We feel lucky to have stayed in this place. We took a short hiking and saw wonderful cascade falls along the Cascade creek trail before a tasty dinner and then relaxed in the big whirlpool. It was very relaxing indeed after a long day of travel. The room was clean and the night was quiet. There was a hidden place... More

This is a lovely property with Gorgeous hiking trails next to Cascade State Park. The beds are comfortable, the towels are soft, the shower is hot and water pressure is fine. The motel unit has some rooms with kitchenettes. I went with a bunch of friends for another friend's birthday. It was a wonderful place to relax and hang out... More

We were desperate! We had no idea that lots of people visited this area and all of the rooms would be taken. They were! So we kept on heading north. We stopped because The Cascade had a sign that said cabin available. I sent in my Sweety to inquire. He came back with a lodge room because they allow pets... More

My wife and I spent another wonderful week at Cascade Lodge on Minnesota's scenic north shore. This time we reserved a cozy cabin overlooking majestic Lake Superior. Our cabin included a wood burning fireplace, a full kitchen including everything you need to prepare a home cooked meal, a large clean bathroom, daily maid service, and wonderful meals at the Cascade...

Excited to try something new! We've camped at many of the state parks along the north shore but decided to try a cabin....it was awesome!! Quiet (September-after school started), well cared for, hiking was great and if you need your technology fix there is satellite tv and excellent wi-fi.

Thanks for mentioning our creature comforts! Years ago, we got dinged regularly for not having fast enough WIFI, but since 2014, we have had broadband internet available due to a government grant in Cook County. That allowed us to offer the faster service. The TV system is Dish Network and was also installed that year, but it is satellite. HOpe... More

Visiting and site seeing in the area. Cascade Lodge was quiet, our room was spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location and view from the front room is lovely. The conveniently located restaurant is good. Less favorable were the too firm mattresses and foam rubber pillows. Also, the ceiling fan in the room was rickety looking and noisy.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. I am super sorry about your pillow and have yet to track it down. We have never purchased a foam pillow so it's possible it's one that someone else left and got into our inventory. If you could possibly email us about the room number that would be great. We just put all... More

First, the owners are VERY supportive of hikers! No strings attached, they immediately agreed to hold a box of food/resupply items for a couple weeks for my husband and I, on our thru-hike of the SHT. As it turns out, the morning we arrived to pick up our box, it had stormed overnight and we were wet and cold. Luckily,... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our property and mention our support of the Superior Hiking Trail which come directly through our property!

We have stayed at Cascade Lodge several times. They have many options to choose from, from a room to several different cabin options. Our favorite is the cabins on the creek, if you open the windows you can listen to the running creek waters. There are hiking trails that go directly into Cascade State Park and the waterfalls are an... More

From the first minute we pulled into the Cascade Lodge, until the sad moment we had to leave, we made cherished memories with our family. The setting is like out of a story book with picturesque cabins, a rippling river, and waterfalls. Across the road is the grand Lake Superior. Cabin three was well stocked and perfect for our family.... More

I randomly came across this place while looking for somewhere to stay during the tall ships festival in Duluth. Our stay at the Cascade lodge ended up being the highlight of the whole trip! While some may not like the homey atmosphere and country feel, it was perfect to me and my family. It is definitely not a luxury resort... More
