We had read the reviews and expected cabins, and an opportunity to relax in peace. Turns out there were not cabins but one small lodge right next to the road. Yes, you were on the lake but far from quiet and secluded. The person who checked us in made us feel as if we were interrupting him and did not...

As a property owner it is also disappointing when we do not meet our guests expectations when they stay with us. We apologize that your one night lodging with us fell short of your expectations. While most properties on the North Shore do not have AC because Lake Superior usually keeps us comfortable for all but a few days a...

We were very pleased with our stay here. The owners, Scott & Lee Bergstrum, were very helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome. Our room was quite large and had been recently updated. It was spotlessly clean and the queen bed was very comfortable. The location is quiet and the views of the lake are spectacular. We will...

we were lucky to get a one night stay. it was sandwiched between two 2 night stays and not bookable online for that reason. Luckily I called to check to see if we could stay. Unit 2 has two bedrooms one which has a extensive view of the lake. I could hear the lake from that room at night! Our...

Thanks for taking the time to share your visit to the North Shore and your lodging experience with us. We never take for granted that we get to "sleep within a few feet of the lake" every night. The sound of the crashing waves or the still of the night can lull most people to sleep. We hope you will...

We recently stayed here with family and had a wonderful time. We took advantage of the fire pit and grills for family time and each had our own separate room (more like a cabin)for private time. The fully stocked kitchens were perfect, complete with coffee makers and all the pans and silverware needed for our stay. The owners were wonderful...

We are so glad that you enjoyed Lake Superior and our grounds with your family. Our property, location and knowledge of the area is the best amenity we have to offer our guests. There is nothing like spending an evening next to the lake with a bon fire enjoying conversations with friends and family. Thanks for sharing your lodging experience...

I've stayed here a number of times and will always return here when I come to the area. There are a few "motel" rooms to stay in if you don't want a full cabin experience. I've stayed in each of these rooms and found them extremely clean, comfortable and well serviced by the housekeeping staff. The owners Scott and Lee...

We had camped along the north shore of Lake Superior for many years. In 2002 we decided to take our last family vacation at a resort instead. We picked Thomsonite Beach and have been fans ever since Most recently, my wife on a spur of the moment decided to go back to the north shore and knew where we wanted...

We loved the owners what a beautiful place right on Lake Superior. My son was home from college and we loved the location and the rooms were lovely. Cabin like feel. We will visit again! Close to Grand Portage and it's National Parks. Was given restaurant information. Beautiful views

This place is a true gem--just like its namesake--and the owners really took care to make sure my experience was pleasant. I was from out of town--like, WAY out of town on the east coast, and am so glad I found the inn online. Scott upgraded my room to a lake view room free of charge, gave me a selection...

We are happy you found us too! Having Thomsonite imbedded in our shoreline creates a unique guest experience. The ability to observe the Thomsonite in its natural setting on our section of Lake Superior is another perk to a stay at Thomsonite Beach Inn. We have the best selection of jewelry, gemstones and little Thomsonite statutes, I call them, in...

Stayed in #7 and it was very private and near the shore. Hosts are so friendly! The unit was very clean and provided dishes for cooking. Wish there were a tv in bedroom but that's my preference and think it could use a couple of newer pans in the kitchen. Very nice stay!

Thanks for sharing your stay with us. I am happy to say I have purchased new pots/pans for unit 7. It was on my to do list and your response prompted a call to action. I can't say I'll get a TV in the bedroom at this time :) We look forward to having you as our guest on again...
