This was our fifth trip to Gunflint Lodge and even though we said years ago that we would never go to a resort more than twice, we can't stay away. Three winter stays, two summer stays, and we're planning the third summer trip right now! The location is like another world. So relaxed, pure, gorgeous - and the resort does a great job of capturing that outdoorsy-ness but still offers great modern amenities. The best, in my estimation, is the food. I highly doubt you can find the quality, taste and presentation of the food you get at Gunflint at both the snack area (Red Paddle) and in the fine dining area (Justine's). The staff is really great too - very hospitable and friendly. The cabins - we've stayed in the romantic cabins on the water and in cabin #7 just off the lake - are perfect. Homey and nice-sized. The only negative I have is the beds (king-sized) in the romnatic cabins are super hard. You can't go wrong with all the hiking and ski trails, on property and those within a few mile radius. We can't wait to go back this summer to do a day-trip canoeing. Pet friendly resort, which is important, and they make the pups feel at home too. It's worth the drive!
