While Minnesota’s rugged, densly-forested North Shore remains blanketed in fresh powder, it’s officially time to start thinking about spring’s inevitable arrival. For those who have never explored the North Shore from mid-March through April, early spring is positively the most tranquil time to visit historic Cascade Lodge. Minnesotans know all about how unpredictable springtime weather can be, especially in the weeks succeeding Spring Break. Some afternoons feel like summer, while others micmic winter’s hearth. Springtime perks include little-to-no foot (and vehicular) traffic, discounted lodging, and idyllic temperatures for last-minute wintery activities, such as snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, and snowboarding.
Cascade Lodge proudly acts as the North Shore’s premier activity hub—a centrally-located basecamp that pleasingly shares property with one of the Midwest’s most beloved state parks. In hopes of enhancing an already stellar escape to Lutsen, Minnesota, we’ve amassed 10 unique ways to embrace spring, ranging from head-turning waterfalls to awe-inspiring mountains and secluded wineries.
Start and finish each day of backcountry exploration, shoreline drives, and tasteful North Shore delights at Cascade Lodge, the state’s premier basecamp for all things Minnesotan. We share a property line with over 5,000 ares of state park land, perfect for hiking, snowshoeing, fat biking, Nordic skiing, and birding. Our on-site restaurant serves some of the yummiest classic Northern Minnesota eats, ranging from elk burgers to beer-battered cod and panko-crusted white fish. However, Cascade Lodge’s most alluring aspect is its eclectic mix of lodgings, including historic log cabins, newly-redesigned guest rooms, and spacious luxury homes. Cap each unforgettable springtime afternoon with a warm meal, a sunset stroll, and fireside stories after dark.
