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

My husband and I just spent one night at the Lutsen Sea Villas. We were to have stayed there again tonight (had a living social deal) but checked out in favor of finding somewhere more suitable for us. I have to agree that the view and distance from the lake is amazing, but that does not make up for the... More

Julie: I am sorry you found the lodging you stayed in disappointing during your recent stay. You are correct that the view and distance from the lake is amazing and I apologize that you found the Villa not what you expected. I’m glad that you’ve been pleased with your previous several visits to our property and have enjoyed the dining... More

We stayed at the Resort over Memorial Day weekend. Although our accommodations were a little "rustic" (no air-conditioning/not super fancy), we had a fabulous stay here. The staff was all incredibly friendly and helpful. There was a pizza/movie night for the kids that allowed my husband and I to spend a few hours together without paying a babysitter. There were...

We stayed with friends at a Lutsen Resort Sea Villa recently. Maybe it was the gray overcast and wet weather conditions, but the Sea Villa itself was dark, dank and not very pleasant to hang out in. Our small group of four adults was anxious to check out the Lutsen Resort Sea Villas. We arrived late Friday afternoon and got... More

Chuck: I’m sorry that the weather was not cooperating during your last visit and that the Villa felt small when you found yourselves indoors much of the time. I’m sure you were not planning to spend the weekend indoors! We apologize that you were disappointed in your visit and hope that you might consider trying a larger unit during a... More

Love love love the sea villas...been coming here twice per year for the last 5 years. Your very own small furnished condo 20 feet from lake superior! It is absolutely fabulous. Will keep coming back for sure. The loft is great for kids.
