An Authentic Minnesota-Winter Log Cabin Experience

WOW! I am so sad to have left Grand Superior Lodge. This place is so special. I have fallen in love with the property, the log cabin I stayed in, the amenities and location. I had such a wonderful weekend there! @jonkreye

The Log Cabins at Grand Superior are an authentic throwback to a bygone era. But they aren’t your grandpa’s cabins.

Modern amenities meld with classic log construction for a perfect North Shore vacation destination. All without having to worry about shoveling or splitting firewood to keep warm. We’ll do the work. You enjoy the cabin.

Recipe for a Winter Log Cabin Experience


Step 1 (Book it!)

Coordinate schedules with your loved one(s) and book your Studio, One-Bedroom, or Two-Bedroom Cabin. 3-4 nights is the ideal length, but a 2-night getaway will work in a pinch.

Step 2 (Pre-Arrival)

Be sure to pack plenty of layers weather on the north shore can be unpredictable.

Load up the cooler. We’ve got full kitchens in our cabins, so you will get the chance to bond over the preparation of your favorite meals.

Recommended stops on the way to Grand Superior include Ursa Minor Brewing in Duluth,  Russ Kendall’s Smokehouse in Knife River, Spokengear in Two Harbors (if you want to rent a Fat Bike – Great winter fun!).

Step 3 (Arrival Day)

Check-in in our Grand log lodge, and unload your gear in your cabin. Whew. It’s been a long day. Save the cooking for tomorrow, and head into our on-site restaurant to unwind with a local craft beer or glass of wine and share some of our delicious apps. Still hungry? You’ll love our entrée selections. The Cedar Planked Salmon is our favorite.

Step 4 Days 2-4 (Mix and Match)

Sleep in. Relax in front of the fire. Play in the snow. Check out our free snowshoes and go for a hike. Read a good book. Explore frozen waterfalls at Gooseberry Falls State Park (just 2-miles north). Take a fat bike ride through the Lake County Demonstration Forest. Play a game of cribbage. Take a dip in the pool.

If you brought your sled you can hit the incredible North Shore State Trail.

Definitely treat yourself to a massage.

Step 5 (Departure)

You’re going to have so much fun, that you’re going to want to book your next vacation before you leave. Just swing into the front desk, and we’ll help you find the perfect dates for your next North Shore experience.

Pro-tip: Add an extra day next time.

What our Log Cabin Guests have to say

Our cabins are awesome, but you don't have to take our word for it

Everything about our stay was fantastic. We were provided with everything we needed and really felt like guests, not just customers. This stay was a great reminder of why I need to keep coming back more often. – Mike C.

Service was wonderful. All staff very friendly and helpful. – Sandra B.

This was the first time we had our ENTIRE family with us and it was amazing.  As long as the dog-friendly accommodations are available at Grand Superior, we will definitely come back. – Lena J.
