This was our annual fishing trip with my wife, son, and ever reliable fishing partner Max our dog. This was our first time at Island View Resort. We stayed in Cabin 6 and although it was rustic the view was hard to beat. We were 20 ft from the lake and the deck was about 18 ft above the water... More

We were seated on arrival by a cheerful young lady who proceeded to do everything right during our visit. (Kacie ) Long Island Tea was our starter. Nice! I had a scallop appetizer which was just ok. My fettuccine Alfredo with extra shrimp was tasty but was a bit dry. The prime rib order came overcooked. It was replaced with... More

Terrible. Went last year. Gave them a good review. No room this year so I went to thunderbird. When I asked if I could rent a boat they were upset with me for not staying there. They said they could make an exception but they would not. Very terse. Called me out at the dinner table. Very mean.

With all the negative reviews we were reluctant to stay here. However, since we had our own boat and we were not planning to use the dining facilities, we rented a cabin for the week. The location makes up for a few short comings. There may not be a better view on Rainy Lake, especially from the dining room. The... More

For the price of renting a cabin and boat, you should look elsewhere. The fishing boats are not as advertised. My husband confronted Ron (the owner) about the boats ability and he basically told us there wasn't a person in it under 250 lbs. and that is just the way the boat performs and walked away. He eventually did give... More

While I'm quite sure the fishing is excellent and accommodations are at par with similar in the area, the restaraunt isn't. The restaraunt is overpriced and poorly prepared. We, my wife and I, stopped eating at the Island View over3 years ago because of the same complaints we had yesterday--meat that was improperly cooked, excess fat (30% fat) and grizzle,... More

Stayed in the lodge with beautiful view of Rainy Lake. Room very comfortable. Restaurant menu with wide variety. Beautiful large deck adjoining. Friendly patrons, many returning each year. Billy was an excellent fishing guide, especially for the inexperienced. Ron and Trella, owners, were excellent hosts as well as the staff. Enjoyed 2 1/2 hr boat tour of Voyageur National Park...

We stayed in cabin 10. We were worried when we read some of the negative reviews but we're very positively surprised. Everyone at the resort was very friendly and helpful. They all went out of their way to make sure our stay was good. The restaurant and bar on site was a huge plus. There is outdoor seating which is... More

Great trip to the island, the room was huge would sleep 6. Just my wife and i. Great food at the restaurant and beautiful lakeside view. International falls isn't the Ritz it's the voyager parks. Great views just to get away from the city and catch fish and some rays. 79° and sunny. Could not ask for a better experience.

Island View Lodge is more of a destination resort than the typical hotel/restaurant/bar. Located very near the end of MN highway 11 about 8 miles East of International Falls, Island View Lodge has cabins and hotel type rooms located adjacent to their boat ramp, docks, restaurant, and bar. During my recent three day four night stay I rented a hotel... More
