This is a great reason to take the beautiful, scenic boat ride up to the dam. The property is nice and the bar food and beers were great. They had full menu but we were just stopping for a casual snack and a couple beers. The stroll from the dock up to the property was a nice safe nature walk.

Nestled in the heart of Voyageurs is this rustic property. For one star prices you can have one of 12 rooms with shared bathrooms (plenty), no appliances, yet clean and friendly. Rick, the owner, may be one of the few honest men around. Bar ($5 drinks), restaurant (not great yet not pricy), gift shop, and as I understand, great fishing.... More

Falls were interesting but not worth a long boat ride if it is out of your way. So much other beauty in Voyageurs. Stopped for a very average pub-fare type lunch. Service was very slow but I think they were overwhelmed by an unexpectedly busy day. I actually had to go hunt down a waitress to get service. We sat... More

We stopped at Kettle Falls Hotel for lunch during a 6-hour boat ride in Voyageurs Nat'l Park. This quaint hotel/restaurant/bar serves food (mostly pizza & sandwiches - pretty tasty). The bar area has a very slanted floor with a 'leveled' pool table. You can drink/eat in the screened porch if you want. The hotel is near the 'Falls dam'. Half... More

I want to preface this review by stating that we were expecting a different kind of experience. We expected a quiet, peaceful getaway. Not party central. I will add that the three of the four criteria that we use to rate all motel/hotels 1) Is the property and room clean. 2) Does the shower work well, 3) Can we get... More

We were on our way to Kettle Falls for a day trip from Kabetogama and even though we had packed a lunch, we decided to stop into the restaurant for a bite to eat. The food was good with simple pizzas, a walleye hoagie, and a plain green salad with a wild rice soup. Service was friendly and prompt. Indoors... More

If you love and understand the National Park experience and it's amazing hotels, you will love it here! Our experience was staying in one of the villas. Getting to the hotel was an experience....we were met at the visitor center and taken there by boat. They will help you with all your gear and supplies. We had quite a bit... More

A very nice old charm hotel in middle of Voyageurs National Park. From architecture to ambience to hotel rooms all are in perfect sync and so different from todays mainland big cities that you will fall into love with this gem in this island! Do try their Wild Rice Soup, our NPS Ranger guide suggested that and we loved that.... More

We took the boat tour from the Kabetogama (try to say that one!) National Park Visitor Center to Kettle Falls Hotel. It is a 5.5 hour tour, and quite wonderful. The Park Rangers did a terrific job of narrating and we were able to see at least 12 juvenile and adult eagles and their nests. Also loon and their babies... More

Stayed here in July. Nice staff, good food, but needs a good cleaning. Rooms share a bath and none were cleaned during our stay. Neither was our room or any on our floor. Nice boat ride from the national park dock to the hotel's dock. You can see Kettle falls from the hotel.
