Your wedding day dreams will come true at Caribou Highlands Lodge on Lutsen Mountains.


Your magical day will be magnificent, when you say your vows in the presence of family and friends in the midst of the Lutsen Mountains with the distant vista of Lake Superior's brilliant blue bay. Minnesota's North Shore is known as a vacationer's haven and it draws guests from throughout the United States and Canada. Our Lutsen resort stretches out among the birch and pine below the maple ridge of the Sawtooth Mountains. And, these natural surroundings are beautiful in all seasons.

Choose Indoors or Out for Your Destination Wedding

Your day can be arranged for either indoors or out, for your wedding ceremony and wedding reception. Indoors we offer a newly renovated and decorated room with a wall of windows that face the courtyard with Moose Mountain just beyond. This can be arranged for your ceremony and/or for your reception with space for up to 100 guests, depending on your criteria for room setting. A second space is available in the main lodge for a group up to 50 guests.

Our outdoor weddings include options for under the wedding arch or on the lawn in the courtyard. Both venues have Moose Mountain as your photographic backdrop. Both vantage points are especially spectacular in the summer and fall, though we've hosted many winter weddings here as well. If there is one area of service where we excel, it is our flexibility to make your day as perfect as it can be. When you choose a North Shore destination wedding, even if the weather is unpredictable, the outcome doesn't need to be. Our professional staff is here to ensure a picture perfect day.
