We had a wonderful stay. Max and Sherri are very hospitable. The rooms are beautiful and inviting. The breakfast was awesome. Looking forward to our next stay. We went with 2 other couples and enjoyed socializing in the common area.

The Mac Arthur House B&B was fabulous! The room was spacious and airy with a stunning view of Lake Superior. Max and Sherri are wonderful hosts and the breakfasts were sumptuous. I'll go back!eswdewsdsddsdsaew

This is a very nice B&B and a true value. The owners are very nice and personable. The breakfasts were delicious, including fresh fruit from their garden. We spent two nights there and enjoyed every moment that we were in the B&B, including the main rooms on first floor and our bedroom.

We had stayed at the Bed and Breakfast. Room was beautiful and comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful. Everything was more than expected. Only problem was having to park on the street. Otherwise, everything was great.

Gorgeous, spacious room with a stunning view of the harbor. Private bathroom, with additional whirlpool tub in master suite. Mmmmmm, good banana bread! Very pleasant chatting with Max and Sherri. This was a business trip, and when we finally retire to our room to be "off the clock," we like it private and quiet. We got both.

We made a reservation 2 months in advance, but did not know they accidently wrote down the wrong credit card and phone numbers (off one digit). Since the credit card failed and phone number not work, they gave our reservation to someone else. No attempt to look us up on the internet (have a very unique name). We showed up... More

We checked into Cedar cabin at the MacArthur House B&B late in the evening. James showed us to the cabin, gave us the keys, and said call if we needed anything. We didn't. The beds were comfy and warm. Because it is a log cabin with partitions between the two bedrooms you can hear what is going on with your... More

The MacArthur house provides clean spaces and friendly service. It is a change from many of the more "ornate" B&Bs out there, but it is comfortable. The rooms seem a bit sterile in the decor, but most importantly they are clean with private bathrooms. I didn't really check out other accommodations in the area, but the price here seemed reasonable.... More

We spent 3 wonderful nights and had a fabulous time. Our hosts were so pleasant that it really made us feel that we were at home. The food was beautifully prepared and was delicious. Our room was just ideal--could not have been better !!. The North Shore and Grand Marais are beautiful parts of this country and MacArthur House make... More

We checked in to the MacArthur House on an unseasonably warm day in Grand Marais. We were escorted to our third floor suite. My husband politely asked if there was air conditioning. The reply was - No, perhaps you want to stay at the Best Western, we want you to be happy. We were shocked an inn keeper would provide... More

This review made me feel terrible because of my communication with our guest. I was surprised when I read this review. I normally do not write back. But, this time I feel the need to explain my side of the conversation. The guests did check in on an unusually hot day. When we got to the third floor suite the... More
