Island View Resort and Lake Superior Cabins

Island View Resort is a truly American experience. Whether you are a first time guest or you have stayed with us before you are sure to be amazed. Island View Resort has been our family business for over 90 years and about 90% of our guests return almost every year. Our family atmosphere is contagious. Our North Shore cabins conveniently overlook Lake Superior. We are located 12 miles from Duluth and within "day trips" of all the State Parks and visiting sites along the north shore of Lake Superior and the Boundary Waters of northern Minnesota. Some of our guests come to Island View Resort just to relax. You can sit on the deck and have some cheese and crackers and watch the ore boats pass by or just read a book. Maybe you want to walk down to one of the best agate beaches on the north shore of Lake Superior or you might want to spend some time at our firepit overlooking Lake Superior and the gorgeous night skies. Come visit------you will be back.

Happy Camper

Had an amazing time at the resort this weekend! I will definitely be back. You were very accommodating. The cabins were beautiful with a spectacular view! I will be back to cabin 3! Saturday morning I was up early enough to see the sunrise over Superior-What an amazing way to start a day. So blessed. Thank you again!

Excellent place to stay and visit!

We stayed in Cabin 9 and the cabin was perfect. We had 6 of us, my wife and I and our four kids. The Owners were so kind and very accommodating. We were close to everything we wanted to do and when we wanted to come back to the cabin and relax this was a perfect place to do that.

Adorable, clean cabins. Convenient location.

This was my second stay at Island View resort this year. The cabins are clean, which is very important to me. They are just rustic enough to be adorable. The owners are super nice and everything is very relaxed and easy going. The cabins have everything you need, just bring yourself and food! The location is nice, about halfway between Duluth and popular sites on the North Shore. Highly recommend!


Excellent place to stay.

We stayed in cabin 2, it’s a nice little 2 bed cabin with all the stuff you need to make meals and shower. Bob is super nice and gets you set up to have a fire every night. My daughters and I loved it. Waking up to the sounds of the lake in the morning is also a nice addition to staying there. We will definitely be back.

Grandmas marathon stay and vacation

Words can not describe how amazing this place is! The hospitality is top notch. I love the quiet setting and slept better here than at home. Close enough to many of the great North Shore sites. Definitely be back again!
