Pehrson Lodge: The Classic Minnesota Resort Since 1900

Pehrson Lodge has been a classic Minnesota resort since our first guests arrived by steamboat in 1900. Ever since then, we have welcomed guests each summer to come north and enjoy the beauty of Lake Vermilion. While the resort may look a little different now, we still strive to provide the classic Minnesota resort experience.

We cherish the rich history of Pehrson Lodge. Remember, each memory you make during your stay will add to the countless memories of the resort as years go on.

Curious how Pehrson Lodge looked through the years? We invite you to scroll through these photos for a trip into the past:

Up for a game of shuffleboard? We still offer this activity!

 

How about waterskiing behind a 10 horse?

 

The lazy, hazy days of Summer. Our Sun Deck doesn't look much different!

 

Nice shoulders on that one!
