Seagull Bay FAQ's

We have gathered together some FAQ's just for you:

How close are you to the lake?

Lake Superior is right out of our backyard. Seagull Bay property runs right unto the Brownstone Trail, and the other side of the trail is the lake. Although you are unable to access the water from the motel, the nearest beach is just on the south side of town, and you can practically see it from the motel.

How close are you to town?

10-15 minute walk on the Brownstone Trail that is right out our front door. If you choose to take your car to town its about a 1- 2-minute drive.

What other amenities are in the room?

Coffee pot + coffee for all of our guests! Microwave and small refrigerator, so you can take your leftovers from your new favorite restaurant home. Plus, keep your favorite beverages chilled to sip and enjoy the views.

Bed size?

We offer almost all queen size beds, a few full size and twins added into the mix to bring your family or friends along for your travels. For full details, check out our sizing of rooms, and sleeping quarters online.

Timing for check-in & checkout?

Check-in is between 3 pm and 6 pm. If you are arriving later then at 6 pm, please let us know so we can make arrangements to provide you with a room key. Check-out is 10 am. With prior notice, we can accommodate some late checkouts. Late checkouts cost $25 per hour. Please submit these requests the night before.

Additional off-street parking is available on nearby streets, but please respect the neighboring businesses and do not park in their parking lots or your vehicle may be towed. Seagull Bay Motel is not responsible for damage or loss of property in parked cars, regardless of location.
