“North House Fok School”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

We went to the cooking class at Chez Jude through North House Folk. We learned a lot and the owner was wonderful. We stayed overnight in a hotel. Can't say enough about our trip.

“This is a magical place with great people, great classes and lots of fun”
Reviewed August 22, 2011

Took a class here recently. It was wonderful! The campus is right on the harbor and everyone is super nice! It was a beautiful weekend and we didn't want to leave. This place can really give you a new appreciation of Northerm MN and the North Shore. The classes are geared to the area and the instructors are top notch. Am definitely going again!

“Wooden Boat Show and Summer Solstice Festival”
Reviewed June 21, 2010

We visited Grand Marais ironically during the Wooden Boat Show and Summer Solstice Festival. The enoyed the viewing of about a dozen wooden canoes and sail boats, the chowder experience and the night sail. Easy to access and wonderful staff make sure to visit at least once! The fish market next store is wonderful as well.
