What a cozy, charming, incredibly well put together place! Great attention to detail has been lovingly put into the rooms, cottages and grounds. We were in one of the 'motel' rooms and it was lovely. Beautiful, newly finished pine walls, hardwood floors, and complete with cable TV, A/C, mini fridge, microwave, and the option to borrow from a collection of 500 DVDs. Each room opens to a deck, ours with an umbrella table and four chairs overlooking the beautifully-maintained lawn and garden.
And the garden is SO lovely!! It's a pleasure to look at and is clearly the product of both vision and a lot of hard work. There are also window boxes filled with flowers adorning cottage windows, and colorful planters on the deck divider walls of the 'motel' units. There are a number of fire rings around the grounds where guests can enjoy an evening fire. The cottages and larger 2-room units have grills available, as well.. A short walk leads you down to the lake where one could sit and enjoy the gorgeous view for hours.
The owners (new as of four years ago) are warm and friendly and have created a wonderfully inviting place to stay. This was a lucky find and we will absolutely be back! Next time we hope to stay in one of the lakeside cottages. Already looking forward to it!

We recently spent 4 nights in a very nice, clean and comfortable housekeeping cabin with a deck overlooking Lake Superior. Our experience was excellent from beginning to end. The resort is very well kept. It is obvious that the owners, Kirsten and Ted, take pride in their property. The cabin was fully stocked with everything needed for a comfortable stay, including hotel quality bath towels. The beach below the cabins is a rock shelf that is perfect for building a campfire and taking in the awesome majesty of the lake. The resort is about halfway between Two harbors and Silver Bay, and is close to a number of state parks and waysides, so it is a great base from which to explore the North Shore. We will certainly plan to stay there again. By the way, Kirsten's flower garden is awesome.

We started renting a cabin at Gooseberry Park Cottage :)s and Motel right after Ted and Kirsten bought the place. We were impressed the first year we stayed, but each year it just keeps getting better and better. Kirsten and a few Master Gardeners have made a beautiful garden space for people to sit, walk, meditate.
There are six cabins and four motel rooms...they are all VERY CLEAN and nice. Kris and Ted take care of the place , no big staff.
We think it would be perfect for a seniors.... :)

Room Tip: Weekends fill up fast...Call and make a reservation ASAP.

We stayed three nights at the Gooseberry Park Cottages and Motel. We were in motel rooms 10 and 11. Both rooms had window air units. Two days were over 85 during the day so we appreciated the AC unit. Rooms are very well done in knotty pine. Bathrooms are very nice. The bathroom is small but very usable, We had camp fires two nights. All the motel rooms except room 11 had a deck with umbrella facing the lake (see picture). What a great little place. All the cottages are recently update with siding and new roofs. The place looks very north woods with craftsman designed architecture. Nice path down to Lake Superior and fire ring at the lake. It does not have a beach shoreline... it is called a ledge shoreline. You can get down to the water to cool your legs off... must stand on large rock structures in the water.

Room Tip: Cottages catch much more of the cool breeze off Lake Superior

Thanks again Trip Advisor, saw reviews and decided to try. Found fantastic clean quiet cabins in great location. Have visited north shore many times and were up for annual heritage days parade in Two Harbors. Location about 10 miles north of Two Harbors , 2 more to gooseberry falls or about 7 to the lighthouse. Across street from Rustic Cafe - to die for pie !!
We were in cabin #6 and it was beautiful and had everything. Two queen beds, one upstairs (loft), one down - comfortable soft sheets. Fans in all rooms. A nice kitchen with stove, microwave and all. Well stocked with all essentials. Clean bathroom with hairdryer and soap - bring shampoo as they instruct. Nice front deck with table,chairs and grill.
Fantastic view of the Lake out front window with the only thing we heard - the beautiful sound of waves.
Beautiful landscaping, flowers, garden and wood carvings.
Friendly, helpful owners there to help.
A great find , can't wait to return.
