The actual nightly rate varies greatly throughout the year and follows the resort rates.

About Jonathan Olson

Jenny and I have 3 children. We are an active family that enjoys the outdoors and loves the North Shore.

One of the most important values in our life is spending quality time together as a family and with friends. I hope that you will enjoy your time at our place as much as we do.

Jonathan Olson purchased this townhome in 1999

Why Jonathan Olson chose Lutsen

After just one memory filled action pack family get away in 1998, we realized that spending quality time together with our 3 children and friends is one of the most important values in our lives. We also realized that there was no other place on the North Shore..let alone the Midwest that had the luxury accommodations to fit our needs for both small and large groups and that offered so many activities for all ages.

Since building our unit in 1999 we have spent countless hours of playing, laughing, exploring, skiing, hiking, picking rock, biking, swimming, sitting in front of the fire place and looking at Moose Mountain from the deck.

What makes this townhome unique

The ski hill, Caribou Highlands Resort and our 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom Popular Ridge Unit 630 is where the non-stop fun and activities are for the entire family.

Fantastic location and cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time! There is an amazing amount of space, with more than enough bedroom/bathroom space for everyone. Clean, open, well furnished. We'll definitely be looking to come back to book again in the future!

Great townhouse and great location!

  • 5 of 5

There were 8 women in our group and the house was perfect for us - plenty of room. We came up to hike and there were plenty of options close by.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Ole’s Lodge. There were 3 families and we had plenty of room and bedrooms for all of us. Very nice space for a big group. Lots of fun things to do around this area too. We visited Grand Marais and spent time hiking and exploring all the state parks in the area. The girls had massages and body wraps at the Caribou Highlands (Woodlands) spa while we were there. It was one of the best massages we have ever had! Definitely recommend this property!

overall we enjoyed our stay at Ole's Lodge

  • 4 of 5

Looked very nice when we arrived, however, there were dirty dishes in the dishwasher yet and the extra towels for all the rooms were in the washer & dryers yet, so we had to finish those. The air conditioner in the bottom floor unit constantly ran and it was really cold! The TV in our master bedroom could be updated to a flat screen however, because it was very dated & didn't work well. Overall, though, it was clean & we plan to be back next year!

Owner's Response: Roger, I’m glad that overall you enjoyed your stay and plan on being back to Ole’s Lodge next year. Regarding the dirty dishes and the towels in the washing machines… the cleaner should have caught both of those… we are creating a check off list for them so they don’t miss those things in the future. Regarding the AC… I wish you would have called Steve the property manager…. he would have handled it for you. When it is really hot out …with 4 thermostats that control the unit, if the thermostat in the upstairs is set at a colder temp than the basement thermostat, the basement will keep blowing cold air.... I know that there were some other units at the resort that the A/C went out on or froze up because of the heat. Jonathan

Family Wedding at Lutsen

  • 5 of 5

Ole’s Lodge worked great for us. We had a family wedding at Summit Chalet. Ole’s Lodge was close, clean and had the room we needed for our family to stay in one place.
