"The heavens declare the glory of God and the earth shows His handiwork." Reserve your stay at Lutsen Lakehouse and you will experience this passage from the Book of Psalms as Lake Superior's thundering waves crash against the ledgerock shoreline, northern lights dance across the sky, and a full moon rises over the big lake they call Gitchigummi. And that's just the view outside.
Inside, you will appreciate the comforts of a beautiful, professionally-cleaned home. Unwind by a soothing fire in the massive wood-burning fieldstone fireplace, enjoy a meal from the fully-equiped kitchen and family times around the handcrafted dining room table, and then let the sound of Lake Superior’s waves lull you to sleep.
Enjoy all this and be just a few minutes from Lutsen Ski Resort, Superior Hiking Trail, Superior National Golf Course, North Shore cross-country ski trails, and a short drive to Grand Marais and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. After a day exploring, Tesla and electric vehicle owners can plug in to the fast-charging outlet at the house.
Special memories are made at Lutsen Lakehouse! On behalf of our family, I (David) look forward to being in touch with you.
