About Jonathan Olson

Jenny and I have 3 children. We are an active family that enjoys the outdoors and loves the North Shore.

One of the most important values in our life is spending quality time together as a family and with friends. I hope that you will enjoy your time at our place as much as we do.

Jonathan Olson purchased this townhome in 1999

Why Jonathan Olson chose Lutsen

After just one memory filled action pack family get away in 1998, we realized that spending quality time together with our 3 children and friends is one of the most important values in our lives. We also realized that there was no other place on the North Shore..let alone the Midwest that had the luxury accommodations to fit our needs for both small and large groups and that offered so many activities for all ages.

Since building our unit in 1999 we have spent countless hours of playing, laughing, exploring, skiing, hiking, picking rock, biking, swimming, sitting in front of the fire place and looking at Moose Mountain from the deck.

What makes this townhome unique

The ski hill, Caribou Highlands Resort and our 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom Popular Ridge Unit 630 is where the non-stop fun and activities are for the entire family.

Fantastic location and cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time! There is an amazing amount of space, with more than enough bedroom/bathroom space for everyone. Clean, open, well furnished. We'll definitely be looking to come back to book again in the future!

Ole's Lodge

  • 4 of 5

Great stay over the weekend! I wish there was a late check out option to make skiing on checkout day easier. It would be nice to have a 3 pm check out if there isn't an overlap of rentals. The Unit next door was rented by a bachelor party and several of our group were awakened both nights between 2-4 am. Thank you!

Owner's Response: I am glad that you enjoyed Ole's Lodge. Sorry about the bachelor party in the unit next door. That unit is currently being rented out through the resort and the resort is not very discerning about the groups they rent to. For future reservations...You will be happy to know that we have actually purchased that unit and will be renting it through VRBO as "Lena' Lodge" starting in July. So your next stay at Ole's (or Lena's) will be a quieter experience.

Great property, skiing in moments.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here first week of April to ski at Lutsen. The condo was very clean, with all the basic amenities including nice soaps, coffee filters, good cooking equipment and basic cooking needs like salt, coffee, oil, etc. That was very nice until we were able to get to the store. Getting in at night was very easy and there were convenient ski lockers available. We had neighbors next door and could never hear them. There were bathrooms for everyone which was nice. Fireplaces galore. We were able to ski in at the end of the day via Moose access - though in April this was muddy in parts and the shuttle was just as quick. Ski out was similar - no fault of the condo, but Lutsen has a significant amount of flat valleys between mountains that leads to lots of cross-country skiing if you're not clever about the runs and depending on how many lifts are running. No problem for me an adult experienced skier. More of an issue for my 8 year old who doesn't want to work to ski! All really a non-issue as to my eye there was not a place as nice closer to the mountain, and the shuttle can get you there and back in literally 2 minutes, and the owners are quite up-front about all this from the get-go. We will definitely be back!
