We opted for the cheapest option allowing pets: the tri-unit motel tucked into rustic hillside Lovely setting with the sound of the trickling creek outside and Lake Superior waves crashing across the road. Extra heater and blanket came in handy even though it was only mid September. Dogs definitely welcome here. Outfitted with grills/fridges/microwaves for easy meals with healthy, tasty... More

Thank you for your excellent review of our property. We are so lucky to be surrounded by 5500 acre Cascade River State Park with all the trails coming right into our resort! It makes it nice to not have to drive to any particular trail head but rather just open your door and head out. We work hard at providing... More

We stayed two nights, the last nights of our honeymoon, and we enjoyed the experience immensely. Our room was on the second floor, a corner room with a beautiful view of the lake shore. The room was clean, the accommodations nice, the staff friendly. The inn is old, quaint, and made our stay romantic and memorable. We will definitely plan... More

Cascade Lodge was more then helpful and so very friendly!! We stayed in cabins 5A & 5B - they were small but very clean and had everything you needed. The staff was helpful when trying to pick out the best hiking trails and sent us on our way with a map of the trails - they were beautiful!! The food... More

We've driven by Cascade Lodge for years, but never stayed. This will be our new "go to" place on the north shore. The lodge was clean, comfortable and welcoming. Room was not fancy, but bed was comfortable, pillows great, clean and had everything we needed. We left our window open at night and fell asleep to the sound of the... More

I like this place a lot. I travel through twice each summer, with my dog, en route to Canada. Several of the cabins are pet friendly. The place, though "rustic", is super clean and very well kept. There are many hiking/walking trails, some very close. It is serene, beautiful and welcoming. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5... More

Thanks for your excellent review of our property. I especially appreciate you mentioning the restaurant and the Lake Superior access. It's one of the few places left on the North Shore with un impeded access to miles and miles of Lake Superior shoreline because we are surrounded by Cascade River State Park.

I stayed in the Lodge, nice big room with comfortable beds. There is a restaurant/bar next door which was very convenient. There are many trails around, and lots to do! Sitting outside under the stars was just beautiful! Can't wait to go back! Wi-fi in the lobby.

Stayed in room 103. It was comfortable. Loved sitting on the porch, lake beautiful. But we did not know there was road construction. Down to one lane, hard to get in & out. Also noisy. Bartender at bar was very friendly & helpful. Did not eat at restaurant though.

Thank you for your review of our property. MNDOT has been installing new culverts along Highway 61 this summer and resurfacing about 6 miles of the road between Onion River Road and Cascade River State Park. We did post this on our website the minute we knew when they would be here. Please appreciate that this is the first major... More

Stayed in lodge. Accommodations were dated. Very friendly and helpful staff. Wifi was marginal at best. Great restaurant on site with good food and VERY reasonable prices. They also have cabins to rent but we never viewed them. Good central location for all activities (hiking, kayak, golf, etc.). Lodge is not on Lake Superior, but right across the road. No... More

Thank you for your review of our property. Many of our rooms have been updated, others are in process. You must have stayed in one of the "in process" rooms. In any event, we just wanted to let you know that there is a beautiful combination of cobblestone beach intermixed with ledge-rock shoreline that is directly accessible from our resort... More

I spent a weekend (usually Labor Day weekend) every year growing up going to Cascade Lodge. That was pre-internet, so we just booked it for the next year before we left. Last summer when my husband and I needed an anniversary trip destination, I couldn't stop myself from booking a cabin at Cascade. We were in Cabin 9, June of... More

Our entire staff really loved your review! And we appreciate that you noticed we remodeled Cabin 9's bathroom. We also added a plumbing device to prevent the toilet from sweating on our new tile floor. While many have panicked at the thought of not having cel service most have had the same experience as you have--a great one! We would... More
