Lake Superior hotels are places to anchor while you're exploring the northern reaches of Minnesota. From the port city of Duluth north to the Canadian border, you'll find miles and miles of Lake Superior shoreline. Whether you're planning to soak in the Great Lakes scenery and visit a few museums or you're looking for high adventure, you'll find Lake Superior lodging close to where you want to go.
Not surprisingly, the greatest concentration of Lake Superior hotels can be found in Duluth, the biggest city in Northern Minnesota. Canal Park, right on the beach, is home to a variety of hotels, all with a great view of the largest of the Great Lakes. This mix of national brands and locally owned properties can suit all kind of budgets and vacations plans. The Comfort Suites Canal Park hotel (pictured) serves a fresh breakfast every morning, included in the room rate. The 123 guestrooms are well equipped with refrigerators, flat-screen TVs, and plenty of room to stretch out. You'll also have the chance upgrade to a luxury room with whirlpool tubs and views of Lake Superior on your Great Lakes vacations.
Farther north, you'll find more options for Lake Superior hotels in the communities of Two Harbors and Silver Bay. As in Duluth, these properties are located along the lake and close to all of the things to do enjoyed on and off shore. People from all over the world have enjoyed the hospitality and unique setting of Two Harbors Rail Traincar Suites. These re-purposed train boxcars have full restored and expertly decorated, each one with a theme. You'll have a chance to enjoy a wide variety of nearby activities, including Minnesota golf and admiring the views of Gooseberry Falls.
Up in Grand Marais, you'll find a collection of hotels that work together to provide a welcome to Lake Superior visitors. The Shoreline Inn overlooks the East Bay and scenic Artists Point, which can be enjoyed from the guestrooms and the large deck. This well-tended property includes WiFi Internet access, in-room refrigerators, and free breakfast every morning. The other sister properties, including the Aspen Lodge and the Grand Marais Super 8, are located within minutes of the lake. No matter your budget of vacation plans, you'll find a hotel that suits you just perfectly.
The options for Lake Superior lodging extend beyond what you'd expect. Many people planning Great Lakes fishing getaways choose to stay in Lake Superior cabins, which range from genuinely rustic to well equipped. If you'd prefer to do some Minnesota camping, you'll also find several campgrounds along the shores of the big lake. Like the cabins, the campgrounds run the gamut from basic rusting camping to modern sites that can accommodate the biggest RVs. If you're interested in the comfort a hotel provides, you could enjoy the great outdoors during the day and return to a cozy, climate-controlled room after the sun has set.
Whatever you choose for Lake Superior lodging, you can expect to find welcoming innkeepers eager to share a warm midwestern welcome and ready to answer any questions you may have. They can make suggestions about the best places to go swimming, where to find a kayak, or how to find a Lake Superior fishing charter. After you've spent a day in the great outdoors, it's nice to return your room and get a good night's sleep to prepare for another day of adventure and attractions. If you choose one of the Lake Superior hotels that serves a free breakfast, you can fuel up for a day of adventure without adding to your budget.
