Stayed a couple of nights on the top floor and yes historically correct, in their slower season of September, perfect views, perfect hospitality, great food suggestions for dinner elsewhere when there dining room was in private function mode. I was mainly in town to Ride the Paul Bunyan State Trail (did a great easy 80 mike RT). Birchmont is definitely...

My husband and I took a quick day trip to Bemidji. We wanted a romantic room with whirlpool, fireplace, and view of the lake. We got it all. The water pressure in the shower was not real strong but the jets in the whirlpool worked great. The staff was friendly in pointing out restaurants and sites to see. The room...

I found out very last minute that I had some vacation time to burn through by the end of the week. We decided we wanted to head up north to see fall colors. Lucky for us Ruttger's had an open cabin. It was right on the lake and had a fire pit for making s'mores. While the cabin itself felt...

Spent two nights at Ruttgers a few weeks ago . Just after labour day so restaurant was shut down. Went with three girlfriends and stayed in a cabin with two bedrooms, 4 double beds and two full bathrooms. Perfect. Cabin had a great deck, steps from lake Bemidji. Cabin was clean and had everything we needed. Will definitely be going...

My husband and I attended our nephews wedding in Bemidji over the Labor Fay weekend. Several of us stayed at Ruttgers Birchmont Lodge. The two of us stayed in a one bedroom cabin along the lake. The cabin was very quaint and comfortable. It had a nice layout- with a spacious bedroom and king size bed in the back, and...

When you pay $150/night for a room in Northern Minnesota, one expects that the room would be big enough to walk around the bed without grazing the television or open the door without it hitting your hanging clothes - but that's not the case in the lodge. We were lucky that the weather cooperated and spent little time in the...

A true classic. This place is old and original. If your looking for polished and new this is not for you. Wishing I would have brought our kids here when they were kids. Our room was clean and comfortable. The view is awesome. A very eclectic place which is a resort. Not a hotel or motel!

We found this place by accident and what a stroke of luck! While the old lodge is a bit shabby around the edges (starting with the need for new carpets), the bedding and bathroom was as clean as a whistle and the price was very reasonable considering that you are right on the lake with a lovely swimming beach and...

Food is amazing! We love staying at Ruttger's each year and the Grill is anything but just a grill. Steaks, seafood, salads, burgers and sandwiches, they have it all! But, if you go, you have to try the ribs-the best we've ever had! The resort is also great. Not fancy, but family comfortable. Breakfast is included each day and the...

We were in Bemidji for a conference and did not stay at Ruttger's. However, we did have dinner here a couple of times. The location, right on the water, was a huge draw for us. When you're in Bemidji, it seems like you need to take advantage of being on the lake as often as possible. The food was good,...
