Fall is well underway across Minnesota, and anglers are gearing up for the upcoming ice fishing season in Lake of the Woods. The beginning of finding ideal ice fishing sleeper house rentals and Lake of the Woods resorts for booking memorable ice fishing trips is upon us and we are here to help! Discover what kind of accommodations best fit your needs and get ready for an unforgettable northern Minnesota adventure with River Bend Resort.
Choosing Your Lake of the Woods Accommodations
The main aspect of any excursion that will either make or break your trip is finding the right accommodations for your stay. Whether you enjoy everything there is to experience about the outdoors or prefer to venture out at your leisure, there are plenty of options to make sure you are happy and comfortable throughout the duration of your adventure.
For those that prefer hitting the ice at their leisure, The Walleye Inn offers suitable motel-style accommodations that still offer easy access to the ice. Wake up in a cozy single queen, double queen, XL double queen, a queen suite, or a jacuzzi suite room and make your way down to the lobby for a quick breakfast before heading out onto the water. Whether you are on a solo mission or an outing with your best fishing partners, you can choose the style of room that best fits your needs and rest easy knowing that everyone is comfortable. Take advantage of the free parking, easy internet access with our WiFi, and amenities like TV, HBO, a microwave, coffee maker, and refrigerator that are available in every room.
Not the motel type but prefer to return to land? River Bend Resort has a line-up of cozy cabins waiting for you to make yourself at home. Located on the banks of the shores of the Rainy River right at the mouth of the Lake of the Woods, you can wake up and get ready before heading out the door and hitting the expanse of frozen lake right outside. Each cabin is equipped with all of the comforts of home like full kitchens that are fully stocked with cooking utensils, an oven and stove top, sink, full-size refrigerator, and a washer and dryer for your clothing. River Bend Resort also has an RV camp onsite if you would rather bring your own accommodations. There is a bath station and our guests can take advantage of the convenience of having delicious food and drinks just a hop and a skip from their doors at our very own Miles Lab Bar and Grill!
Whether you choose a cabin, motel, or RV stay, River Bend Resort offers ice fishing day houses with holes already drilled and a few items needed for your fishing experience. There is also transportation available for our guests to get you out onto the ice and settled into your fishing area. Just bring along your gear and whatever food/drinks you would like and enjoy your day of walleye fishing.
Perks of Ice Fishing Sleeper House Rentals
During the warmer months, open water fishing always requires you to return to shore to catch some Z’s and rest up for another day of fishing. The months that Lake of the Woods freezes are a whole different world and offer even more fishing opportunities because you don’t have to leave the ice from the time you arrive until it’s time to head back home. Our heated ice fishing sleeper house rentals are the perfect way to get the most out of your time with Lake of the Woods resorts. Each person will have two pre-drilled holes to drop their lines, amenities like a two-burner cooktop, mattresses, water, live bait, and a few other necessities. Be sure to bring along your gear, food, a generator if needed, and other comforts like bedding and cooking supplies. Sleep on your own schedule to catch those late night bites when fish are active under the ice, take in the snowy views, and even catch a glimpse of the night sky that often sets aglow with the dancing northern lights!
