Plan to stay again!


Exactly as described by owners and reviews! Clean and had everything we needed. Perfect get-a-way place with many options, even during COVID-19, from take out options, patios to eat on, or eat in or shop with masks. We felt very comfortable in so many ways. Speaking of comfortable, the bed was super comfortable which is important for any overnight stay!

Great Stay on the North Shore


We just spent two Peaceful and Relaxing nights in this wonderful accommodation. OneOeight is a clean, comfortable and inviting setting. It was the best part of our trip to Upshore. The bed is comfortable and the cottage has everything you need. You wouldn’t go wrong with this immaculately decorated and “great value” stay!

Perfect place to stay in Grand Marais!


This was my second stay at oneOeight, and I loved it even more! It truly is the perfect place for me to stay when I come to Grand Marais. It's within walking distance to the lake, shops, co-op, and Betsy Bowen's studio! The bungalow is truly a work of art, and I love looking at the built-ins, lovely woodwork throughout the house, and the unique art on the walls. It's also absolutely spotless! I find your place so peaceful and relaxing. After hiking and camping for a few days, I found myself looking forward to a hot shower in the beautiful bathroom and a good night's sleep in the comfortable bed! oneOeight has become part of my annual trip to the North Shore, so I'll be back! It was very nice to meet you in person, Linda! You do such a great job of providing everything a guest could ever need, and I'm grateful that you and Dave have provided such a wonderful place to stay at an affordable price. Thanks so much! Best wishes to you and your family. May we all survive this pandemic and move on to a healthier and happier future!

Excellent escape


108 is a great place to stay when visiting the North Shore. The place was spotless; we felt as if we were the first guests to stay here. Dave is a meticulous craftsman and it shows in every aspect of this quality arts & crafts styled "home." A stocked kitchen lets you prepare any meal your vacation heart desires. Or not! You can walk 5 minutes to any restaurant in Grand Marais. It is all in the family: the beautiful artwork echoes the north shore. Many if not all, are contributions from their sons. Everything about this place is excellent and suggests, "come back!" And we will. Thanks very much!

Delightful Bungalow


This was our second stay at this sweet little house. The decor is simple and beautiful befitting the bungalow style and the built-ins are both lovely and functional. Linda was quick to respond to our queries. The house is an easy walk from every place you want to go in Grand Marais. We love it here!

Perfect place to stay in Grand Marais!


One Oeight was the perfect place to stay during my recent visit to Grand Marais. It is within easy walking distance to everything - the lake, the lighthouse, shops, the Co-op for groceries, and art studios. The bungalow has been beautifully renovated, with custom built-ins, and beautiful woodwork throughout. Added bonuses were the hand made lamps, tables, and the prints hanging in each room. It was like staying in an art gallery! There is no TV, but I didn't miss it at all. There is so much to see and do in Grand Marais, not to mention the hiking possibilities near by, that I was too tired to even think about watching TV. Besides, wifi is available so you can easily stay in touch with the world (should you even want to!). My stay was really relaxing, and I found this place to be very peaceful. I'll definitely be back!!

Great location


We enjoyed a week here while taking classes at North House Folk School. The private off-street parking spot was convenient. We were able to walk everywhere easily. The co-op nearby allowed us to pick up a few groceries we forgot. Easy to prepare breakfast and coffee in the morning. The BBQ grill was a nice bonus and allowed us to enjoy dinner in. The bed was very comfortable and the bedroom had adequate storage. The bathroom was well thought out and had plenty of luxurious towels. We will definitely be back!

Perfect!


This bungalow was the perfect place for our weekend trip to Grand Marais. The location is convenient for Grand Marais and nearby parks, the beds are comfortable, and the kitchen is full of all the utensils and pots you could use. But it's also cozy and comfortable if you want to stay inside for a day. We very much hope to make a return trip and we'll recommend it widely.

We love oneOeight


This wonderful bungalow is barely two blocks from the water of the harbor, so we had fun exploring the shops and harbor as well as ranging out on the trails to see fall colors. The house is recently renovated with great attention to its Arts and Crafts heritage. The furnishings are beautifully crafted by the owner. Everything is clean, comfortable, new. We loved it!

AWESOME


The stay at 108 was wonderful. It more than met our expectations. the simplistic decor was just what was needed as a get-away from the chaos of the world. We loved not having TV and being able to just be together. The house was clean and so so inviting. I would definitely put it high on my list of great places to stay!
