About Chateau LeVeaux

Darwin and I have been coming to the North Shore of Lake Superior since we were children. We both moved away from Minnesota as young adults, but the draw of the Midwest and the Lake pulled us back. Every summer we would bring our children to the lake to revisit the fun we had as kids: skipping rocks, the Alpine slide in Lutsen, watching the aerial lift bridge in Duluth, and spending time as a family. We decided to buy this condo, so we could have a place as a base of operations as we continued to explore the North Shore. Someday we hope to retire to the condo, and this spectacular view of the lake.

Chateau LeVeaux purchased this condo in 2014

Why Chateau LeVeaux chose Tofte

We chose Chateau LeVeaux for the view. We have stayed in many resorts, hotels, and cabins on the North Shore, and this view kept us coming back. It is a smaller resort, but it is great for the kids -- self contained pool, hot tub, and fun for the whole family. We chose #25 because it is nicely decorated and comfortable. It is perfect for family time.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the views from the living room, the spectacular kitchen with its amazing red cabinets and granite countertops. The living room/dining room combination has plenty of space for doing a puzzle or playing cards as a family. The bathrooms are roomy -- and it is great to have more space and 2 showers for our busy family!

End of Summer Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely weekend with my aunt, two sisters, and my niece. I love the set up, with a table where we can play games and have meals. The beds were comfortable, the shower on the main floor was amazing, and the view of Lake Superior was incredible. The first night up we were treated to a fantastic display of lightning as a storm broke over the lake. It was a relaxing weekend with family for us, but Casa Norte would be a great home base for people wanting to hike or ski as well. Love the new deck at the Chateau, too! I will definitely be back to check out more of the seasons at this cozy getaway.

Perfect location with a few tweaks

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this condo in mid-July, right around one of the nicest times of year at the North Shore. All in all, the stay was fine.

First for the pros:

- This condo has a spectacular location! The view is amazing and unobstructed, and you can hear the waves right from your condo. Sitting on the deck in the morning when the sun was hitting it was my favorite part before starting our day.

- The condo itself is nicely updated, kitchen was very nice. We used the oven once to cook dinner and had everything we needed to make the meal.

- The condo is central on Hwy 61 to restaurants and easy access to Grand Marais if you want to spend the day there

- The management at the condo complex were very helpful with any issues we had

Now for the cons:

- This condo had NO blinds on the patio door or window in the living room/downstairs area. This means everybody can look into your condo at all hours of the day and night. We spoke to the condo manager about this and they said the owners are required to have blinds and they would talk to the owner. So hopefully this will get fixed.

- There is a bonfire pit right in front of this condo. This was a huge issue for us seeing as how we had no blinds for privacy. Not to mention smoke coming right in our condo, so we had to keep the patio door closed (sealing off any sound from the waves so couldn’t hear those at night). One night we counted 14 people out by the bonfire pit (some sort of college graduation party with people not even staying at the complex). At night, with our lights on inside, they could all see right into our condo – not private at all for us. It could get quite loud too with all the people right outside your condo. We did mention to the condo management though and they went out right at 11pm and asked them to break up the party. Not sure why they don’t move the bonfire pit down the lawn to the edge of the building, where it won’t be right in front of any condos.

- The bedroom upstairs was barely a legal bedroom – no window in there. They just didn’t have a door on the door opening, so technically it was ‘legal’ since there was a window in the loft area. But still felt very claustrophobic. Also having other people sleep in the 2 beds in the loft would not be very private, seeing as how there is no door to close for the bedroom.

With a few small improvements (move the bonfire pit if possible, put blinds up!) I’d give this condo 5 stars. Still was a nice stay but next year we’d likely stay down the road a bit

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. We have owned this condo for less then a year and it had no blinds when we purchased it. I have never had an issue with privacy and the blinds (even over a very busy 4th of July weekend) but I certainly understand that some people desire more privacy. We will talk about adding some window coverings, but do not want to mess up the amazing view. The upstairs bedroom/loft is something that we cannot change. We cannot add a window to the bedroom (I wish we could)! There is a screen that legally can separate the 2 areas, although our plan is to remove that and make it easier to use by hanging a curtain. I am glad that you were happy with our location, the managers, and the rest of the condo. Chateau LeVeaux is a lovely place to stay on the North Shore.

Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my sisters and niece one wintry weekend. The place is clean and comfy, perfect for a family or small group of friends. There's a gorgeous view of Lake Superior from the living room and even in the winter the sounds of the lake were audible and hypnotic. We played cards, cooked, swam, took a trip to Ben Franklins in Grand Marais. I am looking forward to visiting again this summer and enjoying the amenities of a warmer season. I highly recommend Casa Norte (as the owners have named it). It's sweet little getaway on the North Shore.

The North Shore of Lake Superior has so much to offer travelers. Our condo is located directly on the lake and near some of the best of Minnesota's state parks. During your drive up, stop at Gooseberry Falls State Park to see the water fall or hike a mile for endless views of Lake Superior and agate hunting. Visit Split Rock Lighthouse and see where the light house keeper and his family lived. Stop in at Tettegouche State Park in the winter for snowshoeing (rentals for the whole family available!) Go fishing near the condo at Temperance River or Cascade River State Parks. Take a leisurely drive and use the condo as your base as you visit Grand Marais -- voted America's Coolest Small Town in 2015 by Budget Travel Magazine. Grand Marais is an artsy community with great restaurants and live music to enjoy. Head farther north to the Grand Portage on the Canadian Border. You can gamble at the casino, hike to the highest waterfall in Minnesota at Grand Portage State Park, learn about voyageurs at the Grand Portage National Monument, and look across the Pigeon River at Canada. There is so much to see and do on the North Shore. Our condo #25 at Chateau LeVeaux is a great base of operations.
