  • Our special wedding day

    "We were looking for a great place to have an outside wedding up in the North Shore area. After finding pictures on the internet, we contacted the owners of the Grand Retreat, to see if they allowed it. They did indeed, in fact they offered us a weekend to check it out ahead of time. We fell in love with the place. But because it was in December, we really couldn't scope out the land as well. So in June, when my family and I were camping in Schroeder, I asked if we could check out the property again to get a feel for the wedding layout. They aloud us to another quick visit, when there was no occupancy. When I asked for recommendations for an officient, and about catering options, they were right on it. I had answers right away, or within a day if they weren't sure. When the time grew closer to our wedding date, they were in constant contact with us offering any help we needed. Our wedding day ended up being beautiful! We created great memories in this beautiful place, with great outside pictures along the creek and wilderness type settings. The cabin was very spacious for the whole crowd and for all of us to sleep. Our family, relatives and friends were very impressed with the Grand Retreat. During our week stay, we enjoyed both indoor and outdoor fires. We enjoyed sitting on the deck over looking the back yard, listening to the sound of the creek. We also did plenty of exploring in the surounding areas. We even drove up to the border and found the beautiful waterfall of the Pigeon River, in the Grand Portage State Park. I can't wait until we can visit again. I very much recommend a family stay or even a special event here. Thanks again for the great stay here!!"

  • Great Visit!

    "We really enjoyed this Sea Villa unit. It was very clean and comfortable. Our family loved the pool and hot tub, not to mention Lutsen Mountain! The view was fantastic. Also, the unlimited wood for the fireplace was appreciated. Our only issue was one of the beds in the second bedroom . . . hard for two to sleep here as it was pretty saggy. Thank you for our great family weekend getaway!"

  • Another wonderful Thanksgiving in Lutsen!

    "This was our second Thanksgiving in a row at this town home and we hope to be back for more. Our family has been enjoying Thanksgivings in Lutsen for over a decade - so we can make an honest comparison - and this is a very nice unit. It's large enough for 3 families to comfortably spend 4 nights together. I'd agree that the main level living room is a bit small for a group as large as the home can sleep - as others have noted - but it's no different than any other unit of this style in the complex, so definitely nothing to be concerned with. In general the home is great, always prepared for our stay and the kitchen definitely allows for anything that you might want to whip up - including Thanksgiving dinner for a large group. The views are absolutely wonderful and the location within the complex is very convenient. Caribou Highlands is our favorite resort close to the hill, and being so close to the ski hill itself is another added perk. Whether you're skiing, hiking, relaxing by a fire or visiting all of the fun spots up and down Highway 61, this is a great place stay. Add to that the owner is very friendly and easy to work with as well, which is yet another perk of renting this town home. We'll be back and you should stay here too if your travel plans are bringing you to the Lutsen/Tofte area."

  • Winter cabin weekend

    "Five of my best friends and I wanted to get away from the Twin Cities to ski for the weekend, this was the PERFECT cabin for our trip! It is the quintessential cabin home and is in such a beautiful location. We literally woke up the first morning to a sunlit view of the lake and deer in the yard. Plus, it's less than five minutes down the road to the ski hill! The kitchen is fully equipped, the towels are soft, the beds are cozy, and it's the perfect open living space to gather around the fire and play games. We are already planning our return for a summer getaway!"
