PRIVATE LOG LODGE NESTLED IN CHIPPEWA NATIONAL FOREST ON SECLUDED LAKE.

Remer House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 11

Nestled in the Chippewa National Forest 3 1/2 hours north of the Twin Cities and 5 minutes out of Remer is 17 acres with a handscribed log lodge on Upper Milton Lake waiting for you to come relax and enjoy nature. It is a birdwatcher’s paradise with eagles, osprey, herons, bitterns and many other songbirds calling it home. The North Country National Scenic Trail intersects the driveway lending access to miles of trails and wilderness where you’ll find wildflowers, berries, grouse, woodcock, deer, bear, and timber wolves. Whether you want to cast a line off the floating dock in everyone’s “secret” fishing lake, gather around the campfire watching the northern lights or sit cozily inside by the fireplace this Northwood’s retreat is the place for you.

Amenities: Come get away from it all.. The log lodge was built in the 1980’s by the owner and her husband with the logs taken from the land on which the house stands. The shoreline with its water lilies floating alongside the dock was left natural so all could enjoy the way nature intended it to be. New Screenhouse with lakeview being constructed!

The Lodge is 2 ½ story walkout with deck around the main level. The upper loft is a bedroom with a queen-size bed overlooking the living room and a panoramic view of the lake. The main floor has an open floor plan with kitchen, dining room and living room. The gas fireplace is ready with a flick of a switch. There is also a bedroom with twin beds and a full bath on this floor. A spiral staircase leads to the lower level that has a bedroom with queen-size bed, a family room with pull out couch, full bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room.

Down at the lake is a floating dock with a Otter Island Swim raft, along with a paddle boat, 2 kayaks, and a 12 ft aluminum row boat.

Activities and Attractions: Birdwatching: Many of the most sought-after birds in North America can be found. These include the Great Gray Owl, Bald Eagle, Boreal Owl, Northern Goshawk, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, Black-backed Woodpecker, Boreal Chickadee, Gray Jay, Connecticut Warbler, Yellow Rail, Herons, Bitterns and Swans. In the winter you can also see the Snowy Owl, Northern Hawk Owl, Northern Shrike, Gyrfalcon, and Snow Bunting, crossbills, redpolls and winter finches.

Fishing: Fish right on Milton or other area lakes, Graves, Sand, Thunder, Woman or Long Lake which are minutes away. Minnesota’s premier walleye lakes, Leech, Big Boy, Winnibigoshish are within a 40 miles radius.

Boating: Bring your canoe, kayak or motorboat for the many area lakes. Boy River, 10 miles away, is a canoe route; maps available through the Chippewa National Forest.

Photography: Whether its wildflowers, birds or wildlife you are sure to find many subjects to snap. DNR has been doing a wolf/ deer study just out our backdoor.

Fantastic Hunting and Birding Lodge: Northwoods Log Lodge is a prime area for bird watching, bird hunting and big game hunting. Special rates for hunters. Public land out your doorstep for 5 miles. National Scenic North Country Hiking Trail runs down the dirve into the house. Close to Johnson Lake Grouse hunter hiking trails and numerous logging roads. Pheasant hunting game farm within 15 miles. Big Rice Lake just south of Remer for duck hunters and many pot hole lakes in Chippewa National Forest. Deer hunting paradise out the back door on owners land.

Quiet retreat

We stayed at the lodge for a week. It is large, very comfortable, well equipped. There is a delightful, screened gazebo overlooking the lake. The location is secluded, with only one other house on the lake. The hummingbirds, it seemed like dozens of them, were a special treat to watch, constantly fighting for space at the feeder on the deck. Mrs. Menefee was a pleasure to deal with. We did some sightseeing, including to the headwaters of the Mississippi, but mostly had family time. It was a relaxing, entirely enjoyable and problem-free experience.

Wonderful get away. Very private and quiet. There are a lot of activities right there: hiking, walking, fishing, boating, kayaking, paddle boat, sand play, swimming. All inclusive. Cabin was beautiful and well equipped. Perfect for a 3 generation family vacation.
Owners were very helpful and quickly responded to all questions.

Our entire family enjoyed our stay at Northwoods Log Lodge. The accommodations were as stated, and also clean and comfortable.I especially liked the kitchen configuration. It was pleasant to work in, very open and a great place to serve the grandchildren breakfast. We loved watching the MANY hummingbirds but be prepared to feed them often, they love to eat !! The lodge was quiet and secluded and we loved that
the town of Remer was very close and that they had a great ice cream shop too !
Eileen was very helpful and we thank her for the welcome basket of honey, and sharing her home with us. We had everything we needed and more !!
We have great memories of making s'mores in the fire pit. The screened gazebo was definitely a plus!!
If you have the opportunity to make the turtle races in Longville you will have a fun day there too !
Thanks again for a most enjoyable get-away up-north !!!!!

Family Quality Time

The property is elegantly rustic. The home is very comfortably furnished and had everything our family needed for our stay. The swimming area is 'undeveloped' and in it's natural state. We found it beautiful, full if blooming lily pads. Our kids had no trouble paddling out to Otter Island for swimming. It was a great vacation and the kids want to know when we can go back! Thanks for the great summer experience Ed & Eileen....it made some good family memories.

Owner's Response: It gives me heartwarming feelings that families continue to enjoy the lake natural as it should be. The natural vegetation is so beautiful. I am glad you had such a great time and hope to see you all back. Eileen and Ed

This home was fantastic and we couldn't have asked for more! You literally only have to bring your clothes and food. It was very private and peaceful. Swimming at the swim dock was one of our favorite moments. Eileen was more than accommodating and easy to communicate with. We will be returning!
Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review. We are working hard at keeping the house updated and stocked with what a family would want to relax, have fun, and make it easy to do. Eileen and Ed
