Own a Little Piece of Heaven -

Historic Wilderness Lodge

This is an exciting and rare opportunity to own your private retreat in the Northwoods of Minnesota.  Located on the shores of pristine Turtle Lake in Itasca County, and surrounded by the peace and solitude of the Chippewa National Forest, the historic Wilderness Lodge offers you privacy and serenity among the towering pines, just 35 minutes north of Grand Rapids MN.


The Wilderness Lodge is one of the last remaining full log structures

of it’s kind in the area. The main lodge building has over

4500 finished square feet of living space, all of which has been

renovated to offer all of the modern conveniences while retaining

the rustic Minnesota Northwoods charm you’ve likely only experienced

in the movies or magazines.


The Wilderness Lodge is currently run as a bed and breakfast and

spiritual retreat center. In addition to the lodge building, there are

three fully updated log cabins located on the property, each fully

appointed with kitchen and bath facilities and decorated in keeping with the log cabin and luxury north woods tradition.


                                                                                          You will enjoy over 260′ of hard sand shoreline on                                                                                                                  pristine Turtle Lake with your own private beach and                                                                                                             panoramic south west facing views of the lake and the                                                                                                         Chippewa National Forest.  Turtle Lake is over 2200 acres
