This bed and breakfast is on Gunflint Trail north of Grand Marais. Nestled back on a dirt road off the Trail, it is the perfect place for a quiet getaway. The 4 rental rooms are on the 2nd floor with the common areas on the 1st. The 2 breakfasts we had there were delicious. The hosts were helpful in telling... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Pincushion B & B and loved it! The property is beautiful inside and out. Our room was a corner room, so we had great views and ventilation. It is quiet and peaceful up on the mountain, but still so close to town and other attractions. We loved that the hiking trails... More

The location of the B&B was awesome, but we are disappointed that we didn't have any time to use the trails that are literally right outside the doors. My husband and I stayed here during a weekend trip away and wished we had more time here. Our bedroom was simple but nice, as we didn't spend any time in it... More

This is my third time at the Pincushion Bed & Breakfast. A friend, her dog and I just came back from a nice short weekend trip and I am glad we made the effort to leave the Twin Cities despite the not so great early morning, sort of icy road conditions. It is always a treat to go Up North... More

This is a wonderful B&B. The hosts are extremely friendly and create a very welcoming and friendly environment. The rooms and common areas are very comfortable, just like home. The breakfasts are communal, multi-course, well-thought out and bountiful. The hosts are only too ready to supply you with great advice on however you wish to spend your time in the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our family ( two humans and two canines) were welcomed by our hosts and the owners were open, generous and patient. The b&b is beautiful and the owners gave us great advice for dog friendly skiing. They even upgraded our room for free so we'd have more room for the pooches. Their dog is sweet... More

My husband and I spent a weekend at the Pincushion B&B over Fisherman's Picnic weekend. What a glorious time we had. The food was phenomenal and our room was comfortable and it had a spectacular view. We went hiking on Pincushion Mt and enjoyed the wonderful scenery, quiet and solitude. Lynn and Ruby were gracious hosts and encouraged us to... More

We enjoyed our stay at Pincushion! The B & B is located outside of Grand Marais (no traffic noise) with immediate access to miles of wooded recreational trails. The bedrooms were clean, organized, and had private baths with showers. Breakfasts were wholesome and delicious. The B & B does have a friendly dog who will jump on you if you're... More

The Pincushion B&B was a wonderful place to stay for those that enjoy the outdoors and want to be a part of the beautiful Northwoods of Minnesota. My husband and I felt instantly welcomed by Lynn which was a great bonus on a relaxing weekend away from the cities. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful each morning! I would highly recommend...
