The Mountain Inn at Lutsen is an intimate, affordable motel-style Inn located at the base of Lutsen Mountains. The King Suite is our largest room. This spacious room features one king bed, large wet bar area with a sink, microwave, and mini-fridge, sleeper sofa, a small dining table and chairs, and a private bathroom. This room can accommodate up to 4 guests.
As far as location goes, Mountain Inn is close enough to Lutsen Mountains Ski Area that you can walk there. For the downhill skier/snowboarder, it is perfectly situated near 0.2 miles from Eagle Mountain where a 5-minute walk puts you right on Bridge Run. For the non-skier, Mountain Inn is close to everything the North Shore has to offer. You are a short walk to several miles of cross-country skiing and snowmobile trails, as well as groomed fat bike trails. Within a 20 mile drive, you will find waterfalls, scenic overlooks, historical markers, and the quaint town of Lutsen. Just 20 miles away is Grand Marais, great for a day of shopping and dining in wonderful ma and pa stores and restaurants. 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, Superior National at Lutsen Golf Course, and miles and miles of hiking and biking trails. The North Shore has a lot to offer and Mountain Inn is right in the middle of the action.
The Mountain Inn is conveniently located at the start and finish of the Lutsen 99er Bike Race, near the Norpine Fat Bike Classic start and finish, and near the finish of the Superior Spring and Fall marathon and ultra-marathon running events. With such a convenient location the Mountain Inn books up quickly for these events!
Please note that Mountain Inn no longer offers continental breakfast or breakfast vouchers for Lutsen Resort. Also, the hot tub and sauna area has been removed and the area will be converted into the newest location for the LutZen Reflections day spa! Now you can just walk from your room to get a relaxing massage or other pampering services. Please refer to the LutZen Reflections website for appointments and rates.
Didn't interact with anyone. Love the keyless entry system.
Wonderful place to stay. Large comfortable room and accomodations.

The gentleman carrying out some of the drywall/painting repairs was an excellent ambassador for the property. Very insightful on the history of the area as well as emmenaties relating to summer and winter activities. We'll definitely be back...even with the 8-hour trip from Winnipeg!
Aside from a "hick-up" of little or no water pressure on the Saturday of our 3-day stay, this was a great place to stay. Price was perhaps a little steep compared to some of the other local venues, but we'd still consider coming back to the Mountain Inn. Perhaps some Canadian pricing incentives would be considered by the Cascade group - Canadian $$$ at par, etc - this would ensure an increased capacity for the venue.

Friendly employee working behind the counter the little we saw of him. We did not have any issues that needed any attention.
Great location. Nice clean room. Nothing fancy, but a nice quiet place to stay at a reasonable price.
