to nature out the front door but only 5 minutes to the charm of Grand Marais.
Grand Marais offers a wide variety of locally owned and operated shops and restaurants for your enjoyment. With the Pincushion Mountain Trail System literally in your backyard, you don't even have to get in your car to access a wide variety of outdoor activities. This location is an outdoor enthusiasts dream come true!
This home and property is tucked into 15 peaceful, forested acres and is footsteps to the pincushion trails. A short hike behind the house leads to trails along Little Devil’s Track river, lovely to explore all year around. It's well stocked with trout for fishing, great for kids to jump across on the rocks (depending on season), and even good for a dip on a hot day. A ten minute drive to Devils Track Lake offers options for swimming, paddling, boating and fishing. A five minute drive brings you right to the heart of Grand Marais (America's coolest small town) and it's a twenty minute drive to Lutsen and great downhill skiing, mountain biking, and hiking.
For those who prefer to relax and rejuvenate during their vacation, you can enjoy Pincushion Mountain Haus' private sauna and plenty of room to relax and unwind. There are games and activities for kids and adults in the house, as well as a wide variety of books. Eat out at one of the many restaurants in the area, or prepare your meal in the comfort of your private kitchen. Get out and explore, or stay in and relax.
Should you choose to venture out, you are only a few miles from several State Parks and Forests as well as the Superior National Forest. Take a drive further up the Gunflint Trail for access to inland lakes, perfect for watersports like canoeing, kayaking, and stand-up paddleboarding.
There are two geodesic domes on the property which are available to rent independently from the house (seasonally- May through October). They are both located down the trail and out of sight from the house- please respect the privacy of these guests when passing by on the trails. Contact us if you're interested in more information on renting the domes!
There is also a private caretaker's apartment attached to the house which is occupied by the house property manager. The house is completely private from this apartment and the house guests have the privacy of the house and yard, but may occasionally see management as they care for the surrounding property. Our property manager will be able to help you if there are any issues that come up during your stay as well.
