We stayed for 4 days & 3 nights in the Cross River Suite. It couldn't have suited us better. Loved it! Everything was spotlessly clean. Not many places can get that comment ! Our suite was laid out nicely and felt restful every time we came in. Now for the breakfasts!! My gosh... what a great cook John is!! The... More

Friendly, courteous, and eager to please owners who excel as hosts. The lodge and our cabin was well maintained and clean in an awesome setting. The breakfast was the best was absolutely delicious. Sitting in a lounge chair listening to the wind through the trees and the water slap on the lake shore is a memory I will recall frequently... More

I can't imagine a nicer place to stay on the Gunflint Trail and the is no more gracious host that Rose and her crew. On our most recent visit, we stayed in the Cross River Suite at the lodge and the accommodations were first class as usual. And if the wonderful facilities and staff are not enough, just wait until... More

I can't say enough about our stay at this place, it was perfect. John and Rose are amazing hosts. It's true, they really make you feel right at home (without being intrusive). The hot breakfast was a great start to our fishing adventures everyday. We enjoyed the best of both worlds, fishing from a motor boat on the big lake... More

This was the 5th year at Cross River Lodge for our extended family vacation and there is no where else we would rather be. The cabins are spotless and comfortable, John and Rose are always so welcoming and the breakfasts are pretty legendary! The only down side is with every passing year it gets more and more difficult to leave!... More

We just had our 5th stay at Cross River Lodge. As always, the Lodge on the north shore of Gunflint lake did not disappoint. John and Rose are wonderful hosts that treat their guests as old friends. Lena seriously talks about John's breakfast all year long they are so amazing (really, no joke). A few milestones for our trip this... More

Whether you walk thru the doors of the lodge for the first time, or for the 100th time - you will feel right at home - EVERY TIME! From the genuine hospitality of the owners, John and Rose (and staff), to the home cooked breakfasts for each guest each morning, they ALWAYS go "above and beyond" to assure your stay... More

I cannot say enough about John and Rose. They are no longer lodge owners to us but more like family. We very much look forward to seeing them each year. The hospitality, the breakfast and their commitment to making your vacation special are second to none. We stay at Bear Paw and just love it. We are immediately relaxed and... More
