When you think "cabin getaway," do you think of going by yourself? Of course not! You picture grabbing your family, friends, and relatives and heading to a lake for some hot weather fun. And an authentic cabin experience isn't found in Florida or California. No, a real cabin experience has to come somewhere where the evergreens are pungent, the mosquitoes are thick, and the loons are chatty. We speak, of course, of Minnesota. These are the best destinations for families seeking a complete cabin experience.

As Minnesota’s oldest resort, Lutsen has a storied history and tradition unlike and other. IT's a lot of pressure to live up to, pressure that many other resorts would crumple under. But Lutsens has endured this long because they don't crumble; instead, they thrive.

That sense permeates every aspect of the resort, from the charming lobby to the cozy rooms to Lake Superior’s sparkling depths.

This summer, come to where you can experience Lake Superior’s rock-laden shores, incredible lodgings, and incomparable relaxation.
