                            7 of 9 friends who have been together for over 35 years! Wheather was grey and foggy but we still ate, hiked, gabbed, laughed, knitted, read and talked and talked. Favorite places we ate were Angry Trout and Chez Jude in Grand Marais. Favorite moment was laughing hard while playing silly word games.

                            Thanks so much for the awesome experience of staying in this amazing cabin. The amenities provided and the quality of everything was way above what we expected. Felt like we were at an expensive resort in Colorado! Thanks for making the experience so special.

                            This was our Xmas gift and Dad's 62nd Birthday. We ski'd, snowshoed, massages at The Waters in Tofte and cooked and ate. We drove up to Gunflint Tavern for a fantastic meal!

                            Thanks for a beautiful home! A perfect size for 3 families. The setting is so peaceful and we all really enjoyed our getaway. Except for a few snafus(went in the ditch the first night, oops) it made for a great memories. We will have to come back soon.

                            Overall, very nice vacation spot! Clean and well taken care of. Plenty of space and great views. Only drawback would be the futon in the basement, which was not very comfortable (but then again, what futon is??). We felt that having a pull-out couch in the loft area would have been a better use of space and would have provided additional sleeping/more comfortable sleeping then the futon in the lower level. We would definitely consider staying here again for future visits!

                            Recommended for: Families with young children, age 55+, families with teenagers.

                            Manager response: Thanks Jessica! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and have already made plans to add a sofa sleeper in the loft. Greg and June

                            My family of 9 (6 adults, 1 infant and 2 large dogs) recently enjoyed a long weekend at the Ridge Chalet...we had a blast! The chalet was exactly as described, clean and welcoming, we all honestly felt like home. We had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy each others company comfortably. We took walks and enjoyed the wild flowers each day. We also we pleased with location, not too far from the Alpine Slide, Superior National Golf Course, and Grand Marais. When it came time to pack up, we were all agreed that we could use just a few more days! This was a special trip where many memories were created for my family, thank you!!

                            Recommended for: Families with young children, pet owners, romantic getaway, families with teenagers, girls getaway, tourists without a car, sightseeing.

                          About: Greg and June Amundson own and manage Lutsen Lodges Vacation Home Rental located in Stillwater, MN.

                          Why Lutsen:
                          The location was perfect for being close to the ski hill and yet far enough away to be perfectly located in the Superior National Forest

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We specialize in high quality large family homes away from the crowds but close enough to be within minutes from the areas most popular attractions.
