Cozy place to stay on the north shore
Property was just as listed. Clean, updated and many amenities available for our stay. Board games available which we enjoyed using one evening. Full sized EO shower and hand soap/lotion provided which we thought was a great addition.
Views are fabulous from indoors and outdoors. It was great to be able to walk down on the shore right from the house. Close drive to Lutsen and Grand Marais.
Thanks for a great stay
Great location to reach all the state parks and waterfalls. Views spectacular at the unit. Very clean.
We had the opportunity to stay at this property for 7 days. The area is a little remote, but that's perfect! The condo is exactly as described and pictured, very clean, with comfy beds, nice linens, and everything you need to have a great stay. There is an issue of stairs, it's great coming in as it is all down, but leaving there is an indoor flight and an outdoor split flight. The owner makes note of this so it wasn't a surprise, just want to let others know...there are stairs. They did not pose a problem for us but could for others. Suggest you travel light! Bathrooms are nicely remodeled and clean with plenty of towels and toiletries supplied. We were very comfortable staying here and adjusted to the Apple TV...a new wrinkle for us!
We enjoyed roaming up and down the coast both to the north and to the south. There are numerous state parks with great hiking trails, to beautiful waterfalls. Don't think young and athletic as most of these trails are suitable for even the minimally active. I'm 72 and found everything doable.
We enjoyed the views from every window in the condo...sunrise is the best! We walked the beach just below and sat out on the rock cliff on Lake Superior.
We enjoyed many of the local restaurants, especially in the town of Grand Marais, about 20 miles north. Our favorite was the Harbor House...excellent food, quaint setting and good service. There is a bakery in Schroeder that does a good breakfast and has wonderful baked goods. The Lockport (?) convenience store (just north of the condo on the east side of the road) has wonderful up north Pasties! We picked up a couple to heat in the oven one night for dinner after a day at the Ski Lodge (Lutsen Mountain). They were great!
Speaking of the Ski Lodge...it's just up the road. We took a drive up and did the gondola to the base of Moose Mountain (I think) and then hiked the remaining 800 ' to the top. So worth the trip up, the views (even from the base) are fantastic. They say you can see for 100 miles...I believe it.
All in all this was a great location for our exploration of the north shore, I would recommend this rental for anyone traveling to the area. Word of advise, if you plan to take the sea plane from Grand Marias or Ferry from Grand Portage, to Isle Royal...plan ahead, they book up fast, pick up staples in Two Harbors as local stores are very high on basic items. There are 3 food stores in Grand Marais as well. The co-op is nice and there is also an IGA...
Great place to stay, fantastic location!!
We stayed 4 nights at Gull Harbor with our 2 kids (ages 10 & 12) We love the North Shore and have stayed many spots. Gull Harbor was easy to find, clean & perfect size for our family. I liked the layout of this condo - it would work for 2 couples as well with one bedroom having its own private bathroom and the other bedroom right next to the other bathroom. The unit was stocked with everything we needed including: games, books, Bluetooth speaker, water filtration pitcher, seasonings for cooking and more! We loved being close to the lake, and there is a nice beach to throw rocks and climb too. The fire ring near the lake was wonderful, we didn’t use the sauna this trip.
The one thing we did notice was that you can hear people above you walking quite easily, so if you’re a light sleeper this may bother some. The beds also seemed a bit small, but we did sleep pretty well. I loved that both bedrooms and living room had decks with a gorgeous view and we slept with the sliding glass doors cracked and listened to the waves crash. We did use the tv later at night for Netflix which was wonderful. We loved the location....close to temperance, lutsen, golf course and a 20 minute drive to Grand Marais.
Fika coffee is right down the road and has a fabulous iced maple latte, and Coho cafe has yummy homemade soups. Thanks for a great stay.
A little slice of paradise
This place was better than we could have imagined. We enjoyed our stay so much! The property is right on the water. You can hear the waves crash against land as you drift to sleep. We had a fire in the condo, enjoyed the sunrise off of the balcony and explored all that Grand Marais has to offer.
Thank you for making this a true getaway. We plan to come back soon.
would do it again
Was perfect for what we were looking for in the area. Very clean, quiet, bedding and towels were plentiful, beds comfortable. Views of Lake Superior are priceless
The town of Tofte is located just 90 miles east (north) of Duluth, a few miles west (south) of Lutsen and Grand Marais. There are restaurants and shopping within the town of Tofte, there are several trailheads nearby to the Superior Hiking Trail, Lutsen Ski Resort is just a 15 minute drive away and the 2015 "Coolest Small Town in America", Grand Marais, is only a 25 minute drive to the east (north).
