Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday lodge in Cohasset - Rice Lake Lodge

Enjoy quality living while exploring the North Woods.

Rewind and Relax, this peaceful lake home is totally private. Right on Rice Lake, one of Itasca county's best wilderness lakes, deep, clear and quiet but conveniently located only 8 miles from Grand Rapids Mn. It comes with 4 bicycles and 3 boats on a secluded part of the lake. It is perfect for 1 to 4 people and it has a spectacular wilderness lake view. I keep it very clean, a smoke and pet free environment, all paved roads for easy access. It is located on a private 2.5 acre lot with 475' of lake shore. Year-round total comfort, relax while exploring northern Minnesota. There are 2 large bedrooms, each with a queen bed and two windows. The living area is on one level, easy access for seniors. It has electric heat and central air or lake breeze. The patio deck facing the lake is shaded in the afternoon. A vaulted ceiling living room faces the lake with 3 recliners and a futon couch. New ceramic tiled bathroom with a one piece shower and tub. WIFI, 55' HDTV, Internet app DVD with Android Miracast, phone and new furnishings throughout. The large kitchen is well stocked with a flat top stove and double ovens and a dishwasher, microwave etc. Open dining area, with a game table/bumper pool, all with wilderness lake view. The porch has a good selection of life jackets, and rods reels with a fish/game cleaning area and freezer, Fire pit with wood provided, a charcoal BBQ grill and the scenic paved lake frontage road is great for walking, jogging and biking.

Rice Lake is spring fed and crystal clear, known for it's great fishing. It has a maximum depth of 68 feet and over 800 surface acres. More than ten miles of winding quiet wilderness shoreline to explore, free use of my 14 ft fishing boat, Coleman canoe, and Ercoa 10 ft pontoon paddle boat. Life vests, paddles, oars. or bring your outboard or you can rent one. There is a public boat landing on CR 242 at the west end of the lake if you bring your boat.

About Joe

Lifelong resident, retired, you will have your privacy but I live only one mile away if you need any assistance. Free guide assistance, experienced 30 years "Joe's Monster Guide and Garage".

Joe purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Joe chose Minnesota

I remodeled my family guest house into the ultimate vacation getaway! It is located across the lake from our farm so you have total privacy. I welcome clean responsible guests when not being used by my family and relatives. It is very special and a perfect getaway place to relax in quiet comfort. I rent it out for retirement income.

What makes this lodge unique

Just outside the Chippewa National Forest, lots of hunting areas, use of my boat and canoe to fish hunt or explore Rice Lake. There are 4 bikes for short rides.

Peaceful, relaxing, wonderful lake home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing week at Joe's lake home, very quiet, private and peaceful. Fishing was great and the bass & crappie were delicious! (Most of the time we had the lake to ourselves.) Shopping in Grand Rapids was convenient. We also went antiquing in nearby towns. Joe was very nice and made us feel right at home. The lake house was comfortable, very clean and had everything we needed and more. Overall it was the most relaxing, enjoyable vacation we have had in years!! This was the first time we had tried Home Away services. Now we look forward to returning to this wonderful lake home.

Beautiful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a magnificent place to enjoy a relaxing vacation. The cabin was very nicely decorated and very comfortable. The view of Rice Lake from the cabin is beautiful. Joe was very friendly and met us at the cabin when we arrived. He explained everything we needed to know in detail and then left us to enjoy our vacation. Joe was always very responsive to any requests we had throughout the week. We were blessed with beautiful weather and great fishing. This was the most relaxing vacation I've had in many years. We look forward to coming back next year!

A Quiet Cabin with Lots of Charm

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I shared a very relaxing long weekend in this quaint cabin on Rice Lake. We particularly enjoyed watching the sunrises over the lake every morning. The cabin was comfortable and every need was attended too. The location was also nice as we were able to spend a day in Grand Rapids as well as heading down highway 2 to Bemidji. We loved our stay!

Great Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a great stay at Joe's Rice lake lodge. Very comfortable and relaxing for the two of us and plenty of room for at least two more. Caught some really nice fish right in front of the cabin. Very nice place within 10 min from town in case a person forgets anything they need, or want to go out for dinner. We also made a 20 min drive north of Grand Rapids to the best Cross country ski trails I've ever been on (Suomi Ski Trails in the Chippewa National Forest). Joe is an excellent host and made things really nice for us, he recommended great fishing spots and the ski trails that we both enjoyed very much. Highly recommend staying at Joe's Rice Lake Lodge, and we plan on seeing him again next year.

Serene, relaxing get away!

We had a wonderful time here. Joe was very friendly and accommodating, the place had everything we needed and more. Very clean and comfortable. The view from the living room and deck is beautiful. We enjoyed just relaxing here for a quiet get away, and did some antique shopping in Grand Rapids, great stores! We very much enjoyed staying here and look forward to doing so again in the future!!
