Have We Got a Deal for You! Ours Resort is a special place any time of year, and it’s a wonderful destination in the winter. It’s located just one mile from the Lutsen Mountain ski resort, which has great ski slopes. There are also nearby snowmobile and cross country ski trails. Even if you’re not into outdoor activities, it’s hard to beat sitting in front of a nice fire looking out at Lake Superior. Aaaahhhhhh......

1/2 PRICE! Sound interesting? We’re making it even more affordable than usual!

It consists of six cabins on Lake Superior in Lutsen, MN. Each cabin is fully furnished--you only need to bring your food, clothes, and personal items.
