This is a really sweet b&b. The owners are great! Fresh baked scones and coffee in the morning were warm and lovely. There's great rock climbing nearby if that's what you're looking for. One of the nights we stayed there we wandered out back behind the b&b and lit a fire and there were fireflies all over the place and it was really magical. I definitely recommend it.

This is a cozy little B&B and a great place to stay on the North Shore. The location is great with several state parks very close by and just a short drive to a nearby small towns with restaurants, etc. The hosts were fantastic--very friendly, knowledgeable about the local area (gave great recommendations for everything from restaurants to hiking trails), and generally just friendly folks. I stayed in Room 1, which was the smallest room but perfect for a solo traveler. No TVs in the rooms but free wifi. As other reviewers have noted, there are also adjustable beds, complimentary coffee and scones (a small coffee shop is downstairs), a private deck, and a trail leading down to a bench overlooking the lake. Spirit of Gitche Gumee is highly recommended!

Gitche Gumee was a very lovely place to spend a couple of nights. The lakeview room featured not only a lake view but deer sightings too. The view of the lake and the privacy and quiet of the property were perfect for relaxing...and the scones and coffee were first class!

This is a great B & B if you are looking for a clean comfortable place to crash at a reasonable price. I believe there are 4 rooms at this place. We stayed in room 4 which had a queen size select confort bed and the windows overlooked the lake. We got to wake up to the sunrise over Lake Superior which was great. When we go to North Shore we look for a place that is cheap, but not trashy or dirty (not for the pool and AC). Good location as it is half way up North Shore. There are no TVs if that is your thing. When we get done exploring the Northwoods we are ready to crash and like to stay away from media outlets, so it was perfect for us. We did bring a laptop and watch a DVD one night. They do have a fire ring you can use, along with a deck out back and a trail that leads down to the lake with a bench next to it. We were worried we may hear others, but didn't hear a thing all night (kids under 12 not allowed). You have your own private bathroom with a nice shower. They have fans in each room also, nature's airconditing is great. :-) A nightcap of Sherry awaits you and clean comfortable beds. People are friendly and you get fresh scones in the morning and your choice of coffee/espresso drinks. They also keep coffee, tea, and left over scones for guests. They let you use their ice and make you feel at home. I really liked this place and recommend it.
