Every room in the Lodge has a lake view! We had a queen room w/ jacuzzi and it was a bit cozy, but we managed. Next time, we'll get one with a fireplace which looked more spacious...and a better kind of cozy :)
Yep, the breakfast has Scandinavian items (pickled herring, pickled cucumbers, summer sausage & cheese) but also has 2 kinds of cereal, blueberry muffins, toast, fruit, yogurt, oj, tea, hot chocolate and good coffee (hot drinks available for free around the clock!). We thought it was great!
They have lots of board games and jigsaw puzzles available for free use, and a pool and jacuzzi, which is open to all until 9pm and only to adults from 9 - 11pm. Outdoors they have frisbee golf and lawn for bocce ball.
Plus a fire pit which the maintenance guys prep every night juuust about sunset. S'mores packets are free for the asking at the front desk. Bring insect repellant that has DEET as its main ingredient. Yeah, its a nasty chemical you'll want to wash off when you go indoors, but it works the best.
Another reviewer complained about sparse dining options after 9pm...welcome to Northern Minnesota. It's not just at Cove Point, but every place up there closes at 9 or 10. The desk staff will inform you of the closing times when you check in, so you can plan ahead.
We had amazing filet mignon, a very nice bottle of red and good service at the restaurant in the lodge. Cove Point Crossings sports bar is just up the driveway - close enough to walk. Try the Bear Tracks pizza. Delish.
I've read some negative reviews of Cove Point...it seems they were staying at a different place. We had a wonderful time.
