If you value your privacy and don't want to be surrounded by other vacation cabins, WildWood is the place for you! We have only the suite to rent so there are no other cabins or vacationers to spoil your get away time. There's so much to do in Northern MN ; hiking in the woods, spending time away together, watching the sunsets, star gazing in the dark, dark skies of the North woods, kayaking, biking, swimming, etc. Make your reservations for the 2018 Spring, Summer and Fall season now so you are not disappointed that the week or weekend is taken. Book your stay early. $150 per night plus MN sales tax is the cost to secure this 2 room luxury suite on a premier lake just outside of Park Rapids. (site of the Governor's Fishing Opener of 2013) There is a two night minimum stay.

The suite won a decorating award from 'Better Homes & Gardens'. The suite features a king-size bed, double Jacuzzi tub and a warm terry robe. In the morning make your coffee in the additional room and enjoy it at the little breakfast area or on the outdoor deck while watching for the first eagle soaring above.

About Liz or Phil

We are a retired professional couple who moved to FishHook Lake 22 years ago to open a B&B on our property. We had a great time and were featured on the cover of 'Lakes Alive' magazine and in many newspaper articles. When our grandchildren were born we decided to close the B&B and spend more time with family. Now 16 years after we closed the B&B we are offering the private, king sized suite as a room rental only so others can share in the beauty and peace of the Northwoods.

Liz or Phil purchased this lodge in 1996

Why Liz or Phil chose Park Rapids

The Eagles' Nest suite gives visitors an opportunity to experience the Northwoods at it's best. It is private, quiet and restful. Because of the closing of so many of the resorts in the area we recognized that it's difficult for visitors to find a room on a lake that is close to golfing, biking, kayaking and swimming.

What makes this lodge unique

When staying in the Eagles' Nest our guests are able to listen to the loons, watch the eagles and other birds. Guests may prepare their morning coffee and enjoy sitting on the private balcony. There are no other vacation cabins . If they like biking, golfing, kayaking or swimming it is readily available. The suite also offers WiFi, cable flatscreen TV, a hairdryer, a small refrigerator , Keurig coffee maker and microwave. Adirondack chairs are on your private deck or down by the lake for guests to sit and relax and watch the sunset!

Tranquility and Freedom from Disturbance

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in town two nights for my nieces wedding and couldn't have asked for better accommodations! The private suite was immaculately clean and the king size bed was so comfortable. WildWood is in a perfect location, with spectacular views. We were extremely happy with our stay and highly recommend it.

Peaceful, romantic getaway close to everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place. The attention to detail is fantastic. My husband Chris and I had the perfect stay for our "mini moon." We went out on the kayaks, went hiking at the Itasca state park (about a 25-minute drive), went to the Character Challenge Course (high ropes course with zipline) and had a wonderful time visiting the shops downtown Park Rapids. Liz and Phil were fantastic hosts and were very helpful throughout the entire process. Chris and I are hoping to come back to do some more exploring and relaxing. Thank you so much for everything!

Beautiful suite on a gorgeous lake!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at Liz and Phil’s paradise. They are so pleasant and accommodating people. We biked the Heartland Trail, golfed at Headwaters, swam and kayaked in clear Fishhook Lake, and enjoyed our private, quiet and clean suite in the evenings. We will be back!

We were looking for a place to have some peace during a multi-day family reunion in Minnesota. Liz and Phil's place was perfect in every way. Clean, quiet, nicely decorated, and with everything we needed. The perfect lake place, and with gorgeous sunsets. I'll never forget sitting on the deck the last morning of our visit, looking at the glass-smooth lake and listening to the loons and wildlife. We had a terrific stay!
