The outfitters are wonderful. They make certain everything is done right and we have all the items we need to be successful in the BWCA. We look forward to our trip every year. and just love coming back to an evening at the lodge with good food and beverages to celebrate another successful canoeing trip in the Boundary Waters.

I could tell you about the employees - Mandy the waitress and horse wrangler, Chris the amazing bartender, John the hip naturalist, Adam the musher, April, Op, and Marilyn the super friendly front desk folks, Carlie the massage therapist and waitress, and on and on and on.

My husband and I stayed in a canoer's cabin last summer and the experience was unforgettable. The lodge is wonderful, the staff is knowledgeable and friendly, the cabin was clean and well-built, and the location is breath-taking. We can't wait to go back

Don't be "gun shy" at Gunflint of the prices, you get more than you pay for in quality accommodations and service. There are other places around, but Gunflint offers literally everything you and your family might want to experience -- horseback riding, fishing, zip lining, treks, good food, and peace and quiet. We tried all of them. The hot tub...

My husband and I will be staying our 3rd year in a row at the Gunflint Lodge. The cabins are very nice and comfortable. Anywhere you go on the resort, the staff is amazing. The food is wonderful, especially the walleye dinner and their smoked meats. In the evenings we enjoy sitting outside on the deck or our own private...

We stayed at the large Pow Wow cabin -- fully equipped large kitchen and plenty of space for a family of 6. In early December we still didn't have enough snow to go skiing or dog sledding, but had a lot of fun on naturalist hikes, just walking the grounds, and sledding with the kids.

Chose the lodge because of the dog lover weekend and everything was amazing. Also proposed to my wife, it was a truly fantastic stay! One major note is that you likely won't have cell service, but the lodge does have a phone and Internet as well (but for god sake go out and enjoy the beauty!) The drive to get...

My husband and I took a romantic, no-kids trip to Gunflint Lodge. If you're looking for comfort in the wilderness, this is the place. We found the romantic cabin comfortable, cozy, and private, and all of the food was superb. Our massages were excellent. All of the staff was friendly and helpful, too. It's really far out in the middle...

Visited Gunflint Lodge for three days in April and it was heavenly. Gunflint is on the border, with great views of Canada across the lake. Snowed on the way up and snowed on the way back, but while we were there it was 60 and sunny. Such is Minnesota in April. Like to travel shoulder season with smaller crowds and...
