I just visited Bluefin Bay for the first time. It is in the most beautiful setting! Our large condo overlooked the lake. There were large windows everywhere to enjoy the stunning views. The jacuzzi tubs were positioned to see the lake. The condo was warm, inviting and super clean. I want to live here!!! We ate onsite and the food... More

My boyfriend & I took our first trip together here a few weeks back (Oct 27th-31st)! It was my very first time to the North Shore ever, and wow what a site it is! We stayed in a 1 Bedroom Condo because we wanted a furnished kitchen to do our own cooking during our stay and we were so happy... More

We stayed for about our thirtieth time in twenty six years. Once again Bluefin was great. The front desk bent over backwards to help. It is not inexpensive and rivals the cost of Florida ocean front condos, but Bluefin is such a family tradition. We love it. Only questions is why so few TV channels and why no HD on... More

My in-laws had their 45th wedding anniversary family celebration here. They rented four- 2 bedroom rooms and 1- 1 bedroom condo. My in-laws condo was our "central location" for hanging out together. It had a beautiful wood fireplace, full kitchen with dining area and lots of places for family to hang out. They had a beautiful deck that overlooked Lake... More

We stayed in a one bedroom condo overlooking Lake Superior. Our one night stay was a little chilly, so did not spend a lot of time outside. We did enjoy a great dinner at the Blue Fin Grille, and also breakfast at the Coho Cafe. We liked the little boardwalk connecting the resort with Coho Cafe. We also enjoyed making... More

We had been to Bluefin years ago and loved it. Returned this fall and had one of the best rooms we have ever stayed in. Unit 66B had a wood burning fireplace, a huge double jacuzzi tub overlooking Lake Superior, and a large shower with acdouble head. Absolutely loved this room!

Bluefin Bay on Lake Superior, in Tofte, MN, is truly a lovely place. Unfortunately, they have a questionable way of presenting their actual room rates. Added to our basic room rate was an additional 18.35% "Tax". However, Minnesota State Sales Tax is only 6.875%. Furthermore, there is no Tofte, MN City Sales Tax or Lodging Tax. Bluefin Bay is located... More

As always, Bluefin Bay is my very favorite choice for staying on the North Shore of Lake Superior. We stayed in unit #3, which is right on the waters edge. You can listen to the waves slapping against the shore all day and night. The accommodations and staff at Bluefin are absolutely awesome. They are totally hands on or hands... More

My wife and I had a great anniversary weekend at Bluefin Bay. Our reservation was as planned, the receptionist was very helpful in getting us to our room. However we did not realize we had to climb a flight of stairs to get to the room, but the room managed to suit to our needs. It was very clean but... More

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
