This was the 2nd time we stayed here and made reservations for next fall on the way out. I will get the one negative out of the way first. The electric fireplace?! What are they thinking? You turn it on and you hear a motor run and get none of the benefits of a real fire. But you can go to the lobby for a gas fireplace or the beach for a campfire. Now the rest is all good. Beautiful view, steps from the water, across the street from the "Worlds Best Donuts", walking distance to all the nice restaurants in town, lots of space in the 1 BR suite, fully equiped kitchen, washer and dryer in the room, friendly service, and best of all we can bring our dogs along. I disagree with a previous review about price, as we had the large 1 BR suite (not a standard room) for just over $200/night. Comparable to Bluefin Bay in Tofte, but with all the amenities of Grand Marais right out your door. They have free bikes to use, and will drive you to a trailhead, while you leave your car at the other end, so you can do a one way hike. It is a better location than the Best Western for walking around town. I couldn't ask for anything more for a North Shore getaway!
