About this home

Tamarack House is a cozy, family friendly house on private Lake Superior lot in Hovland, 20 minutes past the amazing town of Grand Marais. The house offers two inviting, comfortable bedrooms upstairs with king and queen beds, one with a designated work space. The downstairs provides a rec room, queen bed and twin over full bunk beds. The upstairs living and dining open to full Lake Superior views - relax and take it all in. The owners enjoy spending time here with their kids and dogs and hope you do the same.

The house provides a wonderful place to relax & take in the big lake, or can be a good base for exploring inland hikes and canoeing - ideally a bit of both! It is equipped with board games & puzzles, art supplies for kids, books for adults & kids & two TVs with Roku’s for access to streaming services. Outside your door there is a beach for all your stone throwing needs. A fire pit is nestled along the shore to take in sunsets and enjoy the scenery. Adequate firewood is provided.

The Arrowhead Trail, which has access to pristine inland lakes is just a couple miles down Hwy 61. Bring your canoe, kayak or fishing boat and go explore! Judge C. Magney State Park is known for the Devils Kettle hike, and farther up Hwy 61 is High Falls, just before the Canadian border. The house is also just 20 min from Grand Marais which is home to an unbeatable harbor, an amazing art community & numerous local shops & restaurants worth checking out.

Two things to note incase they are a must for your party - there is no dishwasher, and drinking / cooking water is provided in a 13 gallon container in the kitchen as well as more downstairs if needed. This is due to the lake draw well the house uses. Running water can be used for showering or doing dishes but can appear slightly yellow/brown due to sediment from the lake.
