Fantastic trip. The cabin was amazing. I would highly recommend it.
Our father/Son snowmobile group had an awesome time at the Reel Inn Lodge.
The Lodge was exactly as described. Very neat and tidy. We had all the needed appliances and dishes to cook breakfast each morning. Thanks for a great stay...
The place is a jewel, pristine and cozy, the weather was unbelievable nice, the food in town is amazing.
I will be back for fall color change!
Very clean and well situated
We really enjoyed our stay at the Reel Inn. The place is well stocked for a large group and very clean. Plenty of dishes, cups and utensils. There were even 2 refrigerators. The fire pit is great and my dad even caught some fish in the river. A lot of people can fit in to this place! The only downfall that I could see would be a lack of privacy. For us, all one extended family, it wasn't a problem but for a group that wants separate bedrooms this might not fit. The 2 bedrooms upstairs are really 2 halves of a gorgeous loft. There is a private bath upstairs as well as another vanity with sink in each loft space; so there was no fighting for space to get ready! I did notice a screen to put up for privacy, if needed. Matt and Holly really thought of everything! Thanks for opening your home up to us and hopefully we'll see you again!
I am very picky about the cleanliness of the places we rent, and I have to say that the Reel Inn Lodge was one of the cleanest! There was absolutely no "yuck" factor...all the sheets, bedding, and towels were newer & clean; the bathrooms were sparkling and well stocked; there were no hidden dust balls in the corners. The decor was very well done--a true cabin feel. My kids enjoyed the free access to the bikes & canoes--a perfect activity while I was preparing dinner. We had a wonderful stay!
Clean, well provisioned and excellent location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lodge was stocked with everything you could think of. We just had to bring ourselves pick up groceries and we were set for the week. Location was great as you are right on the river and only a couple blocks from arguably the best swimming spot in the area, right at the mouth of the Au Train river into Lake Superior, clear, clean and sandy about 5 foot deep in the middle so perfect for kids and a deeper spot just a bit upstream perfect for jumping off the bridge. Hiking distance to one waterfall and a short drive to dozens more. The audio/video setup was a little hard to use. My kids couldn't figure out how to turn on the TV and watch a movie on their own, but if that is the biggest issue we have nothing to complain about. We weren't there to watch TV anyway. We loved the stay.
