We most recently stayed at Bluefin in January. I wanted a surprise getaway for my husbands birthday. On Friday afternoon, our teen daughter and I loaded him into the car and off we went. And he had NO idea what was up! We checked into Bluefin and Marie at the front desk was most excellent in keeping the birthday party secret. She carefully checked us into 44A (we actually had 44A&B reserved) and congratulated us on our recent anniversary. We headed off to 44A. As soon as we left registration, she called the unit and told our friends we were coming. Walking into the darkened unit, my husband still had no inkling of the surprise to come. Our friends jumped out and congratulated him on his 50th! A great surprise that couldn't have happened without Marie's terrific co-ordination. Thanks!
We had 44A&B, an excellent combined three bedroom unit that suited our three couples (plus one teen girl) marvelously. The kitchen, while a bit small for multiple cooks at a time, was the very best we've come across for kitchen supplies of all types. Great attention to detail! We spent three nights cooking, eating, talking and drinking, cozy in front of the fire.
Each couple took a turn preparing a meal or two, and we ate at the Bluefin Grill one evening. Great service, excellent meal. A bit spendy, but we did live it up with drinks, wine and dessert. And being able to prepare all of our other meals in the unit made the one meal at the restaurant quite affordable. Plenty of room around the table for seven people - whether dining or playing Apples to Apples.
Our teen spent most of the weekend up in the large master bedroom, reading in a cozy chair overlooking the lake, fire blazing in the fireplace. She slept on the inflatable mattress of the sofabed and pronounced it quite comfortable.
We've been coming to Bluefin for years. We started with the studio suites and have worked our way through a one bedroom, two bedroom and now the three bedroom. They've ALL been extraordinarily marvelous. We also appreciate the many pet friendly rooms.
We'll be back in March for spring break!
