We stayed for 3 nights in the most basic Hillside room over the weekend and then moved to a Lakeside room for 3 nights to take advantage of the weekday rates. The combination of the cheapest rates of the year and the stay 3 pay for 2 deal was the only way I could ever afford to stay here. It...

We have stayed at many of the resorts and hotels on the North shore during our visits but this is by far the best... If you are looking for cheap this is not the place. But if you are looking for quality, beauty and amenities this is your spot. It is as close as you can get to Lake Superior...

We totally enjoyed staying at the Bluefin Bay resort. We had a unit right at the lake side with a nice lil deck to sit on. The BB provides restaurants, activities and pool sides to enjoy. It's close to Lutsen and Grand Marais, nice places to visit. We recommend this place highly!

I have stayed in unit 45A & B more than once during the last year. This unit was completely redone in 2013 and is tastefully decorated with quality furnishings. It does not appear tired or dirty any longer and is stocked with games and books for cozy evenings by the fire. It has magnificent views of the lake and is...

We took a trip with another family and needed a place we could all stay together. Bluefin Bay's Grand Superior 3 bedroom was PERFECT. I couldn't have asked for more out of the space and accommodations. We had two dogs with us as well. 110pounder and a 30pounder. Walking in to the unit was main living space with a well...

We were looking for a 1 night stay without spending a whole lot. We travel up the North Shore quite a bit so a lake view is not something we worry about (anywhere you stay, you can walk outside and see the lake in a matter of minutes). For this reason, we picked a Hillside room. This room was very...

Hello Tamara, Thanks so much for your feedback on your Bluefin Grille experience on March 12th. Although I don’t enjoy it when we get negative feedback we can only improve if we know what isn’t working. Sunday, March 12th was not our finest hour and I would like to apologize personally. Typically this is our slower season and we staff...

I visit The Bluefin several times of the year. I find everything I am looking for in a two day getaway every time. It is evident in the service and amenities, that they strive for excellence across the board. Never disappointed. The benchmark!!

Lovely place for a short getaway. The wood fireplace and Jacuzzi tub are nice in room touches. But it's the views that make it all worth it! The crashing waves right outside your window are so relaxing. Great views of sunrises and sunsets right from your bedroom.
