The resort is wonderful. A variety of cabins located along the shores of Lake Superior. Our cabin was right on the rock beach and along side a small creek that joined with the lake right in front of cabin. The view was amazing. We saw loons and seagulls daily right in front of the cabin. Ships were visible in the... More

My family and i have been coming to fenstads almost every summer I've been alive. I grew up here. I love everything about this place. It's right in the lake and you can go hiking on the trails to pick raspberries or hiking up the river to find pools of waters to swim in. My sister and I always had... More

We stayed a week in September 2012, a week in September 2013 and we leave Saturday September 20th for two weeks this year. If you can't find a little piece of heaven on earth here, you need to STAY in the city. And if you really need an air mattress and a microwave oh and OMG NO TV...Please just stay... More

We've been coming here off and on for 35 years, in the last dozen years in both July and September. Fabulous setting. Rustic housekeeping cabins are clean and comfortable, all with lake views. If you have to have a pool, wifi, tv...look elsewhere. We wouldn't go anywhere else. Owners are shy, not surly. Great location for exploring the north woods... More

Interesting mix of 17 cabins - some are vintage, some are modern. I happened to get a 50's model. Be sure you know which you are renting. No microwave. Otherwise kitchen is fine. Tiny bedrooms. All have a lake view. Rustic is a good description, maybe even worn around the edges. As for service - be prepared to be treated... More

The view here is great...you overlook Lake Superior...it is quiet. I am glad I packed the air mattress because the beds are really bad. I don't think they are a standard mattress, they are thin and there is no give at all when you lie down!...our cabin was called a 2 bedroom, but there were curtains on a rod to... More

This is probably the review that I am best qualified to write, as my family has been going to northern Minnesota for decades and most often staying at Fenstad's. Accommodations are really nice- this resort is a peaceful refuge, and walks around the property are really nice for adults or kids. As a kid we liked walking up the creek... More
