We enjoyed our stay at the Mangy Moose. Our room was clean, cute, quiet and comfortable. All our expectations were met (or exceeded). We will definitely want to stay there again next time we visit Grand Marais.

My fiancé and I travel to Grand Marais every fall and choose to stay at that Mangy Moose. Every second from check in to check out is an outstanding experience- we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else!

Wonderful people, great rooms, close to the lake. This is the second time I've stayed there and am never disappointed. The knotty pine walls and comfy beds are so welcoming after a day of hiking the lake.

Wonderful room at a great price. Neat and clean, the owners thought of everything you may need during your stay. They were very friendly and helpful. It was within walking distance of many downtown shops, businesses and restaurants, Not your cookie cutter motel.

A perfect little place to lift the spirits with so many special touches to make the traveler feel comfortable. Loved staying at the Mangy Moose and the location was excellent for exploring the quaint community of Grand Marais. I look forward to my next three night visit to the Moose Haus.

Location of the Motel is excellent in conjunction with the town. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Grand Marais reminded my husband and I of Bayfield, WI. on a larger scale. We stayed in town and did not do any extra traveling with it being our first visit. We saved a little for next time and restaurants too. For breakfast...

The Mangy Moose provides the perfect balance of privacy and care. After several weeks and trips the past year involving caregiving of ill relatives, I wanted a quiet spot to reflect and refresh. I appreciated not having to keep track of a key and not having maid service during my stay. On the other hand, I knew that if I...

We spent 3 nights at the Mangy Moose and were very impressed with this establishment. This motel's owners show a great deal of pride in what they have. Our room was spotless. The food prep area was separate from the main room with nice counter space to work on. We never heard any of our neighbors even though there was...
