I almost didn't stay because of some other reviews, but I am glad I decided to. The reviewers who were complaining about the "god talk", just ignore them. I saw little evidence of what they were talking about and what I did see was nothing to get bothered about.
The location is excellent. Lake Superior is literally right across the street and there are lots of rocks for you to sit on and enjoy the lake. There are many hiking trails that start right behind or next to the lodge - short and long trails.
I stayed in the lodge itself. Is this place new? Not at all. Is it run down? Again, no, just well-worn, maybe, but very clean. My bed was comfy, the bathroom was "new" (although tiny), I had a fridge, space, thick towels and the shower head was high enough up for a very tall person. They do have a computer to use in the lobby, but I had a hard time connecting to the wireless network with my laptop. But then again, I wasn't there for electronic connections. My room had a view of the lake, which was awesome, but, just so you know, you are also facing the street, which is really a highway and fairly busy.
Would I stay there again? Absolutely!
