I'm not sure what happened with other people and why there was negative reviews. Our cabin was clean, smelled clean and comfy. When I reserved the cabin, I had only the expectations of a nice cabin-not a suite. And I got just that. The price was right on the money as well. It's not luxurious by any means, just simple...

We stayed in Motel Room #1 and I was pleasantly surprised at how roomy it was. Everything was clean but very basic and a little worn.

Imagine a cabin that has... More

Sawtooth Cabins and Motel is very reasonably priced and wonderfully located in Grand Marais MN. The cabins are clean and comfy (not fancy, but homey). Our two families had 9 teenagers along and they had room to sprawl out like teens do. We did a lot of cooking and appreciated the Weber kettle that was available plus the large amount... More

The location of the cabins is great, walking distance to the Artist point, world' best donuts. It offers a nice view of the Lake superior shoreline, the people who run this place is nice and friendly and always there to answer questions.
