We are frequent guests to Surfside on Superior which is the sister property to Temperance Landing. However, this time, we were 8 people: Three couples and two young boys. So, for this spring weekend, we stayed in Temperlance Landing Unit #22 and this unit was perfect for all of us. There are three bedrooms (2 Kings / 1 Queen). Each bedroom is on it's own level and there is a full bathroom on each level. The two boys made good use of the family room on the lower walk-out level. They had their own space (pull-out couch) and own TV to play their games and watch their movies. The kitchen on the Main Level is equipped very nicely with plenty of glassware and dishes. The 8 of us were very comfortable in this spacious home and we will definitely return again.
During our stay, we drove up to Surfside to use the pool, hot tub, sauna and exercise room. The facilities there are nice and worth the short drive up the road. There is a Finnish Sauna on the Temperance Landing site that is just outside of Unit #22. But during our stay, it was closed for maintenance. We hope that is fixed when we return again.
For those who want to make use of the full kitchen, there is a very good and complete grocery store up the road in Tofte (across from CoHo Cafe). The unit also has it's own grill on the back deck if you want to grill.
You are right next to Temperance State Park where there are lovely hiking trails for everyone. Our favorite hike is about 10 miles south of Temperance Landing at mile marker 70 on Highway 61. It's a hike that follows the Caribou River inland to Caribou Falls. There's a small indescript lot right off of Highway 61 alongside Caribou river. The hiking trail is only about a half-mile in. You reach a staircase that is worth the descent. It takes you right to the bottom of Caribou Falls. There is also a nice platform built at the top of the falls that gives you a spectaculor view of Lake Superior.
We will definitely return!
