north shore accomodations?

6 posts in this topic

Hi fellow fm'ers,

I am planning a family trip to the north shore for mid june. My wife knows some folks in silver bay that we will be visiting while we are there so I was thinking something between two harbors and grand marias would be ideal. I am also hoping to get a day on superior going after some lakers. I have a 17' alumacraft w/ a 50hp and i am thinking that might be a bit undersized for superior, so I guess I am looking for a good charter service, as well as good lodging reccomendations.

Plus If you can think of anything else in the area that is a must see or must do please reply.

Thanks,

Kyle Kreisler

Kyle, there are a lot of nice resorts along the North Shore and some decent campgrounds as well. Not a lot of them can be mentioned on here, but search for the Two Harbors Chamber to get more info. As far as your boat goes, they put a small craft harbor in on scenic 61, it is called McQuade. I plan on putting my boat in there and it is a 14ft. with a 25 horse. Of course it will have to be REALLY calm, but I think it should be ok. Good luck!

The only lodging I know of north of two harbors is Grand Superior Lodge. It is a top notch facility with the best food in the state. I'm not sure if that's the type of place you are looking for or just the standard motel. If you are interested in a charter you've come to the right place. Being in the business and knowing the quality of the trips offered leads me to recomend Bill's Great Lakes Charters, Hard Times, and Skipper's Kid (Charter operated by Tom, AKA Skipper's Kid on this website). If you're interested you might be able to get a better deal with your lodging in duluth if you have a charter booked with the charters I mentioned. Check out their websites and if you want more information or have any questions feel free to send me an e-mail and I'll help in finding you a great charter. I'm sure Skipper's Kid will chime in and be a good deal of help to you as well.

Kyle,

Try Sve's Resort, about 20 miles out of Two Harbors, It's about half way between Two Harbors and Silver Bay. They have nice cabins right on Lake Superior, reasonable prices also. They have a boat launch right there or there is a new one about 2 miles back towards Two Harbors. I launch my 16' lund with 40hp, you just have to pick your days, lake usually quiets down toward evening. If it's a nice night you can boat up to Splitrock Lighthouse, great view from the water.

There's a motel in Silver Bay on 61. It's an Americinn or days inn, one of those.

Is that the new giant hotel they just built like a year ago in the huge open area?

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
