We have stayed at four of the Lutsen area resorts. (Eagle Ridge, Lutsen Resort and Caribou Highlands) Each one seems to have their own specialties which make them unique. Blue Fin and Lutsen Resort are our favorites, with Caribou next and lastly Eagle Ridge. Bluefin's desk staff seem to have hospitality written all over them. They aim to please. The... More

ALL of Bluefins property are exceptional. Our favorites are Temperance Landing and Surfside. Their employees are super and Andrew the manager has been top notch whenever I've dealt with him My only beef is the price. Over July 4th, we stayed for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom and the cost.....a whopping 1330!! To put this in perspective our family... More

We stayed in a One Bedroom Condo (Unit 27) this past weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The unit we had was very cozy and well appointed, but we found that the bathroom is way too small and confined (with the angled wall for the bathroom door, there is basically no room for your legs between the toilet and bathroom...

We just returned from Bluefin where we stayed for 3 days. We were impressed with the beauty of the coastline, the wonderful activities and all the wonderful happy staff that were so helpful to us during our stay. We tried the kayaking, nightly campfires, biking and hiking, swimming and hot tub with great views. The food was outstanding and we... More

I guess the best testimonial I can give is that the day I return to the office after my annual stay at Bluefin, I change my calendar from "0 days" until my Happy Place" to "358 days until my Happy Place". Each year I check in to Bluefin so that I can check out of the hustle and bustle of... More

We chose this location fully randomly via a Google search of "resorts in Minnesota"! Wow, did we hit the jackpot! We stayed in a Grand Superior one bedroom condo on the first floor of the northern-most section. We had a full kitchen and a decent sized deck right onto the Lake. The site is split into a north and south... More

Stayed here with the wife as a part of a business seminar I was attending down the road in late June. Booked the room online and was very happy with the depth of the website in helping us understand what exactly we were getting for the price - the floor plans were a nice touch from the standard professionally staged...

My wife and I took my brother and his wife from North Carolina to Bluefin Bay to show them the best vacation destination in Minnesota....The North Shore. We were lucky enough to stay in a room overlooking the bay. The views and the weather were exceptional. My brother and his wife went kayaking and the staff and God somehow made... More

My 1st visit to Bluefin was in 2001. This was my 6th visit and the 4th in 4 years. We always get a unit with a kitchen as we like to make the majority of our own meals. This year was just the two of us but other times we've brought my kids. Even as teens, they love to come... More
