This vacation was amazing. I am so excited to write a review for this lodge, especially given it was during the heart of winter. I think this will be the first review for this time of year, so I am eager to share our experience. Doug was the lodge-keeper. He was absolutely wonderful. Very accommodating and a great person to sit and chat with. We arrived and he was there to make sure we got in ok. Given the lodge was empty, it was pretty much ours for the next couple of days. His dog Roxy was too cute and full of energy. The suite we stayed in, which was in the lodge was gorgeously decorated. Loved the furniture. Felt rustic and homey. Loved the fireplace and porch overlooking the lake. The bed was comfortable. After a hot shower/bath, my fiancé and I feel sound asleep and woke up to snow fallin each morning. Soon peaceful and quiet. Doug made up breakfast each morning. He makes this incredible egg bake. And it was so yummy and filling, we did not need to eat lunch. He was very accommodating through our stay allowing up to use the phone or help us get out of the slippery steep driveway. We saw a wolf while eating our breakfast. Oh and we decided to walk Gunflint lake for dinner. It took about 20 minutes to walk over on the lake. Then walked it back. It was magical. I could go on and on...but this is an amazing hidden gem. Book it for winter vacation. You won't be disappointed.
