Superior Views

A “Superior” Bonfire on the Lake shore.

S’more kisses, please!

Photogenic ships and the lift bridge.

After we checked out of the Tree Houses, we checked in to the Inn of Lake Superior in Canal Park. This is one of our favorite Minnesota hotels. Every time we stay here, we know that there is a consistent level of expectations and comfort. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. The lake view rooms not only have a great view where the vibe of Canal Park seeps into your room, but they are spacious. There are two pools on site: one indoor and one roof top pool that is kept at 102-degrees. You can even swim on the roof top in the Winter, just as long as the temperature doesn’t dip below 0. Every evening at 8p.m., the hotel staff invites everyone to a bonfire where all the gooey-delicious ingredients to create your own s’mores can be found. Upon waking up, you can meander down the hallway to the hotels self-proclaimed, “Breakfast of Champions” (complimentary as a guest). Simply park your car and say goodbye to your keys, as the best way to get around in Canal Park is with your own two feet. Visit the Marine museum, greet vessels as they come to port, take a bike ride (another complimentary feature of the Inn), a carriage ride, shop in some cute eclectic shops, or dine at some of the tastiest places to eat around. Speaking of which, for the first time, we went to Hell Burgers. Amazing! I feel in love with their “Rachel” and I’ve made it three times since…Is that bad? Oh the sauerkraut, pumpernickel bread, turkey….Yum-O. Ashish had the veggie version of the hot and spicy jalapeno burger. Nishad had the veggie cheese burger and Tiger dined on pasta. Yes, pasta. If you visit Duluth, stop in the Inn and Hells Kitchen and tell them Beverly sent you. 🙂
