We stayed in the Pine cabin with our one year old son, and it was just what we were looking for: clean, comfortable, two bedrooms, and full kitchen capabilities only a few blocks from the shops and restaurants in Grand Marais. Our son crawled around every inch of that cabin and was no dirtier than when we brought him (a... More

My wife and I were passing through on our way to Canada. This was also our first bed and breakfast experience. This place was amazing, fealty like a homey hotel. I highly recommend staying here. Max and Sherry were great hosts. We plan to go stay there again, next time for longer!

We have been going to MacArthur House Cabins since August 2012. We always take our grandchildren with and we rent a cabin for a week. We are walking distance from everywhere in town that we want to go. The hospitality of the people here is that they go all out to make sure that our stay is the best that... More

My husband and I traveled from Naperville, IL and stayed with Max and Sherri for 2 nights while visiting Grand Marais,MN. The Bed and breakfast was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was shared with other guests around a large table and both mornings it was wonderful! Sheri and Max were delightful!

We just returned from 4 wonderful nights at MacArthur House B&B and couldn't be happier with our experience. Max and Sherri made us feel comfortable and welcome, offered great recommendations yet were so respectful of our time and space. Our room exceeded our expectations. It was spacious, spotless, bright with so many windows and had wonderful views. We appreciated the... More

Recently, I took a three day class at the North House Folk School. We chose this B and B, because of the reasonable price for a B and B and its proximity to NHFS. ( I was two blocks up the hill from the school). This B and B was just blocks from most places one would need to go... More

It is with sadness that I write this review. I am a lifelong visitor to Grand Marais. My family has had roots here for more than 125 years. My husband and I stayed here in their cabins twice, once in 2014 and then in 2015. The cabin we rented was old but clean. However, in 2015, the stove had been... More

We decided to write a response because our guests and future guests need to know the other side of the story. First of all we love kids. We have 5 of our own. And 3 grandchildren. Children are always welcome at MacArthur House Cabins. Most of our cabins rented throughout the summer have children. Your group is the only one... More

We have traveled extensively throughout Europe and the US and the MacArthur House B&B is one of the best B&Bs that we have ever stayed in. Max and Sherri were outstanding hosts and the breakfasts were simply top shelf. They have a great location and is just a short walk to the downtown area of Grand Marais.

We stayed at the MacArthur House overnight while hiking a tour North Shore waterfalls. Max and Sherri were accommodating, welcoming, and helpful. Our room was just what we needed, with a beautiful view of Lake Superior. We were the youngest people there by quite a bit, and the other guests were wonderful resources as we planned the rest of our... More

Sherri and Max are great hosts - knowledgeable about the area and very helpful. As I mentioned in the title, the suite we had was very well decorated, with great views of Lake Superior just 3 blocks away down the hill. The breakfasts were always delicious with typically a fritata or other egg-based main and fresh fruit. Muffins or coffee... More
