www.RuffedGrouseLodge.com FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT RUFFED GROUSE LODGE, TIMEBERDOODLE AND THE COTTAGE AT ELK RIVER FARM.

Ruffed Grouse Lodge is a private 4 bedroom, 2 bath guesthouse that can comfortably accommodate up to eight people. The rustic interior is beautifully appointed with furnishings from the owner’s extensive personal collection and is accented by hunting and fishing memorabilia. The Lodge has an open floor plan with vaulted ceiling and log features. The living area holds a pool table, a 40' HDTV, a Dish Network satellite system, Wi-Fi, a CD stereo, a VCR and DVD. There are two comfortable dining areas. A fully equipped kitchen has custom cabinets, gas appliances, dishwasher and microwave. A Weber barbeque grill is included. A large sun porch with unobstructed views overlooks a quiet bay on Wilson Lake.

TIMBERDOODLE, a 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage, is steps away from the lake. It is furnished with a queen bed, a sitting room with HDTV, and a compete kitchen. Timberdoodle is the perfect cottage for two or additional relatives of families staying in the Lodge.

Ruffed Grouse Lodge and Timberdoodle grounds are bounded on the south by a private shoreline on the 351-acre Wilson Lake, which is connected to the extensive 1200-acre Phillips’ Chain of Lakes. A downstairs door in the Lodge leads directly to the lake and guest dock. There is a private sandy swimming beach with a fire pit and a swim raft.

ORGANIC GARDENS, FRESH EGGS & RASPBERRIES!

Organic gardens abound at Ruffed Grouse Lodge and guests are invited to pick fresh vegetables and raspberries. Chickens free range on the grounds and children delight in gathering eggs from the nests in the coop.

ITS LIKE OWNING YOUR OWN VACATION HOME THAT SOMEONE ELSE MAINTAINS!

Ruffed Grouse Lodge is located in Elk Township, three miles from Phillip’s town center. Elk is in the heart of Price County, the Ruffed Grouse Capital of the World as designated by the Ruffed Grouse Society and is in the center of Wisconsin’s Northwoods with over 1.2 million acres of huntable land and the largest ruffed grouse and woodcock population in the nation.

HUNTERS RETURN WITH THEIR DOGS EVERY FALL TO PURSUE THE ELUSIVE 'WINGED DYNAMITE'

ELK RIVER FARM, Ruffed Grouse Lodge’s adjoining sister property, now has a newly built, beautifully appointed, 1 bedroom cottage. A Wolf Gas Range, Subzero Refrigerator and In-drawer microwave complete a custom crafted kitchen. A tile shower and granite countertops make our new cottage the top of the spectrum of properties in the area. ERF is designed for a couple looking for a secluded hideaway. Sorry, we do not allow children or pets at the Cottage.

The COTTAGE AT ELK RIVER FARM overlooks the Elk River and has very private access to a 2-mile secluded stretch of the river. There is a private boat launch for our guests who want to fish the Elk River for Muskie, Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Bluegills and Crappies. Canoes and kayaks are handy for a peaceful trip along a beautiful stretch of the river where wildlife is abundant.

ELK RIVER FARM HAS A UNIQUE FEATURE NOT FOUND ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE NORTHWOODS!

The owners transformed a 19th century barn foundation to create a 'Karesansui,' or Japanese 'dry landscape garden.' The garden holds a carefully composed arrangement of indigenous rocks, water features, moss, pruned trees and shrubs. Small stones are raked to represent ripples in water. The 'Karesansui' is meant to be observed from a vantage point outside the garden. It is intended to reflect the intimate essence of nature, and to aid relaxation and the contemplation of life. The owners are students of Sukiya lifestyles and are delighted to share this special feature of Elk River Farm with interested guests.

Ruffed Grouse Lodge and Elk River Farm are connected through forested walking trails. Both locations have fire pits with free firewood and picnic areas, which are perfect for family gatherings.

Alumacraft fishing boats, canoes and kayaks are included at both Ruffed Grouse Lodge and Elk River Farm. A pontoon boat, a Yamaha 8hp outboard motor, and a MinnKota trolling motor are available for daily or weekly rental. For guests bringing their own boats, there is a public landing serving Wilson Lake one mile from the Lodge. There is also a private boat launch for access to the Elk River.

RGL is pet friendly. There is a free, sheltered, heated dog kennel. There is a $20 daily charge for crated dogs staying with their owners in the Lodge

Linda & I are retired Television Entertainment Industry Executives. We are outdoor enthusiasts and have been hosting families, corporate executives, grouse hunters, fishermen and winter sportsmen at Ruffed Grouse Lodge for over 10 years.

John & Linda Reardon purchased this lodge in 1999

Linda grew up in nearby Park Falls and family members are nearby. Her brother Terry Ides has lived here his whole life and knows the Northwoods intimately. Terry owns and leads Ides Guides, the best grouse guide service in Price County, the Ruffed Grouse Capital of the World. We have been hunting grouse with Terry for over 35 years. See his link on RuffedGrouseLodge.com

One of the first resorts on Wilson Lake was situated on this choice property. The grounds are gently sloping with stairless access to the lake. The history of the area is fascinating and our bay is quiet, quiet, quiet except during the fishing opener and the 4th of July when excited fishermen and families celebrate summer.

Elk River Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Linda & John,
The cottage is so nice I almost don't want to write a review because it will never be open again. We had a great couple days there. The things you have done with the place and the property make it both relaxing and fun to be at. The place is very interesting and John thank you for showing us some of the other properties-they were also beautiful. Thanks again we will make it back in the near future.

Great family getaway in the north woods!

  • 5 of 5
John and Linda were great! The house was spacious, well stocked, and in the middle if a beautiful property. The bedrooms were large and comfirtsbly furnished. We enjoyed relaxing, cooking, fishing, hiking, reading sightseeing on nearby towns And The views were fantastic. Gushing in the lake was average, but the river exceeded expectation. We will definitely be back!!

Rustic Luxe is Cottage at Elk River Farm

  • 5 of 5
This cottage, farm and river will take your breath away, especially if you are from a dense urban metropolis! The cottage is the most beautiful and serene getaway we have had the pleasure to stay at in quite a while. The owners are the most delightful and gracious hosts you will find, and they really love what they do. Everything right down to the smallest detail is done with care and thoughtfulness. I love the fresh farm eggs, the gorgeous fully outfitted kitchen (for those like me who prefer to cook than eat out), and the screened in sun room was perfect for enjoying morning coffee while looking out on the scenic Elk River. We also enjoyed modern conveniences of wi-fi, and a large flat screen TV. The Japanese Garden was a rare gem, and we could not take enough photos of it. This was the best of both worlds in one, where we could enjoy the rustic north woods activities, and then return to modern day luxury at the end of the day. Thank you John and Linda, we cannot wait to return!

From the minute that we arrived, John and Linda made us feel so at home. They think of everything, and this is the most beautiful "cabin" we have ever stayed in. We called it a cabin, but it is really a cottage on the river. It has the best of everything. The property is so peaceful. We enjoyed seeing the chickens and the the Japanese landscape garden is beautiful. This was our second year staying here, and we are coming back next week to stay at one of their other cabins with our grandson. The only problem is that we didn't want to leave! We absolutely loved our stay. Thanks John and Linda for making our stay perfect!

Relaxing Extended Family Vacation--including pets!

  • 5 of 5
John and Linda, thank you for your warm and gracious welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at RGL. The two of you and the lodge made everything easy--plenty of space, everything we needed, and lots of extra touches. The little grandsons loved the chickens and eggs, the golf cart rides (we were sure you were going to tip on that one corner at the end of the drive, and still marvel that the four-year-old figured out how to operate the brake), the treks through the woods, the pontoon ride up the river, the marvelous fresh lettuce, the eagle, the loons, the deer, the otter or beaver (we never did find out which--it was swimming near the dock on the lake one evening). We really enjoyed chatting with you in the evenings, and watching the dogs romp in the yard. Izzie and Keiko had their first-ever big adventures on their own--well, except for a long rope connecting them to each other; they appeared to be in heaven!

Ken and I were awed by the creativity and energy that you two expend on your properties and guests. The river buildings and grounds are amazing. I hope that when and if your daughter does get married, she still wants to do it there, because it is perfect.

Fabulous location and gracious hosts! I have many family ties and memories to the Phillips area. By pure luck, we found the Ruffled Grouse and could not have been more surprised to find this gem. Beautiful property, wonderful hosts and all the comforts off home. We hope to be back! Linda & Steve (Midhurst Ontario)
