“Got way more than expected!”
Reviewed July 27, 2009

I traveled to Beacon Pointe with a group of 10 girlfriends and it was one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. It was way nmor ethan I had expected.
We stayed in a three-bedroom suite (presedential suit, I think). The building and furnishings were new and everything was in working condition. There were three bathrooms and two jaccuzzi tubs. We had two balconies and a second-level patio. There was more than enough sleeping accomodations because all of the couches were fold outs.
The resort was right on Lake Superior and was located right on the walking path to downtown Duluth. It would be a bout a 5 mile walk (which we took) to the lift bridge. They offered lots of outings/sports, like kayaking and biking, although we never used these services (too busy shopping and going out downtown).
The staff was friendly and attentive. We had a problem with our locks and someone was up in five minutes and took cae of it. We got extra blankets and pillows with no fuss/ In the mornings, we ate at the continential breakfast, which was not only good, but full stocked. The pool area was large and clean.
I use Trip Advisor often for reviews and I know that will all of the good, you are bound to get some bad, but I can't see how anyone would say this resort was bad. I will definitely be visiting Beacon Pointe again. I have pretty high standards and I definitely got more than I expected.

Fabulous, relaxing, clean pet friendly resort. I'm picky about hotels, and pet friendly ones are sometimes suspect, but this was the big ticket. We have a westie who loves to travel, and all 3 of us loved this place. Fantastic breakfast and perfectly located on the lake walk. Will return for sure!

This is a beautiful new resort right on Lake Superior, and relatively close to everything in Duluth... but not walking distance to anything except the lake walk and the lake.
We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. It had a jacuzzi (which my mom loved), a king sized bed (which I loved), and a pull out couch (Which my mom slept on and was brutally uncomfortable). The view was amazing! There were 2 big flat screen TVs with lots of channels, as well as a small mini fridge, a wet bar, and microwave. The bathroom had a hairdryer in it, which was nice.
The cleanliness of the room wasn't quite up to par, considering what we were paying. There was dust everywhere, and the daily maid service meant making the bed, emptying the garbage, and giving us some clean towels- they didn't even collect the dirty towels that we threw in the bottom of the shower as indicated!
There is a small indoor pool, hottub, and sauna, but the hottub was out of order when we were there, with no explanation.
The continental breakfast was AMAZING! Fresh fruit, yogurt, juice, bagels, Starbucks coffee- everything I could want in a free breakfast!
There are sea kayaks and bikes available to use for free, but when we asked to use a bike (on a beautifully warm Easter weekend) the front desk girl told us that we couldn't use them because they haven't had their "yearly safety check" (whatever that means!) so that was disappointing. If you are a runner, walker or stroller you will love the Lake Walk right at your doorstep.
I enjoyed my stay but was disappointed in a few areas.

This was our first stay here. It's a newer hotel. Very luxurious rooms & beautiful views of Lake Superior. The room layouts were unique, spacious & very comfortable. They have many newer modern amenities in the rooms. The shower is adjustable and has options, very nice wetbar. The whirlpool is nice. A nice lil patio/deck area. Crisp new flat screen TVs. The owner is friendly and helpful. Close proximity to Fittgers. Reasonable rates.

  • Liked — How new it was and comfortable rooms.
  • Disliked — The front desk didn't deliver an item when they said they would.

we stayed at Beacon Pointe for 3 nights in September. It was dissappointing to say the least. the kitchen has no fan so the fire alarm is easily triggered, and the bathroom has little if no fan -where I live this would not be up to code.

the bathroom Jacuzzi turns on without provocation and the staff say - oh that happens sometimes. we had Prepaid for 3 nights but after the second day we got a phone call from the front desk saying " checkout was at 11:00 am" It might have been nice to have asked us if we were staying another night (as we had already been billed for it and the place was almost empty)

We often travel the North shore and will not stay here again.

due to the cheap furnishings and the poor planning (door of the fridge bangs into the drywall every time it opens), this will be a disaster in a year.

  • Liked — the view is spectacular
  • Disliked — poor quality accomodations and rude service

We stayed at Beacon Pionte for a week in August and had a wonderful time. We stayed in a one bedroom penthouse condo on the 3rd floor. The room was beautiful with a king bed, leather sofa, fireplace and a full kitchen. We had a nice large deck with a wonderfull view of Lake Superior and the lift Bridge. The staff was plesent and very helpful. The pool is rather small, but the resort is not large. The resort is right on the lake and has a path down to the rocky shoreline. One item I will mention is that it is a new resort and they do not have all their programs runnung yet. For example, smores are only on weekends and the kids club is not running yet. But in general, we loved staying here with our 6 year old.

Fantastic Property! Great People! Stunning Views! Beautiful Rooms! WOW. We stayed here for Grandma's Marathon and everything was fantastic. We will be back. The property is right on the Lake-we could throw a rock from our deck into the water! The views were breathtaking. We were about 2 miles from Canal Park, it was a hike but the Lake Walk path was beautiful and easy. Easy walk/drive to downtown. Great Romantic Place. Don't pass it up.
