We had a one bedroom condo that had a balcony overlooking the lake. It is hard to beat the view! So nice. The room was great too. Very nice fireplace on the cold nights, fairly well equipped kitchen ( could have used another fry pan and baking dish, but not the end of the world) and plenty of space in... More

We stayed in room 307 - a 1 bedroom suite on the third floor with a fabulous view of Lake superior. The suite was much bigger than we expected and very comfortable for our family of 4. We had the kids in the bedroom and my husband and I slept on the sofa bed - a good quality sofa bed... More

Awesome stay with Amazing views right on Lake Superior. It was so nice to hike with our dog- nightly fires in the fireplace, and leave the windows open to listen to the waves crash. Great hiking- angry trout is a must, and good food at the gun flint tavern as well. Great place to stay in Grand Marais.

The suites have no floor covering apart from a faded,stained,frayed rug. The floor is scratched by the chairs which grate, and sound horrible, especially if you are on the ground floor . The windows are dirty. The bed had a wrecked and torn mattress cover that was not replaced even tho we told them about it on day one of... More

I'm so sorry to hear you had a "ghastly" experience! You mentioned a few items that we are in the process of completing. Several units have ordered new rugs, felt padding is being added to furniture, and we're working on a solution for guest who do not wish to wake with the sunrise. The torn mattress pad has also been... More

I just got back from a great 4 day stay at the East Bay Suites in Grand Marais. I visit the North Shore once or twice a year, but usually stay in the Lutsen area. Staying here instead was a great decision. We had a two bedroom suite on the 3rd floor with fantastic views of Superior from the main... More

This has got to be the best place to stay in Grand Marais. From the moment we checked-in and met Art (who makes this place double-awesome), we knew this spot was going to be great. We had a 2nd Floor 1-bedroom suite overlooking Lake Superior. The room was outstanding and the scenery could not have been any better. We opened... More

While we like being a small walk away from unique shops and restaurants, we love the breathtaking views and relaxing sounds of the lake we offer right from your suite. We're thrilled that you love it as much as we do! We have a room waiting when you're ready to come back. More

We stayed two nights in a first floor 2-bedroom suite, complete with direct access to the beach, a fireplace, kitchenette, living room and 2 full bathrooms. The hotel's units are investor-owned and are available for rent when the owners are not on the premises. The registration area is small, the staff friendly. The lobby is a large room that functions... More

I recently stayed at East Bay for a ladies weekend in Grand Marais. We found the suite to be a wonderful lakeside stay. It was beautiful to hear the lake all night and wake up to the beautiful sunrises. The little amenities like the popcorn and movies make it a perfect for filling in the time between hikes & restaurants... More
