vacation rental description

Lady Slipper Lodge
Wow! Vacation homes like this don't come around very often. The
Lady Slipper Lodge is located in the Chippewa National Forest in
north central Minnesota about 3 and one-half hours north of
Minneapolis. The nearest town is Remer which is about 5 miles from
the Lodge. The Lady Slipper Lodge offers privacy and serenity on 30
acres of woods and trails on a point between an 80-acre lake and a
60-acre lake. The Lakes are called Upper and Lower Milton and they
are connected by a navigable channel at the end of the point. The
Lodge is the only home on one of the two lakes and it shares the
other lake with only one other lake home. All the rest of the land
all around both lakes is National Park, state or county
land.

Lady Slipper Lodge

If you like peace and quiet, this is the place for you. You will be more than a mile from the nearest tar road at the end of a 1/2-mile driveway where nearly the only sounds you will hear will be those of nature. You may see occasional boat on the lake because there is a public access and it is a great fishing lake for sunnies, crappies, bass and northern. However, unless you are there on a
popular weekend, there is a very good chance you won't see another
person at all.

The Lodge was built in 1996. It has 23' high vaulted ceilings in the great room and an open foor plan so people in the kitchen can still be part of the activities. The walls in the great room are knotty pine for that "up north" atmosphere and the walls of the 3-season porch are cedar with a wonderful aroma.

The Lodge is a 2-story walkout with a deck on 2 sides. The upper level is the main living area with 2 bedrooms with queen-sized beds and walk-in closets. The kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with normal necessities including seasonings. The large bathroom includes a shower and a jacuzzi tub. The 3-season porch can be used for extra sleeping space when needed.

The lower level also has two bedrooms with queen-sixed beds in each room, one of which has a single twin-size bunk above the queen-size beds. There is also a fouton and a hide-a-bed in the lower level. Also, if you have so many people that some kids get to sleep on the floor, we have provided cushions for sleeping that can be found underneath some of the beds and used in the 3-season porch.

You will also find an 8 foot pool table with a ping pong top in the lower level of the Lodge. A large washer and dryer are also located in the lower level to make your stay more convenient.

There is a floating dock on both sides of the point and each have a  bench seat.  So whether you like sunrises or sunsets, you will always have the best seat in the house. Comfortable outdoor furniture is also provided as is a stainless steel table outside for cleaning fish.

activities and attractions in Remer Minnesota

Lady Slipper Lodge

As the name implies, this land was blessed with Minnesota's state flower, the Showy Lady Slipper. In fact, one year we counted 685 blossoms. So, for the nature lover, you will enjoy our many trails throughout the 30 acre estate and the wide variety of wild flowers that abound. You will also likely see bald eagles, deer, ducks, and many song birds, which you may feed with the birdseed and feeders provided. You may also see the local otters and trumpeter swans. Also, be careful of deer on the road as you drive the 5 miles from Remer to the Lodge. Also, if 30 acres is not enough to tire you out, you can hop on and hike nearly all the way across Minnesota on the North Country Hiking trail that runs right along the lake.

Also, help yourself to any of the cross country skiing equipment at the Lodge and enjoy the many trails both on and off the estate. For the boater with 4-wheel drive, you can launch your boat right on the property. You can also enjoy the 17' canoe, kayak,  two small fishing boats and the pontoon-style paddle boat at no extra cost. Also, on a hot day you can feel refreshed swimming from our 106' floating dock to our carpeted, stainless steel swimming raft. The Lodge also offers for rent a 20' pontoon boat with a 40-horsepower power trim  Mercury motor for $250 a week. You will have a full tank of gas, but we ask that you leave a full tank for our next guests also.

For the fisherman, the lake offers fantastic fishing in both lakes. The lakes are deep with the deepest hole being 54 feet, and they are fed by a small river from a nearby lake. Our guests have caught sunnies nearly a pound, crappies more than 2 pounds and northerns more than 12 pounds. The lake has given up some whopper bass too. Fish from a boat in one of the honey holes or from the end of one of the floating docks. There are also great walleye lakes nearby including famous Leech Lake and Big Winnie. Milton Lake is also known as a great ice fishing lake for crappies and northers.


For the hunter, this area offers some of the best ruffed grouse habitat in all of the USA. The logging that has taken place in the Chippewa National Forest over the last 20 years has created fantastic edges of popple, gray dogwood and other grouse favorites. There are also large stands of oak as well that attract all kinds of wildlife. Also, if it's not hunting season, we have cleared an area at the top of a high hill where you can enjoy shooting clay pigeons. You will need to throw them yourselves though. There is also a dirt pile which makes for a safe spot for target practice.

Deer also have made an amazing comeback in Cass County so much so
that the Minnesota DNR has allowed liberal licenses for the deer hunter. Although only bow hunting is allowed on Lady Slipper Lodge property, the adjacent Chippewa National Forest offers miles and miles of trails and forest where hunting is welcome - just don't forget your map and compass.

The many miles of wilderness in Cass County also make it one of the state's best areas for black bear hunting. If you like bear hunting, be sure to stop in at the Trading Post in Remer and see the trophy taken by one of Remer's own hunters.

If you have an ATV or snowmobile, this is the place for you. The Chippewa National Forest offers nearly unlimited riding potential. You can ride right from the Lodge to the Soo Line Trail and take that NW to Cass Lake or SE to Moose Lake. There are also hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails and logging roads that are open to ATV's. Ride south to Outing or East to Hill City or explore any of the many trails in between. Also, the Blandin Paper Company generously allows ATV's on its hundred square miles or so of forest near Grand Rapids.

One of the main reasons many people come "up north" is to enjoy riding their ATV's and the Remer area offers many trails and roads where ATV riding is allowed. There have been, however, some recent restrictions by the Minnesota DNR and the Chippewa National Forest and therefore we highly recommend that if you plan on riding ATV's on your vacation, that you check with the DNR and the Forest Service to make sure your intended trails are open to ATV's.

The Minnesota DNR has been busy placing signs in the various state parks that will say whether a particular trail is open or not. The Chippewa Forest Service has also been doing that, but they are a little behind. The Forest Service tough has printed a large free map that shows the trails that are open to ATV's in the Chippewa National Forest. You can get one by contacting the Forest
Service at the link below. If you plan on riding ATV's in the area around the Lady Slipper Lodge, you definitely should get a copy of this map. We will have one at the Lodge and we would be happy to send you a copy of the part of the map around the Lodge. Some of the roads around the lady Slipper Lodge are county or township roads where the Chippewa National Forest Rules may not apply, so its a good idea to also check with the DNR to make sure you
are familiar with the state's rules regarding ATV's as well.


For the golfers in your group, this area offers some of the best
up north courses around including Rutger's at Sugar Lake in Grand
Rapids and several other smaller courses near Remer and Longville,
Minnesota.

Also, if you have a taste for nightlife, the Northern Lights Casino in Walker is just 30 minutes from Remer and there are some very fun kareoke bars in and around Remer where you can impress your friends. Also, if you get tired of frying fish, Remer also offers several fine restaurants. Or for those of you who would rather stay close to home, there is nothing quite like a campfire with
complimentary firewood supplied.

For the ladies, you will be able to enjoy yourselves all day about 30 minutes from Remer in Walker where you will find many exciting and unique shops. There are also many interesting antique shops in Crosby which is 42 miles south of remer on Highway 6.

For the kids, if they get tired of swimming with our large inner tubes, canoeing or catching fish, there is a treehouse for them to play in as well various outdoor games such as beanbag toss and croquet.
