This was our second stay at East Bay Suites. This time we got a deluxe business room instead of a suite. (On-line email special just at the end of the season.) It was the perfect size for our long weekend, and the small kitchenette offered everything, and more, than we needed. The bed was very comfortable, and everything was clean... More

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 .

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 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.
