Too good to be true? This was our first trip to Lutsen and we were hoping we would love it so much, it would become an annual winter trip for our family. A midweek ski/stay package seems like a great value, however, there are several downfalls not in the fine print as well as features at Bluefin that did not... More

We have been coming up to the bluefin for the last twelve years now. We love being on the North Shore. The Bluefin is a relaxing and I must say expensive place to stay. Unfortunately, the last time we stayed, we had a little bit of a problem....We checked in at 4PM, sometimes in the past the rooms haven't been... More

Thanks for your constructive comments. We sincerely apologize that the cleaning of your room was not well done during your visit last October. Bluefin Bay is located in Cook County, Minnesota, 92% which is public land including the BWCA, Superior National Forest and numerous State Parks. With only 8% private land Cook County has a population of only 4,500 people... More

We have stayed at bluefin a few times and have always enjoyed it. We decided to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary there. The room was nice and we had big plans to enjoy a dinner at the bluefin grille. Well that did not happen. My husband ordered their special of the night which was a new york strip steak and... More

I am very happy that you enjoyed our our resort, but very sorry that your anniversary dinner experience was not satisfactory. Our Chef introduced a new menu this Monday and I am afraid that our kitchen crew were too focused on preparing for that roll-out, at the expense of providing an enjoyable dining experience to you. I have asked our... More

My husband and I go to Blue usually at least once a year. The resort is great. Beautiful views of Lake Superior, excellent food and we are able to bring our dogs. The staff is always amazing. We also love the Coho Cafe. There is so much to do at the North Shore, but it is Also so relaxing. The... More

Blue Fin Bay is a family favorite with our young adult children and their significant others. Why do we keep going back? *Well maintained property and condo's that are well supplied and appointed. *Quality customer service and staff. *Comfortable bed and linens. *Ability to relax facing huge windows looking onto Lake Superior just steps away!

We stayed here for four nights. The outdoor hot tub was great even in February! The food is very good. I love all the close, convenient places to cross county ski. Amazing view, bonfires, and every game/amenity you can think of to keep kids happy.

After staying in December and not having the normal 'bluefin bay' experience that I have become accustomed too I wrote a less than favorable review. After this the general manager Michele reached out and invited us back. Michele truly cared about us as guests and went way out of her way to make everything perfect. This time we stayed our...

We stayed three nights in the grand master suite facing majestic Lake Superior (where the waves sound like ocean from inside your room) and loved every minute. The staff were completely attentive and knowledgeable about the area, and made us feel at ease the entire time. The wood fireplace along with the giant picture windows facing the lake created the...

We stayed in a two story, two bedroom townhouse. It is very well furnished and equipped (with the exception of the downstairs bedroom not having a bedside table). The views of the lake, especially at sunrise and sunset, are amazing. The kitchen has a full size refrigerator and everything you need to prepare meals. The living room has a fireplace,... More

Loved this hotel. The room was exactly what we expected and the hot tub after a whole day of skiing was great! The fact that they keep gear for different activities was great too, while we were there we went ice skating and enjoyed the campfire.
