Terry Backlund is a Grand Marais “local.” He knows just about everyone, which is very helpful when you are shopping for a home or vacation property. He’s easy to talk to and more importantly, will listen to what you have to say. When it comes to real estate he’ll give you the straight scoop.

Grand Marais is an attractive and vibrant place to raise a family or retire. It has all of the amenities you’d expect to find in a small town, and then some. For its small size, there is a surprisingly large selection of great restaurants to choose from. On the menu at many of them are locally netted, fresh Lake Superior fish. There are numerous clubs and social groups that cover an array of interests such as tennis, ATV, horseback riding and ski clubs, both downhill and cross country. Services and activities include the Cook County Hospital and Sawtooth Clinic, a county recycling center, a community swimming pool, tennis courts, golf course, skate park, and a curling rink to name just a few.

For a small town, Grand Marais places a premium on culture. The community’s Arrowhead Center for the Arts hosts performances ranging from locally produced plays to national recording artists. The renowned North House Folk School attracts students from across the country with its curriculum of folk arts and crafts and construction skills. Founded in 1947, the Grand Marais Art Colony is the oldest art colony in the state. The Johnson Heritage post has continuous showings of works by local and regional artists.
