The resort is wonderful. A variety of cabins located along the shores of Lake Superior. Our cabin was right on the rock beach and along side a small creek that joined with the lake right in front of cabin. The view was amazing. We saw loons and seagulls daily right in front of the cabin. Ships were visible in the distance. The cabin was clean and had all of the comforts of home. Towels and bedding are provided, but you do need to bring your own toiletries. Charcoal grill is provided, but bring your own charcoal. Firewood is available to purchase for a fire on the beach. There were families, couples and groups of people in the other cabins, but the resort is very quiet. There are bridges and trails that can be hiked around the resort. The office is only open 1 to 2 hours per day, but there is a number posted for any service needs. The resort hosts are quiet but very nice and accommodating.

Room Tip: All cabins have lake views, but some are closer to the lake.

My family and i have been coming to fenstads almost every summer I've been alive. I grew up here. I love everything about this place. It's right in the lake and you can go hiking on the trails to pick raspberries or hiking up the river to find pools of waters to swim in. My sister and I always had fun catching minnows and tadpoles in the shallow ponds. You can climb the cliffs that overlook lake superior during the day and have peaceful bonfires at night looking up at the beautiful stars. My cousin had a boat so we could go fishing and after we would watch my uncle fillet the fish and feed the rest to the seagulls. If you're looking for a beautiful relaxing stay in nature .. fenstads is your place !

We stayed a week in September 2012, a week in September 2013 and we leave Saturday September 20th for two weeks this year.
If you can't find a little piece of heaven on earth here, you need to STAY in the city. And if you really need an air mattress and a microwave oh and OMG NO TV...Please just stay home. We live on the ocean in Palm Coast Florida and the drive is worth every hour of the two day trip. Make yourself a reservation and then go and make beautiful memories. OH, if you happen to drop something and it rolls under the bed, go ahead reach under and retrieve it. You'll find no cobwebs or spiders OR dirt. Just a clean wooden floor. B.Trent.

We've been coming here off and on for 35 years, in the last dozen years in both July and September. Fabulous setting. Rustic housekeeping cabins are clean and comfortable, all with lake views. If you have to have a pool, wifi, tv...look elsewhere. We wouldn't go anywhere else. Owners are shy, not surly. Great location for exploring the north woods since it's midway between Duluth and Canadian border.

Interesting mix of 17 cabins - some are vintage, some are modern. I happened to get a 50's model. Be sure you know which you are renting. No microwave. Otherwise kitchen is fine. Tiny bedrooms. All have a lake view. Rustic is a good description, maybe even worn around the edges. As for service - be prepared to be treated rudely by the son /owner. No email there and their phone number is wrong om their website. You really have to want to stay there!
