Loved this hotel. The room was exactly what we expected and the hot tub after a whole day of skiing was great! The fact that they keep gear for different activities was great too, while we were there we went ice skating and enjoyed the campfire.

I stayed in the grand superior master suite with my husband. The views are fantastic, however, the trees are growing and taking away from the view you have of the superior. Quiet and relaxing! The price tag of the room was a bit high for the room. Even on their "quiet time." In my opinion...it's like any other suite though.... More

Our recent visit to the suite 61 in the hotel from Saturday 12th of July to the Monday morning the 14th almost ended in tragedy when 7 year old daughter was pinned against the bed by the tipped dresser with the glass top resting just below her Trachea. This resulted from the dresser not being secured to the wall or... More

The setting of this resort really can't be beat. There is nothing like staying right on the shore of Lake Superior. There are many amenities that are hard to find at other resorts in the area and really were the highlights of our winter family vacation. The outdoor pool and hot tub are open in all weather (except below zero).... More

We stayed 3 nights in one of the Grand Superior Master Suites. We got a 3 day stay for 2 deal. Staff were all friendly and helpful throughout stay, including the problem solving that had to be done. Room had great view of Lake Superior on 2nd floor. Dated decor and design. Wood fireplace a nice feature, but lack of... More

As many others have said, this resort has great ambience and service. We stayed for a weekend and slept with the door open and waves crashing against the shore. The restaurant on site has incredible food and a day trip up to Grand Marais is worth your time. Lovely, quaint resort in the heart of the North Shore - I'd... More

Great place to stay when visiting the Lutsen ski area. Michele was great for all her information. Its nice to have someone that you can connect with when on vacation and are not familiar with the area.The area is second to none for beauty Definitely worth staying.

I am back here again on a solo trip. Many good memories here with my wife and kids. Beautiful accommodations, right on the lake, with many amenities. Two great restaurants within walking distance. Great place to bring the kids, and a romantic place to relax by the fire and enjoy the spectacular view. Close to beautiful National Parks, trails, and... More

I have stayed many times at Bluefin and as I am typing this at 2:30 in the morning have realized there needs to be desperate updates to this place. For example, after riding all day for the first time this season this bed is making any ache feel worse. Alright so I am not able to sleep..on to my next... More
