“Will never stay here again!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

These cabins do not have air conditioning! It was 95 degrees outside and we stayed for three days and needless to say, we slept poorly the two nights we were there. It's every man for himself as far as grilling and getting a picnic table to use, then someone takes the two chairs from our deck besides... it was a miserable stay to say the least. By the way, no TV reception either so bring video tapes.

Room Tip: Just be sure to check that the temperature in Duluth or you will be miserable.

My husband and I drove up to the North Shore this last weekend and just needed a place to crash. We rented room number 3. It was cute and cozy. It has a fridge and micro, very nice. The bed room bed was awful, we rooled into each other and sunk in the middle. We moved out to the bed that was what looked like a one time living room and were much more confortable. The room is small, but worked great. The biggest issue we had was the neighbors who must live in number 4. They were disgustingly loud until well after two am. I am not sure what exactly they were doing over there, but it sounded like construction. We could hear every word and every foot step they took. They slammed the front door alot. Maybe, they just didnt dig having neighbors. Another issue we had was the water temp in the shower, if someone else runs water or flushes a toliet, you get scortched. Becareful! The room was as clean as an old hotel can get. It needs some updating, but for the price, you cant complain too much about how outdated it is. The lady who checked us in was great, very friendly! I checked every square inch of the beds, bedding, box springs and frames and am very happy to say there were NO bed bugs. I am in the industry, so I know. Thank you for the room, hope you all have a great spring!!!

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.

It was nice to get away one last time before the kids went back to school. We stay at Lake Breeze Resort. It was nice to know that the owners have quiet time for families. We have stayed at other resorts, but were not happy because people would be up late and keep our children up with the noise. It was enjoyable to sit out at night and watch the ships go by, my husband and I felt it was cozy and peaceful there. We will definately be back. Thanks for making this a family established environment. You don't find that offend anymore.

Owner is a JERK ! We booked 99% of the resort for a weekend w several families - he Yelled at the kids for running around 'being kids' came to our bon fire and flipped out on us adults for talking and playing music. when we asked who we were disturbing he couldn't answer and told us that he needed his sleep. Excuse me who's the customer ??? Great location, but, we and several other families WILL NEVER COME BACK !!! Wow nice customer service !!

Lake Breeze is located on the "scenic route" on the Northern outskirts of Duluth. We like it so well we've come back now several summers in a row. There is so much to do without leaving the resort: mini-golf, swimming, and a playground right outside our cabin door. No extra charge for any of these amenities. A variety of sports equipment is available for free checkout as well: volleyball, badminton, soccer. For rainy days a variety of games and puzzles can be checked out and for a small fee videos/DVDs if needed. Our children enjoy the lodge with its "play school/blackboard" set up and foosball. We've stayed in the smaller one bedroom units (#12 & 15) and a larger unit (#7). Both offer clean, comfortable living quarters with refrigerators, microwaves, and stoves. As our children have gotten older we've found the larger unit better meets our needs. If you like to cook outside a grill is offered, with charcoal and lighter fluid provided and a picnic table as well. No need to bring wood for the campfire as this is provided as well. Cross the road and hike down by Lake Superior or just watch from your deck as the big ships make their way into Duluth harbor. We found Lake Breeze to be a relaxing place to hang out with family. Paula and Ken, the owners, have become like extended family to us. Great service, great resort. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Rooms 9-15 offer the best views. Of the bigger units 6 & 10 offer a more open area floor plan wi...

I have been staying at Lake Breeze for the past 5 years. The resort is in a great location, the room i stayed in was room 15 great view of the lake which you can see the ships that are coming into port. I had seen another post on here that was not very good, I did not have the same experience they did. I have had them ask me to move to a different room before and had a no problems with it.
