I would definitely recommend Gunflint. We had a great weekend enjoying the fresh air and quiet. Lots of activities to participate in although I would want to come back in the summer so we could canoe and enjoy the water more. The on site restaurants are very good and had excellent service. In hindsight I would have brought more snack... More

My family and I just returned from a wonderful 5 day vacation at the Gunflint Lodge. Words can't express how amazing it was! The food was fantastic! The cabin was perfect! And the staff is amazing! We had 3 adults, 4 children and 2 dogs. This cabin was more than spacious! We enjoyed a wood burning fire each and every... More

Called to cancel a reservation ( which i had paid for with a coupon purchase ). I was told that I was to be charged $50 cancelation fee, I understood and accepted that I would loose the value of the coupon ( nearly $200) I thought that the $50 fee was unnecessary. I was rudley spoken to and the woman... More

We are very sorry to have disappointed this gentleman, but there is a bit of a second side to the story. He bought a discounted voucher that allowed for one date selection, but no changes. He called some months ago and asked for special consideration in changing his dates. We accommodated his request. Then he called again and asked to... More

We had the most wonderful Wedding Weekend Adventure at the Gunflint Lodge!!! We wanted to get married in the BWCA and the best choice we made was to have the folks at the Gunflint Lodge host our family & friends! Everything was amazing, beautiful, and above & beyond what we had dreamed and hoped for by having our wedding in... More

Took our first trip to the Gunflint and it will be our last. We were jerked around a bit on the room- had been told one thing on the phone and then got there to find they put us in a smaller room and wanted to charge us the same price as the more expensive one. Then our 5 year... More

We are very sorry that we did not meet the expectations of this family. Our original plan to upgrade this reservation at no additional cost backfired when we could not make it happen. It is my understanding that we offered to have housekeeping reclean their cabin after a foreign object was found under a bed. I personally work the floor... More

Just returned from a Wedding at Gunflint Lodge. It was wonderful and first class all the way. The accommodations are really great. They have beautiful cabins in a great location, our cottage was very clean and cozy, everything we needed was right there. The owners and staff are absolutely the best. They worked very hard to make the wedding weekend... More

We had driven up the Gunflint Trail from Grand Marais a couple of times, and stopped at the Gunflint Lodge for lunch. Each time we wondered about what a stay would be like. This summer we had a chance to find out, and it was wonderful. We knew that it wold be a respite from cell phones and TV and... More

When i searched grand marais on the map the city shows lots of dining and shopping with wilderness all around. This cabin is and hour and a half north of grand marais with no cell, or internet service. we could not even call the front desk for things that were missing in the room, or to order dinner. (there is... More

We are sad to hear we did not meet the expectations of these guests. Our literature and internet sites clearly note that we are one hours drive out of Grand Marais. Each cabin has nice ceiling fans and windows with cross ventilation which guests find quite acceptable, particularily since it cools off most evenings here in the northwoods. Our cabins... More

My Love and I stayed at Gunflint in the middle of winter! It was wonderful- no cell phone reception, resident deer, coffee & tea with cookies whenever, beautiful view, and the walleye chowder is AMAZING! I'd go back just for the soup!

Our four day stay was not nearly long enough to enjoy all Gunflint Lodge has to offer. This is a great resort for the honeymooners, families, and/or friends to have a quiet get away or an excursion in the wilderness. Our family with two little ones enjoyed feeding the ducks and horses, boating to the local scenic waterfalls and hiking... More
