We had a fantastic time at the Inn on Gitche Gumee! We stayed in the Hideout cabin, which was clean, had a comfy bed, and a whirlpool tub. Each morning we'd drink our coffee on the deck overlooking the lake (across the road) and the beautiful grounds. One night they even set us up for a bon fire. An added... More

My wife and I were driving late on hwy 61 along the shore of Lake Superior, looking for a place to stay and happened upon the Inn on Gitche Gummee. We spoke with a couple out front taking an evening stroll and they highly recommended the place. Venturing to see if they had anything available, we wandered in and, speaking... More

We chose this inn for a last minute weekend getaway. The inn sits on a hillside across the road from Lake Superior. Although the room description claims a “view of the Duluth Harbor Aerial Lift Bridge”, you will need your binoculars to actually see it. Otherwise, it does have a nice view of the lake, and that is about the... More

This was our second stay here in two years. Each has been wonderful. Butch and Julie are very accommodating and welcoming people. The suite in which we've stayed each time is dog friendly, so we can sit on our deck with our Golden, watch the lake, and enjoy a pizza that we've picked up from Clearwater Grille, just 1.5 miles...

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
