The Ruttger Family's tradition of hospitality goes back four generations, to 1898- that's more than 110 years of historic family resort operation in Minnesota.
Ruttger's Birchmont Lodge is located on the northwest shore of beautiful Lake Bemidji, just north of the bustling college town of Bemidji. Nestled in the lake and forest region of north central Minnesota, Bemidji offers the solitude of the north woods but the amenities of a much larger city.
Ruttger's is the perfect place for your romantic retreat, family resort vacation, or family reunion. The resort's accommodations include lakefront rooms, suites, town homes, a whirlpool suite with fireplace, and cottages with 1 to 4 bedrooms, all spread out along our 1700' natural sand beach. Our guests enjoy the terrific golfing at the many nearby 9 hole and championship 18 hole golf courses.
The resort lodge and cabins are spread out along a beautiful natural beach. Ruttger's offers a host of summer activities including fishing, swimming, sailing, water-skiing, sail boarding, canoeing, kayaking, and much more. In the summer months the resort also offers a complimentary supervised children's recreation program. Children love the supervised hiking, bonfires, treasure hunts, and other planned events, most provided at no additional charge. Resort guests are also welcome to use the resort's basketball court, canoes, and basic kayaks FREE of charge. So ENJOY!
