This is a relaxing place for a retreat any time of year! The location is premium. Kirsten and Ted are awesome and accommodating. I enjoyed my 30th birthday at cottage 2! You can hear the lake and feel the power of superior. Dining in the area is delicious. The photo if from Tettegouche state park, right up the road. Many... More

Like some have said Small TV's with very few channels and WIFI keeps cutting out. If this is what you are worried about you are missing everything. Go for a walk down on the rocks and have a fire. Lots of nice parks around go enjoy yourself outside.

We got room #7- last one available at the time. Enjoyable time had by all. Loved the convenience of having a stove in our room. I definitely plan on returning. Only problem was no hot water on our last morning- had to heat some up for dishes. Oh well- The boo hoo was not being able to go on the... More

Thanks for you review! We are sorry that you did not have hot water on your last morning of your stay. We were not made aware of the problem and did not find out the hot water heater for your room was not working until we were cleaning the room. We always have spare appliances on-hand and the repair was... More

After reading so many great reviews, we booked our fall break here and got the very last available room for the weekend. We stayed in room#9 in the motel. The motel building is closer to the highway than the freestanding cabins. Overall the room was well-kept - we loved having a kitchenette to prepare some of our own meals. The... More

We spent three beautiful autumn days on the north shore of Lake Superior and are very glad we chose the Gooseberry Park Cottages as our base. The proprietors were hospitable and accommodating of our needs. The cabin was well furnished, with a full kitchen and a wonderful deck with view of Lake Superior. You will need to bring your own...

We stayed 2 nights in motel room # 10. Kirsten and Ted were SO genuinely friendly and accommodating. The rooms are very clean, quiet, nicely maintained/updated. It was nice to have fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room. Price was quite reasonable. There's a nice bit of shoreline that we enjoyed resting on after spending the day exploring other...

We spent 3 nights in cabin 5 with another couple. Loved having both a deck and a screen porch. Already booked next year! Our first impression was how meaningfully the new owners have paid attention to the little details... they have improved the location's buildings and property substantially compared to the previous owners. (Please ignore any review pre-2014). Ken and... More

Stayed 3 nights at cabin 6. Thoroughly enjoyed rocky beach and campfires each night. Deck overlooks the lake and waves lulled us to sleep. Gas fireplace was just right for comfort in evening. Very clean and excellent kitchen accommodations. Gas grill on deck. Great location to state parks. Looking forward to our next visit .

Beginning my search for North Shore accommodations, it seemed everything fell into one of two categories: very expensive, or very, let's say, rustic. I chose Gooseberry Park Cottages hoping for something in the middle ground of those two, and ended up very impressed! We got more cabin, more seclusion, and more refinement than I expected for much less than I'd... More

We stayed in room 10 of the motel part of this establishment. The current owners just took over a year or so ago and last year they completely remodeled all of the motel units. They are very, very nice with knotty pine paneling. The rooms facing away from the road have a nice deck. The grounds around the complex are... More
