“Lovely Place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed the weekend here with my parents in early October. Unfortunately we hit town just as the weather turned ugly. High winds and rain made it unbearable to enjoy the perfect walking location to everything, however still enjoyed watching the crashing waves from the villa. We stayed in Unit 2. perfect view! The fireplace in the master bedroom was a nice surprise. It was clean and appreciated having 2 separate bedrooms with our own bathrooms. Check in was easy, although not the friendliest welcome to town. Check out - the front desk guy was much more friendly. Not much nightlife in Grand Marais - although I realize most people do not travel to the North Shore looking for night life. :-))

My husband and I stayed in Unit 8 with another couple this week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The unit looks very small from the outside, but inside is much more spacious. Both bedrooms have a private bath and queen beds. The only issue we had was the light coming in very early (4:30 or 5) in the morning. Even with the blind closed, it was enough to wake up my husband and our friends in the master suite as well. They ended up buying blindfolds for sleeping which solved the problem. If you are light sensitive, keep that in mind. We enjoyed all of the amenities of the unit. Very nice kitchen, came with most of what you need. Sort of a cross between a hotel and time share in my opinion. Shampoo/lotion was provided, as well as some of the kitchen items like dish soap, paper towels, coffee, etc. There was a dvd player in the unit. We brought our own movies. You can also rent them from a nearby gas station. There's free wifi. We enjoyed the jacuzzi and sauna located in a public area. Generally had it to ourselves which was nice. Loved the spectacular views and morning coffee out on the patio was a highlight. I had binoculars and enjoyed watching for loons and ducks on the lake as well. We were within walking distance to just about everything....grocery store, many restaurants, shops, Artist's Point, parks....the list goes on. It was a little confusing at first to know where to check in, but you do that at the Shoreline Inn across the street and that is also where they have a continental breakfast set up each monring. The manager there was very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will likely return. I also thought it was very reasonably priced.

My husband and I have stayed at Cobblestone Cove Villas on two different vacations to the North Shore. We went with another couple on both trips and all shared 1 townhome. Both times our stay was amazing. The townhouses are newer and beautifully furnished. It was spotless clean and everything was very comfortable. There are two bedrooms upstairs and each have their own walk in closet and full bathroom. The beds are queen sized and very comfy. The master bedroom is a little bit bigger and includes a fireplace, tv and balcony overlooking the Grand Marais harbor. The kitchen is beautiful with granite countertops, ceramic tile and stainless steel appliances. It was pretty well stocked with dishes and cooking essentials. There is a 3rd bathroom on the main level off the living room and kitchen area. The living room has a fireplace and access to a patio area that faces the lake. The lake is very easliy acccessible from the patio door. There is also a whirlpool in the center of the townhome complex that all guests at Cobblestone Cove can use. The whirlpool is large and has a nice view of the lake. Cobblestone is kind of expensive (well worth it if you have the money - like I said, it is Beautiful) during the prime tourist seasons, but if you sign up for their email alerts, they sometimes email you nice offers such as stay 2 nights get 3rd half off or 25% off your stay. And also if you plan your trip for early spring (april/early may) or late fall (after the peak of the fall color) the nightly rate is usually a lot cheaper than summer/fall color season. We LOVED it here and will stay again!

We stayed here at the end of March 2012, having seen the hotel on our previous trip to Grand Marais in summer 2011. There are several hotels in Grand Marias that overlook Lake Superior and the little harbor, so you have a lot of options to choose from...and I'd definitely suggest looking into this place. We stayed in the end unit (#10, I think it was) which was good because some of the other units have pine trees blocking their view of the lighthouse and harbor. For lack of a better way to describe it, it's a 2+ story condo/townhouse. The unit we were in had very modern styling and conveniences, including a fireplace and TV with DVD player (which was nice because we'd brought our own movies along). The master bedroom upstairs had a fireplace in it that made for a very cozy night's sleep, and with the huge floor to ceiling windows, we also got to fall asleep to the sight of bright twinkling stars. Loved the shower--good water pressure and nice and hot! A very short (1 minute) walk out the sliding glass door and you're on one of the best stone skipping beaches in the world! And because the town is compact, this hotel is a 5 minute (or less) walk from everything--bars, restaurants, souvenir and craft shops, a grocery store, and--best of all--Sven & Ole's Pizza (if you come to Grand Marais and DON'T eat at S&O's....well, you've missed out on the best thing in town).

Room Tip: Ask for a room that isn't blocked (partially or mostly) by pine trees....they might try to tell...

I stayed here with my husband, our 2 kids, my sister and mom. We loved the villa and found it to be very spacious for our group. We stayed in unit # 4.
The views are incredible and just a short walk to artists point. I hope to go back again next year. Would make a great couples weekend location too!

Room Tip: All the villas looked very nice and all right on the water.

This was an amazing property to have, especially for our honeymoon! It was large, with a full and nicely equipped kitchen, an large spa which we had to ourselves, and was within a few minutes walk of everything in town. Plus, it was just about 3 meters from the water, every unit overlooks the lake, and the master suite has huge, two-story windows which let you sleep and wake to the sight and sounds of Superior and sky! This was really incredible! The TV/DVD combo in each room, the loft, and the living room was a nice touch we didn't use much, but the two fireplaces, one in the main room and one in the master suite, were definitely a nice, romantic touch. We were in unit 4, which seemed to be the best, as it was next to the spa, and had the great pine trees which framed the view on the lakeside, giving you both an open, clear view of the water while providing privacy from the neighboring units.

Room Tip: Ask for #4!

My parents had stayed here last year and recommended it to me. Boy, were they right. A 2 BR/ # Bath condo right next to the point in downtown Grand Marais. It was huge and very nicely laid out. I have nothing bad to say and can't wait to go back this summer for a longer stay.
