The Dakota Lodge Retreat and Vacation Rental is one of the best in Minnesota's river country! Set on 6 country acres, surrounded by woodlands and fields, wildlife abounds all around us. It is not unusual to see a Bald Eagle or Hawk sailing overhead or hunting in the fields. Listen to the wolves calling to each other in the evenings, and the frogs singing you to sleep.
Trails for walking, hiking and skiing are nearby. Kayaking the Kettle River is a favorite with our guests. The star gazing is incredible on a clear evening. In the colder months the Northern Lights are spectacular.
The Lodge is a wonderful sight for a family celebration or reunion. There are five bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and a large commercial kitchen. Just across the driveway is a two bedroom guesthouse if your party is larger than the Lodge can handle.
Your comfort is our first priority, the rustic, log cabin style exterior belies its gracious, cozy interior. Each room comes with it's own bathroom, double whirlpool, fireplace and is decorated with comfort and style.
This Northern Minnesota Retreat and Vacation Rental was designed with privacy and comfort in mind. A recent guest commented that he could feel his shoulders relax the minute he walked in the front door. An avid bird watcher was amazed with how many different species he saw just walking to the front door. Our resident wild pheasants make a daily appearance.
We are located 90 minutes north of Minneapolis & St. Paul, near St. Croix State Park, Willard Munger Trail, Grand Casino Hinckley, Hole in the Wall Casino and the Hickley Fire Museum and Monument, just an hour from St. Cloud or Duluth / Superior.
You can also rent our charming two-bedroom guesthouse with a full kitchen, fireplace, whirlpool bath, satelite tv, vcr/dvd player and WIFI access.
