Love the service of boat taxi whenever you need to go to shore - just pick up the phone and they are there within 10 minutes. It's peaceful on your island and well appointed with wood for a warm fire in the evenings.

Thanks for staying with u, we enjoyed having you as guests. We were blessed with great Labor Day weather, glad you could experience that. P.S. The Sauna is functional. Being in the boat house gives guests a chance to jump in the lake....its a blast....More

Ludlow's is not only a fantastic family destination, it is absolutely Minnesota's best choice for entertaining customers on a spring or fall fishing trip. Without question, they will have an unforgettable experience and they will catch fish!

Jack Thanks for your review. We love the spring and Fall Season. It is by far the best time get into some great Walleyes on Lake Vermilion. Thanks for your continued support

this is our 4th year staying with them. every year we stay in the northshore (not on the main island). it is perfect if looking for seclusion and to spend time with the family. Cabin is clean and staff is very friendly.

Response from LudlowsResort, Owner at Ludlow's Island ResortResponded 14 August 2017

Thanks for the kind words about Ludlow's. Northshore is one of our favorite cabins. There are not many resorts where you can stay in a cabin that is hundreds of feet from the nearest neighbor and great sunset views from the swing!

We have closed for the season. The amphicar was restored last winter and gave rides this year until October 1. It will be back in the water next May for its 50th year of giving rides!
