Resorts in Grand Marais, Minnesota
Many people who go to Minnesota's North Shore don't consider their trip complete until they have visited Grand Marais, which is located in the far northeastern tip of the state. The city is built upon the shoreline of Lake Superior, so water sports like canoeing and kayaking are popular in the area, and it is connected to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness via the Gunflint Trail, which begins in Grand Marais. Visitors to the city often choose to stay at one of its resorts.

The cabins all have full kitchens, while the motel units each have a microwave and refrigerator.

Guests at Anderson's North Shore Resort have the option of staying in a cabin that's right on the Lake Superior Shoreline or of staying in one that is set up higher and offers stunning views of the lake. Half of the resort's eight cabins are on the water, while the other half sit on higher ground. Each of the cabins, which can accommodate from two to six people, have fully equipped kitchens and decks.
