This wonderful historic lodge is not to be missed. No Wi-Fi, no cell service and no TV makes it a great place to get away. The food is well prepared comfort food--don't miss the cinnamon French toast! The rooms are small but comfortable and the staff is terrific.

This place is amazing! The history, the decor, the dining room the food, the staff, the rooms......everything was top-notch! I was traveling with a friend from out of state and didn't want run-of-the-mill accommodations, and this was the place. We arrived pretty late in the afternoon, which was perfect timing to check out the grounds and beach before freshening up...

Very restful. No television, one phone and sporadic cell phone service. The rooms are small but comfortable. Bring a good book as there is a comfortable solarium as well as many nooks and crannies, inside and out, for reading. Eat in the dining room with spectacular Cree Indian/Art Deco design and the largest stone fireplace in the state. The food,...

We had a wonderful 2nd breakfast here. The cinnamon roll was huge and my husband enjoyed the oatmeal. The place was beautiful, and they have some nice local things in the gift shop. The service was good as well

This is a wonderful relaxing place to see the fall colors and see lake Superior which a few feet from the lodge. Good food, great hiking, and its great place to get away and enjoy the outdoors!! Many people miss this place because it 15 minutes past Grand Marais.

We had a great friends' getaway to the North Shore and especially enjoyed our stay at Naniboujou. With no TVs or internet/wifi, it was a truly relaxing and disconnected experience. Our room was cozy but clean and comfortable. The Sleep Number bed was a surprise, and the Murphy bed easy to take out and put back. Meals in the restaurant...

We stopped here in the late afternoon - not realizing their hours are a little goofy and we had about 10 minutes to order if we wanted food. The staff was so friendly and willing to seat us and let us take our time with the menu and order food - having worked in the food industry I know how...
