Blue House was originally built for a family who grew up here in Lutsen. Purchased and renovated in 2017, it is now available to rent year round for families and friends who love the North Shore.  From a premium chef's kitchen to the large open game room, this home has it all!  Located just off Ski Hill Road and walking distance to Lutsen Mountains Ski Resort. The Blue House is a year-round destination, perfect for your family's next trip to Lake Superior's North Shore.

The house provides everything needed to enjoy both indoor and outdoor activities. There is an expansive deck, a gazebo and a large gas grill. Below the deck is a fire pit. 2 wood burning fireplaces inside plus an expansive wall of windows facing Moose Mountain, a ping pong table, a foosball table, a craft table and a closet full of games give many options while relaxing at
home. Each area of the home allows for both privacy or groups of people to gather. The timber frame game room is separate from the living room. There are 3 bedrooms plus an office with a West Elm pull out queen sized bed. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to make meals; the dining room table seats 12. Almost every room has a view of Lake Superior. A free bag of locally roasted Fika Coffee is provided for your stay. There is a coffee grinder and a DeLonghi espresso machine for your use.  The addition of Blue 2 (seasonal) means there's even more room to roam on this large property.  Blue 2 features a sitting area where the sofa turns into a queen sized bed, TV, heat, and air conditioning so it can be used year round.  

As far as location goes, The Blue House is so close to Lutsen Mountains Ski Area that you can walk there. For the downhill
skier/snowboarder, it is perfectly situated on Eagle Mountain where a 2 minute walk puts you right on Bridge Run. For the non skier, this house is still close to everything—just minutes from the Superior Hiking Trail, a short walk brings you right to the heart of Lutsen Mountain Ski Resort; a short drive down Ski Hill Road brings you to the heart of Lutsen Resort on Lake
Superior. And that’s just the beginning. Enjoy the vibrant nightlife at Papa Charlie's and Mogul's restaurants with live music year round.  During the summer months, you have easy access to the Alpine Slide, sight-seeing gondola, and miles and miles of hiking trails.  Should you get the urge to venture out from the immediate area, you will find you are a short drive away from many North Shore destinations.  Lutsen Resort, with two restaurants and a spa, is just a mile down Ski Hill Road.  Within a 20 mile drive, you will find waterfalls, scenic overlooks, historical markers, and the quaint town of Lutsen.  Just 30 miles away is Grand Marais, great for a day of shopping and dining in wonderful ma and pa stores and restaurants.  The North Shore has a lot to offer and The Blue House is right in the middle of the action.

So whether you are coming up for a ski trip with friends, or a summertime vacation with the whole family, the Blue House is a destination to consider.  This home is our premium luxury home so we ask that you treat it well while taking time to appreciate the magnificent mountain-top views of Lake Superior. 

NOTE: The hot tub is not available to renters for insurance reasons.

No problems and got prompt responses to our questions.
Overall the house was great. We really enjoyed the location and the amount of space we had. The only comment we had is that we would be more inclined to stay again if the hot tub was usable.

Wonderful Christmas in Lutsen 2018 , really enjoyed our stay at the Blue house. Skied for 5 days. Ate almost all of our meals in, so used kitchen extensively. Enjoyed the real wood fireplace. Finished our evenings with a movie in the game room. Would definitely stay here again!

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful, spacious and met almost every need we could've wanted. We spent a lot of time in the game-room, kitchen and on the deck when the weather allowed. Our only major complaint is that there was no hand soap in the kitchen or downstairs bathroom. We used dish soap. The upper bathrooms had shower/body bars which sufficed, but hand soap of some sort at each sink would've been greatly appreciated.

We LOVED the Blue House. The location was superb, the views were amazing. The space was great. Plenty of room for the kids to play in the "game room" and adults to gather by the fire and kitchen to visit. We will definitely stay again and would highly recommend this rental for families and get togethers. Con: it is advertised as ski in/ski out, although it is possible, it is very difficult to do so on the ungroomed trail. All of us that attempted to "ski in" got stuck and we could not find the "ski out" trail.

Where do I begin? Rather than type any more than I already have, let's just sum up my experiences over the years with all members of the CVR team by saying this: Everyone has always been welcoming, friendly, caring, helpful and willing to listen. You can't ask for more than that in my humble opinion.
Blue House is very easy to find and is a very short walk to all that the Lutsen Mountain ski area has to offer. Very spacious home. New King bed in their Mountainside Bedroom is one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in! Large Game Room is fun to hang out in with "in floor" heating to keep the feet warm if the ping pong and/or foosball playing doesn't get the heart pumping enough to do so. Very open and large kitchen, dining & living room areas make this perfect for cooking, dining & relaxing with family members after a day on the mountain. Fireplaces will warm you up in both the Living Room and Game Room. Keep in mind though, this will also be a great place to rent even after the snow is gone. There is a ginormous deck and a gazebo that provides GREAT views of that wonderful lake we all love.
