Resort Amenities

Soak it all in

When you’re a guest at the Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts, you’ll understand why — just like Lake Superior herself — we have yet to be upstaged. We frame your North Shore vacation with warm and friendly hospitality, in an environment that nurtures relaxation and escape, and with all the upscale resort amenities you desire.

While our resorts share some common amenities – such as complimentary outdoor equipment and participation in resort hosted activities, our restaurants and Waves of Superior Spa – specific recreational amenities vary at each resort, so check out the links below to find the right fit for you.
