As first time visitors at Gunflint Lodge, we were hopeful that we would have a good time. We were not disappointed. Beautiful trip to the lodge along lupine strewn scenic highways, followed by a warm and efficient welcome by staff. Clean, rustic classic cabin with a comfortable bed and warm shower. Please take note, wood is located behind the cabin... More

We (all 7 of us - plus 2 dogs) visited Gunflint Lodge last week for the first time ever. We had an absolutely wonderful time! I can't say enough great things about Gunflint Lodge. Our cabin was clean and big enough for our group (including a sauna and TWO bathrooms), the kitchen was fully equipped, and we used the fireplace... More

We reserved a cabin for our anniversary. A couple days after we booked the cabin our plans changed and we had to change the date and they accommodated our change perfectly. We took advantage of the canopy tours, boating and fishing. All of the staff were extremely helpful and when we made last minute changes they made it easy for... More

We received a crowd cut coupon last fall as a gift for 2 nights @ Gunflint Lodge, however the availability didn't line up with our schedule. We tucked the coupon away and were able to use the face value (now worth less than the cost of 1 night) towards a package. We stayed for 4 nights and had a blast.... More

We are typically hotel goers, but were attracted to the numerous naturalist activities and availability of the canoes and kayaks at anytime so we decided to try a Canoer Cabin since it was so much less than the other cabins. It was just built in 2012 and still had that "fresh wood" smell. Very clean, beds were great, got several... More

We arrived in the evening and after dodging road work which no-one has any control over, checked into our cottage. It was smaller than we expected, but that was fine. What puzzled us was that the light was on and the doors unlocked, but whatever. We settled in and were disappointed to find that despite the DVD player and CD... More

We feel very badly that these guests had a bad experience with us, and we are sorry to have disappointed them. Responding to their concerns: They did not give us a chance to solve any of their problems, or to upgrade them to something more to their liking. When guests arrive late, after we close, we always leave the light... More

We originally planned a camping trip to the Boundary Waters Wilderness area and purchased a special package through the Gunflint Outfitters. We arrived to some nasty weather.., cold, wet and very windy. We are not experienced rugged outdoorsmen and I think Bonnie Schudy, recognized this and worked out a plan wherein we lodged in a cabin and were furnished a... More

Rented the Pow Wow Lodge for a family reunion. It is the owners previous home and it includes all the amenities, including large kitchen, satellite TV and WiFi- which is always sporadic in this region. The Pow Wow is spacious:5 bedrooms/ 3 Baths which are spread across one floor and is perfect for a large group. Book your pontoon rental... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here last weekend and couldn't have felt more welcomed in this cozy, family run resort. We stayed in cabin 20, which was absolutely perfect with a wood burning fireplace, jacuzzi shower and lakefront view. We were truly relaxed and "away from it all" with the gorgeous views of Gunflint lake. We did an... More

We had a nice time despite our rainy, end-of-May weekend. Definitely a great Northwoods getaway. Our cabin w/2 BR was spacious, pleasant, clean, comfortable and secure. I was comfortable as mom and daughter guests. We made use of the kitchen, bringing groceries and only went to restaurant on Sunday for the all-can eat BBQ, which was delicious with great service....

Thank you for your comments and I am glad to hear most things were to your liking. I have followed up on your comment about needing more hot water in the kitchen sink and have taken care of it, so it will not be an issue in the future. I hope you can work Gunflint into your schedule again in... More
