We stayed one night at a Grand Superior Master Suite. I will admit the rooms were not completely clean and a little outdated for the price. But other than that we had the perfect stay. My parents have stayed at Blue Fin several times for their anniversary and love it. So for my husband and I's first anniversary we decided... More

My wife and I have stayed at Bluefin Bay a number of times. We always book one of the Grand Superior Master Suites as they are the perfect size and have a great jacuzzi tub. The small kitchenette is adequate. The view is amazing. Apparently they have updated some rooms but I'm not sure which ones. Ours was still the... More

All are well maintained and most are very close to the lake with lake views. the property is well maintained and close to hiking trails . there si a small city park next door.... More

BlueFin Bay does a great job of continually improving their property, and this is best evidenced by their upgrade of the BlueFin Grille, which finally has very good food and nice live entertainment some nights. Fresh salads, nice breads and an updated menu. The condos suffer from the continuous noise from the septic that runs 24/7 along the lake side... More

BluefinGM, Manager at Bluefin Bay on Lake Superior, responded to this review

Thank you for your review and your kind words about our property. Regarding the noise, our septic system is located between the two sides of the resort and away from condos, so I can assure you any noise you heard was not from that. Perhaps the sound you heard was the water crashing against the rocks? If not, I invite... More

This is our first time to Bluefin Bay and it was beautiful. We stayed in cabin 69a. It supposedly is one of the most requested and I can see shy. It had 180 degrees of spectacular views of Lake Superior. Creepy statue, Nick, made it fun for my family. I highly recommend staying here. Hopefully we'll be back.

We have been going to Bluefin Bay for over 25 years and love it! It is so relaxing to look out the huge windows at wonderful Lake Superior in it's many, many moods. The units/rooms are nice, with comfortable furniture and beds. It is great have a fireplace in the living room.

My family of 5 stayed in cabin 12a & b, which was very nice, clean and modern. Master bedroom overlooked Lake Superior as did the living room with working fireplace. Small, functional kitchen had everything we needed to do breakfast and appetizers in our cabin. We loved our dinners at the Blue Fin Grille, which had great service (get the... More

Seamless reservation & check-in! They didn't lie about the amazing Lake Superior views! The master suite could use some silverware, maybe paper plates and definitely wine glasses. The wood burning fireplace is a nice change. There's an outdoor pool and hot tub open year round right next to the lake so that's very cool... Love this Lake! Enjoy!!

You won't regret coming here. Very nice amenities. The wood-burning fireplace in the Grand Superior Master Suite was awesome, and Bluefin Bay keeps you well stocked with good firewood and Duraflame logs to get fires started. The jet jacuzzi tub overlooking the lake is right by the window and spacious enough for two. Be sure to bring some fragrant bubble... More

Oh my goodness, we LOVE Bluefin Bay. It's location is fantastic; Lake Superior is your back yard. If you love crashing waves (we are HUGE fans), you'll be mesmerized. So beautiful, peaceful and wonderful. We try to make it every year, and every year we are so sad to leave. Hiking trails galore around the area. Hike all day, rest... More
