Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Battle Lake - Brickyard Lake Lodge

Enjoy And Explore Battle Lake, MN. Located In The Heart Of Lakes Country.

The Brickyard Lake Lodge is a spacious five bedroom, two level, 2200 square foot home that sleeps 12-14. Recently remodeled, the interior of this home is finished nearly entirely with knotty pine siding, giving an appealing cabin- up-north feel. Enjoy our three-season enclosed porch, second-level deck and lower-level deck and cozy fireplace. The Brickyard Lake Lodge is a perfect destination for crafting: quilters and scrapbookers can enjoy large-group retreats. Be sure to ask about our off-season 'scrappers' & quilters rate. This retreat would also be an AWESOME family reunion site!!! There are two bedrooms on the main floor - one with a queen, the other with a full size bed. The bathroom on the main floor is spacious with a corner style whirlpool tub. The second floor has three bedrooms featuring queen (2) and full-size (1) beds. The second level bathroom is very spacious, with a tub/shower combination. Both levels have large living and recreation rooms, each with flat screen TVs (local cable TV). The upstairs living rooms has a pull-out couch available. Sheets and towels are provided. Main floor kitchen has sink, stove fridge and dishwasher. Upstairs kitchen has sink, stove, and fridge.

Admire the beautiful views of West Battle Lake to the east and Silver Lake to the northwest.

The Lodge's location is unbelievable; just one block from the Battle Lake Public Pier where you can cast a line or park your boat for the day. The Battle Lake public beach, park with picnic area and fun playground, and the boat launch are only four blocks away. Swim and play in the crystal clear warm water of West Battle Lake; your feet will love its sandy shores.

The Brickyard Lake Lodge is located on the Glendalough Bike Trail, a 12-mile, family-friendly loop trail that connects the City of Battle Lake to Minnesota's newest State Park, Glendalough. We are also within 20 miles of the Central Lakes Bike Trail.

Have fun making your way along the six-block path into historic Battle Lake. Along the way, visit the statue of Chief Wenonga, tour the Civil War Museum and the 'Prospect House'. Enjoy a variety of shopping, eateries, and the many activities Battle Lake has to offer. Check out the weekly concerts provided by the Lakes Area Community Center and the fun-for-the-family Turtle Races on Thursdays and Saturdays.

Ask for more details about the Brickyard Lake Retreat. The Retreat, available in 2017, is a charming and cozy 1-bedroom cottage that is basically the Brickyard Lake Lodge's little sister (AKA mother-in-law's cabin!).

There is a large garage available for storage and boat parking, as well as an outdoor campfire area (we provide the fire wood, you just need to bring your supplies for smores . :)

Memorable vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 families with children ranging from ages 2-10. There was so much space for our large group. The kids camped out in some of the open areas and had a blast. There was enough room for the kids to play and watch movies (in the upstairs living room) while adults were able to visit and chat downstairs. We were comfortable and happy to be there and agree we will try to make a stay there for next summer as well. Thanks for the excellent hospitality.

My family came from Denver, Minnesota & North Dakota for a family get together. We had Grandpa & Grandma and 4 families of kids from 9months to 14 years old. It worked great. Thank you for all the fun memories.

Brickyard Lake Lodge makes a Great MN Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful MN getaway for my family. The Brickyard Lake Lodge was spacious yet cozy and fully stocked with towels, bedding, cookware, games and books - everything that you need for a relaxing vacation! The beds were comfortable and the lodge offered plenty of gathering areas to meet as a family. The location is perfect - within walking distance to downtown Battle Lake which is full of quaint shops and restaurants and of course the beautiful lake! There are bike and paddle board rentals available in town. The owners were very pleasant and accommodating. I gave 5 stars based on three criteria: cleanliness, location and atmosphere. The lodge was very clean, well situated and had a wonderful atmosphere. If you are looking to create family memories, this is the place!

Crafting Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Scrapbooking with a group of friends was an awesome experience at the Brickyard Lake Lodge! The house had everything we needed for the weekend and there was plenty of room for all of us to work on our projects. I will certainly come back for some more scrapbooking and I'd also like to return in the summer months to experience more of Battle Lake.

The Brickyard Lake Lodge in Battle Lake MN is a wonderful place to enjoy a Minnesota vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I arrived in Battle Lake very late on a Thursday night and we were thrilled to find The Brickyard Lake Lodge as the perfect "getaway" for our next three days in Minnesota. Jimmy had never been on a fishing trip before and the first thing he said to me was "Dad, this place is Awesome!" The lodge is very large, yet they have accomplished a cozy "cabin" feel as it is decorated in a rustic manor with spacious living rooms with very nice furnishings. The kitchen on the main floor has newer appliances and the pantry has all of the tools necessary to make "eating in" simple. The lodge can easily accommodate two families and has all the space you would need to let everyone spread out and enjoy some relaxing time away from it all. Jimmy and I were in Battle Lake to enjoy some late season fishing on several of the lakes in the area. This property had everything that we could ask for and had several nice discoveries of unexpected conveniences along the way. When I rate a property, I have two main criteria. First, it needs to be clean, and second, did the property leave a positive impact on our trip. The Brickyard Lake Lodge delivers in a big way on both of these points. After several hours on the water each day, Jimmy and I couldn't wait to get back to the lodge to relax in total comfort. The owners are very friendly, accommodating and are very willing to share their local knowledge to help you get the most enjoyment out of your vacation in Battle Lake. Jimmy and I are already looking forward to returning to The Brickyard Lake Lodge, but next time with our whole family.
