Land of 10,000 Lodges

For each of Minnesota’s glorious lakes, there seem to be several lodges dotting the shorelines. From rustic log cabins in the north woods to majestic resorts on Lake Superior, there’s no shortage of retreats for slowing down, stepping back in time, and making lasting memories

In today’s increasingly frenetic world, there is no better pause button than to spend downtime at a resort or lodge. Thankfully, Minnesota is chock-full of them and has been since the late 1800s, when fishing camps sprouted up as quickly as loggers departed. Arriving by rail, affluent sportsmen of Minnesota and neighboring states gave rise to the first semblance of a true “man cave”: rather primitive, one-room, hand-hewn log sanctuaries heated by lone fieldstone fireplaces.

As roads and thoroughfares emerged in the 1920s, cars became more affordable, and the golden era of lakeside retreats exploded. Wealthy families streamed in from Wisconsin and Illinois, and the rustic dwellings took on the familiar log-cabin or lodge look, with the same (or larger) fieldstone fireplaces, knotty pine walls, massive beam-lined ceilings, and boulder foundations.

During this time, the north woods of Minnesota and Wisconsin became gangsters’ preferred playground, fueled in large part, of course, by Prohibition. Lodges often came with basements or separate cabins on the property devoted to stills and speakeasies. The likes of Al Capone, John Dillinger, and Baby Face Nelson chose Wisconsin for their solitude while other lesser known public enemies and bootleggers opted for the North Shore.

In the late 1940s and ’50s, landowners began adding cabins (mostly for housekeepers), which became profitable rental units as property values—and taxes—began to soar. Many other resort owners eventually had to sell to buyers, who promptly tore down what lodges and cottages had existed to build singular, massive “cabins.”

Despite years of tumult, many classic lodges survive, in most cases because they either found friendly benefactors who fell in love with the properties and couldn’t bear to see their demise, or because subsequent generations of families have devoted their lives to the care and upkeep of these treasures.

Today, these same generations run some of the best resorts in the Midwest, and generations of families return season after season, year after year—keeping traditions alive and making new memories for generations to come.

Here are several of the best properties that have sprung to life throughout the region, many of which have been around in some form since the early 1900s. Consider one for your next getaway. You might just get caught up in the nostalgic, laid-back vibe that any lodge worth its weight in, well, logs should provide.

Northwest

Brindley’s Harbor Resort

Enjoying the water is top priority for many guests at this family resort on Leech Lake. Brindley’s protected harbor has 37 slips (with electricity) and a 17-foot-wide launch ramp. Its onsite bait house keeps anglers well stocked. Accommodations include variously sized cabins, duplexes, and log homes, while the main lodge features a convenience store, game room, library, overstuffed leather chairs, and the requisite fieldstone fireplace. 9530 Pine Point Rd. NW, Walker, 218-547-1721, brindleysharbor.com

Chase on the Lake

On the shores of Leech Lake, this resort also offers access to the historic downtown. Guests can stay in a hotel room, condo, or the seven-bedroom home that comes with its own lakeside deck and beach area. Other amenities include an indoor lap pool, icehouses for rent, and a sauna next to a cold-water-plunge pool (kept at 65 degrees) modeled after the traditional Finnish pastime of enjoying a sauna before jumping into freezing water. 502 Cleveland Blvd., Walker, 888-242-7306, chaseonthelake.com

Douglas Lodge

On the southeastern tip of Lake Itasca, in the incomparable Itasca State Park, sits a series of 15 cabins, the historic Douglas Lodge—the oldest surviving building in the state park system, built in 1905—and the seasonally available Douglas Lodge Four-plex, built some 23 years later by the Civilian Conservations Corps. The complex offers rustic living combined with modern amenities such as air conditioning (not in the Four-plex), wi-fi, and a full-service restaurant. 36750 Main Park Dr., Park Rapids, 866-857-2757, dnr.state.mn.us/sate_parks

Naniboujou Lodge

In the historic Naniboujou Lodge’s dining room, the domed, technicolor ceiling, painted in bold Cree Indian designs, inspires awe as the largest native rock fireplace in Minnesota—a 200-ton work of art, measuring 20 feet tall. Canada lies about 20 miles east of Naniboujou’s deck—from where you can head to the shore’s northern most state park, Judge C. R. Magney, for its 3,000 acres of trails, plus the incredible Devil’s Kettle waterfall, into which half the Brule River disappears inside a pothole. Back at the lodge, keep a deck of cards on hand and avoid sensitive family discussions, as you won’t find phones, TV, or internet in any of the rooms. 20 Naniboujou Trail, Grand Marais, 218-387-2688, naniboujou.com

Activities include spa treatments, a ropes course, horseback riding, and a weekly tour of local breweries—or you can eat at one of four onsite restaurants and cafés. 5039 Tame Fish Lake Rd., Deerwood, 800-450-4545, ruttgers.com

Train Bell Resort

Yes, there is a 45-foot train, and yes, you can ride it. Still, the Train Bell Express is just one of many unique activities available alongside the crystal-clear waters of North Long Lake. The resort’s lakeshore cabins, condos, and grand lodge are open all year, and some seasonal activities include Charlie the Chicken’s famous chicken toss, minnow races, outdoor movies, and a resort-wide dance. 21489 Train Bell Rd., Merrifield, 800-252-2102, trainbellresort.com

Wilderness Point Resort

Between the cabins, the forest-hidden villas, and the private beach on Middle Cullen Lake, you’ll feel renewed after a week at Wilderness Point. For daytime activities, visit the boutiques of Nisswa and Pequot Lakes or take in a round of golf (miniature or regulation) on the nearby greens. 6316 Wilderness Rd., Pequot Lakes, 800-231-4050, wildernesspointresort.com

Southern

Cedar Valley Resort

Nestled in Minnesota’s bluff country, this resort features eight four-season cabins, with one, “Big Timber,” boasting a fully accessible first floor for guests with physical disabilities. In the summer, the Root River Bike Trail opens, with rental bikes available at the resort. Guests can visit Lanesboro, a 5-minute drive away, and explore Amish stores, plus a fish hatchery. Winter activities include tubing down the bluffs and horse-drawn sleigh rides. 905 Bench St., Whalen, 507-467-9000, cedarvalleyresort.com

Iowa

Honey Creek Resort

Located in the Honey Creek State Park on the 11,000-square-acre Rathbun Lake, Honey Creek Resort features plenty of indoor and outdoor activities. Take advantage of the state park’s naturalist programs or its miles of hiking trails, splash around in the indoor waterpark, rent out a boat, and check out the resort’s seasonal activities. Pick between the lodge, luxury cottages, and RV park—and let your vacation begin. 12633 Resort Dr., Moravia, IA, 866-797-5308, honeycreekresort.com

Wisconsin

The Abbey Resort

Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, is a quaint lakeside town to begin with, so when you add an upscale resort, you’re bound to have a fun, relaxing vacation here. Indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a marina, a 1,000-square-foot arcade, an award-winning Avani Spa, and seasonal activities for all ages can be found within this resort’s 90 acres, making every season the best season. 269 Fontana Blvd., Fontana, WI, 800-709-1323, theabbeyresort.com

Cable Nature Lodge

Named after the nearby town of Cable, Wisconsin, Cable Nature Lodge combines the best of natural, rustic beauty—located on 22 acres in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest (pronounced sho-WAH-ma-gun, if you want to sound like a local)—with creature comforts. Opened in 2005, the cedar-and-knotty-pine-paneled lodge houses seven rooms as well as the Rookery Pub, which offers more upscale, award-winning dining than its name suggests, with a seasonally influenced menu that incorporates fresh fish, steaks, and local produce. 20100 County Hwy. M, Cable, WI, 715-794-2060, cablenaturelodge.com

Camp Wandawega

​The proprietors here warn potential visitors to read their “Manifesto of Low Expectations” before booking any of the cabins or bunkhouse. “Vintage” here means old and unimproved, and that’s just the way David Hernandez and Tereasa Surratt like it. They believe in connecting people to the simple pleasures of simpler times. From a speakeasy getaway in 1925 to a house of ill repute in the ’30s, this place’s walls can sure speak volumes. Accommodations run the gamut, from “vintage” cabins and campsites to a teepee and a treehouse that provides a bird’s eye view of the camp’s namesake lake. W5453 Lake View Dr., Elkhorn, WI, No phone-visit airbnb.com for reservations, wandawega.com

Canoe Bay

Canoe Bay was named the “No. 1 Resort in the Midwest” by Conde Nast Traveler in 2016, but it’s not for families—it’s for adults. Those 21 and over can enjoy Canoe Bay’s 300 idyllic acres of romantic and peaceful getaways in Wisconsin’s hardwood forest. With your stay, enjoy a chef’s three-course tasting menu, complimentary in-room breakfast, a massive book and DVD library, and some old-fashioned outdoor adventures. In each luxurious lodging option (except for the simplified retreat of ESCAPE tiny homes), unwind with a Jacuzzi and king-size bed for a perfect night’s sleep. W16065 Hogback Rd., Chetek, WI, 715-924-4594, canoebay.com

Garmisch USA Resort

More than 90 years ago, local artisans built Garmisch USA Resort on the shores of Lake Namakagon with Bavaria in mind. Through its towering timber-beam ceilings, massive stone fireplaces, and warm wood paneling, the lodge retains an Old World charm unlike others in the area. Each cabin comes with its own personality—check out Blarney Castle, built like an actual castle, or the Chateau des Alpes, where you’re apt to break into a yodel. The resort’s Bierstube Lounge features an assortment of hearty German fare, including wurst, sauerkraut, and schnitzel. 23040 Garmisch RD., Cable, WI, 715-794-2204, garmischresort.com

Hawks View Cottages

With two lodges—one perched on a hillside cedar grove overlooking the Seven Hawks Vineyard—Hawks View Cottages is not your typical resort complex. Its second lodge, located one mile north of Fountain City, Wisconsin, sits on a high rugged bluff with stunning views of the Mississippi River Valley and surrounded by 60 acres of forest and vineyard. For a more intimate escape, try one of five cottages complete with wi-fi, full kitchens, and soaking tubs. Fountain City, WI, 651-293-0803, hawksview.net

Holiday Acres

From winter horse-drawn sleigh rides to windsurfing and hiking, there’s no shortage of seasonal activities here. A variety of lodging options are available year round that blend simplicity, comfort, and homeliness. As you enjoy your vacation, stay on the lookout for the local legendary animal, the Hodag—a 7-foot-long, frog-headed, half-dinosaur monster. 4060 S. Shore Dr., Rhinelander, WI, 800-261-1500, holidayacres.com

Pat’s Landing Resort

Located on the shores of Chief Lake and owned by Treeland Resorts, Pat’s Landing Resort has the lake views for summer fun and the snowmobile and skiing trails for winter lovers. Spacious cabins, luxury condos, and the historic Pat’s Landing Bar & Grill pair relaxation with all the fun you’ll have partaking in outdoor and family activities. 9630 Treeland Rd., Hayward, WI, 715-462-3874, patslandingresort.com

Spider Lake Lodge

Time seemingly stands still at Spider Lake Lodge. Built in 1923 of sturdy tamarack and cedar logs from the surrounding forest, it began as an outdoorsman’s rustic retreat. Today, it’s a stylish couples escape, where guests choose from seven distinctively designed guest rooms. Located at a dead end on the shores of Spider Lake, this adults-only, technology-free haven is the definition of serenity. 10472 W. Murphy Blvd., Hayward, WI, 715-462-3793, spiderlakelodge.com

Stout’s Island Lodge

In the late 1800s, Frank D. Stout used his lumber fortune to build a summer dream home on a 27-acre island on Red Cedar Lake. Modeled after the Adirondack resorts in upstate New York, Stout spared no expense, shelling out $1.5 million (that’s about $35 million today) in construction over the years. Entering the 1912 lodge today transports visitors to a bygone era as gleaming, wide-plank hardwood floors usher them into baronesque wealth and carefree days spent playing croquet, fishing, canoeing, or simply enjoying a good read. Choose from a variety of quaint cabins or main-lodge rooms. The full-service restaurant is open for continental breakfast (included with room), lunch, and dinner. 2799 27th St., Birchwood, WI, 715-354-3646, stoutsislandlodge.com

Treeland Resorts

This resort’s family owners have owned the land since 1912, when the resort was a dairy farm and logging sawmill. Since then, they have built 28 log cabins and added 10 motel suites at Treeland’s “The Original” Resort. Refuel at the restaurant, ice cream parlor, and bar before heading out to the resort’s beach, marina, pickleball courts, and greens for practicing putting and chipping. Treeland Resort was so successful, it started branching off, so check out its other lodging options on the Chippewa Flowage. 9630 Treeland Rd., Hayward, WI, 715-462-3874, treelandresorts.com

Wild Eagle Lodge

When you’re not on the sand in the summer, you can rent jet skis and boats onsite at Wild Eagle Lodge. Stop by the resort in the cooler seasons and explore the area by snowmobile and snowshoes. Unique family and children’s activities will fill your time, and when you need a break, the wide variety of lodging options provide the relaxation you crave. 4443 Chain O’ Lakes Rd., Eagle River, WI, 877-945-3965, wildeaglelodge.com
