A Family Business
We are Jay, Rose and Ennis Arrowsmith DeCoux. We've lived in Grand Marais since 2008 (with a year off when we moved to India). We live on-site in an adjoining apartment.
Jay is a canoe and kayak guide, beer brewer, sausage maker, and handyman extraordinaire. He is also the mayor of Grand Marais. He teaches at North House. He’s a crazy biker and trail runner (with lots of recommendations for you). Jay is the main contact for reservations. Check out his guiding business: Arrowhead Outdoor Adventures, his bike shop: Fireweed Bike Co-op, and his mayoral blog.
Rose is a children's author and storyteller, Swedish folk singer, pie baker and yoga instructor. She teaches at the Art Colony and North House. Check out Rose's middle grade novel The Marvelous Imagination of Katie Addams, SVEA Singers, and her website where you can grab a free mp3 download of her five favorite stories.
Ennis loves to ride his bike and is into Dungeons & Dragons. He will likely show you his books (and ask you to read to him), and share his toys with you. He’s also the concierge and will enthusiastically show you to your room.
Per is our cat. She's not allowed in the B&B, but she might greet you in the yard and allow you to give her a belly rub. (Here she is helping Rose with some editing).
