About Joe

Rice Lake resident since 1982, now retired, I enjoy my hobby farm, the outdoors, fishing and hunting. You will have total privacy but I live only one mile away if you need any assistance.

Joe purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Joe chose Minnesota

I love RICE LAKE! This lodge is located across the lake from my farm. I purchased this guest house in 2014. I spent a year remodeling it into my vision of a Northern Lake Vacation Lodge. My family, relatives, and guests started using it in the fall of 2015. A new and perfect private lake getaway cabin! I welcome clean responsible guests when not reserved by my family and relatives. It is very special and on a secluded deep water bay. A perfect north woods location to fish or relax in quiet comfort. I rent it out for retirement income.

What makes this lodge unique

Located between the Chippewa National Forest and the George Washington State Forest, lots of hiking fishing and hunting areas, use my 14' boat, pontoon paddle-boat, and canoe to fish or explore 800+ acre Rice Lake. There are 4 bikes in the garage for bicycling. Only 2 miles to Tioga Beach and the Trout pit. The Lodge has an outdoor game area for horseshoes, badminton/volleyball, bocce ball, golf, fire pit, BBQ and hammock.

Perfect weekend getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

Rice Lake Lodge was a dream spot for our Ladies Weekend away to Grand Rapids. A beautiful setting, a spotless cabin, and all the amenities we needed-we didn't have to do anything except sit back and relax while we listed to the loons calling to each other! Joe was a great host, and readily available to answer any questions we may have had. Our group had a wonderful time, and we highly recommend staying here!

Great Time at Joe's

Second year in a row at Joe's Rice Lake Lodge = Great time number 2. We did some fishing and cross county skiing. Lake was good to us and trails were nice. Joe's place is great for relaxing and enjoying the weekend. Thanks again for a great time Joe!

Ceresco, Nebraska

Great spot for anglers

  • 5 of 5

Booked the Rice Lake Lodge for a long weekend of ice fishing. The location on Rice Lake is fantastic and Joe allowed us to take the snowmobile from the house to the lake - which was perfect. Fishing was good on Rice for Pike and on other area lakes for Walleye and Perch. Grand Rapids is an easy drive and has good dining and all the supplies you might have forgotten for the house or for fishing.

Joe met us at the house and gave us the low-down on everything. The house is well stocked and has a separate fish cleaning station, which is fantastic. Beds were comfortable as was the futon. No cable, but Wi-Fi and a smart TV if you need it.

I would definitely recommend Rice Lake Lodge to anyone looking for a get-away in the Grand Rapids, especially if you are looking to fish.

Peaceful retreat with all the amenities of home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed a weekend away and this was the perfect place. I rented a boat from the owner, Joe, and fished everyday while my wife reclined with the windows open reading her books. Very clean and full of amenities. Great fishing with a ton of large mouth bass. Cannot wait to go back. We visited in the fall but are planning a winter getaway as well. Great flat screen tv with high speed internet for the entertainment junkies in the family(me). Very nice owner, Joe, who lives close by if you need anything but definitely gives privacy. A wonderful place!
