Relaxing time at Cascade as usual! We've been spending time here off and on for 34 years. The experience is timelessly refreshing! Cabin 1 is cozy and refreshing. Stoke the fireplace, sit back, relax and enjoy the Lake Superior view.

I researched a number of North Shore resorts for our mid-November birthday retreat and landed on Cascade in part because of the variety of accommodations and their restaurant was a very short walk over a cool rustic stone arch bridge from the lodge. We arrived and were warmly greeted by Josh who was patient enough to let us explore a...

We stayed in one of the cabins which was perfect! The cabin had a word burning fireplace which added to the charming atmosphere on our wet, cold October weekend. One of the main reasons we chose Cascade Lodge was because they allow dogs in their cabins. We received a VERY warm welcome for our furry baby as they had an...

Went for a quick little get away after our wedding and this place was great! The view from our cabin was gorgeous and the cabin was quaint! The gentleman that checked us is was very nice as well as the gentleman that helped check us out. We hiked up to Lookout Mountain and the view from the top was breathtaking....

It had been years since my wife and I had visited the North Shore and never to enjoy the changing fall colors. Although we decided to go a month and half before our trip date lodging was sparse. We had heard of the Cascade Lodge and thought based on being a North Shore iconic name it would be a good...

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Cascade Lodge. It seems like you may have stayed in our Suite 104. It's a very popular choice, has been remodeled and kept up to our standards and is always spotlessly clean after our housekeepers get it cleaned. We have had literally 1000's of comments to that effect so I...

Love this place. I stay in the cabins as they allow my dogs in them. This is the number one reason for me closing this place. Great hiking and shopping nearby. Cabins are clean. Staff is friendly. Highly recommended.

This property offered a lot of different options. There were rooms in the main lodge, little cabins, bigger cabins...it all depends what you are looking for. Not fancy, but comfortable and reasonably priced. Check with the staff to make sure that you are getting lodging that fits your needs and wants. We enjoyed our night there. The staff was very...

Nice classy old lodge. Nice functional sleeping room was adequate and clean though one of the chairs was slightly wobbly. TV got Big 10 football (which was nice during a rainy midday).

This was our 14th year staying at Cascade Lodge. This Lodge is in the perfect place to stay, so comforting after a day of hiking. We have stayed in numerous cabins but find cabin 6 is our favorite. The owners are very friendly as well as the staff. We will be back again for many years to come.
