The Cove Point Lodge is a very nice, clean, and modern (built 1995) resort in a great location on Lake Superior's North Shore. My wife and I stayed in a lodge room (cottages also available) with a very comfortable king bed, gas fireplace, and a patio overlooking the lake. Our room had a small TV and a small assortment of cable channels. You don't really need TV, except maybe the weather Channel, in an area like this. There is no Internet access, and our cell phones didn't work, but that was fine with me.
The pool is a bit small, but it was usually empty, even though the hotel was booked full. Everyone goes out to the hiking trails and other attractions, so the hotel is pretty quiet during the day. There were very few children, which is good because there wouldn't be a whole lot for them to do.
The grounds are very well kept, and there is a path that you can walk out to the edge of the very rocky cove.
The dining room has superb food, if a bit pricey. The Walleye was perfect!
The breakfast is kind of weird. Pickled herring, pickled beets, tomatoes, and hard-boiled eggs. There's toast and cereal too, for the non-Scandinavians.
I can't think of any complaints about this place, though it would be nice to have a larger refrigerator. Most of the restaurants nearby are fantastic, but fairly expensive. The mini-fridge in our room barely held a six-pack and a couple of sandwiches.
Unique Quality: All rooms have views of the lake, as does the main hall and dining room.
The Lodge is a short distance to Split Rock Lighthouse, Tettegouche State Park, and Gooseberry Falls.
We had a beautiful stay here. They have many different type of accomadations from a simple room to a room with a Jacuzzi and fireplace, which we had.
There is a restaurant and bar, pool and public jacuzzi and sauna. Scandinavian breakfast buffet for morning that was superb. Great dinners served at night!
All the rooms have big windows facing Lake Superior.
I can't wait to go back again and again.
Loved that it is a smoke free facility.
Unique Quality: Just across the road from the Superior hiking trail and you can do a loop that brings you north of Beaver Bay and then walk back to the Lodge. Close to many other hot spots to visit such as Gooseberry Falls, Split Rock Lighthouse, or if you just want to sit in their lobby by the great fire, you can read or play games or do puzzles.
Directions: Located just as you enter Beaver Bay. Look for the big Adirondack Chair on the right side of the road.
