In 1885, Minnesota had only been a state for 27 years. There was so much history and progress to be made in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Nearly 130 years later, the North Star State continues to celebrate its rich heritage while also showcasing a contemporary flair.   

Lutsen Resort on Lake Superior, which opened in 1885, unites Minnesota tradition and modern living. Immersed in Northwoods history for more than a century, this resort displays the state’s unique history and hospitality while still staying fresh with outstanding accommodations and  nearby attractions for couples, families, and outdoor enthusiasts.

First homesteaded by a Swedish immigrant, this family-owned resort has been perfecting the craft of hospitality since the 19th century. While making you feel at home is a timeless tradition, it requires updated accommodations. That’s why Lutsen offers in-room Jacuzzis, fireplaces, private decks, and more. Soak up the simple life in a classic log cabin or pamper yourself in a luxury condominium.

“The entire experience nourishes your soul, combining Northwoods tradition with contemporary refinement,” Midwest Living Magazine said. “You wish you could stay forever, but you know you’ll return.”    

Step just outside your door for additional fantastic amenities. Take a dip in the sparkling pool, soak in a whirlpool, relieve stress in the sauna, or have a blast in the game room. Further your relaxation with a therapeutic massage in the Wellness Center, unwind with a glass of wine at the resort’s Poplar River Pub, and satisfy your stomach with the onsite restaurant’s delicious offerings.    

Exchange relaxation for recreation when you explore the Lake Superior-centered wilderness. Complimentary sea-kayak instruction and tours, fly fishing classes, beach yoga, and shoreline campfires get you acquainted with the lake’s tranquil beauty. For some dry adventures, embark on a guided nature hike, entertain the little ones with a host of kids’ programs, take a swing at the nine-hole pitch and putt golf course, or play a round of disc golf.

Take a walk through history when you trek through the surrounding area. This history-infused land is still deeply rooted in early traditions of Native American culture, logging, commercial fishing, and early tourism, meaning that a bounty of historic and cultural sites are nearby. Museums, state parks, and landmarks help paint the history of this vibrant region.  

For some modern day fun, swing by the Superior National 27-hole golf course, shoot down the Alpine Slide on Eagle Mountain, or head into town for sensational shopping. When the winter wonderland arrives, hit the slopes at the Lutsen Mountains Recreation Area.

Showcasing Minnesota’s rich heritage and contemporary culture with unmatched hospitality, historic sightseeing, and relaxing amenities, Lutsen Resort on Lake Superior unites the region’s tradition and modern living.
