“I would highly recommend Hilltop Cabins for your place to stay while in Grand Marais.”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

I totally enjoyed my stay from the minute I arrived until I left to come home. Jeanette, the owner was warm and welcoming. The cabins and rooms each have their own charm and are clean, cozy and comfortable. All have everything you need to enjoy your stay... Excellent beds...TV.. Radio.. Dishes and cookware.... Linens. The light breakfast available was great too. Give them a try... You won't be disappointed.

I really enjoyed my stay Hilltop Cabins. When we arrived, we walked into the office, and there was nobody there, but they had our keys set out for us. We went into our room, the Gone Fishin room, which was very nicely decorated. The room was clean (though there were a few bugs, which didn't bother us, since it was a cabin style setup!). There was a refrigerator and a TV. The wireless internet did not work, though. It freed us up to enjoy the beauty around us! From the gazebo area, you can see beautiful views of Grand Marais and Lake Superior. Compared to our previous stay at a different hotel in Grand Marais, this was great!

We loved our stay at Hilltop Cabins! Moose Cabin was spotless, very well done and fully stocked with everything we needed. The bed was comfy and the linens were great. Loved having a fireplace (gas) and outdoor balcony porch with great lake view. We didn't eat there, but breakfast looked great. Owner was accommodating and helpful with tips and things to do, and was very friendly. We got reservations at the last minute, thankfully, and we were sure happy we went. Only minor suggestion for owner would be to have cleaning wipes or fantastic, etc under counter for guests to wipe table or counters with...minor, minor detail in a really great stay.

Room Tip: The Moose was great! Log style, cute decor and not overdone. Spiral log staircase going to 2 bedroom...

Two of us stayed in the room named "The Possum." After reading the reviews 1/2 good; 1/2 bad we figured it was worth a shot. Before arriving we decided if it was a clean room with a decent bed, we were fine. Turns out, the room was very clean, but the mattress on the bed was as bad as some of the earlier reviewers had warned! The breakfast was nothing special either. All-in-all it was clean and it worked for us.

Room Tip: Look at the photos of rooms/cabins on-line before you reserve one.

My family stayed in cabin 1, the Loon. The view from the deck of the harbor and Lake Superior was excellent!! The cabin was spotless and the kitchen stocked with glasses, silverware, pots, and some spices/salt and pepper. The beds were very comfortable as was the living area. Our party consisted of 3 couples and the sleeping area were well laid out for us.

After readinh some reviews about the poor internet/cell signal I was expecting not to get much. I got 3 bars of 4G signal which was plenty fast for web browsing and sending pictures. I never tried the wifi.

Breakfasts were tasty although quite limited in selection. The ladies who run the business were super friendly and helpful. Overall, well worth the price!

We stayed there this past weekend and the host was great. The motel room was good for what we paid for it. We got a so-so sleep and the breakfast was homemade and good. A lot of things to do for a "Cabin & Motel" type place.
