This is definitely the place to get away from it all - especially in the winter months. What a beautiful, quiet, peaceful place. We were a family of 4, 3 adults and 1 child that were well accommodated in The Shack. It has everything you need, and nothing you don't need. We built a warming fire in the historic stone...

If you want to get away it is truly worth the trip to the Gunflint Trail's Loon Lake Lodge. This was our third time (Jan,17) and the first with the new owners. They took over where the others left off. He, at 9PM on a cold winter night, hiked down to the Shack to introduce himself and greet us. The...

My husband and I decided to stay at Loon Lake Lodge for our honeymoon this past summer, and it was pure bliss! We stayed in cabin #6 and awoke to the sounds of loons outside our window each morning. What a delight! Derek and Andrea were extremely welcoming, warm and accommodating, and their son, Dax is absolutely adorable! They gave...

The onsite cross country skiing was absolutely perfect for us - beautiful lakeside scenery, beginner to moderate skill level, and low committal, we couldn't have asked for more. Derek and Andrea are wonderful hosts, we felt well taken care of knowing they were there to plow us out if needed, and answer any questions. Pet friendly is a major plus!

My partner & I spent 3 days at LLL to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Loved the rustic cabin (Cabin 3), with a view of Loon Lake from the deck, and the main lodge. We really enjoyed taking the pontoon boat out for fishing trips - very convenient having boat rentals on-site. Our two beagles went on a lot of walks...

Stayed at "The Shack" in late October, and can't begin to say what a joy it was. From the Great hiking trails, to the pontoon boat excursion, to the wonderful nights in front of the fire, nothing could have made this trip more wonderful. It was such an honor meeting Derek, Andrea, and Dax. The Knowledge and Insight they show...

I absolutely loved this place and will be taking the rest of my family back next summer. My quaint little cabin was perfect for me- windows all around, facing beautiful Loon Lake, a small kitchenette and bathroom with all amenities. I enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Lodge and met the new owners and their charming little boy, Dax. Unfortunately,...

We took a short trip to Loon Lake Lodge in late August and were not disappointed at all. Nothing fancy or glamorous, just a very comfortable, classic northern MN resort. Derek & Andrea are very accommodating and have a great story to tell about how they ended up on Loon Lake. On that note, Loon Lake has to be one...

Just left Loon Lake Lodge and miss the peace and tranquility already! It was a wonderful getaway from the stress of every day life in the city. We enjoyed learning the history on these cabins.
