Just got back yesterday and had one of the best trips ever. Great spot to go with either family or that special someone. Not much into hiking but this place changed my mind. The trails are absolutly breath taking. You're just a couple miles from the cascade falls definatly go there! We stayed in cabin #8. Just a 1 bedroom cabin and it was well taken care of. Also had everything you would possibly need(full bath, cable t.v., refridgerator and a microwave). I could go on and on but like I said it was excellent and the staff was very friendly.

We've stayed in the motel unit (5-C)of Cascade Lodge a few times, mainly because it's Pet Friendly, and OFF the Highway for a quiet night's sleep. The unit is quite dated, but the important things were ok, like clean sheets and a clean bathroom. The unit does have an old, musty smell, but I relayed it on to the front desk, and maybe they'll shampoo the carpet, or better yet, tear it out. The desk staff was very helpful and friendly. I think the lodge is now owned by a rather large conglomerate that owns several properties in the area. I hope they'llput some money into renovations and upkeep as it's located on a beautiful little corner of Lake Superior!

The restuarant next door did a nice job with our meals.

We were booked to spend 2 nights in the lodge house itself, but left after just 1 night. The building had an overwhelming musty, moldy smell, the carpets were sorely in need of a vacuuming, the mattresses had little to no support, and the doorknob to our room was barely hanging on. The staff were friendly and pleasant, but the hotel obviously has had little updating since it opened in the 1930s. If you have kids, allergies, or want either a clean room or a restful night's sleep, this is not the place to go. There are other "historic" lodges in the area that are well worth looking into first. If they're booked up, make the 15 mile drive into Grand Marais and try finding a room there.

This lodge had been nice at one time, but the present management must have let it go. Although the view is spectacular, the lodge itself is run down. Rooms were only semi-clean and in need of much maintenance. It's a shame that a lodge with historical value has been allowed to pass by the wayside. It really could be a wonderful stay if someone decided to put some effort into it.

We stayed in the "house". It hadn't been cleaned. Bathrooms were filthy, dead flies in kitchen sink, microwave was dirty
and "hot tub" is actually a whirlpool bathtub. Cigarette butts in ashtray. 1 roll of toilet paper for 2 bathrooms. We ended leaving after 1 night and stayed somewhere else. House is very run down, dirty and smokey.
