loved the locations, right on the lake...it was beautiful to wake up with the view of the sun rise on the lake....the beds are comfortable, and the rooms are clean. We had some mix-up with our reservation and everything was finally sorted out, they gave us free breakfast for our trouble! Food was great! would definitely go back there whenever... More

My fiancé and I spent two nights at Thunderbird Lodge in early September. We crossed the border in Fort Frances which was very painless and drove about 15 minutes to the lodge. Check in was quick and there was plenty of parking. We had booked a Queen room and upon arrival we were rather shocked at the size and state... More

Can't say enough about the phenomenal service we received upon arriving for our 10-day stay. Front desk staff so friendly and accommodating. Rooms were clean and quiet and convenient to the restaurant and lounge area below. Food, service, drinks all excellent!....and the owners took personal pride in greeting and making sure everyone was happy! We really enjoyed having coffee outside... More

This was the second time we have been here in 2 years. NEVER AGAIN. We have been in cabins 3 5 and 6. Dirty, stinks, windows will not open, bug infested, spiders all over. Biggest ripoff for $1700 a week. Contacted front office....NEVER EVEN RESPONDED.

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor I decided to give this place a try. I normally like to stay at an above average hotel, so I was a bit nervous about staying here. The first thing you have to remember is that you are in INTERNATIONAL Falls....not a big city. There are no 4 stars....3s would be stretching it. With... More

My mother and I spent a week at the Lodge recently and what a wonderful stay! The rooms were comfortable and the view was amazing! I slept well every night because the beds were amazing! We also ate in the restaurant almost every night and we all enjoyed each of our meals! I would suggest that if you want a... More

Clean affordable rooms and cabins with friendly service. I have stayed here 10 times and can't wait to go back. The prime rib is one of the best prime ribs I have ever had. The fishing is great on this lake during August and latter into the season. A good dock. Bait is available at the Rainy Lake Houseboats or... More

We spent a week and had no problems in the cabin but the exterior had trash scattered around and when a dog got into our trash bin, I called the desk and it took a half a day to partially pick up and a day to empty outside trash after a call. Not sure owner or management on site but... More

Recommended by the U.S. Customs agent when we crossed the border.....this was an excellent place to stay and eat dinner. Janine, Manager, was exceptionally friendly and helpful and our server, Tracy, made our dinner a very fun and relaxed experience. Would highly recommend this place to stay for an extended period.

Wanted to stay close to Voyageurs, searched websites & reviews to find what seemed to be a more updated lodge than others in the area. Pictures and reviews can be very misleading. I get that it's mainly a fishing lodge, but we stayed in the lodge itself, not a cabin, & expected a little more. Carpets in hallways haven't been... More
