Sue and Andy who run the lodge are incredibly knowledgeable about the area, and very warm and friendly.
We spent a night in one of the bunkhouses (very clean and we had it to ourselves so it was private) and rented a canoe from them for a week-long canoe trip. We had already had a route in mind, but they suggested other places that we "simply shouldn't miss", and their advice was absolutely spot on. So glad we were able to get their suggestions before we headed into the BWCA!
The lodge is increadibly clean, everyone we encountered was very friendly, and overall very reasonably priced for what was one of the best vacations of our lives.
It's a fair drive to get there, but the added effort to drive out of Grant Marais simply adds to the solitude you're able to get in the canoe area.
