nice would stay again. Liked the amenities attached with the lodge which is right on the lake shore with a river emptying into the lake. Liked the walk across the river to get to the lodge. bar, food, music, fires by the lake, s'mores all in a old lodge with tons of character but plenty of amenities, pool, shuffleboard, activities....

Having come to the Lutsen Resort with my on a family ski trip decades ago, I was anxious to return. I was not let down. I love the "old lodge" feel of this place. It's a little worn on the edges, but that kind of adds to the charm, in my opinion. The staff was very helpful, especially when it... More

This is one of our favorite places to stay on the North Shore. The ambiance is amazing. Walking into the lobby just brings immediate relaxation. Staff is attentive, rooms comfortable, scenery outstanding, restaurants good and just a very special place to enjoy the North Shore.

We were driving up Minnesota’s scenic North Shore (Highway 61). I had read about the Lutsen Resort and wanted to check it out. We made a reservation for the following night. The staff here is friendly and helpful. The check in and check out process was easy. Our room was not in the main lodge but in the Poplar River... More

Lutsen resort is a lovely, quaint hotel right on Lake Superior. There's a massive fireplace in the cozy lobby, which looks right onto the very nearby lake. Rooms are basic, as are the restaurants, but the ambiance is classic. Very nice heated indoor pool and hot tub as well.

Staying here for the first time this evening. Check in was professional and pleasant. This old resort lodge sits right on Lake Superior at the confluence of the Poplar River. I noticed they have kayaks for rent but I will not be using in spite of it being a gorgeous late April day. I chose the Lakeview King room. The... More

If you are making the beautiful trip along the north shore, you really need to stop and stay at least one night at Lutsen Resort. They have a lot of properties to choose from. Or you can stay in their beautiful lodge. The restaurant is top notch. It has glass plate windows over looking Lake Superior. There is a big... More

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
