on the gunflint trail in northern Minnesota

When you stay in one of the lakeside log cabins at Loon Lake Lodge lakefront family resort, on the Gunflint Trail in northern Minnesota, you will return to the past and enjoy one of the few remaining original log-constructed resorts on the Gunflint Trail.

While staying at our lakefront family resort you are surrounded by the unspoiled wilderness of the Minnesota north woods.  The Gunflint Trail area, where we are located, has changed little over the years.  It is much the same as it was over a hundred years ago and is still home to over 50 varieties of animals and 200 species of birds.  The calls of loons, the hoot of owls, the eerie howl of a wolf on a moonlit night and the breeze whispering through the trees will take you back to a much simpler and less hurried time.

Being adjacent to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness you can't find a better solution to being able to enjoy the BWCA(W) with all of it's beauty and solitude and at the same time have the convenience and amenities that a full service north woods resort offers at the end of the day.  Spend the day canoeing or hiking in the Boundary Waters and return to your log cabin to take a shower, enjoy a meal in our Lodge and have a cold beer or glass of wine for the evening instead of sleeping on the ground in a tent. 

A free high speed WiFi internet connection is available in our main lodge for those of you who must have access to the internet for work or other reasons.  You'll find that Loon Lake Lodge resort on the Gunflint Trail is the perfect Minnesota getaway from the commotion of life's hurried style.

Gunflint Trail Summer Activities page of our website.

Our northwood's lakefront family resort is on the south shore of Loon Lake, a 1,025 acre lake with a maximum depth of 202 feet.  Being approximately 4 miles long, Loon Lake can provide all of the lake trout, small mouth bass, rock bass and northern pike that you will need for for your nightly northwood's fish fry.

Relaxing, fishing, canoeing, hiking or birding, Loon Lake Lodge resort can accommodate  whatever sort of vacation and outdoors activities you desire.  The activities at Loon Lake Lodge resort and in the surrounding Gunflint Trail area of Minnesota are many and varied.
