This is our 2nd time here. We were here years ago and enjoyed it. This time is no less enjoyable. Butch and Julie (owners) are very nice, accommodating and down to earth. The location is 3 miles north of Duluth on the north shore. We enjoy gazing out over Lake Superior and their gardens. The rooms all have different themes.... More

We stayed here for one night in July and loved it! Our room ("The Cabin") was cozy and comfortable for the three of us. The location near Duluth but on old Highway 61 was ideal too. We thoroughly enjoyed our omelette breakfast and the coffee (Alakef) was excellent! I highly recommend this hotel for your next visit along the North... More

We stayed in the Wolf Den. Great view of the lake. The room was very comfortable. Delicious coffee and warm fireplace. It was 20 below zero and snowing but we were enjoying every minute of it and they delivered us a wonderful breakfast at 8 in the morning even in this weather. Breakfast was served only every other day but... More

We love the Inn at Gitche Gumee - Butch's breakfasts are made with love and delivered hot...he was sad his chocolate covered strawberries were beginning to melt! Thanks Butch and Julie for your attention to detail, your small valentines touches in our room with little hearts hanging around - and most of all for your clean rooms and kind hospitality.... More

A must stay! The hospitality is unbelievable! Julie and Butch are amazing, Julie makes you feel right at home, and Butch will make you a wonderful breakfast (if you would like). The views of Lake Superior are incredible from every one of their Cabins! We stayed in the "Wolfs Den" for two nights, and "Three Bears Cottage for two nights.... More

The room we stayed was lovely, the view was fantastic, and served breakfast in our room was delicious. The odd part is communication. We asked to reserve the room in Novemeber for May. We wanted to pay at that time. We had given our card number for reservation. They did not charge it. We actually forgot about it. They in... More

I have stayed at this Inn several times through the years. My first was before they tore down the old cabins back in 1992. Then it was reasonably priced and very welcoming. Today they have fancy two-story cabins with minimal parking behind. A giant garden is laid out in front of the cabins. When I stayed there the last time... More

The room was so cozy and welcoming... and the views.. stunning. Breakfast was brought to our room in a basket and had danish's, muffins and juice. The Inn has more of a bed and breakfast feel which was a nice change from the chain hotels we've stayed at in Duluth. The bed was so comfortable, it had a well stocked... More
