This lodge from (must be) the 1930s has basic but very clean rooms with stunning views of Lake Superior (right across the road!). The staff are very responsive to any request and the rates are very reasonable. My knit/ski group has stayed here (some in lodge rooms, others in cabins) three years in a row and we love it more...

My husband and I stayed in cabin 3 for a week in January, 2016. It is a "rustic pioneer cabin" - log cabin with wood burning stove. The cabin itself was clean, warm, and spacious for all of our things including cross-country gear. I've read a couple reviews saying the cabins may be a little outdated, but for us, it... More

This was my first visit to Cascade Lodge. We stayed in cabin 7. I was pleasantly surprised at how clean and cozy the cabin was, especially that initial scent when you walk in. It was lovely. The view of Lake Superior was right out of our living room window. These units are extremely well maintained, clean and inviting. The kitchen... More

I make a point each fall visiting to enjoy the leaves,lake and good fun at the lodge. Music in the bar and good food. Hiking the trails and looking at waterfalls. I rent a cabin to enjoy a fire in the wood stove and the nice surroundings.

My wife and I spent the weekend at Cascade Lodge as a cross country ski getaway. We rented Cabin 7 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We purchased the wine and dine package along with our stay which gave us two breakfasts and a dinner at the restaurant located on the premises. That turned out to be quite the deal as... More

Thanks for your review and being willing to take the short drive into Grand Marais to enjoy those trails. We generally have excellent conditions and some of the best trails on the North Shore, however we experienced a severe ice storm this early winter and had a lot of downed trees and brush covering the trails. The entire area had... More

Stayed here for three nights, was a fantastic trip! Love the cabins, the view of Lake Superior and the restaurant. The cabins are well equiped with all the necessities, all you really have to bring are yourselves and your food! The grounds are very nice, very clean and well maintained. I just received a notice from the property manager that... More

What a delightful surprise to find an exceptionally clean, quiet and cozy cabin in this price range. We spent the Thanksgiving holiday walking on trails right from the cabin, watching the lake from our cabin window and playing Scrabble in the classic setting of the landmark lodge in the evening. Satellite tv, microwave and frig in the room together with... More

Stayed in Suite 104 in the lodge. Big windows with a view of Lake Superior. Nice wood burning fireplace & huge whirlpool in the bathroom. Very comfortable room. Great hosts, friendly & helpful. Game room in the basement looked promising if coming w/ kids or more people. Late breakfast @ their restaurant next door was great! Would definitely go again!

We had a very nice stay in the Lodge. We have stayed here in the past. The weather for November was exceptionally warm while we were there, so we were able to hike around the Cascade Falls as well. Hiking in the fall, cross country skiing, & downhill skiing at Lutsen if you like the outdoors this is a great... More

We've stayed at the Cascade Lodge several times over the years with my family, but this was my first time hiking in the US for a couple of days solo. I purposely chose the room that I did (room "Motel 5B") because the price can't be beat (for my specific room, at the specific time of the year that I... More
