Stayed here for 2 nights in late October. The Inn is in a great location, walking distance to most restaurants, shops, and attractions. However, the rooms need TLC. The rooms reminded me of the decor in the 50’s. The beds were saggy, walls need paint,...More

No central heat. Was told the boiler was broken. Didn't even offer a discount for no heat all night. Nowhere in the building to get bottled water (tap water was nasty). Broken window and casement was cracked and peeling. Bathroom fan was broken.

The only thing I can say that is positive was the sunrise over the lake! Many, many things that need to be done at this establishment. Old, outdated and run down. Carpet, ceiling, bathrooms, hallways, bedding, linen...... it all needs to be redone. The carpet...More

About
Description
LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! Artist's Point is at our back door. Quiet, away from U.S. Highway 61. With lake view rooms and sundeck at water's edge, The Shoreline has been first choice for generations of families. More Fireside, lake view lobby. This charming village is on Lake Superior's North Shore less than two hours Northeast of Duluth, on scenic Highway 61. Grand Marais is the Hub of activities in Cook County, located at the foot of the Gunflint Trail, the gateway to the famous Boundary Waters Canoe Area, and remote Isle Royale. Just ten minutes to the Gunflint Hills Golf Course or Pincushion cross country center and twenty minutes to Lutsen Mountains Ski Area, Alpine Slide and the Superior National Golf Course.Walk to shops, restaurants, the lighthouse and the Grand Marais recreation center and pool. Free continental breakfast. Rooms with king beds are available, as are family or connecting rooms. Smoke-free environment. Traditional charm. Personal service. A guest once said, "It's like coming home." Less

Sorry I saw this so late. But... We have not been there in summer for many years so I am not sure about how effective their AC is. I do believe they have it but I would contact the hotel directly and talk with them.
