Big Timber Lodge

Fishing is great, but if you do not like fishing, nature is abundant with Bald Eagles, the call of the Loons and beautiful sunsets. Our hosts Dave and Gerry are the best. Our cabin was clean with great views of the lake. We plan on visiting again next year.

We absolutely loved our stay here. Beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. The owners are the best...... Felt like visiting family. Already planning our next getaway to Big Timber Lodge. Thank you for a much needed vacation.

I've stayed on 3rd Crow wing Lake for 40 years, and Big Timber for part of my stay for the past three years. The rustic cabins sit on top of a bluff with a sunset view. The benefits of this resort are its sandy weed free shoreline with no inshore drop off, and excellent new docks. Great for families with young kids. You have easy access to 3rd, 4th and 2nd Crow wing, and possibly 1st as well when the water is up. You can always find fishing away from the waterskiers. Bass averaging 3#, Northerns of 2-5# prolific, and large Bluegills and Crappies are abundant too. New owners Dave and Jerry appear very ready to please, and their new motors and rental boats are great. We have reserved again for next year.

I have to say that Preston and Penny are the best. They accommodated our request to spend just one night before heading to another resort about 46 miles away. We are so glad we did. I have come to believe that a resort is not a place, but rather the people that own and operate the "place". The cabin we stayed in was clean, neat and had a great view across the lake. I would recommend Big Timber Lodge to anyone, and I would especially recommend they stay at least one week rather than just one night. Thank you Penny and Preston!!! Fred and Joanne.

Room Tip: Looked to me that any cabin would have been great. We stayed in #4, and while the cabin did not hav...

My husband and I loved the amazing sunsets we viewed from the dock and our cabin. Having an eagle fly by topped it off. Very clean cabin! Friendly, caring and accomodating owners (Preston has an amazing radio voice). The short hiking area in the woods was great after a meal. Easy trip to go out to eat in Dorset, Nevis or Park Rapids. Itasca is a great option for more of a nature fix too. We hope to return next year!
