Wow, I rarely write reviews however I felt compelled to do so after this stay. We traveled with our three young children (ages 1-7) and loved how much room we had to spread out. Everything was super clean and seemed brand new. The most impressive part of our stay was the views!

Wondering if anybody has stayed in unit 6A/B. We have always stayed in 14 or 15 but no availability in those for our Sept. 2016 Fall. trip I know 6 isn't a corner unit like 14 and 15 are but wondering if you have direct views of the lake from main floor living room area?
Hi Cindy, Unit 6, though a middle unit, does still offer great views of Lake Superior from the main level living room.

"Rooms are as described on website."
"lakeside rooms are the best, with the gas fireplace, at surfside. It is quieter less families and children. It's more romantic."
"This is NOT a hotel, it is a townhome"
"ask for lakeview room. ours was on the lower level and the view was a little obscure"
"Rent an entire townhouse (3000 & sleeps 8), the main level plus loft (sleeps 6) or just the lower level suite (sleeps 2 with a jacuzzi)."
