at Caribou Highlands Lodge

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.

Top 5 Reasons Spring is a Great Time to Say “I Do!”

  • 2. Discounted lodging during off season
  • 3. Perfect temperatures for your guests (average temperature 60 degrees)  
  • 4. Less crowds at nearby state parks
  • 5. Perfect season for pictures – gorgeous Lake Superior Backdrop
