We have stayed at East Bay Suites before and enjoyed our stay, so booked there again for this visit. We had a three bedroom condo and a one bedroom condo. The condos were clean and comfortable, with a fully stocked kitchen, including cleaning supplies and a washer and dryer. We had a corner view of the lake and Artist's Point... More

Four friends and our elderly moms went for a weekend getaway to lovely grand marais and stayed here. It was perfect for us: right on the lake, within walking distance of everything, lovely large rooms with kitchenettes and comfy beds, beautiful common room with huge fireplace and games for all. Can't say enough good things...but you do pay a price... More

Love the place, great rooms, modern and clean. Staff is very nice with a location as good as it gets in Grand Marais. All the previous positive reviews are spot on, great place to stay. It's not the cheapest place to stay but it's worth every penny. It is really nice having the kitchen even though we didn't use it... More

EBS is the perfect place to stay in Grand Marais. Right on the water, quiet, clean, beautiful and well-cared for rooms, and great staff. Love the S'mores buckets and the amenities in the room!

stayed 2 nights. had to move rooms, but trip was short notice, so no biggie. First was 2 bedroom suite on north/east end, and faced lakeside. Not too great - too hot from morning sun, and too noisy. 2nd night was on south/west end - fantastic room. If you go, ask to be there!

East View Suites offers an incredible "my home on the lake" experience. Stayed in a two bedroom/two bath with full kitchen, dining table for four and comfortable living room that offers a lakeside view and is close enough to hear the waves of Lake Superior.

There is nothing better, or more peaceful, than the sound of waves crashing against the shore; it’s even better when you get to wake up and fall asleep to that beautiful sound. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, and are glad that you’ll be back for some more Rest and Relaxation. See you next... More

Highly recommend this place! We were there for a week with family - had several rooms all together. Right on the beach so we could enjoy the sunrise and then bonfires at night.

Beautiful location, right on Lake Superior with a nice flat beach. Rooms were very nice and very clean. There are two fire pits so you have to get there early if you want a spot. The resort is pet friendly which was a draw back for us because we were woken up by barking dogs each day. Despite the dogs... More
