We have always had great food, and great service. Love the biscuits.
This 9 cabin resort is on North Shore Senic Drive. The owners have made the cabins & many of the artistic furnishings out of the timber including the queen size beds. The 2BR, 1BA is $200/night & has everything including Internet, fireplace, & big TV. It has 2 futons & is perfect for families. Breakfast is served whatever time works for you. The other smaller cabins have queen beds in a BR or in a studio apartment. All have frontal lake view decks.
My wife and I were driving late on hwy 61 along the shore of Lake Superior, looking for a place to stay and happened upon the Inn on Gitche Gummee. We spoke with a couple out front taking an evening stroll and they highly recommended the place. Venturing to see if they had anything available, we wandered in and, speaking to a gentleman asked if they might have a room with two beds. He replied that he might just have what we were looking for and we walked up a flight of stairs to a gorgeous full home on site overlooking the Lake. We were treated not only to "two beds" but an entire home with two huge bedrooms, fireplace, full dining facilities, hot tub, full kitchen and living room with a huge TV! We were astonished at the offering and asked the price of an overnight stay. It turned out that the stay cost about the same as we had been paying for motels along the way. We were served a delicious breakfast in the morning in the lake view alcove of our "home" at no extra cost. The owners were very nice folks and we couldn't have been happier. This is a place I highly recommend!!!
If you really want to experience what is so famous about the North Shore of Lake Superior, this has it all. First, the site is removed enough from the Lake that you won't get battered in a storm, but close enough that the shimmering chi of its water bathe you in all seasons. Second, the decor is personal, north woodsy and therefore non-corporate. Complaints on this site about a black fly or two in the room indicate an abhorrence for nature that does not belong here. If you leave the door open, insects come in. Poisoning the room with Raid is criminal. There was a fly swatter on the windowsill waiting to do the job. Third, the hosts are very loving, serene people who exude the kindness and calm that people are trying to recapture in this natural grandeur. The B&B is close to Duluth (15 minute drive), in easy distance of hiking/biking, has a great gift shop, and is a 3 minute drive from the best restaurant in the state: The New Scenic Cafe. The front yard is landscaped for gardeners, barbecues, and kids' play areas. Also, the breakfast is fabulous. We had a large platter for two with crepes and maple syrup, spicy omelet over bacon strips, and fresh fruit. There is, of course, a proper coffee maker in the room.
Great place to come to get away . We have stayed here many times each time in a different room and all the rooms are welcoming and relaxing. There breakfast is to die for and it's cool how they always put a message in the pancakes
Lovely inn on old Hwy. 61 just after the split. It's got a bit of a European feel to it. Might be a converted motel. We stayed in the Wolves' Den suite. I had no idea it had a small kitchenette in it, as that isn't in the photos. There was the cutest little stove, a microwave, refrigerator, and coffee machine. The bathroom was a renovated closet, truly a water closet in the most basic sense of the phrase. My husband is 6'2" and fit, but it was a bit tight. It did have a shower/bath squeezed into it. The room was extremely clean and it had a view of the lake from the bed. It was cool to wake up and watch the whitecaps roll in off the lake. There is the road between the inn and the lake, but we were actually closer to the lake then we've been in many of the lakeside hotels we've stayed in. The couple who own the inn obviously put a lot of love into the grounds, nothing was blooming any more but I could tell the gardens in front of the inn are beautiful in bloom. The couple were very pleasant to talk to and prefer to take reservations by phone so they can talk to their customers. Our confirmation was mailed to us before our stay. Again, very old world feeling. We could hear the family below us but it didn't keep me awake, and I'd suggest getting up a little early to make sure you get a hot shower. Also, it's got a bit of a dated feel to the rooms. We didn't mind. Because of the location's proximity to Duluth we came and went several times during the day, but still felt rather tucked away. The wood carvings around the bed were beautiful. Definitely NOT a cookie cutter place to stay. So, if you don't mind some quirks, I would definitely recommend this inn. :)
Best happy Hour Best PatioBest serviceBest drinksBest Nacho's!!! Love Little Angies, such a fun place!
Nothing but great service from here! I have been going here for a couple years and have never had a bad experience! The girls have always been professional and all my visits there have always been on time! I loved this place and the people so much that I chose them for my wedding day hair and makeup. My bridal party and I were all done in a timely manner and the salon girls were even able to squeeze in an unexpected guest who came an hour later. They supplied stuff for mimosas and breakfast snacks for us that morning which was wonderful since it was a crazy morning! All our hair and makeup looked wonderful and lasted all day! I also recently got extensions put in and they did a wonderful job!! My hair looks and feels fantastic! Highly recommend them for all your salon needs!!
If I could give this place zero stars, I would. I went in for a make up trial for my wedding. The girl started doing my make up was very sweet and acted professional, but after discussion with her she told me she was still in high school with no professional education. My make up was terrible, she re-did it and it was still terrible. I left without saying anything (which I regret) and payed for the trial. I emailed Tessa, the wedding coordinator, with my concerns, since she emailed me the next day to check in and see how things went. I was very polite and shared with her my concerns and she never responded. This is not a professional business and they do not respond to concerns. Would not recommend them to anyone since they have unlicensed/educated employees and do not mention that to customers.*I also had my engagement photos scheduled for afterwards, which I was told is a good idea. I had to run back to the hotel room and wash off my make up and do it myself.
Well my son and family had been staying for several nights and whoever it was that had been checking him in allowed them to pay late I called asked if I can pay for room with my card over phone she said no I had to come in so I said I would be over when I got there she must have changed her mind because a friend needed a place so she packed up my son and grandsons belongings not vey nice and placed them in clear garbage bags and put everything out side by garbage telling me to get a hold of my son to come get his belongings so I turned around and walked away only to have the drunks she had helping pack my sons belongings taking pictures of me and making gestures about money I had left as I needed to get to work when my fiancée arrived to help my son the lady from motel was asking him to come back does she do this to all her customers pretty sad and not very good work ethic unless she is running a wh___house needless to sayt zûyur ycompany that was going to check in at the motel and stay for three weeks will no longer be choosing this motel and neither will anyone else's know !! What a shame to have missed out on business of frequent travelers get rid of that trailer trash and you could have a great motel instead of the trash she is that's the kind coming to stay
