Overview

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 St. Louis County

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.

Beautiful and relaxing spot

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised to see so much green space around the property and very much enjoyed the fire pit. One night we grilled out and had a fun dinner on the patio. The kitchen was very well equipped and clearly an attention to detail on all levels here. Would most definitely stay again if the opportunity presents!

Perfect for a weekend up North!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the Fitzgerald Suite over the weekend with our adult children. The suite has everything you will need for a great weekend - beautiful patio and grill, an amazing area for enjoying a campfire, and the kitchen has everything you might need. We enjoyed hiking during the day and there are many hiking options since this property is conveniently located off of Highway 61, close to Two Harbors. While there is an adjacent suite, we enjoyed having complete privacy as the outdoor activities are on opposite sides of the building.

This place is great

  • 5 of 5

Traveled from Ohio with wife and 2 kids and stayed at the Fitzgerald over Labor Day weekend. We had a fantastic time and this venue had a lot to do with it. It has lots of room to lounge both indoors and outdoors. The favorite areas on the property included the master bedroom and bathroom, the kitchen and living room, the patio, and the fire pit areas. My mother and father in-law stayed in the 2nd bedroom and they loved it too. It is easy to get to literally right off Highway 61. When we come back to the area we will definitely consider staying at the Fitzgerald again.

Exactly as Expected - Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a nice place to spend a few days up north!! The suite looks exactly like the photos, and it was stocked well with everything you need! We had our adult children with us, and the two bedrooms plus the pull out couch was perfect! We were there when it was extremely warm, so we didn't utilize the sauna, but it looked wonderful! We sat out on the patio each evening, it was so peaceful!!

Our only "drawback" thing is that there is no air conditioning, and as it was 91 degrees outside when we got there, it was virtually impossible to cool the suite down. The way the windows are, there is no real way to get the air flow moving throughout the suite, so we were on the warm side. That being said, we would not have a problem staying there again, just not in the heat of the summer for our warm-blooded family ;-)

The communication with Kathy was terrific, and everything went very smooth! Thanks so much for the beautiful place - it truly was wonderful!!

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.
