MacArthur House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 9 Grand Marais B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 May 2013

My husband spent Memorial Day week-end in Grand Marais and were fortunate enough to stay at the MarArthur House B&B. What a gem! We stayed in the Birch room on the firsr floor and couldn't have asked for better accommodations or nicer hosts; Max and Sherry do their best to make guests feel welcome. Our room was clean and bright with windows on 3 sides. The breakfast each morning was delicious and very filling. Breakfasts included vegetable frittata, French toast bake, and a fruit strata served with fresh fruit each morning. The coffee was amazing, and they brewed it as fast as I could drink it. On our way out, Sherry invited us to tour the entire house; my husband and I can hardly wait to return to experience the charm of another room. This was our first time staying in a B&B, and we are sold! Thank you, Max and Sherry for a wonderful week-end!

This B&B is a new building designed from the ground up to be a B&B. (As opposed to a home converted to that use.) The building is brand new. The rooms are large and immaculately maintained. Some have lake views. The breakfast is expertly prepared and sticks with you. The couple who run it are there because they wanted to be there rather than the working world that they had been in. They clearly work hard to make it a wonderful experience. It's within walking distance of the harbor and such attractions as the "North House Folk School."

Room Tip: As for "lake side" if you want the lake view.

We have stayed here several times and have enjoyed every stay. The house is large and welcoming and the rooms very nicely appointed. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are very good and the dining area is spacious and very bright. Max and Sherri are great hosts and the location is excellent for exploring Grand Marais and the area. We thought thought the price was very reasonable and provided good value.
We would recommend MacArthur House to anyone traveling in the area and we will return again.

The MacArthur House is a wonderful B&B. It is located a quiet street near the heart of the city. The hosts Max and Sherri are excellent and make you feel very welcome. The breakfasts are perfect. I stayed in the Alaska which has a beautiful vaulted ceiling. I would recommend this B&B to anyone attending a coarse at the North House Folk School which is just down the hill.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights at the MacArthur House! Max was a wonderful host, and his breakfasts were delicious without overloading us before an active day. The Superior Room was large and clean, and the neighorhood was quiet but close to the heart of town. And they are "green" in how they run the business, even composting their kitchen waste.

I think that the other 4 and 5 star reviewers pretty much captured the essence of this place. It is very clean, modern, and the common spaces are very nice. We thought that the breakfast was quite good and perhaps a pleasant change to the "graze and go" breakfast buffets. They cooked a pre-determined full breakfast - and then served it at 8:30 AM. The format meant that we shared breakfast with the other guests and led to some interesting conversation.

We have stayed in this B&B owned by Max and Sherri many times (it happens that it has always been in the fall of the year). Always a great experience, clean, quiet and great breakfast. Also they are both wonderful people.

Room Tip: Go to their website and check it out. They have now added two cabins so look at those.
