Beautiful home, light and airy, spacious room, views of lake, convenient walk to town and restaurants, friendly hosts, and delicious breakfasts! We'll definitely be back the next time we decide to hit the Superior hiking Trail.

This was our first experience staying in a bed & breakfast and it was excellent!! Our room was large, very clean and comfortable. Max and Sherrie were very cordial and friendly hosts. The breakfasts were great. Just a short walk to several restaurants and shops. Great place to relax and enjoy the North woods and Lake Superior.

McArthur House is a wonderful B& B. The rooms are light, airy and roomy. The gardens are gorgeous and the hosts are wonderful people. They can help you out with whatever you need. The food was fresh, homemade and delicious. Could not have asked for more.

Clean room, private bath, delicious breakfast & delightful hosts.....what more could you ask for? Max and Sherri make you feel right at home in their home while visiting Grand Marais. We hiked & shopped and saw the beautiful sights all day and rested comfortably in the birch room of MacArthur House. Highly recommend!
