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.

Best fire pit ever!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home. Top notch furnishings. Great location. Not far from Duluth or Two Harbors. Our two grandsons loved loading up the wheelbarrow with wood for our nightly fire. Loved the sauna. We were there for the summer equinox. We will have to get back in the winter!

Pleasant north shore experience

  • 5 of 5

The location of this place is very convenient. The place is exactly as shown in pictures. While there was another family on the neighboring suite, we never really saw them and this felt very private with our own side of a large yard. We enjoyed setting up the fire in the pit. Kathy was an excellent host and shared all info in a very accurate and timely manner.

The place is very close to the highway so you do hear that noise when in the yard.

Fantastic spot for a long stay or a quick getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We stay along the north shore a lot but haven't spent a lot of time around the Knife River area. We lucked upon this place and will definitely stay again. I was worried there would be traffic noise with the location being so close to the road but we really didn't hear a thing. It was just the two of us, so it's way more room than we really needed but I needed space to spread out my laptop and stuff to do some work and there's a great desk area here. The kitchen was well stocked and almost new. Beds and bedding were super comfortable. They've also added on a sauna unit to each suit and it's a great add on. Nothing like a sauna to warm up after hiking on a chilly day. After baking ourselves silly in the sauna, we stood outside to cool off and watched the starts. Perfect! We will definitely stay here again!!

The property was well kept up, clean, and the owner thought of everything we needed for our stay.

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time here because the owner did so much to make sure we felt like we were at home. The house had everything you would find at home including the dishes, firewood for the fire pit, and the bug spray just in case we forgot it. The owner made the booking process easy and she included easy to follow directions for all the aspects of the house. When she found out we were bringing children she even provided a high chair, which really came in handy. Everything in the house was well taken care and my family had a great time. We would highly recommend this property to other families looking to spend some time in Duluth.

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!

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.
