Find the Head of Every Fisherman's Tale at Big Timber Lodge

Write yourself into the century-long story of Big Timber Lodge, a Minnesota headwaters resort! Simple comforts collide with the one-hundred year glory of an old log lodge to bring you the ultimate Minnesota Northwoods experience. Charming knotty pine housekeeping cabins with crackling fireplaces, spacious decks, and stunning lake views are threaded through the tree-studded lakeshore on 10 lazy acres of Minnesota woodland. Avid anglers delight in the 3rd Crow Wing Lake fishing, the kids in the sandcastle-land of the Big Timber Lodge beach, while everyone else transforms into the ultimate happy campers on the Big Timber Lodge lakeshore resort!

Beach

You don't have to drive to the beach when you stay at Big Timber Lodge on Crow Wing Lake. Right before your lake cabin is a large, sandy swimming beach without all the noisy distractions of boat traffic. Swim these shallow waters, sun on the shore, or boat and kayak atop the mirror-like surface of this crystal-clear Crow Wing Lake chain.

Family

Big Timber Lodge has been the North Star, guiding travelers for a full century to a place where memories are made. Cozy up to the big, fieldstone fireplace with a cup of coffee and spend a rainy day in the game room with snack bar. Or venture into the Great Outdoors to Crow Wing Lakes beaches and enjoy fishing, boating, and more!

Fishing

For more than a century, the waters before Big Timber Lodge have written many a fisherman's tale. Sample the fruitful fish offerings of Crow Wing Chain of lakes on lucky #3. These four connected lakes hold over 1800 acres of water and miles of shoreline. Hook yourself a state fish in these Walleye waters or grab yourself a scrappy Large Mouth Bass, Northern Pike predator, prolific Crappie, or a Bluegill or Pumpkinseed Sunfish!

Holiday

Big Timber Lodge is the perfect place to start your new holiday tradition. Minnesota lakeside cabins are what summer holiday dreams are made of. Roast some s'mores, smoke up some barbeque on the grill, and tell a tall tale over the campfire. This century-old log lodge resort is just minutes from the Mississippi headwaters Itasca State Park and makes for the ideal destination for your getaway!

Lake

Big Timber Lodge sits on the tranquil lake shore of 3rd Crow Wing Lake, close to the beautiful Itasca State Park. A Minnesota vacation wouldn’t be complete without some fishing, and this lake is one of Minnesota’s best, with Large Mouth Bass, Northern and Crappies. Didn’t bring your boat? No problem! Boat rentals are available right onsite at Big Timber Lodge.

Nature

Nature lovers of all ages will delight in a getaway at Big Timber Lodge. Boat traffic begone, you can hear the lonely loons by summer sunset and watch the autumn waterbugs dance in waters uninterrupted by noisy motors and spewing jetskis. Go ahead and get your feet wet and take out a paddle boat or walk the gently sloping sands into the gradual shallow waters of the 3rd Crow Wing Lake.

Cabins, Cottages, and Chalets

A full dozen knotty pine lake cabins sport the best views of the lakeshore at Big Timber Lodge headwater resort. Enjoy comfortable furnishings, charcoal grill with picnic tables, and the furnishings of home. By cricket-serenaded nightfall to the birdsong of morning, you're always just a few steps away from the soft sand beaches of Crow Wing Lake.
