Real Estate in Grand Marais, Minnesota and Lake Superior North Shore Properties

grand marais mn map Welcome to Backlund Realty
Backlund Realty is located in Grand Marais, Minnesota, a picturesque harbor village on Lake Superior's North Shore. The surrounding area is comprised primarily of national and state forests dotted with hundreds of crystal clear lakes. The Superior Hiking Trail crosses the ridge just outside of town and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is only minutes away. Also nearby are state parks, the Lutsen Mountains ski area, miles of cross-country ski trails, snowmobile trails, and hunting and fishing areas.

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.
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. grand marais
You can walk just about anywhere and it won't be long before everyone at the coffee shop knows your name.
