My husband and I stayed at the Gunflint Lodge January 2015. We got the "all-inclusive" deal...Full Moon package. Driving the Gunflint Trail in January was frightening for me, but we made it. The cabin was nice and warm when we arrived, and the appteizers and wine were waiting for us in the fridge. Just outside our window there was a... More

My first time to the Boundary Waters area and it was awesome. Our lake home was very nice, food at the restaurant delicious, and all the activities offered were great. I particularly liked the naturalist programs offered - from learning about wolves and trying a wolf call to the pontoon ride 6 miles down Gunflint Lake and a hike up... More

This review should have been done a long time ago but better late than never. We did the Honeymoon Package in September of 2014 for our honeymoon. I must say this is a must stay.

Peaceful beautiful. Want to go back next year. So wonderful. Can't say enuf good about this place. Took our two teens. One with her bestie. Our son stayed busy with the water toys. There's paddle boards, kayaks, canoes and we got a free 4 hour motor boat. We went out towards the boundary waters. Fabulous time. So peaceful and quiet.... More

This place was an unexpected pleasant surprise. We got a good deal online and I was nervous but this was one of the best family vacations we've had so far. We brought our 13 year old daughter and her bestie and our 14 year old son. We stayed in the low end cabin with no water or toilet. It was... More

We were excited to go on the canopy tour. Unfortunately after professionally getting fitted and prepared to go on the tour, a thunderstorm rolled in. The canopy tour itself looked very fun and very safe. The staff gladly refunded my money and sincerely apologized. I appreciated the fact that they don't chances. We will try it again.

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!!!

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
