I am a semi-local as I work for one of the lodges on the trail. I come into town to get away on my days off and love bed and breakfasts. MacArthur house doesn't disappoint. Stayed in the Alaska room and loved it. Wonderful breakfast with the other people staying and lively conversation. I am coming back again next weekend... More

We decided to stay here after reading good reviews and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed the first night but didn't have a reservation for more than one night. Luckily, the owner overheard of our dilemma and made some room rearrangements which allowed us to stay in the same room for another night. Enjoyed the breakfast (gluten free accommodated) and...

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
