Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Duluth - North Shore Lighthouse Suites

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.

♦ ♦ Check out our new video! Click on the video tab above ♦ ♦

♦ ♦ 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.

Lovely Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

You have done an amazing job of creating beautiful, comfortable, suites in this former restaurant. Attention to detail was much appreciated. Location is great for visiting Duluth or Two Harbors or excursions further up the shore. We hope to return soon.

Beautiful Place for a North Shore Adventure

  • 5 of 5

The suite was absolutely perfect for our North Shore trip. We had 5 people, including a very busy 1 year old, staying in the suite and there was plenty of room and felt like a home away from home. Kathy even had a highchair for our little one, which made meals times much easier. The location is right between Two Harbors and Duluth which allowed us to easily explore both towns. Overall we loved our stay!

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

It wouldn't be difficult to use too many adjectives (stunning, picturesque, romantic, idyllic) to describe this location. Listing is 100% accurate, clean well maintained owner communicates very timely. There is plenty to see & do in Duluth and Two Harbors and can also take a scenic drive up Hwy 61. We loved our stay. I would definitely recommend this spot to my friends and family looking to unwind!

Beautiful northern Minnesota rental home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival of the Fitzgerald suite it was beautiful! Everything mirrored the pictures except for the wonderful new addition of the sauna! The accommodations were perfect for my girlfriends and I to have a girls weekend! The rental is in perfect proximity of both Duluth and Two Harbors. We hiked the Sucker River and saw the falls which were wonderful. Working with Kathy was great. She was responsive and kind in all of our interactions. We are excited to rebook for another stay next year!!!!

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.
