We stayed 2 nights at the Poplar River Condos in Lutsen Resort for a wedding. The resort location is in a beautiful part of MN with spectacular views of Lake Superior. Our room was on the far end of the resort, which required a short drive to the main lodge. My wife used to visit this resort with her family... More

Our family of 4 loves staying in the log cabins. It's the perfect set up. We buy groceries in Two Harbors so that we can make 2 nights worth of dinners at the cabin. We buy the breakfast package and have our breakfasts at the resort restaurant. The buffet is more than enough. It's always nice and quiet at the... More

This resort's historic location needs no review to alert returning North Shore summer visitors it’s the best place around—everyone already knows it! The beach is expansive, family-friendly, and one of the nicest on Superior’s shores; the restaurant is tops (delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week), and the resort’s activities, including a classic shuffleboard court, nightly bonfire,...

A very nice resort with a spectacular view of Lake superior. We visited both the dining room and the bar and both were very enjoyable. Our only disappointment was a lack of Wi-Fi in our guestroom. Overall a pleasant stay in a very nice setting.

My husband and I enjoyed our recent stay at the Lutsen Resort last month. I was impressed with the fact that it accommodated families,couples and groups alike.. Although it was easy to participate in many activities, quiet walks along the lovely paths and beach could be enjoyed as well. We stayed in the beautiful lodge but the resort offered condos... More

Staying at the sea villas at Lutsen is like stepping back into 1970 - in a good way. With updated kitchens and furnishings, our 2br, 2ba + loft was cozy and had a spectacular view of Lake Superior. The kids can walk to the nearby indoor pool or spend hours scouring the rocky shores, scrambling on rocks. These units are... More

We stayed in the Main Lodge at Lutsen for our 10th anniversary. At that time there was little else but the Main Lodge. Our room was a lake view above the main dining room. Now, 40 years later, there are condos, luxury log cabins, and villas. Nevertheless, we requested a lake view room in the Main Lodge and over the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I’m glad you found the Poplar River units spacious and the view, lake and beach beautiful. I apologize that our housekeeping department did not service the room as promised. I’ve spoken with our housekeeping department and our front desk manager about the issue. It appears to have been a communication... More

We rented a sea villa on a whim when we decided to have a quick mini vacation close to home. I had stayed in the Sea Villas on a family trip when I was young and I was eager to see them again. When we checked in and went in it was similar to what I remembered, although since we... More

Stayed at Lutsen for a long weekend. Beautiful location on Lake Michigan with lots of activities offered on the property. We took advantage of intro to fly fishing and sea kayaking, both were great fun! Live music around a campfire our first night here was a nice treat. Appreciated the communal fire rings, great for sitting around at night and... More
