My friend and I arrived on Friday late afternoon. We had taken advantage of a Crowd Cut offer awhile back and really didn't know how far Gunflint Lodge was from what we knew Grand Marais to be...
So pleasantly surprised by the welcome we received! The front desk staff were so friendly. I have never written a review online before but because of our experience of the owner, Bruce, helping us "relearn" the game of cribbage while in the lodge...well it was wonderful because for one thing he never once made us feel like we should know who is was and he even refrained from introducing himself as the owner. We were just very impressed with the staff and ownership and surprised to learn it is for sale. It is sad to see a family tradition being sold.
Grand Marais is beautiful. Venturing into the National Forest was thrilling .... I could see Canada from my cabin! :-)
