The Destination
Framed by the clear waters of Lake Superior, and with the Sawtooth Mountains as a backdrop, Lutsen's landscape offers tons of opportunities for outdoor recreation. Thanks to the perennially popular Lutsen Mountains ski resort—the largest in Minnesota—the township was hailed as the "King of the Midwest Hills" in 2009 by The New York Times. But even without snow, this resort area just 30 miles from Canada, as the crow flies, is a royal treat. Hop on the Mountain Tram, or hike the nearby state park trails to see roaring waterfalls as the rivers rush toward Lake Superior. Hit the links at Superior National Golf Course, or arrange a charter fishing trip on the lake. Or trade rustic pursuits for domestic ones and dive into the many restaurants and shops nearby in the quaint seaside village of Grand Marais.

The Digs
Peaceful and unique, Lutsen Resort on Lake Superior is a four-season retreat where Minnesota's North Woods traditions run deep. About three miles from the main Lutsen Resort campus, and just steps from the lake, the one- and two-story Sea Villas boast excellent views as well as easy access to fire pits, hiking and biking trails, and a playground area. Each villa features a different layout—two-story units have two bedrooms and either a third bedroom or loft sleeping room; one-story units have one bedroom and a ladder-access loft—though all include a kitchen, a wood-burning stove, and plenty of privacy. Meanwhile, the nearby guest services building offers an indoor pool, sauna, and whirlpool. Survey nearby attractions via complimentary Wi-Fi before sinking into a chair on the beach, partaking in a program, or embarking on a kayaking tour. Later, roast marshmallows on the shore beneath the stars.

The Diversions
During the day, hike the trails that wind among the birch, maple, and spruce forest and then head up to one of the many high points overlooking Lake Superior. Back at your villa, watch the ever-changing beauty of Lake Superior, or head over to the Main Lodge for a glass of wine in the fire-lit lobby. For a change of pace, the resort offers a robust calendar of free events and tons of free activities throughout the year. Or, simply relax with a massage at the WatersMeet Spa and Wellness Center.

Return to the rustic browns and white linen of Lakeside Dining Room for an unmatched wine selection offering an impressive selection of award-winning bottles—the restaurant has received an award from Wine Spectator Magazine every year since 2008—as well as contemporary cuisine or the catch of the day. Retire for the evening beside the stone fireplace, or rejuvenate in the lodge sauna before heading to your room with the crash of waves lulling you to sleep.
