We enjoyed our stay at Bluefin Bay Resort. We would have never known about it if it wasn't for our obligations to be there for a wedding I was in. The resort staff were all very friendly and helpful. The day we checked-in (we arrived way earlier than check-in time) and to our surprise, our room was ready shortly after....

We stayed in one of the condos on the resort, and it was beautiful. Our view was lovely, and the accommodations themselves were comfortable and tasteful. We didn't walk around the property much because it was pouring rain most of the time we were there, but it seemed very nice. The price we paid for this place was great! I'd...

My wife and I went up to Bluefin Bay Resort for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We had been to another resort approx. 15 years earlier, and were happy with Bluefin Bay. Our room was a double Jacuzzi upper floor one bedroom suite in the newer side of the resort. The room was nice and had a wood...

We loved our stay at Bluefin. The room was more than we expected, so beautiful and cozy, with the best view of Lake Superior. And nothing better than a real wood fireplace. We really enjoyed the guided hikes. They took us to some cool places we had never been before and saw awesome waterfalls. Since it was spring, the falls...

A great place to stay. Lots of activities. Great lakewalk and beach. Plenty of areas to hike and look for rocks. We love the Grille and CoHo Cafe. This was our first staying in a three bedroom town home. We have stayed many times in a smaller hillside room. I was impressed at how clean it was and everyone had...

We've stayed all over Lake Superior's north and south shores at various resorts, hotels, & houses in MN, WI, and Canada but after 20 years our favorite remains Bluefin Bay. No other place offers a comparable location right on the water plus great service, amenities, and food.

We stayed at the Bluefin Bay Resort on a ski trip. Our family couldn't have been happier with our stay. There were so many amenities and fine little touches that made our stay wonderful. We stayed in a three bedroom unit. It looked out over Lake Superior. Every room of the unit was clean and comfortable. We had a wood-burning...

I'll be honest, upon check-in I was a little discouraged as we were instructed our accommodations were about a quarter of a mile down the road. However, DO NOT let this discourage you. The place was quaint and well kept. To the north of our place was a beach front where you could do a little "exploring" and just take...

I want to start out by thanking the amazing staff working at the front desk when we checked out. My son got a shoulder injury the day before while snow boarding & we needed to check out a day early to get him home. The staff didn't give us any trouble or question why we had to leave early. They...
