We had a ground floor unit right on the lake. We had 2 bedrooms and a bath. The second bedroom had coffee maker, frig, microwave. The unit was clean and very comfortable. The restaurants on the property are very good.

Blue Fin Bay is a beautiful resort with rooms that face Lake Superior. While there, you can book a kayaking adventure, hire a guide to go salmon fishing, go for a bike ride on paths that are along the main highway, or just relax on the patio.

Easy to find and right on Lake Superior! We were there from Thursday through Sunday and would recommend this great getaway to all! Many nearby attractions to kayak, hike, play golf, and dine! The Blue Fin Grille was superb as was the Coho Cafe and Bakery! You can't beat leaving your windows open at night and hearing the Lake Superior... More

You cannot get any closer to Lake Superior than the accommodations at Bluefin. The rooms are spacious, up-to-date, well maintained and clean. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere is so relaxing. The Coho Café has fabulous breads, pastries, desserts and food. It is our favorite vacation destination.

We are a well traveled, active couple with two very young children. We stayed at a two bedroom condo for 3 nights. Cleanness was a priority for me because our younger child would crawl on the floor and occasionally taste stuff from floor. Everything are VERY CLEAN, including furniture. Despite being around for a long time, everything feel up to... More

I wish there was a 3.5 star rating because that more accurate. The place is nice. The unit we had had a small bedroom, kitchen and dining room with a decent sized living room. The view was great - the lake but what was great for me was sound of the water hitting the rocks just outside the unit. The... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We do apologize for the slow service and the under-staffing in the Bluefin Grille. As for the units, we monitor them all annually and they are subject to updates. We will be doing several updates over the slower winter months. We hope to see you back at Bluefin again. More

We stayed in a Hillside room this time. It didn't have a view of Lake Superior but it was a nice room. Comfortable bed, nice bedding and towels and included a microwave oven and small refrigerator. We also went to the campfire and had s'mores. You could pick up a s'more packet at guest services. There was a fire on... More

Our family did the sea kayaking, bike and hike, hike to Agnes, and tennis. Nice, maintained equipment too. All included with our room. What a fantastic thing! All of the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Our room was pleasant, and met our needs. We loved sitting on the deck in the morning, and throughout the day, listening and... More

Stayed here for a weekend, with the whole family. We had two units, side-by-side. Our units were a short distance north from the main resort, but only about a 5 minute walk along the beach to get to the main resort. The units are privately owned, and rented out through a property management company. The resort is lovely. Rustic, but... More
