We had a wonderful stay at Gooseberry Park Cottages and Motel! The room was spotless when we arrived. The grounds are beautifully maintained. We loved the access to the lake and the ability to have a fire right on the shore. I appreciated the many places to charge devices. The bedroom tv wasn't working for us, but we didn't need it so it was fine. The only "negative" for me was that we needed to keep the windows open at night since it was summer, which meant that there was a lot of road noise in the night. If you are a light sleeper, you might do better in one of the cottages (we were in the "motel" that is closer to the road. This was a small detail though and only a suggestion for someone who might be bothered by the noise. Overall, I would definitely stay here again (and hope we do)!

Hi Heather- Thank you so much for your kind and detailed review of Gooseberry Park Cottages and Motel. We sincerely appreciate it. Our main priority is cleanliness of our cottages and motel units/suites so we’re happy you noticed the effort. We are currently working on our internet strength so I apologize you may have experienced problems with the complimentary Netflix in the bedroom. Hopefully the satellite in the kitchen/living area sufficed during your stay. We are currently looking into the possibility of adding air conditioning units in our suites as we understand the road noise can be an issue. We’re happy to hear it didn’t deter you from considering staying with us again. We hope to see you in the near future!! Take good care, Nick and Danielle Junjak

My wife and I returned to the North Shore first week of November and stayed again at Gooseberry Park Cottages. This is our 3rd year and once again it was great! 2020 being what it is with the pandemic and cleanliness, there was one thing we knew for sure was that Gooseberry always had immaculate clean cabins. I travel a lot for work and never experienced the excellent cleaning services than I have at Gooseberry let alone a resort that has cabins. The owners, Kirsten and Ted have always taken great pride with the resort’s image to the beautiful grounds and their cleaning standards within the cabins. The North Shore and the lovely Great Lake Superior did not disappoint us. Beautiful hiking trails, & beautiful camp fires on the rocks or Superior makes this place our favorite place to spend our vacation three years in a row. Each year we stay longer and longer. 10 days this years and feels like home more and more. We stayed in Cabin # 3 and what a great cabin this is with perfect views of Lake Superior. Sleeping with the bedroom window open and hearing the lake through the night with the cool temperatures made sleeping perfect. Do yourself a favor and make sure to catch the sunrise in the morning with a hot cup of coffee. We did this down on the lakeshore as well as from our patio. Stunning views. The patio was nice to grill out on with a few drinks listening to the shore. Kirsten and Ted are really great and genuine people. They always had a smile and warm good morning/afternoon asking how our hikes were. We are already thinking about a winter trip to the North Shore and this is the only place we will stay.

Stayed in one of the townhouses. Very nice-cozy and super clean. Prior to arrival they let us know all the things they do to insure cleanliness in view of our Covid 19 issues. We felt comfortable in the environment. Kirsten and Ted are extremely nice and inviting people who welcome you to the place. Great views of the lake and felt "homey". Really a laid back place to stay to just relax, very peaceful. W3e are already planning on a return.

This is my favorite place to stay on the North Shore. I love the cottages, they are cute and extremely clean!! The Shore line is peaceful and spectacular! The stars this trip were incredible. I love that it is close to SHT and Two Harbors for needed groceries. Highly recommend!!!

I was lucky to book 3 nights at this property. Lucky because Gooseberry Cottages are always booked solid and I found out why. The property is so well maintained, comfortable, charming, safe, the owners are so welcoming and you can't beat the location! Right on the shores of Lake Superior offering spectacular sunrises and sunsets right from my cottage deck or the lake shore. I have now learned from the "regulars" that stay here to book well in advance. Already making my plans for 2021!
