My partner & I spent 3 days at LLL to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Loved the rustic cabin (Cabin 3), with a view of Loon Lake from the deck, and the main lodge. We really enjoyed taking the pontoon boat out for fishing trips - very convenient having boat rentals on-site. Our two beagles went on a lot of walks... More

Stayed at "The Shack" in late October, and can't begin to say what a joy it was. From the Great hiking trails, to the pontoon boat excursion, to the wonderful nights in front of the fire, nothing could have made this trip more wonderful. It was such an honor meeting Derek, Andrea, and Dax. The Knowledge and Insight they show... More

I absolutely loved this place and will be taking the rest of my family back next summer. My quaint little cabin was perfect for me- windows all around, facing beautiful Loon Lake, a small kitchenette and bathroom with all amenities. I enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Lodge and met the new owners and their charming little boy, Dax. Unfortunately,... More

We took a short trip to Loon Lake Lodge in late August and were not disappointed at all. Nothing fancy or glamorous, just a very comfortable, classic northern MN resort. Derek & Andrea are very accommodating and have a great story to tell about how they ended up on Loon Lake. On that note, Loon Lake has to be one... More

Just left Loon Lake Lodge and miss the peace and tranquility already! It was a wonderful getaway from the stress of every day life in the city. We enjoyed learning the history on these cabins.

We were invited to come stay with friends for the weekend and couldn't have been more pleased. Such an amazing little gem of a place. The cabins are rustic and old, yet clean and comfy and full of charm. The lake and views are SO beautiful. It was my first time on the gunflint trail and I don't want it... More

This was our first trip to Loon Lake Lodge and we loved it. We were looking for a place to vacation with our 7 week old puppy and this was a perfect match. Cabins are very clean, with fully equipped kitchens and everything you need for a perfect getaway. The area – well, let’s just say it is boundary waters,... More

This was our second trip to Loon Lake Lodge and we thoroughly enjoyed both visits. The cabins (we've stayed in #4 and #5) are welcoming, clean, and well-appointed with full kitchens and lovely views of the lake. The lodge is a charming place to play games, sit by the fire, or have a meal (the Walleye is exceptional). But the... More

We just spent a wonderful three days at the Loon Lake Lodge. The authentic cabins are cozy, clean and have a million dollar view. Our hosts Andrea and Derek clearly take pride in their lodge. They are gracious, fun and full of information about the area (eg., hiking trails, where to find wild berries). There are fully equipped kitchens and... More
