TRANQUIL BRULE RIVER, NATURE LOVER AND FISHERMAN'S RETREAT.

Brule Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

This rare 4-season home sits on 1,000 feet of private river frontage on the Brule river, (Bois Brule, Fr. burnt wood). The Brule river is a famous, spring-fed trout stream flowing north from Upper St. Croix Lake, at the continental divide, into Lake Superior. It is noted for it's natural beauty, quiet serenity and rich history. This rental home is a unique, cozy, architectural gem, filled with charm, nestled inside the Brule River State Forest.

The main area is an open floor plan with a wrap around deck and an area for outdoor dining, overlooking the river. The full kitchen is equipped with appliances and staples. There is satellite TV, Wi-Fi, high speed fiberoptic cable and a DVD player.

There are three bedrooms, including a master suite on the first floor. Two bedrooms and full bath are on the lower floor. Each room has large widows with beautiful views of the river approximately 50' away. The lower level sleeps 4-5 with a double bed and a single in one bedroom, which also includes a sink area, and a second bedroom with two single beds. Both lower bedrooms have doors leading out to a patio.

Nature surrounds this retreat with tranquil serenity and fresh, clean mornings to have your coffee sitting on the deck looking out at the river, or at the dock, watching the fish jumping and eagles soaring overhead.

Don your waders and fish in front of the house, or paddle a canoe upriver to cast a fly in one of the notable lakes, or contact one of the local guides for a fishing experience of a lifetime.

It's a must to take a canoe or kayak from the dock, up or down the gentle flowing Brule river viewing the elegant, old log homes built by original residents from the turn of the last century.

Begin at Stones Bridge and take a leisurely, 4 hour canoe trip, through an uncut natural northern pine forest that was the once the Voyageur's highway to the Mississippi and beyond, via the St. Croix River. The 'trip down from Stones' is dotted with small rapids here and there and passes 'Cedar Island' a stately, turn of the 20th century fishing camp, visited by five past presidents.

Step just outside the back door and take a long leisurely walk, ski or snow shoe, on one of the many nearby hiking trails or just head out into the woods. Or drive to one of the many trail heads on the scenic North Country Trail or Brule State Forest trails.

There are many area lakes. Nearby. Lake Nebagamon has groceries, restaurants, a swimming beech and boat landing. Drive north of Brule township 13 miles to the mouth of the Brule and picnic on the sandy shore of Lake Superior.

This property both beacons you to stop and relax, and be mystified by the awe-inspiring, 300 year old Norway and White pine forest that surrounds you, and it also enlivens you to get out and enjoy some of your favorite outdoor activities in an enchanting place.

About Clague Hodgson

This property has been in the family since it was built by Corrin and Mary Hodgson in 1963. It is a favorite spot, and we enjoy frequent visits and sharing it with others when we are not able to be there.

Clague Hodgson purchased this lodge in 1963

Why Clague Hodgson chose Brule

The Brule river is one of the most desirable river destinations in the US. It is home to five salmonid species and flows through an uncut natural northern pine forest. It was the once also the Voyageur's highway to the Mississippi and beyond, via the St. Croix River. We like the wildlife, natural beauty, and privacy of the property.

What makes this lodge unique

The quiet serenity, fresh air, natural beauty, wildlife, fishing, and privacy. I first crossed the river in a canoe with my parents in 1963, and we landed and camped on the property where the lodge now is located. We are now in the 4th generation of family at this place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Clague,



What a remarkable place you have here!



Memories of our time on the river over our past years keep flooding back. We are having an amazing time. Beautiful fishing, canoeing and kayaking, and we have already caught up with the neighbors upstream and said hello to the resident eagles.



We are in love with your place and can't wait to come next year. Can we sign up as annuals? What availability do you have for next year?



Hope all is well in Nebraska - rest assured, we'll save some trout for you.



Thanks,

Brian

Brule River experience

  • 5 of 5
My family's stay at this beautiful Brule River Lodge was everything I hoped it would be and more. I would recommend it to any of my friends or relatives. We found the lodge to be exactly like we expected based on the pictures and we found the propety very clean and well maintained.The owners provided answers to all possible questions before arrival including an extensive list of potential fun activities in the area. In addition the caretaker visited daily to pick up garbage and to check if we needed anything. We took day trips to the mouth of the Brule and the Apostle Islands, both of which I would recommend, and Lake Nebagamon is located only minutes away for supplies and more entertainment. We found the best times , however, were when we were on the river canoeing , kayaking or just sitting on the dock enjoying the wildlife, including deer and bald eagles, that visited the water right in front of the lodge. Outstanding experience that my family and I plan to repeat in the years to come.

A charming cabin on the Brule River

  • 5 of 5
This charming cabin on the Brule River is just total tranquility at its best!! After touring Duluth and Bayfield with my 85 yr old mother, we found this cabin to be a wonderful way to spend an autumn weekend. It has windows that ofter views in every direction. The place was a home away from home for us. A place to enjoy the falling leaves while walking in the woods. The setting with the river shimming in the sunlight and eagles flying overhead lingered in our minds long after we left. We enjoyed playing cards with the doors open to hear only to the wind chimes and light breezes. Another night was spent reading some of the interesting nature books that are on the books shelves there. This place offers so much besides walking in the woods, the river is perfect for canoeing, and there is plenty of trails for x-country skiing by the moonlight. It was completely furnished with everything that one could need. Canoes, life jackets, fishing poles, and books. Nice that there are convenient stores only 20-30 minutes away for those last minute supplies. It was just a blissful peace to enjoy the quiet nature in such a relaxing sitting. We will return in many seasons to enjoy the total tranquility of this place.
I would highly recommend this rental for anyone wanting to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature. The river offers fun and safe canoeing for the young and old. We'll be back.
