My boyfriend and I went up to Lutsen skiing over the past weekend and didn't stay here, but we wish we did! We stopped in the lounge, where Don, our bartender took immediate care of our needs for a warm drink after a day of skiing. He offered great wine suggestions and impeccable service. Because of Don and the impression he made on us, we will only be staying at Lutsen Resort next time around.

I would suggest this hotel for everyone vacationing on the north shore, they have a number of different options for lodging that will fit into anybodys budget. Service at the front desk and dining room is top notch. The resort keeps improving year after year. You can tell the management cares about its property and its guests. Wouldnt stay anywhere but here when I visit the shore. Other accomodations in the area are mostly around the ski hill and charge outrages prices for mediocre accomodations with no attention to detail.

We stayed in the Poplar condos at the Lutsen Resort in Lutsen MN and loved it. The rooms were nice, clean and had a wonderful view of the lake. Our room was with in walking distance to the lodge making it convenient to go for dinner and drinks without having to drive when it was snowing. We went for a weekend and had a great time. The food in the pub was good and reasonably priced. The staff was nice and we did not encounter a single problem while we were there.

We stayed in a Sea Villa Condo with loft which was about a mile from the main lodge and its rooms. The Sea Villa Condos are all clustered together on the shore of Lake Superior and have their own indoor swimming pool and rec area nearby. The condo was 'compact' in a nautical sort of way. Getting to the loft was a ladder rather than stairs but the kids really liked it. The appliances all worked and there was nice kettle charcoal barbecue outside the sliding door to the deck. Every morning we woke to hear the crashing waves and the beautiful lake sparkling away into the horizon. There may not be another place like this in the United States. There is lots to do nearby including fishing trips, an extremely challenging but beautiful PGA grade golf course, and little slider cars in chutes at the ski resort. You could also drive to the Lutsen resort building and check out clubs to play their little Par 3 pitch and putt course (very rough but playable and fun with the kids). We also went on a kayak trip out onto Lake Superior which was a thrill but also difficult due to weather conditions. Not for the weak-hearted, that!

I am reviwing a 1 bedroom sea villa at Lutsen resort. We usually stay at the Poplar townhouses, but decided to try the sea villas with our baby girl. The room had a loft which would be great if you had 3 kids that were old enough to clime up the ladder on their own. The villa was too small for our pack n play though, so I would head back to the poplar townhouses next time (which are also newer and nicer, though farther from the water). These are great, but not right for our family yet.
