We stayed in room 210. It was 'compact' but with all the amenities we needed. The view of the lake was fantastic and we kept the windows open all night. You will want to keep the windows open as much as possible as the room was constantly too warm, heat was off and no A/C. The bed was very comfortable... More

We stayed in cabin #6 and loved it. It was the perfect size and had everything we needed for our stay. We loved the trails from the State Park right behind the property. The restaurant was very good and a nice close option for meals while relaxing. All staff members were helpful and accommodating. This isn't a big fancy place,... More

We stayed in a cabin in April. We ate at the restaurant, delicious. Had a fire in the fireplace, which was very relaxing. This place is in a great location, you can easily walk over to the State Park or drive up the scenic highway to Grand Marias. The beds were comfortable, the towels were soft, the water pressure was... More

We actually got a deal on from a coupon on our stay. But We would return paying full price. What a peacfull up north experience. The river running through the property was tranquil. Walking paths and water falls are wonderful sites. Comfortable and quiet. The staff were so sweet and welcoming. Looking forward to returning.

We took the whole family for one night in Cabin 9 as a midsummer getaway. The space was nothing fancy, but just what we needed and provided a great respite from the rain. The playground just down from the cabin was great for our 2 and 4 year old, and the easy access to food in the restaurant was appreciated!... More

My husband and I honeymooned here, and have returned every anniversary since. The surrounding beauty and outdoor activities are boundless, but the cabins are so cozy sometimes we never left the fireside. Many of the cabins have their own kitchen or kitchenette so we could cook romantic meals. The icing on the cake was our doggy daughter could stay with... More

My husband & I needed some time away from life's everyday stresses. We needed tranquility. We got it! The lodge is nothing fancy...we didn't need fancy. It is cozy and home-like. The cabin had all we needed; peace & quiet and a comfortable bed. The scenery surrounding Lake Superior is breathtaking! We enjoyed every moment!! Friendly staff! Thank you. Hope... More

The cabins at Cascade Lodge are so warm and familiar, they're like going home. I generally try to rent Cabin 1 or Cabin 2 -- both have a fireplace, front porch, living room, bedroom, dining table with microwave/coffee pot/mini fridge, and bath. The Lodge is right across Hwy. 61 from Lake Superior, and the Cascade River runs through the property.... More

My wife and I have made Cascade Lodge an annual trip along the shores of Lake Superior. The location is nine miles south of Grand Marais with an incredible view of the lake, Next door is the restaurant which has fantastic food and even better happy hour prices. The owners are engaged and love to converse with all visitors. We... More

My husband and I got married at cascade lodge on june 6th 2015 surrounded by our close family and friends. We had two dinners in the restaurant and had our ceremony in their outdoor chapel. It was incredible. The staff was so sweet and accommodating. Everyone in our family had a great time. We will be returning in the fall!
