We stayed a year ago, and so this was a return trip, as we love the golf courses and this is the closest place to stay. Our room was very nice, clean, smelled almost new. The midweek rate we paid was really good, too. We used the pool and that was nice. We left very satisfied. Note that this hotel... More

Stayed at the Giants Ridge Lodge for a weekend getaway. The rooms were a pleasant surprise. Recently remodeled, each room is more like an apartment. Each room has a fridge, kitchenette, large spa tub/shower, seating area, and fireplace. Sincerely impressed with the space and coziness of the rooms. However, we were disappointed in some of the service and what appears... More

We had a good visit, but it was missing service and a few of the 'extras'. The structure (bones) of the facility are great. Rooms were spacious with a fun North woods motif. On the downside...the service was not good for the price of the stay, the fitness room was completely empty of equipment, the spa was closed when it... More

Beautiful facility with all the opportunity to ensure a pleasurable, memorable experience. Large rooms, comfortable beds, kitchenettes, whirlpool bath, and more. Ineffective management with disengaged employees results in absent desk clerk for major check-in wait, rooms not cleaned during my three day stay, and a restaurant with decent food, but plan on an hour breakfast and two hour lunch. Beautiful... More

No issue with the 1 bedroom condo unit it was fantastic. Unfortunately the entire tone for our stay was set at check in when we found an abandoned front desk (@ 4:30 PM) with a sign stating staff had to step away. After 15 minutes of waiting we finally bumped into a housekeeper who located the front desk clerk. Had... More

There was a large group of us that had lunch there about 20 people or so. Our waitress Kim was awesome, got all of our orders correct and checked back often.

We came using the Stay and play golf package. Could not be happier, the room was exceptional, and both courses - The Legends and The Quarry were phenomenal. Would definitely come back.

Biwabik Class reunions provided a great opportunity for family members to get together around the Fourth of July. Parents have passed and homestead is sold, so we got two suites with two bedrooms each for family to get together. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, when not eating Vi's Pizza, we had food on site. Loved the pool and spa!!! Roomy and... More

Golf experience is unparalleled. We emerged from a gravel road seemingly in the middle of nowhere into a high quality resort with two nationally ranked golf courses. But the true highlight was Chef Chris' Southern Beef Soup. Not your traditional heavy beef stew with potatoes and carrots. Instead - spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, celery and jalapenos in a heavenly broth. Not... More
