“Perfect time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2010

We spent four days at Larsmont Cottages. Everything was just perfect. We booked a "lake view" 1 bedroom and ended up in a lakeside unit. We had massages in the cottage, best massage I've had in years. We took advantage of the specials through their website, WATCH FOR DEALS and stay midweek if you can.

Everything is just as nice as the photos show. The staff was very accommodating but totally gave us our space. The amenities were nice, we checked out a movie, checked out a tandem bike, and took advantage of some of the other things like free wifi.

This place is awesome. I just wish I had another special occasion coming up so I have another excuse to splurge again! Larsmont is truly worth it!!!

This is my 2nd time staying here and again it was very relaxing. It's not far off the highway, but seems as though you are deep in the woods. It's quiet except for the continuous sounds of Lake Superior. It's great to open your window and sleep hearing the constant motions of the lake. I would have loved to build a campfire, but couldn't due to MN DNR not allowing anyone to due to dry conditions. They have a huge community hot tub but you are always by yourselves.The rooms are nice and modern with a king bed, gas fireplace that flicks on with a press of a button. The bathroom is wonderful. It has a huge stand-in shower and a jacuzzi whirlpool. The whirlpool barely fits 2 people but does the trick. His and her sinks as well. The room supplied a small fridge, microwave, toaster, and a few plates and silverware, if needed. I loved the style of the rooms and is a nice place to stay.

Started off well but after our room keys repeatedly stopped working we thought we'd talk to the manager and we were completely blown off by the manager. She had other things to do and if we didn't like it here we didn't have to come back. And we don't plan too. The front desk person did tell us later that they cancelled our keys for our safety because they were having carpet contractors look at the room and they forgot it was rented.

Larsmont Cottages are truly amazing! I went expecting very little and ended up falling head over heels for this place! We were in a two bedroom lake view cottage. I was amazed at what the "cottage" was - basically its an upscale condo! The large kitchen loaded with supplies, the spacious living room with fireplace the two bedrooms both with full bathrooms (the only issue was one of the rooms had a pull up day bed which we later found out is the only unit to have this - not good for a couple!).

Dex at the front desk was great and you can see he really enjoys his job and is excellent interacting with the guests! He was also our server the next evening and is very knowledgable about the menu. The only issue we had at dinner was the Carrot Cake was awful - the wine made up for this though!!

The grounds are beautiful, the lake amazing and we will most definetely be back!

Larsmont Cottages exceeded our expectations of a Lake Superior vacation. We took our two small kids (5+7) "up nort" for a spring break vacation. The pool facility was great and the outdoor whirlpool was fantastic. I only wish the outdoor whirlpool was open past 9 pm. Free wireless internet throughout the property meant I could track my March Madness picks during our stay. We stayed in 230/231/232, which is a 3 bedroom cottage about 30 feet from the rocky shore of Lake Superior. The gas grill on our patio was awesome and there was always a nightly bonfire right next to the shoreline. Larsmont is in a great location. It's about a 20 minute drive to Duluth, Two Harbors and Gooseberry Falls. VERY comfortable cottages. Perfect for morning coffee and reading while listening to the waves crash against the shoreline.

My boyfriend and I just got back from our vacation at Larsmont Cottages today. Our original spring break plans fell through, so last-minute we chose to drive (only about 20 miles) from Duluth to Larsmont. We stayed in a suite (in an end cabin); it had a king-sized bed, warm fireplace, kitchenette, and HUGE bathroom with double sinks, jacuzzi tub, and massive shower. But the best part about our room is that it was the closest to the lake. We left the door open the whole time, and listening to the waves at night was awesome. We had a great time walking along the shore, going to the sauna, and goofing around in the pool for a little. One day we drove up to Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock. In the middle of March, we somehow got lucky enough for mid-60 degree weather! At night we went out and when we got back, made our own fire in the fire pit right outside of our cabin. It was perfect. Larsmont is so different from any other resort, because you feel like you have your own place. No paper-thin walls to hear your neighbors through, no kids running through the hallways. Just a perfect room in a great secluded area. We couldn't have asked for more, even considering that our expectations weren't the highest; after living on a lake my whole life and going to college in Duluth, 20 miles away couldn't be so different...but we were SO wrong. If you are considering staying in this area, stay at Larsmont. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed. Truly great.

We stayed in the Cottage Suite from Sunday, Feb. 14 through Wed. The suite was perfect. There was a view of the lake, an easyto-use gas fireplace, a balcony, a HUGE bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and a shower that four people could have been in at once. The king-size bed was especially comfortable. And with the few kitchen supplies, microwave and refrigerator, we were able to bring our own breakfast and lunch supplies (and a couple bottles of wine) to save some money for some amazing dinners.

The owners and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We checked out snowshoes and went snowshoeing on the Superior Trail just north of Two Harbors. We loved Dexter, our server one night and bartender another. The outdoor hot tub and sauna were unique and very relaxing.

The food at the Ledge Rock is VERY good...fresh, interesting, etc. And their wine list was extensive.

A couple of close-by suggestions - The New Scenic Cafe about 30 minutes south is truly the BEST restaurant in Minnesota. Wow! We also enjoyed conversation and treats with the owner of Mocha Moose, just up the way from the Cottages.

I know they bill themselves as a family resort, so if you aren't a kid-person, you may want to be sure to go up during the week when they are in school.

We plan to make this an annual Valentines Weekend trip! Thanks to all at Larsmont Cottages for a much needed relaxing weekend away from the cities.
