About Norma Peterson

Hi, my name is Bruce Peterson. My wife, Norma, my sister, Renae and her husband Mark, and our 9 children altogether, bought the Totagatic Lodge in 1999! Unfortunetely, our dear brother-in-law passed in 2000 and it was decided to rent out the Totagatic Lodge to other families during the times we were not able to be there. We love being able to share this wonderful vacation retreat.

Norma Peterson purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Norma Peterson chose Minong

We chose the Totagatic Lodge first, because of the area. We are just far enough away from downtown Hayward to enjoy the beauty of the lake and surrounding woods with out too much hustle and bustle and traffic. The Totagatic Lodge is beautiful inside and out and we enjoy the privacy on a large lot with beautiful lake shore. The Minong Flowage is one of the larger lakes in the area with small "Canadian like" islands dotting the lake, that are sandy and great to shore up to for a swim. The fishing is good, both summer and winter. Great snowmobile trails surround the area. There are also,several places on the lake you can boat to for food or refreshments.

What makes this cabin unique

The Totagatic Lodge offers privacy. A large lot with wooded borders. But yet, we are 25 minutes from downtown Hayward, an hour from Duluth, minutes to many great golf courses and so much more. We love the spaciousness of the Totagatic Lodge. There is plenty of room for the whole family to be together in comfort whether in the great room, kitchen and dining area or on the large deck. The Minong Flowage offers a bigger lake for boating, fishing, swimming, canoeing and kayaking, and water sports, in the summer. We enjoy ice fishing, boot hockey, snowmobiling and cross country skiing, in the winter. We love it and think you will feel the same after staying at the Totagatic Lodge!

Beautiful and spacious getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of adults together for a reunion and this was the perfect place. There was enough space for everyone to spread out and enjoy time away in the beautiful woods. The house was large and well equipped with everything you need to cook and entertain. We loved time on the pontoon and were able to dock at the sandy island for swimming on a sandy and shallow area of the lake, and dock at the local lake front bar for drinks! We also enjoyed the kayaks that were provided. We would highly recommend this cabin for your next getaway, and we hope to return again!

Beautiful Property!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for anything more, this property was perfect! Norma and Bruce were very friendly and easy to work with. We were new to the area and they were very helpful with information on what to do and what the lake was like.

The Minong Flowage is a very nice lake and not busy at all! We rented the pontoon and the paddle boards as well and were on the water every single day! We enjoyed all of the water toys provided as well! We had four families (16 people) and there was plenty of space, one more room would have been nice but we were able to make do. There were lots of common spaces that were able to accommodate all of us which came in handy on rainy days.

Overall, our stay was fantastic! Thank you so much!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Totagatic Lodge for a week in June. We had 13 people and we were very comfortable. The Lodge is modern, clean, spacious, well appointed and it has gorgeous views. The sunsets were a highlight of our trip. Owners are kind and accommodating. Fun day trips nearby. Just an all around great place to take an extended family on vacation. Thanks for the lovely week! Highly recommended!!!

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family and extended family went to the Totagatic Lodge for a week in August. We had 12 people and the accommodations were perfect. From the view from the balcony, amenities in the lodge, pontoon, lake, restaurants/bars on the lake, scenery, etc., it was an amazing trip. We would definitely go back and highly recommend the Totagatic Lodge to families or groups that want to get away to a wonderful and welcoming place.

Family paradise

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic, to our cabin home to the lake water. Everything was as expected if not more. Kids loved swimming off the dock and the pontoon rides around the flowage and especially docking at the island beach. We fished with not the greatest luck, but still fun. We utilized the kayaks, the canoe, and most of all the pontoon and fire ring outside. Inside the pool table was used daily, along with the screen porch and fooseball table. Can't say enough of this place and it's location, beauty in the sunsets and the woods. Brother in- laws also where fortunate enough to see a black bear cub run across the road. I recommend this place.

Fall color Book club getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, We had a great time! The cabin is a home, it has everything you could want. Beautiful view of the lake from the floor to ceiling windows and vaulted loft family room. Very spacious and well appointed. More than one sitting area if you felt like getting away from the group to read or rest. Large kitchen with large island and dining table, easy to prepare meals and gather. Travelled with 8 women and we each had out own bed, which was ideal. We drove over to stone lake for the Cranberry Festival with about 20,000 other people ;-), but it was a fun afternoon. Listened to the Loons at night and good trails for walking during the day. Easy drive from the cities. Owner Norma was responsive and helpful answering all our questions prior to arriving. Would recommend, and hope to return to enjoy in the summer.
