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...

We have stayed at four of the Lutsen area resorts. (Eagle Ridge, Lutsen Resort and Caribou Highlands) Each one seems to have their own specialties which make them unique. Blue Fin and Lutsen Resort are our favorites, with Caribou next and lastly Eagle Ridge. Bluefin's desk staff seem to have hospitality written all over them. They aim to please. The...

ALL of Bluefins property are exceptional. Our favorites are Temperance Landing and Surfside. Their employees are super and Andrew the manager has been top notch whenever I've dealt with him My only beef is the price. Over July 4th, we stayed for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom and the cost.....a whopping 1330!! To put this in perspective our family...

We stayed in a One Bedroom Condo (Unit 27) this past weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The unit we had was very cozy and well appointed, but we found that the bathroom is way too small and confined (with the angled wall for the bathroom door, there is basically no room for your legs between the toilet and bathroom...

We just returned from Bluefin where we stayed for 3 days. We were impressed with the beauty of the coastline, the wonderful activities and all the wonderful happy staff that were so helpful to us during our stay. We tried the kayaking, nightly campfires, biking and hiking, swimming and hot tub with great views. The food was outstanding and we...

I guess the best testimonial I can give is that the day I return to the office after my annual stay at Bluefin, I change my calendar from "0 days" until my Happy Place" to "358 days until my Happy Place". Each year I check in to Bluefin so that I can check out of the hustle and bustle of...
