Bluefin Bay Wins Best of the Lake!
Forgive us, but we need to toot our own horn for a moment, and more importantly, say thank you to our fans and guests.
Bluefin Bay on Lake Superior has been named 2018 Best of the Lake in the overnight lodging category, as sponsored by Lake Superior Magazine. The magazine’s “Best of” award covers all lodging options from Duluth to the Canadian border and, more importantly, it’s a readers’ choice award. This is the second year in a row Bluefin Bay was chosen the readers favorite in this category!
Awards like this one – where fans and guests vote for their favorite or the best – mean the most to us because our guests’ loyalty and confidence is the best barometer of our success creating memorable vacation experiences. So, THANK YOU to all who voted for us – especially our Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts guests for your ongoing loyalty, comments and kudos over the years.
We are also excited about a few other winners from our neck of the woods.
Best Waterfall in Minnesota: Gooseberry Falls in Two Harbors and High Falls of the Pigeon River in Grand Portage

Best ‘Locally Made’ Store: The Lake Superior Trading Post, Sivertson’s, and Joynes Ben Franklin – all in Grand Marais!
