Do not overlook this little gem! My boyfriend and I stayed here for our anniversary trip and I couldn't have been more pleased. The owners, Dave and Don were sweet as pie and could not have been more helpful or accommodating. The room was quaint and clean and so quiet. We have stayed in Grand Marais many times but this was our first time at the Moose. I will definitely be back!

The room was small, but very clean, comfortable, and had a pleasant warm decor. Comfortable bed. Convenient location and only a block off the lake. Perfect for a stay where you don't plan to spend much time in your room.

This is a cozy and clean place in the Northwoods décor...It has all the amenities needed and is walking distance to many of the highlights of Grand Marais. Check-in was smooth and questions answered with knowledge and help. I would definitely stay here again and the only reasons not five star is when I turned lights off...dogs behind started barking...not for long but certainly is a drawback when trying to sleep and also no bathtub...not a biggie either...no breakfast but the price is right on when lacking one...so all things considered...A good place for the dollar value in this touristy area with great management...

Room Tip: Walking distance to many of the sites.

Our recent stay at the Mangy Moose could not have been better. The owner was so nice and extremely helpful. The room was very clean and not only had the basics, but extras. The refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker was especially nice. There were plenty of towels and even a blow dryer in the bathroom. We slept with the windows open and the noise was minimal. The price couldn't be beat. I would highly recommend staying at the Mangy Moose!!!

We have stayed with our dog at the Mangy Moose twice. Both times we found it to be very nice and certainly accommodating to us and our dog. We will no doubt be staying there again.

Grand Marais is a very fun place to visit. Great hiking and wonderful Minnesota state parks nearby.

We go up every year and will continue to do so.

If a comfortable night's rest amid pleasant surroundings is your goal, you can't miss by staying at the Mangy Moose. It's convenient location permits walking to several restaurants, interesting sights and the harbor area itself. This property has been updated in recent years, but it is maintained so well and cleaned so thoroughly you feel like the room is brand new. The room (#8) we used for two days was modest in size, but had everything we needed. The plumbing worked, the TV was a nice flat screen model and the internet functioned well. It exceeded our expectations and when we get back to Grand Marais we will check here first.

We had to cancel our trip, but by the wat they handled our request, there is no question we will stay there when we can get away. Very accommodating people and treated us as though we were family. Has to be a great place to stay!
