This is the most friendly, scenic and tranquil spot! Our first visit was in the autumn, with the colors at their peak. We can't say enough about the hospitality, convenience, beauty and service. Thank you, we have already made two future reservations. I will never forget kayaking over to the gourmet market to get a few heirloom tomatoes for my... More

Fourteen of us, from 6 months old to 88 years. Swimming, boating, fishing, anything that anyone could want to do on a lake is readily available and the staff is ready to help make it happen. There are special activities for children and even the fish seem to accommodate by biting almost as soon as a hook is dropped in... More

What a great experience! We were at Ludlow's to celebrate our 40th anniversary and it was just what we wanted. We did not stay on the island as the only one bedroom cottage is "Northshore" located on the North Shore of the mainland relative to the island. The area is not accessible by car so you still have the island... More

This place deserves all the praise they receive. Our family enjoyed our Northwoods adventure immensely. The cabin had every amenity. You know you have had a great vacation while as you travel home, you think about when you can return. The staff are top notch and any request was happily filled.

This was a last-minute trip before school started for the kids and we stayed in the Northside cabin. We had kids who ranged from 6 - 18 years old. We loved how each person was able to enjoy the resort from simply relaxing in a lakeside cabin to enjoying the activities the resort provided. We are planning to go back... More

I just returned from another great week up on Lake Vermilion and Ludlow's Island Resort. I started going up to Ludlow's in the 1980's when I was in college, and over the past several years have returned with my teenage kids and it is by far their most favorite place to vacation in North America!

I have been operating for 41 years and my son has now taken over. Just this week we have a guest who has returned after 25 years and another after 10 to let their... More

We enjoyed another great week on Ludlow's Island. Their helpful, friendly attitude and overall level of service is absolutely the best thing about staying there……well maybe it’s second to the sunsets, but it’s really good!
