Yes the owner is brash but he's a sweetheart. Like your grumpy old grandpa that's mad at the world. Ot deep down hes a good guy. Look beyond that and you get a cozy place to stay for a great deal. Tv works great and the heater keeps it nice and warm in here.

I was Leary staying here after my phone conversation and reading the reviews. I named him "Grumpy Man" but once we met him, I could see a sad man behind all his gruff. Just let his opinions slide because it's a fair price for a room on the Northshore and you only have to deal wit

I know it is expensive to find a place to stay, with a dog on the north shore.
We have stayed there before, never again. He just goes off over anything, just crazy.
I have never been treated like that, so crude. The mattress was old, no padding.
The carpeting had a large hard st

Hello, I see that your place is pet friendly. We have a 50lb golden retriever and want to make sure this is ok before we book. What else do we need to know? Thanks, Pete

We are staying there this weekend and have 2 of the 2 BR units with a kitchen. I'm just wondering if there is a coffee maker in the kitchen units. Thanks, Carol

Dear, Mr. Franz, I am sorry if I offended you by asking you for a discount two years ago. To explain, my wife and I had just hiked a bit and were looking for a deal. I should have known that $50 per night on the North Shore was a deal enough. I humbly hang my head with this apology and actually thought about sending you a card to explain how sorry we were are for offending you by asking for a discount on a Friday evening. My wife and I are thinking about coming to Silver Bay soon and I promise we'll try our best not to be any extra trouble for you if we decide to stay at your establishment. You didn't need our business then, but I hope you might accept it now as a token of our gratitude for all that you offer us tourists. Thanks again, Paul

"Clean and no-frills!!"
"Call early in the day to make your reservation, proprietor is nicer in the mornings."
"Call anyone else in the planet!!"
