About the Property

Rental Cabin in Lutsen, MN with 3 bedrooms & 2.5 bathrooms views lake superior

Lutsen Lookout is rental log cabin in Lutsen, MN. The log cabin was completed in 2013. It's located 1-mile from the Lutsen Ski Mountain and Superior National Golf Course, within the Superior National Forest. While the charming towns of Lutsen, Tofte and Grand Marais are nearby, you will feel secluded in this private setting on 5+ acres of pristine wilderness, surrounded by 100's of acres of Superior Nat'l Forest and Minnesota State Scientific and Natural Area.
Unique features like the 28' rock fireplace, tree trunk center island, handcrafted cedar tree, claw foot bathtub, heated floors and the spectacular 30' wall of windows make this property a one-of-a-kind, and original to the scenic north shore.
Lutsen Lookout is the perfect place for gatherings with friends and family. The large open spaces, luxurious amenities, gorgeous views and natural surroundings provide that up-north atmosphere to relax even those most stressed out. Plenty of outdoor activities await you right outside the front door. Or hunker down with movies, board games, crafting, wildlife viewing or a good book. Prepare your own meals in the large modern kitchen and gather around the 'stump' for great conversation. Or venture out to one of the nearby restaurants or pubs just a mile or two away.

A large screened porch (with seasonal windows) connected to a 65' deck overlooking Lake Superior add to the living space and give you a feel of sitting with nature. The Superior hiking trails, Gitchi Gami bike trail, Ski slopes, Alpine slide, X-country trails, snowmobile trails and the Superior National golf course are all very close by.
Bears, Wolves, Lynx, Bobcat, Coyotes, Deer, Mink, Owls, Eagles and other wildlife make cameo appearances on the property. Come on up and enjoy all that Minnesota has to offer, at Lutsen Lookout.
NO SMOKING PROPERTY. Responsible renters must be 25 years old. Winter and Spring access require all-wheel or 4-wheel drive vehicles.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We have enjoyed traveling and exploring the US and many Countries overseas. The North shore of Minnesota has always been a special place with magnificent beauty. We're now able to spend time and share this property with friends, family and you!

Why the Owner Chose Lutsen, MN, USA:
Lutsen Lookout was built for luxury and privacy while maximizing the views or Lake Superior. Lutsen Lookout is a very comfortable 2400 sq ft home with an open design. It's located on 5.2 private acres of pristine land and surrounded by 100's of acres of State and Federal land. Nearby restaurants, bars, shopping areas and activities make it an ideal location. You can cross county ski, hike and snowmobile right from the front door. Due to the remote access, all-wheel or 4-wheel drive is required for winter rentals.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Located on a snowmobile trail with easy access to groomed cross county skiing and downhill skiing at the Lutsen Mountain. For warmer weather enjoy the nearby Lake Superior Hiking Trail, the Gitchee Gumee bike trail, Gondola rides the Alpine Slide or leisurely walks along Lake Superior beaches. Surrounded by woods, privacy and wildlife. Ideal for 2-3 families or couples. Nearby restaurants include Papa Charlies (2 miles), Lutsen Lodge (2 miles), Moguls Grille and Tap Room (2 miles), Coho Cafe (7 miles), Cascade Lodge (10 miles) and some great brew pubs and restaurants in Grand Marias (19 miles) ... and coming soon (2015) the North Shore Winery ... just a mile away.
