We've stayed at Sunset for the last 4 years and have our 5th year reserved again for the upcoming summer 2016. The cabins are spotlessly clean and the rental boats are safe and well-maintained. We are always treated as valued guests. When we need something, they are there for us. Our rental boat was always vacuumed out after a night... More

This resort is situated on the Ash River and is a beautiful place next to the Voyageurs National Park (yes, Minnesota has a NP). Once you visit this lovely area, you're going to find that something keeps pulling you back for more scenery, wildlife, fishing, snowmobiling, peacefulness and quietness that re-energizes the soul, body and mind.

Stayed three nights in Cabin # 2 directly across from Ash River. The cabin was exceptionally clean, comfortable and well appointed. We used Sunset Resort as our base camp for exploring Voyagers National Park. Could not have been better! The owners are personable, informative and professional. In addition, a 'shout out' to the local residents who were equally friendly and... More

They were nice and fair with us. Ash river is not the ideal place to rent a canoe/kayak though. Too many boats and waves make for a rocky ride. Other than that would recommend this place. We paid $20 for the day for a two person canoe.

The last time I stayed at Sunset Resort was 50 years ago. I returned knowing that things are never as you remembered, and that's true. In the case of Sunset Resort is was MUCH BETTER than I remembered! We stayed at their full service campground, the only one on Ash River Trail that has 50 amp, water, sewer and free... More

Ten years ago, my husband and I stayed in Cabin #7. At that time, the cabin was rustic and quaint. We enjoyed our stay so much when we decided to venture back to Ash River Trail it was a no-brainer, Sunset Resort Cabin #7. After several calls to the resort regarding concerns about water levels and fishing due to heavy... More

This is John the owner of Sunset. I do apologize for the rude behavior of a member of my staff. She no longer works for me. Cabin 7 is indeed an older cabin and is next on my list to rebuild. Everyone that stays with me knows that the resort is priced very modestly and that I am always making... More

We were looking for place close to Voyageurs National Park for 4 days of hiking and sightseeing. Sunset Resort turned out to be the perfect choice. It is located right on the Ash River close to both the Ash River and Kabetogama Lake Visitor Centers. The first night we were there we saw a bald eagle on our way walking... More

“wi-fi in main resort store. All cabins are great - some are fancier than others. All are spotlessly clean.”

“There are several newly remodeled cabins. We had unknowingly booked one of the older ones, but upon arrival were upgraded (not too busy in early February) by the owner to #3 I think.”
