The space

This cozy bunkhouse suite is just 5 minutes from charming Bemidji, one of the most popular lake communities in Minnesota, and home to the famous Paul and Babe! This suite is located on 26 acres of property right on the pristine Mississippi River. This 2 bedroom suite has one full bed, two single beds, a bathroom, and a kichenette. You will have a private entrance to the bunkhouse suite which is located above our detached garage. During your stay, you will have access to the Mississippi River (Stump Lake) and the Lake Bemidji and Lake Irvine chain of lakes. We also have private trails on the property for your enjoyment. Come enjoy the charm of northern Minnesota in your own private spot on the Mississippi River!

Interaction with guests

Minimal interaction, we like our guests to feel welcome and at the same time respect their privacy. Of course, we like to be there to let you in and give you a lay of the land!

Other things to note

We do have a puppy named Olaf who is an ivory lab retriever on the property. Olaf is VERY friendly and loves people, he loves to be petted and loves attention. However if you or anyone in your party is uncomfortable with dogs, please let us know as we can keep him tied up and away from you during your stay. Olaf is always tied up when we leave the property, but when we are home we let him roam around the property. Please let us know if this is a problem for you or anyone in your party as we like to accommodate everyone!

We also have chickens on the property, they are in their coop during the night but roam around during the day. If this bothers you or anyone in your party the same rule applies: just tell us!

Thank you!

Our #1 request is that guests respect our place and treat it as if it was their own, leaving it as nice as when you arrived!

Access: Feel free to use our dock, river access, fire pit (located behind the house to the North) and fire wood, trails on the property, yard games and toys in the garage, and if you have questions on other things you would like to use, just ask!

Clean-up: We ask that guests leave the bunkhouse as they found it, clean! There are detailed check-out instructions in the bunkhouse that upon completion will guarantee you get your full damage deposit back.

Safety: Our bunkhouse suite has up to date smoke dectectors, a carbon monoxide detector system, as well as a fire extinguisher under the kitchen sink, and a first aid kit under the kitchen sink as well. Please use the dock and river access at your own risk, be safe! Always have children accompanied by an adult. We have two docks, one that is metal that is free to be used, and the other is wood and is under construction, please don't use that one! It is not safe at this moment.

Finally, we don't allow pets or smoking at this property.

This place is a beautiful and tranquil get-away! All the benefits and privacy of the great Northwoods and yet close to town. This is definitely going to be my go-to place to stay when I travel to Bemidji.

We had a very nice stay at the Bunkhouse. It was cozy, bright, and warm and just the right size for me and my husband. There were deer everywhere on the drive out there! We did not have any interaction with Ben and Laura while we were there but we certainly appreciated the opportunity to stay there.

What a nice place! Close to downtown but still felt very encased in nature. Quiet property. Rooms were clean and nice!

An incredibly quiet and private place with a sweet dog and chickens. My boys loved having the outdoors immediately available. The bunkhouse is a very clean and efficient use of space. Perfectly sized for three. And the hosts are very kind and easy to work with.
