“This place looks strikingly similar to Kurt Russell's house in "Overboard"”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2010

When we arrived, we were unpleasantly surprised to see that the property looked like a junkyard! There were antlers lining the ground around the main lodge, which looked as if they were placed there to conceal unfinished construction. The roads to the lodge and the cabins were ornamented with trailers and dilapidated pick-up trucks. Luckily, our cabin was pretty nice....or so we thought. The service was good, but there was only one employee checking in customers, cooking, serving dinner, and bartending. She was really professional and nice, which is the only reason this rating is Poor instead of Terrible! The food and drinks were okay, but I would have rather eaten at one of the great restaurants in Grand Marais. This lodge is dog-friendly, which we loved. Most of the other guests were too.

The cabin overlooked a beautiful, small lake and we had our own private deck and dock. We could, however, hear the neighbors through the sparse tree line separating our cabins. The cabin had two bedrooms and a nice sized kitchen and living area. Overall, the cabin was very clean and cozy. While we were getting comfortable in our bed, we all of a sudden heard a rather gross gurgling sound under the cabin. About 10 seconds later, a penetrating odor of sewage filled our bedroom!! I am not kidding. We were abhorred once we realized there was some kind of sewage line running under our cabin! Needless to say, my boyfriend was awoken by the dangerous stench the next morning.

The decor in the cabin was peculiar. I understand that this cabin is off of the Gunflint Trail in Northern Minnesota, but that should not lead someone to believe that it is cool to have 25 animal skins from hunting exploits draped on every piece of furniture in the cabin. Oh, and let us not forget to mention the stuffed pheasants, deer, and other game hanging from the ceiling and walls. One or two skins would have been enough.

Luckily, we only stayed one night.

We have been to Hungry Jack Lodge many times and are always very pleased. It has moderately priced cabins and log cabins which are lakefront. Each cabin has it's own dock, deck, grill, and much more. Cabins are well spaced for privacy along the shore of Hungry Jack Lake. Great fishing and canoeing in the summer and the only resort on the Gunflint Trail that caters to snowmobilers during the winter months.

The staff at Hungry jack Lodge is the best. They are always pleasant and ready to please you in any way that they can. The staff makes you feel as though you are a part of the "Hungry Jack Family".

We have vacationed in many areas of northern Minnesota and western Ontario almost every year since 1985. Hungry Jack Lodge is the best resort that we have ever been to in northern Minnesota or western Ontario in all that time.

Moderate pricing. EXCELLENT hospitality. Great area with many activities.
