About Randy Peterson

Hi Everyone! I build this gorgeous log home on Little Bass Lake in 2004. But I have had this property since 1996 and still also own a small cabin next door to this rental home. Therefore I am often and usually around - especially in summer - in case you need anything. My goal is that your stay be a happy and relaxing one.

I am originally from So St. Paul but have lived and worked for IBM in the Rochester area for years when not up enjoying the Grand Rapids area. I've been coming with my family to this area on summer vacations since I was 5 years old or so and just fell in love with the area early on. It is still unbelievable to me that Itasca county is home to 1000+ of our 10000 lakes.

Randy Peterson purchased this lodge in 2004

Why Randy Peterson chose Minnesota

As I said, I have been coming to this area with my family on vacations since I was 5 and I just love it here. I sit on the dock at nights listening to the loons, or the frogs start the croaking and I can just feel any remaining stress leave me. I hope you will feel that too. And if you are lucky, you might get treated to a northern lights display.

What makes this lodge unique

What I always loved about raising my son and nieces and nephews here was that the lake was just perfect for family. Its big enough that we could go tubing during the day while its also not so big that allowing the kids to go boating or out in the canoe alone will lead to any problems. They just really can't get lost or into too much trouble.

A most amazing place

  • 5 of 5

If you have never enjoyed the serenity and beauty of the Minnesota woods, the call of the loons, fishing and playing in a clear lake, and the togetherness of family, you need to take a vacation to this log home.

Our “cabin” (actually a log home) was wonderful with plenty of room for the 6 of us. We especially enjoyed early morning coffee in the sun room, reading on the deck which was very spacious, swimming and playing with the dogs in the lake and woods, getting chipmunks to eat out of your hand, and catching fish every time we tried. The log cabin is close enough to Grand Rapids that trips to town to eat out or go shopping were easy.

Randy provides everything that was necessary to make the stay memorable. There is internet, TV, games, and books. We were all very happy and will be returning.

Awesome Girls' Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I went to this cabin with 9 of my girlfriends last summer. The cabin was beautiful, the price was unbeatable and Randy was awesome! Randy made sure that we had the most comfortable stay - he let us rent the pontoon for the day and when it didn't start, he called his neighbor and they were about to let us use his neighbor's pontoon, but he ended up getting his working. He let us rent the pontoon for free because he wasn't home when we wanted it that morning - such a nice guy!! I'm pretty bummed that when I went to book this cabin for our girls trip again this summer, it was full :( not surprising though - now I know to book much further in advance! Thanks again for the great trip, Randy - it will be hard to beat this summer!!

Nice and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This property was a great place to have a mini getaway with close friends. Not only did it provide a "homey" feeling, but it also was really spacious and accommodating for everyone that came. All the rooms were well furnished and there were plenty of stuff in the kitchen to cook almost any dish/meal. I never needed to worry if we had brought enough for the weekend, since there was plenty stocked up at the property. If we ever were to run out of stuff, it is not a far drive to the nearest supermarket/stores.

This property also had a great view of the lake, would probably be even more gorgeous in the summer time. A few of us tempted ice fishing, but had only a few little bites. None the less, the experience was fun! We all enjoyed several meals around the kitchen and living room, along with great conversations as well.

This mini getaway was a great time to forget about the craziness of work and relax amongst a group of friends. Definitely recommend this place to all!

4 friends and I had the pleasure of renting this cabin during a snowy January weekend. When we originally came up with the idea of renting a cabin in the woods together this was literally exactly what we had in mind; its secluded, right on the water, and a beautiful space. A couple of Chefs were in our crew and we enjoyed lots of delicious food, board games, and even rented a snowmobile to rip across the lake one of the days. The cabin itself sleeps up to 10 and allowed 2 medium sized dogs so it was perfect for our needs. We will DEFINITELY be back and already have tentative plans for renting it again another time this year. One more detail: this cabin is so clean its kind of amazing how clean it is. Great Job Randy, we loved it and created some long-lasting memories and bonds at your place!
