Most importantly- The Storefront has been listed since 2015 with 30-40 5 Star reviews. We combined listings when we expanded into The Mayhew Inn, so we lost all of those reviews. We archived them on our end and can email them through as needed. Now, on with the description!

A bit of history about The Mayhew Inn:
In 1873, Henry and Thomas Mayhew had a store in Grand Marais that served as a trading post, which was located on a point formed by the east and west bays. This is the approximate location of the current Coast Guard Station. Their brother Joseph Mayhew was also the first lighthouse keeper in 1886. They had a house on the point and then built the first lodging establishment in Grand Marais called The Mayhew Hotel. The building that served as the Mayhew’s house now sits as the Cook County Historical Society & Museum. Many of the archival images that you now see were taken from the approximate vantage point of the new Mayhew Inn.
