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

We went to Grand Marais to celebrate a special birthday of my wife's. We love the north shore and Grand Marais is situated on the shores of Lake Superior, a charming village with artist's shops, good restaurants and friendly people. It is a scant half hour from a number of State hiking trails. Our stay with Max and Sherri was... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights at MacArthur House for our Anniversary in mid-October. We stayed in the Superior Room. We had a very pleasant stay. The owners are very nice & personable. The breakfasts were well prepared and filling. We are frequent B&B guests and compared to other B&B's we've stayed in, this one is average. Very pleasant,... More

We stayed a night in the Mt Ash cabin. It's a cozy little place but has enough space. The owners had put together a binder of restaurants & rated them which was nice to use when looking for a place to eat. The check in & out process was very easy. We would stay again.

This was our first trip to Grand Marais, and staying at MacArthur House made it even more memorable. Max and Sherrie were very nice and welcoming, and the breakfasts were delicious. We stayed in the Harbor Suite, and we loved the room (especially the Jacuzzi tub). The location was perfect as the walk into town was short. We highly recommend... More

Bed and Breakfast The beds were hard as rocks. The breakfast was wonderful. The whole place was somewhat sterile, clean, but without charm. Breakfast is served to every guest at the same time at a big table, which for me was nice, because I like meeting people, but if you choose to be a loner, beware.

I really love the town of Grand Marais, and was thrilled to find this place to stay. I loved the walk into town, it is just a few blocks. But by being in a residential neighborhood we could sleep with the windows open, and still have a peaceful and quiet nights sleep. We stayed in The Superior Room - second... More

Met expectations, would recommend, would stay again. Stayed for one night before taking boat to Isle Royale; our old favorite, the Wedgewood Motel, has closed for good. Sigh. But, life goes on, and we were happy to find the Sugar Maple unit at the MacArthur B&B. Location: in a residential neighborhood, within (reasonable) walking distance of the happenin' parts of...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights as we celebrated our anniversary at the end of May. We did a lot of research on line and through Trip Advisor and, as a result, booked the Harbor Suite in advance. It is a spacious room with a sitting room that has a kitchenette table and small fridge. The description... More

After traveling the "circle route" and dealing with fog and rain, it was refreshing to come to Grand Maria's. We decided to stay and happened upon the MacArthur house. What a delight. The rooms are spacious and equipped with all we needed. The hosts, Max and Sherry are a delight, and the food was scrumptious. Couldn't have been happier.
