Nestled deep within the wilderness of the Voyageurs National Park, at the juncture of Namakan and Rainy Lakes, stands the Kettle Falls Hotel—a historic treasure that has witnessed over a century of adventure, tranquility, and natural beauty.

A Brief History

Built between 1910 and 1913, the Kettle Falls Hotel has a storied past. Imagine the early explorers, fur traders, and loggers who once navigated these pristine waters. Today, it remains the only lodging operating inside Voyageurs National Park, accessible only by water. As you approach its weathered wooden facade, you step into a bygone era—a time when simplicity and connection with nature were paramount.
