Our family has been spending a week at Ludlow's every summer for the past 12 years. Its our version of "a cabin up north" and we all love it. We find that we shed the stress of regular life as soon as we turn off the highway, and are relaxed by the time the shuttle gets us to the island.... More

We stay at Ludlow's for a week every year and enjoy every moment. Lake Vermilion is magical and full of fish. The cabins are comfortable and well equipped. The boats and motors are always in great shape, and best of all, Ludlow's service is second to none. We have travelled the world and this is our favorite family spot.

Ludlow's Island is a fabulous family vacation spot. The staff is top notch and they make you feel like family. The secure island setting is great for younger kids as they can have a lot of freedom to roam around.

This was a fantastic getaway in which we stayed three nights with my parents and our three-year old son. There was SO much to see and do that we were really kicking ourselves for not staying an entire week. My parents were easily able to "pop in" for a day to enjoy the lake and playing with their grandson by... More

Absolutely delightful getaway. The owners and staff are outstanding. Lots of activities for children. Our grandchildren have grown up here. Fishing and water sports are excellent. We have coming to the resort for the past seven years.

My husband and I have traveled the world and Ludlow's is our favorite destination. They pamper their guests, providing world class service with an eye towards providing you privacy. The individual "cabins" feel like Northern Minnesota at its finest...fireplaces, (we choose a cabin with a large whirlpool), cozy bathrobes...all within a gorgeous setting. Lake Vermilion is spectacular. Feel free to... More

My wife and I recently visited for 3 nights and we had an amazing time! We stayed in the Dusk cabin and it was a beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath right on the water. We enjoyed fires in the fireplace at night while enjoying the sounds of the lake & loons. We also enjoyed using their sauna every night &... More

Having never been to northern Minnesota, I wasn't sure what to expect from Ludlow's Island Resort and Lake Vermillion. Both exceeded my expectations. I wanted to take my boys fishing but wanted to be sure there were plenty of other activities as well. Rain or shine, cold or hot, Ludlow's had it covered. There was at least one kid's activity...

As a longstanding customer/guest, you'll find the Ludlow's Island Resort an experience compelling as ever as it consistently delivers the highest level of service: unique clean cabins, each with all the amenities one could ask for. The quaintness of the Island which resides in one of the jewels of all MN lakes, offers a combination, in my opinion, that is... More
