According to the locals, his little resort is under renovation. Our stay in tiny (approx 12 x 14) Cabin 14 was as we expected. Cabin was tiny, warm and clean. We stayed with our dogs and enjoyed it. We could have selected a more expensive place to stay, but this suited us just fine. near the lake, near Duluth, nice for the dogs and warm during the cold evening and night. Tiny and dated- yes. Convenient and clean- yes. Not overpriced for the region. Yes, renovation will help, but it was as advertised- a small family resort with the flavor of the early development of Highway 61.
