“Very nice B&B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

We stayed on the 3rd floor suite, clean comfortable private and quiet.
Would stay there again if in Grand Marais.
Breakfast was delicious.
The lack of air conditioning was not a problem as the temp outside will drop at night.

We chose to stay in the Alaska room for our one night stay in Grand Marias. The room was very quiet, clean, and comfortable. We liked that the room inclued a small fridge. Max and Sherri are very nice hosts who made us feel welcome. It is also within in walking distance to restaurants. Note: There is no air conditioning if you're planning a stay when it is very hot outside or suffer from allergies and prefer to sleep in the air condition.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at MacArthur House over the 4th for 3 nights. Although it rained for most of 2 of the 3 days we couldn't have been happier with our accomadations. We stayed in the Harbour suite and would highly recommend it. Large room, very clean, nice two person jacuzzi that we used every day. Great view of the harbour and for us the fireworks on the 4th. Great, comfortable, soft sheets and towels. The location was only a very nice convenient walk from 'downtown'. It was our first time in Grand Marais and we really liked the town. Max and Sherri were very friendly, made great breakfasts and gave some great recommendatios for dinner. We could not have had a nicer stay than at MacArthur House.

Room Tip: We would definitely pick the Harbour suite.

We really enjoyed our stay last weekend at the MacArthur house. Max & Sheeri were delightful hosts and really made the planning easy for my us. We had a breathtaking view from our third floor room. Their recommendation for dinner was fantastic too. I look forward to visiting again!

My friend and I had decided to travel on a whim without much planning. I had seen this B&B on tripadvisor.com before leaving and jotted down their phone number. On the night we decided to land in Grand Marais we gave Max and Sherri a call. They accommodated our late arrival, made sure we ate dinner before everything had closed, and were very welcoming. The B&B is artistically and comfortably furnished. It was very clean, and I appreciated the organic soaps and handmade jewelry Sherri made. The food was fantastic, too! A great deal, and I would most definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: All of the rooms were wonderful! Ours was on the first floor - not noisy at all.

This was our fourth visit to MacArthur House. We were so excited that our family purchased us a two night stay! As always, the place was beautiful and our room was perfect. Max and Sherri are the best and we love how welcoming and considerate they are to our needs. Both of our breakfast were awesome! We can't wait to come back again and highly recommend this lovely bed and breakfast.

Had a chance to check out MacArthur House this past President's Day weekend and will definitely recommend it to all! The house is very neat, clean, spacious and quiet. The owners/hosts Max & Sherri could not have been more welcoming and kind. The best part was the delicious breakfasts that I enjoyed. It's a short walk (in any weather) to North House Folk School where I attended a class at the Fiber Retreat. Max & Sherri are active in Grand Marais and very helpful. The blueberry bread pudding we had for breakfast on Saturday was a genuine treat. Can't wait for next year...or maybe this summer?

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful, I would enjoy trying one of the rooms that face the lake next time.
