My wife and I stayed at Lutsen Resort in October 2014 and had a wonderful time. We found the resort to be very clean, relaxing, and accommodating. The beach in front of the resort was a great place to relax and was very scenic. The short trail next to the resort was also fun to walk and provided nice views... More

Thank you to the staff at Lutsen Resort for helping our family have a delicious, allergen-free dinner on New Year's day. I coordinated with the F&B director via phone before-hand and the chef came out personally to ask a specific question after ordering. Our server, Rob, was patient and very accommodating also. The food was excellent and it quickly became... More

We had reserved a non-lake view room but were surprised to get a lake view room since the place wasn't full. The view every morning was spectacular. I'm an early riser, unlike my fiance so I found the lobby a great place to snuggle up with a book while he slept in. It was convenient to Grand Marais and Duluth... More

A nice beach for the bonfire. Canoes available for Lake Superior or numerous inland lakes. Fish Lake Superior, or nearby rivers and lakes. Hike or snowshoe the many... More

We stayed for a couple of nights as a couples getaway. We loved hiking around and the scenery, very quiet and peaceful. Lake views are spectacular. Room is very nondescript and mostly clean, stain on backside of comforter and dirt in corners of bathroom were are turnoff. Fireplace is more for a visual then for warmth and is pretty loud... More

The good: our king size bed in the lodge was really big and comfortable. The Bon fires on the beach at night were awesome. The pubs food was really good and the service we got from the bartender was excellent. The location is perfect for sight seeing up and down the north shore. The bad. The coffee!!! Serious you guys?!?!... More

Thanks for taking the time to share some feedback with us about our resort. I appreciate the kind words about the resort location, dining and the beach bonfires and am glad you enjoyed yourself. I apologize regarding the early morning vacuuming. That is not the normal protocol and I am sorry that you were disturbed. I have shared your experience... More

Warm, comfortable, a little misleading. While we had a lakeview, we also had a view that overlooked the next room. Probably hit the lodge at the wrong time, it was just the end of summer and beginning of fall. We didn't go kayaking. But the service was top quality. The food was good. Their beef wellington was not the beef... More

We were greeted by friendly staff and our full 1 bedroom, full dining, kitchen and living room condo was beautiful - loved the gas fireplace. PROS: the lake view was superb- sunrise and sunset were a delight to view from the full bedroom, the deck, the living room or the kitchen. Very quiet, peaceful atmosphere. Well maintained. The king size... More

We stayed in one of the modern condos. Very comfortable with nice view and very warm gas fireplace. Loved the old lodge with the warm wood fireplace on cool October evenings as well as the dining room. Enjoyed diner and a buffet breakfast. Will certainly return.

While overall our experience at Lutsen Resort was positive and I would probably go back, I do have a few qualms that I thought I would mention: PROS: -Neat historic lodge -Nice condo, loved the easy-on fireplace -Lots of amenities, many of which we didn't even have time to take advantage of -I can't complain about S'mores on the beach...
