My wife and myself stayed here over the holiday weekend, and it was an absolute joy! The proprietors are wonderful, charming, knowledgeable, and fun people; the view from the spacious deck is amazing, and the breakfasts were phenomenal! Mac Arthur House is a very attractive, modern, and spacious B&B. The dining area overlooks the deck; the rooms are very large...

My husband I came to Grand Marais for a long weekend. Being a holiday weekend, many places were booked or at the higher rates of the season. We were pleased with the value of of the Sugar Maple Cabin. There was limited kitchen facilities but we were happy to have a fridge for beverages and leftovers. Nothing fancy but certainly...

We stayed in the Superior Room which is approximately 650 square feet. The whirlpool tub for two felt great after a long day of hiking and exploring the area. Since we were traveling for nearly 3 weeks, the suite had a homelike, spacious and comfortable feel. Max and Sherri made an excellent effort to attend to our veggie and gluten-free...

We stayed in the La Berta suite for a night in May and it was amazing. It was spacious with two bedrooms and had an airy and open design. It was clean and had everything we needed. The owners were so wonderful, even mailing me a pair of shoes I left there. Breakfast was also great. The location was ideal...

My wife and I had occasion to visit Grand Marais this past weekend and opted to stay at the MacArthur House B&B. The B&B is a short distance from the downtown area, providing easy access to all attractions and restaurants. We stayed in the Superior Room, which featured a very comfortable king sized bed, cathedral ceiling, and spacious accomodations. Our...

We stayed at the MacArthur House B & B last Saturday night. It was a great location, just a few minutes walk to the restaurants downtown. We stayed in the North Shore room, the smallest of their rooms. It was quite an adequate size, with a small fridge, and a good sized closet. There is a small shower but no...

I had stayed here under previous owners and a different name and loved it. The newest owners updated the motel room I stayed in and it was fantastic. Tile floor and bathrooms have been updated. Prices for the motel room only increased about $20 with new owners and updates. Location is up the street from the main street in and...

We went to Grand Marais to celebrate a special birthday of my wife's. We love the north shore and Grand Marais is situated on the shores of Lake Superior, a charming village with artist's shops, good restaurants and friendly people. It is a scant half hour from a number of State hiking trails. Our stay with Max and Sherri was...

My husband and I spent 3 nights at MacArthur House for our Anniversary in mid-October. We stayed in the Superior Room. We had a very pleasant stay. The owners are very nice & personable. The breakfasts were well prepared and filling. We are frequent B&B guests and compared to other B&B's we've stayed in, this one is average. Very pleasant,...

We stayed a night in the Mt Ash cabin. It's a cozy little place but has enough space. The owners had put together a binder of restaurants & rated them which was nice to use when looking for a place to eat. The check in & out process was very easy. We would stay again.
