The lodge was lovely. Piano, games, complementary granola bars and tea downstairs. Very clean throughout. A great trail leading up the ridgeline. A spot for campfires if that's your thing. We stayed in 201 which says forest view but is on the corner so has the lake view on one side and trees/cabins on the other. Windows open in which... More

We recently stayed at Cascade Lodge for 4 nights and had a fantastic time. Our cabin was clean and had everything we needed. There were cross country skiing and hiking trails right outside the lodge and beautiful views of Lake Superior. The staff were exceptionally friendly and informative. The restaurant had good food and great beers on tap. I would... More

We went up the North Shore a couple years ago and booked the smallest cabin available for us and the dogs. The Cascades has a larger lodge with a game area in the basement, nice lobby, and many larger cabins, some hard on the little Cascade creek. In the winter, the cross country trails are wonderful, and part of the... More

We came he for get away weekend with some friends. We were last here about 30 years ago. Please remember this is a older lodge, not a 4 star Hotel. But a long as you know what you are getting you will not be disappointed. We stayed in the lodge and not the cabins. The rooms are small, but very... More

Cabins are rustic/have character, but certainly could use some modern updating. None of the outlets worked, cords were all over, the outside door wouldn't close, the floor/foundation was not level, heating was marginal/inconsistent to regulate. Wood burning fireplace fun to use, but not for heat source.

Thanks for spending your spring break at Cascade Lodge and taking the time to review our cabins. It took a bit to figure out which cabin you stayed in but I figured out you stayed in one of our Pioneer Rustic Cabins--Cabin 3 to be exact. It features a Franklin fireplace and is nearly 90 years old and does indeed... More

This establishment is quaint, elegantly rustic and true to the traditional historic lodging options available to travelers for the majority of the 20th Century, and now into the 21st.. Constructed in the 1930's, it has been well preserved as an historic inn as well as individual cabins. Updates have been done as necessary to maintain a fully functional and inviting... More

Friendly, quaint, nice location, fantastic restaurant a few steps away-great food, beautiful lodge- cold outside, nice warm fire going in the main lodge, trails are literally out in the backyard. Nice view of Lake Superior from our cabin window. Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, hiking- Cascade Falls(Cascade State Park) are a short walk from cabin. Cant wait to come back!... More

The North Shore of Minnesota is a rugged landscape of rocks, forest, and the vast Lake Superior. If it's your desire to experience this location in its primeval form without the fancy frou-frou of other resorts that cater to an altogether crowd, then Cascade Lodge might be just the place for you. The rooms are clean, beds are good, the... More

My wife and I loved ever minute we were there. The scenery was outstanding and the lodge charming. We would highly recommend for those looking for a charming nostalgic inn. If you like modern trendy places the Cascade will not be for you.

Our knitting group (20+ women) had a blast spending a long winter weekend here. Besides cozy inside spaces, lots of outdoor options for those who wanted to enjoy the snow and beautiful scenery of Cascade State Park and Lutsen ski area. Great service, perfect space for our needs, and reasonable prices.
