About Charlie & Pam Hile
Hello! We're Pam and Charlie Hile and we are IN LOVE with Grand Marais and the North Shore! Firstly we want you to know that we personally manage our own property and that there's no 3rd party or rental company involved. What does this mean to you and why is it important? It means that all communication will be directly with one of us personally and that we're totally invested in your comfort and satisfaction in our "home away from home." We're committed and passionate about our guest's experience! A little bit about who we are. We're couple passionate about family, friends, the outdoors, going on wild adventures and creating meaningful memories. We love to hike, bike, cross country ski, listen to music, enjoy a good cup of coffee in the morning and a great glass of local craft beer at night. We love to watch sunrises, sunsets, the northern lights, rolling waves and wild life. We enjoy people, travel and cultures that are different from our own. We appreciate good conversation with a bit of sarcasm and quick wit thrown in for good measure. We're eager to learn and try new things. We're best friends and we've added the North Shore to the list of things that feed our souls.
Charlie & Pam Hile purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Charlie & Pam Hile chose Grand Marais
Why this property? Because it's right on the shore of the largest freshwater lake in the entire world and sits just 4 miles from the charming town of Grand Marais. We love the big lake and all of its' mysterious moods! The North Shore provides us with a four season playground to do all the things we love to do! There are endless bike, hiking and ski trails with a waterfall around just about every corner. Every morning we wake up to all the colors of a majestic sunrise over the lake without even having to leave our cozy bed. And... besides all of the state parks, forests and wildlife... there's the wonderful, "Coolest Small Town in America" (voted on by the public and named by the NY Times) town of Grand Marais. Grand Marais is a friendly, quaint (yet modern) fishing village that hosts great restaurants, a new brew pub, endless venues for awesome music, a coop grocery store, the North House Folk School (where you can learn just about any skill or craft imaginable or gather as a community to dance, bake bread or sing around a campfire), a diverse art scene and sits right on the shore of Lake Superior. There's a beautiful public beach in town for outdoor concerts, lake gazing or rock skipping with the light house on "Artist's Point" twinkling in the background.
What makes this Condo unique
We chose our condo on the shore of Lake Superior first and foremost because of the stunning, panoramic views of Lake Superior! With over 26' of floor to ceiling windows, you have a view of the big lake from the living room, dining area, kitchen and bedroom. The private patio is perfect for coffee in the morning, a good book and lunch in the afternoon, and your beverage of choice at sun set. Terrace Point is a small and quiet community. The design of our condo was influenced by the works of Frank Lloyd Wright who was famous for bringing the outdoors inside and our condo does just that. Designed in a 5 sided pentagon, the Lake Superior ledge rock fireplace is the center point of the living room and dining area. The kitchen boasts of granite counter tops and beautiful cherrywood cabinets. The bedroom has a comfortable king-sized bed where you can take in the sun rise upon waking in the morning or view the moon shimmering on the lake at night right outside your window . The large bathroom has a slate, jet-powered shower with room for 2 and a large, cedar sauna to relax in. The heated floors (carpet and stone) keep you cozy no matter what the season. Terrace Point 15B is the perfect place to set down your bags and enjoy Lake Superior out the front door and all of Cooke County, the Boundary Waters and the Gunflint Trail right outside the back door.

We loved our stay at this fantastic location!
Property was clean, comfortable, well equipped and the location was perfect! Beautiful view from our condo as well.
Comfortable and scenic
Such an amazing and relaxing location! We couldn't of asked for anything better then this, we didn't want to leave!
Great property and location. A perfect getaway! This our second stay and we won’t stay elsewhere.
What a great experience! Quick response from owner when reserving and on property. This property is right on Lake Superior which makes for great sleeping and a peaceful and private location. It’s beautifully appointed and very comfortable with top of the line fixtures, bedding and kitchen goodies. Lastly the location is perfect. Only 5 mins to central grand marais and 15 mins to
Lutsen. A great Base to explore the north shore or hole up with a good book. Parking is a breeze. This is our second stay at this property and we won’t stay anywhere else in the area. Thanks for everything!
Everything we could have wanted!
Wonderful location, excellent amenities!
I wish it was indicated that the lower level actually required walking down stairs. I picked the lower level so we wouldn't have to do stairs. Also, the TV instructions sucked. All I wanted to do is watch Monday night football and I didn't get anything. Otherwise the place is great and we loved the king sized bed and the fireplace. It was just not our type of place.
We’re so sorry you missed that we have steps leading to our condo. We have it stated at least 3 times in the VRBO/HomeAway written information about our condo as we want to be sure someone who can’s manage stairs doesn’t make the mistake of renting our unit. We also apologize about your not understanding the TV remote instructions, it can be difficult when we’re all used to our own devices. With that being said, we’re happy to hear that you loved the condo and the king size bed and fireplace. Thank you for staying with us!
* INVITE FAMILY OR FRIENDS to share the North Shore experience with you and rent our other condo, Terrace Point 11B, in addition. Terrace Point 11B is also an end unit and offers the same stunning, panoramic view and sits right on the shoreline of Lake Superior! (Property # 729882)
