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.

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!
