We loved the attention to detail this place offers. Organic coffee, Aveda products, great selection of books, S'mores and a bonfire if you want, even a Yoga mat in the closet. It was really nice to have pots and pans and everything else we needed to prepare meals. The bed was super comfortable, the view of Lake Superior was incredible,... More

On two separate occasions, the suite we rented had a non-functioning fireplace. There is a sign clearly posted in the room stating that the fireplace is to be used for supplementing the in-floor heat (which can be slow). We notified the front desk on both visits and were provided with a space heater. After our last visit (broken fireplace #2),... More

We appreciate that you’ve taken the time to contact management and to share your experience on TripAdvisor. We’re sorry we were unable to accommodate your request for a different room as it was Spring Break and we were full. As our General Manager explained, the fireplaces’ main function is for ambiance (as they give off little to no heat). We... More

East Bay Suites is conveniently located in downtown Grand Marais on the lake shore and within easy walking distance of restaurants, galleries, and Artist’s Point. Our reception was friendly and efficient. The establishment is pet-friendly (dirty paw cloths by the doors). Our reservation (a one-bedroom suite) was clean and very comfortable. All suites have a view of Lake Superior. Their... More

East Bay Suites was clean and very comfortable. Customer service was also very good. It was close to the ski resort and we did not have to drive very far. Restaurants were also in close proximity. We enjoyed our stay here.
