Spotlessly maintained! Comfy and quiet! RIGHT on the shore with a swing to stargaze from and a fire pit if you want to build a bonfire. Very friendly. Loved our quick stay this fall and will definitely return for a longer stay! (For those that don't like bed and breakfast type stays, you will be happy ---we stayed as a...

We have stayed here numerous times over the last 15 years. If you are looking for friendly, cozy lodging right on the lake, this is it. Lee and Scott are helpful hosts and have provided lots of seating overlooking the lake. My favorite is the double swing. My husband enjoys building a nightly fire and plenty of firewood is provided....

Thanks for sharing your most recent stay with us. We have had a fantastic fall with many of opportunities for guests to engage with others by the bon fire. This is one of the amenities we offer that I feel allows a true outdoor north shore experience. We look forward to your next stay.

Room was well maintained and clean. Unit 3 has a good size bathroom, separate kitchen and living area with picture window facing the water. The price was reasonable compared with other available hotels. Free WIFI was OK for email but not streaming.

Thanks for the review. We do take pride in providing our guests with clean accommodations and appreciate the 5 star rating on this. Our Wi-Fi is not what many are used to but we are pleased that Broadband finally came to our area this past June, so that we can at least offer better service than the previous satellite system...

Have been visiting the North Shore of Superior for past 6 years and have stayed at Thomsonite the past 5. View is spectacular of Lake Superior from the Inn, along with great accommodations. Scott and Lee manage a clean and peaceful inn that just seems like home, and would not think of staying anywhere else. Close proximity to many trails,...
