Decided it was time to try a post hoilday venture to the North Shore after the holidays. One problem, It's a long New Years weekend and who do you have dog sit. Problem resolved, bring the Mut with. Superior Shores has a number of rooms that are designated pet friendly and we were not alone in deciding maybe Fido would enjoy a winter breal with a little hiking, and sightseeing.
Its not easy traveling with a dog, since you really don't want to disturb neighbors and you don't get to go up and dine in the lodge facilities since you can't leave the dog alone. We also learned that booking early would have really been an advantage. When we finally decided to take on this adventure all the pet freindly one bedroom suites were taken. I would really advise that you book a suite so you have a kitchen, plenty of sitting area, and a private bedroom. We toured one of these before departing and for the $50 a night it would have cost, all that extra room and a kitchen was well worth it. We had a lodge room, lake view a must. But the fireplace an Jacuzzi room with a pet is really impracticle. In fact I wonder even when traveling as a couple why a Jacuzzi in the middle of a master bedroom is a plus. They take forever to fill, they usually are not that clean and the humidity soars in the closed space. But when you book late you take what you can get. The shoreline at this facility is a short walk down a nicely maintained trail, and even on a winter day with the snow reaching to the lakeshore and the waves coming in , it is a wonderful beach walk. Wec took drives up the shore as far as Tofte with stops for lunch and pictures. Then south the next day for some Duluth visits. Don't miss a side trip to the new, Castle Danger Brewery. They are open in early evening and sell growlers. Fun stop, scenic and it would be fun to stay in one of their cabins at the Castle Haven Cabins. The beer is brewed in a newly designed brewry adjacent to the cabins, but they atre outgrowing that fast.
All in all it was a nice break and a good chance to see how the dau would travel. We'll do it again, but next time in a lodge one bedroom suite or bigger.
