We had a delightful 3 night stay at The Mangy Moose . Everything was as advertised and as other reviewers had mentioned. Great location to be central to shops and dining. Very clean, quiet and comfortable room. Wonderfully friendly, attentive and accommodating proprietors, Billy and Danielle. We were looking for a clean, quiet, reasonably priced place to use as our home base for day trips. The Mangy Moose was a perfect fit for us!

We loved staying at the Mangy Moose. Billy and Danielle were excellent hosts and the property was very comfortable, clean, and had lots of additional touches that made our long weekend there a joy. Centrally located in walking distance to everything in town, we will absolutely stay here again. I only wish it were also open in the winter so we could stay here when we come up for winter fun!

We stayed for two nights in The Lake Trout, a very well laid out two-room unit. The first thing we noticed was that the place was immaculate, not a missed dust ball or dirt trail anywhere. The sitting area was very comfortable for two and the bedroom is well laid out and has adequate plug-ins for phones, etc. Everything was obviously recently updated and the use of natural woods throughout the unit gave it it very nice north woods ambiance. It is an easy walk to the main downtown area, even for an old ambler like me. In addition to the room being great, we had such a pleasant time because our hosts were so friendly and accommodating. They had the fire going in the common area and stopped by to make sure everything was to our liking. Besides that, they really know the surrounding area and were super helpful in pointing out activities. I cannot recommend this little jewel enough and wouldn't consider another place to stay when we go back next year.

The Mangy Moose was the perfect place for us to land along the north shore! Grand Marais was conveniently located, with multiple choices of beautiful hiking trails and good restaurants and breweries close at hand. Our room was very nice, clean, and recently remodeled. Bill and Danielle went out of their way to make all of their guests feel welcome, from offering local favorites advice, to making fireside chats with other guests in the evenings a fun option. Thanks for a memorable vacation!

We have stayed in many different motels in the Grand Marais area over the years. This was our first time at The Moose and it will not be the last. The room was very clean, quiet, comfortable, with actual Lake Superior views! Easy walking to just about any where you might want to go in Grand Marais. The best part - Bill and Danielle, the owners, two terrific people who will do just about anything to see that your stay is the best (including keeping my husband supplied with his coffee fixes!). You guys are the best!

Clean, comfortable rooms. Convenient location. Hosts were very helpful in finding good spots to eat giving directions to local sites, and providing any extras that were needed. Some restaurants were closed certain days and the hosts knew all the particulars. Highly recommended place to stay.

Log cabin feel. Luxe beds and bedding. New, clean and complete. Fridge, micro, blow dryer and ice machine. Fire pit right outside your door. Lovely touch. Everything is within walking distance if you choose. Shops were wonderful, right near waters edge. Highly recommend this destination.

The owners, Bill and Danielle, are fabulous. We have stayed at the Mangy Moose many times in the past 25 years - but the changes these two have made are outstanding. The room was updated - bed was super comfortable and the customer service was above and beyond. The location is good - made it walkable around Grand Marais. I would give this more than 5 stars if I could.

My husband and I stayed here for our first trip to Grand Marais, and we would definitely stay again! The location is super convenient, and the room was extremely clean and so cute! I also really appreciated the personalized local recommendation book from the owners, and they were sweet enough to check on us and make sure everything was to our satisfaction. I would definitely recommend staying at the Mangy Moose!

Came up here for 2 nights 3 days with a long time friend who was visiting from Florida. It was my first time at Mangy Moose, but not the North Shore. Had a lovely time.! From even before check in, Bill and Danielle were super accommodating and made it so easy. Room was super clean and one of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept on! A nightly fire was made and got to talk with another guest over the fire. Danielle helped in an instant when my cheap wine opener didn’t work. So appreciated! We got recommendations for the day and will for sure be back! Thanks Bill and Danielle!
