Guestbook comments from the manager

Twelve women from church thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful home. We thought it was especially thoughtful of you to have a large dining room table that seats 12 and was perfect for our group. We enjoyed 2 days of hiking, lots of laughter, sunshine, game playing and wisdom swapping. We are GLOW(God Loving Outdoor Women)

Great Stay, as always

  • 4 of 5

A group of guys have been meeting up for "mancation" for the last 11 years--we've now spent 3 of them at this house because it is simply a great place to stay. Foosball and Air Hockey are nice additions to this already great place.

Happy Full House

  • 5 of 5

We had 12 people come up to Lutsen to celebrate a birthday. The place was great and everyone had plenty of room. The kitchen was full of cooking utensils and tools and the wood-burning fireplace was awesome to warm up near after a long day of skiing. Easy drive to Lutsen mountain for skiing. I highly recommend.

Cozy north shore home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family Christmas vacation. We spent much of our time inside due to frigid temps and the kids loved the lower level. Appreciated the ability to seat all 11 of us in the kitchen for family meals.

Quiet place in the woods

  • 5 of 5

The Grand Lodge was the perfect place for my family to gather for a long weekend. It was clean, spacious and quiet with all we needed to be comfortable. We had breakfast and coffee on the deck which sports a new grill, spent the days exploring the woods and neighborhood and enjoyed a fire indoors as the evenings were cool as well as a campfire with friends on our last night. The caretaker stopped by soon after our arrival to check if we needed anything which was nice. My kids want me to make it an annual thing. Five stars for sure.
