Great getaway

Very accommodating and friendly staff. Food and beverage service was very good. Canoe rentals affordable and in good condition. Two room suite was perfect for 5 people. The weekend getaway and lodge was better than we expected.

We had several evening meals here this weekend. The food is average but the view of White Iron lake in the evening is wonderful. Take your meal outside and sit on one of the picnic tables and watch the sunset.

Friendly bartender Jean?, variety of beer choices, great pizza (liked by 5 discriminating palates) and 5 star Bloody Mary's (homemade tomato mixer-spicy was wonderful) made this a very worthwhile stop. The menu entrees and Friday night Chefs specials may likely entice us to stop back before our vacation ends.

Staff here always complain about the other resorts in the surrounding area. I don't understand why. Food is OK. Nice bar.

Silver Rapids Lodge (est. 1919) is located on a private peninsula with water on three sides and access to four lakes (including the BWCA). It offers year round accommodations with lakeside cabins, motel suites and campgrounds. There is a restaurant on-site. Fantastic access to fishing, boating, hiking or snowmobiling.

You can go outside and enjoy many spectacular views, or sit inside and hoist a nice, cold beer to your lips and enjoy their great pizza! We liked the lodge a lot and would definitely go back again!

The restaurant just re-opened under new management. The new menu features homemade appetizers and comfort food as well as the traditional burgers and steaks. They also feature a homemade daily special. We tried all four homemade appetizers... WOW! Words can't describe how good they were. I say the cream cheese wontons were the best, my wife says the homemade onion... More
