My dad and I stayed here on a father daughter ski trip and we couldn't have been happier. We loved our cozy, cabin like room. The views of the lake were breathtaking (I think we talked about it at least five time a day) and the live music, fireplace and accommodating staff made it all that much better!

I love the North Shore during the transition from winter to spring. The Sea Villas were a great place to base our vacation out of. Note that the Sea Villas are privately owned as condos and timeshares, but are managed and rented out by Lutsen Resort on behalf of their owners when the owners are not around. This is likely...

We stayed at Sea Villa at Lutsen Resort which is a few mins drive from the main resort for 4 nights. We got the deal from the stay and ski package. We had to get the key from the main resort because the guest services desk wasn't open. And the receptionist my husband dealt was not the friendliest sort. When... More

What could be more romantic than a log cabin with wood burning stove?. How about the sound of crashing waves ? If you stay here make sure to ask about the cozy 2 bedroom real log cabins. They are hidden away and have large decks overlooking the water. Plus an easy stroll down to the lodge for dinner or live... More

I have been to Lutsen resort probably 10-15 times. The drive from the twin cities is not too bad, and Duluth is a perfect pit-stop. Lutsen is always gorgeous, from fall, to spring and every season in between. Lutsen Resort has a wide array of places to stay. You can stay at the small lodge rooms, or in the modern... More

I loved our condo - nice and quiet and exactly the room we needed for the price (king bed, poplar condos, single room). Loved the fireplace and view of the lake. Small things though.... Plastic cups only in the room, no wine glass or silverware in the mini bar. Poor maid service in which the bed was kinda made. At... More

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your lodging and fireplace as well as the view. If we missed the daily housekeeping service I sincerely apologize, It is personally embarrassing and certainly not in keeping with our commitment to guest service. I'm glad to see that you will return and try a larger lodging style as they have... More

Was lucky enough to be able to visit here again. As usual winter activities were available and shuttles to those activities quickly available. The food at the Restaurant and Pub was excellent. The service throughout this establishment was excellent, as usual. Everyone was friendly, conversations were friendly and frequent. I enjoy this historic place to visit, the wonderful large wood...

We took the drive up from Minneapolis to Ski Lutsen and do some family bonding after Christmas. The Resort was fantastic. It was rustic but well staffed and in excellent shape. The staff was wonderful. They helped set up a massage for my wife and ferried my daughter and I back and forth to the slopes sometimes at a moments... More

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
