Just did an overnight stay at Thomsonite Beach, our room was very spacious and was equipped with- a coffee maker, microwave oven, and frig. The staff was very accommodating. There was no hair dryer in the room, but I would think they would of had one in the office to use. Beautiful scenery and shoreline to relax by. Will stay... More

We stayed two nights in Unit 8 and LOVED IT. From the comfortable bed and the beautiful view of Lake Superior from our private deck to the hikes recommended by Lee (the owner), everything about Thomsonite Beach Inn was perfect. Thank you!

We only stayed 1 night but wish we had more time. Beautiful green space looking out toward the lake with grills, games, chairs, and picnic tables. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable and staff friendly.

Located at mile marker 103.5 between Lutsen and Grand Marais, visitors to the area are en route to Grand Marais. So they drive on by and say next time we will stop. Sometimes it takes a few trips passing by our property before people stop and check us out, but once they do we often get them for future reservations.... More

I've been coming to Thompsonite for years and can't recommend it enough. Beautiful setting right on the shore, just minutes from Grand Marais. Lee and Scott make you feel welcome and will help make your visit quite memorable. Heaven on earth...

We spent two night in room #4. The best parts of our stay were climbing down to the basalt rocks where the waves were breaking and the evening bonfire where we got tips on hiking trails and things to do from fellow travelers. The room was small but clean and the kitchenette worked fine for making breakfast and lunches. We... More

My family of 6 (2 parents, 4 kids 1 year to 14 years) stayed at Thomsonite from August 19th through August 21st and we will most certainly be back.

We had read the reviews and expected cabins, and an opportunity to relax in peace. Turns out there were not cabins but one small lodge right next to the road. Yes, you were on the lake but far from quiet and secluded. The person who checked us in made us feel as if we were interrupting him and did not... More

As a property owner it is also disappointing when we do not meet our guests expectations when they stay with us. We apologize that your one night lodging with us fell short of your expectations.

We were very pleased with our stay here. The owners, Scott & Lee Bergstrum, were very helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome. Our room was quite large and had been recently updated.
