Remer Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

Wow! Vacation homes like this don't come around very often. The Lady Slipper Lodge is located in the heart of the Chippewa National Forest in north cental Minnesota just 3 1/2 hours north of the Twin Cities. It offers privacy and serenity on a 30-acre woodsy point between a 54' deep 80-acre lake and a 25' deep 60-acre lake. The Lodge is just 90' from the the lakes on both sides of the point and there is a lake view out of every window.

The Lodge is the only home on one of the two lakes and it shares the other lake with only one other lake home. All the rest of the land all around both lakes is National Park, state or county land.

About Tony J Elfelt

Denise and I live in Nowthen, MN, which is a rural community 45 minutes north of Minneapolis. We have three adult children and four grandchildren. Denise runs our auction company called AAA Auction. I am a lawyer, but she lets me take the microphone and work as an auctioneer from time to time too.

Tony J Elfelt purchased this lodge in 1992

Why Tony J Elfelt chose Remer

As a teenager, I camped and fished at Big Winnie quiet a bit. I loved to hunt grouse too and on our trips to Winnie when we drove through the Remer area, I always thought that I would live to have a place where I could hunt grouse and fish right out my back door.

So when I began looking for a property, fishing, hunting and serenity were my main goals. I didn't want close neighbors and I wanted elbow room for kids, dogs, shooting guns and general revelry. I looked for two years before I found this property.

My wife, Denise, allowed me to have my dream when we bought this property in 1992. At that time there was only an old tar paper shack with cracks in the wall that were so big birds could fly in. It was love at first sight. Quiet. Beautiful. Majestic. I could close my eyes and see all of the memories that my family and friends would make in the years to come ---and we did.

What makes this lodge unique

Although the Lodge is modern and comfortable with many amenities, the comment that we hear most often is how peaceful the Lady Slipper Lodge is. It is truly a rare piece of land. It is the only piece of private property on Lower Milton Lake and when you are there you will see more wild life than you will other people. Its We cut many trails on our land and you are more adventuresome, there are many mile of hiking and ATV trails right out the back door that lead deep into the Chippewa National Forest.

While we don't have walleyes in our lake, we do have great panfish, northerns and bass. Hunters also visit us for the great grouse and deer hunting.

Beautiful, Quiet, and Comfy!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of four couples spent our annual memorial day weekend retreat at Ladyslipper lodge for the first time in 2013. We were very happy with the northwoods decor in house and the beautiful scenery surrounding the property. We rented the pontoon and it easily accomodated our whole group. The crappies were eagerly biting in shallow water and we quickly caught enough fish for a delicious lunch. The fish were all around 9-10 inches which is great for filleting. Some pike and bass also joined in the action.
We loved the fully stocked kitchen as each couple took turns preparing meals. The grill worked great and the big table allowed us to all sit down together to eat. There are lots of games downstairs including pool, ping pong, bag toss, ring toss, and others which we definitely enjoyed. The fire pit is huge and Tony has a lot of wood ready to use. We had a fire every evening.
The only drawbacks to this property is that you need to walk up a full flight of stairs to get to the main level which gets old fast. Also there were quite a few asian beetles in the house when we were there and many areas of the house hadn't been properly vaccumed in quite some time.

Awesome Autumn Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We had a very enjoyable stay at Lady Slipper Lodge in early September. This well-kept, high quality cabin has a unique setting on its own peninsula, with great walking trails through the woods. As you drive that last mile or so through the woods to reach the cabin, you'll feel like you are truly surrounded by nature, but with the comforts of home. In addition to fishing, there is plenty of yard space outside for lawn games. And the game room in the basement is great for evenings or rainy days. Even though you feel like you are secluded in your own private place, the town of Remer is an easy drive where you can find pretty much anything you need. Last but not least, the owner is pleasure to deal with, and very reponsive to questions. Thanks Tony!

Great Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Lady Slipper Lodge between Christmas and New Year's. What an absolutely beautiful place to celebrate with family! We had a wonderful time! The lodge was clean, spacious, and the PERFECT place to gather our whole family together for Christmas. The owner was helpful in answering all of our questions and concerns and was extremely pleasant and easy to work with. The first night it snowed and made the vacation stay complete. We went sledding, ice fishing, hiking, and skating. We enjoyed a warm fireplace, great conversation, games and FUN. Our grandson, age 2, had a wonderful time playing outside and fishing on the lakes. The photos are an accurate representation of the beauty of the lodge. We would highly recommend this place to anyone that is looking for a great getaway. It is quiet, peaceful, and absolutely gorgeous. We also were able to bring our dogs which was a special treat for them and us!

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at the LSL over Labor Day weekend. The weather was perfect, as was the cabin, the lakes, the trails, the ammenities. Our children (age 2 and 4) caught their first fish on the lakes and were hooked on fishing after that! The "cabin" (if you can call it that!!!) was beautiful, with every utensil/cooking item we needed in the kitchen.

We loved the games and movies that were available. The kids had treasure hunts and hikes through the woods. The trails and scenery was amazing. In Remer, the local gas stations were very helpful, and the ice cream shop was a favorite place :)

This was the perfect vacation for our family, and we will definitely be returning. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Amazing Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing family getaway at the Lady Slipper Lodge. The Lodge itself was beautiful. The views from inside the cabin were amazing & the pictures on the site don't do it justice, beautiful large picture windows and cabin decor.

There were all the amenities of home which made it very comfortable for all of us. Tony was very very easy to work with and answered every email or phone call the same day, making us feel very secure in the large amount of money we were sending him :)

Our family enjoyed the pontoon and seclusion on the lake. The entire time we were there we only saw one other boat on the lake! The fishing was amazing to, lots and lots of Northern were caught by all. The lodge had a great fish cleaning station outside which made it very convenient to clean all those fish!

There were also tons and tons of trails to go walking on or to take your 4-wheeler on. The seclusion of this cabin really fit our needs and was amazing.

There were only two down falls to this getaway:
1. The insane amount of flying creatures. Bring your bug spray and you might want to get some "yard guard" if you plan to use the fire pit as it was impossible with out it.
2. The second would be the water pressure in the house. If you're an avid showerer you'll be disappointed, as the water pressure in the house is lack luster, but we didn't mind too much as we were "roughing it" for the week :)

Our entire family enjoyed it so much we hope to make a yearly trip to the Lady Slipper Lodge!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. We are always very pleased to hear that others experience the same enjoyment as we do when we stay at the Lady Slipper Lodge. Regarding the water pressure, we noticed too that when we installed a hose in the upstairs shower recently. I think we'll go back to the way it was without the hose. The pressure was fine then. As for the bugs, just like everywhere else, they decend at sunset and are pretty nasty for 45 minutes or so. Other than that, since we are on a hill, there is always a nice breeze at the lodge and this helps make the house itself and the yard very pleasant. The fire pit though is at the bottom of the hill and it is protected from the wind, so mosquitos there are quite unavaildable.

House is located in a perfect area with awesome views and great fishing/boating on Milton lakes. I would love to visit this place again with my family and make a relaxing vacation out of it. Very private location and there are great trails to watch wildlife.

The Lady Slipper Lodge is on a point, a stone's throw from two lakes. The main attractions are the water, the woods, and the serenity provided by 30 acres on the Lady Slipper Lodge estate and thousands upon thousands of acres in the Chippewa National Forest. Fishing is awesome and most of the time you will be able to fish without seeing another soul or cabin. There are also hundreds of miles of trails open to snowmobilings and ATV's. Feel free to use, at no extra charge, the 17' canoe, kayak, the two small fishing boats or paddle boat at the Lady Slipper Lodge. A pontoon boat is also available at an extra cost. Also, after enjoying the magnificent sunsets, you may choose to visit one of the local taverns for some kareoke and refreshements or travel about 40 minutes from the lodge to a large casino.

Notes:
If you like peace and quiet, this is the place for you. You will be more than a mile from the nearest tar road at the end of a 1/2- mile driveway where nearly the only sounds you will hear will be those of nature. You may see another boat on the lake because there is a public access and it is a great fishing lake for sunnies, crappies, bass and northern. However, during the week, there is a good chance that you won't see another person at all. The Lodge was built in 1996. It has 23' high vaulted ceilings in the great room and an open foor plan so people in the kitchen can still be part of the festivities. The walls in the great room are knotty pine for that 'up north' atmosphere and the walls of the 3-season porch are a wonderful aromatic cedar. The Lodge is a 2-story walkout with a deck on 2 sides. The upper level is the main living area with 2 bedrooms with queen-sized beds and walk-in closets. The lower level also has 2 bedrooms with queens.
