We stayed at the Cove Point Lodge the nights of October 5th and 6th. We chose the hotel due to its location and availability late in the season. We spent a total of $624 for the two nights for a king room on the second floor with a small whirlpool in it. The room just isn't worth that kind of money.
The bathroom was cheaply decorated (it looked like mid-range stuff you could get at Home Depot, not what you'd expect to see in a luxury or even a nice hotel room), the walls were a bit thin, and the water pressure was a joke. Every time another guest stopped or started their shower, flushed their toilet, etc., the pipes would shudder and the water pressure and temperature would change. There was also no hot breakfast offered. I'm sorry, but for over $200 a night (let alone $300 during peak season), one expects a high-quality hot breakfast, not a quaint traditional Norwegian continental-style breakfast.
I stay at numerous hotels around the world (I'm gold status with one chain and silver with two others this year) so I feel like I know what I am talking about. Comparing this hotel to the $200 per night hotels I spent time in on Grand Cayman and Barbados recently, this one looks like the Motel 6. It is a nice place really, it's just not worth the peak season rate. If you can pay $150 or less for the king room, book it. Otherwise, go elsewhere.
All of the rooms have a view of Lake Superior.
