Not what I expected.

Room was just OK. I thought the pictures on the hotel website oversold the room.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel very much. One issue I had was at check in. And I think it may be more of a problem with Hotels.com than the hotel itself. I held the hotel on Hotels.com with an Amex card but at check in the hotel informed me they didn't take Amex. I had planed on putting the charges on the card I used to hold the room. I didn't have another card with me so it became a big deal. If the hotel one is reserving doesn't take a certain card it should not be possible to hold the room on that card.

Cozy weekend away in a Lake Superior gem!

My significant other and I were looking for a quiet weekend up north, and we got just that! Our studio condo was cozy, clean, and everything we were looking for. It was great to be able to cook our own food in the condo and splurge on an amazing dinner at the Bluefin Bay Grille (steak and walleye!). Highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a cozy getaway in the winter. I haven't been here in the summer but I'm sure it's amazing! Lutsen is only a handful of minutes away, and Papa Charlie's has live music often. We saw one of our favorite bands there during our stay and it was great!

Nice overnight getaway

My boyfriend and I stayed overnight here and we loved it! Very private with lots of great amenities! The view from our room was amazing, we would definitely stay again and recommend to others. We also visited Split Rock Lighthouse State Park and Gooseberry State Park. Spectacular experience in the cooler weather.

Water logged.

When I booked the room I guess I selected the wrong room. When we got there I had something else pictured in my mind. Called front desk the room that I wanted was not available. Condo was fine that we were in. Everything was fine until Sunday morning when there was a water break. Water everywhere. Lucky our phones were not damaged. Went to font desk and they gave us a free night. Very nice and willing to accommodate to me.
