LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! Artist's Point is at our back door. Quiet, away from U.S. Highway 61. With lake view rooms and sundeck at water's edge, The Shoreline has been first choice for generations of families. Fireside, lake view lobby. This charming village is on Lake Superior's North Shore less than two hours Northeast of Duluth, on scenic Highway 61. Grand Marais is the Hub of activities in Cook County, located at the foot of the Gunflint Trail, the gateway to the famous Boundary Waters Canoe Area, and remote Isle Royale. Just ten minutes to the Gunflint Hills Golf Course or Pincushion cross country center and twenty minutes to Lutsen Mountains Ski Area, Alpine Slide and the Superior National Golf Course.Walk to shops, restaurants, the lighthouse and the Grand Marais recreation center and pool. Free continental breakfast. Rooms with king beds are available, as are family or connecting rooms. Smoke-free environment. Traditional charm. Personal service. A guest once said, "It's like coming home."

Our room (102) appears to be last renovated in the late 80s. There was paint on the worn carpet, threadbare bed spread, and faded furniture. The tiles in the bathtub have been painted over and now the paint is peeling. The towel rack fell off the wall when the towel was removed.

Stayed here for 2 nights in late October. The Inn is in a great location, walking distance to most restaurants, shops, and attractions. However, the rooms need TLC. The rooms reminded me of the decor in the 50’s. The beds were saggy, walls need paint, bathroom tile needed

No central heat. Was told the boiler was broken. Didn't even offer a discount for no heat all night. Nowhere in the building to get bottled water (tap water was nasty). Broken window and casement was cracked and peeling. Bathroom fan was broken.

Do you have air conditioning?
Sorry I saw this so late. But... We have not been there in summer for many years so I am not sure about how effective their AC is. I do believe they have it but I would contact the hotel directly and talk with them.

Do you allow small pets?
I am sorry, we do not allow pets at The Shoreline Inn. Our sister property, The Aspen Inn, does allow pets. You can reach them at the 218-387-2448

"Forget this venue"
"East view of the lake is the only redeeming factor."
"Dont stay here."
"Rooms on lake side have better views, are more expensive. "City side" have views of the parking lot and stores across the street."
"The rooms overlooking the lake are more expensive, but have a great view."
US$88 - US$179 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
