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

Perfect Family Vacation !

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at Lutsen Lookout! It is so comforting to walk in and feel at home. So relaxing and great to have the whole family together in one place for the week. We had 2 two year olds this year and they loved it! Enjoyed the North Shore Winery - be sure to take in a wine tasting session!

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at Lutsen Lookout this summer. The location is quiet and secluded, but not far from many of the things to enjoy on the North Shore (multiple state parks, Lutsen mountains, Grand Marais). The cabin itself was very beautiful (we especially liked the large open area and the windows and deck that allowed us to soak in the lake and woods). The owners were very easy to communicate with, and even gave some great tips for sightseeing--great hosts. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking gear and supplies, and the house had a nice selection of board games and movies to entertain us in the evening. My only small complaint was that one of the queen beds upstairs is overdue for replacement (most beds in the house were comfortable, but this one was quite saggy in the middle). Overall, a wonderful place to enjoy a long weekend.

Owner's Response: Sorry about that saggy bed. I believe it's the support under the mattress ... not the actual mattress ... and we'll be looking into that one!! Glad to hear that your group enjoyed Lutsen Lookout and all the north shore has to offer!!

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

This was out 2nd stay at Lutsen Lookout and we hope to come back again. The cabin is comfortable and well appointed. We live the location for easy access to many hiking trails, Grand Marais and the new North Shore Winery. Our mornings on the screen porch, afternoons on the deck and evenings around a bonfire were awesome! Can't wait to visit again.

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Lutsen Lookout is the perfect escape! Tucked into Lutsen Mountain you feel like you are away from it all, yet only moments from hiking, parks, and fun in Grand Marais. My husband and I spent a relaxing week at Lutsen Lookout reading and enjoying the view of Lake Superior - exactly what we needed to escape our busy life for a little while. The house is beautiful and appointed with everything you will need. We especially enjoyed being able to walk to nearby North Shore Winery. We will be back!

Owner's Response: R&R and LL ... a perfect combination. I did notice a new trail blazed thru the woods headed towards the Winery. Good job!!

Amazing Lutsen Lookout

  • 5 of 5

Lutsen Lookout is the perfect place to enjoy the North Shore of Lake Superior. The house is majestic yet very comfortable.

Six of us ranging from age 12 to 75 spent a wonderful week there enjoying the well appointed home. We cooked dinners on the gas grill and gas stove, made s'mores at the fire pit. We spent a lot of time on the huge deck just staring at Lake Superior.

There are many activities and restaurants in the area.

The owners are great to deal with.

We recommend Lutsen Lookout and will hopefully have the chance to go back. It would be fun in any season.

Owner's Response: Bring the whole family ... There's room for everyone. And ... everyone can find a nook or corner to do their own thing ... but mostly enjoy the gorgeous nature that surrounds the north shore.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We spend two nights in this beautiful place as a last minute gateway and didn't want to leave!! This cabin was flawless, beautiful, cozy, spacious, the whole package. From the fluffy towels, the fully equipped kitchen, the high quality hand soap/shampoo/lotion, bunch of games, surround system, to the amazing view we were in loved! Our group had kids from 3 month old to adults 65 years old and it worked perfect. So peaceful... Among the activities we went hiking to the Temeprance River, visit Grand Marei, swam in the clear waters of Lake Superior on the rock beach, stargazing on the beautiful deck and smores around the fire pit. So fun! We can't wait to come back! Thank you for the wonderful time!!!

Owner's Response: There's a reason for naming a river TEMPERANCE. If you have hiked along her cliffs and scrambled along her gorges ... and seen her after a heavy rain ... you know why she earned her name. Just another reason to head up the north shore. We're right in the middle of it!!
