We didn't stay here as we had reservations in Thunder Bay but was told by a fellow traveler in a restaurant we ate at to stop and take a look. It was a charming, interesting, hotel. Beautiful view of Lake Superior. No phones or tv's in the rooms but this was part of the charm - stepping back in time to enjoy the peace and quiet. The dining room ceiling is hand painted in Indian motif. The have the largest natural stone fireplace in Minnesota in their dining room. We didn't eat here but heard the food is wonderful.
