LEARN ABOUT MINNESOTA'S GEMSTONE
Thomsonite Inn is unique in that it sits on a section of Lake Superior’s shoreline that features “Minnesota’s Gemstone”, Thomsonite. Thomsonite is a rare mineral which was first discovered on the North Shore in 1879.
During the turn of the century, Hans Bernard Larsen, a Norwegian immigrant who came to Grand Marais in 1888, sold Thomsonite in a summer tent along Good Harbor Bay. By 1924, the American Exploration Company owned much of the Thomsonite laden property.
"Thomsonite is SO cozy. We loved our stay so much. Use of the grills and firepit made it seem like a fun community with other guests."
