Last minute discount vacation lodging

The closer the date, the hotter the deal.  Check this page regularly for new last minute Northern Minnesota resort vacations at discount prices.  Hot deals are used to fill vacancies. Please do not ask to cancel an existing reservation to book a Hot Deal or to rebook a hot deal at a lower rate the following week if the hot deal gets hotter.  When the hot deal is booked, you are locked in at that price.

Bargain hunters’ note:  If you do not see a hot deal for the exact unit and dates that you require, that does not necessarily mean that the unit is sold.  It just means that a hot deal is not available for the dates you would like.  Call us, you may still be able to book the hot deal you see and add additional days at the regular rate.

Reservation Cancellation Policy: Ruttger’s Birchmont Lodge is a destination resort that relies on advance reservations, we are not a roadside motel. We have a very limited ability to resell cancelled room nights on short notice. When you make a reservation, we agree to hold those accommodations for you. You are responsible for your accommodations for the full length of your reservation. If you choose to cancel or leave before the end of your contracted reservation, you will lose your deposit. Our cancellation policy is as follows: you must cancel a minimum of 30 days prior to your arrival date between Memorial Day Weekend and Labor Day Weekend. The cancellation policy for the other seasons is two weeks (14 days) prior to your arrival date. You must obtain a cancellation number when cancelling your reservation. If you cancel within the 30 day or two week period, you will forfeit your deposit. Your room will be released back into our inventory to re-sell. If you cancel your reservation prior to the cancellation deadline, your deposit will be refunded less a $40.00 cancellation fee. During the winter months, a reservation may be cancelled at any time up to 6 PM the day of arrival with no loss of deposit if the cancellation is weather related. (snow storm). However, under these circumstances, you must call and cancel your reservation.
