My wife and I recently finished our second stay at Cascade Lodge, as the first was on our honeymoon. Before staying here, it's important to understand what Cascade Lodge is, and what it isn't. If you're looking for a luxury resort with full amenities, this is NOT the place for you. Similarly, if you're looking for new and modern, this...

Loved the Lodge - We stayed in an upper corner room. We loved it! Great view of Lake Superior! The hotel is older, but has lots of charm! Beautiful sitting area on first floor with views of the lake. Also has outdoor sitting in front of the hotel across the road on the lakeshore. You do have to cross Hwy...

Thanks for joining our many repeat guests! We appreciate you taking the time to review our property and mentioning our awesome Lake Superior Shoreline which all guests are able to enjoy. Have a great fall! Michael and Maureen O'Phelan, Owners

We have been coming here for 10 years, and never stay anywhere else on the North Shore. Cabin 3 (small and rustic) and Cabin 12 (larger and a little fancy, with a lovely deck right on the creek) are our favorites.Beautiful location within the state park makes it perfect for hiking. Pet friendly. Good restaurant and great staff.

I had booked two nights here as the finish to a week of camping and biking along the North Shore for our 23rd wedding anniversary. The people were nice when we checked in and the small bathroom and shower was good. It was wonderful to get a great shower and their fluffy white towels were a luxury after using a...

Thank you for taking the time to review our property! We are sorry for the warm summer weather! But up here, it's frankly a blessing to get some nice warm days and nights. Most of the time, especially at night, it's in the 50's to 60's here so air conditioning is just not a thing here just like furnaces and...

My daughter and I had a great stay at the Cascade Lodge! We were looking for something a bit more "rustic" than a typical hotel, and this hit the spot! We stayed in cabin 5A. When we first entered our little cabin, it did have a bit of a smell. Additionally, the room was a bit warm as it was...

Thanks for recommending us to other guests! We appreciate it and especially are glad you enjoyed our unique Lake Superior shoreline. Just FYI--we replaced our ice machine last week with a new air cooled one and it is working great! Michael O'Phelan, Owner

We stayed in the Creek Chalet at the Cascade Lodge last week. We like the peace and quiet of the place and the nice deck outside where we could sit and listen to the creek rush by. A nice location and friendly staff.

We stayed in a cabin for the third year in a row. Our stay was very enjoyable. This location gave us easy access to sites we wanted to visit. Had a very good experience. Seems to be good for families too.

We recently stayed in unit 5D, with 2 bedrooms, full bath, and a great room with full kitchen. This is an old, rustic resort, but it was adequately furnished and had a very good kitchen and dining table. It was quiet and across route 61 from Lake Superior. It is surrounded by Cascade River S.P. and next door to a...

Uneven flooring. Super uncomfortable mattress. First night I felt like I was sleeping on an angle, so we turned the mattress, but somehow that was worse. Cream curtains not very dark. We were in the middle of three cabins so we had no view except of other cabins. Cracked paint dresser in the bathroom must be from the 1940s--needs some...

This hotel was very disappointing. The only positive I can say is it was clean. The rest from the paint on the walls to all the furniture is old and worn. In particular the slip covers on the common living room chairs were ill fitting , worn and uninviting. It needs a major renovation.
