Bluefin Bay Resort is located off State Route 61 in Northern Minnesota. We stayed in a studio which included a full kitchen and bath, fireplace (including firewood) and patio about 10 steps from the lake.
The condos are all individually owned and include studios, and 1,2,and 3 bedroom units. There is a restaurant located on the property and also a coffee shop. For about $175, we also could use the indoor and outdoor pools, hot tubs, bicycles and fully guided kayak tours.
Not only can you use their bicycles and kayaks, they also give you a s'mores packet to use at the nightly bonfire on the beach.
We didn't do much sightseeing in the area as we wanted to take advantage of all the resort had to offer. But Lutsen Ski Resort is located close by with hiking and tram rides in the summer and downhill skiing in the winter. Bluefin will also shuttle you to a trail nearby and you can hike back to the resort.
We used the indoor and outdoor hot tubs (Bluefin Bay has the only outdoor year-round hot tub on the northern shore of Lake Superior) and decided to eat dinner on the patio at our studio and take advantage of the beautiful view.
For an extra $50 per person you can take a ride on the sailboat Avanti which was moored right off the resort. We had fun going on a guided kayak tour on the surprisingly calm Lake Superior. In my mind, Lake Superior is always rough like in "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitgerald"
I really enjoyed my stay at Bluefin Bay Resort. Customer Service was great. It was quiet, relaxing and in a beautiful setting. There was plenty to do for all ages. And this sunrise view was well worth the splurge.
