Ludlow is our family's best vacation spot. We look forward to it every summer we go. Our three boys have so much fun being on the island, boating, swimming, fishing and meeting new friends. We love that it's such a great place to unwind, unplug, and spend so much time together relaxing and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. It is like...

We have stayed in the island may times. Each time we have been treated like family. You can't find a more serene, beautiful setting, charming cottages and friendly staff. It is unique and fun experience, in a beautiful setting.

We have a large family so we rent two BIG cabins (guys and gals). For 7 days we play, boat, ski, read, chat, play cards/games, do puzzles, cook/eat, laugh and reconnect with our kids, ages 28 to 12. No phones, no computers just real people and real fun! Cameras are a must for the sunsets and the family antics. Last...

Our family has been spending a week at Ludlow's every summer for the past 12 years. Its our version of "a cabin up north" and we all love it. We find that we shed the stress of regular life as soon as we turn off the highway, and are relaxed by the time the shuttle gets us to the island....

We stay at Ludlow's for a week every year and enjoy every moment. Lake Vermilion is magical and full of fish. The cabins are comfortable and well equipped. The boats and motors are always in great shape, and best of all, Ludlow's service is second to none. We have travelled the world and this is our favorite family spot.

We've been to Ludlow a dozen times and have never been disappointed. We always go in the fall, right before the resort closes, and if you want a "get away from it all in quietude" kind of vacation, this is it. The site itself is marvelous, so secluded and pristine. And the staff at the island are great. They're there...

Ludlow's Island is a fabulous family vacation spot. The staff is top notch and they make you feel like family. The secure island setting is great for younger kids as they can have a lot of freedom to roam around.

This was a fantastic getaway in which we stayed three nights with my parents and our three-year old son. There was SO much to see and do that we were really kicking ourselves for not staying an entire week. My parents were easily able to "pop in" for a day to enjoy the lake and playing with their grandson by...

Absolutely delightful getaway. The owners and staff are outstanding. Lots of activities for children. Our grandchildren have grown up here. Fishing and water sports are excellent. We have coming to the resort for the past seven years.

My husband and I have traveled the world and Ludlow's is our favorite destination. They pamper their guests, providing world class service with an eye towards providing you privacy. The individual "cabins" feel like Northern Minnesota at its finest...fireplaces, (we choose a cabin with a large whirlpool), cozy bathrobes...all within a gorgeous setting. Lake Vermilion is spectacular. Feel free to...
