Pehrson Lodge: Minnesota Resort Minnesota Vacation

Come North to Beauty

For over a century, families have shared unforgettable vacations, fishermen have plied our magnificent waters and visitors of all ages have come to Pehrson Lodge. We welcome our guests to enjoy the cherished resort trip “Up North.” While much has changed since our first guests arrived in 1902, Pehrson Lodge continues to be a fine Minnesota resort.

Enjoy the camaraderie of friends and family at an evening cook-out. Witness a magnificent Minnesota sunset by the lakeside fire ring as a loon makes its evening call. Put another log on the crackling fire as you wait for the Aurora Borealis to begin its dance. 

This is where lifelong memories are made.

"Pehrson Lodge is an annual tradition for our family. We’ve had the opportunity to stay in many different cabins ranging from small and cozy to large and spacious. All have been clean and comfortable. We’d have a hard time picking our favorite!" -Tom
