A fabulous property. Centrally located for exploring the north shore. Great rooms, everyone with an amazing view of the big lake. The local Cafe has a great breakfast and will make packed lunches of you are going hiking. Free smore's around the beach fire in the evening are a family favorite.

There are so many reason to love Bluefin. It's beautiful, the food, the activities, the access to the bets of the North shore from Tettegouche, Split Rock, up to Grand Marias. You name and it is great. We love the view out on to the lake. Our kids (girls 8 & 10) think throwing rocks in to superior is the... More

Bluefin Bay in Tofte MN was a delightful place to enjoy our 35th Honeymoon. The location was just gorgeous, and we were blessed with delightful weather during our stay. The room was exactly as described or even better, perhaps. We dined several times in the Bluefin Grille, and met the most welcoming and excellent wait-staff. The food was delicious and... More

We stayed at Temperance Landing in Tofte for the 1st time. Check in at Surf Side to get keys to our rental property was a breeze and very pleasant. Accomodations were 5 star. We stayed in a 3-bed, 3-bath log cabin approximately 3000 square feet. Upscale appliances, very clean, with a connected deck on Lake Superior. The views were spectacular.... More

Our sixth stay at Bluefin Bay's family of Resorts. We plan to keep going back every year. We love the atmosphere on Lake Superior. The resorts are all very clean, rooms are spacious, full of activities for kids and adults. The food is great at the resort restaurants. My favorite place to relax! We came in at the end of... More

We have returned to Bluefin Bay for many years. We enjoy the spring because the weather is crisp and perfect for hiking. No bugs in the spring. If it rains, just enjoy the view with a good book and a fire. The restaurants on site are all good. We do some cooking in the unit and also visit the restaurants.... More

We've just returned from a family reunion at Bluefin Bay, and our visit far exceeded our expectations. The views were spectacular, the accommodations were spacious and pristine, and the hotel staff were gracious and efficient. The younger members of our family enjoyed the campfire (with free s'mores), and we all enjoyed the free recreational equipment (tennis equipment, bikes). The WiFi... More

Great place to get away from everyday life. Right on Lake Superior, so great views and sounds of nature. Staff is friendly and so helpful. This was a returning trip for us and it was extra special because we got married! Jeremy the event coordinator was so helpful, the location of ceremony was perfect, the food was amazing, staff was...

We rented a one bedroom townhome with a view of Lake Superior. The view was just lovely and the place was big enough for us. They are not made to be soundproof so we would hear the plumbing above us. But if that doesn't bother you, I would rent this place. We slept well and sound did not distract us... More

We just returned from another Bluefin Bay vacation and always we wonder why we don't get there more often. Spectacular natural beauty surrounds and the lake is so close it lulls us into quiet reflection and relaxation. Days can be filled with hiking, biking, fishing, skiing, kayaking, canoing and at the end of the day a whirlpool and then quietly... More
