We had a very nice experience and will definitely go back. While my tweens were up in the room with TV on, I enjoyed two peaceful evenings reading a book by the cozy communal fireplace which was kept roaring by the front desk person. The restaurant next door serves a fantastic breakfast. My only complaints are little things which don't... More

We stayed in the motel (5A gives you a perfect view of the lake from your windows) & would stay here again. The desk staff were very nice & took care of any concerns we had immediately. The room was very clean & kept clean during our 4 nights there. You can borrow games from the lodge which was nice... More

Had another very nice stay at the lodge. Love the historic atmosphere of the building. Great place to relax and enjoy the rocking chair by the fireplace. Comfortable rooms. Staff were very nice and helpful. Having the restaurant close by is a real plus after a long drive.Excellent food and staff. Always enjoy our stay .

We had another wonderful stay at Cascade! It is clean, reasonably priced, and a perfect location for hiking or visiting Grand Marais. Evenings in the community room next to the fireplace playing board games is the perfect finish to a day being outside. Love the cafe/pub next door, food and service is great, good variety on the menu. This place... More

Had a nice stay at Cascade. Room was comfy and clean. The staff was very helpful in helping find good local hiking trails. Close and convenient to both Lutsen and Grand Marais. Food at the Cascade Cafe was excellent as well. We will be going back!!!

Came to see the fall colors (which just aren't happening) and stayed one night in a small cabin at Cascade. The bed was so hard my husband couldn't sleep. The furniture was hand-me-down grandma style and even though it was clean, it just wasn't worth the price. The lodge had very few games aside from checkers and the decor was... More

I am sorry you did not find our resort up to your expectations. We did purchase chair covers to extend the life of our comfortable great room chairs (we thought it was a great idea and most guests agree). I would like to mention that based on your comment we did purchase 15 new game sets last week so we... More

My hiking friend and I spent four comfortable nights at Cascade Lodge on a golfing and hiking package. The Superior National Golf Course rate included a cart and was very reasonable. We were shuttled two days to our hike starting points at the time that we wanted - very flexible. Our room was large and the beds were comfortable. The... More

We stayed at Cascade for our 20th Anniversary. It was adorable. Clean, well kept up, friendly staff. They built a fire each night. Offer free coffee, board games and WiFi in the lodge. We did have a minimal "snafu' with our reservation but they made up for it with a free breakfast overlooking Lake Superior. We plan to go back... More

It was the first time that the family all went to Cascade Lodge since the passing of my Mother in May of this year. We enjoyed the stay very much. There is plenty to do for all ages no matter what the weather brings. We rented the Creek Chalet and one hotel room. We played games, went for walks, walked... More
