We have been coming to the North Shore for 20 years. This cozy little Inn is just what we need as a getaway from our hectic lives. Butch and Julie are the ultimate hosts. Our rooms are always very clean and well stocked. We appreciate the kitchen but also know many fine restaurants in the area. It just doesn't get... More

Great place to come to get away . We have stayed here many times each time in a different room and all the rooms are welcoming and relaxing. There breakfast is to die for and it's cool how they always put a message in the pancakes

We have stayed at the Inn on Gitchee Gumee twice. Each unique suite or cabin is decorated with rustic Lake Superior themes, many items hand-hewn by the owners. Throughout the summer, the grounds are an explosion of color with floral gardens, shrubs, water features, and hummingbirds. The firepit blazes at night where guests can visit or just gaze across the... More

If you really want to experience what is so famous about the North Shore of Lake Superior, this has it all. First, the site is removed enough from the Lake that you won't get battered in a storm, but close enough that the shimmering chi of its water bathe you in all seasons. Second, the decor is personal, north woodsy... More

Unfortunately I failed to search prior reviews before arriving at the inn. When we arrived and entered the 3 Bears Cottage I was sorely disappointed to find the pictures posted on their site did not accurately reflect the well-worn condition of the accommodations. The king size bed was very uncomfortable and the queen room's decor was a bit creepy. Our... More

We had a fantastic time at the Inn on Gitche Gumee! We stayed in the Hideout cabin, which was clean, had a comfy bed, and a whirlpool tub. Each morning we'd drink our coffee on the deck overlooking the lake (across the road) and the beautiful grounds. One night they even set us up for a bon fire. An added... More
