Stayed here during the New Years Eve weekend. A very nice gentleman, Randy, helped me out with the booking over the phone however a different older fellow checked us in and was less than gracious at the front desk. The Condo was as seen in the photos online and spacious however only really had one decent bed. The pullout couch... More

We stayed in the condos with three families and had a wonderful time. The lodge was fantastic and the pool/hot tub was so great to come back to after a day of skiing or hiking. We had dinner in the pub and the food was good. Service was just ok. The front desk was extremely friendly and helpful to guide... More

We stayed at lutsen resort for our honeymoon mid summer. Beautiful area and quite cool considering the heat of summer. Was great being right on lake superior. If looking for activities, not a lot to do in summer months aside from hiking & sight seeing. We did hop over to neighboring resorts/towns for dinner some nights and something to do.... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Cliff House Townhomes. Fantastic stay overall and easily accommodated our crew. Everything was clean and plenty of kichenware. The staff at the main lodge/reservation area was super helpful when checking out "free" snowshoes. Beautiful main lodge.

We had a three night reservation at Lutsen resort, but left after two nights due to loud music from the kitchen below. It was so loud for so long at some point we just said "Enough!" Things were vibrating in our bathroom from the volume. Phone calls to the front desk were to no avail. Every time we called, they... More

I enjoyed the view, you could see mountains, forests, animals, and lake all in one look, The food was awesome, I would recommend the Swedish Crème. The tours were great we went cross country skiing and had a wonderful experience.

Quaint is what they say on the website, and yes it's quaint and old fashioned. The fireplace is always going, and you can play checkers in the lobby. We had two rooms on the 2nd floor, and you hear everyone in the hall, above you, and below you. The rooms are full of wood, small, and tiny bathrooms. We got... More

Booked 4 day ski trip. Stayed in Poplar Condos. Room was clean but customer service poor. Nothing restocked despite 4 day stay! Food at main restaurant was terrible. Staff walk by you like you don't exist. We ended up going down the road to Bluefin Grill which was 10x better for same price. Typical overpriced resort getting away with mediocre... More

Spent 2 nights in a Cliffhouse Townhouse for our anniversary. We had a 3 bedroom 3 bathroom townhouse and friends came with. There is a full kitchen with all the dishes and utensils that you would need, with a full size refridgerator. Also downstairs was a room with 2 queens, a full bath and dining room, living room and deck/porch.... More

WE CAME BACK TO LUTSEN for a visit after overseas living for 20 years...we found the charm and nature of the Lutsen Resort TIMELESS. The setting among the trees, right on the lakeshore is the same as ever..the Main Lodge has been updated, but still it is the Scandinavian-American vision of a wilderness lodge. Also now Lutsen has new lodging... More
