We stayed at the MacArthur House for three nights and had a wonderful time - it is a beautiful house, and our room was very clean and comfortable. Sherri and Max are great hosts - they really make you feel comfortable and at home. The location is fantastic - only 2 blocks from the lake and many nice restaurants. We... More

Clean room, private bath, delicious breakfast & delightful hosts.....what more could you ask for? Max and Sherri make you feel right at home in their home while visiting Grand Marais. We hiked & shopped and saw the beautiful sights all day and rested comfortably in the birch room of MacArthur House. Highly recommend!

My wife and myself stayed here over the holiday weekend, and it was an absolute joy! The proprietors are wonderful, charming, knowledgeable, and fun people; the view from the spacious deck is amazing, and the breakfasts were phenomenal! Mac Arthur House is a very attractive, modern, and spacious B&B. The dining area overlooks the deck; the rooms are very large... More

My husband I came to Grand Marais for a long weekend. Being a holiday weekend, many places were booked or at the higher rates of the season. We were pleased with the value of of the Sugar Maple Cabin. There was limited kitchen facilities but we were happy to have a fridge for beverages and leftovers. Nothing fancy but certainly... More

We stayed in the Superior Room which is approximately 650 square feet. The whirlpool tub for two felt great after a long day of hiking and exploring the area. Since we were traveling for nearly 3 weeks, the suite had a homelike, spacious and comfortable feel. Max and Sherri made an excellent effort to attend to our veggie and gluten-free... More

We stayed in the La Berta suite for a night in May and it was amazing. It was spacious with two bedrooms and had an airy and open design. It was clean and had everything we needed. The owners were so wonderful, even mailing me a pair of shoes I left there. Breakfast was also great. The location was ideal... More

My wife and I had occasion to visit Grand Marais this past weekend and opted to stay at the MacArthur House B&B. The B&B is a short distance from the downtown area, providing easy access to all attractions and restaurants. We stayed in the Superior Room, which featured a very comfortable king sized bed, cathedral ceiling, and spacious accomodations. Our... More

We stayed at the MacArthur House B & B last Saturday night. It was a great location, just a few minutes walk to the restaurants downtown. We stayed in the North Shore room, the smallest of their rooms. It was quite an adequate size, with a small fridge, and a good sized closet. There is a small shower but no... More

I had stayed here under previous owners and a different name and loved it. The newest owners updated the motel room I stayed in and it was fantastic. Tile floor and bathrooms have been updated. Prices for the motel room only increased about $20 with new owners and updates. Location is up the street from the main street in and... More
