A North Shore Thanksgiving

Treat yourself to a long weekend of upscale accommodations, outdoor adventures, or skiing at Lutsen Mountains (they’re opening on November 19th!). Also, you’ll have plenty of time to relax and watch the gales roll in on Lake Superior. This is the perfect weekend to get away and celebrate the start of the holiday season, whether you want to slow down and stay cozy or keep active and invigorated by outdoor activities. Of course, we recommend making time for it all! Browse accommodations and book your stay here.

November is Here. Save and Celebrate!

Gales of NovemberThe 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.

Here are a few other reasons we wouldn’t want to be anywhere but on Lake Superior’s North Shore during November and the Thanksgiving holiday:

  • THE GALES OF NOVEMBER! Wave watching in November and December when the gales whip up the lake is a favorite activity by guests and locals alike. 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. Take advantage of the Gales Offer – stay three nights and get one FREE!
  • LUTSEN MOUNTAINS IS OPENING! The early snowfalls and lower temps have been optimal for the snowmakers on the ski hill. Lutsen Mountains is currently planning to open for skiing on November 17th! Combine your Thanksgiving festivities with a little skiing! Stay tuned to the Lutsen Mountains website for ski hill updates.
  • HOLIDAY SEASON KICK-OFF! We get excited about the fun local activities and events that happen in our cozy North Shore community this time of year. Countless outdoor activities and cozy indoor relaxation are high on everyone’s list but there are also some fun special events and festivals that you won’t want to miss. Find family fun and joy at events like the Oh Ole Night in Grand Marais on November 23rd and Light Up Lutsen on November 24th.
