Leech Lake Lodge Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom (Plus Loft) 4 Bath 7200 Square Foot Luxury Home

Bring the whole crew to enjoy the beauty of Leech Lake and the Chippewa National Forest. This 7200 square foot luxury home is situated on 200 feet of Leech Lake shoreline. It has 4 traditional bedrooms, a large bunk room, a loft, and a pull out couch downstairs to provide your group with plenty of sleeping room. The main floor of this wonderful home has a huge vaulted great room with a stone fireplace and unbeatable views of the lake - an absolutely perfect place to gather the family around to trade fish stories or share a glass of wine. There's a large eat in kitchen, formal dining room and a separate casual eating area on the main floor as well. The lower level of the home has a large screen TV, pool table, wet bar, bubble hockey game and a full weight/exercise room. The upper level has two wonderful loft areas (again with amazing views of the lake) with spacious seating areas and lots of books if you need a little time to yourself. The bunk rooms are in their own private area on the upper level as well. Outdoors there is a large deck off of the main floor and a large patio off of the lower level. The fire pit near the lake is perfect for watching the sun set as everyone gathers around to roast marshmallows and reminisce. If that's not enough to keep the crew occupied there's also a three season room with a hot tub located just off of the main floor deck. There are two covered boat slips in our harbor to keep your boat(s) during your stay. The Isle Harbor development, in which the home is located, has a playground, basketball court, sand beach, fish cleaning house, and private boat launch - all of which are available for you and your family to enjoy. If you're looking for a lake vacation near the Twin Cities check out our property on Lake Minnetonka - VRBO listing #396680.

I love lakes and lake homes - in particular their almost magical ability to bring families together in a way that few other environments can. We purchased this home in the winter of 2013 with the intent of making it available to families and larger groups so they can enjoy the beauty of Leech Lake and the Chippewa National Forest together, without having to retreat to separate hotel rooms or cabins every evening.

Chris Ripley purchased this lodge in 2013

Leech Lake Lodge is simply the perfect home for family gatherings and larger groups. Situated on the lightly developed northeast side of Leech Lake the home provides an 'up-north' environment unlike any other.

The size of the property along with all of the amenities offered both at the home itself as well as in the Isle Harbor development (pool table, hot tub, exercise room, wet bar, sand beach, basketball court, playground, private boat launch, fish cleaning house, hiking trails, covered boats slips, etc...).

AWESOME PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home in Isle Harbor. We had 11 adults and 8 kids and lots of room for everyone to enjoy the week. Very spacious, clean, and plenty of rooms. Enjoyed the hot tub the first few days. Then was cleaned and strong chemical smell. Should of let the caretakers know, they said they would of changed the water. But we had plenty to do. Played games, kids went swimming on the beach a short distance from the cabin. Enjoyed lots of fishing and had a fish fry with everyone. Fishing was very good. Covered slip to keep the boats.

Mosquitos and horse flies were bad so hard to have a bon fire, but we tried one night just to say we did! But we knew mosquitos were bad this year. And that is to be expected for up north in Minnesota.
Had a scavenger hunt with the kids, the home and yard, was large enough to do that. Making lots of wonderful memories for the kids! Great time...

Damage deposit refunded promptly!
Would recommend this place.
Over all was a great place to stay!

GREAT HOME FOR LARGE GROUPS

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at this home in Isle Harbor. The house was very large and accomodating for everyone, and there was ample sleeping room for the 18 people we had coming and going throughout the week. The large deck and yard made for a great outdoor space, either relaxing or playing yard games. We rented a pontoon for a few days and the two slips that come with the house were right down the road with easy access to the harbor. The hot tub was also nice and very well kept - they come and clean it weekly. The bugs were very bad when we were there which is typical for northern Minnesota in late July/early August, so not much you can do about that. The firepit also had a lot of weeds, but the care takers came mid-week and mowed the lawn and cut those back. The lot was nice and overall we had a very good stay.

GREAT 4 SIBLING 7 KIDS VACATION

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at this location, but the photos were slightly misleading and obviously taken many years ago before any landscaping, trees, weeds, reeds etc. When we arrived the air was off upstairs because it froze up & in the thaw the carpet ended up soaked. The shower doors leaked and some didn't seal on the bottom, so again wet floors. The master toilet chain kept coming undone so we had to keep reconnecting it. The firepit was uninviting with weeds and bugs, so we didn't try that. The dock was overgrown with reeds, but otherwise great and the kids enjoyed many hours trying to catch minnows and crawdads. Pool cue tips were broken so we replaced them and left the extras for the property. Overall, we would definitely come again and loved many features like the hot tub and the frog serenading at night in the pond and the sound system for dance parties and bedtime for the kids. We would recommend Longville turtle races on wednesday, Duluth and Gooseberry Falls, Walker beach and shopping, but most of all ice cream every day in either Longville or Walker. Land O'Lakes sweet and salt caramel pretzel or maple nut rocks.

Owner's Response: Hi Wendy. I'm glad your group had a good experience over all. Thank you for bringing those minor maintenance issues to my attention. I'll certainly have them addressed. As with any home or building things do come up that need repair... With regard to you comments regarding the photos being misleading that confuses me a bit. All interior photos were taken in the winter of 2013 and the exterior photos the summer of 2012. As far as reeds along the shoreline are concerned there's simply nothing I can do about that. The MN DNR has very specific rules regarding the modification of lake shoreline (basically you can't). There is a sandy beach just a short walk from the home and my kids, like yours, love playing off the end of our dock. For groups I think a person would be hard pressed to find a better place to spend a week, but I'm probably biased.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME...

  • 5 of 5
The house was absolutely beautiful and incredibly spacious (there were 23 of us including children). We had a wonderful time there. We played in the back yard everyday, played pool, cards and games. The hot tub was very clean and ready to use.

While we were there, the Micro wave oven in the kitchen stopped working. The owner provided us with another one within an hour. Also, the owner was prompt on replying/providing information. We received the security deposit in 2 days.

This was the nicest place we have ever rented and would recommend this beautiful home to anyone who is looking to have a great time in a peaceful environment.

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
The photos don't do it justice! The house was the nicest place our group has ever stayed at! Everything you need is there. Plenty of space to relax in. The place was clean and it was everything that we ago expected. The kitchen was fully stocked. The owner was prompt on information and we received the damage deposit within a few days.

We will be returning for our next trip. It is well worth the money for what you get!
