- Year Round Lodging
Located in beautiful Itasca State Park, we operate our historic log lodge hostel through a partnership agreement with the Minnesota DNR, since 1992.
Exposed log walls, beautiful furnishings and appliances, hardwood floors, stone fireplaces and modern group kitchen and bathrooms create a uniquely comfortable lodging experience. Guests find it clean, comfortable and totally relaxing.
The hostel sits on the shores of Lake Itasca, just a two minute walk to the beach, or a 20 minute walk to the Headwaters. Across the street is Itasca Sports, your source for all bicycle, boat and recreational rentals.
The hostel sleeps 31 people in 6 private bedrooms - each with 4 to 6 bunk style beds. Families/couples may decide to reserve a private room, the south wing (18 beds) or the entire hostel (31 beds). The hostel continually ranks in the top 10 hostels nationwide for cleanliness, safety and quality.
The modern kitchen is large enough to handle big groups with 3 sinks, 2 refrigerators, 2 stoves/ovens, 2 coffee pots and all the cookware, dinnerware, cutlery and utensils you will need to feed your friends and family. There is a large dining area just off the kitchen with room for everyone.
Attractively furnished, comfortable common areas are available for gatherings. There are three bathrooms (two womens, one mens). Don't miss our fireplace lounge/library after dinner, a great place to catch up with friends or a book, or play games. Gas furnaces and central air conditioning ensure year-round comfort.
Come join us in the heart of Itasca State Park!
