The Lodge is a private 4 bedroom, 2 bath home that can comfortably accommodate up to eight persons. It was originally designed as a guesthouse to welcome the owner’s personal friends and family. The rustic interior is beautifully appointed with furnishings from the owner’s extensive personal collection and is accented by hunting and fishing memorabilia. A large sun porch with unobstructed views overlooks a quiet bay on Wilson Lake. It opens into a vaulted ceiling living area with 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.

Ruffed Grouse Lodge is located in Elk Township, within three miles of Phillip’s town center. Elk is situated 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, the Lodge’s adjoining sister property, now has a newly built, beautifully appointed, one 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.
The COTTAGE AT ELK RIVER FARM overlooks the Elk River and has very private access to a two mile secluded stretch of the river. There is a private boat launch for the use of 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.
WE HAVE A UNIQUE FEATURE NOT FOUND ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE NORTHWOODS!
'Karesansui' is a Japanese word meaning 'dry landscape garden’. At Elk River Farm, a 19th century barn foundation has been transformed to create a miniature stylized landscape through the carefully composed arrangement of indigenous rocks, water features, moss, pruned trees and bushes and small stones that are raked to represent ripples in water. The garden is meant to be observed from a vantage point outside the garden. It is intended to imitate the intimate essence of nature and to serve as an aid to relaxation and the contemplation of life. The owners are students of Sukiya lifestyles and are delighted to share this special feature of the farm with interested guests.
Walking trails through the forest connect Ruffed Grouse Lodge and Elk River Farm. 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 the 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 and has a free, sheltered, heated dog kennel for dogs staying with their owners in the Lodge for which there is a $20 daily charge.

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.
