We felt welcome here on a midweek visit. The couple that own the motel and are renovating it were friendly and accommodating, even building a fire in the fire pit though we were the only guests. We prefer small, owner-occupied places to chain motels, so this was perfect for us. It's set in a wooded area outside of town--there was...

We were on a bike trip from Thunder Bay to Duluth and got caught in a storm. The light was turned on as we were riding past the motel and even though they didn't have enough rooms to accommadate all 16 of us they made do with what we had. They even gave us a suite at regular room price...

Nice, very clean and comfortable. Great owners who only want to see you happy. Good location. Outdoor fire pit really adds that North Woods touch. Liked it there and would definitely stay again. Consider supporting this young couple as they make a go of this business.

We choose this property to stay at for our snowmobile trip. great access to the North Shore Trail System. We reserved the cabin, did not see the motel rooms. 2 adults & a dog. We were very happy with our cabin. Clean, warm & cozy. Lots of wild life on the property as well. The new owners are very friendly...

Darling tiny cabin right off hiway 61. Perfect for sleeping only! Frig is too small to hold milk and a bottle of coke. Friendly staff. Convenient location. I did not see the motel rooms. This is an older property being upgraded. Ask for Pandoras Box

We stayed here for two nights while we were exploring the North Shore Scenic Drive. It is a very small room and there was no sound proof: We could hear every conversation in the next room. The picture shown on the tripadvisor page is a wrong picture.

Very nice stay for a great price! Like others have said, it a 7 unit motel and a stand alone cottage. The room and grounds are very well kept, very comfortable. Some have said the bathrooms are small. Being 6' tall I found them to be just fine. The location worked out well for us. The room has a coffee...

A group of us decided we wanted to check out the ATV trail system around Tettegouche State Park. The Whispering Pines was the perfect place for us to stay. Room to park the pickups & trailers. Able to drive our ATVs right up close to our rooms. The rooms were clean and reasonably priced, though rustic. The deck and the...

We have stayed at Whispering Pines Motel on numerous occasions over the years. It's a nice, cozy, reasonably priced place to stay and a great location for exploring the North Shore of Lake Superior. Friendly owners, fun times around the campfire with other guests, just a stone's throw from Tettegouche State Park and Palisade Head.

My fiance surprised me with a trip to the north shore spontaneously one day. I was a bit skeptical at first because the place we were staying was listed as a "motel" and I'm used to staying in "fancier" places I guess. We ended up renting the Honeymoon Suite which was a cozy little private cabin, perfect for the two...
