Spent 2 nights in Cabin 8. Very small, cozy cabin with all we needed. Nice, clean room with refrigerator and coffee pot. Not the best mattress but worked. Staff very friendly and helpful upon our arrival and full of lots of information for the area.

We stayed at a cabin at this lodge for three nights and enjoyed our time there. These cabins have been along the Cascade River for many years and a lot of them are log cabins. Ours had (#11) had a wooden bridge across the river you crossed to get to the cabin's front porch. It was a cosy cabin with... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our resort and Cabin 11--one of our most popular cabins. We appreciate all of your comments and will take some action on the rusty heater in the bath area this fall when things slow down. Our 4 (cabins 1,2,3,11) rustic pioneer log cabins are the only original structures still on our property from... More

My husband and I booked a spur of the moment trip to the North Shore over the July 4th weekend. Cascade Lodge was affordable and had a room available overlooking the lake. We stayed in #212 in the main lodge and it was just perfect for us. We weren't looking for top of the line, just a place to lay... More

We wanted to spend a couple days on the north shore of Lake Superior and couldn't have asked for a better stay. We stayed in Cabin 9 which has a view of the lake, as clean and comfortable and the staff made us feel more than welcome. Close to Grand Marais and other attractions. Had our Golden Retriever Lucy with... More

Old style lodge and cabins modernized for today's travelers. Spectacular location on Lake Superior keeps us coming back. Clean and comfortable rooms and restaurant located next door is remarkably clean. Meals and drinks are reasonably priced with specials everyday to make you come back and enjoy the food and view. Friendly owners and staff make you feel welcome as soon... More

We have stayed at Cascade Lodge twice. Once in a cabin and once in the "motel" unit. The positives are the location. It's awesome to leave your cabin and head right into the State Park to hike and see the beautiful falls and wildflowers. The main lodge is old school and a place to "try" and grab some wifi (which...

Thank you for your detailed review of our property. We really do enjoy our location and especially enjoy being completely surrounded by Cascade River State Park.

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.

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...
