Stopped in here for coffee in 2013 and came away with some great recommendations for North Shore restaurants....and good coffee! The owners took the time to give us some great info on the North Shore. We'll be stopping in again this year!

We have enjoyed our stays at Spirit of Gitche Gummi very much. Even though we don't take a lakeside room, there is a cozy sitting room with beautiful lake views where we could take our scones and coffee. The last week in June is when the lupines bloom, and they are on full display in the garden. The hosts are... More

My husband and I stayed here in the fall of 2012. We needed a quiet retreat space and found it here. The first night, the only room available was Get-A-Way, but we were able to move into the larger, Moonrise room after that. The host was very friendly and good communication through booking to check out. She did everything to... More

This is a really sweet b&b. The owners are great! Fresh baked scones and coffee in the morning were warm and lovely. There's great rock climbing nearby if that's what you're looking for. One of the nights we stayed there we wandered out back behind the b&b and lit a fire and there were fireflies all over the place and... More

This is a cozy little B&B and a great place to stay on the North Shore. The location is great with several state parks very close by and just a short drive to a nearby small towns with restaurants, etc. The hosts were fantastic--very friendly, knowledgeable about the local area (gave great recommendations for everything from restaurants to hiking trails),...

Gitche Gumee was a very lovely place to spend a couple of nights. The lakeview room featured not only a lake view but deer sightings too. The view of the lake and the privacy and quiet of the property were perfect for relaxing...and the scones and coffee were first class!

This is a great B & B if you are looking for a clean comfortable place to crash at a reasonable price. I believe there are 4 rooms at this place. We stayed in room 4 which had a queen size select confort bed and the windows overlooked the lake. We got to wake up to the sunrise over Lake... More
