    This was a very unique motel. The owners were very friendly, made us feel like family. Rooms all furnished differently and unique. Quiet, restful. Easy access to anywhere north or south on the shore. Will definitely return!

    In addition to the novelty of staying in a boxcar, this is a very clean, quite, and well maintained hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location near Two Harbors and the nearby state parks is excellent. I would highly recommend it.
