Overview:

Whether you like to sleep under the stars or cuddle up in a
cozy cabin that includes a kitchen, bathroom and gas
fireplace for those cool evenings; Voyageur Canoe Outfitters
& Resort offers something for everyone. Voyageur Canoe
Outfitters is a year round Gunflint Trail Resort located at
the end of the Gunflint Trail, adjacent to the Boundary
Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Located on the Seagull River
and Saganaga Lake, Voyageur Canoe Outfitters Resort has all
the amenities including: Lakeside cabins with fireplace,
fully equipped kitchens, whirlpool tubs and one to two
bedrooms. Gourmet dining, excellent fishing, family
activities, and more can be expected!

Our Riverside Cabin is a lovely two-bedroom, modern cabin
right on the bank of the Seagull River. Paddler and Angler
are two-bedroom lodge hideaways whereas Black Bear Cabin is
a cozy one-bedroom cabin set back in the woods on a piece of
our property only accessible by boat or canoe. Water's Edge
Cabin is our spacious and private vacation rental located
one-half of a mile from Voyageur on Saganaga Lake. For a
rustic experience try out our two cabins situated on
Canadian islands: Red Pine Big Timber and Red Pine Point,
located by boat only.

Picture beautiful, spacious, one to two bedroom cabins;
fully equipped kitchens and airy, light-filled living rooms
with gas stoves (cozy on cool evenings) and comfortable
furnishings with rustic, Northwood's touches. Imagine
spending quality time conversing with friends or family
while relaxing upon your patio with day-long sun exposure
and lovely lake breezes. Now see yourself taking an evening
stroll to a nearby fire pit for a delicious snack of
s'mores... if you're patient, you might even experience a
sighting of our Voyageur pet fox! Now picture yourself
swimming or fishing from your dock, or maybe choosing to
rent one of our boats for a day filled with island exploring
and even more fishing. You are invited to take a
complimentary canoe trip down the Seagull River and lose
yourself in the lingering morning fog, or simply go for a
short walk to the nearby Chik-Wauk Museum for an educational
experience, followed up with a gourmet dinner at our lodge.
