About the property

Newly Built Suite In A Beautiful "Lighthouse" Building Near Lake Superior

The North Shore Lighthouse Suites are completely finished. The building was a copy of a lighthouse in Copper Harbor Michigan. Prior to our purchase of the property, in the fall of 2014, the building served as a quaint nautical themed restaurant.

♦ ♦ We now have an outdoor sauna....one for each suite. Pictures coming soon ♦ ♦

It has now become two very spacious living quarters with all the comforts of home and more. Each unit has been named after two infamous Lake Superior Ships, the Fitzgerald and the Anderson. Each suite offers large master bedrooms with spacious bathrooms, including whirlpool tubs. The additional bedroom is also spacious and comfortable. The open floor plan for the kitchen and living room make it perfect for your group to unwind after a long day exploring the North Shore. Along with the cozy gas fireplaces, you will find your own large private patio. Equipped with furniture and gas grill. You will also find massive fire pits that will seat everyone in your group. No need to bring firewood, that is supplied free of charge. Need to do laundry? No problem, we have a washer and dryer conveniently located in each suite.

We can supply you maps of beautiful hiking trails with hidden waterfalls when you book with us. We are working on other "perks" as well.

As skiing season approaches we are only 3 miles from the Korkki Nordic ski area. The Errik Harju Ski trail is just north of us in Two Harbors and the Lester Park ski trail is south of us about 10 minutes. Down hill skiing is about 30 minutes away at Spirit Mountain.

Big groups or families can rent out both suites to accommodate up to 12 people!

About Kathy Kunst

We are business owners in Duluth MN. Every year we take our kids on a family vacation and rent through VRBO. We always talked about opening up a vacation rental and when the Lighthouse Restaurant was for sale we knew exactly what we wanted to do with it!

Kathy Kunst purchased this house in 2014

Why Kathy Kunst chose Minnesota

The lighthouse suites are located between Duluth and Two Harbors, 150 yards from the shores of Lake Superior. This unique building was built in 2007 as a quaint nautical themed restaurant. When the business closed it's doors we were were able to purchase it with one thing in mind, to create one of the most unique and incredible places to stay on the North Shore.

What makes this house unique

We were able to take the wide open space of the building and sculpt it into 2 spacious suites. This allow us to rent them separately or together for large groups or families.

The North Shore scenic railroad runs near the suites. On this night there were 2 trains switching direction on the track One was a sight seeing train and one was a mystery train tour. This is one as it left our area heading back to Duluth. The tracks are used for entertainment only.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both sides of the property for a family weekend. It worked great for 4 couples and 2 teenagers. The suites were well appointed. We all had a great time and were impressed with the property. It was nice to have the fire pits and saunas to use. Kathy was great to work with. We would stay here again!

Great stay, very kid friendly.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with 3 young children. This place is very kid friendly being set back from the road with a large yard and easy side entry/exit.

We will definitely stay here again.

Highly recommended.

Very clean and very well appointed.

5 of us stayed here fir a ski weekend in Duluth. King bed was ok, but mattress was worn to the point like we felt we were in 2 hammocks. Otherwise the property is very nice. We definitely would come again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. I am sorry to hear you were disappointed with the mattress. You are the first guest in the last 1 1/2 years to comment it was not supportive enough. I understand many people have a different expectation of firmness when it comes to mattresses. I have had other reviews that the beds were very comfortable. The mattress is not that old so it can't be that "worn", it's just not an extra firm support. I will look into getting a supportive mattress pad so others can have an option if they like a firm bed. Glad you enjoyed the suite and we were happy to accommodate an early check in for your group. Hope you consider coming back. (the Anderson has 2 king beds and might be another option for you) Thank you again ~ Kathy and Pat

Beautiful, clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family, 4 adults and 2 teens, enjoyed a mid-week stay. The building is unique, the spaces clean and modern. The kitchen is well appointed and great for home cooked meals. We really enjoyed the cozy gas fireplace and the sauna. Kathy was friendly and easy to work with.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic stay in our lighthouse suite. The layout and amenities are wonderful. Beds were super comfy and warm, great fireplace and the kitchen is a great size. The location between Two Harbors and Duluth is ideal. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks again for your hospitality. Beth

The lighthouse suites are located between Duluth and Two Harbors, 150 yards from the shores of Lake Superior. This unique building was built in 2007 as a quaint nautical themed restaurant. When the business closed it's doors we were were able to purchase it with one thing in mind, to create one of the most unique and incredible places to stay on the North Shore. Nestled between little Sucker and Sucker rivers, the beauty is everywhere. Just a 15 minute drive from Duluth and 10 minutes to Two Harbors. Knife River is just 4 miles from the suites. This old fishing village has the famous Russ Kendall's smoked fish house. Emily's Lighthouse restaurant and a family run candy shop that cannot be missed. There is also a marina. The McQuade safe harbor is a few miles away and has public access to Lake Superior. Tom's logging camp is a mile away. A great place to learn about the history of the lumberjacks and see some animals. A must see if you have children. The sucker river is one of the most beautiful rivers on the North Shore. It flies under the radar of visitors because it is not a state park. You'll find it a great place to explore and you might decide to jump in the many swimming holes it offers.
