A very nice location right next to Cascade Park. The trails along the Cascade River are manageable by most hikers. You can join the trails right from the Cascade Lodge. You have a great view of Lake Superior and the deck on the south side of the lodge was very relaxing. We stayed in a rustic cabin and were quite...

Thanks for your excellent review of our property! We especially appreciate you noticing our Irish themed entrees and specialty drinks. We are thankful to be surrounded by Cascade River State park with it's many visitors and speed control laws in place. Take care and hope to see you again some time.

We stayed two nights in room 104 (the honeymoon suite). Loved the private patio and lake views. At times, the truck traffic was a bit loud but it never kept us up. The property offers easy access to the lake (it's a rocky beach but you can swim here easily) and excellent access to local hiking trails and the Superior...

We stayed at the main lodge. It's a very old building so the walls are paper thin. We could here everything. The people next door to us were up with their little kids until 2 am talking and yelling at them. It was more of a mtater of poor parenting rather than a problem with Cascade Lodge. I complained when...

I'm sorry your stay at Cascade Lodge was disrupted by other guests. I appreciate you noting that it was not Cascade but the other guests that were the problem. This happens at all hotels from time to time and is unfortunate. For the record, all of our rooms have insulated interior walls to cut down on noise and our room...

Great location for North Shore day trips. From front porch of lodge a fantastic view of lake right across the road. Not a beach, per say; pretty rugged, but a beautiful, hike-able shoreline. I should have asked for a room on the 2nd floor. My room was right off the lobby. Didn't like the idea of a public area, with...

Thanks for your review of our property. You most likely stayed in room 103 I'm guessing and you most likely booked online. 103 is very popular with families because it is located off of our great room and they an enjoy a large game filled space just outside their door. I am glad you liked our facilities and amenities as...

Classic old Lodge- homey and comfortable- with games, books, and a piano in the lounge. Wonderful service from the staff- and great views of the Lake. We enjoyed the Cascade Hiking Trails right there on the property as well as the Restaurant next door.

My husband and I had a great stay at the Cascade Lodge. The property is very conveniently situated between Lutsen and Grand Marais. We loved being able to hike directly from our cabin. Our favorite part was enjoying a bottle of champagne on the rocks in front of the hotel, with the only other noise being the waves from Lake...

The area was beautiful. Our cabin was comfortable but very unhappy to find out that there was no AC. The site that I used to make reservations stated AC in cabin. All other information on web was pretty accurate. Our room was clean but outdated and the mattresses were horrible, very old and uncomfortable.

Hello, I don't know who you booked through but it's always best to call in for the most accurate information. We do indeed have air conditioned units but only a few. If you book online it may state that we offer air conditioning but not in all units. Frankly, we are right on Lake Superior which is the best air...

Whether you are hiking the Eagle Mountain High Point of Minnesota or the Cascade trails this hotel has a great location. The views are also perfect since there are no buildings between you and Lake Superior. The rooms are small but adequate, clean and minimalistic. The restaurant next door is great for breakfast and it is a quick drive to...

Thanks for taking the time to review our property. I appreciate you mentioning the great hiking trails on and near our resort. In the winter we feature 60km of groomed ski trails for both classic and skate skiers--we like to say that "all trails lead to Cascade." Thanks for becoming another repeat guest!

We rented room 208 in the lodge. The lodge has a large great room and a lower level for pool, ping pong and arcade games. Room 208 faced Hwy 61 with the lake across the highway. It was a great view. Because there is no AC, we had the windows opened. Can be noisy with traffic in the morning, so...
