Originally built in 1921 and renovated in the 80s, the main lodge is undergoing renovation once again.
The Main Lodge is the hub of all resort activity at Ruttger’s. As one resort guest put it, “Stepping into the Main Lodge is like stepping back into time.” Little has changed in just under 100 years! The huge moose heads and 50″muskie have been keeping watch over their lobby for longer than most of us have been alive. The wicker furniture and huge stone fireplace are all original. Guests using their wireless laptops to check stock prices and the world news seem a little out of place. There is a lot of old mixed with new here. Lakeside dining and The Cove Lounge are located in the lodge along with the summer office and store. If you are unsure about events and activities, ask our front desk staff. Or just relax in our lobby next to the fireplace with a good book and enjoy the view.
The renovated main lodge will have three types of rooms. All are located on the 2nd or 3rd floor with beautiful lake views from private balconies. The main lodge is now serviced by an elevator!
Pets: Pet are not allowed in the Main Lodge, Cedar Lodge, or any other indoor common areas. Pets are allowed in the cottages and villas for an additional $20 per pet per night, with a maximum of two pets per unit.
All of Beltrami County’s public facilities are smoke free.
Due to this county-wide ordinance all rooms, cottages, and villas are non-smoking accommodations.
