You will feel the serenity of this peaceful place as you gaze out through the great room 28' high wall of windows overlooking Lake Superior. Your group can spread out in 3,000 sq ft of open floor plan and relax without feeling cramped or crowded. Cozy up to our towering custom see-through fireplace, or relax under the Milky Way at our large outdoor fire pit. Eat casually at our handcrafted tree trunk center island or more formally with table seating for 8+. The charming towns of Lutsen, Tofte and Grand Marais are nearby and offer all of the conveniences you can use. Day trip to the Canadian border or Split Rock lighthouse, or hike the nearby Superior Hiking trails. Lutsen Lookout has unique features you won't find anywhere else, like an outdoor ski gondola with intimate seating for two, and an outdoor hand-crafted sauna. A claw foot tub in the master bathroom awaits you after a day of nearby downhill skiing, hiking or x-country skiing. In-floor heat keeps the toes nice and toasty throughout the cabin. Get lucky and see some of our wildlife neighbors like deer, fox, owls, eagles, coyotes, wolves, lynx, bobcat, pine marten and black bear who may make an appearance..
Lutsen Lookout is the perfect place for gatherings with friends and family. The large open spaces, luxurious eco 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 good wi-fi, movies, board games, cribbage, checkers, crafting, or a good book. Prepare your own meals in the large modern kitchen which has it all! 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 connect you with the surrounding 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.

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.
What makes this Cabin unique

Fantastic location for a ski weekend
Just wrapped up a ski weekend at Lutsen Lookout. The property was beautiful, roomy and clean. There is an incredible view from anyplace in the house. The setting is a very private secluded and surrounded by nature. The property was stocked with everything we needed for enjoying our family time together. For our family the best part was that it is a 3 minute drive to the base of Lutsen ski area. Our group of skiers would start and finish skiing at different times during the day and it was so easy to just hop in the car, pick them up and then be back at the house in less then 10 minutes. The sauna was a great way to relax after a day on the hills. Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, had a large fridge and plenty of seating for a large group.
Close to Skiing, the Winery, Bars and Restaurants ... Yet so far away from the crowds. That's the beauty of Lutsen Lookout. We're tucked into the Superior Nat'l Forest ... with nature all around ... but just a short drive takes you to all the conveniences you need or want.
Thanks for visiting and hope you come back again! Try the summer or fall too. Awesome waterfalls and hiking ... or the Alpine Slide at Lutsen Mountains is always fun.
Outstanding as usual
I have rented this home 4 times now, I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Lutsen.
Todd is responsive, professional and flexible. If Lutsen Lookout is available, rent it.
Based upon the VRBO listing, photos, and reviews my wife and I had high expectations for Lutsen Lookout and we were not disappointed!! Our stay was nothing short of magical! Todd was absolutely great to work with while planning our trip and was quite prompt and responsive with questions and details. The property is incredible! It is obvious Todd and Pam put their heart and soul into designing the home and they truly made us feel welcome. Lutsen Lookout is a truly special property and we can't wait to go back! Thank you Todd and Pam!
The real heart-n-soul of Lutsen Lookout is the nature that surrounds you up there. The Superior Forrest is vast and unfolds right outside our front door. The magical views of lake superior and the warmth of a log cabin ... make leaving city life behind ... easy.
Oh ... and thanks for noticing the details!! We did a lot of planning to make it right!
This is a beautiful property that is well maintained. The owners obviously take great care in making sure their guests have all the comforts needed to have a great stay. Our family enjoyed this house and the surrounding area very much during the time we spen there. Thank you.
We have rented from many VRBO's and know what it's like. We try to include all of those little things that get missed in most rental properties. So ... thank you for noticing and we look forward to seeing you up the north shore again!!
Our teenagers squealed with delight when we walked through the door! And they are hard to impress!
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cabin! You have thought of everything and exceeded our expectations! The cabin was spacious, comfortable and fully equipped with everything you might need.We hope to come again someday.
That's really a good sign ... when the teens are impressed and enjoy a family weekend! Nice job to you for organizing a great weekend!
Gorgeous! Wonderful location. Close to the slopes but secluded in the woods.
Our family had a great time at Lutsen Lookout. We loved the sauna and the fireplace! In a huge blizzard, they kept us warm and cozy. We enjoyed skiing and snowshoeing close to home. Watching the birds, deer and other woodland creatures was so relaxing in this serene setting. We hope to return some day!
Yep ... that's the way I like to suffer thru a North Shore blizzard!!
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.
