The Gales Special Starts Now!

October 21, 2019

Witnessing the gales on Lake Superior is one of the iconic experiences on Minnesota’s North Shore. Late October, November, and December are the best times to see the biggest wave show as the cold, dry air from the north meets the moist, warm air from the Gulf.

Don’t miss our special lodging offer! When nature puts on a show, you want a front-row seat and there is no better place to watch the gales roll in than from the Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts. Stay three nights at any of our resorts (Bluefin Bay, Surfside or Temperance Landing) on the Gales Special, and one of those nights of Lake Superior splendor is our treat!  This great offer is valid now through December 24, 2019.

In addition to nature’s show, enjoy fun indoor and outdoor activities during your stay. Sign-up for a complimentary resort activity like a variety of guided hikes, yoga, winery shuttles, and a Saturday Kids Club. Enjoy resort amenities like indoor and an outdoor (heated!) pool, nightly bonfires with s’mores, board games and movie rentals. Once the snow flies we also offer complimentary rentals of snowshoes, cross-country skis, ice trekkers for hiking, ice skates, and hockey equipment.

Fall Color Report: October 8 – The Bluefin Bay Properties

October 8, 2019

The beautiful autumn golds have taken over the landscape along the Lake Superior shoreline. Blue skies and the dark blue lake are the perfect contrast against yellows, golds, and the dark green evergreens. We’re at 85-100% fall color in all areas of the North Shore. Many leaves are still hanging on the trees but they will be dropping in the next couple of weeks.

Today we toured around the Bluefin Bay Family of Resort properties to capture the fall views. This time of year, you will never miss a wave OR fall colors from any of the resort properties!

Place it on Lake Superior’s North Shore and you’ve got the perfect destination for family vacations, a couples’ retreat or friends’ getaway. Temperance Landing is nestled on the edge of Lake Superior and set against the backdrop of the Sawtooth Mountains in Schroeder, MN.
