Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Minnesota - Lutsen Lookout

Rental Cabin in Lutsen, MN with 3 bedrooms & 2.5 bathrooms views lake superior

Lutsen Lookout is rental log 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. 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 house in 2013

Why Todd Robinett chose Minnesota

Lutsen Lookout was built for luxury and privacy while maximizing the views or Lake Superior. Lutsen Lookout is a very comfortable 2400 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 house 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.

GREAT FAMILY FUN!

  • 5 of 5

We checked into Lutsen Lookout excited about a great week with our extended family. We had amazing communication with the host family and they gave us an abundance of tips for the trip. We highly suggest getting groceries in Two Harbors or bring with you, because the small grocery stores around have quirky hours, small selection, and high prices. When we got to the house, it was AMAZING! We rent a house every year in a different state, and this by far was the best (outfitted) house we have ever stayed in. For experienced VRBO travelers, we immediately noticed the "extras"...shampoo, hair dryers, essential oil hand soaps, and a huge assortment of cooking appliances. We really didn't need a single thing other than clothes and food. There were a lot of summer events in surrounding areas, and the hiking was fantastic. We didn't take advantage of the sauna or the grill, but it was fun to think of a time when it would be fun to return and use both of those.

This is one of those places on our list that we know we would return to if given the chance. We're pretty picky, too, so we know you will like it also.

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

There are so many great things to say about this place! Firstly, it is in the perfect location--right on the same road as Ski resorts in the winter, just down the road from dozens of hiking trails, and far enough off of 61 to be quiet, but still with a great view of Superior. No matter what time of year it is, this is the perfect place.

The cabin itself is extremely spacious, and no matter how many people are visiting you won't feel like you are on top of each other. The open plan feel also allows you to feel privacy when you need it, no matter which space you are occupying.

Definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: Being located in Lutsen, near the ski hills, alpine slide, golf, hiking trails, winery, restaurants, bars and biking trails makes for a great getaway. But the views of Superior and the quiet nature that surrounds us ... that's why we're here!!

Anderson family

  • 5 of 5

We ventured to the area for some spring break skiing and are so glad to have found the Lutsen Lookout. Skiing was amazing and the cabin was perfect for 2 families. This place has everything you need and many unexpected extras. The sauna was awesome and the view was stunning. The property was a bit muddy due to warm temps, I can understand the need for 4 week drive.

Owner's Response: Two families sharing Lutsen Lookout is probably the perfect getaway. Plenty of room to spread out and relax ... prepare your own meals ... and share the expenses .... makes it reasonable. Sorry to say the Sauna use is not included.

Weekend getaway in March

  • 5 of 5

The experience was better than we could have possibly imaged. Despite the weather being warmer than normal for early March (almost 55 degrees!), the snow in Lutsen was perfect for skiing and snowshoeing. The Lutsen Lookout cabin exceeded our expectations in every way. It is very spacious, but also is very cozy for a winter getaway. The views from all over the house out to Lake Superior were fantastic. We will definitely be coming back again soon!

Owner's Response: We are "view people" too. Glad you could experience that "Lut-Zen" feeling that sort of let's you disconnect from life's little stresses. Look forward to having your group back!!

Fantastic Getaway location!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Lutsen Lookout with another family for spring break 2016. It is such a beautiful property, and accessible to so many fun things to do in that area of Minnesota. We loved the kitchen for our 'gourmet' cooking, and the fireplace was perfect to warm up after our outdoor adventures of hiking down to the lake and back. The views from inside are stunning of Lake Superior and all of the forests along Highway 61. The screen porch was perfect place to hang out even on a melting spring day. You are minutes from the ski hills and golf course and yet extremely quiet. The teen age kids loved not giving up their electronics and all of the movie options were a big plus in the evening. We kept the bird and deer feeders full and the wildlife came in every day. Sauna was also a hit with the adults to take away the sore muscles. ; ) We will definitely keep this one on our favorites list! Highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Sorry to say the Sauna is not part of the rental ... insurance and legal folks don't find the fun in it. But the hiking and eating and other fun stuff is still included in EVERY RENTAL!! Can't write a policy to take that away!!
