We happened to come here for breakfast and ended up staying for 2 nights. Everyone was so hospitable, especially Alissa the hostess. All the activities are included, and staff is good at giving suggestions on what to do in the area.

Pulling in to the parking lot the resort wasn't quite what I expected from the pictures but that is usually the case. It is older than I thought but the setting is pretty. I will start out with the good points of this resort. I liked the bonfire idea even though we didn't do this it would have been fun... More

We were so unhappy with our stay here! Our friends had their wedding here (which was beautiful) but the resort insisted we stay 2 night minimum which we just couldn't afford. So the bride (since the resort was no help) said there was the lutsen mountain inn we could stay at that allowed for a one night stay. We looked... More

Fell upon Lutsen Resort on our way further north. WILL go back. Beautiful view in Lake Superior. Hiking. Canoeing. Sat by a fire on the shore. Cabin toe home was very nice and large enough to accommodate my large family(8 children), with kitchen and dining area, as well as grill and dining on the deck. Gorgeous sunset and sunrise.

nice would stay again. Liked the amenities attached with the lodge which is right on the lake shore with a river emptying into the lake. Liked the walk across the river to get to the lodge. bar, food, music, fires by the lake, s'mores all in a old lodge with tons of character but plenty of amenities, pool, shuffleboard, activities....

Having come to the Lutsen Resort with my on a family ski trip decades ago, I was anxious to return. I was not let down. I love the "old lodge" feel of this place. It's a little worn on the edges, but that kind of adds to the charm, in my opinion. The staff was very helpful, especially when it... More

This is one of our favorite places to stay on the North Shore. The ambiance is amazing. Walking into the lobby just brings immediate relaxation. Staff is attentive, rooms comfortable, scenery outstanding, restaurants good and just a very special place to enjoy the North Shore.

We were driving up Minnesota’s scenic North Shore (Highway 61). I had read about the Lutsen Resort and wanted to check it out. We made a reservation for the following night. The staff here is friendly and helpful. The check in and check out process was easy. Our room was not in the main lodge but in the Poplar River... More

Lutsen resort is a lovely, quaint hotel right on Lake Superior. There's a massive fireplace in the cozy lobby, which looks right onto the very nearby lake. Rooms are basic, as are the restaurants, but the ambiance is classic. Very nice heated indoor pool and hot tub as well.

Staying here for the first time this evening. Check in was professional and pleasant. This old resort lodge sits right on Lake Superior at the confluence of the Poplar River. I noticed they have kayaks for rent but I will not be using in spite of it being a gorgeous late April day. I chose the Lakeview King room. The... More
