About the property

Spacious 3bedroom/3bathroom log cabin near Lutsen Mountains with superior views

Lutsen Lookout is a stunning and spacious log cabin near the Lutsen Mountains ski area and the North Shore Winery. Enjoy privacy on over 5 acres of pristine land, surrounded by the Superior Nat'l Forest. You will feel the serenity of this peaceful place as you gaze out through the great room 28' high wall of windows overlooking Lake Superior. Your group can spread out in 3,000 sq ft of open floor plan and relax without feeling cramped or crowded. Cozy up to our towering custom see-through fireplace, or relax under the Milky Way at our large outdoor fire pit. Eat casually at our handcrafted tree trunk center island or more formally with table seating for 8+. The charming towns of Lutsen, Tofte and Grand Marais are nearby and offer all of the conveniences you can use. Day trip to the Canadian border or Split Rock lighthouse, or hike the nearby Superior Hiking trails. Lutsen Lookout has unique features you won't find anywhere else, like an outdoor ski gondola with intimate seating for two, and an outdoor hand-crafted sauna. A claw foot tub in the master bathroom awaits you after a day of nearby downhill skiing, hiking or x-country skiing. In-floor heat keeps the toes nice and toasty throughout the cabin. Get lucky and see some of our wildlife neighbors like deer, fox, owls, eagles, coyotes, wolves, lynx, bobcat, pine marten and black bear who may make an appearance..

Lutsen Lookout is the perfect place for gatherings with friends and family. The large open spaces, luxurious eco 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 good wi-fi, movies, board games, cribbage, checkers, crafting, or a good book. Prepare your own meals in the large modern kitchen which has it all! 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 connect you with the surrounding 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.

Stay at Lutsen Lookout and enjoy all that the north shore has to offer.

Thank you for NOT SMOKING. Lutsen lookout is a smoke free 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 3000 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 the new 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!!

Fantastic location for a ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

Just wrapped up a ski weekend at Lutsen Lookout. The property was beautiful, roomy and clean. There is an incredible view from anyplace in the house. The setting is a very private secluded and surrounded by nature. The property was stocked with everything we needed for enjoying our family time together. For our family the best part was that it is a 3 minute drive to the base of Lutsen ski area. Our group of skiers would start and finish skiing at different times during the day and it was so easy to just hop in the car, pick them up and then be back at the house in less then 10 minutes. The sauna was a great way to relax after a day on the hills. Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, had a large fridge and plenty of seating for a large group.

Owner's Response: Close to Skiing, the Winery, Bars and Restaurants ... Yet so far away from the crowds. That's the beauty of Lutsen Lookout. We're tucked into the Superior Nat'l Forest ... with nature all around ... but just a short drive takes you to all the conveniences you need or want. Thanks for visiting and hope you come back again! Try the summer or fall too. Awesome waterfalls and hiking ... or the Alpine Slide at Lutsen Mountains is always fun.

Outstanding as usual

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this home 4 times now, I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Lutsen.

Todd is responsive, professional and flexible. If Lutsen Lookout is available, rent it.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Based upon the VRBO listing, photos, and reviews my wife and I had high expectations for Lutsen Lookout and we were not disappointed!! Our stay was nothing short of magical! Todd was absolutely great to work with while planning our trip and was quite prompt and responsive with questions and details. The property is incredible! It is obvious Todd and Pam put their heart and soul into designing the home and they truly made us feel welcome. Lutsen Lookout is a truly special property and we can't wait to go back! Thank you Todd and Pam!

Owner's Response: The real heart-n-soul of Lutsen Lookout is the nature that surrounds you up there. The Superior Forrest is vast and unfolds right outside our front door. The magical views of lake superior and the warmth of a log cabin ... make leaving city life behind ... easy. Oh ... and thanks for noticing the details!! We did a lot of planning to make it right!
