Magnificent Lake Superior View

Posted Aug 18, 2017
Pros: Sitting on the cliffs above Lake Superior provided a gorgeous view. Altho it was raining the entire time, I could see the lake & enjoy the vista view.
Cons: The aging lamps could use updating. Grateful for a little breakfast, yogurt or more fruit, other than 4 oranges, would have been nice.
Location: Easy to find, right off the highway, but very, very quiet. It's located close to many northern shore activities, a more modest rate than most. Thanks!
This was an older property, & felt more like e a motel. I was greeted by friendly, professional owners who worked hard to accommodate my special needs (a pet). I was happy to even get a room there, as this time of year is very busy in the north shore. The price was quite reasonable, & included breakfast in the morning in a sweet little dining room they had. The room was basic, furniture rather dated, but the beds were comfortable, great pillows, & altho it was right off the hwy, it was remarkably quiet. I had a great night's sleep!! the room also had thick, new towels, & a new, small fridge & microwave - very convenient to warm up my dinner. They also allowed me to check out a little later, as I was enjoying the quiet of the morning : all in all, I'd definitely stay there again, & would recommend this quaint little inn to friends!

Great view if ....

Greatview if they would cut down some trees so you could actually sit out on the deck and look up to the lake. Nothing like the Internet said and the pictures on there must be from years ago when the trees were young

Quaint hotel right on the water.

Posted Aug 8, 2017
We enjoyed our stay. It was very warm the few days that we were there so we could sleep with the sliding glass door open and listen to the waves hitting the shore. Very peaceful environment. The breakfest was good and the rooms were clean. The only thing I missed was being able to wake up and sit out on the deck with a cup of coffee as there were no coffee makers in the room.

Cliff Dweller recently has new owners. They are working on fixing the place up and I expect it will turn out very nicely. We will be back.

This hotel was ok. Not super impressed. They were very friendly and had breakfast in the morning. Room was clean but very small for the three of us.

Convenient comfy clean cheap cute calm closetolake

New friendly owners take older simple unit and refresh it. 10' from lake. Peacful and scenic hiking/relaxing galore! Not fancy not costly. Lake sounds/view area to die for. Mom n Pop make it personal and work hard to make older upgraded. Don't need pool or AC or 300 chnls. UR hiking or listening to the lake with a glass of wine on the balcony where your feet can touch the water. We'll be back!!!

Lake Superior outside our window

Posted Jun 24, 2017
Pros: How close it was to Lake Superior,.
Cons: The controls in the shower could be better
Location: Ray Berglund State Wayside- there is a stairway that takes you to a trail along the Onion River complete with waterfalls. Temperance State Park
Our first night we went to sleep hearing the waves of Lake Superior. Very comfortable rooms and a great breakfast.

Thanks for your input, the Fire Marshall had us remove all of the coffee makers due to them being a fire hazard. We have approved makers if requested.

Staff was very friendly!! Breakfast was great, especially Michelle's homemade cinnamon rolls. Yum! Falling asleep with the sound of Superior's waves against the shore was a treat😋 We plan on returning!!
