My sister and I had a great stay over Fisherman's Picnic. Lovely home and terrific breakfasts. Clean and comfortable stay; an easy walk downtown. Perfect place to relax. Max and Sherri are lovely hosts! Don't pass up a stay at MacArthur B&B!

McArthur House is a wonderful B& B. The rooms are light, airy and roomy. The gardens are gorgeous and the hosts are wonderful people. They can help you out with whatever you need. The food was fresh, homemade and delicious. Could not have asked for 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!

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
