We chose this location fully randomly via a Google search of "resorts in Minnesota"! Wow, did we hit the jackpot!
We stayed in a Grand Superior one bedroom condo on the first floor of the northern-most section. We had a full kitchen and a decent sized deck right onto the Lake.
The site is split into a north and south section along the shore right along hwy 61. The 2 sections are very near each other and are connected by a shoreline boardwalk.
-The beauty of the location is indescribable. There was nothing but nature between our back door and the lake and we could pick our way down the rocks right to the shoreline.
-Condo was super clean and the kitchen had 110% of the cooking stuff we needed
-Giant windows out onto the Lake
-Wood burning fireplace
-Pool and hot tub are simple, but nice and the views are great
-Seriously, it's beautiful everywhere you look!
-Hotel staff is great!
-Tons of no-extra-cost activities and the staff in charge of these make it fun and painless
-The resort is on hwy 61, so in the parking lot you can hear the traffic go by. BUT, it's a 2 lane country highway (not a super highway) and there's no noise inside the condo or on the back deck
-Food at Bluefin Grille and Coho is expensive. But very good! Cooking some meals at "home" balanced out the $ for us
