About Randy Peterson

Hi Everyone! I build this gorgeous log home on Little Bass Lake in 2004. But I have had this property since 1996 and still also own a small cabin next door to this rental home. Therefore I am often and usually around - especially in summer - in case you need anything. My goal is that your stay be a happy and relaxing one.

I am originally from So St. Paul but have lived and worked for IBM in the Rochester area for years when not up enjoying the Grand Rapids area. I've been coming with my family to this area on summer vacations since I was 5 years old or so and just fell in love with the area early on. It is still unbelievable to me that Itasca county is home to 1000+ of our 10000 lakes.

Randy Peterson purchased this lodge in 2004

Why Randy Peterson chose Cohasset

As I said, I have been coming to this area with my family on vacations since I was 5 and I just love it here. I sit on the dock at nights listening to the loons, or the frogs start the croaking and I can just feel any remaining stress leave me. I hope you will feel that too. And if you are lucky, you might get treated to a northern lights display.

What makes this lodge unique

What I always loved about raising my son and nieces and nephews here was that the lake was just perfect for family. Its big enough that we could go tubing during the day while its also not so big that allowing the kids to go boating or out in the canoe alone will lead to any problems. They just really can't get lost or into too much trouble. Great in every season!

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our time at this cabin (lodge) was wonderful. It made for a perfect secluded get away. The wood fireplace, the gourmet kitchen, the quality of the lodge itself, all made for a special time in northern Minnesota. We appreciated wilderness walks where we met several deer along the way! Birds greeted us with their sweet songs every morning. We were away from the business of city life and it was grand! We would highly recommend this for any couple or family who are looking for a memorable up north experience!

As cozy as it looks!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas to New Years in this beautiful log cabin on the lake. It was even better than we hoped with 3 comfortable bedrooms a cozy fireplace that kept us nice and toasty despite well below zero temperatures outside. Read a lot, played games, and made memories with family. Exactly what we hoped it would be!

Beautiful Fall Setting

  • 5 of 5

We were here to enjoy family time in northern Minnesota. It is a wonderful log home in a beautiful setting. It is very private, and we enjoyed our times around a campfire while taking in peak fall colors. The kitchen is so very nice and well stocked. We loved the big fire place, which could be enjoyed by everyone due to the open floor plan. It was very clean and welcoming. I highly recommend! Randy was a wonderful, accommodating host!

Itasca county is known for its 1000 lakes and great hiking and cross country ski trails. There is a casino in Deer River which is 10 miles from the property. Grand Rapids is only 6 miles away with all of its benefits and activities.

Fall colors are great here in Grand Rapids area. Here is a link to the fall colors map/status :

NOTE: Town Line Road on the map above is now called Peterson Bay Road. Just take a left on that road and follow it to first right turn and up the small hill to the log home. 34882 Peterson Bay rd.
