Just checked out of The Loon! It's more like a house in there than a room honestly. Really clean place. Enjoyed our stay. Will be coming back! Owners are very friendly and accommodating. Location is very convenient to all of Grand Marais' attractions. ~Lats and Cees

We did not stay there. We cancelled our reservation TWO AND ONE HALF DAYS in advance due to inclement weather (this is a motorcycle touring trip) and asked to simply move our reservation to 3 days later. Heather advised us they have a SEVEN DAY cancellation policy and refused to move to a different day. We currently have a dispute... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you feel this way about our business. We are a small family owned and operated business much like the majority of motel and lodging businesses here in Grand Marais. In no way is our policy inflexible as we do everything we can to find someone to fill the dates that are... More

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

We stayed in the owl room , it had a separate bedroom with a full bed I. The living room, kitchen. It was a nice place to stay close to everything and the price was great. Not much interaction. 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.
