Park-like setting, lots of activities. Cabin 26 above expectations in comfort & luxury. Firm beds, huge jacuzzi tub & separate shower. Full kitchen, but all meals inclusive with fishing package. Award winning restaurant with outstanding friendly service. Full bar/lounge with diverse micro brew and wine selection. Guide John is great and found the fish!!!

I've gone on a canoe trip outfitted by the lodge's attached outfitters two years in a row now. This last September I took my fiance. It was absolutely beautiful! I'd like to make this an annual trip, but can't this year with the wedding. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. They gracefully put up with me, as I... More

My wife and I booked a three night stay at Gunflint Lodge, while on an eight day trip around the arrowhead of Minnesota. I wish we had stayed the whole eight days at Gunflint. Everything was outstanding from the greeting and check-in, our cabin on the lakeshore, the main lodge with its restaurant and lounge, the fishing, hiking trails, and... More

My 13 yo son and I came here for our annual mom/son trip. Awesome! We had a Crowdcut deal which included a cabin, horseback ride, and zip line, but it would have been worth it at full price. The zip line alone would have been worth the drive. Nathan and Michael were amazing guides. They made us feel safe, and... More

My three friends and I came to canoe the BWCA for 3 nights/4 days with the Amazon Local deal (Gunflint Northwoods Outfitters). We received timely communication before our trip and a thorough orientation upon arrival. Since it snowed, we opted to only be in the wilderness for the first night. Sheryl was very accommodating with us and ensured that we... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in a romantic suite in February for our anniversary. We have been to the lodge many times before for dinner and always wanted to stay overnight but always decided against it because $300 a night was a little more than we wanted to pay. This time we decided to "just do it". When... More

My husband surprised me with a weekend of dogsledding and relaxation over Valentine's Day. Dogsledding with Adam was exciting-truly a once in a lifetime experience except that we're hooked. It was frigid but we were too excited to feel the cold. Excellent breakfast and smoked prime rib for dinner. The lodge is cozy and comfortable. It was difficult to get... More

Imagine wanting to get back to cross-country skiing after several years. That was our goal for the trip to Gunflint Lodge. We were a bit nervous because of the below-zero temps and the wind, but once we got out on the closest trail with the quality equipment provided by the Lodge, the cold was no problem. We were both pleased... More

My family just celebrated my fathers 90th birthday at Gunflint Lodge and it was fantastic! Winter at the lodge is beautiful. Deer come to visit often. The cross-country and skate skiing was excellent the trails are outstanding. I can't say enough about the staff and the food at the lodge, its second to none. My dad was impressed with the... More

We were very happy with our stay. There were plenty of activities... Dog sledding, naturalist talks, ski and snowshoe trails... it was also nice to relax in our cabin by reading books by the fire. The staff were very helpful and the food was delicious. The restaurant always had some good Northwoods dishes like walleye and wild rice. No iceberg... More
