Stayed for a single night at the cottages on a road trip around the Lake. Originally intended on staying in Duluth but after driving through was much happier with this location. Directly over the road from the lake, the cottage we stayed in was small, rustic but comfortable, I'd even go as far as cosy. The manager was very friendly...

The throw-back appeal of these quaint cottages, from the lack of A/C to the knotty pine walls, to the Superior view make this a wonderful little get-away. As a couple just staying for a night on our way through to Canada, we found the room to have everything we needed; very clean, quiet, low-key, and relaxing. An incredibly scenic and...

Although we were warned that the rooms were "just rustic cabins," Northshore was a perfect place to spend the night for a pair of typical tent-campers. Very clean and well kept, private kitchenette, fridge, sink, shower, and bathroom. Sheets were fresh and soft. Lake was in view, prairie of flowers out back. Highly recommeded for simple folk on budget--great deal!

A group of four of us rented their two-bedroom cottage for a night. It was a great property, with a view of the lake and a clean, well-supplied place to stay. The two beds and two baths cabin has a full kitchen, so we had no trouble cooking supper and breakfast. The cabin was excellent value for money - much...

We stayed here for two nights in late September. The cabins were definitely older but were kept clean. Needed some serious updating but for the price you can't expect too much more. Bathroom was extremely small though. View was great though, right across the street from Superior. Quiet and the price was very reasonable. Manager was super nice as well....

I do a lot of research before booking any accomodation andq chose this place because of the location and price. We were very satisfied with our one bedroom cabin. It was clean, had everything we needed and was quiet. We stayed for 5 nights. We'd definitely stay here again!

I came into town for a couple days' bumming around en route to a family get-together, and just winged it on the lodgings. After going in to price some rather seedy chain hotels and motels along I-35 in the direction of West Duluth, I just gave up in disgust, blew past the main part of town, drove up London Road...

We had a very nice time. The location was great. You get a taste of being in the wilderness but town is just a short drive away. The cabins were very cozy and warm and everything was as expected. They even provided a tv with a great movie selection. The kitchen provides basic needs and were even supplied with tea...

We have mixed feelings about our stay here. At first glance, we were happy to be in these old fashioned little cabins. The good news is that we slept well and the shower was hot. On the other hand, the entire property seems to be in disrepair. The cabins are just falling apart - sagging roofs, chipping paint, even the...

Based on the review I'd read here on TripAdvisor, as well as the photos on North Shore Cottages website, I anticipated the lodgings to be small, a bit dated, but clean, quaint, and well maintained. And they were, in fact, all of those things, with the exception of well maintained. Chipping paint and water stained and drooping ceilings were difficult...

“Duplexes are small, big enough for a couple. Full cabins appeared to be more spacious for kids.”
