The best we could have asked for!
We were extremely impressed with Lutsen's staff! We wanted our wedding to feel like a vacation for ourselves and our guests, and our coordinator, Sine, took note and helped us feel relaxed the whole time. If you're looking for a great venue with an "up north" feel to it (and you don't mind the drive), Lutsen is the place for you! We will be coming back for anniversaries for years to come!Sent on 06/26/2019
