The Lutsen House is the perfect Lake Superior getaway with breathtaking views, luxury accommodation, fresh air yet just minutes to the Lutsen Ski Hill, Superior National Golf Course plus hiking, biking, x-county skiing and snowmobiling trail heads.
Located near the heart of downtown Lutsen within easy walking distance of many town amenities.
The Lutsen House is the perfect Lake Superior getaway for that special retreat - whether one couple or two, a group of friends or a family. Located right on the shoreline of Lake Superior, you will experience a sun-rise to sun-set landscape. The Lutsen location makes this special home convenient for year round outdoor activities that Lutsen is known for.
This cozy home features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a comfortable dining and living room area - complete with fireplace and year round sun room, all on one easy-access level. Outside you will find a large lake-facing deck and bbq grill, perfect for those warm summer afternoons! Head down a small slope and down the built-in staircase to the ledge above Lake Superior, where you will find a fire pit and plenty of seating for everyone to gather and share stories while enjoying the sweeping views of Lake Superior. The Lutsen House has Lake Superior to the front and a creek running to the west. There is no easy-access shoreline here, but you are perched on the ledge rock above the lake which allows for great views and ample opportunities to hear the sound of the waves crashing against the shoreline during your stay.
Head out your long gravel driveway and find yourself right in downtown Lutsen, a great central location to many year-round activities. The Lutsen area offers everything from miles of hiking and biking trails to Lutsen Mountain- a recreation area offering downhill skiing in the winter and an alpine slide and sight-seeing gondola in the summer. Cascade State Park is just 10 miles away and features a gorgeous waterfall following a short, easy hike. You are also just a short drive away from several restaurants (some only open in the summer months) and quaint, locally-owned shops located nearby in downtown Lutsen and Grand Marais.
After a long day of exploring the North Shore come back to your home away from home and enjoy a fire on the ledge rock. Roast marshmallows with your friends and family and reflect on your Northwoods adventures. If you came to the North Shore just to relax, then you've obviously come to the right place! Make The Lutsen House your North Shore home away from home.

An easy to work with group and things are kept pretty simple.
This was my favorite of all the houses we have stayed on the North Shore. Very spacious house with lots of places for people to hang out . Nice creek and fire area.

We had great experience with members of your team. I actually dropped the key from the lock box and it went right into the floor board under where the lock box was. There was no way to fish it out. I called the office and they were very nice and understanding and got a key out for the lock box quickly.
The Lutsen House is always very nice. The location to Lutsen and Lake Superior is terrific.

Wonderful house and beautiful view of the Big Lake! 100 yards from Lutsen with a coffee shop. The winery and ski hill with family activities is so close.

I had no issues.
My first impression when I walked in was "what have I done!" I say that because there was a smell that wasn't pleasant. Not sure if it was from being closed up, but it did get better once we opened things up. The location is amazing and we enjoyed the creek and the fire pit. Getting down to those things is interesting, but that's part of the adventure. I would recommend getting your groceries someplace other than Lutsen, kinda limited.

After a bit of a mix-up regarding our reservation, we fully enjoyed the Lutsen House for three nights in September 2017. The location is perfect for exploring the North Shore -- great proximity to Grand Marais and all of the terrific restaurants and shopping available there. The home was furnished with plenty of towels and linens, as well as nearly everything you'd need in the kitchen. The view was amazing and the weather was perfect. The stairs to the fire pit are a bit challenging, but not impossible. It's worth the effort to enjoy Lake Superior's wonder up close and personal. We sat on rocks above the shoreline and were treated to some fresh water spray! We did not encounter any problems during our stay.

We had an issue with one of the bathtub drains but Andrew took care of it immediately. I was very impressed with his friendliness and willingness to make our stay a good one.
Lutsen house is perfectly located with a beautiful view of Lake Superior and at the same time conveniently located across highway 61 from a laundry, grocery store, liquor store and Cascade Rentals main office. The house is everything we had hoped for and more.

The house right on the lake was great. One night we saw a big orange moon rising across the lake--quite beautiful. Restaurants in Grand Marais and Blue Fin were good eating. The general store and coffee shop right across the highway were convenient.

The house is located in such a beautiful location. It was clean, well-maintained and extremely comfortable. The amenities available were excellent. Would have loved to stay longer. Just a few minor comments:
- no instructions available for turning on gas fireplace. We called the number provided and resolved very quickly.
- couldn't find any kitchen dish towels
- pillows could be better (a bit flat and hard but my husband thought they were fine). Personal preference.
- would prefer a bit later check-out than 10:00 am.
We plan to come back with the family. We've stayed at multiple resorts/condos in the area and this is my favorite one so far. Thank you.

The Lutsen House was very comfortable - adequately furnished - the beds were just right - a great view of the lake from inside and from the deck. The little creek became a gushing little river after an inch or two or rain on Sat night.
A prior review mentioned the stairway being a challenge. Yes, we needed a walking stick to feel somewhat at ease going up and down to enjoy the firepit. (The water bucket that was supposed to hang by woodpile was not around.)
Two items in the Master Bath - 1) need one or two grab bars in the shower and 2) the light above the sink should be rotated 180 degrees to shed the light downward for shaving or facial makeup use.

We really appreciated how clean the rental was when we arrived, as well as many of the "extras" (starter toiletries, spices, oil, etc) that were there for our convenience. We had noticed the reviewer prior to our stay had mentioned the tub and shower drains wouldn't clear and we were pleased to see that had been addressed and fixed... We had no issue at all with standing water. As others have mentioned it really would be nice to have access to the home's laundry facilities. I can't think of the last home or condo we've rented that didn't have onsite laundry access prior to this. As noted in previous reviews, the stairs to the water are treacherous and uneven. They really not ideal for the elderly or small children. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in this lovely home!

We loved the home and the location next to Lake Superior. The walk down to the fire pit and water was a little tricky on the old steps, but we made it with no injuries. The amenities were pretty nice with a nicely stocked kitchen with every utensil. The only amenity we wished we would have had was laundry in house, even though the laundromat was not far away. The guest bathroom that was older had a very slow drain. I would think it would be really nice if that was fixed so that you don't have to shower in a tub of water---just a thought! :)
