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.

THE ULTIMATE NORTHWOODS DESTINATION

  • 5 of 5
I have been staying here for a decade now and each return visit improves. John and Linda Reardon are the quintessential hosts. One's needs are anticipated and met. The quality of the facilities, from finishes and fixtures to house and groundskeeping, is impeccable. If privacy, comfort, cleanliness and beautiful natural surroundings are what you seek, as I do, look no further.

EXCELLENT STAY

  • 5 of 5
My Dad and I had our first grouse hunt and spent the weekend in the Timberdoodle Cottage. It was an excellent place to stay and we had a blast. John and Linda made sure we were well taken care of and checked in numerous times to see how our hunt was and if we needed anything. John was very helpful in recommending some areas to hunt and we had a great first grouse hunt and hope to return again next fall. During our 3 days there we put up over 20 grouse and had a blast.

GROUSE HUNTING EXCURSION BEFORE BUSINESS MEETINGS

  • 5 of 5
On a business trip to WI, a colleague and I were able to squeeze in a short grouse hunting trip. Our brief stay at the Ruffed Grouse Lodge (we stayed at the Timberdoodle cottage) was excellent! John and Linda were able to help us line up full service guides that were excellent too! I look forward to returning, not only the North Woods, but to the Ruffed Grouse Lodge and hunting with the Ides Guides gang!
