Northwoods in Style

Whole Lodge Getaways or Just Time for Two

- welcome to spider lake lodge -

Spider Lake Lodge creates a casual, romantic atmosphere with a Northwoods Lodge flair.  Built by hand in 1923 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Lodge consists of 8 distinctively designed guest accommodations split between two levels.  The main level is comprised of four guest suites plus the Kitchen, Great Room, Living Room, and Lake Porch.  The lower level houses two guest suites and two guest rooms plus the Club Room and Sauna.  All guest accommodations comfortably sleep 2 people.  Ted's Treehouse Cabin and the Carriage House Cabin provide even more space for those who desire it.

Our mission at Spider Lake Lodge is to provide a unique, casual and romantic lodging experience in an authentic, historic and beautiful log lodge.  There is no room service or daily maid service, but when we meet you upon arrival you can expect a friendly greeting and story or two, and our favorite recommendations for a good dinner.  After you've enjoyed some of the best the area has to offer, we invite you to return to the Lodge to a comfortable bed and a hearty breakfast the next day.

So, to the busy executives, outdoor adventurers and romantics who seek out the unique experience offered at Spider Lake Lodge...we invite you to stay at the Lodge and look forward to meeting you soon.  We are very proud of the efforts put forth to preserve this historic and architectural treasure and we are honored to have you.

- national historic register -

Spider Lake Lodge was purchased by Robert & Carolyn in 2018.  The building, in need of major restoration of the original logs, roof, foundation, drafty windows, and mechanical systems, was fortunate enough to gain new owners who began a loving journey to preserve the historic elements of the Lodge.

After the extensive, six-month renovation project - carefully managed to preserve the integrity of the property, architecture, and history - the Lodge was awarded the distinction of being named to the National Register of Historic Places in 2019.
