Naniboujou Lodge is a wonderful lodge on the shores of Lake Superior that is registered as an Historic Property. The decoration of the dining room is beyond description. The rooms are updated and very comfortable. Rates are reasonable. The food in the dining room is 5 star. The owners and the staff of the lodge are wonderful and make everyone... More

In the past we've had lunch and dinner. This time we're just passing through after hiking The Devil's Kettle across the street at Judge Magney State Park. The gift shop is always inviting and the lodge itself is simply something to behold. I've sent many people here through the years. What a glorious jewel of the North Shore! One really... More

We recently stay two nights at Naniboujou Lodge. This is a truly historic lodge with stunning views on Lake Superior. You can rest and relax as there is no internet or television. The rooms are small and the walls are paper thin, but the experience is worth it. It is clean and the service is excellent. We ate in the... More

Just as advertised. Lovely historic building. Best food of trip. Charming wait staff. Toured the grounds following lunch and admired the view. Sat awhile in the chairs watching the people and water. Would enjoy to come back for a stay.

This place has a great history and it shows in the rooms. They are tiny -- spent 10 minutes trying to figure out where to keep 2 suitcases and 2 dop kits (which could not fit in the bathroom). The shower was "cozy" meaning you could not be inside and adjust the water and avoid scalding. Adjusting from outside meant... More

This is a beautiful lodge with character and jaw dropping history. It takes you back to a time when families stayed, played, and laughed together. We saw generations eating, playing card games, and skipping stones together in the quiet of the evening. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The dining is picturesque and very nice. We took a stroll after... More

I went up with my family for a long-weekend and loved it. It was so nice to have a room without a tv, wifi, etc. We were forced to have fun together! The staff were overly friendly and helpful. Sitting in the solarium with all the other guests, playing games, drinking tea, etc. was fantastic. I would highly recommend this... More

It is truly a gem that one must see. I had the salmon and my friend had a steak neither of us thought our food was worth the price but we enjoyed the atmosphere. We'd both come back for tea or dessert if bringing guests otherwise we have seen it. We sat on the shores in adirondack chairs waiting for... More

The lodge is right on Lake Superior. Didn't miss electronics because of bonfires on the beach, games and puzzles in the game room, hiking across the street at the state park. The dining room is wonderfully arty and campy at the same time and the food was excellent. The staff is attentive and there is always coffee available!

This was our first visit to Naniboujou after seeing pictures of the Lodge and dinning room and trip reports for years, and we were not disappointed. We stayed in the fire place room (burns real wood), with beautiful Lake views. The room was super clean and roomy. The dinning room is original to the late 20's and is spectacular with... More
