Although a lot of the little "Mom and Pop"
motels are rapidly being replaced with overpriced chains, the north shore still has quite a few very pleasant places to stay without paying $140 a night. I happened to catch the last room for the night at FLOOD BAY on my last trip. It is directly across from a scenic overlook on Lake Superior and is a throwback to the "good old days" of car travel.
For the traveler/couple who merely needs a hot shower and a cozy room with a comfortable bed, this is the ideal place for a night or two.
The room was small but cozy and charming with a full bathroom, very comfortable bed, and a TV. PERFECT for a road-weary traveler such as myself.
If you simply MUST have CABLE TV with 9 HBO CHANNELS, A PHONE, ROOM SERVICE....etc...then go ahead and spend
exhorbitant amounts of money elsewhere.
ME? I much prefer the quiet charm of a little room like those in the FLOOD BAY MOTEL.
Don and Judy Lauder (owners) were nice as could be, and the rates were VERY reasonable for what I wanted. I WILL stay there again on the next trip.
Two Harbors offers alot to do besides being a stopping point two the state parks, there is a great harbor and many little shops downtown(very touristy shops). 3M coropration was founded in Two Harbors and the museum of were it started is donation only. There are also many hotels in the town including some cheaper places. There are also many scattered up and down the north shore. (this pic is of the light house there, I think, it may be some other towns light house)
