About the property

2 bedroom wilderness cabin with lake view, comfortably sleeps 6

Tuscarora Lodge and Canoe Outfitters provides a peaceful setting for guests in our six lakeside housekeeping cabins. We are the only private property on Round Lake, giving our guests unique access to northern Minnesota’s pristine canoeing, hiking and skiing trails from our resort. Tuscarora is the perfect place to launch your next North Woods vacation whether you prefer deck chairs or canoe seats!

Tuscarora guests chose us for our friendly staff, our knowledge of the woods, and our attention. We’ll point out remote areas for wildlife viewing, favorite hiking trails, and the hot spots for walleye, smallmouth bass, lake trout and northern pike. Our base is conveniently located 1 mile off the Gunflint Trail. Our remote location, farther into the wilderness than most people ever get, also provides our guests with relaxing facilities within Superior National Forest.

Please explore what Cabin 3 has to offer and be sure to check out our website for more cabins, amenities, and cabin specials!

Why Ada Igoe and Andy McDonnell chose Northeast

We grew up in Grand Marais and after going away from college, we knew the Gunflint Trail and Grand Marais would always be home. We chose Tuscarora because of its beautiful grounds with towering white pines and its quiet, remote location, surrounded by Superior National Forest. We feel so lucky to be able to share this special place with you.

We had a great time at Tuscarora. The cabin was much better than expected.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. What a quiet, peaceful stay! We caught lots of bass off the dock and a few from the canoe. The cabin was much better than I expected from the pics and loaded with everything in the kitchen you could need.

It was our 1st trip to the boundary waters area and we picked the right spot...worth the drive from MSP!

Excellent accomodations and hospitable staff

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in cabin #5 at Tuscarora Lodge. This cabin was perfect for 6 adults. It was clean, the kitchen was fully equipped with new dishes, pots, and utensils. We were even welcomed with a loaf of freshly baked bread on the kitchen table. The resort is beautiful, quiet and close to lots of hiking and wildlife. We ventured into the BWCA for day trips, but they will also outfit you to go on trail for several days. Highly recommend staying here if you want to experience the BWCA and the Gunflint Trail without a tent!
