“Interesting store well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

My wife and I stopped late Feburary on our brief winter vacation in the area. The store was a wide variety of camping, hiking and winter gear. Beyond that some local wares. We had a great time exploring the large store. Prices are not cheap but they do have high quality gear.

Well worth a stop

“Fun place to go and visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Fun to visit while exploring the area w/ a large variety of camping, hiking supplies, clothing, kitschy things and even jewelry, candles, books about the region and even some toys. The building is large, open and just plain fun to walk around. Kind of like a rustic Target in that it has a large variety of items for sale, but Target wishes it could have the atmosphere and personality of this place! Charming retail place.

“An amazing place to shop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

This historic shop sells everything. It's an outfitter, and a gift shop, and a housewares shop, and a jewelry store, and a toy store. It sells clothes and shoes and books. It's an incredible place to browse for things you never knew you needed or wanted. The large wooden building is beautiful and full of charmingly creaking wood and a grand wooden staircase. A must see in Grand Marais. If I won a shopping spree and could choose any store in the world, it might well be this one!

“Everything you need for the outdoors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

Nice friendly staff. Knowledgeable about the area, trails, and the history of the area. Great selection of camping gear and supplies. Its a stop we make every time we are in Grand Marais. Nice selection of books regarding the arrowhead region and Minneasota in general and Lake Superior itself.
