We had reservations here for a snowmobiling getaway last winter. It was very cold when my husband & I arrived around 10:00, after driving over 5 hours. We looked forward to a good night's sleep. After hauling our suitcase & all of our snowmobile gear into our room, we looked around. The room was filthy. It looked as though whomever vacuumed the place never got very close to the walls, due to all the dirt & crumbs in those places. There were what looked to be squished centepedes on the walls, I presume still left over from the previous summer. There was a dried urine spot on the toilet seat, indicating that it hadn't been cleaned since the last guests. We discovered the shower had no water, and the cruddy-looking sink had only cold water. We informed the girl who checked us in, and she seemed embarrassed & called the owner. He finally showed up around 11:00, but seemed unwilling to do anything. The girl showed us another room, but that one did not have any water at all. The owner basically shrugged his shoulders & said he couldn't do much, that maybe the next day someone could look at the water problem. No one offered to help us as we hauled all of our stuff back out to our vehicle. We ended up staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Bemidji, which I would highly recommend.

We stayed for 1 evening in the Main Lodge at Ruttgers. The lodge has the feel of the original filming set of "Dirty Dancing" as well as the rest of the resort. We found everything to be clean, updated (enough) and all staff friendly. We had a small room with 1 king size bed and a small bathroom overlooking the lake and pool. The view was great, only complaint was the king size bed is actually two twins pushed together and was not real comfortable. The price of our room also included a breakfast buffet which was very good! I thought it was exceptionally reasonable and very cozy! I would highly recommend this for an overnight stay or entire weekend. They also have many cabins available which I understand you can get a pretty good rate on last minute bookings. Some with fireplaces and whirlpools!
