My husband and I just returned home from our five night stay at the GFL for veterans week. We stayed in cabin 23 which was a one bedroom unit about 75 ft. from the lake. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the entire experience. The food was outstanding and we ate in the Red Paddle restaurant two... More

I have been to Gunflint Lodge many times and always look forward to my next visit. We almost always bring our dogs as the hiking is so much fun and is some of the most scenic views, especially in the Fall. Best of all is the dining. The American plan is well worth the price as this is some of... More

We stayed in the canoer cabins with another couple and they were just right for us. It included a refrigerator, microwave, bunk beds, and a bunk with a full mattress on the bottom. The bathrooms were near our cabin, which was nice. This is a rustic place, but we loved it. The one downfall was that we didn't know you... More

The cabin was perfect, well kept and had all the amenities needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Beautiful views, dog friendly, great food, and plenty of activities to enjoy. We loved our time there and... More

I was here from Montana on the Women's annual retreat from Appleton, WI. Our accommodations was a 2 bedroom house with 2 queen beds each. It has a real wood burning fireplace (fully stocked with wood, kindling, paper and fire starters), dry/wet sauna, W/D and a full kitchen with coffee maker, dishes, toaster. There is also a tv and dvd... More

We went a long time ago, for our April 2013 honeymoon. We hoped for beautiful weather, but of course, we got slop and mud, ice and snow! The drive up is beautiful. We stopped in Grand Marais for our groceries, because husband and I are totally cheap like that. We didn't pick out any special packages, just booked our dates... More

Thank you for your comments from your visit in 2013. An April visit to the northwoods is at the whim of nature, and we have to work with what we get. We do our best to tell everyone that there will be ice on the lake in April but it is not considered safe. Our cross country ski season has... More

This was our second trip to Gunflint Lodge, the first being our honeymoon 10 years ago. Such a beautiful, relaxing and peaceful place!! Fantastic for anyone who loves the outdoors and who wants to just get away from it all! Our cabin was clean, comfortable and came with a beautiful view of the lake. The food at the lodge is... More

The staff are super nice and helpful with every aspect from buying a fishing license, suggesting something wonderful off the food menu, to planning a mapping out a... More

My entire family spent Christmas week at Gunflint. The "cabins" are so large and comfortable our families could have moved in permanently. The natural beauty is unrivaled and the lodge itself is cozy. The food in the lodge restaurant is great as well. This place should be in "The top ten places to stay before you die."

This was our first trip to the north shore and we had a blast. We had the Romantic getaway package, which includes all activities and meals, so it felt a little like a very high-end summer camp experience. Beautiful cabin right on the lake, looking across the water to Canada. Great meals with beautiful views, the sound of loons at... More
