My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in July, 2014. Our room was right on Lake Superior with gorgeous views. The master bedroom overlooked the lake. Nice to have a jacuzzi in the room, as it was quite chilly at night (50's). The resort was very peaceful and quiet and offered many fun activities, such as kayaking (free),...

Our family had been planning this trip for months. It's hard to get all of your children together when they are so busy with their own lives! Wife and I usually go to BB at the end of October, where you get three nights for the price of two. Good deal! Summertime is usually spent at the campgrounds up nearby...

This was our first time staying here. We've stayed at Caribou Highlands in the past. We loved being so close to the water - I didn't realize what a difference this makes. The splurge for a lake front condo was worth it. We stayed with our kids, ages 3 and 5. They loved the campfire with s'mores provided, playground, pools,...

Decided to spend a "date night" with my spouse here. Although the resort was maintained and views were beautiful, it was very busy. Possibly not the best choice for a "date night". Check in was fast, friendly. The lake walk is very nice. Outdoor pool is small, but refreshing with great views. Rooms are starting to show their age, I...

The studio room we were given looks nothing like the pictures on the website. Dated, dirty, and not worth the cost, even with the view. Front desk was not very understanding or helpful when we called to voice our disappointment. We have stayed there in the past and never run into this problem-I'm surprised they rent out rooms in such...

We have been spending several days at Bluefin Bay almost every year for the last ten years. We take our whole family - 15 of us - and the grandkids just love it. The adults do also. There is so much to do and we take advantage of all of it - from using both pools to playing tennis, to...

My husband and two year old son spent a long weekend at Bluefin over the 4th of July. We had a first floor Grand Superior one bedroom condo. We really like the 'cabin' feel and the large windows overlooking the lake - amazing views. The suite we had could have used some updating, but we didn't mind. One thing to...

Food was delicious, pricing was standard for the area, a little more than I'd normally spend, but is a resort. Staff were friendly and hospitable. The view from the back deck was amazing. I recommend stopping in. Maybe next time we'll stay at their hotel.

We stayed here two nights for our niece's wedding. The location is gorgeous! We had a room with a balcony overlooking the water and couldn't ask for a better view. The staff was very professional and friendly. The only drawback was the lack of air conditioning in the room. We needed to keep the windows open in order to cool...

We needed an R&R break and took advantage of last minute pricing on a 1 bedroom elite condo. What a treat to find it exactly as described, with stunning views of the lake from both the bedroom and the living room plus a walk out which had us just seconds from the shore. This would have been enough. Smores by...
