The Tall Pines Yurt in Grand Marais, Minnesota


Boundary Country Trekking's Tall Pines Yurt in Grand Marais, Minnesota

The Tall Pines Yurt is located on the edge of the Boundary Waters near a stand of old growth white pines and on Hooker Lake, named by some comic loggers. Half of the lake is in the Boundary Waters. The Tall Pines, twenty-foot housekeeping yurt, is attractively furnished and is set-up to accommodate up to four people, sleeping on a futon and bunk beds. Additional cots or bunk beds can be brought in for larger groups. The yurt is heated by a wood stove / fireplace, has overhead gas lighting and a camp kitchen with pots, pans, dishes, utensils, cook stove, dining table and chairs. Ask us about making camp coffee. Outside is an attached deck. A firepit, charcoal grill and most importantly, a Finnish sauna are nearby. Outhouse is located near the yurt also.
  

Boundary Country Trekking's Tall Pines Yurt

  

Hooker Lake is a natural environmental lake, requiring a significant setback for any structure. Over the years forest growth has occured around the shore, which has limited the visibility of the lake from the yurt. This lake is slowly turning into a bog and in the summer, it's surrounded by lots of bog flowers. It is a pretty lake, but not suitable for fishing or swimming. Yurters can drive over to the Bed & Breakfast and fish and swim in Little Ollie Lake or portage into a nearby lake.
  

   

During the non-snow months you hike in three hundred feet from the summer parking area. The trail to the yurt connects to some of the finest mountain biking trails in the area. Hiking trails are just out the door and a canoe is provided for your use.

During the winter the yurt is an exclusive silent sports accommodation, accessible by a 1-kilometer ski or snowshoe trek on a groomed trail from the Lace Ski Lake Trail or winter parking area. The eastern trailhead of the Banadad is 2 kilometers away by skis. For the adventuresome skier, Boundary Country Trekking offers Yurt to Yurt Skiing between the Tall Pines and Croft Yurts along the Boundary Waters longest tracked trail: the Banadad.

In the winter, we bring in your luggage and food containers. In the summer, you can drive to a parking area near the yurt if you drive a high clearance vehicle. We supply and bring in your water.You bring in your drinking water containers. Year around, we recommend a picnic cooler to hold your food and ice. Ice is available at a local grocery, a three mile drive.

Pets welcome at the Tall Pines Yurt for a nominal fee. All our accommodations, including the Tall Pines Yurt, are smoke free. Because the yurts are located deep in the woods you might be visited by mice. We keep traps in the yurts and we run the trap line often.
