I was a bit nervous about staying at an "Inn & Bait Shop". After our 3 night stay, I was ready to settle in for a month. I have never had such a welcome at any motel or hotel: our hostess wanted to make sure we were going to have the best time possible. Free coffee every morning at the Bait Shop (in case your jitters just couldn't wait). The room was bright and very very clean and quiet. The shower was huge. Lots of "literature" to peak interest in sightseeing, etc. I am neither a sportsman nor a fisherman, but was charmed. This--be ware-- is NOT off the beaten path. The inn is just across a busy local highway from Lake Superior. But let me repeat, the rooms were very quiet and well heated/cooled including a lovely ceiling fan. Our party of four shared a much-needed bottle of wine amidst the pumpkins and impatiens arranged just outside our rooms. Ahhhhhh.
