Scott and Lee were very welcoming. They made sure we had everything we needed, and gave some recommendations about places to eat in Grand Marais. The next time we head up the North Shore, we will definitely be staying here again!More

You can get a small but equally charming room or one with more room. Whether you face the lake or not, it's the most serene place to stay and only about 10 minutes from Grand Marais. The only spot in the world where there is...More

Such a cute place! Close to Grand Marais. If you’re here during the winter, they run package deals with Lutsen Mountain for ski tickets. We stayed in room 9 and had a great view of the lake and a very comfortable bed. Would recommend!More

Response from Thomsonite, Owner at Thomsonite Beach Inn & SuitesResponded January 2, 2018

When given the opportunity, I encourage guests to stay with us during the winter with the ski and stay packages. Lutsen Mountains has spectacular views of Lake Superior, so why not get a closer view and chose a lodging property on the lake. We are...More

The wind was howling, felt bitter cold and we wanted a place that faced the lake, was warm, comfy and clean. And it was all those things. We could hear the waves booming and loved the view. Our hostess was helpful about hiking spots, good...More

Sure but remember that it is shallow off our ledge rock shoreline. He may catch more "rock bass" than fish. Go ahead and give it a try.
