Reviewed 30 July 2011

We discovered Nelson's earlier this year and returned for a second time last week. The accommodations are very nice, comfortable and immaculate! The hosts are friendly and helpful. Nelson's is within walking distance of downtown Grand Marais and has a lovely view of Lake Superior. The Lake breezes and a couple of fans kept us cool at night during the unusual heatwave. We look forward to returning next year.

Reviewed 8 May 2007

Went to Nelson's June23-25 in 2006. We are used to pitching a tent in a state park on the North Shore, so the bed, indoor plumbing and stove were great amenities. This place was so cute and convenient, it made our trip ten times more enjoyable. There is a walking path that goes down the bay in Grand Marais, about a five minute walk. Each cabin also has a Weber grill outside it.

What wonderful hospitality! Extremely well kept cabins with franklin fireplaces and kitchenettes. Great for longer family vacations as you can go to the local grocery store and cook your own meals. Rates very reasonable! Tom and Patty and their two daughters are wonderful hosts! Campfires at night for all to attend, some cabins with great views of Lake Superior. Now that the new Hwy 61 is done there is a walking path into downtown. Also need to visit Dockside fish market and get some local fish favorites - great gifts also. You will not find a better place to stay (if you're looking for pools and all that stuff - this is not the place). You will make friends for life here. P.S. Make sure to call ahead well in advance as they have many longtime, loyal customers who return year after year!
