Guest Appreciation Coupons

We’ll be making every effort to enhance your North Shore experience in many ways. As our way of thanking you for staying with us, we reward each party with valuable Customer Appreciation Coupons, which are redeemable at selected, highly popular North Shore destinations.

First, for recreational equipment — Many resorts in the Lutsen/Tofte area add a “service fee” to the checkout bill — some are currently near 7%! This fee is one of the ways a resort helps to cover the costs of maintaining “free” recreational amenities, such as canoes, kayaks, bikes, skis and other expenses. No service fee is added to your bill as a by-owner rental guest. But it means you are asked to avoid using rental equipment from Bluefin Bay Resort. Therefore, we’re doing our best to offset this limitation by offering you Guest Appreciation Coupons, which are redeemable for rentals of such items.

So for routine recreational amenities, we've made arrangements for you to use these high-value Coupons toward rentals of bikes, canoes, kayaks and more at Sawtooth Outfitters, located across the highway from Bluefin's Guest Services building. Sawtooth Outfitters offers many other exclusive services and options as well.

If none of that fits your interests & abilities — We also offer additional Coupon options including fine dining, charter fishing on Lake Superior, great spa-experience options, shopping and golfing. We’ve carefully selected and screened these businesses; we’re confident each of them can enhance your North Shore experience.

For winter fun: Sawtooth Outfitters offers rentals of high-quality cross-country & downhill ski gear, even better than ‘up the hill.’ Other ideas: Use our Coupons for a dogsled ride with the great folks at Stoney Creek Sled Dogs. Or check out Tofte Charters’ special service for guided ice fishing on the best inland lakes.

Click here for a preview look at an example Coupon sheet ; tailored example items – matching your actual booked stay – will be mailed to you upon receipt of a deposit, time permitting. Your actual Coupons will be in a Check-In Packet for you.

We’re committed to making your entire stay enjoyable and valuable – through the extra comforts and options we offer in our select Bluefin Bay homes, and through the offerings of our favorite merchants.
