“Nice stay for family reunion”
Reviewed 12 July 2009

We just returned from visiting the Gunflint Lodge for a family reunion. I cannot say enough about their wonderful staff. They bent over backwards to make our stay a memorable one. Dave and Sheryl were especially helpful in getting our group out on canoes, but everyone was very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint was that we ran out of hot water in one cabin after only 2 showers, but this was fixed quickly. We also didn't think the barbeque was worth the money, but that was a minimal complaint. This place is great for families. We had sixteen people and 2 dogs in 2 cabins but really didn't feel too claustrophobic. We did some great hikes and canoeing. Overall, a wonderful place!

I loved it here. I loved the fact that my kids were enthralled with nature. The chipmunks that ate out of our hands were the highlight!! Fishing was pretty good! We had a great time and will be back!!

We have been going to Gunflint Lodge for the past 8.5 years. By our recent recollection we think we just had our 14th visit to Gunflint this past week. We have spent a week each March for the past 8 years. We have also spent Thanksgiving, a week in early Sept., a week in Jan., and a week in June. We originally discovered and chose to go to Gunflint because it is a dog friendly resort. With each visit we are once again so thankful that our dog helped us find Gunflint. Over the past 8+ years we have seen many changes and fluctuations at Gunflint, but continue to have a wonderful time at each visit. We no sooner leave than we start discussing our plans for next year. Most of our stays have been in the Lake Homes or Romantic Cottages. We have stayed in the traditional cabins on two occasions. All of the accommodations are very large. The bedrooms have plenty of space with nice bathrooms. Most cabins have saunas and many have hot tubs. Full size kitchens and large living rooms round out the well appointed cabins. The staff is wonderful. Many are the same year after year. Over time the dining room has changed. There is now a Bistro and the fine dining of Justine's. The food is good, but currently is unable to live up to the amazing meals previously prepared by Chef Ron Berg. There is no shortage of activities which varies depending on the season. If you want a awesome northwoods experience you will not be disappointed.

We spent several wonderful days here hiking, boating and horseback riding.
The staff was friendly and attentive to our needs.
Our cabin was huge, but still had a cozy feeling to it.

  • Liked — Variety of things to do
  • Disliked — Food in restaurant (Justines) was overpriced
