Dining on Minnesota’s Gunflint Trail is filled with its share of s’mores and shore lunches, to be sure. But come dinner time, we lay out our finest in four courses, each with regionally grown, naturally raised, wild caught ingredients.

Or join us for simpler lodge fare: family-friendly pasta night;  hot soup or chili to warm a cool afternoon;  a steaming mug of rich hot chocolate with maple cookies; or a simple glass of wine or beer by the fieplace.

Fine dining available on select nights during winter and summer seasons.
