Minnesota’s oldest resort, Lutsen Resort, traces its roots to 1885 when the rugged natural beauty of Lake Superior’s North Shore prompted Charles Axel Nelson, a young Swedish immigrant who was a commercial fisherman plying the shore, to establish his homestead overlooking the lake. He called it “Lutsen.”

Lutsen began to attract visitors who came to enjoy the rustic wilderness setting. Known as a friendly haven for weary travelers, the family home evolved into one of Minnesota’s favorite destinations.
