History

Minnesota Resort Since 1900

The first resort guests arrived at Pehrson Lodge by steamboat in 1900 and they have been returning ever since. Now as then, we strive to provide the classic Minnesota resort experience.

Twenty eight lovely housekeeping cottages, nicely placed on 2000 feet of Lake Vermilion's finest frontage await you. We take pride in providing home-like accommodations and outstanding service in a setting so beautiful and peaceful our guests return year after year.

Here are some old photos of our resort from times gone by:

Anyone remember playing shuffleboard?

How about waterskiing behind a 10 horse?

The lazy, hazy days of Summer ...

Nice shoulders on that one!
