We stayed in the Robin's Nest fro two nights in mid-June. Great accommodations and it was perfect for two people. Through the window you can catch a glimpse of the harbour. The unit was clean and had everything we needed for a great stay in Grand Marais. Located only a short walk from the town provided a great starting point... More

On a quick trip to Grand Marais we stayed at this absolutely darling property. It was difficult to find any properties with availability and at an affordable price. We were so happily surprised upon arrival. We met the owner on arrival and she told us to go on in as the room, the Loon Nest, was open and ready. The... More

With the people who run it lost none at all. Yet we really liked it. Price was great we would stay... More

We are sorry we were not able to interact you with as much. We recently bought this in January and have found it difficult at times to balance and juggle it all. We are learning and hope to do better the next time you visit. Thank you so much for your review! More

This motel is two blocks from restaurants and the walk along Lake Superior. It is tucked into a quiet neighborhood. The main business area is in walking distance. Overall, the Feather Nest Inn is a good value.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Feathernest Inn. The price was very reasonable and the amenities in the room were really helpful to us as we cooked all our meals during our stay. We have stayed at the inn (formerly the Gunflint Motel) multiple times now and really enjoyed getting to know the new owners. Thanks for the enjoyable... More

I have stayed at this place several times before while attending classes at the North House Folk School nearby, a 2-block walk down the street. It has recently changed management, but the simple, homey style has remained. The young couple that now owns it were welcoming and helpful but gave us plenty of privacy. The facility is set in a...

Perfect option for a family weekend up North. Close to Lake Superior, restaurants, and shops. Cabin feel to the room, kitchen area, and personalized feel (lavender satchels on pillows, art supply basket for kids, Thank You note our last day...). Ran by a sweet family. Would definitely return!

This motel has always worked out very well for our family. The one and only problem we have ever had was snowmobile's parking in our space. So if you stay in the winter just remind the office not to let anyone park in front of your room.

If taking classes at folk school, or need to walk to any activities this place is perfect. And the rooms are well kept. Nicest part is that it is quiet. No traffic noise from hwy 61. And the kitchenettes are well equipped. Also safe for kids, as the streets by their location are very quiet. Our grandkids, can walk to... More

Same rooms, great prices, friendly owners. Nothing fancy, but everything works, everything is well maintained, everything is clean and the full kitchen helps keep costs down by preparing some meals in the rooms.
