We spent a few days in the honeymoon cabin to do some ATV riding and sightseeing. The cabin was very cozy with a nice fireplace and comfortable bed! We were able to access the ATV trail from the room which was very nice. Gary is a great owner, very accomodating and friendly. We will definitely be back!

Spent a few days on the North Shore and found the Whispering Pines to be a good home base for exploring the area. This is a well maintained and clean classic motel with a little northwoods charm that is just a short walk or drive to the Tettegouche State Park visitor center. Situated on a hill north of Hwy 61...

We have stayed two times in the last month for atv riding. Both times the Owners were super friendly and accomodating. The rooms are clean and simple. They have a fire every night. The hotel is close to the river and trails. We have stayed other places but would hands down stay here again. Would stay again and reccomend to... More

We were on our way back from a bear hunting trip in Canada over Labor day weekend, that we'll just say, was the most horrible event in my lifetime. We called the trip short due to the hospitality of the Canadian outfitters and decided to head back to the states to try and salvage a trip and do some fishing... More

Whispering Pines is a clean, comfortable motel, close to the Superior Hiking Trail system. But what makes it great is the owner, Gary. He was very friendly and accommodating, making sure we had everything we needed. We were there on a hiking trip, and he even offered to drive us to the trail head if needed. Although we didn't use...

Love this place! Jill & Gary the owners are the best! Friendly, warm & welcoming. Will definitely be on the list for repeat visits when we make it to the North Shore. Perfectly positioned between Duluth, Ely, & State parks are close too. Wish we had more time to stay.

My husband and I stayed at the Whispering Pines Motel on a recent trip to the North Shore. The owners were wonderful and the room we had was great. It was clean, well taken care of, and cozy. The owners were so considerate and thoughtful. Our room had everything we needed, and Gary and Jill offered us their grill for... More

We felt welcome here on a midweek visit. The couple that own the motel and are renovating it were friendly and accommodating, even building a fire in the fire pit though we were the only guests. We prefer small, owner-occupied places to chain motels, so this was perfect for us. It's set in a wooded area outside of town--there was... More

We were on a bike trip from Thunder Bay to Duluth and got caught in a storm. The light was turned on as we were riding past the motel and even though they didn't have enough rooms to accommadate all 16 of us they made do with what we had. They even gave us a suite at regular room price... More
