“Wonderful little gem of a motel!”
Reviewed 4 August 2011

The Outpost Motel is a little strip motel right on Hwy 61 just 8 miles east of Grand Marais. We stayed there the first time on the recommendation of some friends of ours. We have been back at least a half dozen times since then. The units are extremely clean and the facility is very well cared for. They have 1 and 2 bedroom kitchenettes with living rooms as well as smaller single room units. All units have at least one picture window that looks out at beautiful Lake Superior. It is a very dog friendly facility and there are hiking trails nearby where you can walk your dogs to your heart's content. There is nothing fancy about the facility - no spa or pool. Just an extremely clean place that is well cared for and so convenient to so many beautiful areas with so much to do in beautiful northeastern Minnesota.
