Always a treat

Love this spot. Have stayed 4 or 5 times now and it's as clean and updated as it was in year 1. Great location for town or as a jumping off point for the area. Just don't tell too many people - I want to keep some times available for us to rent it! :)

A cozy place

oneOeight is a cozy, clean and thoughtfully designed place. It is spacious with windows that open to fresh breeze from the lake. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal or make breakfast. It is centrally located; the Grand Marais Art Colony, North House Folk School and the lake are all within a short walk away. It is a perfect home away from home. Linda is wonderful and welcoming!--and I am looking forward to staying here again the next time I am in town.

Great Little Cottage

We wished we had booked longer than a 2 day stay. The cottage is very cute and super clean. Checking in was no hassle at all with code given ahead of time. It has everything a person needs although we only used the fridge & coffee pot. Has a cute sitting area in the back yard but really no view but that was ok. The cottage has off the street parking and is within walking distance to everything downtown. We even saw the fireworks from the harbor at this cottage. There is no a/c so next time we will bring a fan.

Outstanding and centrally located. Walk to everything in Grand Marais

Immaculate and well-designed. A spare Scandinavian aesthetic with quality crafted furniture made by the owner, as well as gallery-quality woodblock prints by the owners' sons. Very quiet, but in the middle of everything. Park you car and leave it. Or drive 10 minutes to fantastic hiking and views of the northern lights and the harbor. Exceptionally well-equipped and organized. Each time I needed something, whether it was a flashlight, a cheese grater or extra blanket, just a moment of searching yielded what I needed. Terrific WIFI, so did not miss a radio or TV with my laptop along. Great water pressure, new bathroom and kitchen fixtures and appliances. Comfortable furniture, great bed and fresh new towels and bedding. Well well-equipped kitchen with some staples like salt, pepper and cooking oil. Very convenient to NHFS for students. If the Hwy 61 reconstruction project is going on when you are considering booking, don't be concerned. A simple detour gets you to 108, and I wasn't disturbed by any noise from the work at all. This would be a great place for a longer term stay but I was only there 3 nights. The owners were attentive but not intrusive. Very much worth the price.

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.

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!

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!

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.
