My husband and I recently stayed at the art house. The room was comfortable with a view of Lake Superior. The shower was also good with a rain shower head. The breakfasts were quite good and plentiful. We enjoyed using the deck that overlooked the lake too. The B&B is located in easy walking distance to the town and the... More

We stayed at Jay and Rose's B&B for a week while attending a class at the Folk School. Our room was very comfortable and had a view of Lake Superior. It was conveniently located, and we could walk most everywhere in Grand Marais. The breakfasts were tasty and plentiful. Jay was very helpful in helping us reconnect with some forgotten... More

Jay and Rose are very nice and accommodating. The room was clean and had a nice private bathroom attached ( no sharing!). The house is on a quiet street and is very near downtown Grand Marais. It was easy to bike or walk to places. We met wonderful guests and the breakfast was great and filling. We will definitely stay... More

We stayed at the Art House for a weekend to attend a class at North House Folk School. It's only a one-block + walk, so is the closest lodging to the school, and is a nice walk to downtown. Jay and Rose were great hosts, and Jay prepared a wonderful breakfast each day. The rooms are cozy but comfortable, and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights during a winter trip to the North Shore (to go dog sledding - check out Points Unknown!). We had a small but cozy room facing the water - I even got him to wake up in time for sunrise one morning! Jay serves breakfast from 7:30-9, both days we ate with... More

I stayed for 5 nights, while taking a course at the North House Folk School. Friendly proprietors, clean, comfortable, affordable, delicious breakfast. Jay served eggs each day, but never repeated a recipe....and not one single fried egg! Really great muffins and breads, baked fresh each morning. I think I must have had the best room, with the view of the... More

You can easily walk to the bay and great restaurants from the Art House, it is not luxurious in appearance but it is a luxury if you value peace, tranquility, friendliness and delightful meals. You can choose to read, play or enjoy company in the living room, deck with grill or backyard with fire pit. Rose and Jay make you... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Room was attractive and comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious and varied. Other guests were friendly and breakfast conversation was enjoyable. Rose and Jay are great hosts and very helpful. Location was excellent since we were teaching at North House Folk School.

It's like staying with dear friends. The common spaces are so inviting and comfortable. It is very quiet too. Fabulous food and fun conversation. Jay and Rose and Ennis are so talented and are such wonderful hosts.

This bed & breakfast is definitely a great option in the Grand Marais area. Many of the hotels are becoming overpriced, and this B & B has a great location, wonderful owners, and delicious breakfasts! The vegetable sausage frittata, served one morning, was tasty! Great if you are staying a couple days on the North Shore of Lake Superior!
