I went up here with my boyfriend back in October for a few days. We had a lovely time and relaxed, enjoying no cell service. They left us wine and vegan snacks in our cabin each day after hiking. We had fun on the silly Howling with Wolves hike. Sat by the lake and watched a meteor shower. I'd like... More

We just returned from three nights at the Gunflint Lodge. We stayed in cabin 24, a short walk from the lodge and the lake. The amenities were great, and we loved watching the birds from our window. The highlight of our trip was a half-day dogsledding trip. SO much fun! The trees were really heavy with snow when we stayed,... More

We stayed in Cabin 11, which was a 100 feet or so from the water, but a very pleasant, and more open view of the frozen lake, than some of the other nearby cabins. Cabin 11 was nicely appointed and very spacious for just my wife and I and our 2 Golden Retrievers. I loved how welcome the pups were... More

This was my first trip to Almost-Canada Land (though not my wife's) and I was most pleasantly surprised to find the Gunflint Lodge. I didn't expect to find such quiet and easy hospitality; I was met with a smile at every visit to the main lodge, even when employees were clearly tired. The staff was especially professional and capable, sometimes... More

My son and I decided on the opposite of a warm weather getaway so we went here in the dead of winter - January. We stayed in a cabin with two bedrooms, gas fireplace, sauna, and kitchen. The cabin was fun, above rustic and very comfortable. The temperature got down to -18f during our stay and the cabin was a... More

While on the search for the ever elusive moose, we stopped here for lunch. It was a cool (there was snow in the shade) but beautiful day. We had a table right next to the windows overlooking Gunflint Lake, and enjoyed watching children hoping to hook a fish or two. The service and food was very good. My chili was... More

We had a very nice stay the Gunflint Lodge over MEA weekend. The kids enjoyed feeding the ducks each morning and they enjoyed the night wolf howling hike. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent with great service. Bruce stopped in each evening at dinner to make sure we were having a nice time. Just a reminder that your Verizon cell... More

I would recommend this location to anyone wanting to get away from it all, to see beautiful fall colors, and have a relaxing time. We stayed in one of the newer cabins, it was beautiful. You have a fully functional kitchen, a large jacuzzi tub, and a huge bathroom that also included a washer and dryer. Your phones and internet... More

The Gunflint lodge has it's highs and lows and averages out to a 4 out of 5 for us. On the low end with 3 stars would be the accommodations of the cabin we stayed in, which was one of the older cabins. I knew before checking in that we were in a cabin that had not yet been renovated,... More

My wife and I like unique travel experiences and both us grew up staying at lake cabins for family vacations. In addition I've taken several canoe trips into the Boundary Waters. So the Gunflint Lodge seem like an ideal place for a fall trip. The setting was spectacular and the weather perfect. The staff were very helpful and seemed sincerely... More
