Banning House is a beautiful, rustic inn (the town's only one) atop a small hill looking over Two Harbors. Rooms with views of either side of the tiny isthmus (or if you're lucky, both) are scattered along the property, around a main building which houses the kitchen (feel free to store food here for lunch and dinner), breakfast room, patio and great room, which feels a lot like another era, with deer mounted on the walls, board games and a giant working fireplace which the staff will light for you on chilly evenings. The rooms are lovely—there's a bit of a lodge/camp feel, but the beds are big and luxurious and gourmet cupcakes are there to greet you when you first check in. Breakfast is complimentary and served in a sunny, charming room overlooking town. It's just a quick, five minute walk to the main drag of Two Harbors from the hotel, but a complimentary shuttle will take you up and down the hill if you prefer.
