(Excuse some background: In Bluefin Bay Resort 'language' our home is sometimes referred to as a 'Grand Superior' - & in that 'language' what we refer to as the 'A' section, ground level, is a 'Grand Superior One Bedroom' & what we call the 'B' section, upstairs, is a combo of a 'Grand Superior Master Bedroom' and 'Hillside Guest Room.')

Stay here & look right down (from upstairs) & directly out at (from shore-side) the nearby waters of Lake Superior, where frequently the crashing waves of the mighty Lake offer spectacular sights & sounds.

You'll not regret additional nights at this neat resort! Guest Appreciation Coupons are applicable nearby: dining, outdoor equipment, charter fishing, neat north country shopping, golf, spa pleasures OR future reservations! GA Coupon $ amounts are substantial (more $ each successive night you add) GA coupons add up to as much as $500 for 6-night stay in busy season!

About The Owner

We're Barb & Jack, happy to meet you & muse - vicariously - that you might be thinking of enjoying our special 'home away from home' on the North Shore of Lake Superior. We may be retired, sometimes just 'tired :),' but we're fortunate we can stay active & would be pleased if you can enjoy the special wonders of Bluefin Bay Resort. We're relaxing just a bit after high-intensity careers: Barb is a long-time Registered Nurse, partly in EMT, mostly in labor & delivery. Jack's career was in the advertising business, almost entirely in his own advertising agency enterprise. We both were reared in a small-town/agricultural environment in southern Minnesota that has surely left its mark on us forever. We love family (kids, grandkids & great-grandkids!), travel, horses & mules, desert, mountains, oceans, trains, boats, hiking, Jeeping, Western music (different than 'country'!), opera, cowboy poetry, and, and, and.

Why The Owner chose Minnesota

It's easy to fall in love with this part of the country, the North Shore of Lake Superior, largest body of fresh water in the world. We've certainly been smitten. Sometimes this rugged coast is compared to the New England coast. Sometimes the nearby Sawtooth Mountains remind us of the west. The vast range of outdoor recreation opportunities -'right out the back door' - have been a huge attraction: unlimited hiking opportunities, hundreds of miles of XC trails, fishing, charming Americana in the small towns, best Alpine skiing east of the Rockies, kayaking & canoeing, on & on. And, of course, we were also attracted to the wonderful amenities of Bluefin Bay Resort, 2 pools (one outdoor & heated year 'round), 2 hot tubs (one also outdoor), and much more. Bottom line: We're glad we chose Bluefin Bay. We think you will be, too.

What makes this townhome unique

We've done our share of hiking (including backpacking some 200 miles of the famed Superior Hiking Trail & day hikes galore) ...enjoyed picnics overlooking the Lake from atop Mt. Oberg or Carlton Peak ...relaxing (on our deck, or on the rocks a few feet away) to listen to the waves of the Lake crashing (or just lapping at the shoreline) a stone's throw away ...visiting the cascading streams feeding the lake, the cauldrons of the Temperance River, Devil's Kettle on the Brule River, the spectacular double waterfall of the Caribou River ...watching the kids & grand-kids skip rocks when the Lake is quiet ...the 'Smore's sessions around the campfire ...we could go on & on.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It has been a wonderful week. Weather was better than we expected but fall along the North Shore can be full of surprises. Our second anniversary has come & gone - celebrated like our honeymoon & first anniversary. This is the best place to take a break from our busy lives & remember who each other is and why we are together. Thank you for the nice place to stay.We hope to have many more anniversary stays at Bluefin. John & Tammy
