Welcome to Gem House on Lake Superior.
Gem House is the culmination of a life-long dream: To create an exceptionally inviting retreat and adventure base on the shores of mighty Lake Superior. Located a minute’s walk from the historic Naniboujou Lodge, and a 15-minute drive north of Grand Marais, the Gem House is a unique destination for rest and a true North Shore experience.
Gem House’s wide, sandy beach is a rare find on Superior, perfect for gemstone hunting, beach walks, evening fires, and fishing next to the Brule River. Be sure to stop in at the Naniboujou Lodge and enjoy a meal in what is arguably the most unique dining room in all of Minnesota. When you need a forest fix, explore the sprawling Judge C.R. Magney State Park just on the other side of Hwy 61. Bring your boots and make the challenging hike from Gem House up to the mysterious Devil’s Kettle Falls. We are also very near the Superior Hiking Trail featuring endless areas for exploration. And, of course, you’ll want to visit Grand Marais and Grand Portage while you’re here.
