Hibernation House at Lutsen

  • 15 Guests
  • 5 Bedrooms
  • 8 Beds
  • 4 Bathrooms

Listen to the sounds of the Poplar River as you drift to sleep or relax on one of the decks in the high woods at Lutsen Mountians. Our unit is located at the very end of the road facing away from the rest of the resort, giving you the bonus setting of the fastest ski-out access on-site and total privacy without giving up access to all the resort amenities like the indoor and outdoor pools.

Hibernation House is a beautiful two-story home with a lower-level walkout basement.  You will have ski-in and ski-out access right out your front and back doors to the high-speed lift on Moose Mountain. It's truly one of the nicest Poplar Ridge Homes at Lutsen. With five bedrooms spread out over three levels, this home is ideal for groups of up to 14 people allowing multiple families to still have their own spaces. Your stay also comes with access to the indoor and outdoor resort pools, fitness rooms, etc. at Caribou Highlands Resort on Lutsen Mountain.
