“Wonderful relaxing time at Bob's”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

We rented a small cabin here last summer. We had a view of Lake Superior and our own space on the lakeshore. They had free wood available for campfires on the rocky shore of the lake. That was our favorite part! Seagulls came by each day. My daughter enjoyed feeding them. There is so much to do in the area since it is near several state parks. There is a great grocery store not far away, so it is very easy to get groceries and cook meals in the little cabin kitchen. (Or you can go out, if that is what you prefer). Bob's also provides a grill. The cabin itself was clean and rustic. We loved it there! Make sure you get up early one morning to see the sunrise. Spectacular!

I can't say enough about Bob's cabins, we enjoy long quiet weekends here at least three times a season. The views are great, and unbeatable. The cabins are simple but very comfortable, the library is full of great books to read, we enjoy being able to "unplug" from everything and hear nothing but the crashing sounds of the waves.

We took our pre-teens with us on one of our stays and I thought they were gonna lose it when they found out they did not have t.v. or phones, but they still talk about the fires we had on the beaches and love to go back to Bob's.

I write this looking out of the window of our cabin at beautiful Lake Superior and listening to the awesome sound of waves crashing on the rocks. The sunrise this morning which greeted us was spectacular. The place is a welcome step into the past. Quiet, no parties next door, just the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep. Simple, clean, no frills except Wifi! Fires are allowed on the beach and you are an easy drive to all of the north shore. This will become an annual event for us. Treat yourself to a long weekend here.

We were a group of four friends (women) who stayed cosily in one of the cabins for a long weekend. The views of the sunrise over Lake Superior from the cabins themselves are worth the trip alone. Cabins are comfortable and clean. There are no tvs, no internet, and the kitchen is for only mild preparation of food as there is no oven. But there are firepits for every cabin, lots of beautiful scenery, adirondack chairs and little porches for reading and firepits with readily available and cheap wood. Just a completely relaxed rustic resort. Two Harbors is just up the road for groceries and shopping. Kayaking is easy right from the rocky beach below the cottages. A great bargain especially if sharing with non-relateds. Highly recommend, but bring warm clothes. It's chilly on that side of the lake even in August.

I've been staying at Bob's for years. Though I've tried other places on the North Shore, this is the one to which I always return. This is a quiet retreat; the owner makes clear that after 9:30 p.m. "only the waves are free to roar." If you want a place that is free of televisions, telephones, and microwaves, and which is far enough off the road that you don't see the road, you will appreciate Bob's. I feel quite safe staying there alone. When I get tired of solitude, it's easy enough to find good conversation with other guests. It's just 4 miles into Two Harbors for a meal or for shopping; a little farther to the State Parks for hiking. The owner works hard to make sure that everyone is comfortable.

What we were looking for was exactly what we found at Bob's Cabins on Lake Superior. The cabins are simplistic but have the quiet and peacefulness that you can't find anywhere else! At night the only light is the light of the moon. There are no frills here, just the majesty of the great outdoors along with the awesome lakeshore right outside your window. If you need a quiet place without telephones, tv, fireplaces, ice machines, this is it! We read, wrote, ate, walked, and sat in awe of the lake. The shoreline is a bit rocky but there are benches at the bottom of each set of steps scattered along the property. The cabin was spotlessless clean.... with adequate kitchenware to make due for some simple cooking. The "office" provided a library and there were games for all ages available too. This is the place to get away from the city. We'll definitely be going back!

  • Liked — totally quiet!
  • Disliked — we wanted to stay longer but had to get home for work/school

We just got back from four nights at Bob's Cabins and had a wonderful time. We booked our stay after reading reviews on here, so we had a good idea of what to expect. The cabin was fantastic, with everything we needed and nothing more-we really appreciated the simplicity. The view from our cabin was beautiful. It was the perfect place to sit and read on the porch, build a campfire and drink coffee and tea. The cabin was clean and the staff friendly. We can't wait to go back.
