If you are looking to escape from it all in a remote wilderness setting, but don't want to sacrifice modern amenities, look no further than Baldy's Nest.

Baldy's Nest features 3-bedrooms and 2-bathrooms on a single easy-access level. The master bedroom has an attached bathroom and a spacious deck spans the entire length of the living room. While not directly on a lake, Baldy's Nest provides sweeping 180-degree views of Gunflint Lake, which acts as a border between the United States and Canada. There is a public access point less than a mile away so you can bring your canoe, kayak, or motorboat and enjoy a day on Gunflint Lake or many of the other nearby lakes. At the end of the day, you can come home to Baldy's Nest and relax in the spacious open living area or rest your head in one of the comfortable bedrooms.
Passing through the town of Grand Marais, MN you will find the entrance to the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway marked by a statue of a voyageur and his canoe and a black bear.

These can include deer, bear, fox, wolf, and even moose! In the springtime, many Gunflint Trail visitors have reported seeing mother moose with their calves, a sight that is becoming more rare all over the world. Once at Baldy's Nest you are in your own most peaceful spot on earth, with plenty of wilderness activities to keep you busy during your stay. Enjoy hiking, canoeing, and exploring this beautiful area. Take a day trip into the BWCA or hop over to the Gunflint Lodge for a bite to eat. Head down the trail into the quiet, peaceful town of Grand Marais for a day of shopping and dining at the many restaurants that make this quaint town so unique.
Whether you are coming for an adventure or coming to relax and escape from it all, Baldy's Nest is here to be your Gunflint Trail home away from home.
Gunflint Lake Note: Since Gunflint Lake is located on the US/Canada border, and there is no customs station, you will need to obtain a Remote Area Border Crossing Permit (RABC or CANN Pass) to cross the border for any recreational purpose, including fishing. You can apply online at http://www.ontario.ca/page/fishing-licence-non-residents-canada. It takes 4-6 weeks to receive, so plan ahead! You will also need to have your passport with you while in Canadian waters.

The location of Baldy's Nest is breathtaking, and the interior fantastic. This rental really felt like a home away from home. Clean, modern yet classic log structure. The kitchen was a dream to work in. The beds wonderfully comfortable. Everything you need for a relaxing get away. We loved it.
