Notch Corner


Like a 3,340 square mile theme park. Only real.



Cook County is the essence of what a vacation is meant to be: an escape from the ordinary. A much needed break from the everyday and the other 50 weeks in the year.

This is the only place where you can enjoy Lake Superior – the world’s largest freshwater lake, visit Minnesota’s tallest mountain peaks and highest waterfall, and enjoy its longest and most scenic biking trails.

It’s the gateway to a million acres of pristine Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. It’s the folklore and natural wonder of the 57-mile Gunflint Trail. It’s a voyage into the rich history, art and culture that built a region and define its people. And, it’s the tip of Minnesota’s Arrowhead and the northernmost run of legendary Scenic Highway 61.

Cook County, Minnesota, includes the communities of Lutsen, Tofte and Schroeder, Grand Marais, the Gunflint Trail, and Grand Portage. It is the beginning of an unforgettable and extraordinary adventure.
