A One-in-a-Million Retreat & Vacation Destination in Minnesota

Experience a Family-Owned and Operated Northern Minnesota Resort on Sugar Lake

At Sugar Lake Lodge, our goal is to get you out of the hustle and bustle of “real life” and into the serene, blissful state of getaway relaxation or a creative, productive mindset for corporate outings. From the tranquil aquamarine waters of Sugar Lake and free family-friendly resort activities to our spacious indoor/outdoor event spaces and state-of-the-art AV system, we’ve got everything it takes to make your summer vacation, leadership retreat, business meeting, or family reunion, truly unforgettable.


Whether your preference is a lakeside cabin, lodge room with a view, or a cozy golf villa, all Sugar Lake Lodge accommodations are located only a short walk from the lakeshore and all other resort amenities, including Sugarbrooke Golf Course.


Our menus proudly feature dishes made with fresh, high-quality local ingredients. With a wide variety of options from the lodge dining room and our full-service bar and grill overlooking Sugar Lake and the 18th hole of Sugarbrooke, we’ve got something to please everyone’s taste buds!


Most Minnesota resorts charge an extra fee for their best activities. At Sugar Lake Lodge, several of our top activities, like kayak and canoe rental, are included with your stay—absolutely FREE!
