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... More

We love Duluth and the North Shore! This was our first state at the Inn. What a nice spot! Of course it didn't hurt that the November weather was some of the best! We stayed in the Loon's Nest. Our room was very clean, quaint and the bed was very comfortable! Beautiful view! We enjoyed sitting out on the patio... More

We have been coming to the North Shore for 20 years. This cozy little Inn is just what we need as a getaway from our hectic lives. Butch and Julie are the ultimate hosts. Our rooms are always very clean and well stocked. We appreciate the kitchen but also know many fine restaurants in the area. It just doesn't get... More

We have stayed at the Inn on Gitchee Gumee twice. Each unique suite or cabin is decorated with rustic Lake Superior themes, many items hand-hewn by the owners. Throughout the summer, the grounds are an explosion of color with floral gardens, shrubs, water features, and hummingbirds. The firepit blazes at night where guests can visit or just gaze across the... More

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... More

Unfortunately I failed to search prior reviews before arriving at the inn. When we arrived and entered the 3 Bears Cottage I was sorely disappointed to find the pictures posted on their site did not accurately reflect the well-worn condition of the accommodations. The king size bed was very uncomfortable and the queen room's decor was a bit creepy. Our... More
