3 BR 2 Bath secluded, private Lake Log Home close to town with private beach
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. At least at the start of your stay to insure everything is up to your standards! 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 Grand Rapids
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. I also love this place in the fall through December. The fall colors are so beautiful and there is nothing like a crisp Autumn day whether you are into late fishing, hunting or sitting by the campfire or the indoor great room fireplace. And seeing all the colors from the decks is great too!
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!

Very relaxing place to spend Christmas with our family. Very clean. The fireplace made it very cozy. Lots of books to read. We ice skated on the lake just outside and went sledding. The break we needed from our usual hustle.
Thanks Tahnee! So glad you came again!
Secluded and private. Gorgeous place!
We truly enjoyed our stay. The owner was very helpful and gracious. 5 stars all the way!
Thank you so much Danny! I appreciate you coming here!
Beautiful small lake in Minnesota north woods
Beautiful log cabin home. Well equipped kitchen, wonderful fireplace with lots of wood available. No Indian summer, but we enjoyed the pontoon boat and even took a few plunges in the chilly water. Randy was beyond helpful. Great way for some Californians to get a taste of Minnesotan Lake life.
Thank you so much! Blessings! Randy
Perfect weekend getaway!
We stayed here labor day weekend (my husband, myself and our 2 kids ages 11yrs and 3yrs) We rented the pontoon which was well worth it as we went fishing everyday. The cabin is beautiful and the location was so private and relaxing! We will definitely go back!
Thank you so much Katie!
Great home and property with bonus amenities! Owner is a super good guy. Plenty of room for our group of 8. Meat market in town has awesome beef. Town is close by and has great pizza & everything you could possibly need as well. Lake has good fishing and is not busy at all. Will definitely stay again!!
Thank you so much! Can't wait to have you all back! Randy
Beautiful home, great location
Our family of 10 (including 3 kids and an infant) greatly enjoyed our stay. The home is spacious, clean and well-equipped. Plenty of outdoor space around the cabin and down by the water. Great memories at the beach too, the kids loved the sandy area and use of kayaks. Pontoon rental was very easy and while it was pretty breezy during our stay it didn’t stop the boys from going through A LOT of minnows. Thanks for opening up your place to us Randy!!!
Thank you so much Danah!
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.
