We stayed here as part of a ski package through Lutsen. The owners are super nice, and very accommodating. We decided (last minute) to change our dates, and they were more than happy to oblige. The view of Lake Superior is fantastic, and I could see this being an above average spot in the summer. However, the room was nothing... More

It reminded me of places I would stay at with my parents in the '50s. It was reasonably clean and rather spartan. It has a beautiful beach--but beware Cape Coders, most of Lake Superior's beaches are rocky, not sandy. The lodge is about 5 minutes drive from Grand Marias.

We have stayed at Thomsonite 7 of the last 9 years to enjoy fall on the North Shore. If you are looking for a luxury experience, this is not it. This place has a homegrown feel, welcoming and informative hosts, a beautiful location, and a relaxing atmosphere. It is the perfect place for us. We have been here as a... More

We stayed here for one night in August. It was a spur of the moment trip, so we had limited selection of rooms, but had no complaints about the room we got - unit #6. For the same price as a regular motel room in town, we had a small suite, with kitchen, living area and 2 beds. It was... More

We really liked the Thomsonite Beach Inn and Suites. We stayed in their most economical room and it was a great value for July 4th weekend. They have 3 fire pits and lots of free fire wood to use. One pit was literally on the rocks just above the water. We loved sitting in front of the fire, watching the... More

We stayed at Thomsonite Beach Inn & Suite for a 3 night getaway from the kids in August 2010. Our stay was wonderful, relaxing and just what we needed. The shore was amazing! I loved hearing the waves crash on the shore as I was laying down to go to sleep. The room was neat and clean. We had our... More

My husband and I stayed here during our Lake Superior Circle Tour by motorcycle. We did not know anything about the area and picked Thomsonite Beach Inn based on reviews. What a nice place! They have a great location on Lake Superior with a warm and welcoming facility. The room was comfortable and attractive. The bathroom could use a little... More

We have stayed at Thomsonite Beach Inn several times over the last 9 years. It is the the favorite spot of our family to stay on Lake Superior! We and our children have enjoyed every stay. We enjoy the secluded Thomsite rocky area where the kids and we can climb on the rocks or just sit and watch / listen... More

Thomsonite Beach is truly the perfect spot from which to enjoy everything the Grand Marais area has to offer. It is close enough to Grand Marais to enjoy shopping, food, and entertainment on a whim. It is also near Cascade State Park and Grand Portage, both of which offer great day trips. The hosts are knowledgable and helpful, able to... More

Although this place was right off of Highway 61, you would not know it. The resort is directly on Lake Superior and does not have alot of lodging units. I picked this because my elderly parents wanted to go to the North Shore 'one more time' and you could walk straight out of your unit and walk to the area... More
