Fall – The Season of Romance



7 Things to Do on your Lake Superior Fall Color Getaway at Lutsen Resort

  1. Guided Hikes. Not sure where to go? Let our expert Activities Staff take you to the best spot for great Fall Colors and less people. There are also trails around the resort for easy leaf peeping.
  2. Fireplaces is every room. Apart from the Main Lodge, every room at Lutsen Resort on Lake Superior has a fireplace. Is there anything more romantic than that? Bonus: Bonfires on the beach happen every night!
  3. Maple Syrup Tours. Once a week, our Activities Staff take guests out on a Maple Syrup tour, where guests are able to observe the process and one of our local maple syrup operations and taste test the product!
  4. Dining in the Strand. The Strand Waterfront Dining Room has a romantic atmosphere and a lengthy wine list.
  5. Live Music. There’s live music on-site at the resort on Saturday evenings in the lobby as well as other areas in Lutsen.
  6. North Shore Winery Tours. A few times a week, the activities department offers shuttles to the North Shore Winery. Enjoy the wines without worrying about the drive!
  7. Wave Watching. The resort has one of the largest Lake Superior beaches for watching the gales of November roll in. Our cozy lobby is also a great spot to curl up and watch the lake.

10 Activities for Kids Under 10

Apart from throwing rocks into Lake Superior and enjoying the swimming pool, what else is there for younger kids to do at Lutsen Resort?! It’s a question we get frequently so we wanted to tell you some of our favorite activities for kiddos under 10! Comment below and let us know what yours are.

1. T-shirt Tie-Dying. Our Activities Crew started this activity this year and it’s been a huge hit! Every Wednesday from 1:30-4 pm. Bring your own shirt or purchase one of ours for $15.

2. Guided Hikes. Our guided hikes are for all ages but kiddos especially enjoy the opportunity to ask questions and explore. Their favorite are the Waterfall Tours!

3. Kids Pizza and Movie Night. 1-2 times per week we host a kids pizza and movie night. The kids gather in our yurt and watch an age appropriate movie, while the parents have the opportunity to enjoy a dinner on their own.

4. Berry Picking. In late July and early August, you can find raspberries on property here at Lutsen Resort, and you can find blueberries further inland!

5. Kids Camp. Kids Camp happens 3 times per week, each with a different theme. The themes are Explore, Create and Challenge!

6. The Alpine Slide. The Alpine Slide and Gondola are located just up the road at Lutsen Mountains!

7. The Game Room. Air hockey, ping pong and a variety of other games – kids have a blast in the game room.

8. S’mores around the campfire. Did you know that we give our complimentary s’mores kits? Just ask at the Front Desk!

9. Swimming in Lake Superior. Lutsen Resort is unique in that it is located where the Poplar River flows into Lake Superior. The warmer river water makes our beach an ideal spot to take a dip!

10. Rock picking and walks on the beach. Take home a few rocks from the beach to remember the trip. Bonus points if you can get your kiddo to hold your hand!
