The Nor'Wester Lodge is run by amazing people! Luana is a neighborly, friendly, cheerful and helpful host!!! We rented a townhouse type cabin for a snowmobiling trip for us and our 4 adult children. This was a clean, organized and "cabin" feel place. Two levels that put two bedrooms with queen size beds and a loft type room with two...

I've been staying at Nor'wester Lodge for the past 18 years and one would think that I would have seen or heard it all; not true. I had the chance to read the history of Nor'wester Lodge and to take a tour of the main lodge with the owner Carl. The history of the Brandt's is truly amazing...happy and sad...

The Gunflint trail and Nor'Wester Lodge are beautiful! Staying at this resort made our vacation amazing. The view of Poplar lake from our cabin was beautiful. We rented a cabin with a fireplace because we were checking the weather in Grand Marais and it was predicting colder weather. We were surprised with Gorgeous weather and didn't even get to use...

The location is great and the owners are nice and warm. Good hospitality. My issue is with the RV sites. We were told that they have a RV dump site and that was one of the reasons we picked this place in the first place. Due to some environmental issues, they had to shut down their dumping station last year...

NorWester Lodge is located a half hour inland from Grand Marais, Minnesota, in the Superior National Forest, next to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and on Poplar Lake -- a lake you can fish and swim in and see the bottom at nearly any depth. It offers fully furnished cabins and four two-level villas. A sand beach for kids, an...

We stayed for the weekend and having never been to the Northwoods I was taken aback. The scenery was out of this world, flora and fauna that was new to me. The check in was friendly and the cabins are located further up the gunflint trail on the left down a rather steep track. Plenty to do for those with...
