We stayed in the Burlington Bay penthouse Thursday through Saturday nights in order to visit the Split Rock lighthouse memorial of the Edmund Fitzgerald on November 11. Cold, windy and rainy the whole trip, but with this hotel, we did not have much reason to leave the rooms. We had a family of 4 from the Minneapolis area and a family of 2 from Michigan, and we stayed in the 3 bedroom penthouse very comfortably. The living room was large, with a gas fireplace and a balcony overlooking Lake Superior. A full kitchen with dishes and a dishwasher made meals easy. Coffee tables and a dining room table were good for playing board games we brought as well as for eating on. The living room also had a flat screen television and a DVD player. The bedroom attached to the living room is large, with a king bed and also with a fireplace and a two person whirlpool tub and nice double doors into the living room.
Another large bedroom had a fireplace, king bed and another two person whirlpool tub, and the third bedroom was good for the two kids, with a queen bed, but no fireplace or tub so we didn't have to worry about them. All three bedrooms had separate baths with showers, as well as flat screen televisions and DVD players.
A vestibule connected all of the rooms, with the vestibule and each of the three rooms each having keyed entries. We tended to just leave all of the interior doors open except for overnight.
We used the indoor/outdoor hot tub each evening, the outdoor part was normally only open Friday and Saturday nights, but unfortunately was closed Saturday night due to high winds, which apparently caused power outages in the other parts of the resort. The indoor pool was nice for the boys to play in.
Everything was very clean and quiet, and we had an issue with a burned out light bulb that was replaced very quickly. Housekeeping was very nice, on Saturday we did not leave the room until about 1:30, and although they first came to clean the room about 9:30, they were extremely gracious when we asked them to come back in the afternoon.
A word of warning, if you want to order a pizza on Thursday night in the off-season like we did, you had better do it early. We tried to order from every pizza place in the phone book - including Pizza Hut and found them all closed. We ended up going to the grocery store and buying frozen and cooking it in the oven back at the room, but most of Two Harbors closes around 8:00.
I will definitely stay here again the next time we visit. The value was great, especially when shared between families.
