We stopped at Kettle Falls Hotel for lunch during a 6-hour boat ride in Voyageurs Nat'l Park. This quaint hotel/restaurant/bar serves food (mostly pizza & sandwiches - pretty tasty). The bar area has a very slanted floor with a 'leveled' pool table. You can drink/eat in the screened porch if you want. The hotel is near the 'Falls dam'. Half...

I want to preface this review by stating that we were expecting a different kind of experience. We expected a quiet, peaceful getaway. Not party central. I will add that the three of the four criteria that we use to rate all motel/hotels 1) Is the property and room clean. 2) Does the shower work well, 3) Can we get...

We were on our way to Kettle Falls for a day trip from Kabetogama and even though we had packed a lunch, we decided to stop into the restaurant for a bite to eat. The food was good with simple pizzas, a walleye hoagie, and a plain green salad with a wild rice soup. Service was friendly and prompt. Indoors...

If you love and understand the National Park experience and it's amazing hotels, you will love it here! Our experience was staying in one of the villas. Getting to the hotel was an experience....we were met at the visitor center and taken there by boat. They will help you with all your gear and supplies. We had quite a bit...

A very nice old charm hotel in middle of Voyageurs National Park. From architecture to ambience to hotel rooms all are in perfect sync and so different from todays mainland big cities that you will fall into love with this gem in this island! Do try their Wild Rice Soup, our NPS Ranger guide suggested that and we loved that....

We took the boat tour from the Kabetogama (try to say that one!) National Park Visitor Center to Kettle Falls Hotel. It is a 5.5 hour tour, and quite wonderful. The Park Rangers did a terrific job of narrating and we were able to see at least 12 juvenile and adult eagles and their nests. Also loon and their babies...

Stayed here in July. Nice staff, good food, but needs a good cleaning. Rooms share a bath and none were cleaned during our stay. Neither was our room or any on our floor. Nice boat ride from the national park dock to the hotel's dock. You can see Kettle falls from the hotel.

There is a fundamental difference between staying at Kettle Falls Hotel and stopping there for lunch, particularly on the two days a week when the National Park boat tour stops for lunch and the small staff can be overwhelmed. Staying there allows you to be transported for a short period into a different and simpler time. We stayed two nights...

We went on the National Park's Grand Tour from the Kabetogoma Visitors Center, which took us to this hotel and restaurant. The only people they served while we were there at prime lunch time were from the boat. We had walleye sandwiches, with the wild rice soup (recommended on TA). The meal was seriously overpriced, but we thought at least...

Waited an hour and still did not get served our food. Finally had to leave. Mgr said they were short-handed, yet others who arrived in the restaurant after us were served. The boat tour to reach Kettle Falls is pretty good, although it could be cut down by 2 hours at least. You can only look for so many bald...
