Right on the shoreline of Lake Superior in downtown Grand Marais. Cute condo with bedroom, full kitchen, living room, fireplace, jacuzzi tub and patio looking right at Superior. Pet friendly and we were on the bottom level so could walk right out our patio doors with the dog. Very friendly staff who gave wonderful recommendations for area spots. Also recommended... More

We loved the attention to detail this place offers. Organic coffee, Aveda products, great selection of books, S'mores and a bonfire if you want, even a Yoga mat in the closet. It was really nice to have pots and pans and everything else we needed to prepare meals. The bed was super comfortable, the view of Lake Superior was incredible,... More

On two separate occasions, the suite we rented had a non-functioning fireplace. There is a sign clearly posted in the room stating that the fireplace is to be used for supplementing the in-floor heat (which can be slow). We notified the front desk on both visits and were provided with a space heater. After our last visit (broken fireplace #2),... More

We appreciate that you’ve taken the time to contact management and to share your experience on TripAdvisor. We’re sorry we were unable to accommodate your request for a different room as it was Spring Break and we were full. As our General Manager explained, the fireplaces’ main function is for ambiance (as they give off little to no heat). We... More

East Bay Suites is conveniently located in downtown Grand Marais on the lake shore and within easy walking distance of restaurants, galleries, and Artist’s Point. Our reception was friendly and efficient. The establishment is pet-friendly (dirty paw cloths by the doors). Our reservation (a one-bedroom suite) was clean and very comfortable. All suites have a view of Lake Superior. Their... More

Our 2nd visit to East Bay Suites, we enjoy this little wonderful town. All though the weather was chilly it was still perfect. Full kitchen and a gorgeous view to Lake Superior. Waking to the crashing waves totally rocks, great way to start any day !

East Bay Suites was clean and very comfortable. Customer service was also very good. It was close to the ski resort and we did not have to drive very far. Restaurants were also in close proximity. We enjoyed our stay here.

This was our first visit to East Bay Suites- although we often come up from Duluth to camp around the area in Grand Marais. We traveled up here for a one-night getaway and wished we had more time. The hotel was quiet and the staff was very polite. The hotel room was amazing- a fireplace, large, comfortable bed, a closet... More

I really enjoyed this hotel. My partner and I travelled to Grand Marais for a one night getaway. The hotel was very cozy and welcoming. The room with the fireplace was really relaxing and put us at peace. The hotel has thought of all of the little details, from DVD and Video games to borrow, chessboards, and real candles and...

This was our second visit to what is becoming our favorite getaway location. My wife and I came up with friends for our first emptynester Christmas. We had a one bedroom suite (condo) that faced Lake Superior 20 feet from our door. The rooms are very nicely furnished, with furnishings clean and in very good condition. Winter is the gem... More
