Cascade Lodge has been around for a long time. Each cabin is different and can accommodate large groups or individuals. I have not stayed in the lodge, but I have stayed in several of the cabins. The cabins are perfect for a weekend getaway or longer. Some have small kitchenettes and most offer a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Dogs...

Reviewed 17 May 2016

We stayed in a comfy cabin with a bedroom, sitting area, and kitchen area. It had everything we needed. The lodge has a warm, inviting fireplace and downstairs is a game room.--Ping pong is always fun! The hiking trails are enjoyable and the scenery spectacular. We also enjoyed the on-site restaurant and live music in the pub on Saturday evening....

This charming lodge was built 90 years ago and is in great shape. The great room boasts a massive stone fireplace, comfortable seating, game table, a piano, games, books, etc. Cascade Lodge is nestled in the midst of Cascade River State Park with many wooded trails and breath-taking waterfalls. Cozy cabins are tucked into the woods beside the waterfalls and...

The rooms are nice and look better than they did in the photos & there was no noise to speak of at all. The room I stayed in also had a fantastic view of Lake Superior. Plus the restaurant they have on site makes some excellent Swedish Pancakes! It's a 10 minute drive from Grand Marais, but it was nice...

Cascade Lodge has been a landmark on the North Shore of Minnesota for many years. They offer rooms in the lodge, a small motel, and individual cabins. The cabins are comfortable and retain the rustic log cabin charm providing a real up north feel. The staff is very friendly and goes the extra mile to each guests stay memorable. If...

My teenage daughter and I stayed in cabin 2 for 3 nights during her Spring break. I had been to the restaurant in years past but had not stayed at the lodge. The cabin, although quite small (it was built in 1920) was clean and comfortable and had a nice stone fireplace. You can hear and see the creek which...

Thanks for your kind review and for choosing to spend some time with your daughter at Cascade Lodge! Just for informational purposes, Cabins 1,2,3 and 11 were all built in 1927. They are the only original buildings left and this year celebrate their 90th birthday! Thanks also for becoming another repeat guest. Michael O'Phelan, Owner

This was my first visit to Cascade Lodge, I spent one night in cabin 5A and I'm already anticipating my next visit. The room was cozy incorporating the use of local décor. The room and grounds were well maintained. Shoulder seasons are tricky but all the needs of comfort were thoughtfully provided. I didn't need the extra heater or fan...

We stayed 4 nights in cabin #6, which has a queen BR, kitchen, and LR with fireplace. It is in the center of a lot of other cabins, so I'm not sure how it would be if all of the other cabins were full, but it was great for us, as there were very few others there during this off-season....

Thanks for taking the time to give us this detailed review. I am sure it will be helpful to other visitors to Cascade Lodge. We keep track of mattress complaints and I will look at the situation to see if it needs replacement. Hope to see you again sometime. Michael O'Phelan Owner

My wife and I stopped for the corn beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's Day. It was among the best I've ever had. The corn beef was excellent, the vegetables were well cooked and not soggy. Had a great Irish band playing. Four or five local beers on tap. All at a reasonable price. I can't wait to stop again...
