Lodging near Two Harbors

Hello,

I am going to be travelling with my husband and our 1 year old in September (mid-week stay), and was looking for lodging recommendations. We are thinking a 1 bedroom would be best (so we don't have to sit in a dark quiet hotel room when our son goes to bed). I saw that Superior Shores, Grand Superior Lodge, and Bluefin Bay all look nice and have comparable looking rooms. Does the on-site and nearby restaurants, activities and recreation differ for these resorts? Superior Shores seems to have the lowest rates.

You are correct, Superior Shores has the lowest rates. IMO, both Blue Fin and Grand Superior are nicer resorts. We prefer staying in the Tofte/Lutsen area where Blue Fin is vs. the location of Grand Superior Lodge. Grand Superior has a smaller resort feel The staff at both Blue Fin and Grand Superior are very friendly and attentive. The rooms are clean as well as nicely furnished at both places. We prefer the setting at Blue Fin. Both offer resort activities. Both have complimentary bikes and child trailers. Blue Fin has an outdoor hot tub. We strongly prefer Blue Fin's restaurant over Grand Superior's.

Go online to Blufin Bay and look at the floor plans of the various lodging choices. When you get to the Blufin web page look under accommodations and select condos and townhomes from the drop down menu to view the floor plans. Since you have an infant, you likely would be better off with such a lodging style rather than just a one bedroom economy room which is like a motel room.

We agree that Blufin is the best choice for lodging along the North Shore. Get a reservation soon since early fall is a popular time on the North Shore.

We used to stay at Superior Shores a lot during the winter. The 1 bedroom suites are nice, come with a fireplace, and a full kitchen, so you can make your own meals if you wish. (Handy when that little one is asleep). Ask for a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor for a view of the lake, as the 1st floor view is blocked by a high berm on the beach. SS also has that great beach right out your door, very nice for walks, or sitting by the shore watching the waves come in, or skipping stones.

Be aware, as MNrandy pointed out, Bluefin is not in Two Harbors, but is in Tofte, 1 hr further up the shore.

Two harbors has more dining options then does Tofte. If you're up for the drive, (1.5 hrs from Two Harbors), Grand Marais has more choices, both in lodging and dining.
