We stayed in cabin 9. Very comfy. View of Lake Superior from our bed! There were deer grazing right outside our cabin! Sure, we would have liked a newer TV or better wifi but for the price, the view and the proximity to so many great spots, Cascade Lodge can't be beat. Don't miss the restaurant! Great burgers and wow... More

The location is close to Lutsen Mountain, where we wanted to go skiing. When we checked in on Sunday, the desk clerk said Lutsen would be open for 2 more weeks. We went to Lutsen on Monday in hopes of skiing, only to find out that it was closed for the season. VERY disappointed. We stayed in a "hotel" unit,... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I don't know when you asked about Lutsen Mountains ski hill but they are in fact open until Easter Sunday April 20th. I looked up your reservation and see that you arrived on a Sunday--you could have skied that day but midweek in April Lutsen is closed. I hope you... More

This location is REALLY ideal. Stayed here about a dozen times over the years. About as good of a location as you can find on the North Shore. Not too far away from 'civilization' and yet still close to a multitude of different vacation locations and activity options! GREAT as a "base-camp" for day trips. Scores of waterfalls and beautiful... More

We only wanted to check email once or twice a day, but the wi-fi was either not working, or they were "out of minutes", most of the four days we were there. The computer in the lobby didn't work either--and neither of the two attendants we talked to knew when or whether it would be fixed. The accommodations were just... More

I am sorry you were unhappy with our internet service. It is the best service available in our area but sometimes falls short of what people are used to. Thankfully, the Federal Government working with our local cooperative is in the process of installing broadband internet service for all of Cook County. At that point, there will be no limits...

We spent a terrific weekend at Cascade Lodge, wonderfully located between Lutsen and Grand Marais, across the street from Superior. The XC ski trails started a few hundred yards from our door, all beautifully groomed, through beautiful rolling hills and woods with some lake views. The staff were all helpful and friendly. In fact, one helped us out of a... More

Thank you for mentioning our vegetarian items in your recent review. We have been developing that portion of our menu for several years now with an emphasis on hand crafted (cooked from scratch) items that are both unique and tasty! I was happy to help with your car, it was really no problem, but thanks for mentioning it! Michael O'Phelan,... More

We found Cascade Lodge very comfortable and clean with friendly staff. We sent to x-c ski and snowshoe in February and their trails were excellent. Some trails were on state land and were part of the Superior Hiking Trail. We even were given a complimentary sleigh/hay ride through the woods under the stars at night. The Lodge, although old, is... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We always appreciate helpful feedback. The horse drawn sleigh ride has been very popular this year with all the snow we have had. Your comment about summer activities is right on the mark with daily summer activities from about mid June through Labor Day. Thanks again, Michael and Maureen O'Phelan,... More

We stayed mid-week in the lodge itself (room 202), which we were very pleased with. The room and the furnishings were very simple, and yes, the furniture was a bit outdated but it passed the white gloves test. Checking in went smoothly, and the entire staff is extremely helpful and friendly. We ventured downstairs into the game room, which is... More

Thanks for choosing Cascade Lodge to enjoy your winter getaway. Room 202 has been very popular since we remodeled it with the King Bed and sitting area. We live on site so we are very aware of how convenient it is to be surrounded by Cascade River State Park. A real bonus for us and our guests! Michael and Maureen... More

We had a great time! The staff were friendly and helpful. They gave great recommendations for where to go exploring. We ate at the restaurant and enjoyed ourselves. The cabin was very nice and had heated floors which was perfect for MN in December!

We came to know about this place via Groupon. As long as you remember it is a lodge in the woods and not your downtown hotel you will be fine. But that is what we were looking for and it worked out well. We stayed in the lodge and our 6 year old son enjoyed it thoroughly. The lodge is... More

This is our fourth stay at the lodge, we love that we can get there, park the car and spend the weekend. Skiing and snowshoeing is right off the property, the restaurant and pub are cosy, and with good food and deals. And the owners work the place and all of the staff do a good job. Keep in mind...
