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 dark, cramped, shabby and worn villa that we stayed in. We felt like we were in a cave and it was claustrophobic. There had been an attempt to update the villa somewhat (kitchen area) but for the most part it looked like it was still the original interior from the 70s. The bed -- queen??? really???-- was the only thing that fit in the bedroom and may have been the original mattress from the 70s too! Loft??? Send your kids up there if you want to punish them and/or want to chance a tumble down the steep (and strange) ladder contraption. For the price these units go for and to have Lutsen's name and reputation attached, they (Lutsen) should be ashamed. We have stayed at Lutsen's Poplar River condos several times and really liked them, plus have eaten at the main lodge many times. Based on these good experiences, we expected so much more of the Sea Villas. We will definitely not stay at the Sea Villas again nor recommend them.
