Small quiet cabins in a deeply wooded lot. Ours had one bedroom with queen bed and two twins on the entry porch. Three nights below zero and a wonderful gas fired free standing fire place stove. We did bring a small electric heater for the porch just to add a little extra comfort. We had a Tuesday through Friday winter...

We expected something much farther from the lake. Coming upon these gems with a Lake view was a thrill. Their charming character is comfortably cozy, and neat as could be. They thought of and provided for everything we could have wanted from bed linens, bath linens etc, and full kitchen needs; even an outside table with a BBQ! I just...

We had a great vacation, travelling the area, hiking, and relaxing in our cabin! The managing couple are friendly, efficient, and helpful, but allow you as much space as you need. The cabins are clean and modern (no wifi for you technomads). Ours had a lovely view of the island for which the resort was named, as well as the...

We stayed in a meticulously-kept cabin, close to lots of local activities. It was a nice, quiet location, very scenic. Excellent beds - very comfortable. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Great place, run by nice people. We were in a pinch and they really helped us out. We enjoyed the clean, rustic cabin in the woodsy setting with the view of the lake. Small but well appointed kitchen meant that we didn't have to go to restaurants, which is great when traveling with a baby! Thanks for everything!

Due to a change in our vacation plans, we needed a place to stay last minute on the North Shore. Island View welcomed us with open arms, made us feel welcome and comfortable, and were extremely friendly and were very accommodating. The cabins are quaint and comfortable, and extremely clean. Nice location to beaches, restaurants, hiking trails and sightseeing. I...

My family loves staying at Island View Resort in Knife River. This was our 10th visit and we are never disappointed. The cabins are rustic and take you back in time. They are always sparkling clean and have everything you need to enjoy your stay. The owners are great people and go out of their way to ensure you have...

I'm a huge fan of Island View Resort. The owners are really great people. Great views of Lake Superior and the cabins are super cute and nice. I'm coming back! Every morning I got up and walked down by the lake. Quite and peaceful (and a bit cold).

hotel was supposedly pet friendly, but our little dogs were on the furniture and we were reprimanded about it. If it's pet friendly what's the deal?? Our dogs had had baths before we left out of courtesy for the place and were clean.
