Besides the B&B, MacArthurs have cabins two blocks from the Lake. For a gals getaway, we had a three bedroom cabin/one barh, which was clean and right in the downtown area close to everything. The cabins will be closed for the winter in November, but the prices are very reasonable!!

We stayed in the Cedar Cabin. It was even better than expected from the photos, etc. Clean and comfortable and well-stocked with everything needed. It was a very relaxing atmosphere in a fun little town and beautiful area of northern Minnesota

This is perhaps the most difficult review I have done. I want to be fair and honest! The pro's of staying at this B&B are that the breakfasts are very good and sitting at a dining room table sharing stories with other travelers is fun and you can learn some good helpful tips from others. The rooms are nice and... More

We're glad you enjoyed the cleanliness of our home, the breakfast and the other guests. One of the ways we keep our house clean is to ask our guests to remove their shoes at the front door. That's the only rule we can think of. When our guests arrive we welcome them and ask if they would take off their... More

My husband and I stayed in the Superior Room for four nights, and we were so pleased with the lovely room, delicious breakfasts, and overall ambiance of the bed & breakfast.

After visiting Grand Marais for 20 years, we have finally found the premier destination. Max and Sherrie are the best hosts we have ever had and are friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable and yet unobtrusive. The house is spotless, quiet and stylish. The breakfasts were creative and delicious. We would highly recommend MacArthur House. We will be back.

We stayed in the Pine cabin with our one year old son, and it was just what we were looking for: clean, comfortable, two bedrooms, and full kitchen capabilities only a few blocks from the shops and restaurants in Grand Marais. Our son crawled around every inch of that cabin and was no dirtier than when we brought him (a... More

My husband and I traveled from Naperville, IL and stayed with Max and Sherri for 2 nights while visiting Grand Marais,MN. The Bed and breakfast was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was shared with other guests around a large table and both mornings it was wonderful! Sheri and Max were delightful!
