Have you checked with VRBO?

Also almost any of the lodges have cabins that could fit that many people.

Are you looking for in town? Or can you be a distance away?

What dates are you looking for?

We stay at Caribou Highlands in Lutsen. We like the location better than Grand Marais as it more in the middle of many activities and still only 17 miles from Grand Marais. We have 13 and get a 4 bedroom. There is also a sofa sleeper in the basement. You can reserve directly from Caribou Highlands or from the VRBO website which is less expensive.

Vrbo is a good idea. Devil Track Lodge has cabins and lake homes.

Vrbo is awesome...and even if a place doesn't say they have enough beds for what your seeking on it you might give them a call (as some have different bedroom configurations that can happen or know of a larger place they could recommend).

Also any of the bigger resorts out in Lutsen have units that would extend to fit that many people (make reservations now though!).

Check out Cascade Superior Vaction Rentals in Lutsen. They have a variety of vacation homes on Lake Superior, some of which are in Grand Marais. The homes are privately owned and rented through this agency. We've tried several through the years and been very happy with them.

12 is going to be pushing it for a lot of places. You are probably going to need 2 places near each other. Are you planning to stay on the shore or are you ok with going inland a bit. If you're going to be in town, check out the Easy Bay condos...they have a lot of options for different group sizes. Otherwise, if you want to drive over the hill about 15 minutes, Devils Track Resort has some really nice lakehomes and 2 of them would fit your group. It's a nice location to explore up the trail, do some fishing, run into town for dinner, or just sit and read a book with the northwoods as a background. We've gone up with big family groups a lot. Feel free to PM me if you need more ideas.
