We booked a cabin for 2 a week before we wanted to come up to the Duluth/North Shore area for a weekend.
We drove up on a Friday afternoon to the Duluth area. North Shore Cottages are just north of Duluth right on Scenic 61 about 1/2 mile north of the split of Hwy 61 and Scenic 61. The cottages are on the left side.
Checking in was quick and staff is very friendly. Family owned and I felt welcomed as soon as we walked into the office.
The cabins all face the lake. Some small cabins and a few multi room cabins ideal for families. Each have a parking space with well groomed grounds with cute decorations. Many fire pits for bonfires and the firewood was FREE! (a plus when you're expecting to pay $5 a bundle)
The cabins are very clean and rustic looking. Some have kitchenettes with a small fridge and microwave. Each cabin has it's own charm but all are updated. Each cabin also had a small BBQ grill and outdoor chairs for relaxing.
At night was very qyiet and soothing to hear the waves splash on the shores as ships drift by in the night.
North Shore Cottages is very close to Duluth while right on Scenic 61 so just a hop skip and jump to Two Harbors.
Plenty of gift shops and cafe's just mins away by car. Holiday gas station is close in case you need last minute goodies.
Staff was wonderful, awesome views and plenty of space regardless if it is a family gathering or a couple's getaway!
We stayed on a weekend and for the 2 of us in a small cabin we paid $59 per night plus tax. Price depnds on what cabin you get and what time of year it is.
We checked out the website and seen some of the pictures first, but the pictures just don't give the cabins and surroundings justice. www.northshorecottages.com
Good time for a great price!
As a former Carlson Wagonlit Travel agent, I rate this propert a 9 out of 10!
