Guest access
You will have the whole place to yourself!

The first bedroom, which we call "North Shore Nest," has a queen bed, lounge chairs, and features local artwork.

The second bedroom, or the "Zen Room," has a colorful hippie flair, also with a queen bed, and has an ensuite full bathroom.

The third bedroom, or "Reader's Retreat", doubles as a perfect reading/writing room, and the futon can be pulled out as a double bed.

The second bathroom has an over-sized shower/tub - big enough for two!

The sun porch is our favorite room in the house! Large open area with bamboo flooring, wicker furniture, large windows, and wide views. Bring your wine and enjoy a sunset, practice yoga, or write some poetry, if you feel so inclined!

The kitchen has plenty of counter space and standard appliances. Attached is the dining area, as well as the living room (which has a TV with DVD/Blu-Ray player and Roku streaming device set up).

You are also free to explore our 5 acres! We have gardens and a small pond in back. There is also an outdoor deck with patio furniture, a charcoal BBQ grill (bring your own charcoal), and an outdoor firepit (bring your own firewood, check burning conditions).

Other things to note
Please note that though the house is single-level, there is a short flight of exterior stairs up to the front door.

We are off a private gravel road, thick in the woods just beyond the ridge overlooking Grand Marais. Is is very quiet and peaceful, which makes for great strolls!

Greetings! We are Rae and Stephen, a couple from Grand Marais, MN, who love good books, good tea, and (of course) good travels! Together we've visited 19 countries and counting, and love to connect with other travelers both on our own adventures and at our home in northern Minnesota. "Caledonia" is an ancient term used sometimes to refer to Scotland, and we named our house as such because of our love of Scotland; in particular, it was while we were hiking in Scotland that we realized that we wanted to someday own our own home where we could host travelers. Fast forward to today and we're doing just that! Some highlights from our past trips include camping and hiking Switzerland's Alpine Pass Route, living off-grid on a succulent farm in Hawaii, exploring Nepal's Annapurna region, experiencing a full autumn in Oxford, and helping save a sheep in Ireland's Dingle Peninsula. We're happy to have found a home on Lake Superior's North Shore, and love the natural beauty, inspiration, and creativity of this special place. In particular we like hiking the Superior Hiking trail, canoeing the many nearby lakes, and snowshoeing with our retired sled dog, Leif. When not traveling, we can be found dabbling in foreign languages, reading good books, dancing ballet, and perhaps even juggling. We believe in positive attitudes, open hearts, and friendly company. Notably, we are especially fond of writing and are working on some novels of our own (you can see some of our life musings if you want at our blogs, "northernwords" and "notwthhaste").

During your stay
We generally will not be on the property. We do have a tiny house on the property (at a distance from the main house), which we may visit from time-to-time for maintenance visits and such, but will not be bothering you. Rachel, our property manager, will usually be staying in the tiny house. Everything is set up for easy self check-in, but Rachel will be available if a need arises during your stay.
