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

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!!!
