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

We have stayed at Cascade in the cabins twice in the summetime. The cabins are spacious and charmingly rustic. Easy access to the adjoining Cascade R. State Park, and across the road to the shore of Lake Superior. Not far from Grand Marais. The restaurant serves excellent food, with a very nice pub where the former gift shop used to... More

We supposed saved a lot of money by using a mid week 2 night special. What a joke. We got cabin 5 B which is stuck between two other cabins meaning no ventilation. The only windows - which were small - were in the front, gross and old. You can hear every noise anyone in any of the other attached... More

I am sorry you were not pleased with Motel unit (not a cabin) 5B. You rented through a deal site so we had no opportunity to offer you our wide variety of other options. You instead, chose our least expensive unit and never bothered to call or ask about it. We have discontinued offering deals through the site you rented... More

We stayed in cabin 8. A simple sleeping cabin with a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. We slept GREAT with the windows open! It was a great spot to be in near the Cascade River for a wonderful hike and a beautiful view of Lake Superior. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. The staff was so friendly and the... More

The owners bought the resort ten years ago and since that time put an extraordinary amount of work, renovation, love, and care surpassing most of the other lodges and motels on the north shore of Lake Superior. The property offers various updated cabins of various sizes and an area for BBQing and campfires as well as a play area for... More

We stayed in cabin 9 July 23/24 as a belated anniversary trip. The cabin was clean, quaint, and cozy with a queen bed and futon. We even had satellite TV for when we lounged around after the sun went down. The bed was a bit hard, especially for someone with a bad back, but we managed Ok. The weather was... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our property. I just wanted you to know that we should be hooked up to Broadband internet this fall and that will completely resolve our internet speed concerns for all of our guests. Of course, you can still disconnect, but now it will be a choice! Thanks again for your comments. Michael O'Phelan,... More
