Your Home Away From Home!

The Decoy Lodge is a family-owned cabin located in the heart of the Minnesota Northwoods.  The beautiful lakes and abundant outdoor activities have long been an attraction for our family, which have been visiting the area for more than 75 years.  We frequently stay at the cabin and continue to update and upgrade furniture and furnishings to make your experience an outstanding one.  If you are thinking of taking a vacation, consider staying at our home away from home!

Why is it called the Decoy Lodge?

Our family has a long history of collecting decoys.  It started more than 50 years ago with our father's fascination with this beautiful American folk art.  A few of the decoys in the cabin were carved by him.  Parts of our collection are featured throughout the cabin, most notably in the vaulted windows and along the top of the kitchen cabinets.  Along with the duck decoys and fishing lures, our family has collected antiques and vintage-inspired pieces and have fun decorating the cabin with many of these items.  We hope you enjoy the decor and the nostalgia it evokes.
