We had a nice time despite our rainy, end-of-May weekend. Definitely a great Northwoods getaway. Our cabin w/2 BR was spacious, pleasant, clean, comfortable and secure. I was comfortable as mom and daughter guests. We made use of the kitchen, bringing groceries and only went to restaurant on Sunday for the all-can eat BBQ, which was delicious with great service....

Thank you for your comments and I am glad to hear most things were to your liking. I have followed up on your comment about needing more hot water in the kitchen sink and have taken care of it, so it will not be an issue in the future. I hope you can work Gunflint into your schedule again in...

We didn't stay at Gunflint Lodge, but we enjoyed their horseback riding. Our lady guides were very informative and they know their job. They taught us how to rid, control and treat a horse. The price for an hour rid was very reasonable, considering that there is no other horse stables in the area. The weather was cooperating and trail...

We stayed in one of the Romantic Cabins in May, arriving when there was still ice on the lake. We absolutely loved our long weekend here. The cabin was great, from the pier fireplace and pine panelling to the hot tub to the bed, everything was excellent. Oh, the view from the big windows, through the cedars? The lake entertained...

Thank you for your kind comments. The ice has finally cleared the lake and the lake trout and walleye fishing is great. More of our migrating birds have arrived and today our spring order of 4,000 flowers arrive, so we have all hands on board to start with the planting. In a few weeks the whole grounds will have blooming...

2 of my very good friends and I spent Mother's Day on the canopy tour at the Gunflint with 2 of the greatest guides ever! Andrew and Cassie. They kept us sane and encouraged us to get past our fears and do the ZIP! It was awesome! This was followed by wine and snacks at our cabin. The hospitality, great...

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...

Our favorite part would have to be the deer coming up to your windows. If you eat at the restaurant, the walleye chowder, walleye quesadillas, and prime rib are amazing! Go snowshoeing, the trails are beautiful!
