My family was in Duluth for UMD Family Weekend and decided to stay at Lake Breeze because it had a fabulous lakeview, a large cottage (really a house) for family to gather, and fairly inexpensive motel rooms. It's about 10 miles from Duluth. It was a great jumping off point for heading up the shore to Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls State Park.
The accommodations were very nice.
A couple of us stayed in the single motel rooms and they are typical, old style motel rooms. A bit small, but very nice - the bathrooms and carpeting were super clean. I felt safe walking around in barefeet. The rooms have a small refrigerator, a microwave and TV with limited channels, two nightstands and two side chairs. The beds are a bit on the firm side, but comfortable. Linens and beadspread were extremely clean. The rooms have individual decks with a couple of chairs.
The cabin/house was awesome! A great place for our family to gather. It has three bedrooms - two with one double/queen bed and one with 2-twins. Two bathrooms. Full kitchen and dining room. A great living area on the front side facing the lake with a fire place (they provide the wood)! There are a few foutons/hide-a-beds around for extra people and there is a "library" off the living room with a fouton that could work for a 4th bedroom. There is a huge deck off the front with lots of chairs. This cabin also has it's own private campfire ring next to it. Note: Some that slept in the cabin said the highway was noisy.
The office has a cute little gift shop and also sells ice for a buck!
There was a little mix up in our reservation, but that was mostly our fault as we changed it a few times. It all worked out in the end. We had a good experience with the owners.
There is a bench across the road on the lakeshore and a rough path down to the lake.
Our family plans on going back to Lake Breeze every fall while the kids attend UMD.
One strange thing.... I was walking back to my room one morning and saw two women leaving the room. I assumed that they were the housekeepers but when I entered my room there was a strong smell of cigarette smoke and nothing was cleaned - the rooms are non-smoking. When I returned later in the day my trash was emptied, but the bed was not made, which would have been nice.
