Space 3,000 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 15)

* Please note that if the minimum nightly rental period ( 5 nights depending on the season) is not available on the calendar I am happy to accept shorter stays.

This has to be one of the most unique log properties in Minnesota. It was built on the site of a logging camp back in the 1920's, is almost 3000 square feet and great for entertaining large groups.

The sloping hardwood floors add character to the hand hewn beam, vaulted rooms. An expansive four season porch seats up to 20 people for dining or serene relaxation overlooking the lake. The picture windows on the 4 season porch open to create an airy, fragrant screen porch during warmer months. The large, level grassed yard is ideal for outdoor activities.

Master Bedroom - 2 Full XL w/bath, 1st Floor Bedroom North - 1 Queen, 1st Floor Bedroom South - 1 Full, Loft North - 2 Queen, Loft South - 1 Full and 1 Twin XL.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We celebrated a wonderful family time together as we extended our 50th wedding anniversary!! We (grandma and grandpa) had so much fun with Am and Jon, Ann and Curt and sons (12-9) and Carl and Kelly and girls (6-4). We cooked together, read books, played cards and had movie nights with popcorn. Uncle Curt brought his boat and we saw our grand kids try out tubing, wakeboarding, and becoming very good at it. We also did fishing (not too good), kayak and paddleboat. It was all alot of fun. But the most fun for me (grandma) was to have out family share good times all together.

Great family weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here on briar lake, and we plan to return again! Lots of fun on the lake, in the cabin, and in the yard. Owners were very responsive when we needed something, even on a holiday weekend!

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was a perfect setting for our small wedding and weekend of family gathering. We loved the private yard with the beautiful falling leaves. We enjoyed the peaceful lake, sauna and walking in the sunshine. Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space for group dinners and chatting around the fireplace.

This Briar Lake Lodge served us very well.

  • 5 of 5

On a beautiful October day our family gathered here for our golden anniversary. The long porch looking over the lake was very attractive for setting up a catered buffet luncheon--we chose the Sportsman's Inn and were well pleased. The inner living room's impressive fireplace offered warmth on a cool evening. (Wood can be purchased from a neighbor for a modest fee.) We enjoyed the spaciousness of the cabin and the solitude of the place. The lake is small--we saw no speed boats, only a couple of fishermen and a pontoon boat. The cabin has a paddleboat at its dock which we enjoyed--bring a boat sponge for recent rains. The kitchen was well furnished.

We are 30 minutes Northeast of Downtown Duluth. There are three restaurant/bars within apx. 12 miles. Briar Lake is almost 1 mile long and varies in width as you can see on our website picture on the local info tab (See Link Below). Briar is a DNR designated trout lake and stocked with Rainbows, Splake, and Donaldson trout. The water is clear and warm, (when not covered by snow and ice). Depth in the center is about 30 feet. Briar is a spring fed lake with a creek outflow on the far end. Great for boating, water skiing, kayaks, jet skis and long enough to take off and land float planes. We also have a shallow cove that has launched boats up to 20 feet in length.

Other Activities: Shopping, kayaking, Boating, Snowboarding, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa, Racquetball, Horseshoes
