Welcome to the River Lodge! This beautiful custom-built home sits on a peaceful five acres on the banks of the Mississippi River. Whether you are hoping to relax and enjoy the sounds of nature while sipping coffee on the wrap-around porch, or you are eager to hit the bike trails of the famous Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area down the road, this lodge is the perfect place for you!
This lodge was built with unique reclaimed wood details throughout as well as large gatherings in mind. It features three levels with 5 bedrooms, 3 and a half bathrooms and a large kitchen/dining area that is fully equipped and ready for food and laughter. You can also walk right out of the kitchen onto the spacious wrap around porch to enjoy a meal with views of the river. In the great room with its double height ceiling and loft balconies, you can get cozy with a book or movie, or start a rowdy game of Pictionary with your group. This large gathering space is also perfect for group meetings or retreats. From the walkout basement, you can take a stroll down to the river, go fishing or enjoy a s’more by the firepit.
In the neighboring communities of Aitkin, Crosby and the Brainerd lakes area, you will find a variety of cafes, restaurants, antique shops and events throughout the year. One of the main attractions of the area is the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area (CCSRA) which is Minnesota’s best mountain biking destination, ranked Silver level by the International Mountain Biking Association. Besides mountain and fat tire biking, you can also enjoy canoeing, trout fishing and scuba diving there!
The River Lodge is a great place for groups and families all year round, whether your goal is to relax or have an adventure!
