LOVED the homey restaurant at the main lodge & the one guided hike we took. Gave resort a 3 b/c of Sea Villas, which are about 3mi away. Apparently the villas are privately owned; the one we were assigned was NOT decorated like the pictures on the website. Low ceilings--6'3" husband's head almost touched shower ceiling. Units are right on... More

We spent the day at the spa, pool, patio, dining room. We'd never been here but we will return. It gave us a nice taste of Scandinavian Hospitality. Everyone we encountered was nice and welcoming. Seeing the families and guests enjoying themselves all over the resort was heartwarming. It was a wonderful, sunny day and the beach was great. People... More

My wife and I had our anniversary dinner at the Lutsen Resort Restaurant. My wife said it was one of the best meals she has ever had. We had the Amish Chicken and split the meal. It was enough food for the both of us and we took some back to the hotel. The price was reasonable for the quality... More

We unexpectedly needed a room for two nights on a recent trip to the north shore. I was able to get the last room they had in the lodge. It was explained as a standard king on the third floor with no elevator. I must admit I wasn't expecting much, but I was truly surprised. While this is an old... More

Stayed at the Lutsen Resort Sea Villas in mid-July for a family get away. We stayed in the 1 bedroom + loft with our dog and two kids. The Sea Villa is on the smaller side but the location right on the shores of Lake Superior can't be beat. One draw back of the Sea Villas is that there is... More

Founded in 1885 Lutsen resort is MN's oldest resort. I came here as a child with my family for winter cross country skiing and many years later decided to have a nice Anniversary getaway with my husband. He had never been here and had no idea Lutsen was more than just downhill skiing. We absolutely loved the location and the... More

Regular since 70s. Go ahead, go somewhere else. Oh, more "characters" requested. You want characters? Here: The place is a fantastic value. I prefer peace and quiet... NO motors, shared music, loud parties. My family has come regularly for nearly 40 years Speaking of "characters," there are mostly great characters attracted to Lutsen Resort! How's that? (It is ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️+)

I came here with my mom, siblings, and my family and stayed for a week. She booked two sea villas. Upon arrival, she found that the two villas were pretty much on complete separate ends of the resort. Sure - a nice walk...but really? Isn't it pretty obvious that when someone books TWO, that they should be side-by-side, or atleast... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed the bonfire, the pool, the various activities available in the area and the views. The Villas are known for their views as they are definitely right on the shore of Lake Superior. It is true that when people book two or more units we put them close... More

Maybe an average review isn't quite fair but it wasn't worthy of a 5 star. The location is fantastic, we stayed in the main lodge and supports a very typical and beautiful view that you would hope and expect to have while on Superior. The staff was very nice and courteous. The food was very good, on the expensive side... More
