Midwest Living Review
Grand Superior Lodge is the perfect base for year-round outdoor recreation. Situated just north of Two Harbors on Lake Superior, guests can choose to stay in lodge rooms ($89 to $259), cabins or lake homes (from $189). As you'd expect, the decor is heavy North Woods, but not over-the-top.
Our cabin was comfortable, modern and immaculately clean. Lodgings vary in proximity to the big lake, but Grand Superior has a private 1,500-foot stretch of shore so that all guests can get right to the water. Not only does the lodge maintain a robust calendar full of evening bonfires and s'mores, guided hikes, charter fishing, ice cream socials and live music, the resort is also practically adjacent to golf courses, major hiking and biking trails, snowmobile trails and state parks (Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock Lighthouse are closest). Guests can borrow bikes, canoes and snowshoes, and in winter, make arrangements for dogsled trips.
Splashing Rock Restaurant in the main lodge serves breakfast, lunch and dinner year-round (the deck makes a nice spot to watch for passing ships). Specialties include walleye, beer-battered whitefish, and a North Shore Salad with wild rice and lingonberry vinaigrette. Splashing Rock will also prepare your fresh catch or put together a picnic lunch on request.
