A wonderful home in a private nature setting. It has a large open floor plan, plenty of seating and places to hang out & sleep. Greg was very responsive and the caretaker, Frank, was very friendly and helpful. It's a great location...close to both Lutsen and Grand Marais.

Great get away location, but with easy access to Grand Marais and Lutsen. House is wonderful and comfortable. Greg and Betsy were super easy to work with, which was important as this was our first Airbnb experience. Perfect for families or just adults.

Would highly recommend staying her. Place was clean and very nice. I was impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was with dishes, utensils, etc. Easy to book, easy to check in and overall a great place to stay. We would definitely come back again. We had a family birthday celebration and it worked perfectly.

We had a work retreat at this beautiful home. Secluded and quiet area. Very clean. All amenities are included. I would have given it 5 stars but the second night we were there the caretaker walked in without calling or knocking. Although he was just trying to let us know he was available if we needed anything we felt our privacy was invaded. Other than that it was a great stay and would highly recommend for large groups.

Response from Greg & Betsy:
Megan, our apologies if our caretaker's visit was a surprise. He claims that he knocked loudly several times before entering just enough to yell hello. We have tried to reach you numerous times to no avail. We try our best to make sure you are aware that our caretaker will stop by to answer any questions you have and also to verify the number of guests is within our policy. We have this information in our listing, outlined in red on our information sheet and also made note of this in our emails to you. Our caretaker and ourselves feel bad about your experience and will try to be more clear about this for future renters. Again, our apologies, Greg and Betsy
