Refresh, relax, restore, reconnect… this is what awaits your arrival at Grand Superior Lodge on Lake Superior.

Our grand and luxurious authentic log resort hugs the shore of this inland sea amongst aged pines and mature birch and aspen. It is classic “Northern Minnesota” in its north woods location and all of the cabins, log homes, lodge rooms and lakeside suites surround you in a charmingly warm, north woods décor. But don’t think rustic…you’ll find all modern conveniences here.
