“Great Location but Dissapointing Room”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

First the good news. This condo motel is right on the lake with wonderful views; a great deck; a reasonable price for a summer weekend; and close to many parks and attractions.

The bad news is that the place is showing it's age. The rooms need makeovers -- ours was #14 and had a worn out couch, chair, and carpet. Since there is no air conditioning, we needed to keep the window and patio door open which on the ground floor created privacy and safety issues. We probably would choose another place the next time.

Another great vacation on the north shore. Second visit to this resort, found the staff to be friendly and helpful, having knowledge of the north shore. Spent time by the lake, the stairs are easy to manuever. The view from the deck was wonderful. Stayed in a condo with loft and had plenty of room. Used the kitchen everyday for meals and found it to be sufficient. Not enough room for 6 people to eat comfortably, but we were on vacation so we relaxed and found places to sit. Great common deck with chairs, some of us put together a puzzle in the large common area. Used the pool and hot tub and enjoyed this, also took a dip in the big lake. Used the fireplace in the room because the weather was very cool. Viewed fireworks in Grand Marais on the 4th, what a great show over the lake. Bedding was comfortable. Resort is close to Tofter to pick up supplies and eat out if necessary. Also close to Lutsen for the same ammenities. I can't think of a better starting point for a true North Shore vacation. Thanks Chateau LeVeaux.

We have stayed here several times over the years in both the condos and lakeview suites. Chateau LeVeaux is a family favorite and we will definitely be back! That being said, I wanted to mention a couple of issues my two daughters and I had this past visit. We stayed in one of the lakeview suites this past long MEA weekend and twice had our electricity go out due to old circuitry. We followed all available instructions to turn off unneeded appliances when operating the microwave and the circuit blew anyway. We also had issues with the plumbing in our room that we were able to deal with ourselves, however we feel that Chateau LeVeaux really does need to upgrade both the electrical and plumbing in their lakeview suites as these isssues should not be issues at all. I had the same room last year and had mentioned a couple of exposed screws in the bathroom/shower area upon check out and when we arrived this year the same screws were exposed and posed a hazzard for being poked or scratched with them. One other area that Chateau LeVeaux needs to come up to date with is the issue of being green...they do not have bins to recycle glass, plastic or paper/cardboard and have not had since I have been staying there.

We truly enjoy our visits and the quiet peaceful location and amazingly friendly and helpful staff. However, when I am paying for a place to stay and relax, I expect to do that and not have to deal with the day to day inconveniences.

Room Tip: If you want a bit more room and a real wood burning fireplace choose one of the condos. If you want...

We stayed with another couple for 5 nights the week before Labor Day. Every night I was lulled to sleep by the sound of the lake, and woke to the same. I was blessed to wake early enough one morning to see an amazing peach-y sunrise and watched it before I got up. There is a full, clean kitchen and all the furniture is comfortable. Our friends thought the unit was a little small, but we were happy with it. Balcony was spacious with an amazing view. There are several firepits placed out along the edge of the property, which we used one night and made s'mores while we watched the full blue moon reflect on the lake.

Room Tip: We were in Condo 21, which has a queen bedroom and full bath on both floors. It is a pet-free room...

An incredible view. I was looking for a place where I could sit and read with a great view, and this definitely fit the bill. I stayed in a Lake View Suite (no kitchen, but a mini-fridge) and spent 4 days/nights in late August. The room was well decorated and comfortable. Nice TV. It was incredibly relaxing, which is what I was looking for.

I did have have a back ache while there - which I think was due to the bed. That is my only complaint.

Room Tip: The Lake View Suites are not condos - just a decent size room with a great view.

We stayed in a condo at Chateau LeVeaux for two nights in mid-August. It was in a great location, close to many State Parks where we hiked and viewed some spectacular waterfalls and rivers . The condo was clean and adequate, with a 70's vibe. We had a two bedroom unit with a large balcony that overlooked the lake. We cooked breakfasts and dinners in the condo, which helped keep expenses down. The grounds were nicely kept and there were several fire pits for use. The pool and hot tub were a welcome relief after a full day of hiking. We had a wonderful time exploring the area...

We stayed in August 2012 for two nights in Great Lakes Condo # 3. All the comforts of home with the full kitchen, cooking utensils, etc. We spend most of our time just sitting on the patio watching the Big Lake....It was a bit warm up there that weekend and our unit did not have air (some units do), but the fans helped. The only problem were the flies, they were everwhere but this is not the problem of the resort. Just a way of life sometimes. Even tho the property was apparently full, it was really quiet. Everyone seems to respect the quiet times. There are many fire pits if you want to tip a few watching logs burn. There is a grocery store less than two miles away in Tofte. It really has everything needed if you want to cook rather than driving 25 miles to Grand Marais or pay the cost of dinner at Bluefin Bay (spendy), for the property also has otrdoor grills. We would return if the opportunity arises !
