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

Do not...I repeat...do not stay here if you have children!!! They are not kid friendly! The cabins are clean and cared for, although the beds are hard as rock. It is within walking distance to town and the property has been remodeled. But, I have never in all of our extensive family travels stayed in a more unfriendly place towards... More

We had a long discussion with our caretakers concerning your family's stay. There were a number of complaints and phone calls from the other guests staying at the same time.Complaints that the kids where running,... More

Our favorite place to get away is the northshore of Lake Superior. We have visited Grand Marais many times but never stayed overnight. This time we decided to stay and we chose MacArthur House Bed and Breakfast. It was outstanding. Great location. Nice rooms with many choices for size and amenities. Owners are very personable. Highly recommend a visit!

"Like Home", beautiful B&B. We have been staying at MacArthur House for many years and continue to return. Max and Sheri are like family and the breakfasts are delicious. We stayed in the Birch Room on the first floor, the room was bright, sunny and always extremely clean. Best place to stay when you visit Grand Marais. A short walk... More

To begin, we cannot rave enough about this place along with Max and Sherri's hospitality. First time in a bed and breakfast, we stayed in the Harbor suite for our honeymoon. We had no idea what to expect, and we were absolutely amazed by our experience. Fantastic complimentary breakfast prepared by Max and Sherri was enjoyed around the dining room... More

We recently stayed at the Macarthur House Bed and Breakfast in scenic Grand Marais, Minn. We opted to stay in one of the cabins on the property. The cabin was classic Northwoods, including a wood burning fireplace and knotty pine paneling. The cabin featured one bedroom with two twin beds and another bedroom with a full size bed. The front...

Beautiful home, light and airy, spacious room, views of lake, convenient walk to town and restaurants, friendly hosts, and delicious breakfasts! We'll definitely be back the next time we decide to hit the Superior hiking Trail.

This was our first experience staying in a bed & breakfast and it was excellent!! Our room was large, very clean and comfortable. Max and Sherrie were very cordial and friendly hosts. The breakfasts were great. Just a short walk to several restaurants and shops. Great place to relax and enjoy the North woods and Lake Superior.
