We have stayed here for a few nights each of the last three summers. We stay in connecting family rooms so our 7 and 10 year old have their own room and we have ours. There are no TVs, no phones, no wifi and little or no cell service. Know this going in to the experience. Days are spent on... More

We had originally booked rooms there because we were attending a wedding in the vicinity but when we were unable to attend the wedding, they refused to let us cancel. We were forced to choose some inconvenient weekend in accordance with their openings. I was willing to make the best of it but we were wholly unprepared for the disappointment... More

We didn't stay here as we had reservations in Thunder Bay but was told by a fellow traveler in a restaurant we ate at to stop and take a look. It was a charming, interesting, hotel. Beautiful view of Lake Superior. No phones or tv's in the rooms but this was part of the charm - stepping back in time... More

We really enjoyed the setting of this lodge. The view and pebble beach are wonderful with a few adirondack chairs to use. The common areas of lodge seem well kept. We had a fireplace room and found it to be quite small, dingy and not as clean as we would like. There were stains on the carpet, blanket and the... More

I almost hesitate to write a review because I want to keep this place a secret. I guess the climate will have to help me out. The only thing I can fault this place for is that the rooms aren't very big, and they aren't completely soundproof. (The Sleep Number beds are your compensation). Still, where else can you have...

How refreshing to check in at a hotel and not see TV's, people on laptops and mobile devices. First, there is no cell phone service at the Naniboujou Lodge(there is in Grand Marais 15 miles to the South), no TV, no phones in the rooms and no bar. One can have alcohol in the rooms if you bring it. What... More

We got there a bit later in the evening so didn't take advantage of all the things they have there, including a solarium, restaurant, etc. The knotty pine they have in the place is great. Loved that. But the room is pretty small and a bit older. It is right next to Lake Superior and just across the street from... More

Naniboujou is beautiful. The building....the expanse of the grounds and the views of the lake. I think I could have overlooked a few things, if my initial experience with the reservation clerk via the telephone had gone better. She was rude and impatient as I asked questions. I attempted to choose a room from their website, not really knowing which... More

So three girlfriends and I celebrated a momentous birthday together with a trip along the North Shore in Minnesota. We stayed one night at Naniboujou Lodge just north of Grand Marais, MN. This hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places. Wow! It is truly a hidden gem. The rooms were clean, safe, affordable, and cheerful hotel staff. The... More

I made my reservation on March 20th, asking for 2 rooms of the east side, facing the lake, and I asked more than once if I would be facing the lake. This was our second time at Naniboujou. everything was great the first time. But very upset this time. I would never again tell people to go there.
