About this home

The Mökki Cottage is an excellent home base from which to explore and enjoy Grand Marais - whether that’s summer festivals, fall colors, fat biking or nordic skiing. Located only steps away from the harbor, this quaint home offers a rural feel while being within minutes to restaurants, cafes, pubs, shops, the North House Folk School, the Art Colony, and so much more.


The space

This cozy house has great curb appeal with its colorful and cheery Scandinavian design. Its warm interior finish has preserved some of the original 1938 construction such as maple hardwood flooring throughout.



The home offers a nice balance of natural light through plentiful windows while still offering privacy from the lovely wooded property. The raised bed garden, wildflowers, clover ground cover, yellow roses, and mountain ash trees fill the yard giving it a wonderfully wild and natural feel.



The home has a cafe/booth style eating nook with wrap-around windows…perfect for quaint dinners or for reading and writing.



The galley style kitchen has a bar stool seating area; ideal for hanging out during meal preparation or simply for sipping your morning coffee.



Sit back in the open concept living room or in the summer, relax on the lovely front porch in a comfy hanging chair.



A double pull-out couch with deluxe memory foam and fiber mattress topper is available for additional guests.



Guest access

As guests, you'll have private access to the entire house for the duration of your stay.



Neighborhood overview

A quaint, walkable area, the cabin is nestled just across from the local library and one street away from lake Superior and the old Gunflint Trail road.



Getting around

The beauty of this house lies not only in its charm, but also in its accessible location. Shops, restaurants and the beach are just a short walk from the cabin. You can head up the Gunflint Trail with access to the boundary waters by car just minutes from the house.

    Cute and cozy

    Would have liked to be able to use the gas stove for ambiance in the blustery wet weather. Never did figure that out. Coffee pot gave metallic taste to coffee .

    hear the lake

    Great location a block off 61 with the harbor just beyond that. When the surf is running, you hear them. Clean and cozy lodging...

    Sweet cottage in the middle of Grand Marais.

    From excellent and quick communication with the manager, Stevie to the quaint comfort of the cottage, to eating freshly picked lettuce for dinner from the raised gardens out front the stay couldn’t have been better

    Comfortable, Close to Town - Relaxing

    Seriously - no need to drive to Angry Trout, Sven & Ole’s, Gunflint Lodge or the liquor store~ Hike Artists’ Point...etc - super simple base camp - great not to over think it~

    So great! It was exactly what we expected, and then some. The space is lovely, the location can’t be beat, and we can’t wait to come back.

    Cozy and a great location

    The Mokki Cottage is adorable, with brightly painted trim in and out, and many little touches such as numerous shelves and hooks for the many things we brought. We cooked several excellent meals in the kitchen, LOVED the sunken breakfast nook, and enjoyed the gas fireplace very much. Even though visiting in the middle of winter, the cottage was toasty warm. Extra points for being around the corner from Voyageur Brewing! Will definately stay there again. Can't wait!

    nice little place for two

    Our only issue would be with the very small electric hot water tank. We had to space our showers apart enough for one of us not to run out. Otherwise, we had a really nice 4 days / 3 nights.

    Great property and location. Everything was clean and comfortable. The bedding was great with the down comforter. The kitchen had everything we needed. It’s nice to be right in town but it was still quiet and peaceful. We would definitely stay again. Can’t wait for our next visit. Thanks for everything.

    The cottage was very cozy

    It has everything you need. A bed to sleep in a cozy fireplace in the living room and there was a small bear kitty corner from our from door. He was eating someone's fallen apples. You're right on the edge of town, but you feel like your out in the wilderness.

    Peaceful rest.

    My two grown kids and I hiked from the Northern terminus of the Superior Hiking Trail to this beautiful cottage. It was perfect in every way. Very clean and it had all the amenities we needed. I would absolutely come back for a longer stay.
