The sun rays beat down through the open curtain, the sun has already risen as you lay in bed looking through the window. Enjoying your coffee has never been so breathtaking as it is this very second as you look onto Moose Mountain. The trees are green, the breeze is cool, and the temperature is warm this time of year. Being outside seems like the only way to spend the day so you and your husband decide to play a round of golf at Superior National Golf Course.

The course gave many opportunities to test out your new driver, and the greens were quick.

After the 27-hole course both you and your husband are ready for a cold drink and some food. Heading to Moguls Grille and Tap Room is the next stop. Greeted with warm smiles, you are quickly seated and brought the cold beer you ordered. After struggling to decide what to order, sharing some appetizers seems like the best option to try a little of everything.

As you leave Moguls you decide that continuing your activity-filled day outside will proceed with a chairlift ride to the summit of Lutsen’s Eagle Mountain. At the top, the Alpine Slide is a must, the half mile ride to the base has many twists and turns, that not only kids will enjoy but adu


lts too. Given a taste of the views from Eagle Mountain, you decide to take things up a notch by taking the Gondola to the top of Moose Mountain. The views are spectacular as the Mountain is 1,000ft over Lake Superior. As you gaze at the lake your husband basically has to pull you away to go explore some of the Hiking Trails. At the summit of Moose Mountian, the famed Superior Hiking Trail is located along with many other trails. As you are hiking to the scenic overlooks the breeze rustles through the trees, and the sun spills in from above.

While returning to the resort you saw many bikers pedaling along, wanting to join in on the

fun you and your husband check out a pair of complimentary bikes from the front desk. There is a drop off service at Ski Hill Road with the perfect access point to the Gitchi Gami Path. After an hour or so riding the paved pathway you decide it is time to head back to the resort. Relaxing by the pool before dinner seems like the perfect way to spend the next hour.


Deciding to return to Moguls Grille and Tap Bar is no hard decision when the food and drinks from earlier in the

day were delicious. Greeted by the smiling wait staff, they seat you at a table while you share the events of your day. A cold beer is a must while deciding on entrees, you have the Chicken Ranch Flatbread while your husband enjoys the Prime Rib Sandwich. After a couple more drinks you decide it’s time to head outside once again.

The volleyball court allows you to reminisce about your high school days as you play your husband. The basketball court lets your husband do the same, as he was All-American in high school. The tennis court is open so you use the complimentary rackets to play a few sets. The day has passed by quickly, as you notice the sun is no longer in the sky. The moonlight guides you to the crackling bonfire where free s’mores await to be assembled. After roasting more marshmallows than you care to admit, you sit with your husband looking at the fire. Strolling back to your room hand in hand you can’t wait to replay this day tomorrow.
