Even for those who are coming after Labor Day weekend, we still offer guided hiking, biking, yoga, kid's activities, agate hunting, and campfire and s'mores. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Welcome to the blog of the Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts
We're thrilled to bring back our Girls Gone North essay contest where you can earn a FREE weekend at our Girls Gone North event at the Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts for you and your gal pals. Girls Gone North Weekend is Nov. 11-13, 2011 and just like last year we expect to fill up.
You can WIN a trip for you and your girlfriends by entering our Girls Gone North essay contest. It's easy to enter. Write a colorful and creative essay of no more than 250 words describing why you and your girls need a weekend to break free and let loose. Be sassy, be sappy, be silly or bold – whatever your voice, just convince us with your creativity – and a healthy dose of humor never hurts – why you’re the one that most deserves to get away with the girls. Submit entries by midnight October 2, 2011. Check full contest rules here.
If you haven't made your reservation for Girls Gone North Weekend yet, you'd better do so. Last year we filled up. We are again offering our 3 for 2 special (stay three nights and receive one free) at any of our resorts - Bluefin Bay, Surfside on Lake Superior and Temperance Landing. Or, stay two nights and receive 25% off. Just ask for the Girls Gone North Special when you make your reservation.
Boys beware: This is no couples retreat. It isn’t romantic or cuddly or seductive. No, Girls Gone North Weekend is all about women – the sassy parts, the sexy parts, the I-just-need-a-massage-and-a-good-glass-of-wine parts. Simply put, it’s all about just being a girl in the company of girls.
