Resort Description

Inspired by traditional Scandinavian fishing villages, our North Shore cottages are tucked away in 40 acres of private woods, south of Two Harbors, MN, with 1,300 feet of Lake Superior beachfront shoreline. Our finely crafted cottages have an exquisite interior design, highlighting the unique qualities of Lake Superior’s incredible shoreline.

At Larsmont Cottages, you are surrounded by opportunities to hike, bike, paddle, fish, ski, snowshoe, sled, and shop. Or just stay put and relax! You’ll find a heated indoor pool, an all-season outdoor whirlpool, and an authentic, wood-fired Finnish Sauna. Our lodge serves as the resort’s family room with a covered porch, blazing wood fireplace, full-service restaurant and bar, library and friendly spaces for large and small gatherings.

Resort Specialties (best known for)At Larsmont Cottages, we have adapted the previous camp ground lifestyle with our modern luxuries and conveniences. The “Camp Rules” include:

  • At LARSMONT COTTAGES ON LAKES SUPERIOR we leave our “city personas” and egos behind. It is allowed, and even encouraged, to act a bit juvenile.
  • Camp breakfasts are meant to be fun. We sit with others. Kids are allowed unescorted and are allowed to order pancakes of any make and persuasion – including our M&M and Skittles special.
  • At least once a summer, my kids will spot a falling star while lying on the ledge rock.
  • We will not watch TV while at the resort. We will play checkers, chess and backgammon.
  • Couples of all ages must sit in a pair of Adirondack chairs holding hands for at least 20 minutes a day (please send the kids to the lodge if they are bothering you).
  • At Larsmont, we will do wine and we will do it right.
