A Modern Take on a Classic Family & Fishing Vacation...

Eagle Nest Lodge is based on a Minnesota tradition, and each year they both get better and better. Resting on the Big Cutfoot Sioux, this resort will captivate your family with its variety of watercraft and 600 feet of the finest natural sand beach in the region. Its series of organized programs will entertain the kids - and you - including outdoor activities and naturalist adventures. Here your days are filled with water trampolines, hydrobikes and sand volleyball; if you like, take out any of a wide range of rental fishing boats and enjoy spectacular walleye and muskie fishing in any season. Cozy housekeeping cabins provide modern comfort while still maintaining a classic lake-cabin feel.

One of Eagle Nest Lodge's many highlights is its swimming beach, a rare natural sand beach among miles of undeveloped shoreline. Here are 600 feet of sand and plenty of hydrobikes, tubes, kayaks and a RAVE water trampoline. Enjoy a game of sand volleyball; there's even a full playground.


At Eagle Nest Lodge, great customer service translates into fantastic family fun. It's much more than just the complimentary watercraft, the on-staff naturalist, the sand beach and the RAVE water trampoline. It's a continued commitment to celebrating the classic family getaway, year after year.


Eagle Nest Lodge rests on Big Cutfoot Sioux and the adjoining Lake Winnibigoshish, renowned as the best fishing lakes in Minnesota. And its carefully developed rental packages include boats, motors, batteries, dockage & more, all overlooking a bay that's ideal for fishing even on windy summer days.


Eagle Nest Lodge transforms the natural wonder of Big Cutfoot Sioux Lake into a spectacular family and fishing getaway. The beach is all natural sand, the water is clear and clean and you have 2,800 acres of lake as your playground - not counting the adjoining 70,000-acre Lake Winnibigoshish.


Eagle Nest Lodge is a terrific place to experience the outdoors. There are no telephones or TVs here, and the resort's naturalist will interest and entertain you and the kids on daily trips through the heart of the Chippewa National Forest. On the lake, you're bound to see pelicans, loons & eagles.


This is as much a romantic retreat as a family playground. Eagle Nest Lodge features intimate one-bedroom cabins with knotty pine interiors, cabins with wood-burning fireplaces and miles of quiet, undeveloped natural splendor all around. In winter, more than 20km of skiing is just our your door!
