When we visit Grand Marais, we always visit the Drury Lane Bookstore. A locally owned store, it offers something for all readers, including children. Have questions, they always are helpful. It's warm, cozy and inviting. There's something for everybody!

This is a really cute bookstore right on the lake. The people are helpful and they have a good selection of material. If you're looking for that perfect book to read by the lake, this is the stop.
