We stayed at the Bluefin Bay Resort on a ski trip. Our family couldn't have been happier with our stay. There were so many amenities and fine little touches that made our stay wonderful. We stayed in a three bedroom unit. It looked out over Lake Superior. Every room of the unit was clean and comfortable. We had a wood-burning... More

I'll be honest, upon check-in I was a little discouraged as we were instructed our accommodations were about a quarter of a mile down the road. However, DO NOT let this discourage you. The place was quaint and well kept. To the north of our place was a beach front where you could do a little "exploring" and just take... More

I want to start out by thanking the amazing staff working at the front desk when we checked out. My son got a shoulder injury the day before while snow boarding & we needed to check out a day early to get him home. The staff didn't give us any trouble or question why we had to leave early. They... More

Day 2 of the upstairs jungle. We stayed in unit 17b with a family above us and heard every noise they made all night and now all day. Luckily they checked out this am so we did not have to move units. But now it is 5pm and the unit is being cleaned and I am hearing every noise with... More

The resort is right off Hwy 61 on the shores of Lake Superior. It's well-maintained. Access to the rooms and amenities are all outdoors. There are no interior hallways or corridors which is nice to know for a winter visit. Our suite was nice, but not an ideal layout for two couples. It had two rooms, but one room was... More

My husband surprised me with a three night stay. We skied Lutsen on one of the days. Another day we spent our day exploring the area of the North Shore of Lake Superior. We drove all the way to the Canadian boarder. One stop in Grand Maris was really nice. We ate at a nice little diner and shopped in... More

I am by no means a "winter" person, however, when I joined my friends for a weekend trip to Bluefin Bay in January I was shocked to find that I was liking...maybe even loving...Minnesota winter. From the fresh snow and frozen lakes to the crashing waves of Lake Superior everything was larger than life. Our group took advantage of the... More

I recently stayed at Bluefin Bay and really enjoyed my stay. Woke up in the morning to a beautiful view of the lake and all the staff was friendly and helpful. Had a great time shoe shoeing, cross country skiing, and ice skating.

I recently stayed at Blue Fin bay and the staff was all very friendly and helpful. There were lots of fun things to occupy time there including yoga, snow shoeing, and cross country skiing. Great place!

We recently stayed at Surfside in Tofte and enjoyed it so we thought we'd give Bluefin a try this time around. The wood burning fireplaces are a nice amenity. We burned through our supply of wood over the weekend and the staff was quick to respond to our request for more. The kids enjoyed sitting in the outdoor hot tub... More
