Thanksgiving week is here! The winter holidays are upon us and that means it’s time to start holiday planning. Why not begin by planning a special tradition with family and friends at Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts? We’re making it easy this year by extending our most popular special over the pre-Christmas holiday weekend! That’s right, stay three nights Dec. 20-24 and you’ll receive one of those nights FREE (midweek night is free). This Gales Special offer is available anytime in December through the 24th. Escape the holiday hustle and bustle with a getaway to the North Shore!
It’s also time to start your holiday shopping. This holiday, give a gift that will keep on giving long after it is unwrapped. Gift cards can be purchased in any dollar amount and used for lodging, restaurants, gift shops and the Waves of Superior Spa. Gift cards are mailed within a few days of placing your order and each card comes in special packaging with a place for a personal message.
It’s official! The Lutsen Mountains ski season has begun. This past weekend marked the beginning of the 2019-2020 season with continued weekend only hours through December 8th. After that, they will be open daily starting on December 13th. Up here in Cook County, we had some nice early season snow and ideal temps for snowmaking. It looks like it is going to be an excellent winter for skiing on Minnesota’s North Shore!
Stay up to date with conditions on the Lutsen Mountains website. Check out their live cam to see the current conditions. Not to mention it’s a great way to spend some time daydreaming about your next North Shore winter vacation! New this year, Lutsen Mountains has added a radio frequency RFID ticketing system which will offer greater convenience for skiers and new lodging packaging opportunities.
Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts is the perfect home base for your skiing and snowboarding adventure! Take advantage of our Ski and Stay Packages for the best deals. We offer FREE daily shuttles to and from the base of the mountain, frustration-free equipment rental at our neighboring Sawtooth Outfitters, and a variety of can’t-be-beat Ski & Stay Packages.
See you on the slopes!
For the past 12 years, we’ve been welcoming women and their daughters, sisters, cousins, and girlfriends for our Annual Girls Gone North Weekend at Bluefin Bay Resorts. This event is truly one of our favorites! Not only do we have the opportunity to host, entertain, pamper and cater to our female guests, but we CELEBRATE women and their unique bonds.
The highlights of this year’s Girls Gone North event: Fabulous new cocktail concoctions paired with the perfect holiday appetizer recipes, beautiful silk scarf creations, plenty of outdoor exercise, yoga, and, of course, wine and laughter. About the only thing that varies greatly at our annual event is the weather – and this year winter was just arriving with cold temps and light snow as we launched into the festivities.
Special thanks to all the lovely ladies that joined us this year! Thanks to our media sponsor, Minnesota Monthly Magazine, Gina Hollman of J. Carver Distillery in Waconia, and Julie and Signy Arthur of Wif-man weaving for helping to make our 2019 program a hit.
If you’re not familiar with our annual Girls Gone North event, it’s always the second weekend of November – next year Nov. 13-15, 2020. We offer lodging discounts for two and three-night stays. Be sure when you check out the event that you register under the Girls Gone North special offer.
Here’s a photo gallery from this past weekend’s event. Ladies, thanks for coming!
Mark your calendars for Girls Gone North #13 on Nov. 13-15, 2020.
The days have gotten shorter, the temps have started to drop and the holiday season is almost upon us. It’s that time of year when we add those extra layers, snuggle in with loved ones and make plans to gather with friends and family.
November is a great month to witness the Gales of November on Lake Superior. 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.
When you stay three nights or more during Quiet Time at any of our resorts — Bluefin Bay, Surfside or Temperance Landing — we offer a Gales Special with one night FREE — our treat! Offer is valid Now – Dec. 24, 2019
Stay four nights over Thanksgiving Weekend to receive one night FREE.
We invite you to spend the Thanksgiving Holiday with us! Cozy upscale accommodations, outdoor adventures (including skiing at Lutsen Mountains!), and plenty of time to relax and watch the gales roll in on Lake Superior.
In addition, let us do the work in the kitchen as you enjoy a festive Thanksgiving Buffet at the Bluefin Grille on Thursday, Nov 28!
