There are so many great selections in this bookstore you could purchase your whole years worth of reading material here. We visit once a year in the fall and always look forward to getting some good reads. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and always willing to make reading suggestions. Such a great little bookstore!

Beautiful place to buy a book and walk outside to read it by the beauty of the lake! Small little place so there isn't a huge selection but very quaint. We were there when they had an event with William Kent Krueger. It was held outside by the water and was a fun experience to have a meet and greet... More

This indépendant bookstore is worth the drive! The exterior is a darling little house and the interior has big windows that look out onto Lake Superior. It houses an excellent selection of books, including lots of regional books. The best part is really the staff. They are smart, nice and willing to spend lots of time with you. Join their... More

This is a really cute bookstore right on the lake. The people are helpful and they have a good selection of material. If you're looking for that perfect book to read by the lake, this is the stop.

I'm an avid reader, so I search out good bookstores wherever I go: The Strand in NYC, Powell's in Portland, Politics & Prose in DC, etc. Drury Lane Books belongs in the same category, though on a smaller scale. Don't be fooled by its small size, though. Bigger isn't necessarily better, especially if you have to wade through dozens of... More

Stopped in to browse around. There were several books crammed into this small store. Lots of new books and classics too. Prices were average.

Nice selection of books, quaint little place to browse. I found the staff to be very friendly. The gal working there the day we visited provided a couple of restaurant choices in town, which was most helpful. Who knows better than the locals on where to find the right places?

Terrific, knowledgable staff that LOVE to recommend! So fear not - it may be small, but they have a solid selection of fiction, non-fiction, bestsellers - a marvelous kids section as well as local titles! There during a full moon? Stop in for Full Moon Reading night!
