After this year’s fishing opener we’ve heard non-stop about how much fun people had! Check out the feedback by looking at our Facebook to read the stories, people already can’t wait to come back! Well, it is walleye season of course and we really can’t think of anything tastier to get excited about. Use that opening day for an updated profile picture or keep to hang on your wall! When you’re ready to set the pole and net down for a few hours consider checking out the area around Northland Lodge! When you’re staying with us you won’t have a lack of things to do. Our lodge offers many amenities but if you want to veer off site–you’ll have plenty of activities to choose from! Berry picking, gambling, tours, golfing, state parks, and more! Wherever you go, you’ll have the time of your life!
Shopping small is always interesting and we know if you’ve ever gone berry picking you know what we mean when we say instant gratification. Blueberry Meadows offers baked goods, canned or preserved food, crafts and/or woodworking items, herbs, fresh fruits, and fresh vegetables. Lavalier’s Berry Patch offers strawberries, cherries, blueberries, apples, pumpkins and other garden produce we sell. Last, Lunemann’s Luney Berries Strawberry offers strawberries, bakery products, maple syrup, jam/jelly/spreadable fruit, wild rice, gift shop, and canned goods. Different products are offered at different points in the year so you’ll always have something new and interesting to try.
On vacation, sometimes our competitive sides show, especially if you’re booking with a friend group. Whether you want to win some money or it’s just for fun, we’ve got options for everyone. Get ready to compete against your friends and/or family at a competitive price at Thunder Alley XL. With a bowling alley, 18 holes of mini golf, and an arcade there is something for everyone. If not mini golf there are TONS of different 18 hole courses in the area including; Eagle Ridge Golf Club, Pokegama Golf Club, Sugarbrooke Golf Club, Blueberry Hills Golf Club and many more! Looking to up the stakes? There are an abundance of casinos nearby. Cedar Lakes Casino, White Oak Casino, and Northern Lights Casino are all within an hour driving distance. You might win enough to pay for the trip! No matter what type of gaming experience you’re looking for, you’ll find it fairly close by!
What's better than seeing and learning new things? Hikes, tours, and museums are food for the mind, body and soul. Schoolcraft State Park, on the banks of the Mississippi River, offers a beautiful 2 mile hike that is long enough to enjoy the scenery but not too long that you’re too worn out to enjoy the rest of the day. Any level hiker will fall in love. For those with littles try the children's discovery museum. A mix of science, arts, and humanities that is sure to captivate your kids’ minds. With loads of fun activities for your children, the museum is unique and educational. We’ve also got THE definitive museum for the area’s break out star, the Judy Garland museum! The museum hosts thoughtfully curated exhibits and artifacts including the original Carriage featured in “The Wizard of Oz,” a Dorothy Gale test dress worn by Judy, and many of her personal items collected over the last 40 years, all displayed within her childhood home! So many things to see in the area.
As you can see Northland Lodge is surrounded by fun places and things to do for everyone! We know you’ll find something that’s the perfect fit for your plans.
We’re not sure what’s better; the feeling of a well-deserved win, or a relaxing vacation… At O’Reilley’s Northland Lodge, you can have both, at the same time!
After the freezing temps and mounds of never-ending snow, we’ve been waiting for the long winter to be over. And we know you have too. You don’t just want, you NEED a low-stress relaxing vacation with the family. At Northland Lodge, we have you covered. With plenty of activities for the adults and the kids to enjoy, the whole family is set for a good time! We’ve even made your trip easier by offering boat and pontoon rentals! No more hassle of loading up the truck after work before you hit the road. Just pack your bags and head to Lake Winnie!
“You can’t please everyone,” is a saying we’re ready to challenge. That’s why we offer a range of activities for everyone in the family. In the land of 10,000 lakes (11,842 to be specific), Lake Winnie is our personal favorite and we know it will be yours, too. Our beautiful, man-made lake is surrounded by scenic undeveloped shores and undisturbed nature. We truly believe everyone deserves a chance to spend time on Minnesota’s 5th largest lake. That’s why we offer free use of canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards to everyone that stays with us. A perfect way to keep the kiddos busy while you kick back with a cold one, snag that monster fish, or just enjoy the view. From the tweens to Grandpa, everyone will have something to do.
Boat/motor rentals are made available to not only make your life more enjoyable, but easier! Thinking about exploring the lake on something a little bigger but you don’t have a boat? No problem. Torn between the hassle of hauling your boat and getting to see all of Lake Winnie? We’ve got you. Learn more about our Boat and Motor rentals! We won’t let anything hold you back. The warm months go by so fast, and we want you to feel the sun on your skin and be able to jump right in and enjoy the lake. Maybe, you want to feel the tug of a fishing pole in your hand and the excitement in your chest as you question what’s on the line. A Walleye? Perch? Perhaps, the biggest muskie you’ve ever seen? A story to tell forever.
Want a break from the lake? You don’t even have to leave the resort to find something to do! Grab a cold drink, a book, and enjoy the sunning deck. Dip your toes or cannon ball right in our heated swimming pool! If you’re really adventurous, we might see you splash into the water from our waterslide! Maybe you prefer to stay dry, we got you covered there too! Take a visit to our lodge and enjoy a round of ping pong, pool, or a video game, who can resist? With the kids occupied, mom and dad can get some laundry done using our coin-operated machines, or enjoy some alone time, whatever sounds better.
Forget loading up and hauling the camper. Ditch the thought of having to pitch a tent. We have fully furnished, air conditioned cabins for you to take full advantage. For the days you just want to hang out inside, you don’t even have to leave for a meal. All cabins are equipped with a stove, microwave, pots, pans, dishes, a coffee maker–heck you don’t even have to bring the grill! We’ve got cabins for a romantic weekend for two, or cabins that sleep up to 12 people! Perfect for a trip away with friends or family, or even a wedding party home base! Everyone will enjoy the breath-taking lake view no matter where you are. If you are bringing a boat, we’ve got free dockage if you stay the week! No need for compromises at Northland Lodge.
Book your vacation as soon as possible, you deserve a win at Lake Winnie.
