Ahhh spring. The season of rebirth. The season when we (hopefully) shed our winter coats and embrace the start of a long summer. And what better way to appreciate the season than to go somewhere you can see Spring in all its budding glory? While there are many such resorts and lodges in the great state of Minnesota, few can approach either the magnificent setting nor the warm hospitality of the Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts. Surfside, Temperance Landing, and Bluefin Bay all rest along the shores of Lake Superior in the Lutsen-Tofte area, just three miles apart, and at any one of these destinations you will discover how they work to bring guests closer to the water and to each other.
If this sounds like a little slice of heaven to you, you’d be right. Bluefin Bay welcomes guests year-round to experience the wonders of Lake Superior and the chance to truly getaway from life’s pesky distractions. As spring comes around the corner, there is no better time to pack your bags and spend a few days on a quintessential Minnesota vacation. And if you’re worried at all about breaking the bank--don’t be! Bluefin Bay has an absolutely incredible offer for the spring. Until June 16, 2016, you can stay three nights for the price of two. If math isn’t your specialty, that means that if you stay two days, the third is absolutely free. Howie Mandel of Deal or No Deal would advise you to take that deal, I’m sure.
Once you’ve arrived, you’re sure to be blown away by the stunning natural surroundings, all just waiting for you to explore. The north shore of beautiful Lake Superior is flush with fragrant pines and majestic waterfalls. The waterfalls in particular are considered to be some of the most beautiful in the state, and spring around the resort is often referred to as “Waterfall Season.” Activities Director Alex Truax instructs all travelers and outdoor enthusiasts alike that, "Bluefin Bay is conveniently located near many of the best waterfall hikes on the North Shore, including the Temperance, Cross, Caribou, Onion, and Cascade Rivers, and a short trip from several other favorites as well. The waterfalls are at their best in the Spring as all the snow and ice from winter melts away." Some of the highlights include Devil’s Kettle Falls and the aptly named High Falls of the Pigeon River, which at 120 feet, is the highest waterfall in Minnesota.
That’s just the beginning of the incredible activities Bluefin Bay offers. "Our guests love that we offer so many complimentary activities with their stay. They can take our bikes out on the 10+ miles of the Gitchi-Gami State Trail between Tofte and Lutsen, go out with our guides to various popular hiking spots, take advantage of our pools, or just relax by the campfire and make s'mores" says Lodging Manager Michele Scudieri. This wealth of options can seem daunting at first, but once guests sink their teeth into the fun, they don’t want to let go.
If you want to experience the immaculate surroundings in a more active way, go out and hike one of the dozens of nearby scenic trails. The Superior Hiking Trail is famous for its undeniable beauty and fantastic route along the shorelines of the eponymous Lake, while the previously mentioned Gitchi-Gami State Trail attracts bikers from all over the country. But if relaxation is what you seek, relax in Bluefin Bay’s signature outdoor heated pool or bubbling hot tub overlooking the lake. With an indoor pool, whirlpool, and saunas also available, you won't lack for option when it comes to spoiling yourself.
So what are you waiting for? With approximately a billion reasons to visit, there’s no reason you shouldn’t plan your next spring trip to Bluefin Bay Resort.
