On a recent trip up the North Shore of Lake Superior, my wife and I spent 3 nights at Bluefin Bay Resort. The management was extremely helpful and accommodating and the condo we were offered, #7, has got to be the best in the facility. The deck outside our living room was literally 12 feet from the water's edge. The... More

For many years I thought Bluefin Bay was the elite place to stay. We decided it was a good place to stop on our way up the north shore, based on location and Trip Advisor reviews. We were a bit disappointed. The only room which seemed appropriate and was available for our one night was a studio unit. The view... More

We shared a three bedroom elite condominium unit just a few feet from the rocky shore of Lake Superior. Our lake facing patio was quite private and it was a great spot for morning coffee and moonlit cocktails. We were fortunate to enjoy fabulous fall weather and spectacular fall colors. Our unit was very nice and well appointed. We found... More

My husband and I went to Bluefin Bay Resort for our honeymoon and loved it so much we have already booked the same room for our 1st anniversary. The customer service was excellent and what we loved was that they were as hands on or hands off as you preferred. We opted for more hands off so it had the... More

We have dined here from time to time over the years and this was one of our best experiences. We both had delicious soup and tasty fresh fish sandwiches. They were busy but service was cordial and attentive.

Nicely appointed one bedroom efficiency on the bottom floor of their town house unit. Our sliding door opened directly onto Lake Superior. Spent a couple of delightful days drinking coffee (in the mornings) and sipping wine (in the evenings) taking in the spectacular views. We loved our nights, cracking the window and hearing the crash of the waves, while we... More

This is the third trip to Bluefin Bay for my husband and I and this time we brought my mother-in-law. She loves to travel but didn't get much of a chance when she was younger. She's 81 and we wanted her to experience the beauty of Lake Superior and there's no better place to stay than Bluefin Bay. We loved... More

While shopping at a canoe outfitter near Bluefin I heard a customer as the owner if there was a place to buy stamps and post a letter on Sunday, to which she answered "No...this is Tofte!" The North Shore of Lake Superior is a unique and isolated place and with some very unique accommodations. For all around service, rooms, location... More

A lovely place right on the Bay, with a comfortable bed and well laid out suite with a good kitchen. Incredible view out of the window when a storm arose on the Bay. The outdoor pool was lovely . The Coho cafe next door is the best place to get coffee,lunch or dinner. It is a real gem.

Way overpriced, bedroom was super small and in the rear of the room, no view, never opened blinds as it looked onto parking lot, was a tree out there as a stump was visible, but long gone. They used too much space on a kitchen and dining area. What two people in a room use that on vacation? Just came... More
