About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18-23)

Built with beauty in mind, you will love this getaway. This house is the definition of relaxation. We built it ourselves and use it occasionally for our own family gatherings but all the time in between it is perfect for you and your family to escape to the country. Located on the Mississippi River you will surely experience wildlife and fantastic view of the river. There are tons of local events year round that can be accessed on the surrounding towns chambers of commerce (Aitkin,Crosby,Brainerd) websites. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could need to prepare your own meals or you may contact us for local catering suggestions. Sunsets and sunrises are fantastic. The balcony on the riverside is very comfortable and patio furniture is provided. There is a 30X30 great room with extra lighting for late night activities. This location has been used numerous times for groups that get together and enjoy crafts such as scrap booking and quilting. Additionally this is a perfect facility to bring your church groups.

Spacious and private land

  • 4 of 5

We liked that the lodge was so spacious and private. It rained on us the one day we were there but because the living room is so big we used it to play games.

Amazing! Big cabin with a ton of surrounding property! The bank to the river is steep though.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing couple days here! Our group at 14 people and we had a ton of extra room! The main room was perfect for us to do our business, for eating and for fun and games at the end of the day! There was a big fire pit perfect for a bigger group. My guys were loud on the porches and it was no problem with the neighbors being so far away. Beds are singles but very comfy, as are the futons! The clean at the end of your stay is pretty easy as well! Giant jenga was a hit with my group and to top it all off, their was a suana and a massage room! We will definitely be back!!

The perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was even more amazing that we thought. Everything about it was exactly what we were looking for. You have the privacy you want and the space for plenty of indoor and outdoor activities. The house and all the appliances were new and in great shape. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Great work space for a large group

  • 4 of 5

We had 15 staff in attendance and had plenty of work and relax space. There was not only the large work room, but several smaller spaces to break off and have small group discussions as well.
