We tried to avoid the “big properties” for lodging, we found many options and would highly recommend the Hungry Hippie Hostel in Grand Marais. We met another couple on the Circle Tour and traded recommendations. Our favorite spot was the Big Bay Lighthouse B&B – the property was beautiful and the hosts were amazing. We also stayed at the US Coast Guard crews Quarters in Paradise, it was helpful to be on property to get into the museum before the tour buses arrived.
