Two Words: Go There! Yes it cost some money but it's worth every penny. There is so much to do and see or... you can just relax by the lake. in fact it's hard not to relax when you're there. Check out their website for more info. BTW this place is great in the winter. Lutsen is just down the... More

We were going to be in the area for 3 days so we booked the best room…the honeymoon suite. The view was incredible and sleeping with the windows open while listening to Lake Superior lap the rocky coast was wonderful. We ate at the Cafe, and my husband took advantage of their fishing trip. Our room was clean, the staff... More

Our family of four stayed in a two bedroom with a loft. The room was nice and the kids enjoyed playing in the loft. The Jacuzzi tub was not operative. The resort has a wonderful outdoor pool and they also coordinate activities like s'mores on the beach and crafts for the kids. The staff was responsive when we asked for... More

This is a great hotel/resort in a stunning location. There are many outdoor activities that you can take part in right through the hotel. The service was excellent and the staff was friendly and helpful. I would absolutely return again.

My wife and I stayed for two nights in an aging lakeview whirlpool suite. I had much higher hopes, but check-in was lengthy and disorganized. The rooms themselves, furnishings, and bathrooms are really dated and while the view cannot be beat, for the price we paid ($300 per night) we would have expected things to be better kept. Otherwise it... More

All have received new beds, carpet and furniture during the past three years. Refurbishing of the whirlpools, bathrooms, showers, wet bars and fireplaces are the next steps.

This is second trip to the Bluefin this year. It's right in the middle of of so many things to do and see on the North Shore. Spend some time on the web site picking your condo because they do vary and very one of them face Lake Superior. Waking up to the sound of the waves and the huge... More

We had a very short amount of time for a trip therefore we thought Bluefin Bay would be perfect. It's close enough to the twin cities to drive up in the morning, enjoy Duluth and stay a few nights. We didn't have much time and wanted to be very active during our stay. We signed up for the 12-2 hike... More

This was our family's first time on the North Shore of Lake Superior and we could not have asked for a better experience. We had lots of fun stopping at all the sights and parks on the way up to Tofte but once we walked in to our unit at Bluefin Bay we were blown away by the view. We... More

My husband, two of my sisters, and I decided to stay here on the recommendation of a third sister. We loved it. The unit was plenty big, the kitchen well equipped, and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. One sister in particular thought the beds too soft, but that was the only complaint. I would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed most aspects of our stay at Bluefin Bay. The staff and service was great. However, the one complaint we had, was each bedroom has a large window high up that has no curtain/shade/anything covering it. With the master bedrooms all facing the Lake (East), our room started to get light around 4 am and was extremely bright with... More
