This was our 4th time visiting Bluefin Bay resort properties, our first winter stay. It's wonderful to have the mesmerizing view of Lake Superior with floor to ceiling windows and a crackling wood fire in the background while you read a good book in your pajamas with your spouse. We love it there! The staff is especially friendly and helpful....

Let me start off by saying that the environment, rooms, and location are great for a honeymoon. In many ways, I can agree with a lot of the positive reviews writing on TripAdvisor. However, both my wife and I left the resort feeling like the resort could have done much more. This is the reason I am rating it as...

My husband, daughter and her husband stayed here for three nights the second week of January 2017. We stayed in a two story townhome in the Surfside lodging. The rooms were beautiful with floor to ceiling windows showing Lake Superior. There were three balconies in the unit (not used due to -10 degree weather), full kitchen, gas fireplace etc. The...

We had booked our stay and Bluefin months before our trip. It was for our anniversary. We had stayed there before and thought it was just such a wonderful place. I can't say the same.

We stayed at the Temperance Lodging in August 2016. Initially I was a bit disappointed as the lodge that we were staying in was infested with flies. We were unable to change lodging however the manager on duty was extremely helpful and addressed our concerns promptly. The flies were eliminated and we were able to enjoy our stay. Overall, our...
