Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Bespoke, intimate weddings are the forte at this collection of three full-service resorts on Lake Superior’s stunning north shore. With dining, a spa, and countless all-season activities, it’s a fantastic way to spend a wedding weekend…and a popular spot to return for anniversaries and “babymoons.”
  • Soak in the unspoiled, rustic beauty of Tofte Cove as you say “I do” at water’s edge, or exchange vows on the Beach Patio, where the resort’s iconic lakewalk meets the waves. Two airy, modern private dining rooms tucked inside Bluefin Grill are available for stylish receptions.
  • Temperance Landing, Bluefin Bay, and Surfside resorts each offer a huge array of lodging options, from traditional hotel-style rooms to family-sized townhomes. Some of our faves? The charming log homes, which boast oversized stone fireplaces and private decks overlooking the lake.
