Highly Recommend

I fortunately got to meet Linda who was a gracious host and told me about the history of 108. The place is impeccably clean and walking distance to downtown Grand Marais. The wood crafting and cabinet making is top rate as well as the artwork on the walls. All family designed and crafted. Updated bungalow and plenty of indoor lighting. I would make 108 my first choice to stay the next visit to Grand Marais or surrounding areas. Thank you, Linda and Dan,

Serene…and still right in the middle of everything

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at oneOeight. The bungalow was so welcoming and beautiful. The arts and crafts vibe inspired us as we took a North House Folk School class. We found it was thoughtfully designed for travelers and also perfectly located for accessing Grand Marais on foot. It was clean and had everything we needed.

Great stay

oneOeight was a great place to stay. Loved the amazing furniture and creative use of typical "dead" space It was very conveniently located, walking distance to everywhere I wanted to go in town. My only suggestion would be putting in a room darkening shade in the window above the bed as the bedroom was not very dark.

Simply wonderful

Our jaws dropped as soon as we walked into this charming little cottage. It was open and airy and so beautifully decorated. So many North Shore vacation rentals fall victim to tacky moose and buffalo plaid aesthetic. Not 108-- a tasteful Hugge vibe with beautiful craftsmanship and stunning artwork from the owner's family. Communication was stellar and the location doesn't get any better. We can't wait to stay here again! With love from The Flemings

Great Fall Getaway Base!

We had such an enjoyable stay at oneOeight for 4 nights last week! It is as cute as the photos and even cozier feeling! No musty or empty feeling, but instead, it felt like a friend's home, tastefully decorated with just the right amount of northern charm. There were plenty of towels, good heat control, nice blinds on all the windows and clean wood floors with cozy rugs. I highly recommend it for 1 or 2 adults and possible a child or baby. There is an off street parking spot, and the harbor is 2 blocks away, as is grocery store, and various shops and espresso bar is a 5 minute walk.

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.

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.
