Wonderful lodge right on the lakeside! Fire pit for use and a swing to sit on on the side of the lakeshore while watching the stars and listen to the crashing waves. Friendly host. Clean. Cozy. Close to Grand Marais, ski slopes, etc. Prices VERY reasonable.

My wife and I had the pleasure and good fortune of staying at Thomsonite Beach Inn & Suites for three nights last weekend. We found the accommodations clean and cozy, the hosts (Lee and Scott) wonderful and the location could not have been better. The Inn is only a 10 minute drive from Grand Marais, and only 20 minutes from...

Just did an overnight stay at Thomsonite Beach, our room was very spacious and was equipped with- a coffee maker, microwave oven, and frig. The staff was very accommodating. There was no hair dryer in the room, but I would think they would of had one in the office to use. Beautiful scenery and shoreline to relax by. Will stay...

My how time flies. Sorry for the delay in thanking you for your review. We do get one night guests as they are traveling around the lake or making a quick trip to the North Shore.

We stayed two nights in Unit 8 and LOVED IT. From the comfortable bed and the beautiful view of Lake Superior from our private deck to the hikes recommended by Lee (the owner), everything about Thomsonite Beach Inn was perfect. Thank you!

We only stayed 1 night but wish we had more time. Beautiful green space looking out toward the lake with grills, games, chairs, and picnic tables. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable and staff friendly.

Located at mile marker 103.5 between Lutsen and Grand Marais, visitors to the area are en route to Grand Marais. So they drive on by and say next time we will stop. Sometimes it takes a few trips passing by our property before people stop and check us out, but once they do we often get them for future reservations....

We spent two night in room #4. The best parts of our stay were climbing down to the basalt rocks where the waves were breaking and the evening bonfire where we got tips on hiking trails and things to do from fellow travelers. The room was small but clean and the kitchenette worked fine for making breakfast and lunches. We...
