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.

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.
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.
6 of us spent a long weekend at Lutsen Lookout and had a fabulous time. The place is amazing and has beautiful, colorful views right out the windows! The owner was very attentive to us, promptly answering emails and any questions, plus checking in to make sure all was well while we were there. The kitchen had everything we could've wanted (waffle maker, rice cooker, lots of gadgets). We enjoyed several bonfires right out back. The bathrooms are supplied with nice, luxury style soaps and shampoos. An added bonus is the newly-opened North Shore Winery is within walking distance! We strolled down there Sunday late afternoon and had a great time.
Absolutely beautiful house. The view and setting was spectacular. Everything you would ever need or want is there. We had eight People staying there and there was plenty of room for all. Highly recommend staying there.
Lutsen Lookout was wonderful! We had large group there for a long weekend. The place was super clean and well stocked. Plenty of beds for a larger group. The views are stunning and it was close to everything. The owner checked in with us on day one just to make sure we were okay. I would highly recommend Lutsen Lookout and would definitely stay there agin.
Our amazing best man and maid of honor hosted our combined bachelor/ bachelorette party at Lutsen Lookout. We had an incredible time! There is so much space that everyone was able to sleep comfortably. Ample room for parking all the vehicles. The kitchen had the most gorgeous island which was a common gathering spot as was the fire pit. The deck was a favorite for breakfast and morning coffee and the dining space was perfect for our group dinner. All in all the space is clean, stocked with all the necessary items and incredibly beautiful. We will definitely visit again!
This is our second year at Lutsen Lookout! It is so comforting to walk in and feel at home. So relaxing and great to have the whole family together in one place for the week. We had 2 two year olds this year and they loved it! Enjoyed the North Shore Winery - be sure to take in a wine tasting session!
We were very pleased with our stay at Lutsen Lookout this summer. The location is quiet and secluded, but not far from many of the things to enjoy on the North Shore (multiple state parks, Lutsen mountains, Grand Marais). The cabin itself was very beautiful (we especially liked the large open area and the windows and deck that allowed us to soak in the lake and woods). The owners were very easy to communicate with, and even gave some great tips for sightseeing--great hosts. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking gear and supplies, and the house had a nice selection of board games and movies to entertain us in the evening. My only small complaint was that one of the queen beds upstairs is overdue for replacement (most beds in the house were comfortable, but this one was quite saggy in the middle). Overall, a wonderful place to enjoy a long weekend.
Approximately half-way between the Lutsen Resort on Highway 61 and Lutsen Mountain Ski Resort. Beautiful views of Lake Superior. Surrounded by Minnesota Scientific and Natural Area (SNA) and Superior National Forrest as well as some private land.
