Just returned from four nights in a cabin in Isle Royale NP. Cabin is roomy, clean and well equipped. Furnishings are not exactly comfortable but adequate and to be expected in a park setting. From our cabin (201) we could walk out to several beautiful trails for day hikes or down the hill to the water for canoeing. Night sky... More

Loved the Rock Harbor Lodge. Our room had a super view of Lake Superior. The room was large with 2 queen beds. Kept the windows open at night to listen Lake Superior water lapping up on the beach. How very peaceful. Plenty of hot water. The 3 night package we bought was perfect. Included ferry ride over, all meals(anything on... More

Very nicely located among pristine nature on the shoreline. All rooms are lakeview and allow observing birds, including loons. Our room was on the second floor and had a nicer view than the first floor rooms; however, first floor rooms have an additional porch-like sitting area. The room was spacious and very clean. No breakfast was included, but the nearby... More

We traversed Isle Royale and at the end we treated ourselves to one night at the lodge. The room was comfortable and clean with a spectacular view of Lake Superior from a porch that was part of the room. When we were meant to leave, bad weather prevented us from taking the sea plane as we had arranged. The staff... More

My husband and I spent 3 fabulous nights here. Yes it is expensive - but so are most National Park hotels. This is an island, where everything has to be shipped in and out, including your garbage. The views are fabulous, and if your room is on the first floor it will have a balcony where you can sit and... More

We had quite the adventure on Isle Royale. We planned to be there for two nights as its all we could afford, but got stranded on the island when the Copper Harbor boat was damaged and out of service for a week. The cottage was a perfect space for the family, one main bed (small and dated) and two bunks... More

Although there is camping and cabins available on the island, we opted to stay at the lodge. Each room can accommodate four people and offers a private bath. We stayed in Room 2. The room is located on the second floor on the end of one of four lodges so there was potential for noise coming from only one neighbor.... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a housekeeping cottage. The kitchenette was well stocked with a micro, range top, toaster, coffee maker, pots/pans and everything that you need to eat and serve a meal. We had a view of Lake Superior that was breath taking! Keep in mind that this is a remote spot - Isle Royale National Park -... More

Tired from a final leg if our backpacking trip, soaked from rain, and finding all the sheltered camping options taken and crowded, my wonderful husband rented a housekeeping cabin for our last night on Isle Royale. It was wonderful. The cabins are spacious and quiet. The staff were great. It made our last day relaxing. I would plan this extra... More

I initially wrote my review under "Rock Harbor" as this didn't come up. Anyway, even though Isle Royale was boring and not as scenic as we had hoped, Rock Harbor Lodge was quite lovely. We had a very nice room with a walk out patio, overlooking Lake Superior. No towels in the room, but we soon fixed that, and the... More
