A rare find - an actual bookstore! Charming place right on the lake in this cute northern MN town; perfect place to go after lunch (Angry Trout is the best restaurant in the area). Nice staff.

When we visit Grand Marais, we always visit the Drury Lane Bookstore. A locally owned store, it offers something for all readers, including children. Have questions, they always are helpful. It's warm, cozy and inviting. There's something for everybody!
