Overview

About the property

Log Cabin in Lutsen, MN with 3 bedrooms & 2.5 bathrooms with 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 Minnesota

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.

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!!

Beautiful home with beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Lutsen Lookout!

Our group ranged in age from 8-80 and there was something for everyone.

We were lucky enough to be there during the full moon and the view of the moon over the lake from the front wall of windows was amazing! The telescope added yet another dimension to our sky-watching!

Great place for a family get-away!

Owner's Response: If you're fortunate enough to see the full moon cascade into the great room ... over lake Superior ... you won't soon forget it! It's stunning to see ... no matter what season. So glad your group had the timing right.

Owner's Response: We have rented many properties over the years too ... and found that most are lacking in the small details. We really try to make things complete ... in the kitchen and bathrooms ... where those extra details are appreciated. Glad you enjoyed your trip. Hope to see you again at Lutsen Lookout!

A Vacation To Remember

  • 5 of 5

The only thing better than spending quality time with family is spending it at such a wonderful place. Lutsen Lookout fit our group of 10 like a glove and provided comfort and a home base for all sorts of hiking adventures. The place is beautiful and spacious and provided a wonderful view of Lake Superior over a field of multi-colored lupine flowers. We were even greeted by a black bear one morning!

If you're looking for a place that will provide you an unforgettable experience, spend some time at the Lutsen Lookout!

Owner's Response: It's always nice to wake up to a Black Bear roaming the grounds. A good sign of a healthy forest! Glad you enjoyed our friendly neighborhood visitor and hope you can come back again! Having an open floor plan really works for a group of 10. Great space to spread out and enjoy!

Beautiful Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We used the house as base camp for the Lutsen 99er mountain bike race and needless to say everyone was SUPER impressed! The house is immaculate, decorated exactly how you would dream any northern home should be, great views of the lake, and the plenty of recreational things to do, not only in the house, but in the surrounding area. I would highly recommend it to anyone! (And kind of hoping you guys will not need it for the race next year as I think we are coming back, ha)

Owner's Response: The Lutsen99er is an amazing mountain bike race attracting top riders from around the country. Really exciting to see. Needless to say ... I won't be riding in it ... but reveling nearby!! Hope you guys can come back and win it next year!!

Exactly what we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

What a place! What a weekend getaway! We were up with a group of friends celebrating my husband's 40th birthday and this place was just the right fit! Way bigger than the pictures let on, so unique and full of character. We cooked all our meals so we were pleasantly surprised at the extensive collection of kitchen utensils, dishes and such. The second day into our stay our group was already discussing when we'd be back! Beautiful place, we'll definitely be back!
