My husband, my 3-year-old and I stayed in a Poplar Condo from July 18-20. The location is perfect. Just minutes away is the Lutsen ski area, where you can go on the alpine slide and cable cars. We got the most amazing views of the Sawtooth Mountains and the shoreline of Lake Superior. The fooday at the restaurant was really... More

So much to do here. We did some sea kayaking and fly-fishing. Great food and beach. The don't have air conditioning, but as cool as it is by the lake you don't need it... Rooms and lodge are a bit dark, but it is historic and charming.

There are many things to love about Lutsen Resort. The lodge just drips with charm, as do other parts of the property--the beach front fires at night, the bridges over the rapids of the Poplar river, the walkway up to the popular river condos. But in our two night stay we experienced a few negatives that kept it from earning... More

3rd stay a Lutsen Resort. Stayed in Poplar River Condos, previously stayed in Log Cabin. Both are great depending on style you like. Resort is great as always, grounds are the best in the area. We love the little things such as the shuffle board court, and the general feel of the beach and covered bridges. Food is very good.... More

We traveled from the East Coast for a wedding at Lutsen Resort. The long trip was worth it for the unique North Shore experience and hospitality. The weather changed by the moment, creating beautiful views and memorable moments. The staff anticipated every need and responded well. The Cliffhouse townhomes allow for a comfortable gathering of friends and family. They were... More

This has got to be one of the single most amazing places to stay in America. Wow! The condo/suit/rooms were fantastic. The food was breathtakingly delicious. The staff was Five Star all the way. The fire pit on the beach of Lake Superior made for an unforgettable evening. Can't wait to get back there!

Family vacation to the North Shore. Booked several months in advance in order to get a lake view at this historic lodge and very glad I did (Does cost more but I thought very much worth it). The Front Desk attendants were very friendly and so was the night security man (Nice to see that). Rustic and warm with the... More

We were here for a wedding and found the Lutsen Resort to be really pleasant. We opted for a garden room since we stayed 4 nights but I would definitely upgrade to a water view room next time! The garden rooms are nothing to write home about, but ocean view are great. Overall a really quant, charming place to stay... More

What sold us on the resort were the added activities at no charge, but only two activities were available in early June, one being a hike on the Superior River Cascade Trail which there was no cost for where we accessed it from Hwy. 61 (so could have done on our own). We really enjoyed the kayaking, but the hour... More

my wife and I truly enjoy the ambiance and history of this beautiful resort. The main lodge sits right on the shores of Lake Superior and the mouth of the Poplar river. This resort offers several lodging options from townhomes to rooms in the historic main lodge. This resort also offers several different seasonal activities for guests. From kayaking,snowshoeing and... More
