Last year on 11/28/11 my fiancé and I got our usual room at the SPI to watch the ships fight the gals of November on Lake Superior. We decided on very short notice that it would be fun to get married on the lift bridge so we found a pastor who was willing to walk out on the bridge to marry us. She brought her husband as a witness but we needed one more person so the manager of the Inn gladly walked out and witnessed out brief ceremony, (It was cold but not too bad out that day). Later that night after we returned to our room we were greeted by a tray with chocolates, a bottle of wine with classes and even a little toy boat with a note of congratulations. It was so sweet and thoughtful and beyond what they needed to do for us. As for the rooms, (this is upcoming year will be our fourth year in a row at SPI), they are impeccable. Clean, clean, clean with views you can't beat. The whirlpools are big (My husband and I are both over six feet tall and fit in it comfortable together;) and gets as hot as you can handle it. We have never heard any other guests talking or TV. Watching the ships go in and out from the tub with the fire place on and the door cracked is a little slice of heaven!
