Overview

About the property

A North Shore Cabin Rental with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and Lake Views

Lutsen Lookout log cabin is large rental cabin in Lutsen, MN. The log cabin was completed in 2013. It's located 1-mile from the Lutsen Ski Mountain and Superior National Golf Course, within the Superior National Forest. While the charming towns of Lutsen, Tofte and Grand Marais are nearby, you will feel secluded in this private setting on 5+ acres of pristine wilderness, surrounded by 100's of acres of Superior Nat'l Forest and Minnesota State Scientific and Natural Area.

Unique features like the 28' rock fireplace, tree trunk center island, handcrafted cedar tree, claw foot bathtub, heated floors and the spectacular 30' wall of windows make this property a one-of-a-kind, and original to the scenic north shore.

Lutsen Lookout is the perfect place for gatherings with friends and family. The large open spaces, luxurious amenities, gorgeous views and natural surroundings provide that up-north atmosphere to relax even those most stressed out. Plenty of outdoor activities await you right outside the front door. Or hunker down with movies, board games, crafting, wildlife viewing or a good book. Prepare your own meals in the large modern kitchen and gather around the 'stump' for great conversation. Or venture out to one of the nearby restaurants or pubs just a mile or two away.

A large screened porch (with seasonal windows) connected to a 65' deck overlooking Lake Superior add to the living space and give you a feel of sitting with nature. Sit under the spectacle of stars in the evening around a nice bonfire in our outdoor firepit area. The Superior hiking trails, Gitchi Gami bike trail, Ski slopes, Alpine slide, X-country trails, snowmobile trails and the Superior National golf course are all very close by.

Bears, Wolves, Lynx, Bobcat, Coyotes, Deer, Mink, Owls, Eagles and other wildlife make cameo appearances on the property. Come on up and enjoy all that Minnesota has to offer, at Lutsen Lookout.

NO SMOKING PROPERTY. Responsible renters must be 25 years old. Winter and Spring access require all-wheel or 4-wheel drive vehicles.

About Todd Robinett

We have enjoyed traveling and exploring the US and many Countries overseas. The North shore of Minnesota has always been a special place with magnificent beauty. We're now able to spend time and share this property with friends, family and you!

Todd Robinett purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Todd Robinett chose Lutsen

Lutsen Lookout was built for luxury and privacy while maximizing the views or Lake Superior. Lutsen Lookout is a very comfortable 2600 sq ft home with an open design. It's located on 5.2 private acres of pristine land and surrounded by 100's of acres of State and Federal land. Nearby restaurants, bars, shopping areas and activities make it an ideal location. You can cross county ski, hike and snowmobile right from the front door. Due to the remote access, all-wheel or 4-wheel drive is required for winter rentals.

What makes this cabin unique

Located on a snowmobile trail with easy access to groomed cross county skiing and downhill skiing at the Lutsen Mountain. For warmer weather enjoy the nearby Lake Superior Hiking Trail, the Gitchee Gumee bike trail, Gondola rides the Alpine Slide or leisurely walks along Lake Superior beaches. Surrounded by woods, privacy and wildlife. Ideal for 2-3 families or couples. Nearby restaurants include Papa Charlies (2 miles), Lutsen Lodge (2 miles), Moguls Grille and Tap Room (2 miles), Coho Cafe (7 miles), Cascade Lodge (10 miles) and some great brew pubs and restaurants in Grand Marias (19 miles) ... and coming soon (2015) the North Shore Winery ... just a mile away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, we had the best time! Lutsen Lookout was just wonderful to stay at - so relaxing and peaceful. My husband and I celebrate our 20th anniversary in a 4 years, so we hope to all go up again in 2021 if you're still renting it!



Take care,

Five Star Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a slice of heaven on the north shore! Beautiful vacation home, with amazing views of Lake Superior and the north woods. Loved the architecture and special details. The home accommodated our group very nicely. The owners are great to work with and appreciated all of the detailed information we received before our arrival. We are definitely going to try and make this an annual trip. Bonus was great skiing at Lutsen. The high speed chair lift on Moose Mountain makes for lots of ski runs. Runs are long and the views are amazing, felt like we were skiing Heavenly in Tahoe. Thank you!

Owner's Response: The Lutsen Mountains ski area has upgraded their Gondola's (You'll find one of the old Gondola's hanging around our property) and added a high speed chair lift ... which means more skiing ... and less cold riding. Lutsen Lookout is just a couple miles away from the fun! Look forward to having you back!!

Lutsen Lookout - October 2017

  • 5 of 5

Property was beautiful and perfect size for our larger group. Well equipped for meals, but many destinations nearby for time away form the cabin. Todd was very easy to work with and in touch with us for any needs we may have had. Would definitely go back again.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear your group of 10 felt comfortable ... even in the kitchen! Relaxing around the open spaces and gazing out thru the wall of windows ... is mesmerizing ... but ...it's the beauty of the outdoors that brings us up the north shore. It's easy to day trip to Eagle Mountain (Highest point in Minnesota) or Pigeon Falls along the Canadian border ... and catch lunch in Grand Marias ... getting back to Lutsen for some wine sampling at the North Shore Winery ... just a 20 minute walk down our road. Then have a bonfire and glimpse the space station and Milky Way ... in clear norther sky! Slip into our comfortable beds ... and ready yourself for another day! Look forward to having your group back!

Wow! Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Lutsen Lookout is absolutely amazing! My Husband, myself and our favorite furry friend stayed for a long weekend getaway in Nov. From the very beginning, Todd was so responsive and accommodating to our every request. Especially allowing us an early check-in and late check-out! The cabin itself is spectacular. It's even better in person than the pictures, if that's even possible! All the attention to detail is impeccable, from the décor, the furnishings, the amazing double sided fireplace and the outdoor Sauna. In addition, sometimes it's the little things that also make a big difference. The packet we received ahead of time outlined everything you would want to know about the place and how to use everything inside, i.e: the internet, sauna instructions, sound system, driving instructions etc. Also, the light switches were all labeled, which can be super useful when you're in a new place with lots of lights! :)

Finally, the location is amazing! Close to great hiking, restaurants, and only about 20 mins to the Grand Marais Co-Op, one of our favorites. And that view, waking up to the view of the sunrise over the lake was breathtaking!

I highly recommend Lutsen Lookout, and we can't wait to come back very soon!

Thanks Todd and Family for making our stay so wonderful!

Owner's Response: Thank you Aly and really glad you experienced those amazing sunrises over Lake Superior. It's never painful to get up early at Lutsen Lookout ... there's always something waiting. It could be an amazing sunrise over Lake Superior, or a flock of Norther Flickers at the feeders ... or even a Bear strolling the grounds. Worst scenario you have a nice cup of coffee (that we supply) and relax in the peace and quiet of the north woods. Look forward to having you back!!

Lutsen Lookout is beautiful! The view is spectacular and the colors were stunning! Plenty of room for three couples or more. Everything you need is there. A great place to relax, hike, take in nature or check out the area.

We had a great time and will be back!

Spacious and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful large and comfortable home! There were so many places to spend time in this house and relax. The view is also spectacular. I enjoyed sitting in a chair by the gigantic windows looking over the trees and the lake. My mother in law kept saying she loved how much room there was but the house was also so warm and cozy. There were so many fun items inside and outside the house to look at and check out. The wooden tree table in the kitchen became a favorite spot for all of us to eat and hang out while we listened to music. We are hoping to come back to this home in the future!

Owner's Response: The huge tree stump center island was actually cut from a local tree along the north shore. With a 5' x 8' birch table top ... it has become the "speak easy" of Lutsen Lookout. Gather here for coffee, breakfast, happy hour and dinner .... and speaking will come easy!! Sounds like you found the treasures of Lutsen Lookout .... The views, the cozy feel, the open unique spaces and of course the speak easy!! Hope you come back soon!!

We loved Lutsen Lookout!

We loved Lutsen Lookout! The view of Lake Superior was amazing! The property was clean and well stocked with everything we needed for the week! Would highly recommend! You should check out the Wild Maple Sryup company. The syrup was yummy!!! Lunch at nanibijou lodge was delicious!

Owner's Response: Agreed ... the maple syrup at Wild Maple is amazing. And ... where on Earth can you still buy on the honor system? Put your payment into a box ... make your own change ... and take your jar of syrup. Love it!! Oh ... and also agreed ... the view at Lutsen Lookout is incredible!! Thank you and look forward to your next visit
